Spinach Salad Yum Yum!

Ok, a while back I mentioned going on a diet, it did not work out too well, so I am trying it again. I really want to lose weight and eat better but there is this whole thing about feeling full. I had a huge spinach salad for lunch with poppy seed dressing and it was delicious however after about 10 minutes I was ready to eat again. I ended up filling my empty feeling tummy with Diet Pepsi, which I am sure is not good for me (filled with chemicals) but it doesn’t have calories and it tastes good. I must stick with, it but the first couple weeks are the hardest. Tomorrow it will be lean cusine and more diet Pepsi, can't wait.

I have been working on some blankets. Jim’s parents gave me a gift card to Joann’s (my favorite fabric store) and I got myself a giant vinyl (I think) cutting board, I have been wanting one for a while but they are a little spendy. I also got a pad to put on the table to iron on (since my ironing board sucks) and some thread that I needed. I went over my card a bit (or more than that but who is counting) but that is OK since I really needed all of it. Next, I want to get a good iron; mine is an inexpensive one that I got when I moved away to college. After I get a few more blankets done I will try and figure out how to sell them. I have decided that I am not going to crochet the edges on most of the blankets because it takes so much time and they are just as cute with out it. I may do a few special ones because I do love the edge ;0). It will probably still be a while before I have anything ready but I think I have some time before Little Miss gets here.
Other than that, things have been quiet around here. Jim and his friends had an air-soft battle on Sunday he came home cold but un-bruised. I also finished up shopping for my secret pal and I should get that out this week!!! It has been so much fun although challenging at times.
It has decided to snow again. I love the snow. I am not particularly fond of driving in it but I do have snow tires so it is not that bad. I just wish that they would close everything down and I could sit at home all warm and cozy and watch it snow all day.
