I don't even want to know how many lbs I've gained this glorious holiday weekend. Oh well, I guess I'll just do 45 minutes of cardio each day this coming week. That should help a little. Plus, school will be getting ultra-crazy over the next 2 weeks. That means no sleep, not much food and alot of energy drinks. This usually results in a weight loss, although I'm not completely convinced it's a healthy method. KIDS- please don't try this at home.

Well, I'm headed to bed early tonight. I am one of those crazy black friday shoppers and I've now been up and at em for 19 hours and counting. We shopped for about 7 of those hours. And spent an hour eating. I feel pretty successful at this point. The only person we don't have a present for is Chris' grandma and brother. I also need to pick up a few little items to go along with gifts- but I had most items crossed off my list by the end of today! I also picked up some LED exterior christmas lights. They were on sale and then I got an addition 20% off (my cousin has a relative who worked at the store). Now- Chris and I just have to find the time to install a new outdoor electrical outlet in the soffet and hang the lights! I'm sure I'll post a pic when it's all finished.

So Chris and I spent last weekend in Oklahoma city and saw Coldplay on Sunday night. It was great! I ran into some work people at the concert who were dressed all cute, I was dressed like a bum. I saw no need for heels, I opted for tennis shoes. Our seats were on the floor and I knew we'd be standing the whole time. Crazy thing is, I think the whole place was on their feet for the majority of the show. I was also sick all weekend which was a bummer. Sunday I took two naps, which is completely NOT me. But it was a nice weekend, my wonderful husband took great care of me, and we finally had a chance to relax.

Here's a pic from the show.

But I thought...
that I should post.

Happy "7minutes until Thursday". Tia and gang- hope you guys have fun on your Dallas trip. Do some shopping for me too!

I'll just be singing "Lovers in Japan" until I go to see coldplay on Sunday :)

Sunny Fayettevile

Just a quick blog tonight, I'm tired but very excited about gaining an hour of sleep tonight. Chris and I went to Fayetteville today for the TU-Arkansas game. It was a great game, and of course it doesn't hurt that we came out with a win. Notice I say "we", that would be Arkansas. Yes- even though I'm currently going to school @ TU, I elect to cheer for the Hogs. I call the Hogs. Anyway, here's a picture of us outside of the stadium. I'm not certain how well you can see the trees in this pic, but the leaves were gorgeous.
