Weigh-In Friday And New Fall Items

Is it weigh-in Friday already????? wow, this week flew by. This morning I jumped on the scale and it said 1.5 pounds lost this week....YES !!!! On Monday, July 12th it had been 4 months since I started this weight-loss journey. I have lost a total of 27 pounds so far...SO COOL!!!!! While I was waiting for my car to get an oil changed this morning at the tire place, I walked over to Maurices and bought a pair of jean shorts...I have went down 2 sizes..LOVE IT and also LOVE the shorts!!!! It is so nice to go shopping and want to try clothes on again....bonus!!!!!


I have been VERY busy this week trying to get some Fall items finished up. Here are some pictures of the progress from start to finish.

Pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins. The paint drying process here...it's not rocket science as you can see:)

These little pumpkin head gals are sun bathing:)

More pumpkins

Some stitches that I turned into pillow.

They are all at Country Freckles waiting for new homes now. If you are in the Rapids area, stop in at Country Freckles and see Joni and her beautiful store, she has been very busy this week filling the store with FALL.

Brent and I are headed to Spooner as soon as he gets home from work so I better get going and get us packed up. Have a blessed weekend everyone......Rhonda

Congrats on your weight loss.....I know what a tough journey it is! I've lost over 50 lbs. myself by plain ole diet & exercise ( somedays a lot more than others depending on what treats I allow myself, but hey you can't deprive yourself or that's when you get into trouble!! )

~ Thankfully I enjoy walking & incorperating it in my everyday life! I still have a good 10-15 lbs. to go, but will never give up on myself again! It is a huge accomplishment :) You should be proud of yourself!

Keep it up......
Megan
