Getting Skinny, cute clothes and creepy KID PAGEANTS!.....random. :)

We're coming up on the last few days of mine and my dad's weight-loss competition, so I'm getting MUCH more serious now. (not that I haven't been pretty serious this whole time)

 I will now be posting everything I ate the day before:breakfast, lunch and dinner. If I was bad and strayed off course, please yell at me. :) Thank you. :)   SERIOUSLY. :)

Yesterday: Breakfast: Fruit cup - apple slices, mandarin oranges, grapes and strawberries.
 Lunch: Lean grilled chicken with mustard for flavor. Mustard is SO yummy!
Dinner: Tortilla soup with unsweet tea to drink. (I let the cheese sink to the bottom and avoided it. I forgot to ask for no cheese) Also, I didn't put the chips in it. Tortilla soup can still be good without the tortilla. :)
Everything else I drank was water, and LOTS of it!

Wish me luck with my healthy eating today! I did some early morning shopping for healthy food, and I'm excited about learning to love eating healthy. :)

Oh, guess what???? I wore this really cute dress for the first time today. It's been in my closet for almost a year, with the tags and all. I never wanted to wear it, because it wasn't flattering to my waistline, but since I've been losing weight, I tried it on, and it looks GREAT! My stomach is getting thinner and flatter. It is the best feeling ever. I just keep reminding myself that nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!

Ignore the weird shadows! You've probably noticed most of my pictures are taken in these funky mirrors. They're the only ones we have here at work. Anyway, isn't this dress cute? I finally feel comfortable wearing it! Yea! :)

More things I love right now....

Yeah, I'm kind of in a summery mood today, even though it's freezing cold outside!

I don't know know about y'all, but I say y'all allllll the time! :) Whoever calls it slang is so wrong. Okay, you might be right, but I consider myself quite intelligent because I'm using one word while "you all" are still using two words to say the same thing. :)  haha

Someday when I'm rich.....(and I will be!)  :)

This looks like a good workout. I'm gonna try it today. I'll let you know how I like it....Or how sore it makes me, which will ultimately mean that I like it. :)

Wow! This bracelet is stunning. You can find it at Weston Jewelry. Just a warning. It's expensive. I think it's real gold. At least gold plated anyway.

I would soooo wear this!

Sometimes simple is just the way to go! I love this whole look!

 I want these shorts....I want to MAKE these shorts. Stay tuned. :)

 So pretty. Girls always look classy in pastels....well, maybe not a pastel g-string, but you know what I'm saying. ;)
Whether you're married, single, whatever, every girl should own some sexy lingerie. It's fun to wear, just knowing that you look sexy under your clothes. Everyone should feel sexy every now and then, if not all the time. It's not about parading it around for people to see. It's about knowing you are a sexy fox! :)

Now for my rant.....

This is not attractive. When and how did it become cool to wear see-thru clothes with a black bra? It seems like everyone is doing it, and honestly, I just don't get it. Wear it at home, but not out! What do you think about it? Is it a cool style to you??? Please tell!

Alana "Honey Boo Boo Child" Thompson and her very intense mother, June, were on Friday's episode of Anderson, during which a bunch of pageant moms from Toddlers & Tiaras dressed up in all the horrible frilly-ness they make their daughters wear. These are the shocking results. And the worst part is that I think the mom actually thinks it looks good....
Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I just can't stand these shows. "My daughter needs a tan, false teeth, blah blah blah." No, they don't. They need to grow up to love who they are and embrace their unique differences. Pageants for kids are fine. Just not when the parents go over the top and drag their kids into the nightmare that they never wanted to be a part of. So many of these moms are living through their daughters. Ick. 

I got to judge a pageant once, with my sister and two other people on the panel. It was for "Little Miss Dublin," and they take it VERY seriously. Well, many parents were shocked at the winner. You see, my sister and I didn't pick by the greatest, most extravagant dress, best tan, etc. (although I did take dress choice into consideration) I looked for the little girls who looked like they were having fun, the ones that were smiling...REAL smiles. :) I loved seeing little girls up there just having a good time, feeling pretty and being the star of the show. Those little girls got the high scores from me. When you feel pretty and believe you are beautiful, then you are. :)  

After we announced the winners, we bolted. There were some unhappy parents. Everyone of course thought that their daughter should have won. They were all beautiful little girls and it was sooooo hard judging them, but I don't think the parents understood that. I mean, some did of course, but there was that select few, and I didn't want to hang around and discuss it with them! :) I was just glad that all the little girls were happy. They didn't care about winning. They just liked feeling pretty and playing dress-up. :)

More creepiness......

They will kill you in your sleep. Do not be fooled by the twinkling fake eyes and smile.....

The video you are about to watch is upsetting and disturbing. Nobody should put their child through physical pain for the sake of beauty. This is child abuse.

It brought tears to my eyes, seeing this. I thought of my sweet little niece who is close to this age, and I just couldn't imagine putting her through that!
