Second chance

I havn't posted in a while. Partly because I didnt' think anyone was reading my blog, and partly because I didn't feel like I had anything positive to say, so why have a negative blog for people to read? I didn't get a call from the biggest loser, and when I went back on their website last week, I saw that they REOPENED their casting call to members of the BIGGEST LOSER CLUB. SO, of course, in a last ditch effort, I joined the club, submitted another application and made a video. I have to say, my video pretty much sucked. I didn't have enough people to film me, lighting was bad, I had a lot of FRIEND issues to deal with that day, and my husband and I got into a HUGE fight that lasted HOURS. I tried to put on a happy face in front of the camera, but it was just a BAD day to film. now that I've sent it in, there are so many other things I would have loved to have done in front of the camera that probably would have gotten me on the show.
Oh well, such is life.
I am, however, still doing weight watchers, and have lost 16 1/2 pounds in the past 6 weeks, so at least that's a start. I was really sick on Monday, and that threw me for a loop, but I'm better now, and this weekend I'm going to the beach with my mom for a few days, and we're gonna hang out and celebrate her 61st birthday. (don't tell her I told you her age!) it will be a nice relaxing time!
Ok so I'm sitting here writing this, and hearing WIERD noises either coming from IN my freezer, behind my freezer, or in my cupboard, and I'm praying to GOD that it's not a mouse!!! ugggh!
Sorry, got off subject. I havn't scrapped in a while, and it's depressing, because i love it so much, and my scrap area is now clean! I am, however, reading like a freak, and have read over 10 James patterson books in less than 2 months! When the kids take their naps, I sit here and read, and am almost through a full novel in the past 24 hours. I just won an auction of James Patterson books on ebay the other day, so I have 12 more I get to read..that I'm sure I'll be done with by Thanksgiving! haha
If I hear anything back from the biggest loser, I'll be sure to give an update!

The Biggest Loser-didn't get picked!

Well, it's been 9 days, and I havn't gotten a call, so I guess I wasn't good enough for the show. I want to thank all my friends for sending in the awesome letters to the show. I think there were over 40 emails from all over the country sent in! I'd thank my family, but noone was willing to take the 2 seconds to write the email, cause their lives are so busy (I'm not bitter)

I'm thinking about printing out all of the emails (at least the ones that were forwarded to me) and mailing them in one big manilla folder to Oprah or Dr Phil, and saying that I wasn't picked for the show, but if they're doing Christmas wishes this year, to grant my wish and send me to an exercise camp or something, and providing me with a personal trainer, nutritionist, and gym membership.

In the meantime, I'm doing weight watchers and I have lost 12 pounds this month...woot!

The Biggest Loser waiting game

This past saturday, i had the opportunity to audition for the Biggest Loser show in LA. When I got there, I was surprised to see that there were only 75 people in line in front of me! woot!
I got really lucky, and waited by some really funny, sweet people. The lady in front of me was around my mom's age, very funny and very sweet, she was like a mom figure to me and the girl behind me, and we joked that we could go in there as a family team, with us being the sisters (lost at birth) and we found eachother and our birth mother right there in line for the show. Then the guy behind us said that he could be the mormon husband, and we could all be his wives...we were cracking up! I totally felt so good around these people! We waited in line for 4 hours (but it went by sooo quickly, and thank GOD it wasn't a 100 degree day!) WHen we got towards the front of the line, I saw Alison Sweenie (Sammy from days of our lives) she is the new host for the show. I've been watching days since i was a teenager, so I was really excited! I yelled over to her, and she smiled at me, and I asked if I could take a picture with her with my cellphone,,,she was so nice! We got called to tables in groups of 8 after that, and we all had 5 minutes to answer as many questions as possible as a group. I was hoping it WOULDN'T be a group setting, cause I really wanted some one on one time to stand out from the crowd! I answered the questions as best I could, trying to be funny when possible, and serious at the same time. I think I did a good job on my answers, and hope I made a good impression! I have several friends that emailed the show saying that I'd be a good candidate. I've read what some of them wrote, and it made me cry! I have such awesome friends! Now I play the waiting game to see if they call me back for the next round of interviews. Wish me luck!

Last weekend

So I am so lame....I posted those messy scrap room pics, cause my full intention was to CLEAN the area, and then post AFTER pics the next day! DIDN'T HAPPEN>>>>>>Instead, I had a sleepover party with my great friend GEENA at her parents house while they were away, had a poker party with Jason's friends and my sister and her hubby, went swimming, and took my mom and my son to go see HAIRSPRAY. It was acctually a nice, peaceful weekend for once! I'll try to find some time to clean my scrap area by the end of the week so I can finally post pics of what it's SUPPOSED to look like. I'll also take pics and post them of the fabulous scrap finds I got at BIG LOTS! Holy cow, I spent a small fortune! Now I have to have a scrap garage sale and sell some of my crap, so I can reimburse myself! haha

I was in a store this weekend, and I saw a framed piece of art that had a saying I really really loved on it. I've never heard the saying before, and if I had liked the artwork next to the saying, I would have bought it in an instant..but instead, I just kept the saying in my head till I could post it on here. It said..... "Once in a while in ordinary life, Love gives us a fairytale"

If only everyone could use their imagination once in a while, and live in that dream, fairytale, fantasy should try it! It's fantastic! =)
