Boot Camp-Back in the Saddle Again and other randomness

I start boot camp again tomorrow. It actually started earlier this week but I have had my sister and her girls in visiting and my husband had some meetings so I wasn't able to go the first day and tonight I went to the movies so I will be hating life tomorrow around 6:00pm! I haven't had a boot camp work out (except for the ones we did at church) for a week and a half so my muscles are in for a rude awakening. I have worked out pretty regularly, but for 30 minutes instead of an hour.

Anyway, I am looking forward to feeling great, losing weight, and fitting in my clothes better. I am hoping that by Christmas I will have lost 10-15 pounds or at least a dress size or two.

I love that the weather is cooling down and its starting to be "soup" weather. I love weather where you just want to come home and cuddle up with a blanket, a bowl of soup, and a good book...I love it even more when I had time to do that!

While we were at the movie tonight, a cold front came in and it was quite a bit cooler and so nice! Fall weather in Texas is great because the humidity is low, the temperature is cooler, and its football season....such a great combination.

Football season...ah, the fun days of the gridiron! The problem is that my teams are stinking up the place this year...both of them. The Aggies are in a "rebuilding" year and the Cowboys have been in an ugly stump for at least the past 3 weeks...its downright sad when we were hoping to be Superbowl contenders...and I haven't given up hope....but I am also not holding my breathe.

I have neglected my blog a little over the last week....I have to tell ya that life has been hectic! Work, home, church, and family life has just had a lot going on....its been a fun and really great 2 weeks, I have just been pooped by the end of the day. I do feel really blessed for all that I have...I know there are plenty of people in this world who have nothing, so I am grateful for what I do have and hope I can remember from Whom it came.

We are heading up to Utah over the holidays so we are starting to make hotel reservations and get our plan in motion. We are driving this year, first time I have ever driven the 22 hour or so trek to Salt Lake but my husband assures me it will be fun. I just hope that OPEC doesn't go with the Venezuelans and Iranians and raise the oil prices again, I was just being content with paying $2.50 a gallon again! Plus, it would save me a whole heck of a lot of money when you consider the trip is something like 1600 miles each way!

I have some projects to finish and pictures to post, so bare with me and hopefully over the next few days I can get them finished and posted.

I am also super stoked about my Scrap booking retreat that is in less than 30 days! This is such a fun time for sisters and friends go to a lodge out in the country and we scrapbook for like 2 days...its wonderful fun and we laugh and don't sleep much...but we accomplish a lot! We always have a few moments where we are all laughing so hard that we can't stop and then once we regain control, we can't keep it for long...laughing does a body good!

So, look for beauty in all things today or whenever you read this...the leaves are changing and the weather is getting cooler and the holidays are just around the corner.....mmmm, I can smell the pumpkin bread now!
