Week 7 - One Weekend 2 Shots

I went shopping..... for a gift for my friends birthday. We've not been friends long, not even a year...but she is great. She is keeping me supplied in boxes, offered many times to help me pack and I know she'll be here to help move everything. Tonight we are having a surprise party for her and I just know it's going to be great.

My problem in not knowing her very well yet is I'm not sure of what to get her. I want to make sure it's something she likes.... however, I had no problem whatsoever finding things for myself in these two days I've been shopping for her! This is the wonderful sack from today's purchase. I have two... count them... 1 - 2 shirts in this bag. I love the softness of the pink and blue flowers and then the colors of the other shirt caught my eye as soon as I walked in the store. How I just love lots and lots of color! Look how vibrant the pinks, blues, and oranges are! I'm not real sure what's going on with me liking the blue right now... but I'm not going to question it. I'm just going to be thankful that perhaps I've gotten past my huge dislike of blue. It's much easier to love it than to hate it!

Just looking at all the color in this photo causes me to go AHHHHHH and puts a smile on my face!

On the caffeine note.... I've had none since Monday. I can't believe it. Not only that... but no sugar as well, not even in my tea! I seriously thought I might hurt someone, but it really wasn't that bad. I think weaning myself off of it somewhat last week before I switched to decaffeinated this week really helped. We are trying real hard to change our eating habits and lose some weight. So far so good! One thing though.. I picked up the cake for the surprise party tonight. I thought standing in that bakery would be the test... ha... it's having a cake sitting just a couple of rooms away from me and not touching it! Did I tell you I hadn't had any sugar since Tuesday? As in no chocolate! Are ya pickin' up what I'm puttin' down?

I must get moving! Wishing you all a fantastic weekend!

Nice colors indeed, and I'm so pleased that you are liking blue...finally! Good for you sticking to the decaffeinated and sugarless diet. That is just great and so not easy. Proud of you, woman!
