Biggest Loser and such

Happy Monday morning to each of you! I am feelin' great today! :) The weather is so lovely. Well, this Wednesday Tim weighs in at his work because he is going to particiapte in their company's version of Biggest Loser. And every pound they lose, the company will donate a pound of food to a food pantry. The reason Tim is so pumped is that the 1st place winner will get $600!!! Then 2nd place gets $500 and it goes down from there. When he walked into the meeting last week, he said he was by far the smallest person there, so he was feeling like he might not stand a chance at winning. But they are going off percentages like the show does. And we are thinking some people might give up because the challenge is 12 weeks long! Tim is the most competitive person I know....and he REALLY wants the $600 dollars (i told him he could buy a tv with it) we won't spend our regular money on a this is his chance! I have this feeling he will place in the top 3 spots. So, you can help me encourage him to give it all he's got! haha! Last night I was working on my dinner list for this week. And I realllllly need to go to the grocery store! I have a few new recipes I am going to try this week. I enjoy trying new recipes out. Hopefully they are a success! Hope everyone has a wonderful day! loves! xoxo

New year....freezing cold house! :(

Happy New Year friends! Well, today I am sitting on my couch, wrapped up in several blankets with the warmth of a space heater hitting my feet. Why? Our little house is only 54 degrees! Oh house! Why do you do this to us? Thursday....during the coldest week of the year....our house decided to quit heating. It got down to 34ish! Thankfully we were able to bunk with my parents for a few days! Thank you mom and dad! What a blessing. The heating guy came to the house Friday to check things out. Lots of words I don't understand....but anyway....we only have to pay around $90. I think that is a bargain. Now, we are just waiting for it to warm up. He said it was going to take awhile because it is so cold this week. I am very, very, very thankful for heat!!! Hmmmm...what else is new? Tim is LOVING day shift! He is truly enjoying it. He loves his job and is very good at it too. We are gearing up for TOC next week! whoohoo! It is a tradition. Tim and I have been going since we were just a little dating couple. It will be especially exciting this year because Hillcrest is in it and we get to watch our Thomas and Luke! Go boys! Well, I guess that is all for now. Everyone stay WARM! I am trying! I thought I would leave you with a few pics to enjoy for the past few weeks. xoxo
