Filling out 1000 giveaways is worth it!! lol

I have to post about this Blog Carnival that has taken place the last week or so.. I have to admit that I spent HOURS and I mean HOURS filling out over 1,000 giveaways LOL I know I know I know! lol I got pretty good at it after 500 or so lol Anyhow, I just am so excited and grateful for the giveaways I have won so far! And I want to encourage you to sign up for giveaways because YOU CAN WIN lol Believe me I always feel like I have the worst "luck" and I don't even believe in "luck" go figure lol

So I just wanted to say a BIG Thank you to Dawn from "So A Blonde Walks Into A Review" . She hosted a great giveaway, sponsored by Ellie Bellies. I cannot wait to receive my custom MUG!!

Another BIG Thank you to Flamingo Road Church! They were so generous in their giveaway. I won a $50 gas card. In which my husband is THRILLED about lol :)

And last but not least, another BIG Thank you to Joanna from JoJo's Place for her fun giveaway of Luggage Charms from My Charmed Life. I cannot wait to receive these Charms. They look so neat. I think I will use one for the diaper bag!

Earlier this week I wrote a post about my winning a Gift Certificate to Sweet Hollow Farms hosted by Lady Why. I cannot wait. I ordered hair shampoo bars, soap, and a salve.

I just can't say how much these giveaways meant to me this week. From my son flooding the kitchen GREEN, and flooding the bathroom the next day, and then my back going out yesterday lol These giveaways have been a major BLESSING in disguise! Thanks really!

Congratulations on all your great wins!! Let me know how you like the shampoo bar! I am sitting at my computer with wet, freshly washed shampoo bar hair right this very minute. I think you're going to LOVE it!!

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
