Wrapping Paper

My tip is very simple this week. At Target in the Dollar section, they have rolls of really pretty wrapping paper for $1.00. But they are short rolls not the normal (long) size. I have found that this is so much easier to wrap with. I save so much paper..because I am not trying to cut for 5 miles and then having to waste the part I didn't use. It is the perfect size! Check your Target 1.00 bins for the short rolls of wrapping paper.. might make your crazy Christmas wrapping a bit easier.

I did have a picture of my wrapping paper lol but my computer is not recognizing my camera for some reason.

Aloha Friday

An Island Life is hosting Aloha Friday.. I thought it would be fun to participate. All you have to do is answer the question I ask by leaving a comment. Then click over to An Island Life and link up to Aloha Friday with your own question!

My Question is:
Does it bother you if someone uses pictures of you or your family on the Internet without permission?

As a Mother, it bothers me greatly. I do not stand for that. That is why I put "watermarks" on my pictures. Especially the ones of my children. I don't think ,whether is for legal reasons or moral reasons, that anyone has the right to use pictures without parent's permission.

Netflix works for us

I absolutely love Netflix. I don't know about you but our cable company payperview movies have gone up in price from 3.99 to now 4.99 a movie for a 24 hour rental. It is ridiculous to charge that much for a movie. So we have found that Netflix has such a better deal. I signed up initially with the 1 movie at a time and unlimited online movies from their site. Which I love now that you can watch movies from their site on your computer. I did just notice my husband changed our membership to now receiving 3 movies at a time instead of 1 lol I think he was tired of me renting movies that he didn't like. Netflix is also a great gift to give someoneAnyway, we love Netflix and recommend it to any movie lover.

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...
