Who wound up the clock?

Because the time is passing by too quickly! This week has flown by. I've been remiss with taking journal photos. The journaling I have done is in between organizing for the scrapbook sale and packing for our trip to Hawaii.

On the 21 Challenge front, I've been doing great this week. I think it's due to the great report I got at my Weight Watchers weigh-in this week. Just amped up my attitude to get it done!

Crazy week bullets (cause my friend Beetle Bailey [yes that's what we all call him] told me to just tell the time; don't build the clock:

~Yes, hubby and I did eat out every blessed meal until midnight October 1st, our official anniversary!
~I found the coolest little card holder carousel thingie at the Old Lucketts Store on our big day. Hubby had his doubts until I got it home and put it into action. Photo soon if I get my ducks in a row!
~The lady we are renting a condo from in Hawaii upgraded us for free, so we'll be staying in a bigger place with a better view! Serendipity!
~My teen angel and I got into trouble today at her Rheumatology appointment for loudly counting from 1 to 5 in different character voices in an attempt to will the doctor to finally come in. They didn't appreciate our merry mirth as much as we did.
~After getting a high dollar pair of shorts on superdy-duper clearance at the Columbia Mall tonight, teen angel declared that she now understands why I get so jazzed when I get a great deal!
~My dog already knows we're leaving and has gone into clingy mode. That's okay for a lap dog, but very hard on your lap when your baby weighs over 90 pounds.
~Pumpkins are lining the porch at alarming rates. I think one may weigh almost as much as the dog! This time of year, we usually come home with at least one new pumpkin each week and keep most of them around until Thanksgiving if they haven't rotted. After that, we play pumpkin toss in the back yard. It's messy, but it's fun.
~October 14, Sunday: Scrapbook Yard Sale in Walkersville, Maryland. If you're in the area, shoot me an email and I can give you details. Come take this stuff off our hands! It's good stuff and goodness knows that we paid enough for it. Several scrappy 'vendors' will be there and it's going to be good!
Here are a few photos I took last weekend of my journal, but haven't gotten around to posting yet. More to come on the flip side. I'm so proud of everyone who's been hard at work during these 21 days!

Great job on your journal pages and your Weight Watcher's weigh in! I really need to get back onto that diet as some nasty pounds have crept back on (I wonder how that happened?)

Thank you for your encouragement and your awesome blog!
Your journal is *beautiful* !

teen angel may not appreciate you right now, but reading about your are a really fun mom and she definitely will appreciate that some day. You just both have to survive until that point. LOL!

Congratulations on making it through your 21 days!! We did it and I so appreciate your encouragement along the way.

Have a great trip!
