The Morning After...

What a wonderful birthday party! It was the best I've had in many years. And I thoroughly enjoyed every bite of my meal. And...I don't feel guilty either. And your birthday wishes made my day even better, thanks. And here's a picture of me in my size 14 jeans.

One nice thing about yesterday is that I didn't have to go to the grocery store. The friend that threw the party called me as she was entering the grocery store and asked if there was anything she could get me and I had her pick up my salad stuff. Now I can wait to get the rest of the stuff on Monday. I have to go to the dentist on Monday and that will kill two birds with one stone...or rather one tank of gas.



The new yarn I ordered came in yesterday. So I'll be spending the weekend making a pair of socks. I've never tried to make socks before so it will be fun. Boy, sock yarn sure is expensive. The price range was $5.50 to $35.00 per ball. I got the cheapest ones and it takes two balls to make a pair of socks. Can you imagine anyone having a $70.00 pair of socks? I sure can't. I hated biting the bullet and spending $11.00 on one pair but it is something different to try my hand at and I have seen socks in stores that expensive. Wish me luck.



Have a great weekend y'all.

You look gorgeous in your size 14's! I'm so glad that you had an enjoyable birthday (and saved the gas money!)

Good luck on the sock making adventure!!!! Quite honestly, if the socks were garaunteed to keep my toes warm, I'd probably spend $70! (I'm always cold now that I've lost weight!)
