Naughty or Nice?

Before my life was consumed with Inventories, I made a two page Christmas layout to teach at the Scrapbook Shoppe. It is on the calendar for January 8th. I have not be in to see how many spots are left (or even taken) The patterned paper is Three Bugs in a Rug. I used both sides though it is hard to tell in the picture. The gifts are cut out and popped up with foam squares. The font is a Sizzix called Cherished. I used red stickles, some bling, and some ribbon. Light blue and lime green card stock. Enjoy.

Weight Loss Update

Well I must admit, I was concerned about Thanksgiving. Yes, I cooked less, yes I had a plan but I also had pumpkin pie, Pecan Pie and skillet apples. I have to say I was proud of my self. I ate what I wanted. I did not over eat. I did not eat seconds. I did however get a great big dose of turkey coma. Lordy, Did I sleep. Right though a hockey game.

With the left over yummy veggies, I made a big pot of turkey veggie soup. That was tasty lunches for a week. Soup, Triscuts and fruit. YUM! YUM!

I gave my self a weigh in break over the holiday. Last week, didn't weigh in mostly because I was getting up every other day at 3 or 4 am for store inventories.

Then the next eating opportunity, the company Christmas Party. I filled up on water and made my choices count.

This morning I got up and weighed! Down one more pound. Not a lot you say...I say a pound is a pound is a victory.

I am pumped.

HP7 1 Review (spoilers)

Finally my friend Claire and I went to see HP7 Part 1. A big shout out Thank YOU to Ms. Liz for the treat of the movie and a snack. I really do appreciate it.

First I was disappointed that they glossed over the Dudley part at #4 Pivet Drive. I understand why they did it but, I always like the parts about the Dursely's. I like how they added in the bits of Ron and Hermione at the beginning. Showing Hermione erasing her parents memories.

The wedding part was good. I like who they cast for Bill but NO CHARLIE? wha??? why not? or did I miss it? I liked that Harry did not go undercover at the wedding and the part where Ron's Aunt goes on and on..that was very well done.

The part at the cafe was really good. It was short but I liked it. Also at the Black residence was well done. The parts with Kreacher I liked. I also liked how they added in Dobby there. That was a surprise.

Is there anyone who did not like how they compressed the "never ending camping trip" All the good parts were there pretty cool.

I do think however, the movie was compressed to such a point that if you have not read the book you might be a bit lost. I had to suppress a good many comments as Claire had not read the book. It does exactly what they need it to do, build up for the next movie which we all know....
