Think Happy Thoughts, Think Happy Thoughts....
I find I've been telling myself this frequently since I've read the book "The Secret". Every time that something negative happens, or I get down, I repeat that phrase over and over. It was actually in a movie and I cant figure out what movie. If anyone can tell me that would be awesome. I am thinking it's finding nemo but I am not certain. Anyway It does seem to help. That combined with a whole lot of praying seems to pick me back up.

Don't let life get you down, right??? Right... That is what I am trying to live my days like lately. The days have been going by much more smoothly with my positive thinking.

Just random ramblings before bed.. :-)

You Could Win A Free Raleigh, NC Getaway
Have you every been to Raleigh, NC?? How would you like a Fall Getaway??

I have had the great opportunity to travel there a few years back. We were there for about 4 days, and there was so many incredible family activities that we could not have even imagined. We walked the city, we shopped, we went to a museum, we ate amazing food. There were so many places we wanted to go and just weren't even able to get them into our schedule. We were looking to move there at the time, so we did look into everything. There is an incredible amount of night life, plus so much to do for families I could not even write it all. I was there in the summer, but I could not even imagine how beautiful it must be in the Fall!

So many people would never think to vacation there, but it makes for such a fun filled vacation. You can win a FREE Raleigh Getaway, at
They are offering one night accommodations for two at the Courtyard by Marriott Raleigh Crabtree Valley which sounds amazing, plus some gift certificates and tickets for entertainment and food. You should visit to find out more of the amazing things you can win with this Raleigh, NC Fall Getaway! If you need or want a little break before the holidays, there is nothing better than a free mini vacation!

Tasty Thursday - Reuben Sandwichs 5 pts

This is amazing.. And I must say my husband who is a huge fan of Reuben sandwiches said this was by far the best he's ever had. It was so delicious that you would never even think it was WW friendly.. But it is one of their recipes.

4 Servings
1/4 Cup fat free mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons of chili sauce ( i used chili powder)
4 Slices of Rye bread ( I used whole wheat WW bread)
1/4 lb thinly sliced lean corned beef
1 cup well drained sauerkraut
2 oz deli thin swiss cheese slices

1. preheat oven to 400*F
2. Combine the mayo and chili sauce or powder in small bowl. Spread mayo mixture on the bread. Layer with the corned beef, sauerkraut and swiss cheese.
3. Place sandwiches on a baking sheet. Bake until the cheese melts, about 3 minutes. Eat...

So amazing.. it was so good. For More Tasty Thursday's go visit The Pumkin Patch

My Chunky Monkey Is A Cuddle Bug
My first monkey was a cuddler from the start.. He co-slept and he slept nuzzled next to my for the first 15 months of his life. He would always cuddle with us no matter what.

Chunky Monkey was never really a cuddler, never wanted to sleep with us, wants to just go and do his own thing. All of a sudden he is becoming very cuddly. Is it because I would force him so much??? Is it because even though he smacks me or pushes me away when I force hugs out of him I don't give in to him??

I don't know what the reasoning is... .Frankly I do not care one bit, because I am going to soak this up for all it's worth for as long as I can..

I love to cuddle both my monkeys!!!

Wedding Invitations...
I am in a wedding in November, one of my oldest dearest friends. Over the weekend was her bridal shower which I had the pleasure of sharing with the bridal party in throwing her. It was a blast.

They also have some favors, gifts and other personalized items to help make that special day even more special. If you have a wondrous occasion coming up any time soon go check out the invitations that they have to offer.

Weekly Weight Adventures
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
So I am up on the scale, but i've worked out hardcore 5 times within a week.. So i am attributing it to muscle gain (I hope). I also have been counting my points and I have really been working on sucking down that water!!!! I hope to see some amazing results in the next few weeks since I am working so hard on myself. I know I will, and I am excited for the time I reach my goal weight.

I have been making my weight watchers meals for dinner, I need to work on breakfast and lunch. I'll have to hit the store in a few days to stock up on some more healthy snacks. Well that is my update for the week!

To join in the challenge to Look great in 2008 visit Tales from the Scales.
