The death toll from the tornadoes in the south is over 300.

Neighborhoods are destroyed.

Homes are GONE.

Help is desperately needed in these areas.

EVERYONE can help - regardless of whether you don't have extra money to donate, or you don't live close to physically help.

Donate blood.

It's desperately needed and a FREE gift that can save lives!

Visit The Red Cross to find a donation center close to you!

I'm going tomorrow!!

Today has been a horrific day in Alabama and Georgia weather wise.

There have been more tornadoes touch down today than have EVER touched down in one day.

The death toll is already close to 100 and will probably be higher.

A MILE wide tornado went through Tuscaloosa, Alabama where the University of Alabama is located, but MISSED the campus.


And something to be incredibly thankful for on this devastating day.

We are still waiting on the storms to get to us in our part of Georgia.

Everyone stay safe.

Hugs and prayers!

Is it a CSN Review I see in my future?

I believe it is!

Spring and summer are just around the corner, and kids are chomping at the bits to get outside and play - particularly on outdoor playsets!

CSN stores has over 200 online stores where you can find anything you need, whether it be that new outdoor playset, fitness equipment or even cute cookware!

There are SO many options to chose from so I'm going over NOW to check out some cookware!

What's on YOUR wish list?

Precious Memories

AFriday was the the Father/Daughter Dance at Baby Chicklet's school.

A perfect opportunity for some pampering and feeling like a princess!

Before the dance we were off to Sweet and Sassy for the full treatment.

First, a pedicure...

Looks like she could get used to this!

Then the manicure! Although by this point she was "bored." HA!

Eldest Chicklet came home for the weekend to see Baby Chicklet off.

Those two have so much fun together!

Of course, we had to have a couple of practice dances...

And then off to dance the night away!
With a little pose thrown in...

Looks like our sweet girl had the time of her life!

Here I come!

Well, at least I did today!

My week three weigh in was today, and...

I'm DOWN two more pounds!

Thrilled beyond words (which for me is a rarity), my first thought was MORE WORKING OUT!

Crazy, huh?

But I was so thrilled with my success, especially with my Super Bowl naughtiness, that I wanted MORE of the success.

I wonder if that counts as an addiction?


Here's the weekly run down.

Week 1: -8.5

Week 2: -3.5

Week 3: -2

Total pounds loss - 14


It truly does feel awesome, and I'm SO incredibly proud of myself.

Bring it, Weight Loss Challenge.

I'm ready!

Super Bowl

NOT so SUPER hot for the weight loss plan!

Way too much beer was had by DJ Fatty Fat!

And of course if beer was had, the munchies set it.

And my NEMESIS...HOT WINGS were there to devour!


However, being the ever so smart (and modest) Fatty I am, I made my weigh in day for the middle of the week so I had recovery time for whatever bad decisions I make on the weekends!

I am a scale addict - get on every morning - and know that I'm not doing so hot.

BUT since my official weigh in date is not until Wednesday, it TOTALLY doesn't count! ;)

Fingers crossed that my GOOD choices today and tomorrow will overcome the BAD ones!

In the meantime, I'm jumping in on a Weight Loss Challenge!

It's all about the support, sistas!

Here are my beginning stats....

Week 1: -8.5

Week 2: -3.5

Week 3: See ya Wednesday!

Weigh In - Week 2

Gotta admit...

I'm liking my results!!!

DOWN 3.5 pounds!!!

Woo to the HOO!!!

Weight Loss Standings:

DJ Fatty Fat: -12

Portly Pioneer: -5

Jilly Jelly Roll: -6

Hermalinda Linda: -4

Not shabby!

Last night Pumpkin and I watched The Biggest Loser. Now THAT is some serious motivation.

I can't image being in that intense, hard-core environment.

BUT the results can't be disputed!

It really is incredible.

This week's philosophy - If they can do it, SO CAN I!

She's a STAR

Baby Chicklet is the STAR Student for her class this month!

We are SO proud of her!

A STAR Student exhibits School Spirit, Team Work, positive Attitude and Respect!

It is a great honor, and we couldn't be happier!

Only one student is chosen each month, so it is quite special!

She is such a joy to US and obviously to her teacher and peers!

Yesterday was...

A great day!

It's always nice to spend time with JUST the Eldest Chicklet.

She called a couple of weeks ago to see if I wanted to come down for the dedication of her sorority chapter room.


Well, kinda....since her school is only 2 1/2 hours from our house.

Japanese lunch (yes, NOT Weight Watchers, but it was a special day!), hanging out with EC, the dedication and a little shopping...

Yep, a great day!

My first weigh in was pretty darn successful!

DOWN 8.5 pounds!!!!

Holy crapsicles! I'm so pumped!

Portly Pioneer is down 5! GO GIRL!

Jilly Jelly Roll is down 5! GO GIRL!

Hermelinda Linda still has to weigh in...GO GIRL!


Tuesday, January 25, 2011're only a day away!

Weight in day is TOMORROW!

I never thought I'd be excited about getting on a scale, but I AM!

I've stayed on track the entire week, AND I've done p90x.

Not every day, 'cause that's just NUTS!

But enough for me to feel good about it!

So, Mr. Scale....


'Cause I am!

Party Problems?


I managed to go to a football party last night and stay within my daily points and only use a couple of my exercise points for the week!

Pretty impressive, I'd say!

I really don't like use the "extra" weekly points. I know they are there, and I can use them if I need to, but I feel like I would be cheating.

So, until desperation sets in, I'm not using them.

DJ Fatty Fat

Portly Pioneer

Jilly Jelly Roll

Hermelinda Linda

I, along with three of my good friends, decided that it was TIME to lose some weight!


So - Operation Fatty HAS BEGUN!

We've jumped on the Weight Watchers train and are PUMPED!

To put a little silly factor in, we have all decided on "Fatty" names.

Once we are new and improved skinny goddesses, we'll get new names!

Drum Roll....

Me - I'm DJ Fatty Fat.

Our leader is Portly Pioneer.

From Jersey, we have Jilly Jelly Roll!

And last, but not least, our spicy Chilean is Hermelinda Linda.

So far, so good!

Portly Pioneer and Jilly Jell Roll are a week in and doing great!

Myself and Hermelinda Linda are 5 days in and ROCKIN' it!

We had bunco last night and still managed to stay on track.

Now THAT is impressive!

Of course, throwing in a P90X session helped with some extra points!

We know it's not going to easy, and there will certainly be times we will stray from the path of the skinny, BUT here we go!!
