I'm a winner!

I am so super excited! I learned yesterday that I have won a blog makeover from Krizzy Designs via All-American Jess! I entered Jess' giveaway, not thinking I would win (but secretly hoping I would). I love when other bloggers announce their new designs and I could spend hours pouring over them. I'm not sure what I should be going for in terms of a new look - kind of like when you debate over your hair. Should I cut bangs or not? Should I add more layers? Everyone does that right? So if you have any suggestions of what you think I should go for, please share them!

On an entirely different note, Mr. Potts and I went to my aunt's house and had dinner last night with her, my other aunt & her husband. I was excited to go since I hadn't seen them in a while, but at the same time a little nervous. Why nervous? Well, because my aunt and her husband (I guess that would qualify him as my uncle) are not healthy. There's just no other way to put it. When they eat, they eat BIG.

They love to grill steaks. When I think of steak, I like to think of a small (6oz) filet or maybe a small NY strip. When they think steaks, they like 1 1/2" thick Porterhouses. Last night, I swear to you they had to be 2" thick. I thought I would die when my uncle brought the tray out to the grill. I searched for pictures, but when you look at them online before they're cooked, they're a little frightening - kind of like last night.

So I cut the filet portion off of the porterhouse & tried not to totally wreck my WW points. I've got to plug them in now & see what it looks like. Thankfully, tonight is Cardio Sculpt, so that may help make it better!

Happy Wednesday!

Congrats on the win! I've won two giveaways so far and they both totally made my day. I'm in the process of having my blog design redone and it's actually kind of stressful! I just want everything to turn out SO RIGHT for me. Good luck with yours!

Ooh, congratz on the giveaway, that's exciting! I always also agonize over haircuts, after all, you have to live with the results for awhile. I like to talk to my stylist about options for bangs because they usually have a good idea of what will work on my face so I don't end up looking like a Cabbage Patch Kid.

Oh I HATE going somewhere where the food doesn't fit into my "healthy eating plan". Grrr. I always try to have different things when people come over, including at least one or two vegetarian options. Sounds like you did what you could though!

Can't wait to see your new design!

Yeah, congrats! Steaks are good but you are right about them being a tab bit frightening when not cooked. lol!
