Fabulous Friday!

Happy Friday Everyone! It's here - another edition of Fabulous Friday! A highlight of all things fabulous that I've stumbled across over the course of this week (in no particular order, of course!).

Ya'll, I'm TIRED! I have been traveling for the past two weeks & while I used to consider myself a road warrior (and probably could still be considered one), I'm so super glad that I don't travel all the time for work now!

First things first on this edition of Fab Friday. Me! I'm going to toot my own horn. I've lost 10lbs!!! Whoo Hoo! I've been following Weight Watchers religiously & have done it! I still have more to lose, but I can definitely tell the difference already!!

The first blogger I'd like to highlight today is Kelsey from The Seattle Smith's. Kelsey host's Wishful Wednesday's every week & I've really enjoyed doing them. Not only does she pull together Wishful Wednesday's, but she has two super cute puppies! I also wanted to highlight Kelsey because this past Wednesday on one of her WW links, I came across the following blogger who is such an inspiration.

So, my second highlight for today is Kassandra of Not Your Typical, Average, Ordinary College Girl. Ya'll, this phenomenal girl has lost 149lbs simply by focusing on what she eats & exercise. She has completely turned her life around & I'll admit, when I opened up the newspaper article about her & read it, I cried (I'm SO emotional - I'm tearing up now thinking about it). She has taken what so many people would look at as a hopeless situation & changed it. I am so impressed by her & her determination that I knew she had to be featured today. Make sure you go tell her hello.

Seriously? Fall in New England is perfect. Last week I experienced beautiful views of the leaves changing colors and cooler weather that has me itching to put away all of my summer clothes. I even enjoyed my drive to Boston yesterday after a long day of facilitation. I saw trees with leaves like this
Fall in New England made me think of one of my new favorite fall t.v. shows - Eastwick. Has anyone been watching it? I think I'm so fond of it because of the quaint New England town it is based in. Plus, I love Rebecca Romjin & Lindsey price! If you're not already watching it, you should!
While it was chilly this week, it wasn't really all that cold & it had me thinking that a longer, sweater "coat" would be a nice addition to my closet. I like this one. And would it hurt a girl to smile in photos?

That's it for me for Fabulous Friday. We're heading to Richmond today after work to attend the IU/UVA game tomorrow. The weather is looking quite yucky & I have to admit, I'm so tired that I really wouldn't mind staying home & lounging on my couch. Hope you all will have a Fabulous Weekend!!

a few things.
1. Congrats on ten lbs! I know you were working hard on that.

2. I've been outta the blog world for a little while now and I am sorry I have missed out on your life. I hope the troubles you were dealing with over the summer have eased. I've missed you, but think I'm ready to be back to blogging. I'm looking forward to catching back up with you.
