Seriously America.. Seriously??

You want to know why so many people in America are fat? Just take a look at the picture below. That my friends, is considered a "mini" shake. I can't even wrap my head around it, I don't know if you can tell just how large it is.. I would say it is probably about 25 oz worth of ice cream. The funny part is I was thinking that I would be "good" and just get the mini. Diet FAIL. I probably ate all but like 3 bites of it. 
{The photo to the left is me and my little sister btw}
That stupid shake made my tummy sick though:( I think I got some gluten mixed in with it. I shouldn't of had it in the first place.
 This week the weather has been so rainy. The pups and I are dying to get outside and have some adventures! We pretty much spent the majority of the week cuddled in front of the space heater.
Sammie's little diaper cracks me up every time. In the left picture Aaron is being mean taunting them with food. Poor pups.
<333 Seriously I love them.
The other day I ordered an adorable owl embroidery from my dear friend Chrissy's etsy shop Whimsical Poppysmic
{go check it out, her stuff is awesome!}
 I got it today in the mail & being the sweet girl that she is she added a little surprise. This adorable felt heart brooch! I truly apologize Chrissy for the crappy pictures. I wish I had a better camera to capture your lovely creations!
I wore my hair in braids. Bahaha. Still debating on hair decisions. Thanks for all of yoru input by the way! 
I truly do appreciate and adore all of your opinions.
When I first saw this in Chrissy's shop my heart just about melted. I love owls, and I couldn't help but think that this little embroidery would go perfectly in a nursery some day;) 
For now it will hang in my "craft corner" 
Thank you so much Chrissy!
30 day shred update: today I completed day eight! Yesterday I started doing level two just for fun. HOLY COW that is some tough stuff! Sweat was pouring down my body and dripping onto the floor during it. I feel so amazing afterwards, I have to push pretty hard to get through it though. 
I don't know if I will have lost weight by tomorrow. On Monday I went to WW and had gained:( boo.
I know it is probably just muscle weight but it is still discouraging. I had taken my measurements though and I re-did them yesterday just out of curiosity and I had gone down in inches! So although I might have gained {we'll see} I will still post inches lost as well. 
I hope you have a great night!

I used to work at a ice cream shop like cold stones. and In a large shake there would be a freaking POUND of ice cream! that didn't include the milk and toppings and stuff. Sooo nasty!
Any way your dog is super cute with her diaper. I hope your weigh in goes as planned!

Blace said...

wow! that is a ridiculously sized portion!

Chrissy said...

Love the braids! Very cute!
So glad everything came undamaged and that you like it! Thanks again, love!
Have a wonderful day! Hugs xxx

Yikes! That can't be mini! That is terrifying!
You pups are so cute! Poor babies. Steven taunts Lily with food too.
What a sweet owl embroidery. I love it!
Congrats on the loss of inches. I bet it is muscle and that is a good thing. Way to go! I want to do the 30 day shred now!

Your dogs are absolutely adorable! The diaper had me giggling, so cute! And hooray for braids! I braid my hair every now and then. Its fun. :)

Sorry I haven't commented on your blogs much recently! I've been so busy. I feel like such a bad blog friend.

Diana Smith said...

i saw a documentary about mcdonalds and wendys in the US. i was surprised because the small size cup of coke was the biggest cup of coke we have in my country.

your dogs are soooo cute!

im your new follower :)

Kinda jealous that you got to go to Sonic Burger but totally agree that their portions are ridiculously huge. :P

Your doggy's diaper is way too cute, especially in the photo where they are laying on the patchwork blanket! Little legs all sprawled.. hehe

Way to go on the exercises! I totally feel your pain in the gaining on a weigh in - Since I started my most recent slim down journey I actually have not lost ANY weight but my body is a size smaller. It's bizarre, but sometimes you just have to go by how you look, feel and of course, the inches :)

Gale said...

I MISS YOU HAIRY!! Feels like forever! First of all I'm so proud of you with the fitness thing! You're doing so well and you continue to motivate me:) Also, I hope Sammie is doing better. That post broke my heart to hear she was so uncomfortable. & I love the first hairstyle you posted on the 'hair crisis' post. You are gorgeous! Beautiful owl embroidery from Chrissy:)

Janna Lynn said...

That is a big ol shake! So glad to read about your exercising, keep it up your doing so gooooood. :) Those puppy pics are so cute, I just love it. I know its 14 degrees and was raining all day here in Michigan...so now its like an ice rink outside. I am thinking about going back to blue hair! I know, just can't stay one color to long. Hee hee hee! :) Hope you have a good night. I have to get stitching, I am working on the sample for the giveaway...:)..which I have to post tonight! Hearts, janna lynn

Ashley said...

holy smokes that is a lot of ice cream!! I'm sorry it's so rainy there...I'm wishing you and those sweet doggies lots of SUNSHINE! Oh and thanks for letting us know about the shred...I've been so curious about it. I hate exercising, though!! UGH!

That owl embroidery is so cuuuuute! :) And I love your braids... I try to braid mine sometimes but I always end up taking them down. :(

Ms.Domo Roboto said...

I seen a link to your blog on my sister's blog, Positively Positive, just thought I would give you some blog love. I really enjoy reading your blog!

posidanielle said...

What is this 30day shred that you are talking about? I think I need to try this out.

Why is Sammie in a diaper? Poor pup!

Rachel said...

i can't remember the name of the place, but we went to a new fast food get-up in provo right by the dollar theatre and got a "mini" shake - it was just like that, in a cup inside a bigger cup so it could all fit. we threw half of it away. it was ridiculous.

Breeanna @ a brilliant melody said...

The owl will look cute in a nursery!

You look so cute in your braids :)

Even if you haven't lost weight, you are working so hard at it! Good for you!

Can't wait to see what you do to your hair. Have a good weekend!
