Happy Birthday, Baby...

Yesterday, my hubby celebrated 36 years as an inhabitant of planet Earth. He has been on a health kick since January and has lost 40 pounds! He is doing very well! He runs 6-8 miles a day and has started weight training. He looks hot, but now he has a chubby wife. What to do. I should be skinny by now. I started this blog a year ago with the intention of it being an accountability to weight loss. I'm still a fat blogger and I think I may weigh more now than I did this time last year! I do have quite a bit of money saved, though. I have been putting away $5 every week for a year on "Weigh Wednesday". Okay, this post was supposed to be about Eric and, in Melissa-fashion, I have made it all about me. Well, back to him......yesterday, we started the morning with opening presents. He got 2 new pairs of slacks, since his 36's are FALLING OFF. I also got him a plug in from Bath and Body Works that smells like coconut for his office. He has been searching for one for quite some time. Then, last night, we had hamburgers on the grill. My trophy husband has been craving a huge burger since he started his "lifestyle change". I think this baby weighs more than he has lost! Not really, but I don't think there is a cardiologist out there who would put this on a list of heart healthy fare. He enjoyed it thoroughly! Our kids act like they hate each other, but look at them! This picture would fool anyone into thinking otherwise. Even though they make me crazy, they also make me smile! I love my family! God is good!

That's one huge burger!! It looks good, though and it looks like your hubby really enjoyed it. He deserves it!! It sounds like he had a very happy birthday and I love those Bath and Body Works plug ins. They smell really good.

Women don't loose weight like men do, so don't stress. My hubby can cut change his soda from regular to diet and loose 20 lbs, how fair is that!

I say make some chocolate chip cookies, and make him beg for mercy.

You gorgeous the way you are!

Love the new look of your blog. I have no idea what I'm doing with mine, can you tell? If you had checked periodically yesterday you would've gotten a laugh.
