Random Thoughts Update

This is an update to my random thoughts post below:

- I saw a product on the Today show called Freeze & Go. It's a cream that is supposed to work like botox, but only temporarily (for a day...maybe?) so you have to put it on everyday or just whenever you want the freeze, I guess. They said it really worked, so I thought this might be my solution! So I bought it (it wasn't cheap) and it doesn't work (at least not on my problem area...which is lines under my eyes). I took before and after photos on my iphone to show you, but then I decided they weren't even worth uploading because there is no difference. I was really disappointed and I am now even more disappointed after reading about this on Darci's blog. I wish I could get my money back and put it towards that! Oh well, maybe I was just meant to have lines under my eyes. :)

- I booked our 5-year anniversary trip to Mexico! After looking at this website, I feel comfortable with our decision to go back to our honeymoon spot in Mexico...but we got trip insurance, so we can always cancel at the last minute if we get nervous about it. I'm so excited that I've been reading reviews of the resort everyday...even though I've been there myself twice already! :)

That beach bed is where I will be spending my days for an entire week.

- I am STILL running three times a week! And I finally started the Jillian Michael's 30-Day Shred DVD last night. I am really feeling motivated to get in shape for our trip. I have also sadly discovered why they tell you to only weigh yourself once a week. According to the scale, I lost .7 pounds from Monday to Wednesday of last week. Then another 1.1 from Wednesday to Friday...for a total of 1.8 from Monday to Friday! I was totally excited and then I weighed again on Sunday and had gained .4...weighed again this morning and had a gain of .7. Granted, I did eat pizza last night. :) Anyhow, it is still a net loss of .7 for the week and I think I would have felt okay about that if I had only weighed last Monday and today. We'll see what happens this week.

- I can't believe I haven't taken pictures of the house yet! Honestly, it is because I haven't felt like removing all the toys from around the house to make it look like a toddler doesn't live here! :)

That is all the updating I have for now!

Oh, how I love the El Dorado Royale! That is where we spent our honeymoon as well, and I can't wait to go back. We said it would be for our 5th, but no plan so far so maybe our 6th! Have a great time, and think of me as you lounge on the outdoor beds. I spents hours there!!!

Maegan - We are going to the El Dorado Royale...which is in between Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Let me know how it goes...I'm sure it will be great!!! :)

Kelsey - I remember telling Chris on our honeymoon that I wanted to go back for our 1-year anniversary...ha! We actually did go back for our 2nd anniversary and now again for our 5th. I wish we could go every year...or twice a year would be really good!

That sonicare brush looks awesome.I also like going to a dermatologist every once in a while and getting a micro derm and facial peel.If you dont have a great one, let me know and Ill tell you where I go. He is awesome!

I have the 30 day shread and it works wonders (when you do it). I lost 3lbs in 5 days but I started slacking off after 2 weeks. I need to get started again!

GAHHH!!! I can't believe you're going to El Dorado Royale! We went there in 2006 and 2007 but because of scheduling couldn't go back this past year. That place is heaven on earth! Did you see that they have the beach beds around the pools now?! It's awesome. We've committed to making that our favorite vacation spot for the rest of our lives. We go during peak hurricane season though so it's half price. We've been lucky so far and the weather's been perfect. Have fun!!
