For Everyone Who Thinks Wii is Just a GAME!!!

This is just not so...I bought my kids (and myself) the Wii for Christmas this past year.  My package included the Fit Plus addition.  I hadn't touched it or been interested in even getting to know it until this week.  My office started a Lose to Win program each person pays $10 to be in the program and it goes into a pot, at the end of 12 weeks the person and team to lose the most wins the $$$.  Well I have some extra poundage, so I was instantly in.  I have a team of 3 coworkers and we call ourselves Team Slim Possible.  Over 200 people signed up to be in the program. Whoah, that's a lot of cash!!! Well I have to split it with my team, but that is still enough to buy me some new clothes when we win!!!  Power of positive thinking.  Well back to the Wii.  I finally got into it and I'm telling you it kicked my butt.  My kids were laughing at me chase the little Wii character around on an aerobic running workout.  They were ROFLing watching me do the Hula Hoop excercise.  I do have to admit that I probably would have laughed at myself too.  Seriously though, it really is a great workout, I did different things strength training, aerobic, YOGA (I have to say I was impressed with this, and I have never done real yoga) for about 45 minutes.  I have set up a routine to do different things on different days now.  This is going to be fun and I don't usually exercise at all.  Unless you concider using an ATG tape gun or a paper trimmer excercise, yea well that's usually as good as it gets for me.  I will have to keep you updated with my progress, BTW, when I was weighed in at the start of my program my reaction was OMG!!!  I need to change that, so it's Wii, Wii, Wii all the way home baby!

So let me show you what I did last year for Mother's day for my girls (who are both mothers themselves).  I'm trying to come up with something for this year, maybe you have some ideas.  Hope you like it...and that's what it's all about for today anyway.

Really Late, Can't Sleep so I'll Post

Hey there, I'm tired of flipping channels and have been spending some time watching Youtube  videos on Scrapbooking tips & techniques.  I am so glad the internet exsists now.  It's instant gratificaation for me on ideas for my craft.  I used to have to wait for my monthly magazine subscription to arrive to get all this information and then it was just a little bit at a time.  Now I could probably spend an entire day surfing  and not see everything there is by far.  You have choices on the internet also.  If you don't like it you turn the page and you never have to see it again if you don't want to.  It's a beautiful thing.  So here I am sharing some work that I did last week.  I made this card for a friend of mine to give to her Honey for Valentine's Day.  Why didn't I make it for myself you ask?  I don't know why, I make one every year to give to my special someone and this year I don't know I just didn't do it.  Oh well maybe next year I will improve on that.  So here's my card
I'm learning to take better pictures, tip though if you take a picture on your bed you should make it first, LOL.  And that's what it's all about...

Name Change and an Arrow to some Blog Candy.

Ok so today started out on the right foot.  I decided to clean my S{crap} area trying to fit this (first pic) into this (second pic) and this (third pic) and make it look nice and not like I just crammed it in there.  This is in my bedroom the only place this armoire will fit.  I just can't believe how much S{crap} stuff I have.  As usual I got distracted, UGH!  I got the computer out to start up some music and ended up at "The Beach" just looking around there was a post up there for some Blog Candy HERE from Tanya in North Carolina.  It's for a Pink Cropadile Big Bite.   So I am posting here as that is what the rules say to spread the word on our own blogs.  Then when I started posting I looked at the name on my blog and although I really LOVE leopard print (in tasteful measure, of course) I'm really not Wild and Krazy.  Those days are long gone for me.  Fun while they lasted and no I am not sad about it, being on the wild side took alot of work and of course a lot easier back in the day.  My idea of a good time has also changed.  I had a wonderful weekend scrapping away and to me that was a good time.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not boring at least I don't think so.  Anyhoo, I changed the name of my blog to what it is now.  So take from here what you will, because that's really what it's all about.
By the way I want one of these things so bad, it would solve all my space problems.  Wondering if I could make one similar myself.
