I can resist everything but temptation...  
Hubby and I went to a banquet last night, dining and dancing.  Was much fun.

Have gained 10 lbs. in the last month and a half. Grrr.

God, you're so gorgeous it's disgusting.

And I'm so glad you got your prize! I was getting worried there for a bit. As you can tell, I got your note (on that adorable poke-a-dot card). YAYYAA You didn't have the British version! YAYAYAY!!

Well, thanks.
I love my watch and the book! (I kind of had to fight my son off for both)

*Fangirl radar perks up*

Aww, what a handsome couple! What was the banquet for?

I feel your pain, girl. I've gained some weight too, but not that recently. When I got around 40, my metabolism seemed to slow down, so I had to work out longer for less results - most annoying. That was also about the time I started getting addicted to fanfic. Then when I started writing it, I put a few more pounds on. I guess just because I spend all that time sitting. Sucks, huh? :(

Thanks! The independedent electrical contractor's (IEC) apprenticeship banquet. Hubby's the president this year, so he had to speak. It wan't too bad. It's not every day a girl gets taken dancing, after all.

Metabolism? What is this metabolism of which you speak?

I haven't had one in about 10 years. I eat practically next to nothing, and yet I still gain. I guess I'm going to have to get off my dead butt and go excersize again. Gah, I hate to sweat.

And, yes. It most certainly does suck.

I walk every weekday for about 40 minutes. I know it's not really enough to make me lose any weight (unless I keep my calorie intake low), but at least I'm getting off my duff. And with our weather in Phoenix, sweating is definitely involved. I would swim at the community pool, but I don't want to show off my uh, figure, or lack thereof. ^_^

Oh, I love to dance! Sometimes I do it at home in the living room just for exercise. I just don't want an 'audience' (unless I'm out at the bars or casino, then it's fine, because I don't know those people). For some reason, my kids like watching me. It's kinda creepy, really. My daughter thinks I have some pretty cool moves. I'll put in something upbeat by No Doubt, Madonna, the Bee Gees, U2 - anybody I enjoy and can dance to. Then I dance for at least half an hour. But finding the time can be a bit of a problem, though, since I prefer no one else be there... :-/

Well, that's us at our best. We were both a little worse for wear this morning. *g*

You are a fantastic pair. I love your hair by the way :D

I have to post an observation of mine though. Your husband almost looks lke George Clooney... Has anyone ever mentioned that before??
Carrie Leigh: daisycarrie_leigh on May 14th, 2007 03:06 am (UTC)
No, no one's ever said that before. He'll be pleased you think so, though.

There's a photo of a dashing blond and delicious red-head and no one else made a "grownup!DG ZOMG SQUEEEEEEZ" comment?

Obviously, the rest of your Flist is blind.

Also, you two are too hot for your own good.
Carrie Leigh: pretty ginnycarrie_leigh on May 13th, 2007 03:40 pm (UTC)
Hush, brat. We're not quite pretty enough to be the Malfoys!
Numbaby: badasserynumbaby on May 13th, 2007 03:44 pm (UTC)
Brat? Yes. Hush? Never!

And pretty? Sweet Salazar, yes. Pretty and pretty and PRETTY.

Must be a Texan thing.

I'm busting into this conversation with fangirl outrage. Or something. That's Draco's line! And we've firmly established that you're Ginny. And a very pretty one, at that.

Okay, I'm done being dorky now, off to eat dinner...
