I read about a little monthly round up at this blog: Scrapbook Lady. I thought I would give it a try. I thought it was a fabulous idea.
So here is my wrap up of July:
What movies and/or tv shows did I watch this month?
Well, for those of you who don't know....I am a reality show junkie! I love them all. I watch: Nashville Star...(I liked the young blonde that just recently went home. So now I am hoping for Melissa Lawson..(I think that is her name) to win. I watch Life of an American teenager. I really like this one. Although with 2 young girls it really scares me. It is funny to see John Snyder from the Dukes of Hazard married to Jane (from Melrose Place....okay I am really dating myself now!) I watch the mole....although I don't know why, I am not really caring for this one. I watch....So YOu Think YOu Can Dance....and I was sooooo sad to see William go home. He was just awesome. I really liked Carrington too. I am hoping Twitch wins, although I really like almost all of them. I watch Army Wives...I am really loving this show. Finally, I watch Big Brother...this is my biggest guilty pleasure...I even have the showtime afterdark....should I really admit that? LOL. I DVR all of them and I am wayyyyy behind because I can't possibly watch them when they are on...too much to watch...tooo little time!!!
What special days did I celebrate and how?
For the fourth we went to Toledo with my family to visit Don's family. We also stayed at a Doubletree in Dearborn for 2 nights. We went swimming with the girls. I also went to MGM casino with my parents.
What illnesses or health concerns did I have?
My grandmother is going through a lot right now. She is having some breathing issues and pains.
What fun things did I do with my friends and/or family?
I went to see my friend's new baby Emma. I also got together with Patience and her children.
What new foods, recipes or restaurants did I try this month?
I tried a grasshopper cake. I will be making it again. I also tried a picante chicken that was really good.
What special or unusual purchases did I make?
we bought a dishwasher and a kitchen table.
What were this month's disappointments?
I get pretty discouraged trying to get this weight off.
What were my accomplishments this month? I started back to the gym. I am going 3 days a month. I didn't lose anything, but I am not going to get discouraged!
Anything else noteworthy to record?
