Family Friend Makin' Mondays Friends Funny Stuff Quotes Weight Watchers

Friend Makin’ Mondays

It’s that time again…the weekend is over, but I’m already looking forward to what’s happening later this month. My closest friend, growing up, is coming to visit the City That Never Sleeps for the first time. And I can’t wait to see her.

Anyway, this week’s topic for FMM is:


If you want to join the fun and connect with other awesome bloggers, just click here for the details. Now here’s my list:1) I am obsessed with politics and knowing what’s going on around the globe. Well, there’s A LOT going on, and once in a while, someone will ask me a question about something obscure. When I don’t know the answer I just do my best to sound like I’m making sense. Most of the time this works. πŸ˜‰ My dad always jokes “When you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with BS.”

1a) Sometimes the questions are no so obscure. πŸ˜‰

2) I have Invisaligns.

3) I’m addicted to Facebook, and now I can add Twitter to that list.

4) I wish I had more close friends. (Jeez, it sounds so sad, right?) But it’s true. I have very dear friends who live thousands of miles away, but I wish I had some closer too. I’m forming friendships here that I think will last a lifetime, but it takes a lot of time to really grow in friendship. I’m not doing badly considering the length of time I’ve lived here so don’t feel sorry for me. I just can’t wait until I’ve lived here long enough to say I’ve hung out with Nick, Charlene and Christine and others for the last 10 years. πŸ˜‰

5) I suck at following through on things like dinner. I’ll do great for a few days, in that I’ll cook something awesome. Then my zest for homemade cooking goes away, and I order take-out like I did tonight.

6) My biggest reasons for losing weight are these:

a. I don’t want to be my niece’s big aunt. I want to be her cool NY aunt.
b. I’d love to walk into a room without the assumption that I’ll be the largest person there.

7) Okay, now something lighter. πŸ˜‰ I get way too excited about little things like my birthday or having friends over or a new handbag (which is on the horizon, friends…just saying.)

8) I secretly, or not so secretly LOVE counting my WW points everyday. It’s a challenge that I take seriously, but I have fun doing it. I think I’m awesome when I’m in control of everything I’m eating.

9) I sleep in (probably) later than anyone who reads my blog. πŸ˜‰

10) I buy presents for others that I would love to get myself. hehe

Okay, that’s my list. I was painfully honest, and now I hope you’ll confess too.

    Well, if you consider I'm on the west coast, I'm still sleeping probably when you get up.

    Love your list. Love that you were honest. I liked being under my points when I was doing WW. Which reminds me, I need to do that again. I'm not seeing as great of results as I'd like on my own.

    I'm also addicted to Facebook.

    I'm addicted to Facebook, Blogging and the Sims 3! πŸ™‚

    I share your reasons for wanting to lose weight, along with the fact that I don't want to die of a heart attack.

    I don't think I've been over to your blog before, so it's nice to meet you!

    I love your dads quote… I've just adopted it as my mantra πŸ™‚
    I love sleeping in. I don't get to do it that often, but when I do, I'll sleep until 1pm or later.

    I love handbags, too!

    I also wish I had more close friends, which is why I'm coordinating a Bunco night with some really random people i've met over the years!! I'm nervous, but I'm sure it'll go well.

    We sound a lot alike!!

    I should have just copied and pasted your list onto my blog. I'm with you on so many of these…the friends, sleeping in, reasons to lose weight (I don't wanna be the fat mom), my birthday, buying things for others…WOW.
