Friday Saturday! I missed the post yesterday because I went to a party for a birthday girl and it was so fun seeing Little A all happy and shouting out “it’s my birthday! I’m the birthday girl!”
And ya’ll….. I had CAKE. One slice. Not super thick. Not super tiny. Just a normal-ish piece of cake and it was DIVINE. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm……
This week has been pretty good- I’ve got my walk in every day and I feel pretty good. I also wore tights/leggings for the first time EVER in public and people did not hide their children or shriek in terror ( before I started losing weight, before the diabetes diagnosis- I always felt my thighs were just a bit too chunky for tights. I also had similar thoughts on skinny jeans. I now wear them as well.) But more on this stuff another day- changing some of my thoughts, searching for the perfect jeans, etc!
Moving on to the bookish stuff…

2. Someone had a big party this week 🙂
3. “How the story is told: Audrey, Cat (a friend of hers) and Him (Audrey’s stalker). Each voice is needed in this story- and how the story is told just makes you want to read faster.”
