Who Am I?

Well, inquisitive reader, let me answer. I am a wife, a mom and I have chronic bad hair. I like made uppy words and Unnecessary Capitalization. If you know who the guy in the bottom right picture is, you're probably my best friend. Also, I own several Edward dolls which I write about HERE. No, I don't use drugs. By the way, if your love canned tomatoes, visit my stash HERE.

Happiness is...

...losing enough weight to be able to put on your wedding rings.


I wear three rings.  My engagement ring was my Hubs' grandmother's ring from like, 40 years ago.  My Hubs bought two supah sparkly bands to go on either side.  As the jeweler said, I am certainly making a statement. 

Except for the last year or two, when my fingers have been a wee bit too fat to make much of a statement other than "please don't mistake me for the breakfast sausage!". 

So it was with a sigh of relief that had nothing to do with gastric emissions that I slipped on all three of my wedding bands today.

This post is in conjunction with Leigh vs. Laundry and the Happiness Project.

My fingers are still to chubby to wear my wedding rings. I think maybe 5 more pounds and I'll be able to wear them again.

Your rings are beautiful...congrats on getting them back on your fingers!
