A very belated Happy Hour Friday


Oh my gosh. I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date. I have no excuse for (almost) missing Happy Hour Friday. I'd tell you, but I don't think you care anyway so let's just get to the good stuff.

  • I'm happy I have friends like Otie that don't get mad even tho I fail to show up to our  own blogger party.
  • I am super happy that although my stinkin' scale is still stuck on the same number, two (yes, 2) people told me today that I looked like I was losing weight. I'm not, but the complements were awesome.
  • I'm happy that I've made it thru the first 2 challenges at the gym where Barb and I work-out. This month the challenge is the 12 Days of Christmas, so on day 1 we had to do 1 challenge, then day 2 we do the first one plus another, and so on so it builds everyday. Every month they have a new challenge. October was doing the plank for 5 minutes... I didn't even try it. I can do it for about a minute. November's challenge was biking 1.5mi, rowing 1000m, and running 1mi in under 20 min. I only tried it once and got 21:12. Grrrr. 72 seconds between glory and shame. I would have tried it again, but I didn't get around to doing it at all until Thanksgiving, so I didn't have time to try again. Hopefully I'll be able to do all 12 challenges this month and get the glory of seeing my name on "The Board!"
  • I'm happy I'm writing my Happy Hour with my hubby by my side, a fire in the fireplace, Christmas Vacation on the tube, and a bottle of Estancia Cab.
  • I'm happy that hubby is happy that I've worked 3 days this week. I'm comfortable with 3 days, that means I'm bringing in some money but still have time to do stuff like laundry, errands like the bank, some light housecleaning, etc.
  • Well I think that's about it. It's not, but Christmas Vacation is one of my all time favorite Christmas movies (next to Scrooged and It's a Wonderful Life) and I want to watch... and catch up on all of your blogs!
  • Hope you all had a wonderful Happy Hour Friday! Go see Otin, click his Linky, and check out the other players too!!!!!

I'm happy to have friends like you and Otin. Sounds like you're happy! That's all that matters!

I love Christmas Vacation too.

You sound so happy and together, good on you!

I totally missed Happy Hour yesterday. So I'm having my own little happy hour this morning by catching up with all my favorite bloggers while enjoying my morning coffee! Cheers!

tori said...

sounds like a great week! My scale keeps reading the same too forever! (not going up over thanksgiving either-which I'm glad) I think it might be broken.

smiles:: I've actually gotten to the point where I *usually* enjoy going to workout and actually *miss* the high from it if I skip a few days. Hope you have a great weekend!

Otie:: Im glad I've redeemed myself. It'd suck if you were mad at me :)

GEM:: Right back at ya!

Gaston:: Isn't it a great movie. I can watch it over and over. And thanks, it's nice to feel *together* because so often I'm not!

Cat:: I think having your own happy hour catching up on blogs is a fab idea. Thanks for including me in the "faves" category ;)

Bri:: I love it when it snows outside and I'm warm and snuggly inside. Cheers!

Tori:: Stinking scales, but you're right, I'd rather it be stuck than go up!!

i love when people tell me it looks like i'm losing weight, even when i'm not.

hubby and his family watch christmas vacation together every year. big difference from "holiday inn" which i watched with my mom every year!

Ice Queen said...

That sounds fabulous. What's better than good Christmas movies and wine? Good Christmas movies, wine, and sex I guess! haha

Lisa E said...

Congrats to you on your determination. I want to get back on track and it is SO tough. Good for you!!!!

All sounds happy, happy, happy...So happy that you nearly missed happy hour? That's very bloody happy :0)

Kamana said...

happy hour friday... first time i've come across it - neat idea. how great is it that people think you have lost weight? love it when that happens (though very rarely).

Little Ms Blogger said...

I'm with Ice Queen....sounds like a perfect evening.

I'm also very curious about the 12 day of Christmas challenge. You have to tell us more about it.

Erin said...

The movie & wine w/ hubs sounds like a great evening to me!

And good for you for working out. I am frustrated, too. My scale rarely changes much. I try to tell myself that's mostly b/c I'm gaining muscle when I work out, but...still hate it.

Thanks so much for following me and stopping by---I'm here to return the favor!

Sounds like you were doing Happy Hour right! ;)

Smart Mouth Broad said...

I'm happy that I'm not the only one who can't keep up. Great happy thoughts.

Michel said...

plank for five minutes!?! I think that is in violation of the geneva convention!

Goose said...

Those workout challenges would really motivate me. I don't think the Y offers anything like that. Where do you work out?

Shandal said...

Christmas Vacation is my favorite Christmas movie!!!
