Edited for Content

I wore my shoes all day yesterday. They didn't bother me at work too much. They felt a little weird on my pinkie toe, but other than that, they were fine. I wore to Jazzercise yesterday and that was a BAD idea. I do not recommend wearing them on concrete surfaces with thin carpeting on top. My feet were also sweating so bad. Needless to say, I packed my tennis shoes this morning. I will try running/walking in the shoes and I plan on wearing them to Pilates when I start that in February. I'll keep you posted on how they work.

And I have to show you these pictures of Miss Piggy that my mom saw in Miami (they have been edited):
She's changed her name to Mizz Piggy and is now pretending that she's Janet Jackson in Miami. So sad.

It's Tuesday; so, that means it's time for Ten on Tuesday hosted by Chelsea at Roots and Rings.
1. What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I am proud of myself for my weight loss. I had accepted that I would be a size 12 and got on with my life. My weight never kept me from doing anything, but I wasn't taking care of myself. I am proud of myself for losing 35lbs. It still is a journey and I'd still like to lose a little more. But this was something that only I could do and I did it.

2. How much did you weigh when you were born?
I weighed 5lbs. 15 oz. and I was 21" long. Yes, I was a supermodel.

3. What is your favorite perfume?
I love Stella by Stella McCartney. But I got her new fragrance, Nude, for Christmas and I love it.

4. How many siblings do you have?
Zero - unless you could Willie, my parents long-haired, miniature dachshund

5. How many children would you like to have? (Or how many do you have?)
I think one, two or three. We'll see.

6. What’s the best class you took in college?
Communication as Performance. We had a great class and our teacher was great. We mainly did improv the entire class.

7. What was your favorite game to play when you were a child?
I loved playing Life. It was the best game ever.

8. What character on Friends are you most like?
Monica - I am a little neurotic. I had a book for my wedding like she had. But, I don't like to clean, that's why I have a maid.

9. Are you a phone person? (ie: Do you like talking on the phone?)
No. I only talk to my mom, dad, grandfather, and mother-in-law on the phone. If you want to know something, text, Facebook, email me.

10. What was the best vacation you ever took?
I had a GREAT time in Cancun, but the best trip I ever took was my Contiki trip around Europe after college graduation. My best friend, Laura, and I went. I met so many great people and I learned so much about myself. It was great to see so many sights and get to experience different cultures. We went from London to Athens, Greece in 28 days. It was amazing. My only regret was that I didn't take my parents offer to continue on another trip for another month. I was just so ready to come home.

I am an only child too and I was the same weight and height at birth. Strange!

Mizz Piggy made me laugh - I never knew she was so... comfortable with nudity? giggle.

Ugh, I hate talking on the phone. It honestly wears me out!

Cee said...

Mizz Piggy is so weird! Although I am not surprised...she was always a little wild!
