Linky Love, a New Winner, and the Weekly Weigh-In~

Lots to cover today folks!!



First up, more wonderful inspiration from Frugal Friday!! Seriously, how many frugal talented folks are there out in blogland??


Some of my favorites from this week...



Two fabulous makeovers....at For the Love of It...you know I just love white paint...it can transform anything...


even a circa 70's sidetable can become a beauty!!





and beadboard makes this built-in beautiful.





Rocky Bella made this darling memo board from an old picture frame....




And here's a seriously clever Space-themed boy's room at My Insanity...wow.


There's plenty more where these goodies came from...if you haven't had a chance to see all the frugal goodness check it out here.


Second, some of you may remember the Faded Prairie giveaway from a few weeks back...and these fabulous jars? Well, despite my repeated tries to contact the winner of that giveaway, she never got back to me...so I've drawn a new winner...and that is Lene from A Pinch of Chaos!! Lene, drop me an email and I'll get you all set up with your great prize!!


And finally, what you've all been waiting for (ha ha), my weekly weigh-in. This week I lost.... 1 1/2 lbs. for a two-week grand total of... 5 1/2 lbs. Only 14 1/2 to go. (And thanks for humoring me on this...it actually helps when I get the munchies to think to myself that I am going to be "weighing in" on my blog...and you all will know if I eat that bag of chips...ha ha !!)


Have a great day~

Congrats on the weight loss so far! I am on Day 5 of my own diet extravoganza so I can commiserate. I just keep telling myself that nothing tastes as good as thin will feel!

congrats on the weigh-in! i think that is the perfect amount to lose at a time; you know if you lose too much, too fast, you end up gaining it back! yay you!

I love that built in! Gorgeous. And good for you on the weight loss. I'm down 2.5 this week and I've got 12-15 more to go. Almost all of that is weight I gained back after losing 35. Maybe I should weigh in on my blog as well. Why oh why can't I be one of those people who can eat anything? I might as well stuff what I'm going to eat up my shirt, cause that's what it looks like, anyway! Oh well...it's a good incentive to run and be healthy.

Jealous of your weight loss..very. Totally believe in the power of white paint, and that built in is so beautiful!

Anna said...

Great job! I have started a new competition with myself...I'm super focused because my wonderful hubby has agreed to buy something for me off my 'wishlist' here I come new pair of boots or earrings:)

Love these frugal peeps!

The ball jars are my fav! I wrapped a little copper wire around the grooved lids to give them a little color and added a ribbon!
