Ok, so I totally failed in my personal challenge thingy-majiger. I like food too much.

I had a pretty good weekend with my parents. They didn't annoy me as much as they usually do, but it was too beautiful outside for them to be arses. We did some gardening and my aunt and uncle came over for hot wings, pizza and Celine Dion. She really knows how to bring a family together. My dad is set on getting a pool in the backyard, so that is in the works right now.

We are planning a bbq for my b-day/4th of July/mom's b-day and I only have about 3 or 4 people that I want to come. I don't really want anything special for my birthday except for a tiara. lol!

I'm watching the MTV movie awards right now and it is ridiculous. I had no idea that they could day "dick" on tv and the whole business with Sasha Baron Cohen and his ass in Eminem's face was just awkward. More awkward than Kristen Stewart dropping her award or the whole Ben Stiller thing.

It was a good weekend, but I didn't do laundry, boo me.

Hi Everyone

My weekend was pretty interesting. I went to my aunt Renee's birthday party on Saturday and I was about to go there without a gift for her. I realized that would have been a terrible faux-pas so I went to Kohls and got her a gold earring and necklace set that was really pretty. I saw a lot of stuff that I liked for her, but I thought that gold would look better on her because of her dark skin. Well anyway, price was an issue because I just gave my parents rent money so I'm kinda skint where money is concerned. When I picked out the earring and necklace set, I thought, "hmm, $18 is not so bad. Then I get up to the register ready to shell out 18 bucks and the dude said "That'll be $2.97"

Really? 2 dollars and 97 cents?

The guy says,"yeah, it's a clearance item."

I almost shouted to the heavens. "I love Kohls!!"

Now, I'm driving on PA33N to get to East Stroudsburg where my aunt and uncle live and I wouldn't say that I got lost, because I was in total control of where I was going. Though I will admit that I wasn't paying attention to the sign that said "keep left to stay on PA33N". I ended up on 209N and I was watching 33N get farther and farther left from me. I yelled a very loud "Sugar Honey Ice Tea". Then I calmed myself down and said, "alright, use your brain, just find somewhere to make a U turn and fix it." Don't you love it when your brain can just tell itself to hush up and calm down? Somewhere down 209, there was a stop light which means... INTERSECTION!!!

So I turned left, found somewhere to make a U turn and went back the other way. Now I'm on 209 south and i had to get back onto 33S and find a way to go back north. I DID NOT WANT TO TAKE AN EXIT because I didn't want to get lost. I was praying, Lord give me a legal U turn place. The Lord said, "No, just take an exit." So I did, and guess what, the exit to me to a perpendicular sort of intersection where I could only go left or right, not straight. If I went right I would go into whatever town it was. (I forget the name) If I went left I could get back to (wait for it) 33North!!!!! We have a winner!

Went left and back en route to my aunt's place. I got there and they live in a gated community so I had to get out and register and follow my uncle to the house because it was just very curvy and wind-y, so I was lucky to have him find me and show me how to get to the place to register.

The party was nice and I got to see my cousin's and their cousins on the other side of the family. It was a rainy night but I really didn't want to sleep over so my cousins Reginald and Julio came back with me to sleep at my house. Their dad came the next day to pick them up and I had the rest of Sunday to myself.

Today was back to work and lameness, but my coworker and I decided to go to CiCi's pizza buffet for dinner with her daughter and her mother. It was a crazy experience. I had no idea that there were so many peppy people. I guess they all work at Cici's. As soon as I walked in there, the girl at the register shouted in my face "HI WELCOME TO CICI'S" and then all of the employees shouted, "HI WELCOME TO CICI'S"

I was scared for my life.

The pizza was good, the dessert was good, my pink lemonade was good the salad was good and when I walked out, they all shouted again, "THANK YOU FOR COMING!". When thinking about it, it is a good idea to be greeted enthusiastically, but when dining, do you really want to hear all of that shouting? It's not like there are a few people near the entrance/exit that greet the patrons, EVERYONE who works there greets the patrons. So I could be sitting having a conversation with someone and one of the workers would be cleaning the table next to us and then randomly burst out with a greeting. It's annoying. I am SO going there again!!!

alrighty! good nighty!

Tweet Tweet

So I fell off of the wagon over the weekend and had some Haitian food with the family because Sunday was Mothers Day. Although I had a bit of an off weekend, I am still determined to do this. I probably won't make my 20lb goal for my birthday, but I'm praying.

I'm on Twitter, as you might have noticed, and I'm a little obsessed. I'm following about 70 people and I'm being followed by 35 people (so far). I mostly twitter about what I'm watching or if I'm about to run an errand. I like thinking that someone out there cares. Someone out there is thinking, "what is Regine doing right at this moment?" Well now they have an answer. Yeah, Right! A girl can dream though, can't she? Well, if you stumble upon this blog and decide to read this, then my twitter name is LaBelleRiviere. Please follow me. If you want.

Start of a new "project"

So, as I mentioned before, I'm starting this new fitness thing for the Summer. although, technically May and most of June aren't part of the Summer, I figured why wait. And considering the weather lately, it might as well be Summer. Well I was going to start on Friday but, why go to the gym on the last weekday of the week even though it was the 1st of May? But then I felt bad about not starting when I should have so I did a little bit of stuff today.

Yesterday, I went to Wal-Mart with my reusable bags from Giant (turned inside-out so the scary Wal-Mart zombies won't hurt me) and bought my usual stuff, but instead of buying a bag of chips, I bought those ranch flavored rice cakes and I bought (don't hate me) diet pills. *shhhhh* They've worked for me before so I decided to give it another go, plus they are specially designed for women. (you know the ones I'm talking about)

Anyway, I am really looking forward to my little Summer "project" with this whole get fit business. I really hope I reach my goal. But I'm still taking it step-by-step. Hopefully, by my birthday I'll lose at least 20lbs. Wish me luck.
Oh, and don't think that this is some misguided attempt to fit society's norm of what is beautiful. I just want to be healthy, especially since I don't have health insurance, I have to do whatever I can to prevent any fat-related sickness. You know, high blood pressure/ cholesterol, diabetes, chub rub.

Well, I was going to wash my hair but there was no hot water. MAJOR FAIL! Now my fro is pulled back in a ponytail and it is gross. Don't judge.
