Trying to figure out if it is indeed possible to gain 10 pounds in three days. I don't own a scale. I threw it out about two years ago. Yep, into the trash it went. We had a very long-term volatile relationship. He could ruin my entire day by just saying a number to me. Problem was, it was usually the WRONG number. Typical bad boy, always lying. Since I gave him the old heave ho, I literally have no idea what I weigh. I don't even look at the scale when I have medical appointments. I can stare that nurse down pretty good. I either refuse to get my weight taken, OR I tell them to just write the number down and don't utter a word to me. Seriously, not ONE FREAKIN' WORD!!! And WHY is it important to know my weight when I'm visiting the doc for a hang-nail anyway. Honestly, I don't need no stinkin' scale to tell me what I already know. My thighs and butt never lie. Which brings me back to my question...IS it possible to gain 10 pounds in three days? Especially if those three days fall over Thanksgiving? 'Cause my thighs are screaming at me to back away from the stuffing and gravy. Stat. UGH...I love Thanksgiving. UGH...I really think I gained 10 pounds in three days. Ugh...I don't need a scale OR Google to tell me if it is even possible. But regardless I DO love Thanksgiving....and stuffing with gravy. Oh yeah, and cranberry sauce WITH ridges from the can. It's gotta have the ridges.
Which brings us to this week's Scavenger Hunt Sunday. The Thanksgiving edition. The prompts this week are: Home or Thankful (I am thankful that my thighs still fit into my sweat pants), In the Kitchen (hence my thighs), Couple (yep, I gotta couple of big ol' thighs), Bubbles (my thighs are as round as huge bubbles), and Trees (I think my thighs are masquerading as tree trunks).
1. Home or Thankful
I am thankful that I had all my Things home for Thanksgiving this year and that we were able to host my sisters and their families, as well as the madre at our home. I really do enjoy pretending I'm Martha Stewart twice a year. I am blessed.
2. In the Kitchen
2. In the Kitchen
Okay, I MIGHT have gone a bit overboard at the State Store for Thanksgiving. There MIGHT be a few "impulse purchases" on my kitchen table. Between the 30 pound turkey and the cases of wine, I got in a very good upper body workout.
My two favorite Wino-s...Thing #2 and my niece. They must have an amazing mom/aunt who instilled such an appreciation in them.
"Beauty Under Foot"
Okay, no way I could figure out how to work wine into this prompt. Perhaps an Oaked Chardonnay? Better yet, Thanksgiving morning was just downright beautiful. The morning dew on the grass sparkled like the bubbles on a fine glass of champagne (haha, cheesy but mission accomplished). The only leaves left on our trees are now waiting to be raked up.
I hope you all had the most wonderful of Thanksgivings with friends and loved ones. As for me? I guess there is just more of me to love for the time being. Gosh I DO love Thanksgiving. The thighs? Not so much.
