more HBB...

Happy TGIF!!
It was a short week for me (had Monday off), but so glad that the weekend is here!!!

I have been in charge of Operation Christmas Child at our church for the past 3 years...and today I am excited to report that I am dropping off 83 shoe boxes at our local OCC drop-off location (pic's to come next week). It is such an awesome ministry, and I love being a part of it!!! I guess since my Love Language is gifts, it kinda fits *smile*

I know I've said it already, but I am LOVING my new stamp set (Holiday Button Bits), I have been seeing a lot of these colors used for Christmas and I have to say~it is really a pretty combo.

And for some total randomness...I LOVE Paradise Bakery Chocolate Chip cookies (they are delish!!!). Yesterday we had some brought to our office (by the drug reps~I work for Doctors)...I have started doing Weight Watchers again, not to loose a lot of weight, but to help me get back on track, since I fell off the wagon while planning Ashley's wedding last year. I love WW...such a great program to keep you motivated and accountable. Anyway, back to the cookie...Ashley and I decided to calculate the points value of one of those delish rounds of yumminess and can you believe it.....7 points *gasp* considering my point limit for the day is 20....that is a third of my points. Luckily we decided to split it and eat it slowly, LOL!!! I enjoyed every single bite of the 3.5 pt's. How's that for Random, LOL!!!

Enjoy your weekend!!!
