Happy Friday, y'all! You might remember I used to do a series on my Youtube called Coffee and Chit Chat. I stopped because no one really watched it, but I wanted to bring it back here. Just imagine us having coffee (water, tea, whatever--I won't tell) and getting caught up. Here's what I've been up to lately:
DentistI have a pretty strong threshold for pain, but not for anything dental. Everything is sensitive. Always has been. My sister is the same way. They could only do half of my mouth because it hurt so badly. They gave me 10 shots and I could still feel it. But on the good side, the dentist said I had amazingly white teeth! Yes! Y'all know how I am about having white teeth.

Surprise!After weeks of planning, my family managed to pull of a surprise for my Mama's 60th birthday. I left the dentist and drove from Atlanta to my hometown. We had a secret family photo shoot. Then we went to dinner and my step-dad brought her to the restaurant for the surprise. We presented her with one of the pics of us. She was so happy. We are more of a candid pics kind of family (aka my family is usually in their comfy clothes mode at home) so this was a big deal. And we usually aren't ever together all at once, not even on holidays, especially since I live 5 hours away.
I feel like February was kind of a "meh" month. Maybe I'll write about that another time, but there's always something good, right? My "something good" is my weight loss. I'm down 20 pounds--not so sure about that after yummy pasta last night--and I'm really happy. I'm not down to where I want to be, but I can definitely see the progress. I'm especially proud of how I've really slowed down my coffee and soda intake. I used to drink 4 cups of coffee (aka mostly creamer and a little coffee) a day. Now I'm down to one cup on the weekends, unless I have a really late work day. I'm upping my water intake, but it's hard at work (long boring story), but it's better than it was!! You can read about what I'm doing here. And my latest update here.
Have a great weekend!
What's new with you?
