tall texans

So many years of slouching and hiding my weight with bad posture
left me at 5 feet tall. I was once 5'2"
Now after P90X and the chin up bar, I am back to normal!
(I can stretch higher, but can't stay that way.)

With all this driving - I keep my oil changed like a religion.
This"complaint form" is at my mechanic's!

Ha ha!

Fourth of July stuff,
Way out in the "country."
Some pretty sparklers, please!
Thank you very much.
Lance Armstrong Beer!
"Drink Strong" -  I guess?
(I'll pass, thank you!)

The new office gossip couple - (not!)
A person was checking me out the other day in the elevator!
I never felt so freaking uncomfortable in my fatty ass-id (acid) life.
OMG! That hasn't happened in a while.
The checking out part, I mean.
I almost crawled out of my blonde package skin.

The other kind of meat market!

Deli slices for lunch - cold cuts...

All kinds of summer treats here in your grocer's grocery store!

"It's not the heat - it's the humanity!"
from Brigadoon!

Do you eat hot meals in the summer?
More or less than in the winter?
In Nursing school, they taught us to eat one hot meal a day.
If possible. There's something about it - more nurturing?

A weather forecast for last night and this weekend. 
Looks like a recipe for a good time!

Here's to a great weekend!

Monster w protein and orange extract flavouring x2
Black Forest Ham w pepper jack and mild cheddar cheese 
sliced and rolled up with cream cheese filling!
Tea unsweetened, coffee w/cream, water, fizzy water
2 HB eggs w/out the shells
No nuts today - I'm done in - nut wise!
So to speak!
Still loving to listen to Wicked all day!
Could Wicked be the best musical ever?
I hope you are having a great week-end!
And a safe a happy 4th of July!


  1. Wouldn't this be a great day - and a great time -
    just to talk to a friend - someone - anyone?
    Why not me?
    Why not - well, right now?
    Sounds great to me!

  2. LOL - Lance Armstrong Beer! Too bad I don't drink Anheuser-Busch products.

    You got checked out - now I would ring that up as an NSV.

    Have a great weekend!!

  3. Hey there Anne, of course you got checked out, your all that and a bag of chips...no fat...lol. have a great weekend. Lance Armstrong Beer...hmmmm.

  4. Only in America!!! Or should I say, only in Texas would you find such 4th of July treats!!!! My best friend from here is spending July 4th in Texas with our mutual friends in Fort Worth. I'm so jealous! I'd love to see the action.

    You know you're looking good when you're being checked out! :)

  5. Of course they check you out, you hot thing you!!
    Yep, i'm one of those weird people that eats hot foods summer and winter, although i eat less of them in the summer :)

  6. I'm the one little old ladies ask for help getting stuff down from high shelves in supermarkets. If I had a pound for every time someone said to me "you're so lucky being tall" I'd be very wealthy! :o)

    Have a terrific weekend!

  7. Yay!
    I'm just glad I got my 2 inches back -
    *so to speak!*
    Plus standing up straighter and taller
    makes a person look thinner!
    If only until they exhale!

  8. I love your photo stories. They make me smile and feel that I get a peek into your life.

  9. No more nuts for now, huh. Only the ones who leave comments. Ha.

  10. Another interesting post from Anne. I stopped by to say hi! Happy 4th of July and try to stay cool.smile.

  11. Doesn't it feel great to get checked out?! It's almost like someone is checking a piece of meat to see if they want it. Which goes well with all of your meat pics. :) Hey, that person just thinks you look good. It's nice.

    LOVE the weather forecast.
    Have a great fourth of July. I think this will be the first year we don't buy fireworks.

  12. Yay for standing taller! All this fitness work is paying off. AND getting checked out? It's been so long for me I wouldn't quite know how to handle it either.

    Why does everyone think you need to drink beer after riding a big ride? I know it's the carbs they're replacing, but isn't alcohol the opposite of being fit? That's just my 2 cents.

    Have a Happy 4th, Anne!

  13. Exactly why I quit drinking!
    Not worth the calories!
    And blogging under the influence is just
    cruising for that bruising, again!

  14. did you wink at this person checking you out?! or flip your hair?! (the little you have)

    what did you do so i can live vicariously through you?!


    (i need to think of something else since i have no hair to flip!)

  15. Yes. Wicked could be the best musical ever. I'm wearing my wicked witched hat at this very moment.


I would love to hear from you!
