I had a really great weekend! The house cleaning went well. What I didn't finish cleaning... Mr. Laurann pitched in on Saturday morning and helped me with. We work great as a team!!! He's amazing, being the kind of man who is very thoughtful. I've met some men who NEVER do housework but that's not my guy. He does the laundry every week and he does the dishes sometimes to give me a break. He cooks once in a while too. He cooked twice this weekend. We had steaks on Friday and again tonight. He does sinful things with a cast iron skillet and a nice steak... so good you know it's got to be a guilty pleasure. LOL! I know it's not good for my diet but when he cooks... FORGET the diet. LOL. I'm no slouch myself in the kitchen but I'm more of a baker. I love to oven cook chicken and make BBQ pork ribs. We don't outdoor grill so yeah. Everything is stove top or oven or that lovely Showtime Rotisserie I own. I LOVE that. It makes the best tri tip...ever!
My daughter got everything she wanted for her birthday so that's great! She even got to go clothes shopping with one of her grandmothers on her birthday so FUN for her!!! (I hate to shop so was so grateful Grandma took her! LOL). She decided on a Hannah Montana birthday cake and that was soooo good! It was white cake with butter cream frosting and fresh strawberries inside. YUM! We ordered Mexican food from her favorite place. I made peanut butter bon bons dipped with dark chocolate. They were GOOD! And yes... I'm exercising to equal out all that food. LOL. At 3 in the morning last night I was dancing in my living room to work off some calories before I jumped in to the shower and went to bed. I'm thinking about getting a treadmill but... not sure where to put it. I dance and do mild yoga right now. I can't jog. Asthma. Me and running... don't match. I do well on treadmills though indoors. I can make sure I keep track of how far and fast I go to help regulate myself which I can't do outside, usually tend to overdo it... and then end up doubled over gasping for breath. LOL. NOT good! I have 25 more pounds to lose. I did really good last year, lost 30 pounds that I have KEPT OFF! My goal is June for my 40th birthday!!!
I made a trailer for Kissing Steel this weekend. I really have fun making these. The hardest part is the music. I signed up for a site to make trailers on and they have some great music choices so... Yeah. LOL. I love the music on this trailer. I've been lucky so far finding good music. KNOCK ON WOOD! LOL. I was also writing this weekend but not as much as usual. I took a few great naps this weekend. I love naps. I admit that freely. LOL. I did some reading! I am an avid reader. I can't say this enough but I beleive you have to love books to write. I'm putting the trailer on here.
Burning Up Flint came out on Friday and it's been a great release weekend. Thank you to everyone who bought/buys the book. I truly appreciate some of you taking the time to write to me to share what you thought of it! That's really, truly touching. Have a great week and I hope you enjoy the trailer!
