Updates Schmupdates

I feel the need to post something, since I've been so quiet lately. Here goes.

The new Nikon: Nope, I haven't used it yet, but I do finally have a memory card that appears to actually work. What a novelty. I have big plans to use the camera this coming weekend during my BIL's surgery recovery and MIL's visit.

Latisse: Not worth the price tag. While my eyelashes are noticeably longer after 2 months of usage, I think they are really only noticeably longer to me. I'm sure they would be fabulous after 4 months of usage, but I read somewhere that you only notice the lengthening effects as long as you use the stuff. Not worth it. As soon as I finish up my current bottle, I won't be continuing my usage. Maybe I'll stock up again when I'm a billionaire.

Pilates Reformer: Who knew I'd find some sort of physical activity that I actually like. Too bad it costs a fortune to keep it up regularly. Sadly, my frivolous and spontaneous online shopping has taken a hit.

NutraSystem (or, NS): Still blows. I'm discovering that this is not a good diet for me because I hate the food so much. I did much better on South Beach the first time I did it, a couple years ago. So essentially, I'm still a chubster.

Shopping: If any of you would like invitations to my fave "invite-only" online shopping sites, Gilt, Rue La La or Ideeli, let me know. Fun times.

That's all. I suck.

I hooked up google reader! I'm glad you're doing pilates, although I miss you at tkb. I was wondering when you'd update the blog!

I look forward to your pics!

I'm going to send you some links tonight of places you can buy cute camera straps. Maybe that will motivate you to use your camera. :)

I'm too scared to ask you for those invitations. My wallet knows I can't handle it. Next time I visit your blog I expect to see at least one picture from your camera! :)

Pilates definitely puts a damper on my discretionary spending as well. Yet I can't imagine giving it up. :)

NorCalMrs said...

Do you have a reformer at home, or do you go to a studio? Jealous!! I love your updates!

Serendipite said...

You don't suck - you just need to ditch the NS. Have you tried WW? Or do you just hate tracking?

Ashley said...

Have you tried Zone Delivery? It costs a fuckin' fortune but the food is good and fresh.
