To sum up...

I can't believe how fast/slow this week has been. It was dragging at first, but now as I look back it went fast. Do you realize that I'm getting married in just over a week??? That's weird. But, it still seems unreal to me, so I'm good.

So, Ron did not win the biggest loser...or the at home loser, if any of you thought he actually could. His son didn't win either. It was a surprise victory by Helen...well, sort of a surprise. I always thought she could win. I think the only person who was surprised was Tara. Guess you can win as many challenges as you want, but you didn't have what it took to win the whole thing. I just think it is unreal that Helen lost 54% of her body weight and now weighs 117. Yikes. She's a skinny old lady, that's for sure. Well, she's not too old. And the at home loser, Jerry. He lost a lot too like 45% or something. He looks like a turtle, I think.

As predicted Joelle lost hardly any weight and David lost even less. It was an entertaining season. But I think I might have to give up the show. We'll see. I'm sure I'll get sucked in during the fall. It does make me want to go for a run. Too bad I have to work for five more hours....

I took a page from Shannon's book, and counted Paris, ID as visiting Paris. Also, do apostles count as famous people? I think so. And I might not have actually prepared the animal I ate, but I've caught fish that I've eaten while of the few times in my life that I eat fish. And, I didn't really bounce a check, but when I changed banks I had some outstanding checks that I had to go to great lengths to make sure they didn't bounce. Yeah, that was fun...oh how foolish I was when I was younger. Oh and I got 36...not bad...I guess.


So since the most popular tiara was number two, how do you feel about this jewelry to go with it? I figured it was the best match to go with tiara.
