What? No SpongeBob for President?!?!?!

What gives? I can't believe that he didn't make it!

But guess who I did vote for. Dick Clark. Yup. I kid you not. Some guy running for treasurer in Utah. I laughed out loud when I saw his name and figured we couldn't go wrong there. Now before you go getting after me for voting for someone that I really didn't know anything about, he was the only one. Most of the spots I just left blank because I don't know any of them from Adam.

I do have to say that I was impressed with Obama's acceptance speech last night. Even though I really wasn't happy with either choice for president I have faith that our Heavenly Father will guide our leaders in a positive way.

Anyhoo....enough of that. Wanna hear my screaming deal for the night last night! So about a month ago Albertson's was having their buy one get one pound free of the 93% lean ground beef. Well they were short on their shipment so I had to get a rain check. I went shopping last night and much to my delight all of the 93% lean beef had a $2.00 off coupon on them so get this...I got 8 pounds of extra lean ground beef for $10.76! I was giddy!

So in the fashion of my good friend Michelle, I am having Weigh In Wednesday's from now on. I'll try to get to the gym every Wed. morning so I can have a more detailed weight reading. This moring...fully clothed I was 173.0, so I figure I'm about 1 pound more than my scale reads me at home, figuring that my clothing and shoes is probably 2 pounds...but never mind that. I'll just try to remember to wear the same stuff every Wed.

So there you have it! No SpongeBob for Pres....a screaming deal....and I'm exhausted from my workout this morning!

Oh and hey...I actually got scrappy yesterday! I even did 4 more cards, but I haven't photographed them yet.

Such a cute card Kristy!

Well, if it makes you feel any better, I voted for Spongebob. Cause really, he was the best choice.

Well very cool on the deal. SpongeBob hmmm....well I figure if America suddenly collapses at least I'm living a good life at the moment! I was impressed with "Obama's" speach but noticed he looked at the teleprompters way too much. Hmmm...

Oh and your card is cute. I need to organize my scrap area and do something today.

Well at least we will have a president that knows what a teleprompter is and how to use it.

Hey, I'm so excited you're officially joining me on the Weigh in Wednesday. It's really been helping me to drop some pounds, mostly for the idea of having to publish if I've gained or lost. Feel free to use my little "Weigh In Wednesday" picture to add to your blog!

Cute, cute card Kristy. I stayed up to watch your elections on the box but fell asleep somewhere around the 2am mark then woke up at 2.50am just long enough to turn the box off. Missed all the action :-(. When your new president takes a day off, we'll lend you Patrick because the way he runs this country, he may as well not be here at all!!!

Love Tracey's comment. The pollies are the same the world over, LOL. That's kind of comforting in a weird, unnerving way ;-)
