You Are 40% Lady
You tend to make up your rules of etiquette, throwing all conventions aside.
And while you try to be a lady (sometimes), your behavior is often quite shocking.Are You A Lady?

How ironic!!!!
You Are a Ham Sandwich
You are quiet, understated, and a great comfort to all of your friends.
Over time, you have proven yourself as loyal and steadfast.
And you are by no means boring. You do well in any situation - from fancy to laid back.

Your best friend: The Turkey Sandwich

Your mortal enemy: The Grilled Cheese SandwichWhat Kind of Sandwich Are You?

OH MY GOODNESS...they got it spot on!! I used to LOVE HIM :)

How often do you....

i was watching Oprah a while back and she mentioned that she changes her bed sheets every other day...i thought that sounded a little excessive (she probably has someone do it for her) but it got me wondering about the following
How often do you

10) sweep the floor?

Here are my answers
1) once a week (or sometimes 2 weeks)

3) n/a (we have no carpets)
4) once a week (about 5-6 loads in one day)
5) once a week or two
6) try to remember once a day

day 3

It's day 3 of my new WW plan and I am doing pretty well so far. I have kept within my points allotment all 3 days but have not been that great at getting in 6 glasses of water, 2 cups of milk , 5 fruits or vegitables and a multivitamin...i do feel my stomach less bloated and gross but i know there hasn't been any weight loss quite yet (which is okay but it would be a nice bonus)
i have actually been able to get in a little exercise too (so if you see a lot less of me on facebook-it's because i've decided to take out my runners and be more active while baby is napping rather than browse that ridiculous sight!!!)

Weight Watchers

Almost 2 years ago i decided to join Weight Watchers. I had gained a lot of weight in a very short time and was really down on myself. WW did the trick. I dropped the 20+ pounds I had gained and felt better about myself. Today I decided I'd had enough of all the extra (baby?) weight and decided to go back on the program. Now I won't be attending meetings as they are rather pricey, and I already have all the material from last time. I will just try to stay committed to eating healthy, watch my portion sizes and try to exercise more often...
Since today is day one, i am doing great!! We;ll see how it goes over the next while- i have given myself a time line and small goals along the way- wish me luck!!!

5 question meme

1. Are you religious and/or spiritual?How does that affect your daily life?I am not religious but I am a traditionalist. I enjoy the customs and traditions of the Jewish religion and try to follow the basic concept of Judaism-which is often lost when one tries to "do it all". I believe in a higher being and that one gets what one deserves in life so it is important to be the best person you can be (although sometimes that is a little hard) My beliefs only affect my life in the sense that I think about the consequences of the decisions I make on a daily basis.
2. If you could choose anywhere in the world, where would you like to live? Why? Israel. If there was no conflict and life was peaceful I would love to live there. I have been there twice and can honestly say that I felt so at home and at peace with myself when I was there. Life felt more relaxed and less hectic. Everyone just enjoyed being.
3. What do you hate about being a mom? Lack of a full nights sleep. I am totally …
