Dis and a lil bit of dat

~ 2 of the quints are coming home today!!! YAY!! Congrats Ethan and Casey!
**EDITED TO ADD: Baby Jack - the lone boy- came home. They thought there would be 2 coming, but so far only Jack has been released.

~ I went to Plato's Closet the other day. My mom told me they have super cute purses. Ok, I'm just not stylish I guess because I looked at all those purses and all I thought was, "Yep, those are purses alright." I have no clue what would be cute or cool or whatever...

~ Tristan, Alec and Izzy are at the ex's this week for Spring break. It sucks because Taj and Liv won't sleep upstairs. Liv usually sleeps with Iz and Taj sleeps with Alec. So now Taj is on a mattress on the floor in our room and Liv is pushing me off the bed and having explosive nocturnal tourettes.

~ So, I've lost 16 pounds on Atkins. And I guess I'm slowly adding more carbs. I started by eating carbs on the weekend- though not a ton. I'm trying to watch calories, exercise, etc... I just wanna be a hottie. Is that too much to ask?

~ I like to comment on Seiuli's Facebook wall everyday. He likes to delete my comments every evening. Apparently saying things like, "Hey babe, tonite how 'bout you dress up as a cop and I'll pretend to be a shoplifter..." embarrasses him. But if he wrote something like that on MY wall I would LOVE it. Go figure...

~ A co-worker of Sei's sent him a text that said something like "I tagged up a bunch of your pics on Facebook... your wife is a trip... takes someone special to stay fun with that many kids... and to stay thin... you're a lucky man" or something like that. I was reading it over Sei's shoulder so I'm not positive of the last part. He's either "lucky" or "blessed." ;) I thought it was nice. Sei tells me I'm a trip and thin all the time, but to have some random person say it made me feel good. I mean, I love Sei, but I'm also sleeping with him. If he said "You're annoying and fat" he'd look stupid. lol

~ Favorite comment of the week so far:
Dear diary:I read a blog post today that included both the words "pimp" and "hymn."
By Omar.
I thought the same thing when I wrote it... well, not the "Dear Diary" but the rest.

16 POUNDS!?!?!?!? That is crazy! I've never lost 16 pounds except after childbirth and that doesn't count! That is so awesome Tori. Congratulations. If you were here, I'd make you some chocolate chip cookies and potato salad to fatten you up. :)

Tori :) said...

Well considering I gained like 13 when I moved here, I guess technically I'm only down 3 from my weight like last summer. :(

MommyJ said...

weight loss still counts... no matter how much you gained before you lost... way to go. :)

the pimp and hymn comment is hilarious.

Yvonne said...

Hooray for the 13 pounds!!!! "I just wanna be a hottie"--hey, you ALREADY ARE--and you know I don't mean that to sound creepy ; )

Lauren said...

I am SO impressed with your weightloss! You are a superstar!! Congrats girl!

Umm...some girls tagges Ted as "the hottest guy they have ever met" or something along those lines, on Facebook..and I gagged. The End.

I leave Ted comments on his wall all the time. I don't think he reads them. haha!

I love that comment of Omar's! haha!

Shelby Lou said...

omars comment rocks my world.

i am so proud of you! 16 pounds is a lot. did you know in england they call them stones. so if you want to sound hardcore you can say i lost 16 stones!!

Suzanne said...

Congrats on the weight loss! You really are a hottie! That must have felt good to hear someone else say it. After all, aren't our husbands always obligated to tell us that? ;)

Yay for the quints! It's been so fun to follow their story.

lorilynn said...

16 lbs!!! Wow. I need to try that. Can I just say you make me laugh and I really enjoy your posts!

Klin said...

I love your daily wall posts to Sei. He's a lucky guy. And then he deletes them. Huh?

I don't post on hubs wall. He never reads his Face book. I set it up so I could say who I was married to. Silly? Yeah. I adore him.

omar said...

But considering that you were probably once less than 10 pounds, I'd still say you've likely gained a considerable amount of weight.

Hopefully that was ridiculous enough that I don't have to say I was joking.

My wife has so far refused to set up a Facebook account, I almost set one up for her for the same reason as Klin. Heh. I would also likely delete any racy wife comments from my page, as I have a lot of co-workers as facebook friends, and no thanks to the awkward work situations!

That girl said...

The story on the Quints is amazing, I just read it, via your side link.

16 lbs is awesome! My mother in law is on some crazy 'give yourself B12 injections weekly and you'll lose weight' diet.

How do you find the Atkins diet? Is it hard for you to cook for you, and then for everyone else something different?

Mar and Koki said...

You make me laugh everytime I read your blog. I love the comments on Sei's FB. Wouldn't it be great if Aunty Eleanor was on facebook and read the comments too LOL. Tell Sei to leave them. It makes us all smile.

NOBODY said...

"hey, fatty, come here and give me some of that hot annoying you're so good at"

Yeah. Just doesn't quite work.

Congratulations on the weight loss. That's pretty awesome. I'm being really nice right now because girls like me hate it when skinny girls like you talk about losing weight. It's like Bill Gates talking about saving a buck or something.

And explosive nocturnal tourettes is hilarious.

Momma Magpie said...

You are a hottie! But sixteen pounds!? Yahhooo! Doesn't that feel so good!?

What in the world do you eat on the adkins? I found myself starving, but I may not have been doing it right. I got sick of meat and eggs. But I tried the south beach diet and didn't lose a single pound. Yayyy for you, Girl!

Physcokity said...

In response to #2 don't go to Plato's closet for purses. At least that's been my experience, but the point was look back at the previous post. If you like it and it's functional who cares what anybody else thinks?

16 lbs. definitely not too much to ask. Congrats!

Gretch! said...

I can totally relate to the nocturnal tourettes!!!
