Operation She Wolf....OWWWW OOOOOOO!

So, it all began the other morning while I was watching my usual smattering of MTV and VH1 I was contentedly half listening and watching the videos when all of a sudden I looked up at the screen and I was mesmerized!

from this:

and this:

Over and over and over and over again I watched it! I think I officially have a girl crush! It was enough to make even Gisele Bundchen jealous over Shakira's physique. I mean come on...look at those poses! I didn't even know the body went that way! I think if I tried those moves I would dislocate something! Shakira is amazingly beautiful, and is not stick thin!
She is my body idol, which is why I am currently taking part in
Operation She Wolf

Operation She Wolf consists of:
Eating less
Walking and exercising more
Not eating after 7pm each night

So tell me...who is your weight loss, or body inspiration?

A video of my Sam as a baby...TEAR!!!

I can't believe that this video was almost 5 years ago. He looks the same, and he is just as sweet now as he looks in this video.

My newest pattern...

Here is my newest... car seat kick guards for the back of your front seats! Stop those kiddos from trashing the back of your seat with their dirty, salty, shoes.

Yesterday I had an amazing day! I woke up at 3 AM and was bound and determined after much hemming and hawing that I was going to research a new car for me. My 2000 Ford Windstar has, over time, been slowly having cumulative problems, and frankly...I am not one to like to put money into a car I already make a payment for, I therefore am a WARRANTY GAL!!!! I like to not have to worry that the repair person is going to call me back and say " Mrs Hooker...we have some bad news... your repairs will be $555.66...will that be check or charge?" I like to go into the repair station, and hand them my FULLY WARRANTED CAR'S keys, leave and know when I go back I have nothing to pay. That, my friends, is my PIECE OF MIND! You see, neither myself, nor my husband are mechanically inclined, therefore we PAY THROUGH THE EYES for car repairs, and I am SICK OF IT! I wanted a new car with an awesome warranty, and I was going to find the right car for me. After the boys got on the bus, Julia, Jay and I headed to Plattsburgh to the Hyundai Dealer. You see, Julia bought an adorable Hyundai Tucson 2 years ago and she LOVES IT! So I stopped by to see how the Elantra drove. We took a shiny, black, GLS model for a drive. LOVE AT FIRST DRIVE!!!!!! I haggled (the best I could) and got the dealer to give me $1600.00 for my VERY USED VAN, and I BOUGHT IT!!!!!!! It has the most options I have ever seen and it is AMAZINGLY cuter than my van. Oh, and it isn't RED!!! I hate RED cars and I have only had red cars because I was impulsive for those purchases. Here it is, and thanks for reading my long winded tale!!!! Tell me what you drive and why you chose it!!! I would love to hear your tales of travel!
