Bruno Mars weighs 146 lbs…

…and so do I!  Granted, he’s a 5’5″ and a MAN, lol.  But that makes no difference to me.  He’s tiny and he’s hollywood. 🙂 Yes, in my last Bangin’ Swangin’ Challenge update I weighed about the same, but I’m still hype about it.  Since being on this weight loss journey the 140s have alluded me.  I would always get…

Crown Town

Hey guys, I wanted to pop in for a moment and share some random pictures from my recent weekend getaway. I spent the weekend in Charlotte, NC and did a few touristy things, like shop, take a Segway tour (it was so much riding on those things), visit the EpiCenter, eat out and walk around uptown Charlotte aimlessly.
