breakthrough #1: Isabella has woken up dry three mornings in a row. (setback #1…yesterday morning she marked my wool coat with her urine)

breakthrough #2: I watched Die Hard, Die Hard 2 (aka Die Harder) and half of Die Hard with a Vengeance. I’m PLOWING through my 11th new years resolution.

breakthrough #3: the husband and i finally figured out what on the football god’s green earth this – that sits midfield – is:

at Gillette Stadium

and no, it’s not a product of the Dharma Initiative.

what is it, actually, is a TERRIBLE rendition of the lighthouse and bridge at the stadium…

um, yeah, okay…

breakthrough #4: I’m officially on my way to starting to get ready for my trip to Stl Lucia in March. i officially have a Juicy island dress, courtesy of my lovely, lovely sister who spoils me.

it’s the closest i could find…only the actual dress is cotton and black, not terry and white…because, seriously, i would NEVER wear a white dress. EVER. i mean, of course, besides at my wedding, of course.

breakthrough #5: I’m officially on my way to being able to wear it without looking pregnant. as of this morning, i’m down 7.5 pounds. which means i lost the 6 i gained while we were in Atlanta, plus an bonus pound and a half. this is thanks to SouthBeach lite…the diet i’m currently living by.

breakthrough #6: my new site design is almost complete. all thanks to Miss Becca and her wonderful husband Jason. They are amazing, amazing people and i simply adore their entire family. These are people i KNOW i’d be friends with in real life. These are people i wish lived closer to me because i WANT to be friends with them.

here’s a little snippet…but this is all you are getting…

so don’t even ask for anything else…

breakthrough #7: it’s not a breakthrough at all…but it’s something i found absolutely hilarious…even though it’s really not all that funny…i just LOVE Juno and seeing Ah-nold in a pregnancy suit makes me laugh…

don’t forget to vote….i’ve been nominated for FOUR Canadian Blog Awards. Please vote for me! This year you can only vote ONCE per CATEGORY per round…so i’d love it if you could throw at least one my way…

i’m nominated in for Cheaper Than Therapy for:

  1. I’m liking the new look preview… the colours look sharp, and the contrast is great between the blue/green/violet. Does this mean we’re done with the banner that covers the entire window at 800×600?

  2. I can’t wait to see your new site! I love reading DasBecca too, and I know they will do a great job.
    Congratulations on the weight loss!

  3. You absolutely MUST share pics from St. Lucia since I shared mine from Hawaii.

  4. St. Lucia! Lucky! I hope you have lots of fun. And I voted for you!

  5. I just voted for you.
    I love that you’re battling it out with Rick Mercer in one category and the CBC in another category! (not that you won’t win).
    Great dress.

  7. I have ALWAYS wondered what that thing on the field is!!!! THANK YOU.

  8. I just love JK Simmons & Allison Janney in Juno! Funniest line (although there are so many so it is hard to narrow it down) is when Mac (Juno’s dad) says to his wife after Juno told them about being pregnant “I’m gonna punch that Paulie Bleaker in the weiner next time I see him” HA HA HA!!!
    Threw my votes in for you as well. Good luck!!

  9. That dress is amazing. I could never pull it off, though, being a short gal with overly (unnecessarily) large boobs and very little torso underneath. No matter how skinny, I would still look pregnant.

  10. OMG that is the CUTEST dress EVER! I am so coming to Canada and raiding your closet. But I bet I wouldnt fit in your clothes. Oh well.

    Yay for 3 dry nights!

  11. Too many things to respond to! At least you are kind enough to warn your readers…I just babble on for pages 🙂

    Excited for your trip! And the dress! And not looking pregnant in it!

    Also – that snippet of your new site looks smashing. Can’t wait to see it.

    And…the girls and I are going to see Juno for my birthday this weekend 🙂

  12. Came back, because I forgot to tell you that I already voted for you. Because YOU are awesome 🙂

    Comment by Angella on January 15, 2008
  13. I never knew what that was on the field at the Patriots stadium either. Thanks for the info.

    Comment by William on January 15, 2008
  14. I wanna see more of your new design! Can’t wait.

    Can non-Canadians vote? I guess I’ll find out…

    Comment by Jennifer on January 15, 2008
  15. Why yes they can! I just voted!

    Comment by Jennifer on January 15, 2008
  16. Love the new colour scheme, can’t wait for the unveiling…yes, I need to get a life.
    Yeah on the weight loss!
    Love the dress! Love that your sister spoils you – maybe she can send my sister an email –
    Great pottying news…erm..except the wool coat part.
    Now I need to go visit Miss Becca’s site seeing as I haven’t been there yet and then I’ll be off to vote for you 🙂

    Comment by Lesley on January 15, 2008
  17. Will you come to Atlanta and potty train my son? I’m afraid that Monseuir Poopy Pants will be wearing a diaper to his 3rd birthday party next month.

    Comment by Cristan on January 15, 2008
  18. I voted for ya!

    Comment by Mom On The Run on January 16, 2008
  19. How cute is that dress! Yay for not looking pregnant wearing it 🙂 That would be mission impossible for me at this point.

    Comment by Nadine on January 16, 2008
  20. Die Hard 2 was such a terrible movie (in a really good way). We never get snow like that in Washington DC (snowmobiles? seriously?). And that didn’t look anything like Dulles Airport. And did you notice when he picked up the payphone in the airport, it said “Pacific Bell”?

    Yeah, okay, so perhaps I paid too much attention to the details in that movie.

  21. Cute, cute dress. Congrats on your 7.5 pounds!!

    Comment by Fluent Brittish on January 16, 2008
  22. OMG. You are my hero, Ali. For real. Do you have *any* idea how long I have been trying to figure out what the hell that thing is on the field?! And I am a born & bred Patriots fan. By the way, my Perfect Super Bowl would be Green Bay & New England. Favorite player of all time against my favorite team of all time = I can’t possibly lose!
