**Speedy Slimmer: Crease-Proof, Tailored Blazer or Suit Jacket
These are great because they can help to hide your generous booty and/or gut. Also, left unbuttoned, it will create a vertical line to your handsome face, drawing people's attention there, instead. The "tailored" aspect is important, as well, because there won't be any excess material adding to your figure. And, of course, the fewer creases, the lesser the visual betrayal of an issue with fit.
**Speedy Slimmer: Shapewear
This is the most obvious solution. Shapewear for men will hold you together so you don't have to make the extra effort to suck-in and puff out your chest every time a cutie walks by. It'll also contour your body to give you that tighter look.
**Speedy Slimmer: Dark Colors
Male or female, dark colors are always a winner, with black serving as the king to that winning crowd. Wearing colors like navy, charcoal gray, chocolate brown, dark green, and black will smooth out your bulges and thus, your silhouette. Also, dressing as closely to monochromatic as possible will slim your form, as well. You can incorporate pops of color, if you wish, in your layering.
**Speedy Slimmer: Well-Fitting Pants with Belt
Well-fitting pants that sit on your natural waistline, and are loose enough to drape, will do the trick. The belt, buckled just enough, will hold your pants comfortably in place and will help to define your waist. Just make sure it is not cutting into your gut, or it will be obvious what's going on there.
**Speedy Slimmer: Light-Weight Fabrics
Easy. Cutting-down on your clothing's bulk, will cut-down on your overall bulk. Find some light-weight clothing here.
**Speedy Slimmer: Long Sleeves
The shorter the sleeve, the more your middle will stand out. Make sure your sleeves are just long enough to cover the base of your hand, when your arms are resting at your sides. Also make sure that they are fitted closely to your arms, to avoid an unflattering baggy effect.
**Speedy Slimmer: Vertical Stripes
Now, I'm not talking Beetle Juice-style stripes. The focus is more on pinstripes. Subtlety is paramount. Vertical pinstripes will elongate you, whereas horizontals and diagonal patterning will bring your look closer to "short 'n stout"--yes, like the teapot.
**Speedy Slimmer: Vests
Here's a great way to conceal your middle. Shy away from baggy fits that will add bulk, and make sure the vest is not screaming at the seams, or you'll be alerting people to that region. The vertical cable design also will help to elongate your body. .
**Speedy Slimmer: Conservative-Width Ties
If you're of heavier proportions, skinny ties (about 3" or 3.25" across) will really emphasize that fact. Skinny ties can also make your face/head look bloated/inflated. And, while wider ties add to a man's apparent confidence, overdoing it is also just overemphasizing your larger size. Choose something more conservative, and it'll compliment and flatter you.
Tonight I'm taking Sawyer on a therapy visit..lets home he's not Rude to the residents at the Assisted living Center! Church was good last night, but the storm knocked the power off so we had to shut down early because the children's wing & nursery was dark!!

Yesterday was a busy day! First we had lunch with an office full of Fellas from ONG at Denny's.. We went to the one on Meridian where I had a delish Black & Bleu salad..Jim Roundtree is the owner there, and he took GREAT care of us!! I love all the new menu items..MM MM!
After that I had to race home and get Miss Payslee ready..We had a Therapy Visit at Bradford Village in Edmond. We love going there because they bring all the residents into the foyer and they all get to watch Payslee Do Tricks and love on her.
As you can see, Miss Pays is wearing a fabulous plaid dress with a huge white bow, and lace collar..It was so freakin cute! I had a matching plaid green bow made for her too..She was quite popular in her fabulous little dress..The little ladies just LOVE it when Pays dresses up, and this was one of their favorite dresses!
After the Therapy visit we went back home to hang out with Sawyer & Rally. Sawyer gets to go on a visit on Thursday to The Fountains at Canterbury. He's getting better about visiting. I'm hoping that by taking him to the same place each time, he becomes more comfortable, and starts like going to visit..
Has anyone else noticed that Phone talking is pretty much over? Nowdays if someone wants to talk to you, they text..which I also enjoy..But in the past few weeks of my 'dating' life, I've noticed that its all about 'texting' and not really ever talking to people..This usually isn't a problem unless you are trying to be funny..Its MUCH harder to be funny through texting..but so far, I'm making it happen so I won't cry too much..but the problem with emails, or texts, is that people can't tell your emotions, or expressions..Is She being funny? Sarcastic? Sad? Its almost impossible to read those things through texts. A couple of weeks ago I quit talking to this guy because all he ever wanted to do was 'text' me..Never wanted to make plans..Never wanted to go on a date..Just wanted to "Text".. Just wanted to be "Textual".. Well that got irritating, so I just quit texting him back. Make a plan. I'm a planner! Come on! lol.. Okay..thats my rant about that little ditty for today..
My parents are still in Denver. Yesterday our Bull that we raised, Renegade won Reserve Grand Champion, which was HUGE. He has the cutest little black and white face. He's a Simmental. Meanwhile, his sister Lydia brought $19,500 for HALF of her at the sale..Which is pretty freakin amazing!! She will be an awesome Cow! So its been a good Denver Trip.
Tonight I'm headed to Church at Crossings. I am going to a class at 6:30 called "Religion in Politics".. Its been great so far, and very informative..I find myself sitting in the pew saying "WHO KNEW!".. Join me if you like..

*Be nice to the person behind the counter - never be on the phone while talking to someone in person.
*Take it outside.
*Use your inside voice.
*Don't rive to distraction - don't talk or text while driving.
*In the theatre, turn off your phone, or put it on vibrate.
*Don't use the cellphone at the gym.
*Do not use in the public restrooms.
*Remember the people around you. Try not to annoy them.
*Wearing a bluetooth headset when you're not talking on the phone just makes you look like a geek.

This week is a busy week. I've got two therapy visits with Payslee & Sawyer, and then I also need to go by and see Miss Dorothy, My hospice lady. I found out yesterday that my grandma Leona's (Who went to heaven in 1999) last living Sibling, Mildred Hawkins (Who I call Aunt Mildred) passed away yesterday. I'm not sad about it though because she was miserable, and had not felt good for about the last year of her life. I went to see her not long ago, and we had a good time laughing. She's always been so funny, and I loved hanging out with She & My Grandma, but now I know she is in a much better place, and she gets to see my Grandma Leona again. I will sing at her service on Friday. She was a very neat lady, and I loved her so much..but I know she is much happier where she is now..

Well last night I took Payslee to Sterling House in Edmond for a Therapy Visit. She loves it there because she has a few 'favorite' people that she looks forward to visiting with. They always give her cuddles and pets and she smiles so big at them! She (Of course) was dolled up in her leopard print fur dress with a diamond bone bow in her hair that she got for Christmas from her Grandma Robbie.. lol.. She looked adorable!
Tonight I am having some friends over for a Nintendo Wii party. You can play up to 4 players on the Wii, so we are going to play Mario Kart, Guitar Hero & the Sports resort game .It will be fun. I love the Wii! I've been using my Wii Fit almost every day..and I also wore my Sketchers "Shape Ups" the other day..I was kinda surprised, but my legs were actually sore! I wore them again today so we'll see if they make me sore again.. Speaking of, I went to the Mall yesterday and let those Massage people in the mall who have the chairs work on me for awhile..Man! They really LEAN into it, but it was a great massage..
Today mom and Steve leave for Denver. They are taking some of our show calves that we raised to show there, and also be on 'display'..I hope they do well. They are all so pretty. Here's a picture of one of them, "Lydia & Lexus"
I went to my teacher Orientation at Francis Tuttle. I'm going to start teaching "Principals of Broadcasting" January 25 on the Rockwell Campus. Its basically going to cover the ins and outs of radio..if you would like to take it you can sign up at FrancisTuttle.com. Its offered on Monday nights from 6-8, and I think its going to be pretty fun. Its also going to be a great class for anyone that is interested in getting into the radio or tv business, whether it be in promotions, on air, sales, sports, or whatever.. I cover it all! I'd love to see you there!
I'm no longer selling the KC Sheperd Gospel CD at the radio station..so if you want one click the "BUY IT NOW" at the bottom of the page..Have a great weekend folks!

Yesterday was a fun day. Mom came up to go to Sams and get ready for her trip to Denver. She and my dad are going up on Friday and will be there a week. We have show-calves that they are taking, so she wanted to pick up some stuff at Sams, and also go to the Doctor. She's had this stupid cough for like a month, so I took her to a 'Quick Clinic' and it turns out that she had bronchitis, so she got a shot, and some scripts, and she is all better now! She wasn't wanting to cough all the way to Denver, and I can't say I blame her. So we had a fun time running around. Her therapy dog, Junior, is in a contest..If you want to vote for him click here Bissel MVP PET:
Tomorrow I have a orientation for my class at Francis Tuttle. It's for all first-time teachers, and its two hours long..so we'll see what happens with that. I start teaching my "Principals of Broadcasting" Class on January 25, and will teach through April, and then I'll teach another course of it this Summer. I teach for 2 hours on Monday nights. I hope that I have 2 hours worth of stuff to say! However, I've never really been at a loss for words, so I think I'll be fine. lol.
Yesterday the dog babes and I took a long walk and it was so nice outside! When I came home I got on my Wii fit, and did some strength training..Which makes me realize that I am a wussy.. lol.. I need to start lifting weights. Lauren says that we are going to start taking a spinning class.. Geesh..I'll probably have to walk outta that..haha! Have a good day!

Before Freezing Weather
*Wrap all exposed pipes located outside or in unheated areas of the home.
*Remove garden hoses from outside faucets. Insulate outside faucets with Styrofoam cover, rags or paper.
*Cover vents around the foundation of your home.
*Know where your property owner's cut-off valve is located and how to use it. Apply oil such as WD-40 to the cut-off valve before operating to prevent the valve from breaking. The valve is located adjacent to the water meter box under a 6" metal lid.
In Sub-Freezing Weather
*Drip outside faucets 24 hours a day (5 drops per minute). This is not necessary unless temperatures are expected to be 28 degrees or below for at least 4 hours. (Be sure to turn off the faucets after the threat of freezing weather.)
*Open cabinet doors under sinks adjacent to outside walls.
*In unheated garages, shut off water to washing machines. Water softeners should be drained and protected from freezing temperatures.
*In sustained sub-freezing weather, let water drip slowly from inside faucets.
*Take extra precautions to protect pipes that have frozen in the past.
If You Are Not Going To Be At Home
*Cut water off at the property owner's cut-off valve.
*Drain all outside water faucets if your house will be unoccupied for several days (leave outside faucets open). Or, leave home heating system on at a low setting.
*Open cabinet doors under sinks adjacent to outside walls.

Okay..Now onto the New Years Eve Drama..First off, I did have a date, but I brought my friends along too because we had already made plans to hang out. So we started off with Dinner & Drinks at Chelinos, which was funtimes..Then we headed over to Edna's to have a few lunchboxes..All was well until I left my Iphone on the table and my sneaky friend Lauren used it to update my facebook status to say "I love my Friends more than my dogs".. Which of course, caused an uproar on Facebook..lol.. So from that moment on I had to take my phone into the bathroom with me.. Which was a bad idea..Why? Because it dropped IN THE TOILET!! You all know how much I love my Iphone, so my heart was breaking..thankfully it had a cover on it, and recovered..It appears to be working fine! Woo hoo!! Thank you Iphone Fairies!!
Now..as for the date..Nice guy.. Not the guy for me. He probably hated us because we were laughing at stupid things and acting foolish..so God Love him for going with us! Back to the drawing board..
I did go to Sunday School for the first time on Sunday, and the Lord sent me a sign that I was supposed to be there..You know what it was? My teacher was doing the lesson and guess what he brought up? "Nobody wants to play Rhythm guitar behind Jesus" by My Oak Ridge Boys.. I tell ya, the Lord gives us signs all the time..we just have to be paying attention..
Have a good day!
