Guest Blogger - Stacy IV

Please welcome photographer-extraordinaire a.k.a. Best Sister Ever a.k.a. Stacy for her final installment as a guest blogger. She gamely agreed to participate in Red Week.

I don't normally wear a lot of red. I just don't own a lot of it, but I must look at least a little foxy in it because those high school boys at Menards were sure watching me come down the aisles. I felt pretty good about that on the inside, but of course, was trying to look like I didn't care!
I'm touching up and redecorating my home office, so I have been scouting for shelves, lamps, etc. for the past week.

Here was my best attempt to bring in some red for Tina's "Red Week". I have a quick photo tip for you girls. You'll notice this week's photo is taken from above. If you want to look a little slimmer, just have someone a little taller (or get them up on some stairs above you - like my crazy tall husband did) and take some shots from above. It is slimming and more flattering. ;)

What I Wore While Making My 4th Trip to Menards this Week:

  • Red Earrings - Maurices
  • Black Necklace - Bergners
  • Red Henley Tank - Eddie Bauer
  • Black 3/4 Sleeve Button Down - Express
  • Belt - Kohls
  • Black Pants - AB Studio via Kohls
  • Black Ballet Flats - Clarks
  • Bracelet - Kohls

I'm reusing the black belt and necklace this week. I guess I don't have a ton of accessories and this just proves the point that if you buy the right pieces, you really can mix and match.

Food Details - 29 pts

I sadly failed again to take photos of my meals. Sorry, Tina! I'll try harder next time.

I'm still counting points on WW. I just made it in and maxed out my 29 pt allowance. I use 'em all


  • Diet Pepsi - 0 pts
  • Yogurt - 2 pts

Lunch - I tried something new and really like it! Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers. Yum!

  • Chicken Margherita Cafe Steamer - 6 pts
  • Red delicious apple - 2 pts
  • Diet Pepsi - 0 pts


  • Nutrigrain Bar - 3 pts


  • (2) Turkey Burgers - 14 pts
  • Pringles - 2 pts


Thanks, Stacy! It's been great having you as a guest blogger for April. Since Rand is even taller than your super-tall husband, I'm going to have to have him start taking those high-angled, slimming pics.

Nice outfit, Stacy - you do look great in red!

I am still doing WW (I've been maintaining my goal weight for 2 years), and unless you're not writing down your veggies, it doesn't look like you eat enough fruits/veggies. You need a bigger breakfast and more snacks! I try to eat as much unprocessed food as I can (just had a cup of fruit salad with fat-free plain yoghurt drizzled with honey - 3 pts).

You look great in that outfit and in red, Stacy. So, I'm dying to know how tall the crazy-tall men in your lives are! -Sharon

Sharon - I think that Stacy's husband is 6'4" and Rand is almost 6'6" so they're really tall guys without being freakishly tall.
