Extra Diet Coke Morning

Yes, it is one of those days. My morning starts with a diet coke. I try and quit but it never sticks. Maybe coffee or tea would be better but I would have to make it . Diet coke is easy and convenient. I don't think I could switch to water.
So why is it an extra diet coke morning? Last night the Zumba studio had a 1st anniversary Zumbathon. 2 hours if Zumba. 1 hour I can do, 2 hours and I am pooped.
I have made some progress on Marietta.

I didn't have a chance to stitch last night.

Maybe tonight. I have to pull together my info for the Sampler Group meeting on Saturday. The program is Carolina Girls :)
I received this sweet chart from Catherine over at diamonddc blog.

It was so kind of her to think of me.
I am going to leave you with a pic of one o my irises.

Have a great rest of the week!

I'd need more than a diet coke after 2 hours of Zumba!
You're making good progress on Marietta and that chart is darling. I love Iris' - they remind me of my grandmother who grew some amazing ones!
Have a great day!

Your iris and WIP look great.

Two hours of zumba...I'd need a stretcher and an oxygen tank at the very least! Hope the body isn't too sore. Good for you.


Melissa said...

Oh that Iris is gorgeous. Wish I had one in my garden!

Marietta is looking great!

Omigosh, TWO HOURS of Zumba??!? Get me a vat of water and a box of Godiva, STAT! Beautiful Iris!

Carol said...

My sister is the same way, Chris--has to start her day with her diet Coke :) Good for you for doing all that Zumba--I am way too uncoordinated to ever follow those routines!

Love your progress on Marietta and such an adorable chart from Catherine. I am so addicted to bunny charts lately...

Enjoy the rest of your day!

What a gorgeous Iris color. Your sampler looks great and my hat's off to you for the Zumba. I get the DVD's for the music.

Hi Chris, 2 hours of Zumba-you amaze me! I grown after my 45 minutes on machines at the Y. The sampler and iris are both so pretty. I won't be seeing iris for another 6 weeks or so. We are still in the 50-60 range and colder at night!

valerie said...

2 hours of zumba! Wow, I'd be pooped too! Great progress on your sampler. Your iris is amazing! I've never seen one that color before!

butterfly said...

Your WIP is looking good , beautiful Iris what a lovely colour.

Krista said...

That iris is beautiful and so is your sampler! Wow, after two hours of zumba-ing you deserve a real coke! :D

I think I've seen that chart stitched up somewhere and it's very cute. I love that gorgeous colour in the iris - the deep, deep pink.

Margaret said...

Love your progress so far! I'm shuddering at the idea of even doing 15 minutes of zumba, much less 2 hours. lol! I'm so out of shape. Ah well.

Ranae said...

At least your morning drink is diet, lol
I love zumba, I'm so addicted, lol
We have blacklight zumba parties for 2 hours, 2 hours is all I can take, lol
Nice progress and I love that Easter pattern
Shake it!

Penny said...

You're making beautiful progress on Marietta!
I commend you on doing 2 hours of zumba! I can't imagine doing zumba for any length of time. I'm pretty sure I would have to be resuscitated. :)
Your Iris is so pretty!

Lynn said...

Ok, so you'd have to roll me out of bed after even 15 min. of Zumba, lol!
I'm a Coke Zero fanatic myself and yes I could drink it first thing out of bed in the morning. Just as good a caffeine fix as the coffee!
Marietta is coming along nicely. Lovely stitching!
That is one gorgeous iris!

Sally said...

I'm pooped just thinking about 2 hours of Zumba!

Beautiful progress on Marietta.

Catherine said...

Oh, I hear you on the coke! I don't drink coffe, so when I need caffeine in the am, I drink coke. I have cut way back, but sometimes it is still what I need! Great stitches and pretty iris!
