    PEEPS!!! LOL!!! They are made right here in Bethlehem, PA!!
    I could hardly concentrate on what you were saying ’cause I was watching the changing Peeps so much!!

  2. T2Nashville says:

    Me, too, Decolady! They kept changing positions, and I kept trying to figure out if they really were Peeps. Oh, Lord, the things I used to do with those little chicks…

  3. LOL. Glad you guys enjoyed the peeps. :-)

    I need to add something about Carnie. So many out there judging her. Shoe needs to be on the other foot. I say wait until you are 7-8 years past surgery before you are even allowed to say anything about her Weight loss surgery.

    Oh…and she is tiny in stature…cause my girl Lynnda is tiny and if Lynnda says she’s tiny..then ya know Carnie’s tiny.

    OMG!!! I laughed so hard when I watched this weeks show I just had to comment about it! The thing you did with the peeps in the background is just toooo funny. I had a good laugh which I greatly needed! I always say if you don’t laugh you’ll cry. Great show! I always look forward to Friday because I know I get to watch you gals! Especially now since I am 4 weeks away from my roux-en-y surgery. I love Carnie Wilson and I agree with Lynnda- she is an inspiration. I was wondering if you ever did a show on what to take in your hospital bag? You have any suggestions what to take/pack? Thanks again for making me laugh every Friday! I feel like your two of my closest friends now!

  5. Thanks so much for the review, ladies! I appreciate it and just posted the video on my blog, twitter, you know, the “empire.” lol

    Thanks again!

  6. Awesome segment on Carnie. I think I hold the world record for shortest research time. I saw Carnie on Good Morning America and called for a consult 15 minutes later. Carnie is the reason I got a second chance in life and I so appreciate you guys and everything you said in support of her. I’m a year behind her I think and I am grateful for her getting out there first. Back then there were no support groups, no one had even begun to talk about addiction and things were VERY different then. I didn’t even see another post-op for 3 years after my surgery. It is a totally different world now in post-op land.

    Thanks for the depression segment too. I get a lot of searches on my blog for that very thing. Great job ladies! Smooches, Yvonne

  7. No Peep Hatin' says:

    Toni, Toni, Toni…How could you exploit those peeps? Stop the peep abuse and free Li’l Dee!

  8. No Peep hatin….I’m so sad to tell you…Li’l Dee….didn’t make it. She was viciously attacked by an overweight Chihuahua. The Chihuahua kept muttering something like “You and that damn Rottweiler”….I don’t know…she just went all crazy and stuff. The lhasa-poo did his best to try to save her but to no avail.

  9. I am a Peep abuser. I admit it fully. I blow those suckers up.

  10. No Peep Hatin' says:

    That would explain it. She looks like she ate a giant peep!

  11. Yeah.. Pebbles definitely needs to go on a peep free diet! :-)

  12. YourWLBuddy says:

    Regarding the question about what to take to the hospital: I recommend a pillow for the car ride home. I used mine also as a barrier because I have TWO overweight chihuahuas that don’t understand the words “no, you can’t jump on my stomach.”
    Best Wishes on your journey!
