Girls Day out

I got to spend a couple hours with my neice today. I wanted to make this a special treat for her, she didn't really know what we were doing just that she got to spend some time with me alone with no one else. When I picked her up I asked her want she wanted to do, she said she thought maybe we were going grocery shopping. I asked her if that would be OK with her, she said yes. I said well what if we do something else like go buy her a book, her smile said it all. Then when we walked into the nail salon I thought the smile was going to jump right off her face!! I wish I had my camera ready for that one!! here are a couple picsture of our day.

Mitchells Leaf Project

Mitchell had a big project to work on for the last several weeks. I gave him a few lessons in crafting and this is what he came up with. He was pretty proud of it and wanted to be the first to turn it in. So he took it in yesterday. It's not due until Friday.

First picture

I think I'm going to post a picture on the first of each month so I can see my progess. I also thought that going "public" with my weight loss journey would help keep myself on track and add a little more accountibility. Not sure if it'll work but it sure can't hurt. And who knows maybe along the way I'll inspire someone. So as of today my total weight loss is 57lbs....this is from my heaviest recorded weight. With 32lbs lost in the last 8 weeks.

Here's a photo that was taken on 5/26/08

and this is me today.....can you see a difference yet
