Finally the time has come!!

Okay so you know that day when you say this is the most I have ever weighed.. well I got there, actually I got there a couple of months ago and I actually have dropped about 10lbs since then but that is kinda like pulling a whisker off a elephant. So one of my BFF Melinda 'rock star' Brophy did this program this summer designed by another friend Ann 'amazing woman' Brough and Melinda lost 41lbs in 12 weeks. I know!!! Can you believe it! Well I am now a believer and Melinda has started her own group of this program called the Biggest Loser. So we had our first weigh in this morning and I was actually kinda happy because I weighed two pounds less on her scale! But I digress so the clincher with this program is that they email everyone who is doing the program how much everyone weighs after each weigh in. (luckily not this first time though, whew!) So I am not brave enough to post what I weigh on my blog but I will post how much I have lost, so started on Saturday the sixth. My Saturday post will hence be known as Slim Down Saturday and hopefully that will encourage me to keep going. Even though we only weigh in every other Saturday with Melinda I have to know weekly for my own peace of mind. Wish me luck!! on my quest to find my previous behind instead of the four I have now!!

Look what I did!!


So I recieved a sewing machine for Mother's day this year, and by that I mean I ordered it on Overstock and turned around and told John... Look what you got me!! Anyway so I have been trying to learn how to sew better. And this is my first pieced quilt and I had to show it off. I love how it turned out. And I love the colors!! Thanks for indulging me!

Flashback Friday (a little late)


I have been enthralled in the Olympics which is why my blog is being ignored, so I thought I would start with my two olympians, because I can't believe they are going to be starting 3rd and 5th grade because I can't be that old!!!

OH Yeah Olan Mills was the only way to go back then.
Loving the plaid shirt with the bow. And of course my mom did my perm and made the cute bows in my hair.
