1. We celebrated a nice Mother's Day on Sunday. As part of my gift, I requested that we take some photos on our front step with our camera's self-timer & tripod...
Later that afternoon, my mom and her friend, Jim, came over for a visit and stayed for supper.
2. Today marks 139 days for me without sugar & deep-fried foods....
This is going fairly well. A lot of my food options are limited, but I just make sure that I have lots of fresh fruit in the house (my favourites lately are watermelon, strawberries and grapes-- yum!) I'm always a little surprised though at what tempts me... Yesterday at supper, it was the ice cream treats my kids were having... and then later that evening, it was the leftover Lindt Easter bunner that my mom had given Sage on Sunday. It just smelled so good! But, I resisted! LOL!
I haven't gone to the clinic to weigh myself lately, but I have noticed that all of my spring clothes are fitting nicely and nothing has been too tight!
3. It's been so nice this week that we've been spending quite a few of our afternoons & evenings (before tkd) outside: going for bike rides & playing tennis.
4. Austin's Jr. High did a musical production of Annie Jr. this week and Austin played the part of Drake, the butler. He had spoken lines, sang, danced and was in several scenes.... and he did a terrific job! Here are a few photos:
5. I made a card
for him to let him know how proud I am of him: the commitment he showed to rehearsing and the effort he put into his part-- that all paid off with truly wonderful performances!
I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (rustic white, canyon clay), stamps (Label Basics, Wonderful Words Additions, Movers & Shakers Sentiments) and dies (uppercase block alphabet, seeing stars.) I also used My Mind's Eye patterned paper and decorative brad.
Thanks for looking!
