Catching Up!

It's been so long since I've posted or read my blogs.  I am missing out on all of the fun!  I am hoping now that Fall is coming, that I might be able to set aside some time to read and post.  Who am I kidding?  I am the least busy person you will ever meet.  I just have to re-prioritize my time better.  I have been spending way to much time just sitting, reading and stalking Instagram.  Why did I ever start an IG account?  I waste so much time there.  Oh well.  I am making a promise to myself to devote more time here, posting and reading.

I've decided to post some pictures to show you what's been going on in my life since we last talked :)


Our youngest, Dominic has moved out 
and has begun his Junior year at college.  
This year, he has decided not to live on campus, 
and has gotten a little cottage near the lake near his university.  
He is rooming with my nephew who is also his best friend, 
so they get along perfectly!

My boy, caught off guard eating pizza :)  

Their new home :) 


I went to a surprise 50th birthday party for my friend Lori. 
This is our little "Girls Night Out Group"
From the right, Angie, Lori (the birthday girl), 
Michelle, Me and Connie, my sister.
Missing was Julie, my SIL 


My daughter Blayne celebrated her 29th birthday!!
I know.......29!!  It doesn't seem possible that my baby is 29.  
She is my first born.  My only girl.  
She has grown into the most wonderful person.  
I love spending time with her.  
She supports me, and helps me grow.
I am so proud of all she has done and who she has grown to be!

Here is my sister Connie, Me, and Blayne
 on a little Birthday shopping trip!!

I don't know how I ended up front and center lol


I am officially down 25 pounds!!
I began June 21st, and this is my weigh in from Monday!


And of course my little girl Ava is still just as adorable as can be!!

So, those are some of the little things that have been going on in my life lately. :)

I hope everyone has been well, and you have been staying positive and happy!

  1. You've been busy! Congrats on the 25 pounds gone missing - that's wonderful. I follow a few people on Instagram but can see how easy it would be to fall down the rabbit hole with it, so I limit myself...otherwise, I'd never get to knit!

  2. Congrats on the 25 lbs loss mark. Three cheers!
    I have been following your progress on instagram and you are doing great!

    Great to catch up, I too started just few weeks back.

    Happy belated birthday to your girl. And, your son's new home looks great!

  3. Congrats on the loss! It sounds like you've been so busy! Keep it up. :)
