The Wedding Was Beautiful and We're Pooped

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

The wedding was beautiful. Our daughter was such a gorgeous bride (no bias here!) and my hubby looked so handsome in his tux! I haven't taken the cameras (disposables) to get the pictures made yet so I won't post them for a few days but I will post them. Both hubby and I ran ourselves ragged and are pooped. I will post more later about the wedding.

We Got To Texas Safe And Sound and Cold

Thursday, October 28, 2010

After being assured that it was in the 80's this week - great shorts weather I might add - we got to Texas and they are having a cold snap! Thank goodness I packed some jeans and one shirt with 3/4 length sleeves. Tomorrow I will buy a sweater or sweatshirt. It is about 50 or 60 degrees with a nasty cold wind and these Florida bones are chilly! But the good news is that we are here and ready for the fun to begin. Our daughter will be here soon to go out for dinner so I must sign off. More later!

The Wedding Is Finally Here

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I don't know where the time has gone! It seems like it was only yesterday when our daughter's fiancée was asking my husband for his blessing on his marriage proposal to our daughter. Suddenly a year and a half is gone and the big day is this weekend. There have been so many little tasks to complete and we've done them. All that is left to do is to pack and get to the airport.

This will not only be a wedding, it will be a large family gathering as well. My husband is one of eight children and all but two of his siblings have children of their own. It may be bittersweet because his father's health is frail so this may be the last time everyone is together. (His mom passed away many years ago) Since I come from a very small family, it can be very overwhelming for me at times. Hubby's family gets loud and loves to dance, party and laugh. They are lots of fun. I've been told that the groom's family is large, loud and loves to dance and party too so we should all get along well.

I'm not even worried about my eating because it's so ingrained in me! I know that I'll make wise choices and if I don't, as soon as I get back I'll resume my regular routine. We have a place to stay that has a pool and gym so I can exercise every day. I will miss all my Spark friends while we are gone but I will have pictures when I return and will share them with all of you. So, I'll see everyone next week!

Have to share some good news....

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

I have to share some good news with all of you. When hubby was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in June, his A1C was 12.7 and his sugar was 324. We have worked together as a team to cut out sugar and eat a healthy diet. He has done a great job and I'm so proud of him!!! Today we got his 4 month A1C blood test with sugar back and it was all the way down to 6! His doctor was very, very impressed! He said that a 6.7 point drop in the A1C in a period of 4 months is absolutely outstanding! Hubby's calculated blood sugar was 76 too! I am so proud of my husband I could just pop!

A Fun Weekend

Sunday, October 17, 2010

Hubby and I had a really fun weekend.

On Friday night we went to the Tow Jam in Bartow. If you're not familiar with this; the third Friday night of every month the City of Bartow (Florida) closes down part of Main Street and has a live band play and an antique car show. Vendors sell food/drinks and some crafts, activities are available for children and some of the restaurants are open for business. The Tow Jam is open to the public and it is free. We really enjoyed ourselves!

On Sunday afternoon, we attended The Hispanic Festival in Auburndale, Florida. We listened to a variety of wonderful live bands play, ate some delicious food, did some walking and visited with some friends who were vendors. The sun was really hot in the early afternoon so the scheduled cattle events had to be continued later in the afternoon when it got cooler. I had wanted to see that but could understand why they didn't do it. We had a great time and returned home hot, tired and happy.

I've always been a person who loves to listen to all kinds of music. To be able to listen to it twice in one weekend was a rare treat. All of the bands played with enthusiasm and flair. The people listening got caught up in the music just as I did and responded to it. It makes the music almost magical. People at both places were dancing and having fun; which was a pleasure to watch. I love to hear the sounds of laughter and enjoyment and see smiles on the faces around me. That's what makes the heart take flight!
