New granddaughter

Friday, November 01, 2013

To all my friends out there in Spark Land:

Just wanted to let everyone know that my new granddaughter was born on Oct. 28 at 7:55 p.m. She weighed 8 lbs., 3 oz. and was 20" long. Mom and daughter are doing great. Funny thing is Ella Marie weighed the same as my daughter when she was born. She was also half an inch smaller.

It's been a while since I've been on here and I mentioned it to a few people once I found out my daughter was going to have a baby so I thought I would get the word out.

Hawaii trip Jan. 23-30, 2013

Monday, February 04, 2013

Here's the blog I promised. I decided to back up my new computer on Friday, not realizing that it was going to take two days to do it! emoticon

We took off Wednesday morning at about 10 am and got in to Honolulu at about 2 that afternoon. We got to our rooms and walked around Honolulu.



The above picture was taken from our room.

We also went down to Waikiki and watched the sunset. It was beautiful!



We did a lot of walking while we there. We walked to the Honolulu Zoo,



and the International Market.



When we didn't walk, we went to places like Dole Plantation,



Pearl Harbor,



and the Mighty Mo (The Missouri).



Along with the sightseeing, we did managed to get a football game in. The day before the game, there was Ohana Day. Ohana means family. Basically, all the football players were introduced to the fans, and the cheerleaders and mascots kept the fans entertained. Outside of the stadium, there was a flea market where Pro Bowl items, T-shirts, leis and other things were sold. The next day was the game and six of my Seahawks were there, and they all had a great showing! Our seats were on the NFC side of the field, four rows from the field. Great seats! We had a few sprinkles but that was it.



We managed to see a lot of things, but we missed out on a few things too. We had planned on going to luau but it rained most of the time we were there and they were canceled. One 24-hour period had seven inches! There was a flash flood warning while we were there. Also, by the time we went to The Arizona and got over to The Missouri, we were too late to tour it. We did stand outside and marveled at the size of the ship.

We also didn't make it to Diamondhead. We had planned to go on Thursday, but the rain started on that day and none of us had rode a city bus and didn't know that you had to pull the little rope above us to let the bus driver know that we wanted to get off the bus. We ended up making the loop from Honolulu to something like Sea World and back.

If the NFL decides that the players made an effort this year and lets Hawaii host the Pro Bowl again, DH and I have decided that we will go back next year. It was a lot of fun, and we definitely want to go back.

My holiday plan

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

It's a pretty simple plan.

I plan to continue to log in all my food and drink.

I plan to continue to using Sparkpeople videos and my nifty new elliptical to get my exercise in. If the weather is good, I plan to walk.

I plan on getting at least 7 hours of sleep each night.

I plan on walking away from any goodies that may make their way into the office unless they are freggies.

Staying on track during the holidays

Monday, November 26, 2012

This holiday season, I plan to continue to use the SP tracker and get at least 30 minutes of exercise. I feel so much better when I exercise in the evening, and I sleep so much better when I exercise at night! I will continue walking on my lunch and I will make sure that the Christmas snacks I eat will be the good for you kind. emoticon
