The Reunion

Monday, June 11, 2012

I had the BEST time at my high school reunion. It was wonderful seeing friends that I have known for most of my life. I can't tell you how fabulous everyone looked. None of the men had pot bellies and bald heads. They were all in, pretty much, great shape and yes, the hair was grey but wow, they looked fantastic.

The woman looked great too. Some were a little overweight (like me) but that went for everyone. They were truly beautiful women!!

I was voted youngest looking. Isn't that fabulous. Some of my friends looked really amazing, some not so much.

We had a Doctor (Pulmonolgist), business owners, and even a couple that had retired. I learned about those had passed away, and some that had made it big). I had so much fun.

I believe friendships like these last a lifetime!

    Sounds wonderful. I'm happy your walk down memory lane was a pleasant one, and that you have new wonderful memories to add. Sometimes it is good to look back.

Reunion

Thursday, June 07, 2012

On Saturday I am going to my high school reunion. I'm so excited to see some friends I haven't seen in decades. I won't say how many but suffice to say, it's a lot!

I wish I were thinner, wish I looked better but I am not going to let that stop me from going. I am sure not everyone looks fabulous either :)

This is going to be so much fun. I can't wait!

    I went to my 20th HS reunion - and it was funny, I weighed the same as when I graduated HS (which was about 180 lbs) - everyone said I looked great, and there were all these women who had gained weight. I realized that the best part about being chubby in HS was that I was still the same size, but now I looked good in it!

Ever Feel Like Screaming?????

Thursday, May 31, 2012

I finally feel that I am back on track. I've been eating much healthier and feel more focused. This is good.

I don't take seriously lots of supplements but I was watching Dr. Oz and he was talking about "Green Coffee Extract". What attracted me to this was the fact that it was proven to lower cholesterol. Since my cholesterol is always very high, I decided to try it. It's just a pill, twice a day after meals. It's all natural and now I've heard lots of buzz on this.

Interestingly enough, since I've been taking it, I've had more energy (no, it's not a caffeine fix) and I've been more regular (you know!).

This morning, I felt less bloated and my appetite is very low Yay!

So, I get on the scale which I haven't been on in over a week and guess what.....

Yes, I'm UP 2 lbs!! What the heck is going on here!!!

ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH - me screaming!!

    Have earplugs...will scream. Remember, that scale is just a number, it is not a reflection of your success. If you are focused, eating healthier, feeling more energized, etc. then you are on the pathway to success.

    I just made a post a lot like this one!

I'm telling myself it's just shifting water weight, muscle growth, etc. It will be gone, plus more, next time you weigh in!!

It's been a while...

Saturday, May 12, 2012


I'm so happy that I have pretty much finalized my summer vacation with my children. We are flying to Seattle and then taking a cruise to Alaska. We are all kind of excited about this. I haven't heard one person tell me that Alaska wasn't amazing!

My son is in a baseball game today. I love going and watching him play. At the end of the season last year he said he didn't want to play anymore but as the season got closer he decided he still wanted to play. He has been doing great and even hit for the cycle a couple of weeks ago. What an athlete that kid is!!

My daughter will be home from college for summer break by the end of the month. She is coming in late next week to go to the theater with my son and I. One of my clients got me tickets to a show because she likes me :). I work for some very nice people! It's been nearly a year since I've seen a Broadway production. I love the theater so much!

Need to go get dressed for the game. The best way to start a day!

    I have been lazy about going to the theater, I used to go all of the time BC (before chidlren). Do you watch that show Smash?

My daughter

Friday, March 23, 2012

Let me tell you about my daughter.

It was 21 years ago today that I saw the most beautiful baby I had ever seen. She arrived at 2:30 in the morning, on my due date and hasn't been on time for anything since!

In the nursery at the hospital, the nurses referred to her as the "pretty baby" and she was truly beautiful.

Growing up, she was painfully shy. Rarely spoke out to anyone, even in class but was a real chatterbox at home. Then, she blossomed!

High school she became a cheerleader and came out of her shell. She made friends, went to dances and had boyfriends. Oh yes, not an easy time for mom but she always made me proud.

Now she is in college. She is a junior getting a double degree in nutrition and marketing. She gets straight "A's" and belongs to a sorority that stresses education.

Today I look back at 21 years. It makes me cry, it makes me smile, it makes me proud of what my wonderful, beautiful daughter has accomplished already and I know that she will thrive in the years to come.

Happy Birthday honey, I love you more....

    Sounds like she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Thank you so much for sharing. I LOVE to read the "good stuff" about people's children. I hear plenty of the gripes. It really brightens my day when someone compliments their family. We need to share the positive more often!
