Pictures of Ruby Lite Meet in Annapolis MD

Sunday, May 16, 2010

Today I got to meet some great fellow Ruby-Lites. I had so much fun! Everyone is just so awesome here and even more awesome in person. I felt like I had known all of them forever. We sat and chatted and chatted and then went to lunch at Ruby Tuesday's and then some of us went back to the hotel and chatted more. I was actually very sorry to leave. Fortunately some of us near each other will see each other again in 3 weeks as we are doing the Susan Komen 5K in DC on June 5th.

I got to meet SparkPixie, Lorikb, Termitemom, Chopola, GoLucyGo and Sapphiremind (well, I work with her so I already know her, LOL).

You all are so

    WOW ! It really looked like a fun day. I have met a few fellow Sparkers, at a walk we did in a botanical gardens. It was a fun day, and we all enjoyed ourselves very much. It's been a year since we did that, and I would love to do it again.

NOVA Spark Meet up

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Thanks Teresa for sending the pic with all of us! I edited to add it :-)

I had a great time today meeting you all! The company and conversation was great! It was fun to see those I'd met before and great to meet those of you I hadn't. We definitely need to do this on a regular basis. I hope next time those that didn't make it can be there.

I'll see a lot of you in 3 weeks at our Susan G Komen 5K. I can't believe we are going to surpass our goal of raising $2000! You all have done an awesome job!

Big Spark weekend coming up

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

I am really looking forward to this weekend! On Saturday, a group of Northern Virginia Sparker's are meeting. I've met several of them before and am looking forward to seeing them again and to meeting the others for the first time. A lot of us are running (walking) together at the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure on the National Mall in DC on June 5th. They are a great group of people and I really enjoy chatting on our board with them each day. I've learned a lot about running from them and will one day hopefully be a runner right along with them.

Sunday is our mini Ruby Lite convention where I am going to Annapolis, MD and meeting some of my team mates from my Rootin' for Ruby team! I am so excited to go. There will be Sparkpixie, Lorikb, Termitemom, Chopola, Golucygo and Sapphiremind. We have so much fun as a team, especially during team challenges and I am just incredibly excited to meet them in person and spend the day with them. One of them is a co-worker so I already know her, LOL, but am glad she is going and hope she finds the time to be more involved with the team. I know she would really enjoy it! And Lori is coming from Indiana! Only a few more days til the weekend....can you tell I'm excited? LOL

Mother's Day Weekend

Sunday, May 09, 2010

I had a great Mother's Day weekend! Yesterday was a massage and manicure/pedicure with gift certificates from my kids. I had never been to a spa before and it was enjoyable.

Today was lunch at Ruby Tuesday where the kids gave me a beautiful Mother's Ring with all 4 of their birthstones surrounded by little diamonds (my birthstone). Since I've lost weight it's big, but I just put a ring guard on it until I'm done losing weight...then I will resize it. It's beautiful and I will treasure wearing it every day :-)

My Mom lives in NC so we couldn't spend the day together. I miss having her closer by, but hopefully she will be closer again soon (anyone want to buy her house? LOL). Maybe by next year we can all spend the day together. She is on SP so we get to have fun on our Rootin' for Ruby team. This is us:

I love you Mom! Happy Mother's Day!!

A relaxing day

Saturday, May 08, 2010

I had a very enjoyable and relaxing day. My son and his gf gave me a gift certificate for a manicure and pedicure and I used it today. My daughters gave me a 1 hour massage certificate and I also used that today. Both were really nice. The massage had me so relaxed I dozed off at several times. I had to force myself to wake up because I didn't want to sleep through it and miss the massage!

Tomorrow we are doing a Mother-Daughter Mother's Day walk at a local park and I'm really looking forward to that!
