Well, I hope this doesn't get too wordy... I can do that !
As some of you know, our oldest daughter and her bf came home last nite for my DH bday today. She gave us our Valentine card before we sat down to dinner.
And sprang a HUGE one on us!
They are pregnant and want to get married in APRIL (of 2014!!!) and the after gathering at our house!!!! Aaahhh
Shock, tears, happiness, WOW!
They'll have a BIG reception/party next summer... after she's had the baby!
Baby Due Sept 25th!
Wow this is so surreal.
Brooke, our daughter, is 29 and has been with her BF for 5 years come this June.
She works full time and is also going for her Masters!
She has been carrying quite a load for the last couple weeks!
She lives in IN and we live in IL. She wanted to tell us in person. So between work, school, finding out she's pregnant, worries galore, etc - she's been holding a lot on her shoulders! :(
Now, we step in to help rescue ;-) with the planning and etc...
and help relieve some stress for her!
We are going to cancel our AZ trip... feel kinda funny/guilty leaving this soon after she just told us when there's so much planning and etc to do...
and save that money to give towards the wedding...
AND that "time off from work" (as I don't have that much time off left) for the wedding ..
in APRIL, aaahhh
and the baby!
I still have a little shock, but excitement is setting in!
I've been wanting to be a grandma for a couple years now... my oldest 2 kids are 31 and 29
Well, that's a VERY LONG NIGHT summed up in a very short blog! ;-)
Thank you all for letting me share this HUGE news and for taking the time to read it :)
and YES, now I really have to be true to myself and get some of the weight off before April... aaahhhh ;-)

Okay... well, I got on the scale this morning;
and NOT much to my surprise,
it went the Opposite Direction of the direction that I bought the scale to go in, lol
But! to my surprise - I was NOT all bummed and upset, letting it ruin my morning (like it has in the past)! And, I credit that mostly to..........YOU!
I know where I am messing up ... my horrible night time eating (dinner and after)!
I am going to work on this!
We leave for Arizona in 9 days.... I was supposed to have lost another 10 by departure date, and as of now I've gained 2 lbs instead....
however, I'm thinking positive and hoping that by Feb 20th, not only will those 2 lbs be gone, but - maybeeeeee another pound or two??
On another note - but still in AZ mode
I'm even taking my laptop with me this year (to AZ) mainly so I can keep up with SparkPeople; probably not as often as I do now, but at least I won't have to go a week without ALL of YOU and SP
for taking time to read my blog
Have a Fun & Fit day today friends

I had my annual cardiologist appt this morning....
always get a tad nervous for this one
However, other than my weight, I had a reallllly good report!
My EKG was good and normal;
my heart sounded good and regular;
my cholesterol was good;
and ALL my blood work came back with numbers in the range they are supposed to be!
I was very pleased, and just wanted to share this great news with my friends
Now, I really and truly have to get serious and lose weight!
This has to be my year!
And I do believe that with the help, support, and encouragement of all my amazing SP friends ~
all for your special friendship!
And remember, this IS our year :)
Have a Happy Day!
Life is Good!
God is Good!

I love that saying
And I just wanted to share it today,
and remind people that if you've had a bad day,
a bad week,
or even an unsuccessful beginning to the new year....
TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
Start Over Today
........ Just Be Thankful for Today!
Each day is truly a gift (and the first day of the rest of your life),
it is not someting we have earned, or are entitled to,
or should take for granted.
Each Day is Truly a Gift :)
What we do with it , is up to us!
Make the most of your day today -
Be Grateful for it :)
Happy Day everyone!

I received a goodie today :)
but was NOT expecting the note attached to it :(
A spark friend is leaving SP,
she reached her goal and is now leaving.
I was shocked!
Definitely wasn't expecting that note!
I couldn't believe the sadness I felt!
I wasn't as "close" with her as I am several other SP friends,
I didn't "communicate" with her as often....
but still, I was very sad!
It's amazing the friendships/camaraderie, and support
you develop with your new friends...
and I've only been here since August!
Don't any more of you leave!!!
