Fun Weekend!

Monday, January 14, 2013

Went to 5th birthay party of one of Stephanie's Matron of Honor's sons Saturday. Took Mom with me and she enjoyed all the children and talking to another grandmother. They batted balloons back and forth with the kids.

Went to church and then to bridal expo with 3 of Stephanie's bridesmatrons (?) is there such a word. We had a wonderful time and then went to dinner afterwards.

Son and hubby did a road rally together and had fun! They came in 5th place and enjoyed themselves. Better than we do sometimes.

Starting to sink in what all is ahead of us. Woke up at 12:30 and couldn't go back to sleep, Tried to read for awhile and finally at 4 am gave up and decided to do some catch up here on SparkPeople.

Going to daughters Jan 26 for a 4 day weekend and trying on wedding dresses. Daughter had engagement pictures taken yesterday afternoon. Can't wait to see them. So much fun and excitement going on. Know I'm going to be dragging this week if I can't get some sleep. No help from the power surges going on...hot...cold...comfortable...then hot...cold etc. Really been hitting my hard recently. No let up. Guess I need to get checked out.

Enjoyed some time with son and daughter in law when we got home. The wedding should be a fun time. Everyone gets along and they are all dear friends of hers or future family so I envision a fun time had by all. A celebration! A joining together of more families!

Now if I can just loose some more weight. The four of us were at the bridal fashion show and someone took a picture of us and I look huge. How to get down to a healthier size....keep working and change things up a little. I know I just need to stay focused....

Off to start a great week...

    Sounds like a great week-end and I think you have one Matron of honor and the rest are considered bridesmaids but I could be wrong since I have not been to a wedding recently.
I hope this celebration goes really well since right now you are all friends. I will pray that nothing stands in the way of this being the wonderful moment for you daughter and future son-in-law.
May you have peace so you can sleep

    Kathleen maybe you should join a mothers of the bride group..lol.. Aren't there bridge forums on here? Glad you enjoyed your weekend and most likely you were just wound up about it and can't sleep because of that. Enjoy your Monday. emoticon Donna

    Wedding planning fun is in the air! It will be a busy time. Weddings can be a fitness motivator. Enjoy this time.

Fabulous Friday!

Friday, January 11, 2013

Here we are once again at Fabulous Friday!

Have made it through another week. Weekends seem to fly by so quickly.

Raining today...raining instead of snow I guess. Supposed to be in the 60's which seems quite unusual for January weather around here.

Slowly getting back into routine. Been trying to get to Curves in the evening but Mom won't go and am tired and turn the car towards home.

Off to make it a great day!

  Fridays have a tendency to be a relief and sort of a let-down from work. It is nice when someone wants to go with you to Curves but I do understand. Have a great week-end!

Terrific Thursday

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Getting close to the weekend! Making it through another week.

I am so looking forward to my trip to be with my daughter...even if for a short weekend. I just long to get away from work.

Snow is melting. Supposed to be unusually warm the end of this week.

Still getting Christmas slowly packed up. Maybe this weekend will get it all packed up.

Going to one of the bridesmaid's son's birthday party Saturday and then 3 of the bridesmaids and I are going to bridal show Sunday afternoon. Will be fun to see what is new out there and spend time together.

Every day I go with a good attitude and then the struggles of work hit me and it's hard to keep that good attitude. Working with the public really wears me down.

Off to start a great day!

    Be of good courage, Kathleen. As far as the public, remember they too seek Him, and you may be the only glimpse they see today!

    Sounds like you are doing some fun things. Good for you. I can related about the struggles of working for the public. It can be very demanding. Chin up Kathleen we can do this... Have a super Thursday. emoticon Donna

Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

Had early morning meeting so didn't get on the computer.

Booked a flight to Florida for a long weekend Jan 25 - 28. Daughter has appointments to try on wedding dresses. Looking forward to time together...I know it's been so long huh! (just left Jan 1) but will be exciting to see her try on dresses. Having been on the grooms side I want to make sure we reach out to the grooms side also. Daughter is including his Mom and Step-Mom as they all get along to go with us when she tries on dresses. Did that with daughter in law and was such a special time. Kinda gets everyone involved in the process and seem more real. I remember when she tried on "the dress" and asked her mom what she thought of that dress and her mom and sister were crying...it was "the dress". It was gorgeous. Wonder if we'll get that experience?

Exciting things in store this year. EJ is a great guy. Couldn't ask for a better future son in law.

Off to make it a great day!

    Hope you had a great day at work and you are right what a special time this is for all of you and if you are getting a great son-in-law that's even a bigger plus. May their union be filled with much joy. Donna

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Had a nice dinner out with hubby last night for our anniversary!

Planning to get back to Curves tonight after work. Having neck and shoulder issues from being on a keyboard all day. I think when I was going to Curves more regularly it helped relieve some neck and shoulder tension. Just been so busy with the holidays I didn't carve time out for it. Not sure if I'll take Mom or not yet.

Off to make it a great day!

  The holidays are busy for us all. You might go to Curves by yourself first, and next time take Mom.

    Good morning Kathleen. If you're like me (and we sound a lot alike) you get sore when you don't move. Meaning of course exercise. WooHoo....go to the gym the first couple times by yourself, then start taking mom back with you... emoticon Donna
