Please help me! Here's the story...

A fun little picture blog of my Sunday afternoon...
It just started snowing here about 20 minutes ago. So pretty! I hope it will be a good snow without too much sleet/ice. AR is famous for ice, not snow. Bleh. Here's hoping!
I took body pics today for a challenge I am participating in & also since I started ZUMBA for Wii today. When I compared them side by side, the difference between pics today & pics when I started my last SP goal in August '10 is AMAZING! I feel ... Read more
