#267 This house is taking all of my time!

 I just love this picture that my daughter posted to her friends showing that we had updated our home

What a difference though...right?
We got a new roof, repainted the place and a new front door!

The front door has to be my favorite! I love the dark wood and I think it just looks so nice on our newly painted house. 

I wanted you to know that I'm still around
Still doing Weight Watchers - down 44 lbs
Still doing Stampin' Up! - I just don't have as much time recently for it. 
Started doing Younique makeup again - I just love the discount!
Still spending lots of time with my 
grandbaby Brooklyn :) 

She's always the best part of any day :) 

Tell me what you're still doing and what the best part of your day is :)

#265 Weight Watchers continues!!

 Yes!! It continues!!!

I'm pretty proud of myself for continuing this journey for over 11 weeks now. I am down 28lbs and I don't think I'll be stopping any time soon :) 

I've even been able to enjoy a couple birthdays and some fun get togethers!

Here is my beautiful family while we enjoyed a birthday dinner for my daughter, Sara, down on the Vancouver Waterfront. 

Cheers to eating healthy and enjoying myself too!

I've earned my 5lb, 10lb, 15lb, 20lb, and 25lb charm from Weight Watchers. 

Working on the 30lb charm that I hope I'll earn by Friday!!!

Then it's time to celebrate my Birthday!!!

Sweet as a Peach!

Too cute!

The Stampin' Up! bundle called "Sweet as a Peach" is perfect for this time of year. It is on back order today, but only by a week for the stamp set and dies, so this is definitely a set you will want to purchase. The entire suite is back ordered until the last week of the month because it has those cute little jam jars!

The Sweet as a Peach Bundle (item# 155823) is just $36.75 and includes the stamp set and dies.

The Sweet as a Peach Suite (item# 155831) is just $57.25 and includes the stamp set, dies, coordinating designer series paper and the mini jam jars!!!

If you didn't catch my facebook live on this adorable card above, make sure you go over to my Facebook page to see it. It's simple and so perfect for the summer.

#263 Wellness Wins


One of my very favorite things about the Weight Watcher plan that I'm on, is the FREE foods. 

The ZERO point foods! 

The purple plan has the most zero foods and that is what has kept me going so far. 

Fruit is zero points.

Veggies are zero points

Brown rice is zero points

Chicken breast is zero points

Potatoes are zero points

This has kept me going!!!

Going so much that I am down 18.4 lbs over the last 6 weeks :) 

I just received my 5lb and my 10lb keychain in the mail. I reached past the 15lb keychain and am hoping to get the 20lb keychain by Friday morning! 
These are called Wellness Wins :) 

These little keychains seem like such a simple little thing and as a 44 year old woman, you'd think they wouldn't be that big of deal. 
But they so are!
Something so small, but it acknowledges the work that I am putting in and I absolutely love it :) 

Weight loss has been a struggle my whole life...and I am hoping this time...I've found something that fits me and my lifestyle. 
Thank you to my best friend who called me out of the blue one evening 6 weeks ago...and said....Wanna try Weight Watchers with me?
Yes! Yes I do!!!!

#261 - I joined Weight Watchers and other reasons to SMILE!

 Doesn't this card just make you want to smile? 

The colors alone make me want to smile :) These are Stampin' Up!'s 2021-2023 new In Colors
The foam adhesive sheets that cut out perfect letters make me want to smile :) 
The half circles that are positioned to look like a wave make me want to smile :) 

And today marks 1 month since my best friend called me up and said, "What do you think about joining Weight Watchers with me?"

Hmmm...I must have been ready.
Today I am down 12 lbs total in the last 4 weeks while doing WW on the purple plan and that makes me smile.
I feel absolutely amazing!
I have a long long way to go, but I seem to be ok with that this time. Fingers crossed, I can keep on keepin' on. 

So I have reason to SMILE :)

I hope you have reason to smile today too!

#260 Happy Mother's Day

 Happy Mother's Day!!!

I hope that you all had a wonderful day, however you like to spend it. 

Some like to be alone doing their own thing

Some like to spend time with their own mother, children, friends, or pets.

However you like to spend your Mother's Day...I hope you were able to do that. 

This year I got to do a little bit of everything. I spent the morning with my mom and my sister and our spouses. I then was able to spend the afternoon with my girls. I also was able to make each of them a little box of birthday cards with a heartfelt note :) 

This adorable paper was a limited time offer with Stampin' Up! and is no longer available, but the stamp set and dies are still available :) 

Click HERE to see the bundle

Stay tuned I have more encouraging news and fun coming :)
