Mother's Day and A Commitment to Wellness
This is my wonderfully crazy, giving, supportive, beautiful mother. This morning we had a great time over brunch at a little eclectic Greek restaurant called Stoney Knob. My kiddos were there as well as a very good friend and her daughter. The food was fantastic and as is usually the case when we get together, the laughter was plentiful! Here are pics of me and each of my babes.
Not the best photos, but they serve the purpose of documenting this special day! I especially love that I captured Taylor's forgotten shaving skills. His point of view, "no one at school cares what I look like so why should I". While I applaud the concept of not seeking the approval of others, I really do draw the line at being totally unkempt. lol!
The rest of the day was spent running errands, a convertible ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway with Keith and dinner with my friend, Karen. How about you guys? How was your weekend? Do anything fun? Please do tell.
On a scrappy note, I have completed 3 additional layouts...almost. *sigh* I wanted so desperately to participate in three on-line challenges. I worked hard Friday night on each of them but I just ran out of time. Although I didn't meet the challenge deadlines, I still plan to finish the layouts this week. The good news is I sacrificed scrapping time to be with my children. They were home Friday night and given the choice of scrapping memories or making memories...well, I think you all know how that one turns out.
Before I sign off, I want to share a 30-day wellness challenge I'm taking. I need to post it here as a way of being accountable. For all my groaning and moaning over the weight I've gained, I've decided to spend 30 days working to make a better me. Partly for the weight loss, but mostly for the improved health. I want to document my journey over the next 30 days and see where it goes. I'll begin later in the week with a post about what I hope to accomplish and how I plan to get there. I'll be relying on all of you for encouragement and an occasional kick in the pants...I'm sure I'm gonna need it!
I must go to bed now...my pillow is lonely! Hope your Monday is GoodDay! Night-night!
