Thank you!
(You have to cut and paste because my link isn't working.)
Check out the link above for a video that honors all of the men and women who have served this country for our freedom. I am SO PROUD that my husband is a veteran from the Iraqi war. Isn't he cute! (This pic was taken on top of one of Saddam's Presidential Palaces)

If you know someone who has served or is serving our country,(especially if it is a family member) please make sure to thank them today! We honor your memory & sacrifice today!

Oh what a view!

Today we went for a hike in torrey pines state park. It is my favorite hike in SD because the views are so AMAZINGLY beautius (yes that is a made up word). If you live in SD or ever visit, I would say to visit this location. Here are a few pics from the day. We even got to stop & take a pic of the cutest litte bunny!

I rented Bridewars the other night, and since then have watched it at least 3 more times. When I saw the trailer, it wasn't a movie that I wanted to see. It reminded me of Bridezilla. It would be one of the movies that would fall under the "renter" cateogries. To my surprise this movie chokes me up EVERY time I watch it. Who would have thought that a cheezy chick flick would do that. So in celebration of your BFF's go check out bridewars and make sure your friends know how much you appreciate them! We all know that guys will be guys (as amazing as they are at times), but you will always have your girlfriends!

This weekend....

Seems as though everywhere I turn I read or hear about how many people are excited about the three day weekend. (I am included) We were going to go to Palm Springs for a few days and then I started to feel sick, so instead we are just going to stay home and relax. So wherever your plans take you for this weekend, ENJOY!!

I have lost 5 inches in my hips and 2 inches in my waist! I wasn't doing it to lose weight, I just wanted to be a bit more active and be accountable to someone! Thanks Diana!!

The BEST Gardener

My Mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
that gave my life it's start.
She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self-esteem...
And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough-
But not too much because she knew
I'd need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong-
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.
I am my Mother's garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me

Happy Mothers Day Mom! I love you!

Not Me! Monday

I thought this would be fun to do! If you so feel inclined check out to see the 800+ other bloggers who have also participated! It is quite cathartic, just give it a try!

I would never wrestle with my husband and pull my neck muscles! NO Not ME!

I would never cancel my workout with my trainer because I hurt my neck and then eat a klondike bar for dinner! NOOOO not me!

Since I pulled my neck, I would NEVER let my husband clean the whole house while I was at a fundraiser for work, no NOT never!
