Whew . . . It's Monday . . . AAAAAH It's Monday :)

Good Morning ~~ Good Morning!! Wow did we have a whirlwind weekend at the Winslow House!!

But first things first . . . How do you like the new blog design? Okay come on how do you like? No really what do you really think does it make my screen look to big ? hahahahaha

My new (wonderful love you) blog friend Caroline let us blog sisters in on a friend of hers that is getting in to blog design. So I've been wanting to change the design of my blog since I started it (practically), to better fit me, but I'm a little challenged in this area, so I was so excited when she gave the address to now another new blog friend of mine; Ashley the blog designer. So I emailed her and she got right back to me and literally in just a few days the new blog design was born. She kept in great contact with me on every phase, even when she ran into a couple of glitches, just to keep me posted. It was such a great experience. So thanks and kudos to Ashely ~~ you rock girl!! So let me know what you think!!

On Friday we had the end-of-year party for our CYC (Clever Youth for Christ) group. It was a lot of fun. It's so great to be able to get together with the kid's (teen-agers ~~ Kid's to me :) and spend time with them away from school. One of my favorite parts was sitting down with the "kid's" for lunch. We fixed Mexican fair and we all sat at my rather large kitchen table (it was handed down to me from my mom and it's getting ready to undergo an overhaul), and just ate and talked and laughed; it was so much fun!! We won't be meeting over the summer (in person), but we will be meeting on our blog: check it out!!

So have you noticed all the links in this post? Yep, I finally figured it out. Boy did I make that harder than it had to be.

Ok, so we have started exercising again. I need to lose about 12 pounds. Any pounds extra on my knees is just not good, and really just need to get healthy again. So this past week I've been trying to eat better and start (slowly) exercising. I got on the scales this morning and have lost 2 pounds. WOOHOO ~~ 10 more to go!!

I love exercising with my boys (husband: Dick and son: Dakota :) Dakota has started training for cross country; he has CC Camp in June and July. So he wants to get a head start. I'm so proud of him. He ran his 5K last night in record time for him!! Way to go son ~~ You Rock!!

So today, I'm off to the market for a little grocery business and then back home and house cleaning (laundry to the ceiling today)!! And then tomorrow, I'm taking mom and Dakota to see Narnia. This is mom's Christmas present to Dakota. How much fun is that? The Grandma and teen hanging out together. Dakota just loves his Grandma so much ~~ I'm not going to see it with them; I am just the driver. (Dick and I plan on going and seeing it this coming weekend ~~ and I don't want to spoil the surprise:)

Okay well I'm sure you're exhausted ~~ whew a long post today the fingers need a rest. I actually have a lot more to post, but it'll have to wait until later ~~ thank goodness right? :) Have a GREAT day!!

Love and Hugs to all,
