I wanted to show you these pictures of my pretty Lily.
She will come in the bathroom with me when I am getting ready in the morning.
Next thing I know she is up on the new cabinet watching me put on makeup.
She seems to be a girly, girl. 

I love her little points of hair on her ears. 
She has lots of names....silly lily....willy eyed lady. 
She has beautiful markings and color. 
That's my gal! The only other girl in the house.

Weigh In Day

We lost none this week and we are thankful we did not gain any.
It was a big weekend with visiting and a baby shower and a birthday and eating out for valentines day.  We watched very carefully and say "just think what we would have eaten had we not been careful". 

We are back on our regular pattern now so check back next week, there should be good news.

Thanks for stopping by!

UPDATE--I was able to pull out a pair of pants from the archives-I don't know how many years it has been since I wore them....possibly 4 or 5.  They are simple black pants so they are not out of date.  Woo Hoo!

Book Review:The Wives Tale by Lori Lansens

This books setting was in Canada about an hour east of Detroit.  What I enjoyed was the mention of the sports team, Tiger and Red Wings that the characters were fans of. 
This book was about a woman who had been married for 25 years.  They were having a little anniversary party get together with their friends and the husband never came home.  The woman was hugely overweight and they had not had an intimate marriage for at least 6 years.  The woman worked part time, had a mother in the nursing home, loved her husband fiercely but had many, many hang-ups and sadness.  She is in her 40's and it is an awakening for her when her husband doesn't come home.  It follows her trail of her search for her husband and herself.  She discovers herself after all those years and realizes what she has been missing. She lost weight because she wasn't hungry anymore, meets new, interesting and very nice people on her trip to California. 
It was an immensely enjoyable book.

Happy 19th Birthday to our Kevin

Today we celebrated his birthday.  We went to his favorite places...A Japanese Steak house and Gander Mountain.  I like to show the age on the pictures so there is no confusion when we look back years from now. 

He looks quite dashing in his new camo robe.  It's just the right fit. 
We love ya Kev!
