This time last year

Wow oh wow I woke up late....TIRED from Volleyball. I will be selecting the winner of the I Declare Charms Giveaway at 5:00 tonight so you still have time to enter. I am overjoyed with PRIDE for all the amazing race efforts this weekend.. I even found out that my Cousin Tina ran her first Marathon....funny I didn't even know she is a runner...must find out MORE...

Since I have zero time to Blog I thought you might like the photos below.. These were taken exactly a year ago. I had one race (5K) in my adult life under my belt. I ran with co-workers to drop the baby weight. Funny how a year can change things..

The Little Studs have grown too.. We need to go back to this park it is the PERFECT place to take Fall photos.
And on 10/18/08 I was BLESSED to be a Bridesmaid in Katie and Drew's Wedding. We were SPOILED with manicures, pedicures, hair, makeup, limo rides, amazing flowers and dresses. I felt like a princess, which was a GREAT confidence booster during my weight loss journey. Now 20 pounds lighter that dress does not fit at all.. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my buddies.


Have a HAPPY MONDAY!!
I will be back to announce the winner tonight..

Aww! Those are gorgeous pictures! What a wedding day! I would love to pampered like that!

It is amazing how much can change in one year. We sound like we were on the exact same schedules (only you beat me to the marathon!) and it's just crazy how far we've come!

You should be so proud of yourself!
