The journey...

Life is in the journey, not the destination, so do what you can and take it one day at a time. Go slow, do it right, and make your changes permanent — then help out others who are where you were.

Mom (34 lost) & Dad (136 lost) on Carribean cruise 2009
From my previous post I mentioned that I would post pics of Mom & Dad, so this post is simply for that matter. Yea, they look great don't they. :)
Dad took 1st place in Herbalife competition rewarding $1500 towards a trip for two anywhere.
Mom took 1st place in the work competition she initiated which paid for a room upgrade and extra expenses.
Speaking of, I orchestratred a competition at my job which is now up to 24 participants. I'm so excited about everyone's enthusiasm for the competition. I couldn't weed through all my emails before the end of my work-day due to the high volume of Competition response and questions I was receiving. It'll be a tough road though...that's a long extension from my original end date. :(

Wowza!!!! Look at them!!!!

So cool for the Royals to do that! I am going to write them and tell them thank you.

I wish we could go but we just decided to do a "no spend" month. Which means nothing extra the month of June. We are writing out $1,000 worth of check to send kids to camp tomorrow so we decided we need to stop spending and only buy necessities in June!!!

It's crazy. We will see how we do. I will be blogging about it!!

Anyway...Jennifer told me you had the app for Biggest Loser...GIRL - DO IT!!! DO IT!!!! DO IT!!!! Seriously, I want to see a post about how you submitted your application.

Love,
