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.

...all dolled up!

haha....DISCLOSURE...keep reading before "gasping" over my opening statement:

"Wow! I'm not used to seeing you with all your clothes on!"

...ah, calm down!

That was the HILARIOUS greeting this morning at our water aerobics luncheon that followed our morning class. It was so much fun and also nice to "see everyone with their clothes on." lol This is a group of ladies who wakes up at the crack of dawn 3-5 days a week to work our tails off (literally) in the water and enjoy one anothers company in our humble state of presentation. :) No makeup, pearls, satin blouses and skirts. No bedazzle (that's for Shauna), bling bling, crimps or curls. We walk in there with our heads held high and it's LOVE IT OUR LEAVE IT BABES! We don't have to "dress to impress," it's "Move it or lose it."

It was neat seeing everyone "all dolled up" and getting to know each other a little more than our limited 1 hour time slot of aerobics (which consists of Shauna yelling - "YOU SHOULD BE TOO OUT OF BREATHE TO STILL BE TALKING! MOVE IT, MOVE IT!!!")

I took a half-day off work and was so glad I was able to attend. We really had a great time!

This was our class picture following aerobics a few weeks ago. (Shauna's 10 year anniversary)Me, Shauna & Julie (Isn't our instructor so stinkin' cute!)

...and this is where it starts goin downhill folks! DESSERT TABLE!!! (keep in mind, we JUST finished working out) SHAUNA - meet dessert. DESSERT - meet Shauna. Key Lime Pie

I am SOOO using this next time I have a LARGE Cherry Coke...or two! :)

The ladies enjoying our salad & dessert party!

EVERYONE was just smiling and having a good time!

Haha - JUDY - now this is one spunky lady. Seriously, I'm 23 (ashamed to say) and this chick can do more than me - hopping in and out of that pool like it's nothing.

"Pose for me." :)

I mean seriously, if you're gonna eat it...might as well eat it with a smile onyour face!

Effie & I sipping Crystal Light Lemonade (mine was mixed w/ Ice Tea)
The wonderful salads & finger foods

Hey - we are more that bathing suits and water dumbells. Everyone looked GREAT!

Verse(s) of the Day:
Romans 13:8-10 (The Message)

Don't run up debts, except for the huge debt of love you owe each other. When you love others, you complete what the law has been after all along. The law code—don't sleep with another person's spouse, don't take someone's life, don't take what isn't yours, don't always be wanting what you don't have, and any other "don't" you can think of—finally adds up to this: Love other people as well as you do yourself. You can't go wrong when you love others. When you add up everything in the law code, the sum total is love.

Judy rocks!!!! I love that pic.

I'm w/Jen - the one of Shauna meeting dessert...too funny. Do you know she makes home made caramel? The kind you melt and put on popcorn? It's amazing. We call it "crack corn" instead of caramel popcorn.

It's good to read your blog. I am so far behind!!!

What a fun post, I want to copy it and put it in my blog for journal purposes, I forgot my camera along with my dress:) You have a way of writing that truly tells the story. It was such a FUN luncheon, and I am sooooo glad you took off work to come. And for all my friends throwing me under the desert bus, i don't recall any of you turning down my treats:) ohhhhhh that key lime pie was a slice of heaven. I think I might of injured a few ladies in class today trying to work that puppy off. You know I love you and you bless my mornings and life more than you will ever can I have the rights to this blog posting for my own????

This is soooo funny to me. I go swimming twice a week and there are all these little old folks that come in for water aerobics right as I am finishing up. They always want me to stay. I really should one day. I just love all of them. They are so funny...they ask me stuff like "Are you a professional swimmer?" Bless them and their pitiful little eyes that deceive them ; ) Seriously, they make me feel so good about myself though. I am gonna go to water aerobics next week!
