LOLLY BEE VERSUS GARDEN ANT--SHE LOOKS LIKE THE WINNER! LOLLY weights 1.35 lbs. She loves the garden and swing as much as I do! We are in LOVE with our little girl!


RYDER ENJOYING THE INDOOR POOL
Granddaughter and Ryder (18 months now) will be here the end of March for the wedding of my oldest Grandson! Ryder will be fitted for his tux and Granddaughter will hopefully fit into her bridesmaid dress. I haven't even shopped for a dress as I hope to lose 40 lbs before the wedding. The wedding has been scheduled for quite a long time. But, true to form, I put off dieting until the last 4 weeks! Think I can do it? I only have to lose 10 pounds a week to reach my goal. Of course, I can't even lose two pounds in six months, but this time will be different. Yeah, that's the ticket. Positive thinking. Or is that called magical thinking?
