A New Home!

Hi everyone! When I started this blog, I was copying my cousin who was keeping us all updated on her family in Arizona.  I thought it would be fun to blog here and there, show off some pictures of the kiddos and blog about my weight loss adventure. It became so much more than that. … Continue reading

“Little Kicks” or I Dance Like Elaine

“Little Kicks” or I Dance Like Elaine

Dear blog friends, My husband says I can’t dance. He thinks I resemble this: You’ve seen this episode of Seinfeld, right? It’s very possible he might be right.   :-) But it won’t keep me from “backing that thang up”….in private, of course.   Dance parties at my house are the best since my kids have my … Continue reading
