Family Pictures






















We were invited to dinner at Bonnie and Caleb's house last week, and had a wonderfully yummy dinner of chicken fettucine alfredo, Greek salad, rye rolls with butter, beets, and broccoli. Griffin loves broccoli. It was all so good! While we were there, Bonnie took pictures of us. I didn't know she was going to do this, but it was a nice surprise! She wants me to put more pictures up with me in them (I'm always the one behind the camera), so here they are! I will consider these my "before" pictures, since I still need to lose about 70 pounds before I'm at my goal weight. But I've lost 15 so far (I lost the 5 pounds I gained back over the holidays), and I'm working out at the gym more regularly now. I like to go after the boys are in bed. The gym is open until 10, so I have plenty of time, and it's not too busy at night. It doesn't keep me awake like I was worried it might. It just makes me even more tired. I love how I feel when I'm done! I don't like getting to that point, but I love being done and feeling so good about myself. That's enough to keep me going back for more.

hehehehe, I was going to comment on the back drop, I like the Caribbean colors...thanks for posing all of you, that was fun!!! But I still want to know what Mike was saying to get you to laugh that hard...I have just a sneaky feeling that it will never be revealed on this PG site - Now if it were Anagela's blog, we might get lucky...to hear the details of that one way conversation ;)

Oh, how I would love to tell what happened to make him say what he did that lead to that pose, but you're right, this is a PG site, if not a G site, so I will leave it up to the imagination! ;)

Hey, Bonnie! What are you trying to say about me and my blog??? :) So maybe my mind is in the gutter sometimes, but I have to find some way to stay sane! I'd say I'm more PG-13!
