I'm Still Here

I'm still here! And I haven't fallen off the wagon! :) A lot has happened since I posted last. I started a new job this month. I am the new K4 teacher at Aldersgate UM Church Preschool. It is so different from what I've done before, but I think I will like it. The kids don't start there until the 25th. Speaking of starting school, my two boys started today. My younger son is a seventh grader! My older son is a SENIOR! Hope this year doesn't go by too fast. :(

I turned 50...yep, the BIG 5...0! I had an awesome birthday! My hubby took me out to eat at a wonderful Italian Restaurant, called Travinia. Then the following weekend, he threw me a 50th birthday cook-out, complete with burgers, hot dogs, birthday cake and ice cream! Oh, and don't forget the swimming and the wonderful friends who showed up to celebrate with me! In case you are wondering...YES, I did eat the birthday cake, the hamburgers, the hot dogs, and the ice cream. I gained less than 2 pounds over the weekend, but I got it right back off! So happy about that!

 I even ate well on vacation. In July, we went to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island, Tampa, Florida. We stayed in St. Petersburg where we enjoyed St. Pete's Beach too. We all had a great time and enjoyed different aspects of the trip. I enjoyed the beautiful beach and not having to cook! The boys enjoyed all the roller coasters, and my hubby, well...he enjoyed just being away from work with the family! 

I have been eating well lately. I LOVE veggies in season. I have consumed many tomatoes, peaches, and watermelon! :) And ya know what? I've lost 36 pounds!  So happy about that!

Oh....before I sign off, I just have to share my son's amazing senior pictures...or at least a couple of them. What a bittersweet time of life! I am so proud of him, yet so sad that he will only be with us a little while longer! :(

Pressing on!
