I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! We are enjoying the gorgeous weather, hanging out with family and friends! I'm also hoping to fit a little stamping in too, but we'll see.
With school ending and summer quickly approaching we have a lot of changes going on around our house. As much as I can't believe it, Beckett has graduated from pre-school and will be starting kindergarten in the fall and Annabelle is only 2 school days away from kindergarten graduation. I am so sad that my babies are growing up, yet so proud of both of them!
They have a crazy busy summer filled with summer camps, swimming lessons, soccer and lots more!
Besides changes with the kids, I myself have had a lot going on these past several months. Only a few of you know this, but in January I decided it was time for me to get rid of my "pregnancy weight" since my baby was turning 5 years old. Since mid January I have been following a strict diet and walking on the treadmill and have managed to lose 56 pounds. It has been a long, hard road but I'm proud of my accomplishment. I also managed to lower my cholesterol by 48 points which for me is a big deal. I have had high cholesterol for most of my adult life. I am finally considered a normal healthy weight and my cholesterol is in the normal range! Woohoo!
Unfortunately, I have also been dealing with a thyroid issue for the past 6 months which has made me absolutely miserable. This is an ongoing issue that I pray gets resolved soon. If any of you are thyroid experts or are married to one I'd love to hear from you. Can you tell I'm getting desperate, LOL?
I also wanted to post a little bit about some changes you are going to see here on my blog in the upcoming weeks. First off, you may have noticed that I have moved a couple company names into the "past design teams" list on my side bar. Yesterday was my last official post as part of the Susana's Custom Art and Card Design design team and Monday will be my last official post as part of the Little Paper Shop design team. I am going to try and play along with the LPS Monday challenges and the SCACD TIOT challenges but it won't be a regular thing every week for me anymore. I have been truly honored to a part of both of these teams.
I do have some super exciting things coming up in the future (more on that in the next few weeks) but for the next month or so you might not see as many posts from me.
Change is good, right?
I hope you all have a terrific weekend! Be sure to check back here on Monday for my last LPS Monday challenge as part of the LPS dt. We have an awesome sketch for you that you won't want to miss!
