Thank you!

To everyone who made an Inspiration post, left a comment or just visited the Inspiration Party!



You guys are the best!

So let's do it again!

You have a whole month to get ready for it.

I will put up the post on Monday May 31st.

Okay???

Now as for this week....

Get your cereal boxes ready

Don't get rid of those dandelions

And prepare yourself for more boring pics of my house!

Intrigued?

Well I guess you will have to come and see....

In the meantime, I have something else to celebrate. I haven't done as great as Lori, but I have managed to keep those nasty 7 lbs off. It feels so good! All I heard this weekend was "MOM! Pull up your pants your butt is showing!" But showing in a good way. Not the "I have on pants 2 sizes too small and my buttocks are trying everything to escape" way. So now I am off to go get some britches that will cover my butt. Or a belt. Piece of rope. Maybe a couple really large safety pins?

Something....

Your wonderful idea of an inspriational meme was a smashing success! Thank you so much. Now, I am so happy that you are loosing weight, but don't stop cooking!
I can't wait to see what this next post is about!

congrats to you on needing new britches! I just hope you won't wear them like some of the male students at the High School...I need to remind them all day to pull up their pants! ;)

As for the dandylions...I better tell hubby to hold off on spraying them again (I like to pluck them out of the earth the old fashioned way)...but there are sooooo many at this new place! :)

Congrats on your weight loss Maggie ~ it's a long hard crawl but it is so worth it in the end!! I cannot wait to see what you have up your sleeve now. xo

Hello
Thanks for your sweet message about my husbands work.
Mmmmm my shop doesn't convert pounds to US dollars I'm afraid, you would have to double check with an online converter for the price but Paypal does convert your final payment to US dollars I think at the checkout stage ~ all very complicated! Lol!
love
Alison

Hip-hip-hooray on the loose britches...what a great feeling that I have not had for awhile...I need to forget to eat once in awhile..grrrr
I love, Love, LOVE that Lucy and Desi have been an intriguing part of your life...I'll bet you and your hubby are just as they have portrayed.
SO CUTE!
Hmmm, Dandelion Wine? in the making?

Congrats! I'm failing miserably. Trying to go back and count points again. Ugh. Let me know your secret!
I think the pan with crayons is a mini loaf pan. Works great!
