My daughter an author, makes me an illustrator....

My daughter, Lauren, decided she would take her writing to another level and write a baby book for her very best friend and soul sister, Tiffany. Tiffany is expecting her first baby the middle of July and we are all just thrilled. Lauren is an incredible blogger ( so writing a book seemed like an easy task! So with her becoming a children's author, I became an illustrator.
Our joint effo, "Maybe Milo", was born and our book was a hit with Tiffany and her sweet husband David. Their precious bundle of joy will be named Milo, a long-standing family name. We ordered 4 books, one for Tiff, one for the author, the illustrator and the grandma/mom of the 2 who did the book. She likes to brag on us, so thought we'd give her something tangible with which to brag.

January ..... Changes

Taylor heading to school and REALLY leaving Clovis to make changes in his life and start making decisions and planning for the future. It's a good thing. I think it's scary for him and a parent never wants to see their child uncomfortable, and on the other hand, as Uncle Buck used to say "No pain, no gain". Now it's time for Taylor to have some gain and jump ahead into the real world.....So far, lots of obstacles--no job, no money, which classes to take, room mate issues...this to shall come to pass (as my mama always says...) and God will provide, He always does.

And then there is me................

My changes? I got a Body Bugg for Christmas. My little beauty will keep a
ccount of my daily calorie burn. I enter the foods/calories i consume into the program on the computer and plug my Bugg into the computer to download.
At the end of the day---VOILA! did i burn more than i consumed? so far, it's been 7 days, and it's been a great reminder on my left arm to keep the calorie intake low. The scale is showing progress! Hallelujah! Weight is coming off a little at a time... I should meet my goal in June of this year. Stay tuned for weekly updates!
