Sounds like you've got the weekend pretty much all mapped out. Gonna do the touristy things with your Edmontonian friend?

It's not just you! Seems like it was just yesterday that the kids started school and yesterday DD14 had her end of school party.

I am so excited and more motivated than ever! I will give you the new number on the 11th but just had to share!

Hey, congrats! Keep up the good work!

I am so glad to hear about your mom!! Praying for her!

Yay for your weight loss! It is always so encouraging to see those numbers going down! I hope you have a fantastic time with your friends, sounds like a great weekend to me!!

HAPPY CANADA DAY FRIEND!

HOPE YOU CAN ENJOY THE DAY DESPITE THE WEATHER!

I'm off to the States today for some shopping...maybe even a visit to the Disney Store!

We will be back to go downtown for the big fireworks show tonight!

I know it's not very patriotic to go today but I have been so busy the last few weeks that today is the only one that works. So no "flames" please.

Very excitting for you to be going next month!!! Time is flying by!

Flames? No way! What could be more Canadian than going to the States for shopping?

Happy Canada Day all!

Yes I booked Magical Express today after an annoying...I mean a friendly, reminder call from my sister

I'm excited my mom's been accepted for the valvuloplasty procedure but cautiously optimistic. She's pretty weak and pretty sick and alot can go wrong. Not trying to be the pessimist just realistic.

We are all hoping this Disney trip will happen but we did tell the girls if something happens to their Nana the trip may not happen. Just wanted to be sure they were prepared.

Speaking of our girls, they received excellent report cards yesterday.

Snow White's teacher had everyone in her class write something they liked about each member of the class and then she printed it out on beautiful paper with her name on the top. It was so wonderful, what a self esteem builder and a great keepsake she really was an amazing teacher.

Happy Canada Day everyone!

Happy Canada Day, Queen and Jasmine.

Seven weeks? Yes, I would say your time is flying by quick. So happy for you.

And the news on your mom is so great. Will keep prayers coming and fingers crossed.

So glad to hear good news about your mom! We'll be praying that all continues to go well for her

I can't believe our trips are next month now! I went online and paid ours off this morning

Congratulations on the weight loss! That's wonderful! Keep up the good work!

Happy Canada Day. Enjoy your holiday weekend

Happy Canada Day to everyone, hopefully everybody's enjoying the day! It's nice that everyone is feeling cautiously optimistic about your mom's procedure-as scary as it is, if surgery is necessary there is nothing to do but cross your fingers and hope for the best. I hope everything works out wonderfully for her.
for 4.6 pounds! You must really be putting a lot of work in to get those results.
I wonder if everyone else's kids were as sad as ours were about school ending. The long faces we had around our house on the last day! I think something must be wrong with the children nowadays.

I know now and I don't consider Houlton a shopping mecca.

Yay for your trip being so close, and I will continue to keep the situation with your mother in my prayers.

Your shopping day in the States sounds like a lot of fun, it must be nice to be that close to the border.

Thanks Shelley!! This is the most motivated I have ever been...I just wish it had kicked in a few months ago so I could have been at my goal weight by the time we left but oh well...I'll take what I get
