What a day!

We took off work today and tomorrow for Kevin's birthday.  He is turning the big 40.  We are having some quality time together to celebrate. 

Today we moved around furniture and cleaned up this mess if a place.  Burned a bunch of calories doing so too! 

I am right on track to lose my goal of 40 lbs by Relay.  Check out my healthy snack after our "workout". 

I am so flag I made the decision to get healthy.  I know that is how the Lord wants me to be.

Slim Down for Cancer

Hello Friends!  As you can see on the right side of my blog that I am active with the Relay for Life.  I'm extremely passionate about it.  This year I am doing a special fundraiser.  I am doing a Slim Down for Cancer.  I am asking for pledges of 50 cents per pound I lose.  The more I lose the more money I make!  My goal is to lose 40 pounds by May 30. I would love it if you could support me by making a pledge.  Send me a message at if you would like to pledge.  Check out my ticker below to see my progress!

Science experiment

We spent some quality family time doing a science experiment for our daughter's science fair project.  The experiment is how many lemons you need to light an LED flashlight.  We discovered that 3 will light the bulb, but 4 lit it brighter.  We also tried 5 but it wasn't any different than 4.  This was a neat experiment and allowed us to do an activity together.  I love science and I thoroughly enjoyed spending the time with my family.

I hope she gets a good score.  We won't know until March.  We are in the preliminary stages of experiment and research.
