MY GRANDDAUGHTER turned the BIG 2 in August..
Here are a few of her...

She is so into lip gloss right now... first she started liking it and would kiss you to get some on her lips... then she got her first little pack for kiddies from her momma:

I gave her some sunkist lip balm in this picture and she is very happy!

She did a little 'jig' coz she was happy:

Here she is with her baby stroller and her 'baby" check out those yellow flip flops!

She got some new little bracelets for kids but this is where she wants to wear them! LOL

Then she got a 'lesson' from my 9 yr old Lane for the guitar:

Here is one of my meals I eat:
Chicken on my little grill I blogged about, salad, potato, and cantalope, YUMMY!

Last here is a sunset taken recently... I love sunsets!

OH OH I almost forgot PUPPIES.... can everybody say awwwwww!

This one is 3 wks old. She is an English Bulldog and her new family has named her Dolly.. (I had nicknamed her Tara)

and last I have never shared one of my French Bulldog puppies with you:

Love you guys, I am here for you!

PS soon I will be posting a blog about my eating plan since I have people asking me....

    LOVE your hair, so pretty. Your granddaughter is adorable and such a girly girl, love that. My goddaughter has said she was a boy since she could talk, and she acts just like a boy, dresses in boys clothes, etc. Those puppies are adorable, oh how I love puppies!!

    Would love to know more about your eating plan, you have had great success, please share when you have the time.

    Love your hair that way. I am so jealous of the grand baby I don't get to see mine she is seven now. The puppies are adorable and yummy dinner. Doing good on everything, just awesome progress, keep up the great work. Sandy

    I agree! You look fantastic and the hair is great too. Skunk? Funny guy, eh? :)

    Dinner looks great. Giving up processed foods & sugar seems to be key for so many people. I'm glad to see it is working so well for you! Just resubscribed to your blog, since my inactivity, I lost all my blog notices...

    Looking forward to the continued success stories!

    You look fantastic! I like the hair (and even the skunk-like color! LOL!!) but the real difference is in your skin-you look healthy and vibrant. emoticon
    I was amazed by your inches lost-it took me 4 weeks to lose 7 inches! emoticon
    You're really doing a terrific job and I'm so glad that you're finding the way to a healthier you! emoticon

    I love the hair! My husband tells me the same thing, but whatever makes us feel good is what we should do. What do men know about hair?

    Great Progress and adorable grand daughter (and puppies) emoticon

    I love the new hair style, my niece just got that done to hers, I've not had a hair cut or style in two years or longer emoticon guess that's on my to do list, was hoping to lose a little more before but....

    Your granddaughter is a doll, loved where she placed the bracelets, little kids are so cute and funny sometimes. Your French Bulldog was adorable, how many do you have and are they all tiny like that?

    I also want to comment on the success of not eating the sugars or processed foods and or white flour products. I know it's hard but it sure helps with the weight loss [doesn't it]? Once I stopped eating the flour products I dropped five lbs over night ..though sadly it can come right back the minute I put it back on the diet menu. emoticon

    I love your hair! The color and style are perfect. Thanks for sharing the photos. The puppy is adorable. Finally, congratulations on the good work you are doing. Your stats are amazing!

    Great work. I find that tracking inches lost really helps to motivate me. The numbers are right there, to prove that you are getting smaller.

    Adorable pictures of granddaughter and pups!

    Wow, you've made a lot of progress! Doesn't it feel good to have tangible results? I like your hair. What really matters, though, is that you like it. Your granddaughter is a real girlie-girl; she's cute. She reminds me of my goddaughter at that age. Keep moving forward, you're doing very well for yourself.
