Hi Girls I hope your week is going Well
mandydawn77 to this thread! Please feel @ home here w whatever U want to say-share.

Susie, U always have such wonderful weekends w your friends Being in the club house section @ the Cincinnati Reds; I would've made myself b your 'Royal food taster' & had 2 bites tasting everything there w U
Then to go eat/drink German @ Oktoberfest; I'd have to wear my dancing shoes to Polka dance-off my food/drinks...
U just have to share those 2 days w me so I can re-live your special moments & what yummy foods U ate & what U bought

Tori, even though U r visiting other threads, I miss U here Please come back to post... Did U ever get a sewing machine like U wanted to sew new & re-style clothing? Amazon has wonderful buys, I bought a very good Brother machine [I paid $169] w many good features last year for the kids to learn-on & my 8 & 10 yr. olds made: pillowcases/pillows, pajama tops-pants, summer shorts, skirts & used the decorative stitches on clothes. We use new fabric & I also had some clothes w cute prints that I no-longer wear & we re-cut those & recycled that fabric into some cute shorts & skirts for them. If U r unsure about a pattern's fit, sew it first on muslin or larger recycled clothing fabric before using your favorite fabric. It's extremely-Inexpensive @ 69% off $139 for a new machine w great reviews, it won't last long @ this new lower price & Free shipping. My other 4 machines each cost from $200 - $4,000 {my HV embroidery} that I use for personal & my business, plus I have my 2 sergers & a felting machine. I don't quilt, I don't have the time.

We had a fun weekend w the kids & it was 78* so we went to the lake Sunday & swam. Saturday night the baby stayed awake for the entire movie [7pm-8:30pm], he was fascinated w the huge indoor movie screen & all kids there. Well I lost another 3 lbs. without trying, I'm 138 lbs. & I don't want to lose anymore because my clothes will b baggy So I ate a bag of peanut-butter M&M's on Sunday & my weight is stable today. If I loses lbs. again this week I'll eat my snack later @ 8-9pm to gain weight; we all know that we don't eat 3 hours before bedtime or otherwise that snack turns directly into Fat. I'm storing my summer clothes this week, our temps r going into the 60's next week. I pack 7 summer 'clothing sets' w sandals in a garment-bag just in case a unexpected warm trip pops-up for us; I hated looking through all my summer clothing when that happened one winter to us.

Breakfast= chopped apple/brown-sugar topped oatmeal.
Lunch= tortilla chips w fresh diced veggies & peach & pineapple chipotle salsa, topped w spicy Mexican cheeses, no meat.
Snack= 2 oz. walnuts & 1 T. chocolate chips.
Supper= peach & pineapple chipotle salsa on brown rice, topped w bacon (oven-baked, not fried); plus a cucumber salad.
Snack= 2 glasses chocolate milk.

PS: I'm changing my work-out pledge to 20 minutes 6 days, because I don't want to lose more weight. I just want to build my upper-body muscle strength When I gain 5 lbs. I'll add more time.
Thank you for your Prayers PLease share a funny video Dee. "I'm a Gummy Bear" song from the Gummy Bear movie. Also a Minnions video clip that makes you LOL !

I have a Grandma brain
