I'm in Ballwin. In the big scheme of things, we're practically neighbors!
I'm out your way quite a bit. My family lives out there. I have two nephews at Marquette and one at Selvedge.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the day.

Jenny, great planning! Fresh produce is wonderful this time of year. Congrats for getting back on track.

This is what I found and now own (at 80% discount!)....fits beautifully, covers the knees a smidge, has nice 3/4 length sleeves to handle bat wings....

Beautiful, classy dress! Glad that you had fun.

Yesterday, not only did it button up easily, it is too big! I can grab a handful of extra shirt!
Yay!

Happy Birthday! You are giving yourself a wonderful gift.

Happy Birthday!

Just think what a great thing you are teaching your kids - it's about the celebrating the birthday, not the food! congrats to you!

LOL -- I can't wait to wear stuff like that -- for the FIRST time. I've never been that small but that dress is inspiring. Soooo lovely! Please post a pic if you can when you're all done up...

First of all I personally have been 39 several times myself -- it's a great age to be! My kids made me an IP cake out of the chocolate pancake mix and iced it with a RTD pudding. We all loved the 'space cake' so there is a tidbit for other birthday go-ers... you can have your cake and eat it too!

Ruth -- we're typing simultaneously again... and now using the same smileys... I hear "twilight" music in the background (and I mean the Twilight ZONE not the new vampire kind!) LOL

... Hope I get to LOOK as good as you since we're on the same IP wavelength so often....

Too funny! Amazing how that happens. And I'll bet you look better than me when you get to goal, I'm jealous of your height - always wanted to be 5'6". Just think it's a really nice height for a woman. Darn genes.

Well I never appreciated my height before so thank you for the compliment. My MIL is under 5' and so is a good friend from high school. I know it's frustrating for them to buy clothes. Even the capris are too long. Sometimes we don't appreciate our blessings so for tonight, I'm thankful to be a 5'6"-- 39 again woman who is workin' out her willpower muscle to get that in shape!

Posting to say howdy. Today was great regardless of non-stop meetings. Hubby made me a surprise salad for lunch, with all sorts of yummy veggies in there. I lost a few pounds on my WI and I got my ticker ticking. WF thousand island is a winner.

Hoooly moly. I just discovered that WF makes a Super Fruit Balsamic Vinaigrette.

My IP life may be complete.
