Life changes!

I am back! So many have emailed and asked me whether or not I was gonna blog again and the answer is Yes! I haven't in so long and while I am still cross stitching, I just didn't blog about it! Certain things happened over the summer and I was hurt by a friend that I didn't see coming. But I've decided that I know who my real friends are and I'm blessed that I have the ones I do have.

Summer came and went way to quickly! School is back in progress and I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving break in 2 weeks! I know, Thanksgiving already!?!

My cross stitch group The Hooty Girls are still meeting! We just meet at the IHOP in Buford! We have a wonderful time eating wonderful food and then we stitch for 3 hours! We have a wonderful waitress Jenna and they have welcomed us with open arms! Thank you to IHOP!

I am proud to say that I have lost 73 pounds so far! I'd love to lose 10 more, but with the holidays coming and all the yummy goodness coming up, I'll be happy to stay the same till the new year! Exercise has become my personal outlet for me! I still love to eat, but I eat less now and most times I can't even finish my food. The not so happy side effects of weight loss are the excess skin and flab. :( If I win the lottery, I will have a tummy tuck and a thigh tuck! Plus new boobs! hahahaha

I am starting on Christmas ornaments this week for family and friends! So I hope to post pictures after Tuesday night stitch in!
Well, that's all for tonight! I'm gonna check out y'alls blogs, as I have been a naughty girl and haven't kept up with everyone!

Donna, you've always been a gorgeous woman, but you are positively glowing! I've been a bad blogger too. And I could use your awesome attitude with weight loss. I want to change my life, and this is what I want to start with! I'm going to email you!

You look amazing. I have been following your journey on FB and girl, you look wonderful! Oh, I am so glad that you have started blogging again. I have missed reading your posts - about your stitching and your family. I hope they are all doing well. I look forward to seeing what you have been working on when you get a chance to show and tell!

Take care...and welcome back to blog land!
