Good Friend

I've had this set for a long time and have never used the bird in it, so I thought it was about time I did something with him! Isn't he cute?! I saw this layout on SCS and just had to CASE it. I did change the colors and pattern paper completely from the original. I love how this turned out! I used some retired DSP from this past Sale-A-Bration (big surprise, I can't remember the name of it!! LOL!) I also used the phrase from the stamp set Cheep Talk. It fits perfects around the head of the bird!

Sorry its been 12 days since my last post (as Steve pointed out in the last comment section!). I've been super duper busy with me and Angie's Healthy Habits group that we've started up. It meets every Tuesday and there is a lot of prep work into each meeting, even though we aren't the ones presenting! And, 7 days creeps up on you FAST!!! We have a total of 70 super women signed up and coming to the meetings. This past Tuesday was our 2nd meeting (out of 12 weeks) and everyone lost weight!!! Isn't that amazing?!?!? We had so many women take us up on our first Weekly Challenge of cutting diet sodas out and drinking more water. Our new Weekly Challenge is to get in at least 3 days of excercise. I have one down from doing the workout offered after each meeting with a personal trainer we have come in, and WOWZA am I feeling it today! I don't think my thighs have ever ached this bad! LOL!!

The weekly meetings and I'm back at work now....3rd week back since my medical leave was up due to my back surgery. Every evening I come home and my back pretty much aches. Nothing I can't handle so far. It's just something I'm going to have to get used to, I think.

Steve and I and some friends are going on a bike ride on Saturday and I can't wait to get back out there on the bike! I did 20 miles a couple of weekends ago and it felt FANTASTIC!! The Strassenfest Bike Ride is coming up next weekend....21 miles. Bring it on!!

But you forgot to mention how much time you've been spending farming lately too. ;-)

HAHA, Steve outted you!!

I am gonna be heavier this next week. Damn Leg Boot!

(NOTE: That is my excuse and I am sticking to it. It has nothing to do with my cycle or the fact that I have a busy (shhh!!) weekend coming up WINK WINK)

I love the group, keep up the awesome work!
