The Dreaded "D" word

This is a picture of Luiza took of me at the cottage this past weekend, not bad for a little girl who could barely hold the camera up.

OK, well I officially started my diet today. (see I told you it was the dreaded "D" word. ) I was doing so good a few months back, but then I through my back out, and I never got back on track. Bad Sarah, bad, bad Sarah. But now I am ready to go for it again. I love the show Biggest Looser, and since it started last night, I am so excited to be "dieting" right along with them. I figured if I put it out there in blog land that this is what I was doing, I would have a more people to be accountable too. If any of you out there would like to join in the weight loss crusade with me, please do. We can do it together, exchange healthy recipes, possibly meet as a group for a walk or bike ride, encourage each other and be each other's alli's. I think it would be fun, and being accountable to others is a great way to stay motivated.

OK, enough about that, let's talk about something FUN!!! How about scrapbooking? I'm putting this out here as a reminder for those of you that ignore your emails, this Friday is scrapbooking at the Salvation Army, please let me know if you will be able to attend. Also, I am taking "reservations" if you will for the Scrapbooking Retreat, Oct. 19th & 20th. (marcie, I know you are reading better come) It is going to be a very relaxing, enjoyable, productive, memorable, and exciting weekend. I hope that all will be able to attend. Invite a friend, or bring a family member, but what ever you do, do not miss out on this. There are fun things planned for the weekend, but there is still PLENTY of time to accomplish projects and layouts gallore. Sign up is going on right now, if you need more details please email and I will answer all your little questions.

I also wanted to draw your attention to a new link I added to my "Favorite Blogs" section to the left...My friend Niki Bakeman is the most AMAZING photographer I have come across. Her eye for design is amazing, and enthusiasm is contagious. If you want beautiful pictures of your family, your kids, you alone, your pets, whatever, than go here. I'm telling you you will not be disappointed. When Luiza and I had our pictures taken we went to the gardens of Cranbrook. Holy Smoke. Amazing.

Well I think that is all for today. Talk to you tomorrow.
