Holiday Cheer

Well, things have been quite busy around here, with company in and out and just Christmas "hectic-ness" period. Wow. I'm amazed I've had time to cram in a little reading, but I have been anxious to finish the series I am on. I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas. Mine was peachy. I had two early Christmas presents. First, Bonnie flew in to visit for a few days, we shopped, went to Disneyland, and otherwise chilled. Then, my (practically) sister, Candace flew in from MO to stay for a whole week! We also shopped, went to Disneyland, and otherwise chillaxed. Good times. Very good times. My grandparents came in on the 23rd and things have just not slowed down. Until today. Now, I write to you all to bring you good tidings of great joy. OK, it's not THAT great, but I figured I let you in on it, just in case you'd like the option. Starting January 1st, you can go to Disneyland for free on your birthday in 2009! You have to sign up on their website, but I think that's a pretty good deal. If you happen to have season passes, then they give you gift store credit or something like that comparable to a one-day ticket. You should all check it out! I'll be at DL on my birthday in a couple of weeks, working that credit! Woo-hoo! hehehe... I will try to be back around these parts more. The election really sucked the wind out of me, but I'm slowly but surely regaining my hold on terra firma. Be back soon! Peace out!

Wintry Wizardry

I thought WE had a lot of lights. We have nothing, comparatively speaking! HA! This is set to my very favorite Christmas song, btw, "Wizards in Winter". My favorite non-secular Christmas song is "O, Holy Night". Just in case you're wondering! ;-)

Rapid Weight Loss Report - Day 98

So, I'm getting worse and worse about updating my weight loss on here! Sorry about that! I've been somewhat preoccupied, but here are a couple of pictures. The heavier one of me was taken in August, just 2 weeks before surgery. The "lighter" one of me, 70 lbs. lighter in fact, was taken yesterday during our Christmas card photo shoot by my awesome friend, Barb. Check out her blog for more of the pictures from that session! She did a wonderful job!

Birthday Boy!

On this very day, three LOOOOONNNNG decades ago, a miraculous thing occurred. A Ralphie was born. Ralph William McCorkle, Jr. Turning 30 years young today. I just want to wish him a wonderful day and let him know how much I appreciate him putting up with all my antics! I love you, babe! Happy, happy, happy, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
