Weekend Recap

That's right no weigh in today.  If you guessed that after Friday's post, you are getting to know me so well!  The good news is that increase activity week is off to a great start...workout buddy and neighbor, Rebecca and I got in a walk this morning and I have plans to go to yoga at lunch.

Over the weekend we did some cleaning out at my mom's house.  You have heard me mention that the husband and I are getting ready to move into a house, well that house is my mom's and in order to get it ready for new people to move in, it's important to get the old things cleaned out.  This house is the house I grew up in and my mom lived in it a little while when she was a child.  It has been in the family for a long time.

One of the highlights of the clean out was that we got to look through a lot of old pictures and newspaper clippings.  Here are some of my favorites.

Mom and Dad
Gramps - mom's dad
Grandpa D - dad's dad
Dad as a kid - on left
Mom as bridesmaid
Program from my elementary school.
Yes, I was in the mime troupe because I was super cool.  I was laughing at the super high tech  computer on the program...this was only like a few years ago.

In addition to pictures we found all kinds of crazy random things.

ET windup toy and Avon Betsy Ross perfume bottle...everyone has that right?
We worked very hard on Saturday.  We ended up with a ton of stuff to donate to the Salvation mom is making a drop off trip over there today.  We still have a lot more to do, but we are beginning to make a dent in it.

Sunday we spent relaxing.

Doesn't Trixie look so excited about this snuggle time?
And this morning the husband got awesome news!  He got a promotion!  I am so proud of him!  Congrats angel!!!!
