Naval Academy Lacrosse Clinic

Saturday we headed down to Annapolis for the girls to participate in a lacrosse clinic sponsored by the Navy Women's Lacrosse team. Saturday we bummed around downtown Annapolis, ate lunch, toured the Naval Academy campus, took a nap, swam in the hotel pool, went out to dinner (hibachi, lots of fun), went out for ice cream, and finally went to bed. All of us in one hotel room...luckily we are not big people! Sunday was the clinic...outside....BRRRRR! The temperature was somewhere in the 30's, thank goodness the sun was warm and bright! The girls had a great time! And we are definitely in for next year, the team was great with the girls and such positive role models! Caroline and a partner playing "Sister, Sister"... Emma scooping the ball... Go NAVY... Lulu staying warm in her sleeping bag...

Snow and other stuff!

This is what I can home to, including my own, all over our front lawn sledding. They had a blast. After some hot chocolate and a warm bath they will sleep soundly tonight. Tomorrow my mom and are going fabric shopping. She has been wanting to change her great room at the shore for a while. We did a kitchen remodel last year and now she needs new window treatments and throw pillows to complete room. And for some reason, I am having trouble choosing stuff for her at work. So we decided to venture out together. Speaking of work...we are starting to pick up a little bit. I am hoping with the inauguration people will feel more confident spending money...fingers crossed! Totally inspired by other bloggers, I have started yet another weight loss crusade. I have had success with Weight Watchers in the past, so I am going to give it another shot. This time online, as my schedule just not permit me to get to weekly meetings. So far so good, the site is really easy to navigate and offers tons of tools for success. The hardest part...I only have 22 Points a day! Any and all pointers welcome! Mondays are going to be my Weigh-In was my first weigh in and I am down 2lbs. I am nervous about the accuracy of our scale...again, keeping my fingers crossed. One more thing to keep my fingers crossed about...we are headed to Annapolis to the Naval Academy this weekend for a lacrosse clinic. When we registered the girls we assumed it would be inside, you know because it is January and all, well it it OUTSIDE. I am hoping for a major shift in the weather. Is 65 degrees and sunny asking too much?

Home Again!

Well, I am back from Denver and guess what? It is colder here...go figure! Our meetings were good and it was a great opportunity to network with other designers from all over the country. I have been feeling a bit discouraged at work because, well let's face it, nobody is interested in redecorating in this economic climate. Who can blame them. After the meetings I feel rejuvenated and ready to search for some business! Our weekend plans include...birthday parties, work, Sunday dinner at my In-Laws and the return of Friday Night Lights....WOO HOO! Have a great weekend!

My baby girl celebrated her tenth birthday while we were at the shore last week. TEN! Huge, such a mile stone. She chose to travel 25 minutes north to Atlantic City to have her birthday dinner at the Rainforest Cafe. My parents joined us for dinner and then we returned home for birthday cake, ice cream, and gifts. She was on top of the world. This jump to double digits has brought a lot of change...lots of looking in the mirror and grooming. She even received a Christmas gift from "A BOY" in her class. That is how the card was signed from "A Boy"...too, cute. MBM doesn't agree! TEN...I can't believe it!
