We are celebrating birthdays at our house today. Doug's brother and sister each have a birthday this week so I have made their mom's cake and frosting, orange with creamy nut frosting on her plate and in her carrier. It is her recipe that she always made down to the fork marks on the top! It doesn't look special but it is special to family. No, I do not plan on having a piece and any leftovers will be sent home with all visitors! None will be left in the house. It was a little difficult to mix up the frosting without taste testing it... but my three year old granddaughter was here to lick the beaters.
However I am celebrating today. I am 5.6 lbs down from last week which gives me a total of 71.6 lb!!! A very sweet elderly lady that I have made an acquaintance with on our every other week dinner with my father in law gave me a sweet compliment last night, which was great encouragement.
I am working on getting my webpage started with Take Shape for Life and think I am going to call mine, "Lose Weight Get Healthy!" I will post a link when I get it started. :) Been pretty busy!
