Anyways, my sister has been waiting for her bar results and on Friday, she finally got them. SHE PASSED!!! On her first try! I am so happy for her. She did so well that she is able to waive into DC without having to take another test. We are all so proud of her and can't wait to see the awesome things God will be doing in her life.
I also have another bit of good news but I am not at liberty to share it yet. No, I am NOT pregnant...at least not yet. But it has to do with another one of my sisters. Once I am given the go-ahead, I will share it. Needless to say, this Christmas is going to be a lot of fun with the whole family! :-).
We had a full weekend. I have been listening to a book by Gillian Michaels called "Slim for Life." It really is changing my mindset about food and being healthy so I have decided to give it a try. I figured I have nothing to lose but the weight :-). Needless to say, I have started implementing some of the changes around the house. J wasn't too thrilled with some of them but I think he is slowly but surely adjusting. Its an adjustment. We used to be so great with our eating habits but somehow, somewhere, we got away from it. We're getting back on track!
On Saturday, JOE had her swim lessons. She was actually the only kid in her age group in the pool! I guess a lot of people didn't sign up since it is getting cold. It is actually a make up session for JOE since we missed the first 2 classes. Since JOE enjoys it, we didn't want to deprive her of the classes.
We did our grocery shopping and decided to stop by Lowes to price out the cost for a couple of DIY projects around the house. We'll be painting the half bathroom and putting a back-splash in the kitchen. I can't wait to see the final outcome. I'll be sure to post pics when they are done.
On Sunday, we went to Church and then visited with my college friend. She had a baby boy a month ago and he is just the cutest! And such a good baby! He did not cry while we were there. I must admit, carrying a newborn did make me miss JOE at that age but don't worry...my ovaries aren't tingling quite yet :-). By the time we got home, we were both very tired. A lot of time and money last weekend was spent preparing for JOE's party. I am eager to get the show on the road and to hang out with my family. It'll be so much fun!
I gave the camera a rest this weekend and didn't take many pics but here are a few pictures of birthday DIY items and from last week.
How was your weekend? I hope it was loads of fun. I'd love to hear about it!
Have a blessed week!!!

I don't celebrate Halloween but I saw this and was quite tickled by it. These people are die hard fans huh?
