Whirlwind weekend!!

Hi guys - Happy Monday to everyone out there! I hope you all had an amazing weekend!!

Mine was quite a whirlwind of a weekend! I had such a great time I do not know where to start!

On Friday night, my sister came in to town from the Harrisburg area and we both went up to my parents house at their lake. We got up early Saturday and it was already 80 degrees so we went directly out to the lake to swim and play! The new paddle board got a workout! We also inherited a flamingo we found floating in the middle of the lake - it had escaped from someone and we were very happy to give it a home with us! LOL!

Me paddling...

My sis flamingoing...

 A little collision...LOL!

 On Saturday afternoon, my little sister and her kids came up to the lake and we all went to the town my parents were born (Uhrichsville, OH) and raised for a big 50th birthday bash for myself and three of my cousins. We all turn 50 this summer (my birthday was May and the others are in June, July and August)!

My cousin Pat who is still from that area organized a huge birthday bash/family reunion for everyone!!! How nice, right? We all brought food, he ordered a pig to be roasted for the main dish and he even got a local band to play at night on the stage in the Uhrichsville Park! It was a great night!!

We had tons of food and fun and family and then went back to my parents house for some shut-eye. Me and Aly were all tucked in bed when our bed was crashed by a few others...LOL!

On Sunday we all went to church and then spent the rest of the day playing in the lake!
My niece,big sis and nephew floating!

 My Dad and Aly know it is HOT when my Dad get in the lake! LOL!

When I got home last night I was SO EXCITED to watch Big Brother and guess what??!? There were storms while I was away and my cable box was blown! UGH!!! I did not have any TV at all!!!

Oh well, it happens! I went to Xfinity today at lunch to get a replacement box and will plug it in  when I get home from work. I hope it is as simple as plugging it in and calling to have it activated - fingers crossed!!

I hope everyone has a great evening!

I also hope that at least a few of you will join me tomorrow for Trim down Tuesday! I also hope that scale is at least down something tomorrow!!! See you soon-HUGS!

Anyone else in the 50 club? Anyone else feel younger with every birthday? Anyone joining me tomorrow???...pretty pretty please???


  1. I will do a start weight. I know it's bad! Ugh!.

    I wish we could swim in our lake out here but I got a nasty infection last time I was in there. That cured me of wanting to float around in it anymore.

    Our family has so much drama now when we all get together. I'm jealous of you guys having such a good time!

    1. Oh trust me Julie - we have drama too! We just keep trying to be patient with each other but we fight and just get over it since we are family! :-) That is such a shame about your lake...I swear it is so nice to just float around and flip each other - the whole summer is paybacks for how many times you were flipped - LOL! My weight is so high, I just finally figured I need to suck it up and post it and pics to keep myself accountable! I am so happy to be blogging again - it makes all the difference! Hugs!!!

  2. Happy belated birthday. It sounds like you and your family had a blast swimming and playing at the lake house. The paddle board and the flamingo must have been fun!

    1. Hi Annette! Thanks for stopping by - it was a blast! Hope you are well!! Have a great week! Hugs

  3. I am well into the 60 club! LOL Your weekend sure looks like it was so much fun! How great to do a family reunion to celebrate so many 50th birthdays!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by and reading Terri! It was a blast and so much better than a surprise party just for me! We had so much fun! Now that I am there - 50 feels so young!!! HA
