Watching my baby Peonies GROW

Every year I eagerly anticipate my peony bushes getting nice and full and the little pink and red golf ball buds appearing.
 For weeks I watch these colorful little golf balls as the stretch toward the sunshine and begin to unfold.
 Soon the air around my patio will be perfumed with their fragrant smell.
I will be able to begin clipping full blooms to put in vases around my house so that my house too will be filled with their wonderful perfume
Oh how I love you my lovely peonies!!

New GOALS in my Weight Loss Journey . . . . . 5K

I have been on a weight loss journey for more that a year now and at this point I am 86 pounds down with another 41 to go to reach my goal weight.  Although running has NEVER been my thing and I don't think I am any good at it (I was always more of a cyclist) one of my new goals is to enter and successful complete a 5K THIS YEAR.

SO last night I pre-registered for a Color Vibe 5K Run!

Doesn't this look like FUN!!!!

So to that end I have bought Rachel and I our first Jogging stroller and retired (aka SOLD) our precious Graco stroller that 2 of our little Miracles rolled around in :-(
here is a picture of the new beauty arriving at our home today (Baby Trend Expedition Jogging Stroller in Bubble Gum order through site-to-store Walmart)

I will update you on what I think of it later today OR maybe tomorrow if it has a lot of putting together that will need Big D's help.

Wish me luck and pray I reach my goal!
