2008 JROTC Military Ball

Well, I am finally getting a chance to get back to my blog. Last weekend was a busy one. Fri., 3/15 was our son's JROTC Military Ball and he had asked us to chaperone. We had a great time dressing up and watching the kids. They are a great bunch of kids, so it was an easy job. We had a very nice dinner and then the kids danced the night away. DH and I were even able to slip in on the last slow dance ourselves. Jacob's girlfriend was crowned Ball Queen. Jacob didn't make King, but he only lost by one vote. Soooo close! He was okay with that thou. Don't my men look spiffy, they clean up nice, don't they. My husband was happy that he fit into his uniform again for this. We have been doing Jenny Craig and he had reached the goal he set for himself. As you can see I am a looong way away from my goal, but I have lost 30 lbs. I just have to keep reminding myself, that it took me a long time to get this way and it is going to take a long time to get it off. I would rather do it the slow way and hope it will stay off. I am not one to go the surgery route (big chicken). I've known several girls that had the gastic by-pass and it did well for them, but I just can't see me ever going that route. Anyway, Saturday, I attended Day 2 of a crop I was suppose to be at on Fri. as well, but missed it to go to the ball. I won the silent auction for a Cricut Expressions. Spent more than I should have, but got a great deal on it along with a lot of extras for it. Sunday was Jacob's 18th birthday and he had some of his JROTC friends over for a video game tournament and grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. Fun was had by all.

This weekend is my only quiet one at home for awhile. Next week I have my monthly crop with friends, vending at the Barbara Hicks Geslock's Women's Forum and Sun., I am doing a workshop with military families to make a mini wallet album and card to send to their spouses/parents that are deployed to Iraq. That should be a lot of fun. The first weekend in April I am vending again at a fundraising Bingo for a friend of mine's son's youth bowling league and the second weekend I am vending at a fundraiser for another friend's Order of the Eastern Star's First Craft Fair (another fundraiser). I still need to decide when to have another stamp-a-stack at my house.

I just finished a baby gift for my niece. I will post a picture of it after I have mailed it off to her and allowed a few days for it to get to her.
