Good Morning!

 Good morning Sunshines! 
I'm just showing you the last of my 
Mother's Day roses. 
I can't believe how long they lasted. There were 24 to begin with. I pulled the best of them out and put them in my little sugar bowl by the sink. That way I see them every day.

 I'm also pretty happy this morning about something else. 
What you might ask?

 I've lost 5 lbs! Woo Hoo! A very good thing. Hubs has lost 15!! I think we have finally turned the corner on some of our bad habits. He hasn't had a soda in 6 weeks. Me? 4 weeks! 
And are you ready for this? 
We have cut WAY back on our coffee. Like once a week!  I do miss it though. I'm not going to lie.
  I have also picked up 
this new cook book. The Cooking Lite Gluten-Free cookbook. Doesn't gluten just sound like something that would make you fat?

I've been looking though it and I have to say.... it doesn't look dietary! I'll be sharing some of the recipes with you over the next few weeks. 

I hope you have a blessed Sunday!

Beautiful images as usual darling. But I'm not sure I could give up coffee. ;)

Congrats on all the weight loss.

Congrats to you both, Liz. Everything in moderation, as they say.

Have a great day ~

The roses look so pretty in the sugar bowl,its such fun using things for other than what they were meant for. Good on you losing the weight.

This is the last day of my holidays so I will be back to eating less tomorrow. xx

I need a copy of the cookbook! I have been gluten-free for over a year, and I have lost tons of weight, and I feel better. I am convinced that gluten is from Satan!
