Go -- my 2016 OLW -- featuring Bella Blvd. :)

Hi everyone! :)

Our latest sketch is live over at The Memory Nest and I wanted to share my take on it :)

My OLW (One Little Word) came to me recently and this year it's "GO" -- I am continuing my weight loss journey this year (I am down 34 pounds so far!) ... and "GO" is perfect for me, since my weight loss journey is mostly about me getting off my butt and WALKING :) 

I used Bella Blvd.'s "Valentina" collection on my layout :)

One day as I had been walking around like a crazy woman all day and had stopped to take a break and I looked at my FitBit and I was at 11,111 steps for that day! I don't think I could have those numbers display on my FitBit again at once if I wanted them too! LOL :)   (disclosure -- I usually walk more than that on a daily basis -- but I just thought it was funny I caught it displaying that number at once) :) 

And here is our sketch :)

Also, I wanted to share something else today :)

Our Elf on the Shelf (Timothy) gave me and Brookie tickets to Disney on Ice presents "Frozen" for Christmas -- and this past Saturday was the show!!! Brookie was SO EXCITED!!!! We were in the first rows too (thanks Timothy for hooking us up with such awesome, but COLD! seats! LOL!)

I wanted to share some photos from the show :)

Brookie was over the moon with the show!!! She was singing her heart out during all the songs ... it was a great day! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
