Sunday Salon - Mother's Day Edition


Happy Mother's Day to Mom's Everywhere!
 
How was your week blog readers?   It's kinda scary the way the weeks have a way of just flying by.  I feel like I have all sorts of new energy lately. I've lost 23lbs in the last (4) months so I am pretty happy,  and also having fun building a new spring wardrobe:). Still hoping to lose some more over the summer, which with all the fresh fruit and veggies and ice cream, I'm hoping it won't be too difficult.

I've been busy reading, but have not sat down to write any reviews this week...sighhh. Here's what I've read (a few were in process from the previous week):

Currents reads:
Today's plans have changed a bit, as we were off to a local winery but the weather is cloudy with rain expected.  Looking forward to relaxing, some company this afternoon and just enjoying a Mom's Day of doing as I please. Same to all of you.

  5. Oh, yikes! Listening to The Dinner on Mother's Day might not be the best idea! ;) We had indoor plans today, so clouds and rain not too disappointing. Enjoy your day!

    1. Thanks JoAnn. The Dinner is actually not bad on audio. There is an accent to get comfortable with.

      Happy Mom's Day, and have a great week as well.

  10. Congrats on the weight loss - what fun to get a new wardrobe. Especially fun for summer when you're looking better just as you're shedding winter's sweaters.

  13. You've gotten some good reading in! I have read a couple books in the last week (both YA) and really enjoyed them. Now I just need to get the reviews written!

  14. Well done for losing the weight - I think I'm almost ready to start a diet (I have to be in the right mind set for it, or I will fail miserably). So nice that you can buy some new clothes - that is when you notice best how much weight has come off, isn't it?

    I loved the Chosen - I read it many years ago and re-read it at least once. Have fun with The Dinner!

  15. Good for you, losing weight and getting to reward yourself with some new Spring clothes! I hope you enjoyed your Mother's Day!

  16. Congrats on the weight loss success, Diane. It's not easy, I know!
    I'm reading Looking for Me right now and loving it. Have a great week.

  17. How fun to have Beth Hoffman leave a comment on this post! I never read her first, so successful, novel but I am very much looking forward to reading Looking For Me which arrived this week at my door.

    My son called from San Diego at 7:00 last night, so I could dry my tears about wondering if he would ;) and Mother's Day ended happily Chez Bellezza. Hope all is well with you, too. xo

  20. Wow, lucky you! That's dedication losing 23 lbs. Please rub elbows so that I can get motivated 100 percent ;) Nice list of books here too. I live near several wineries and haven't been to one yet. Keep talking about it, one of these days. Enjoy your trip out there.

    1. Hi Denise --- thanks so much. We never did get to the winery, but all of our company made the day perfect for all:)

  21. I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day! Wow! 23 lbs is a lot of weight! Good for you!

    It was so hot here and is hot again today. Ninety is okay but 100+ is when I get grouchy and when our A/C, which is only 3 years old but appears to be a lemon, took a dump last night, I REALLY got grouchy.

    1. Thanks Ti -- yes, something seemed to sink in this time when i got serious about weight loss. Healthy competition with my daughter who lost about the same (hers baby weight) helped us both.
