Ultimate Blog Party

I'm joining the Ultimate Blog Party from Five Minutes for Moms!

To get aquainted, my name is gail and I am a mom and grandmom in the northeastern USA. My life is full and busy looking after my home and my five year old granddaughter, Isabella, who is on the autism spectrum.

Currently, I am organizing, for the second year, our walk for Autism Speaks. Last year, our team raised nearly $3000! I even painted my nails blue for the occasion!

In January, I joined Weight Watchers and have taken off 14 pounds of the 50 I hope to lose. My treadmill has been dusted off and, I am happy to say, it is getting a work out. I am tired of being frumpy Booboo, as Isabella calls me.

Finding new recipes that are appealing to my family and are WW friendly has become a mission in my life. I will be happy to share.

Looking forward to meeting new "friends" through this outreach.

Blessings, gail
