  1. What's this 25 pounds nonsense?!? you looked gorgeous, dahling, at my house a couple of months ago and that was BEFORE you lost the 9 pounds. Puh-lease.
    A triathlon! I love it! Which one?!? Maybe you'll inspire me to start training again for one...

  2. I Love this post! It was fun to see the old pics! Sounds like an exciting upcoming year...I was hoping visit NYC would be on the list....and none of this saving money nonsense!!! :)

  3. Congrats on the 9 pounds!!! Did I count 12 kids??

  4. How do you manage to look so great throughout all of your different stages?

    This was fun!

  5. Love it! Especially that first picture...makes me wanna squeeze you! Oh, and what's all this smack about you loosing weight? Your bod is already to die for!

  6. Ya, not feeling sorry for you at all because as I recall you had plenty of boys knocking your door down during the so-called "awkward phase". Don't even deny or I will start listing names! Ü

  7. You are too cute Liz! Holy cow I saw the picture of you and your mom and was amazed to realize that I am in your mom's ward!!! She is an amazing lady! (If I already knew that... I've lost quite a few brain cells due to pregnancy...) HA! I found you off Julie's blog, you girls are the cutest. And I second the motion, you are too hot already and would be dead if you lost 25 pounds! So fun to see you again... vicariously through the internet... ;) I'll take what I can get.
