Interesting how the colors come back into fashion - they are on trend for now!! Relish the memories of success - that you participated and gave your all.Pretty darn awesome...And by the way, I would totally be up to some rollerskating now at age 50. I relish in the fact I can say Relish twice in one paragraph but also that I can stand on wheels (or blades) [sidebar: each year I vote for an ice skating holiday party at my office and drag my husband out for a spin at an outdoor rink] Just because I can!! Well Done Champ!!

Wow, how cool. Love the hand lettering and the stamps. Also, I am so excited to hear you have chosen Daniela Costa to be on your teacher list for Inpired. She is terrific and all your students will be excited to meet this fabulous teacher and person.

I love it too. We just bought our retirement home in Bend, Oregon and we will be adding to it and making it a home over time. I will document this home that we live in now and the transformation of the Oregon house into a home. Great idea. I would be interested in a kit if you make more!

This is terrific. I would tell the younger me not to be afraid to follow your heart, you will take some misteps, but it will all be ok. Oh, and the first boyfriend in college? he is a "tester" and while that first breakup is painful, that relationship will lay the foundation for a really terrific guy you will meet in an unexpected place who will turn out to be your best friend, husband and soulmate...and just be you.

Cathy - I love your honesty and owning being you. I try to remember that each day. Some can be good and some can be not so good. I have come to realize that as each day ends a new one begins and I can start again. Being a marketing professional I can rationalize nearly everything. Not so good with weight as its there in your face. I recently lost 5 pounds just by eating better. I was not trying to lose, but it has inspired me to move. Just that small amount changed my dress size and made me feel better. I join you in this battle to make healthy and "fit" (my word of the year) a good habits. As a dog trainer I tell my clients that good habits are just as hard to break as bad...so here is to all of us - Cheers to Good Habits and feeling great!

I never thought I would enjoy a "nevers" list as much as I did from you and the folks who have posted. Wow! Pretty darn cool. I never in my wild imaginations thought that I would be the owner of an iphone. Hubby surprised me for my 50th birthday...one I will never forget! Thank you, Phoebe, I mean Cathy, lovely lovely post!

What a wonderful exercise. As I am about to turn 50 I have found that I am quite reflective today. I wrote most of my xmas cards and in going through my address book, took a few moments to think about each person when I met them and how knowing them has changed my life. Some of them provided to me through their friendship incredible lessons and learnings that only today would I have known were so important. My journalling for 10 minutes consisted of writing notes to myself of these lessons and the people connected to them so that I can write out my feelings about those lessons and those people more fully. I would never have thought to do that if not for this exercise. I love BPS and look forward to another amazing year of classes!

Not overdoing is something you are learning and its ok that its different. Try new things and see what you like and what you dont want to do again next year. Getting out of the what is expected vs what you want is huge. Congrats on that. I am enclosing a quote I saw on Big Picture about the Grinch written by Dr. Seuss, I think it will resonate with what you are feeling....happy holidays "And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?" ~Dr. Seuss

So glad you got your bug back. Contact me about helping you with Roxie - until then check out www.openpaw.org for great information about raising a puppy. I head out of town on the 19th and back just after the new year.

Congratulations - sounds like everything fell into place as it is supposed to and everything was lovely. Thank you for sharing the photos. I hope to see Blindside very soon. I understand the young man in the story is playing in the NFL today. I love true stories of courage, kindness and triumph.

Perhaps contacting Tim Gunn at project runway to get a few designers to use your idea/challenge/products in their designs...with you as the model. You could have an entire wardrobe...!

Love it - I remember my Mom used to play the Christmas with Mitch Miller 33. I loved singing those old songs along with him and my siblings while putting up the christmas ornaments. Wow does that take me back! Thanks for the link good old Perry Como!
Yay! Congrats to the ladies that won the goodies and though I was not one of them I feel I too am a winner for participating in this project. Congrats to you Cathy for reaching out and getting us all involved. Clean water makes the world go around and I feel blessed to have been able to participate.
