Tonight is the eve of our 33rd wedding anniversary!  2-24-79...seems like so long ago.  We have been through so much in the last 33 years.  I must admit, it has not been without trials and challenges...but we keep coming out on top.

We have been blessed with two amazing children.  We did something right that's for sure.  They are both successful and happily married to amazing spouses ~ Holly and Matt are fast approaching three years and Jon and Stephanie ~ just hit their 1 month anniversary.

We face many challenges - Mauro and I are always separated by 3000 + miles - we spend many weeks apart but we persevere.  We are reconnecting!  Many people don't understand why our lives are like they are, but we do what we have to do.  People don't always admit to themselves that not all is a bed of roses...I think being able to admit that allows us to change that.

So, this weekend we are again together in Cali, if even for a few days before he heads out to Latin America again, but we are making the time for a together trip. I'm excited!!

I just couldn't resist sharing a couple of then and now pics...

The Newlyweds 2-24-79

I think we look pretty dang good!!
Happy Anniversary's to another 33!
I love you.

Physique 57 Nudge!

To push against gently, especially to gain attention or give a signal.

I received a gentle Nudge today!  N sent it to H and H sent it to me. 
Allow me to share :)
(Read it from top to will be much more meaningful)

It's ok....I'm just kidding! Just giving you a hard time like you used to give me about my blog. ;-) love you!  

Start physiqueing when you'll feel much better! ;-) and then you can start blogging again and N will be so happy! ;-)

Point well taken ladies....I came right home from work today, took Tiffy out for a walk, came back home, went immediately upstairs, put on my work out clothes (Old Navy)...sound familiar...

Pulled these babies out...

And I Physiqued tonight!!! Can I get a WOOT WOOT for Physiqueing tonight?  I was very rusty (but still got my push-ups Woot Woot), Tanya kicked my bootie (tell her I said hi), and it was hard keeping up. I'm tired, sore and a bit smelly (I kinda want to break out in song to Phoebe's Smelly Cat but I won't).   BUT....I'M BACK!!!

I have been having a bit of a hard time getting re-motivated to blog and do my Physique 57 workouts lately.  At first my lack of Physiqueing was legit...I hurt my back (that's a whole new post that is soon to deserves it's own), then I was busy with all of Jon and Steph's amazing wedding plans (that too deserves a solo post-it will be fantastic)....but I must admit, I fell back into my old ways.....the Suzie excuses :(.  I don't know why I do that.  I was feeling so goooood when I was Physiqueing but I just did it.  No excuses, no real reason, no pity party, no good answer. BUT....I'M Back!!

So my lovelies...H & N....thanks for the gentle, much needed NUDGE. 

Until next time my fellow Physiquesians....
