June 1st. JUNE 1ST?

How can it be June 1st?  How?  My whole last week disappeared into the ether.

I went with my friend Cathy last night to take pics of her son and his date for the prom.  What a gorgeous couple, and what a gorgeous dress......and I loved that his bow tie matched her dress.

Steven and Trish.  Adorable.  That dress is worthy of Ginger Rogers.

Cathy and I are trying a new diet.  Well, not diet exactly...just different types of tea, that are supposed to help you lose weight.  All according to Dr. Oz, who I never watch.  But my mom does, and she's the one who told us about it.  Your first two cups of the day are pu-erh tea, we got the chocolate and is it delicious - doesn't really taste like chocolate, but it's wonderful.  The second two cups are white tea at lunch, then a cup of chickweed at dinner, then a cup of bilberry in the evening.  Mum hasn't changed what she eats, and she's losing weight.  Worth a try!  And I do love tea.  Not the chickweed so much, hard to get past the swampy smell.

The health food store is selling out of the teas very quickly.  You almost have to get there when the stock rolls in.  I'll let you know if it works!

I'm stitching, but slowly.  My Portholes are ready to quilt, but I'm not sure how I want to quilt it.  Hand or machine.  It's marinating.

I hope you have a great weekend, I'll spend it stitching and guzzling tea - see you next week with [hopefully] a finish!

In keeping with graduation and prom week....

Awwwwwwwwww Trish and Steven are adorable!! So is Fluffy, HAHAHA!

Good luck with the tea - my friend and I have decided to join Weight Watchers - we're going for a meeting and to sign up on Monday. Have to do SOMEthing - I've regained and lost (and regained and lost, and regained most of the weight I lost a few years ago -- it's like BOOMERANG weight - it just keeps coming back!

Oh no! I must be doing something wrong my friend, being British I have been drinking Tea all my life and I haven't lost any weight yet!

Where has the time gone this past couple of months? I must be getting old....I can't keep up lol.

*hugs* Heather x

I would love to try that tea diet. I'll have to check it out.

Rachaeldaisy said...

Trish's dress is like a dream dress, such a pretty colour!! I like the idea of drinking teas to lose weight, I do enjoy my cuppas. That fluffy cat is hilarious!! And I agree - it's hard to believe its June already!!

shez said...

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

Allie that dress is gorgeous....nice looking couple..the tea sounds interesting....

Quilt Kitty said...

Steve's mum must be so proud, they both look so wonderful. A beautiful dress, I couldn't imagine wearing something so grown up even now (which I guess says something???). The tea sounds great, except the swampy bit, will be waiting to hear how you go. In a battle between Fluffy & the Vaccuum, Fluffy would win every time, though I bet Fluffy's mum is very handy with a vaccuum with all them pretty furs. Tracee xx

Jan said...

Sweet couple---prom is such a special time for the kids. Fluffy looks like a diva!!!

West Michigan Quilter said...

Love this post. What a sweet couple. Her dress is beautiful! Please tell me more about that tea diet. I love Sandra's comment about boomerang weight. It just keeps coming back!

Ivory Spring said...

Awwww, beautiful dress indeed!

Cheryl said...

Yes a beautiful couple for sure...that dress is stunning!! Yes I need a new diet...think I might also need a new brain to go with the new diet :-)!!

Brenda said...

Love the prom picture. The dress does look like Ginger Rogers style! Let me know if the tea helps or not. Does it all have to be from the health food store. I have boxes of White tea my step mother recently sent me. Had not heard of the other two teas. I would love to loose 25 pounds. I loose and gain between 10 and 15 a year. Always end back at the same weight at the end of the winter no matter how careful I am. Hubs can eat almost anything...stinks.

VivJM said...

Aw, what a lovely couple they make!

I can't believe it's June either - eeeek!

Mama Spark said...

Thanks for the head's up on the tea thing and that dress was gorgeous!

donna said...

Terry said...

And now it's June 3 already! Before we know it, we'll be celebrating the Fourth of July! LOL

Shasta said...

That is a gorgeous dress. It is amazing that it is June already.

cq4fun said...

Wonderful prom picture, and gorgeous dress! I'm wondering where it came from, because it's so unlike other ones I've seen lately. That is worthy of not only Ginger Rogers, but any elegantly romantic movie of the past 50 years.

Good luck with the tea diet.

Michelle May said...

Oh my gosh they are just so cute together! I hope they had a most magical time.
Love the fuzzy kitty. Made me laugh hard!

Joanne Lendaro said...
