Michelle Obama's Fight Against Childhood Obesity

I am so excited to see that one of the First Lady's initiatives is going to be eradicating childhood obesity. One of my son's is just like his Dad, he loves, loves, loves to eat. But, for a while there was not any follow up of physical activity. Just video games and snacks and, I am totally to blame for that.

I got the message when I discovered that my 11 year old weighed more than my 16 year old. So, I eliminated "seconds" and signed him up for basketball. I just made little changes on my own, and I am starting to see small changes. So, I can't wait to see what FLOTUS has in store with her national campaign. Take a look @ the video as she announces her fight.

Michelle Obama's SOTU dress

Michelle Obama SOTU dress

FLOTUS was flawless at the SOTU in her violet ensemble. The dress was designed by Issac Mizrahi. There are mixed reviews, but I thought the dress really complimented her shape as well as her height. It was a fun dress with a bubble skirt. It retails for $1850 in the Mizrahi Fall Collection. A bit out of my price range, but dead-on choice, nonetheless. The single strand of pearls set the dress off, too. The only thing I missed were her shoes . . .
