One of the things I've found that make me feel awful is SUGAR. It's crazy how tired and sluggish I feel when I eat a lot of sugary foods, pasta, bread, etc. I have spent the last ten days or so eating low carb foods, and added water to my diet, and I'm glad to say that I've lost about 8 pounds. Yay . . .
If you are stopping by from At Home on the Bay, welcome! I can't wait to try Mary's Cheddar Jack Cheese Potato Casserole - it looks so good! Of course, anything with cheese and potatoes is okay with me. Now, let's move on to my easy last minute chili! Is it just me, or do you start to crave . . .
How to make Coconut Haystacks Yesterday, I got a hunkering for a coconut haystack. You know the ones that you can only find in a chocolate store, and they are usually crazy expensive. So while at the store buying yucca flour (for pan de buono - a gluten free bread that is delicious) , I saw a . . .
Citrus Salt Body Scrub Every May, I get the itch to take a beach chair, a good book and a frozen drink and sit with my toes in the sand, watching the waves roll in on a quiet beach. In a perfect world, I'd love to make it my way to close out the day, but until school is finished for the year, I . . .
Straight from Pinterest - Minion Cupcakes and Zombie Cake The last few weeks have been a little bit of a blur for us, which explains my absence from blogging for a while. It's all good things, but we seem to have hit our busy time of year. Traveling, birthday parties, getting the shed set up... . . .
Although I'm not posting as much as I used to, it's not because I haven't been trying new pins. In fact, I've been putting a lot of pins to the test lately while I'm trying to get ready for the 20 or so people that are coming for Thanksgiving. I love having my family together for the holidays, but I . . .
Hi there! Long time, no post, huh? Sorry about that. It's been a crazy, overwhelming month and I just couldn't do much more than get through it as best as I could. But I do have lots of projects that I am going to be sharing - including our new master bathroom!! It's about 90% complete, but I fear . . .
I have the tendency to buy tubes of cinnamon buns, and then forget about them. I have grand ideas of how they will be the perfect addition to Sunday morning, while we bond over breakfast on the patio... but instead, they sit in the fridge, usually until it's time to clean it out, and then I see that . . .
Gift Ideas for an 18 year old My daughter turned 18 the other day. To be honest, the idea of her being an "adult" both terrifies and excites me. I can't get over that my baby is old enough to vote, buy lottery tickets and make her own decisions, etc. I see her making plans for someday moving out, . . .
On Thursday evening my family went to an awards ceremony for my daughter. She won a Gold Key award for a story she wrote, and they were honoring the winners. We are insanely proud of her :) After the awards ceremony, we went to dinner at Outback to celebrate. We tried their new desert, an Oreo . . .
