Happy Halloween!!!

I can’t believe its Halloween already!! It’s going to be a great day. I can’t remember the last time it was on a Saturday, but to have the time to get costumes on, help with make-up and not have to take a vacation day from work is awesome!! My goal today, and I’ve only done…

Day 2 challenge

So trying to get more fruits and veggies in, I’ve had to really think about what I was eating and how to fit it all in. For breakfast, I made a smoothie, with spinach, acai berry juice, and 2 servings of frozen mixed fruit. It was really good! Then I had 1/2 cup of oatmeal…

Veggie/Fruit challenge

Yesterday, I talked about how fruits and veggies affect your health. I listened to a Dr. who suggested we eat 10-13 serving of vegetables and fruits every day! How is that possible, I thought? But I decided to give it a try and see if I could do it, and it wasn’t as hard as…

Are you digging your grave with your fork?

Crock pot chicken fajitas

It’s the time during the school year where there are conferences, plays, and music concerts that makes working full time, getting a healthy meal on the table in a jiffy really hard. Yesterday was that kind of day. My husband and I ran to one conference during lunch, and the other one was at 6:00…

Pumpkin bread

I’ve read a bunch of blogs lately using pumpkin and I LOVE pumpkin! It’s one of those things that I bake that smells like fall. I’ve had a can of pumpkin in my pantry for several months now. Every time I would see it, I would think to myself, “I have to make something with…

Busy weekend!!

I was so busy this weekend, I didn’t go on the computer once! What’s up with that?? First off, I have to share a major score I got yesterday. I was picking my daughter up from a birthday party and on the way home, I see a beautiful wood desk with chair on someone’s front…
