I got to see that one Aunt that always says... Read more

I finally followed through on a referral from my doctor to consult with a weight loss specialist. It was hard to make the call. I didn't have to say that I am morbidly obese. Those words are hard to say. I know that I am on the right track, ... Read more
Drunk on water
Yesterday I took a break from "normal" life and went to a face painting/balloon twisting jam. Drove an hour each way but it was worth it. Learned a new "elf" hat to create for my Christmas Parties and had a lot of fun being with a lot of diffe... Read more

I didn't sleep well last night...first time since October 9th, but I am blaming it on a "happy hangover". After a super productive day my back just wouldn't do any more, so I plopped down in my husband's chair and turned on the t.v. I was goin... Read more

Can't believe this beautiful weather. I had two goals for this fall, in September I was going to clean out my basement, in October I was going to clean out my garage. Not an easy task since when I closed my store 4 years ago everything was mov... Read more
Never Roast a Chicken in a pan that's too small....
I have been know to habitually bake chicken's upside down, my defense is that it actually makes the breast more tender, but last night was a new low. I was too lazy to hunt for the roasting pan, so threw my huge Purdue chicken in a pie pan. Ya... Read more
