Maggie was the first dog that was all mine. I got her as a puppy. She was the sweetest little thing. So smart and just the best personality. Maggie loved, and I mean LOVED, to play fetch. I would take her to the park and use one of ... Read more

I had a planned splurge on Friday. An outing to Lisa's Tea Treasures: Drink a bunch of tea, have a warm scone with Devonshire cream and jam and eat little sandwiches. Nothing hugely diet wrecking though I did have a few cookies with lemon curd... Read more

Just got back from shopping. I wanted to have snacks but something that wouldn't kill me calorie and fat wise. I ended up with hummus, salsa, and some other kind of spinach and kale greek yogurt dip from Trader Joe's. I'll have veggies and a ... Read more
