Week in Review

Last Sunday was my middle child’s 14th birthday so I had asked a girl we go to church with to make him a cake to surprise him with before Sunday School.  She came up with this really cool camouflage design. After church we went to eat (he chose Burger King) and then to the movies to […]


Yes! That is what I have lost so far.  I really started working on my 1 year goal on my birthday (Nov 30th) and as of now, am right on track.  I need to lose about 2 lbs a week to achieve my 100 lbs off by my next birthday and that is exactly what […]

Planned 5K Walks for 2011

Everyone knows how much I love coffee.  I use my amazing Keurig Brewer every single day.  What you don’t know is that a week ago, I switched to decaf! What?!? Yep.  It originally wasn’t intentional. A friend gave me a bunch of K-Cups and 2 boxes were decaf.  I didn’t really think I would use […]
