Berry Chocolate Smoothie

So I have been doing ‘green’ smoothies for about 2 weeks now.  I’ve talked about them a lot on facebook and figured I would blog the recipes we try and like.

In the first two weeks having them for breakfast and lunch, I have dropped my blood pressure 10 points and lost 8.5 lbs.  Yes, . . . → Read More: Berry Chocolate Smoothie

Acrylic Alpha Freebie and Asparagus….

I know – asparagus….but really and truly, we found an awesomely easy and delicious recipe!  The boys (and myself really) have never been asparagus fans.  But we saw Melissa D’Arabian make some and thought we’d give it a whirl…..but she used some ingredients I don’t care for.  I liked the lemon zest idea so I . . . → Read More: Acrylic Alpha Freebie and Asparagus….


Yep, it’s a post all about food!  I’ll start with a few more Bento lunches – although before pictures, I am going to share some links.  I ended up purchasing my goods from 3 ebay sellers.  I was really happy with 2 of them (the other had great prices, but slow shipping – all ordered . . . → Read More: FOOD!

Last food thing, I swear!

Can you tell I’ve done jack squat the last few days?? (speaking of jack squat – that brings up a hilarious story!) My allergies have been terrible and frankly – I’ve just napped a lot! Mostly my allergies give me awful headaches or I am extremely tired. This time it was tired.

Kid story alert!

Revisiting Apple Pie….

Cause I just love it! I’ve not crafted at all this week, but am gearing up for a day of catch up. You know – I have not even finished MY blocks for the mantle yet?? So bad. Anyway, the boys and I are not going anywhere today. I don’t have any extra children in . . . → Read More: Revisiting Apple Pie….
