Easter is getting a makeover this year


Do you ever get tired of all the work holidays take? Don’t get me wrong I love the holidays but I sometimes need a break from doing everything for everyone else but me. I feel like I lost what the true meaning of Easter is because I was busy doing everything but…Especially since I have a child of my own I want to be able to enjoy him & watch every little bit of excitement because he is only little once. So it’s time to prioritize busy days so everyone is happy including me.

Update: Week 1 Blubber Be Gone

Sorry it took so long to update I have been extremely sick.

Tim & I both had good results, but before I get to that I want to share some other thoughts. Week 1 was really difficult considering we completely changed everything about our eating habits. I stopped drinking a 12 pack of coke every day & Tim cut down on drinking Gatorade. If you think about cutting out coke, that’s about 1,700 calories I wiped out. I probably consumed about 2,000 calories in food & Tim probably consumed even more.

Operation Blubber Be Gone

There are a few of us who has decided to lose weight together and change our eating habits. We will track our weight lose progress each week, which I will post updates. I will also keep track on how well everyone is sticking to their diets & how we are feeling mentally. So what diet or rather eating modification are we going with?

St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes



What kid doesn’t love cupcakes? Do you know what's even better than plain cupcakes? How about cupcakes that are rainbow colored that taste delicious. I remember my mom & me making cupcakes that were multi-colored when I was a kid. So I found the chart of how to make the different colors from food dye. As a tradition we make something fun for each holiday that is of course kid friendly. The kids will not find out what the special food is until the day of. This also makes the fun extra special for them since it is a surprise. I found the recipe on Disney Family Fun site which always has  really awesome recipes, especially for kids.

MUSCLE MILK REVIEW

When I started working out, my body would hurt and ache so bad that I would have a hard time getting motivated to go on. My body was not being nourished like it was supposed to considering I was working out. I had no idea what I was lacking and if I only knew I would have done things differently so much sooner.

Ollie’s Bargain Outlet

First let me start off by saying I don’t have the patience to look through stuff for bargains. I don’t like to go to certain stores and look through a million clothes that have buttons missing, holes or whatever is wrong with it to find that one good piece of clothing for cheap. I have nothing against it I just don’t have the patience for that. This is one store I wrote off a long time ago because it was “one of those stores”.

It’s Complicated Movie Review

Mr. Man and I first saw the preview to this movie while we were at the theater to watch Couples Retreat. My first impression was just another mediocre movie with a predicable story line. I kind of forgot about it until Mr. Man wanted to watch it because there was nothing else to watch. Pleasantly surprised is about the only words I could think of while watching this movie. This movie was so good I can’t believe more people are not talking about it. I laughed more at this movie than I did watching Couples Retreat. This movie is so completely different than any other movie I have seen.

Grandmas Chicken n’ Dumplings

This is recipe is so easy and tasty that you would think it came from a country restaurant. My grandma gave me this recipe a few years back and it’s probably one of the best ever.









Bounce Dryer Bar Review

When I first heard of the dryer bar I thought just another fad. I read a few different reviews and one person said that Bounce replaced her bar since it would not stick to her dryer. But I have always been a big fan of Bounce & that’s the only dryer sheets I like to buy. So I gave in & bought a bar because the cost was really good. If you are like me I am sure you have wasted $5 so why not just try this product. I am so very glad I bought the dryer bar.

Fisher Price Smart Cycle Extreme Review

When I was first told about the Extreme Cycle I was hesitant to think a 4 year old could really learn how to control the game yet alone understand how it worked. Could it really teach my child to improve on the skills he already had? The only positive first impression was that it would be good for exercising during the winter months. Not only did my son learn how to operate it fairly easy, he enjoyed (yes enjoyed) the physical activity that went along with playing the games.

Mr. Mans Cornbread & Honey Butter Recipe

This recipe is just too simple to be that good. The honey butter is sweet and rich with the right amount of honey flavor to compliment the cornbread. The cornbread is more of a southern & cake like style rather than the kind you make out of a box. You can tell it’s homemade because of the soft & rich texture. This recipe is definitely easy to make and great tasting.

NBA Live 2010 Review

During the winter months around the area where I live, there is a ton of snow on the ground and it is cold and it is not very desirable to go outside. I love to play basketball and unless I join the YMCA, I have no way to feed my addiction and love for the game of basketball. I enjoy watching college and pro basketball, but it’s not the same. Luckily, I purchased NBA Live ’10 and it will definitely pass as an alternative for the real thing.
