Peeps. It’s What’s for Dinner

Okay.  I know that having Peeps for dinner is not the most nutritious choice that one can make, but it’s a choice that I made tonight.  To be quite honest, I wasn’t really in the mood for any particular kind of food and I saw some of the new Party Cake Peeps at the store, so I grabbed a pack.  I hadn’t planned on having them for dinner, but I did.  Peeps is something I used to get in my Easter Basket as a kid  I usually never ate them.  I went for the chocolate candy.  One can never have too much chocolate.  🙂   Marshmallow candy was for babies as far as I was concerned.  I have a confession to make.  I was wrong.  I love Peeps, well, at least the Party Cake flavor Peeps.  The stats on them are not too bad either.  If you are craving something sweet, these hit the spot.

Happy Birthday to Me!

2014 birthday

Beautiful Memories of March 20, 2014

This year for my birthday, I took matters into my own hands and ordered myself a birthday cake from Caroline’s Cakes.  I have heard about her cakes for a long time, and decided it was high time that I try one.

I needed to have my cake delivered to my granny’s house because of my work schedule. Sometimes the delivery man will leave things on our porch, and there was no way I was going to lose this cake!   When she called to tell me it had arrived, she told me that the box was gigantic and looked like it held a cake big enough to feed an army. Let’s just say, I couldn’t wait to go pick it up after work! Continue reading

Accountability, who needs it?

Me, that’s whom…

Today started off like most Saturday morning, sipping coffee and browsing the internet.  My dogs just had to interrupt my lazy morning by wanting to go outside, so I obeyed like a good human should and took them out.  Much to my surprise it had gotten a lot warmer outside and was turning in to be a beautiful day.  I knew I had a choice to make, go back inside and continue my internet browsing and waste this beautiful day or go work out.  Continue reading

Destination Transformation


My husband showed me the above cartoon the other day and although it is very funny, it also reminded me of all the crazy things we try to do to “transform” ourselves.  There are so many things on the market that promise to transform us from being overweight to being slim overnight.  I wish that there was a magic pill out there that we could take before bed and wake up the next morning as a brand new person.  The truth is, there isn’t such a pill that exists…at least not yet.
