Skinnygirl Daily – Review

You know what’s good? Being able to sleep in. Finding money in a jean pocket you forgot was there. Discovering that your kids did their homework with out you telling them too. And feeling good. And by that I mean, feeling awake, energized and all around fine.  I’ve found that if I add a little

Learning Something New

For those that do work outside of English speaking countries, or enjoy traveling, it’s necessary to have a resource that will guide you toward proper translation.  Sure it can be funny to misinterpret something in conversation, but not when “time is money”; mistakes can be very costly.  My husband occasionally does on-line work with other

The Digest Diet – Week 3

There was a time, say about 5 days into The Digest Diet, that I was ready to cave.  I was done.  It seemed that I wasn’t organized enough with my grocery shopping and every recipe required 14 different ingredients, of which 3 I didn’t have. Back to the store I go. Then there was adjusting

Rascal Flatts – Changed and Fly Away Contest!

My husband and I went to see a movie starring Rascal Flatts.  Wait, I mean we saw a concert by Rascal Flatts in the theater.  No, that’s not quite it either.  What the event was is a little hard to define but I feel that fits perfectly with the kind of performers that make up

Health Insurance

For years we have had to pay for our own health insurance. Trying to find a good plan for what’s right for our family is, to be honest, a pain. It’s stressful, sometimes confusing, and overwhelming. (Perhaps I should add this job to my resume ;-> ) One thing I have learned is to do

The Digest Diet – Week 2

OK.  I’m in the groove now.  I can even make the the Fade Away Shake without looking at the ingredients and measurements!  (It’s the little things.) I am at a consistent weight loss of 6 lbs. My stats:  Height – 5′ 10″  Weight – 174.  To be honest I’m not doing the exercises.  Which is

Char Crust Dry Rub Review and Giveaway

With the weather getting warmer my husband gets to do the kind of cooking that brings a smile to his face – grilling. I don’t know what it is about cooking on the grill but I’m sure he would list it as an actual “Happy Place”.  Recently we tested out some dry rubs to season-up

The Digest Diet – 1 Week Later

 Oooo Kaaaaaa I am not a “diet” person.  I stopped going by the latest eating fad years (and years) ago.  I knew I had had enough when I fell for the Cabbage Soup Diet.  “Flush Pounds Away With This Amazing Soup!”  I don’t need to say any more about that one, do I?  I finally

Schwan's – Easter Dinner Is Ready

My husband is an amazing cook and I enjoy baking very much.  When it’s a holiday our families gather to ooh-and-ahh over the edible creations that we all share from our kitchens.  (My husband has a magical touch with his grilled asparagus that has the family request his vegetable specialty every year. ;-> ) However,
