defining your why…

Have  you ever come to a place in your life where you’ve thought something over for so long that you find yourself coming up with reasons to talk yourself out of the reasons for not doing something. (try to get that straight in your head… )  That was me a few weeks ago.  I knew…

Mexican Hot Chocolate ViShake

I’m quickly learning,  my favorite part about taking on this challenge is getting to create a whole bunch of fun new ways to mix up these shakes.   This morning I was feeling a little extra saucy… and you all know how much I LOVE THINGS SPICY!!! So I decided to add a little kick…

DAY ONE… of 90

This morning I was lying in bed, in that warm cuddly sweet spot that makes you not want to move… you know the one I’m talking about… it feels like perfection and can completely consume a morning if you let it. As I just laid there, I started thinking about the challenge I’m taking on,…

My Yellow Dress

Everyone has those jeans they wish they could get back into… so we set a goal and get to work.  Especially when the warmer months come around, skin begins to start showing and clothes peel off… well as a curvy woman who has never minded showing her arms or legs no matter what the temperature……

My April GLOSSYBOX…

For the past few months I’ve been researching subscription boxes… while checking out the reviews I’ve learned most importantly that the average consumer is quite finicky about both their products and the money the use to spend it.  Both of these reasons  I can highly respect.  After searching out the various options,  I decided that…

Peach & Berry Cobbler

I’ve been completely craving spring lately… maybe its because I’m accustomed to the Arizona climate but regardless I’m ready for warmer weather… sundresses… and flip-flops. The other day in the middle of snow sleet and rain,  I decided to make of all things a fruit cobbler.   The mixture of peach, blackberry, strawberry was perfection….

Valentines Cut-Outs (Sugar Cookies)

While I’m not the biggest fan of commercializing a holiday… I will say that Valentines Day is one of my favorite ideas of a holiday.   I love the idea of love, and doing nice sweet gestures for people.  I have never actually made cut-out sugar cookies before so I thought I would make a…

BE DIFFERENT…

“What can we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since God did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t God, who gave us Christ, also give everything else?” Romans 8:31-32 Have you ever made a conscious…

Ruby Red Grapefruit Vinaigrette

Last year I began a new love for something that I’d generally avoided…  fruit.  I know it sounds weird and I really don’t have a reason why I did.  I found though that fruit & wine are a wonderful pair, I’m sure your thinking well duh, right about now seeing as its a derivative of…

It’s time to rewrite your story…

and the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows. – Luke 12:7 Deep inside of you there is a well. A deep well filled with dreams, visions, and ideas.  Thoughts of who you are, of what you will become, of…
