My distressed and antiqued coffee and side tables makeover

August 30, 2012

Looking around my living room and it’s brown, brown, beige and beige.  I need some color in my life.  How haven’t I noticed this before? My wore out coffee table and side tables, all dinged up, scuffed and brown, the ideas started flowing! I am really loving the distressed, antiqued look.  I just knew I […]

On our 5th wedding anniversary DT and I took a trip to Galveston and we ate at the famous Gaidos restaurant.  Gaidos is a “fancy” seafood restaurant right on the beach of Galveston, the food is so delicious and so fresh!  I ate the fresh tuna and DT had the fried platter and as a […]

Menu Plan Monday

August 27, 2012

This past weekend the family and I went on our very first RV camping trip.  It was so much fun, a lot of work too, but mostly fun.  Needless to say, our meals were the usual hamburgers and hotdogs, so my eating was not the best, but I am ready to jump back to eating well […]

August 22, 2012

I found this pretty vase at a garage sale a few weeks ago.  I wasn’t sure at the time what I had in mind with for it, but I decided to add a little paint and spruce it up a bit.  Since the vase/flower pot had such a pretty design and deep grooves, I thought […]

While on my Advocare 10 day cleanse, I was having a major craving for something sweet, cookies in particular.  As far as the cleanse goes, white flours and sugar are off limits!  So, I had to get a little creative.  I made these simple drop cookies and even incorporated the chocolate Advocare Meal Replacement shake […]

Weight loss and cleanse results…updated pictures

August 17, 2012

I am still trucking along with my weight loss journey.   I had stalled out a bit this summer and only lost about 1-2 lbs all summer, ugh.  I was still eating fairly well (but not the best) and also exercising with various workouts, shredding, yoga and running mostly. I was completely bummed about my no […]

DIY: Antique Mercury Glass

August 15, 2012

I might be a little obsessed with home decor, crafting, and up-cycling lately.  I might also be slightly obsessed with garage sales, thrift store, and antique shopping.  The older, more rustic looking, the better.  And cheap is even better! I have plenty of boring ole mason jars, plain glass vases, and what nots laying around.  I think […]

If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you might know I have a thing for brownies.  I have no less than 5 recipes for brownies on my blog.  And I am always searching for the next greatest recipe.  Lately, eating healthier and wiser has been my choice, since I am trying to tighten […]

Menu Plan Monday

August 13, 2012

I am finishing up my advocare cleanse this week, and this time around (my 3rd time) doing the cleanse has been by far the easiest.  I am down a few pounds, and feeling really great.  I love doing the cleanse so much, it’s amazing how well it makes me feel and cuts the junk out […]

Greek Yogurt Cheesecake
