Oh, Fall, you lovely thing–and the menu plan!

Big Daddy and I have a favorite walk we like to take with the girls. It’s a bit of a drive and the walk isn’t long. However, it is easy for little legs to navigate mostly on their own with just a hand needed for the steep/uneven parts. It winds through tall trees and you […]

Weigh In: Week Four

One thing I’ve always known about weight loss is that it’s a game of inches both literally and figuratively. I’m accepting a slow rate of weight loss, which has always been difficult for me and realizing that taking small steps and making small changes are creating a way of eating and living than I can […]

Big Daddy and I are lucky, I think. Unlike so many people we find that marriage isn’t a lot of hard work. Connecting is usually very easy for us and we enjoy the time we have with each other. I can’t really give marriage advice to people, because the path Big Daddy and I usually […]

The Girl Who Waited

I want to start off by saying that I won’t be quite the same ever again. Angus changed me forever and holding him as he passed away was something that I don’t think I’ll recover from, completely. I jokingly told Big Daddy that Angus was one my great love and while that’s not all the […]

Pittsburgh-And the Menu Plan

I was lucky enough to spend the night out in Pittsburgh this weekend.  If you’ve never been to Pittsburgh, I’m sure you’re imaging something it’s not.  I imagined things like you did before my first visit there, I’m sure.  Dirty.  Run down.  Unexceptional, but that’s not true.  Pittsburgh is a gem of a city and […]

Weigh In: Week Three

When you’re on a diet, what do your goals look like?  Do you only think about your final goal?  Or, do you set small ones that you accomplish as it leads up to your overall goal?  Goal setting is hard for me and I think it’s complicated by not being able to imagine what size/weight/appearance […]

Express Meal-Pumpkin Spice Cake

Well. So, this is a little bit awkward to right as the feature is express meals and I’m leading with an item that isn’t a meal nor is it super fast, but before you think I’ve gone around the bend, I do want to spotlight why I’m adding an express meal feature to my blog. […]

What I Ate Wednesday#1

What I Ate Wednesday is a blog thing that Healthy Living Bloggers participate in. It’s hosted by Jenn over at Peas and Crayons. Most of these ladies are thin, at their ideal weight and probably exercise more in one hour than I do in a week. However, I thought there was probably some good benefit […]

Marching Band-And the Menu Plan!

So, the Princess started marching band this fall. I had no idea that it would mean that Big Daddy and I also started marching band, minus the marching. Our weekends are now comprised of shuttling the Princess to and from games and other band activities. I’m supportive because I know that the people who spend […]

Weigh In: Week Two

I feel as though, for the last few weeks, I’ve been working for the weekend and it’s a cycle I’m already tired of.  It goes like this: Weigh in on Friday (hope and pray I’ve been “good” enough to see a loss or at the very least no gain) Have a pretty good Friday as […]
