Free Forum Friday- Pardon My Dust

I’ve decided to change the layout of my blog. I LOVE the old blog and I’m going to do my best to get this new template to look like the old one. It’ll be slow going but I really want to make it happen. Part of the reason I want the change is that I […]

Blog the Weight Away – Weigh In Wednesday Feb 24

It was not a good week. I was surprised when I stepped on the scale this morning! I only made it to the gym once due to the kids’ stomach issues and I had book club Friday, couponing class and dinner at a friend’s Sat. Then Sunday morning Cadence slammed her head into my nose. […]

Blog the Weight Away – Weigh in Wednesday Feb 17

Last week I went to the gym 3 times. I went Wednesday night to Body Shaping. OUCH! She was telling us to tighten our abs while doing the exercises and I couldn’t find them to tighten them. Let me tell you, I found them the next day!! Thursday morning was my Biggest Loser workout at […]

Taste Test Tuesday- Country Bob’s Little Party Bites- Review & Giveaway!- Closed

A few weeks ago I got in the mail 2 bottles of Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce to do a review on. I’ll probably sound a little silly here, but I was really excited to find out they were located in Illinois. It’s cool to have a company from my home state! I was a […]

Menu Monday: 2/15/10-2/21/10

First of all, I can NOT believe February is already halfway over. How did that happen? Didn’t we just “celebrate” New Years Eve? So I’m still trying to get into the swing of Charlie’s schedule and my babysitting duties have been extended indefinitely. I still have some organizing to do to get back on track […]
