Eat.Live.Be Week 4 {Recipe: Chocolate Malt Krispie Bars}

Technically this… Plus this… Should not equal this… (which is down 2 pounds from my weigh in last week of 179). I did a horrible job on my Weight Watchers points this week, but made up for it with keeping up with my exercising. Even got up at 6am on Saturday to exercise… I purposely […]

Differences {Recipe: Triple Chocolate Malt Bread}

I dropped my kids off at school today, got in the car and practically cheered. I love having my kids home, but for the past three days there has been nothing but bickering and meanness coming out of their mouths towards each other. It’s funny how when you have kids, you have the first one […]

Eat. Live. Be. Week 3 (Recipe: Recipe Girl Fish Tacos)

An Ended Love Affair (Recipe: Hershey’s Toffee Bit Cookies)

It was great while it lasted… I know it was only yesterday that I was claiming my true love for all things snow. Yes, I threw around the word “Happiness” and how I was “present” with my kids. I even said “beautiful” and “Kansas” in the same sentence, which I believe is a first for […]

Snow Day

Eat. Live. Be. Week 2 Update (Recipe: Crispy Oven Roast Chicken)

One of my very first posts many moons ago on Dine & Dish was about how I don’t “do” snow. I’m not a fan. I think it’s pretty and all, but I’d rather sit in by the fire, snuggled up with a good book, looking out on it falling gently on the trees rather than […]

Ella Jumping on the Bed

White Wedding Cake Buttercream Frosting

I had the grandest of plans for blogging the first week of the year. I had ideas running through my head, cool things to implement and fun stuff up my sleeve. You know what happened though? Life… yep. Good old life. For the first time in ages, I’ve actually felt like a stay at home […]

Naked in Times Square and Eat. Live. Be.

Naked in Times Square. That is exactly how I am going to feel after sharing this number with you, but I’ve got to. I am horrible about keeping myself accountable so I am putting this big old number out there for all of you to see, and I am going to continue to do it […]
