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

malt crispie treats vert

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…

Mexican Spice Recipe

White Wedding Cake Buttercream Frosting

Ella Jumping on the Bed

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.

Weight

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…

Gingerbread Family Christmas

Gingerbread Family Boys and Girls

I have a sick little one this week, so most of our normal Christmas traditions have gotten pushed to the wayside as we simply try and keep up with getting her well before the big man in the red suit shimmies down our chimney. One such tradition is our annual Christmas picture, which hasn’t gotten…
