Today Krieger and I slept in. We snuggled Pickles-cat. We made a big breakfast, since it was almost noon by the time we got around to eating anyway. I started a load of laundry (we are woefully behind on laundry). Now I’m sitting in the home office, listening to TED talks on acupuncture for one … More A Regular Sunday
Each Monday I am going to post an affirmation for the week, to help get us going and feeling strong as hell all week long! This list comes from DorkChop’s post, which is awesome. Today’s #MondayMorningAffirmation is: You are empowering! This is a great one because it not only says that you are powerful, but … More #MondayMorningAffirmation
For this week’s #TooCuteTuesday, I wanted to talk about something that has been on my mind. I have been thinking about doing something that might be, well, a little crazy with my hair! I naturally have a strawberry blonde/ginger hair color, but have been super inspired by all the people out there with white/silver/grey and … More Hair Transformation – Going to BRIGHT Hair #TooCuteTuesday
For our chat this week on #wellnesswednesday, I want to talk about something that I find somewhat alarming. I recently found out that there are a number of “health” products that are harmful to us and to our environment! MICROBEADS. They are in everything. Soaps, facial cleansers, toothpaste. Everything. They are supposed to help exfoliate … More #WellnessWednesday Microbeads
A lot has changed since my last post over two years ago. Grumpelstiltskin passed, Glinda has made huge progress in handling her diabetes and CHF. I changed jobs and now work as a public servant in healthcare. Krieger and I bought a house last year Krieger and I got married this year. I’m working on … More Back at it!
As I had mentioned, Kriegers parents are not in great health, which is partly why I started this blog, to document our meals for them, and to help inspire those who have similar dietary requirements. Last week Grumplestiltskin was admitted to the hospital, and we’ve been scrambling to get everything in order to bring him … More Sorry for my absence….
Inspired by my friend Braddington’s post about sugar scrubs, I decided to give it a try. This was a great idea! Thanks Braddington! (Definitely check out her blog for some other great DIY’s!) I did not plan ahead and missed having my camera or my phone for pictures, but the process is so well defined … More Weekend in Review: DIY Sugar Scrubs
There’s something great about a turkey sandwich, especially after a long, lazy, hot day. It is hitting almost 90 degrees here, and we have the AC going full blast to keep Glinda and Grumplestiltskin in the climate they have become accustomed. We baked a few turkey breasts with an herb and mustard crust, and sliced … More Weekend in Review: Sunday Evening Turkey Wraps
Using alcohol as an outlet to stress is not a healthy way to handle stress. But, as we all know, sometimes having a drink or two on the weekend really makes your night feel special! We tried a new to us beer “Not Your Father’s Root Beer” from Small Town Brewery. And. IT. WAS. AWESOME. … More Weekend In Review: Draaaanks
