Great Beauty Finds....

Got on to visit some blogs after dinner and came
upon Honey Brown Sugar's blog 
and totally love all her takes on beauty and found 
some awesome recipes on homemade lipgloss, which
I'll definitely be trying in the near future.. she 
showed her readers how to give your hair beautiful 
wavy coil curls..which I really love. I've been trying 
to find a new hair style and looks like this one I will 
be trying to wear on Sunday. My dh has been really 
tired of that bun look and so am I. so I'll try it and 
post up some pics. on how it turned out. I might not
have the same conditioner she uses on her hair. So let's
hope that my Dove conditioner will work miracles
for me...

I got my kindergartner to school this morning at 7:45 am.
Got back to cleaning the house, organizing all our receipts,
blogging and will be heading out later on to grab lot of
moving boxes to put away all the stuff we won't be using
for right now. Work has been pretty slow so moving
might be right around the corner..ughh..

~ Eating too much sweets during the day 
  while I'm at the computer and no exercise. 

~ snacking after 10pm..

~ Not drinking that much water like I use to. 


The changes I've made.. slowly but surely..

~ Weight at start of Challenge: 281 pds. Jan. 2, 08 
~ Signed up for the MM Challenge, National Health 
  Body Challenge to get my Free 30 day pass to 
  Bally's Spa & Fitness.

  been drinking China Slim Tea also after every 

~ Walking at 5 am while family is sleeping. 
  Walking after dinner. started with 2 blocks
  now going walking four blocks.(slowly but surely)

~ Keeping a food journal and watching my portions. 

~ Since I've been short on cash I will start on these

  started and have never finished.

~ Now serve/eat dinner at 5 or 6 pm.

   if I've been great. A little piece is better than denying
   yourself and then overdoing it later. 

Friday 01/02/09 Ideas and happenings

So I woke up to more snow this morning and a
sunny day. I found out last night that someone
had broken in to our car and smashed in the
windows in the passenger side. This all happened
when my husband went to Portland last night
to drink kava with his buddies and there
were 4 other cars that got their windows smashed
in too. yes..wrong time at the wrong place.

So that changes my plans for going shopping
today with the kids. I'll be waiting it out until
dh gets back to stay with them so I can run
out and get the ingredients to make my
sample cake. I've had several full size samples
of Enfamil baby formula sent to me by mail
with the $1/1 - $5/1 coupons..Just recieved
Nestle baby formulas also with a $8/1 coupon
and have thought about using that as my center
piece inside the baby diaper cake, maybe I
could just insert the coupon in there and just
white out my name, ..just an
idea. Let me know what you think.
I'd love to hear your ideas..

I just asked the kids to eat cereal for breakfast
and I'll fix them tomato soup with grilled cheese
sandwiches for lunch. For dinner, they're
just going to get Tater Tot Casserole, salad and
Cherry sugar free Jello for dessert..yes,
it's the one from The Duggar them, too..:)
Don't worry, I got the recipe for you too.
I just lowered the amount enough for our

2 lb ground turkey cooked, seasoned, drained
3 2lb bags tater tots
2 cans cream of mushroom
2 cans evaporated milk
2 cans cream of chicken
Brown meat & place in large cass. dish.
Cover with tater tots. Mix soup & milk together.
Pour over top. Bake at 350 for 1 Hour.
(One of Daddy’s Favorites!) Makes 2- 9”X13” pans

FYI- I put in a whole bag of Green Giant Frozen Vegetables to
make it healthier..any choice..the kids like broccoli and mixed vegetables variety

excited to start things anew this year!!
I've been between my blogging and 
baking bread older daughters
went out dancing with my little sister, 
Meliani and her dh, Hola..My oldest son
Ami is at my little brother's house

little ones. We had planned on attending
our ward dance and these two fell 
asleep by 7 pm. So we stayed and just
watched movies, blogged and baked

and may it bring you all that you've 
wanted and more...

God Bless,
