Turkey week is here…

21 Nov 2017 In: holidays

Thanksgiving is a few days away and I am so excited.  Thanksgiving is my all time favorite holiday… I don’t know if its because of all the food we eat and make (which probably is the reason) BUT… I love the smells, the feel of the holiday, the colors and coming together with family and friends and being thankful of one another.

I start preparing my Thanksgiving meal weeks in advance and have a countdown of when to prep items and purchase as well.  This year my husbands family is coming in town and we are all gathering at my in-laws house.  We set-up our Menu weeks ago and of course we all claim what we are bringing for extravaganza, because we always have more than enough food and PLUS nothing is better than Thanksgiving leftovers.  I love Thanksgiving so much that because I’m not hosting it this year I am making a small turkey for us to have for our house so I can do so many things with after…

Here’s a handy guide for food to have (whether your making it all or having others bring) to go by if you are hosting Thanksgiving at home:  Read the rest of this entry »

Crescent Breakfast Ring

2 Nov 2017 In: Recipes

This crescent breakfast ring will become everyone’s favorite weekend breakfast choice!

If it was possible to live on carbs alone I think I would do it?  of course the ultimate ending answer would be that I wouldn’t end up being 500 pounds if I did…

I remember my mom would make these crescents rolls with cheese inside and bake them.  They would be the absolute best things to eat for breakfast before school.  I make the same things for my kids. Read the rest of this entry »

What to do when you feel stuck…

24 Oct 2017 In: Thoughts

One Way signs drive me crazy.  I feel that they are so confusing especially when you need to go the other way and realize that you can’t get back there unless you go all the way around or just keep going straight.

I guess life is the same way…

I started blogging in 2009 because a friend told me that I loved food so much why not talk about it.  Of course at the time I thought they were crazy.  I was like “Why would anyone want to hear what I have to say about food?” “I don’t know how to do that,” the biggest question was… “What if no one reads what I write?

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Always Discreet. The opinions and text are all mine.

I am participating in a sponsored campaign hosted by Always Discreet®.


We are delighted to be working with Always Discreet® on their sensitive bladder campaign – giving a voice to the one in three women who suffer from bladder sensitivity in silence.

Stay Dry with Always Discreet #PeeHappens

Why do we as women shy from talking about certain things? Why are we afraid to talk about our bodies and all the wonderful, amazing things we are able to do as women? I mean, for example, we are the ones who have been given the gift of childbirth. Women are! That in itself is an amazing gift bestowed upon us to pro create and continue life. For me I was always taught that ladies need to act a certain way and be proper and such. Of course over the years that still stands but with much more personality… LOL!

There are so many things that we are told as girls growing up. “Be polite, be strong, but don’t be abrasive. Be good, but don’t let people walk over you. Be well mannered and disciplined, but don’t talk about embarrassing things outside in public.” I think the list could go on and on and on… my head is spinning just thinking about all of them!

After having three kids, my bladder definitely has a mind of its own. I mean after pushing three kids, out your lower area is never the same. If I laugh too hard, sneeze or even cough hard I find that I leak on myself. I mean it’s human nature! Why should I feel embarrassed by something that is not in my control? I used to shy away and be so afraid if someone found out after my first when this would happen. Now, after three kids I’m like, “Listen if you make me laugh too hard, I’m gonna pee on myself… and I’m OK with that!”

I mean I’m only getting older and with that my body is changing whether I like it or not. Always Discreet Liners are great for light stress incontinence and these kind of episodes. Before I found these I had a few very embarrassing moments, with Always Discreet® those episodes are history. As a liner it’s minimal protection but for me it’s perfect.

Always Discreet aims to change the way women think and talk about bladder leaks. Did you know 1-in-3 women haves bladder leaks? 1-in-2 African American women 18yrs+ experience bladder leaks but only 1-in-9 use incontinence protection. Always Discreet wants them to know this a normal part of life, not something to be embarrassed by or a topic to avoid. Always has feminine, discreet bladder leak protection products that can enable women to live their lives to the fullest and without compromise. We would like your help to support Always Discreet’s mission to get the word out so women can feel
comfortable, confident, and in very good company.

Don’t Let Bladder Leaks Run Your Life!

All women at some point in time will encounter this issue once or have an ongoing bladder leaks… Please do not feel embarrassed to share your story or feel the need to keep it to yourself. You may just find that person who is in your same shoes dealing with the same problems as you! There are lots of us out there who use this discreet protection and should NEVER feel embarrassed about it. Always, the global leader in feminine protection, is revolutionizing the way women manage their sensitive bladders with Always Discreet to give women the protection they really need.

Always Discreet® liners, underwear and pads are curve hugging and offer extra protection with their of Double Leak GuardTM barriers to help stop leaks at the leg, where they are most likely to occur. They also have an innovative Odor LockTM technology that neutralizes odors instantly, and its RapidDryTM technology turns liquid to gel. Keeping us fresh and dry!

It means that its a time to reflect on the past year and remember how we started in our journeys. 2016 was a year of new things personally and professionally… my oldest child started High School, my middle child — only daughter– started Middle School, and then of course trying to balance life with a toddler.  Then we throw in working at a different school, purchasing a business with my sister, Sparkled Pink {we’ll talk more about that as the week progresses} and really making the decision to go all in on my baking business, Yummy Shop {stay tuned}.

If your head wasn’t turning yet it is now! 🙂

Having these past two weeks off for winter break not gave me time to reflect on the past year but to think about what I wanted 2017 to be all about.  I mean we always say, lose some weight, work harder, spend time with family, yada yada yada…

I think sometime sits just a little more than that… like finding inner peace or just trying to be happy.

A friend of mine and fellow blogger, Kristen (Dine & Dish) is definitely a master at trying to bring joy and happiness in her life and all that surround her.  She and Bree (Baked Bree) are sharing a great daily challenge called Rock Your Happy 2017!  It is a chance for anyone who wants to join to make it a pint to make 2017 a happy one, a great one, a blessed one.  It’s the little things that we sometimes forget that cn make a difference in our days and we get so busy and overlook them.  Well these ladies are making it a point to bring joy to us all and remind us to not forget about those little things.

The first day, January 1st, of course we had to choose 1 word that we wanted 2017 to be about.

My word is…

FEARLESS! New Year means New Goals to be Fearless in my relationship with Christ, in my business, in my family, in change, in asking for what I want in my life, in my community, in my life!

Follow me on Instagram and so many others at #rockyourhappy2017!

Join me and many others in the Rock Your Happy Challenge!  Let’s choose to be happy 🙂

What’s your word for 2017???
