Meal Plan Monday and Writing it All Down

Remember when I said I was going to rock out my last three pounds? And I had this great plan, and I knew that if I just followed it, I’d be home free before the end of October? Well, I haven’t been following it. And now I’m four pounds away from goal weight. But I […]

2 Ingredient Bagels Will Change Your Life

In the Weight Watchers community, 2 ingredient dough is life. Folks use it to make pizza, pretzels, cinnamon rolls, and of course bagels. I discovered 2 ingredient bagels from Connect, and was instantly hooked! Regular bagels are around nine points, and 2 ingredient bagels are only three points. Three point bagels!

Two Years of All That Life Stuff!

Yup, I missed my blogiversary again. Which is crazy because it’s also my wedding anniversary. Sorry Eric! I’m guessing that I scheduled my post ahead of time to publish on September 13th.

Iced Chai and Lorelai

Just a moment, sitting in a coffee shop with Lorelai. Drinking an iced chai, watching her play with a puzzle. She asks me to help her. She makes it a game. I love watching her play. Sometimes happiness is just a good drink and good company. Sometimes happiness is an iced chai and a Lorelai.

I’m Pretty Sure My Dad Invented Iced Coffee

When I was growing up my dad drank everything over ice – beer, wine,, coffee, you name it. He used a large glass stein, filled it with ice, poured over his beverage of choice and then stirred it with a long iced tea spoon. The sound of ice being stirred around a glass, is the […]

An Ode to Pumpkin Spice Lattes

I was sitting at my desk, when the door opened and Eric said, “Summer is officially over.” It was a strange thing to hear, as Eric is not one to speak to seasons often. When I turned to question what he’d said, in his hand I saw a shiny beacon of pumkiny goodness: a Dunkin […]
