Getting Prepared for Easter

I really miss the days when Mom stayed up all night making me and my sister a new Easter outfit. She let us pick out a pattern and material from a local Mary Joes cloth store. We never went without a new Easter dress and shoes for church.

Now that I'm older its up to me to get my own new outfit. I'm sure if I asked her, she would still make me one but I think she enjoys her freed up evenings before Easter. After all, her and dad have to be up early Easter morning to prepare breakfast for the church that will take place after our sunrise service.

My daughter will be home this weekend and I'm sure we will end up at some Mall or Target store looking for her a last minute Easter outfit. I gave her some money a few weeks ago to pick her out something new whether its a new church outfit, work outfit or something fun for Summer.
I don't sew.

All the new outfit stuff is just a tradition. It celebrates "new" beginnings. After all, a girl needs an excuse to take advantage of getting something new. I mean, a girl always needs new shoes!!

A while back I picked up a purple dress from the Good Will. It fit so I'm wearing that. Its sleeveless so I hope the weather will break and give us some warm air.

Since I only spent 3.00 for something different to wear for Easter, I decided to spend some play money and have my hair done. I usually just get it cut or trimmed. I use a root touch up every so often to keep the gray from showing my age.
This time I decided I wanted something different. I wanted to go with some mushroom colored highlights.

Two hours, a box of foils, and several dollars later, I have some new color in my hair. It did not turn out nothing like the color I wanted. The mushroom color is a taupe, khaki or light brown tint. My hair now has Orange highlights. I'm going to go hide under now.  I wish I would have gotten more cut off too but I was tired and just wanted out of the chair. I was hungry and I wanted to get home.

The new highlights do not look bad, it's just not what I expected, but with my hair being dark, it was hard to lighten. I mean, she is not a magician, she's a beautician. Sometimes I forget.
Give me time. It will back to one color as soon as its safe to add it.

Now I have some baking and making to do.


If you know me or have been following my blog, then you know my how excited I am about loosing 50 lbs. on Nutrisystem. I used to talk about it all the time. You can even find my whole journey HERE.  I still share some of my tips on social media and my success story can be found on the Nutrisystem page. You may have even seen my picture flash up on the TV behind Marie as she speaks. If you blinked, you missed it. I love sharing my weight loss success story with everyone. It’s been a fun journey and a life changing experience.

It’s been a little over three years and people keep asking me if I still eat Nutrisystem. The answer is “YES” I still eat Nutrisystem food. I love it that much! Its so convenient and takes the guess work out of eating right. It’s like having my own little chef. 

So, here is where I stand on my weight loss journey 3 years later.

For the past year or so, I have been on the Nutrisystem Maintenance Plan. With this plan, I eat most foods on my own using the nutritional information I learned from being on this diet. “I always felt weird calling it a “diet” since it was so easy and delicious!”. 
I pay a low annual price for this plan. This keeps me a member of Nutrisystem and allows me access to counselors and special savings. I order foods from the A la Carte menu as I need them with a percentage off and free shipping. I will order an average of two or three weeks worth of foods and make it last a month while I eat most of my own foods. 

I have found that I have put on a few pounds but am keeping it in control. I like the size I am now. I’m still in a size 4 or small, continue to have energy and my health is overall great! Nutrisystem always has my back. I love knowing how to control my weight and I know what foods and snacks work for me and which ones work against me. 

One of my favorite flex breakfasts is Avocado toast and a side of fruit. 

Here are a few tips I would like to share for those that are at the point to maintaining the weight you lost with Nutrisystem. I am not going to tell you what to eat, you already know that. I want to give you some advice on some issues that I have fought against and where you need to be careful.

FLEX MEALS- Meals on your own can easily be turned into “cheat meals”. You may say to yourself “Ill eat anything I want and eat Nutrisystem food all day tomorrow”. 
THINK- This can easily become a habit and you will gradually gain without realizing it. You need to be in control of your eating. So, watch what you put on your plate. 
SOLUTION: Eat a small healthy serving. Eat slow and take small bites. Try taking laying your silverware down between bites. 
Make sure you eat 4 servings of vegetables, drink lots of water and get enough calories with the help of healthy power fuels and smart carbs between meals. 
Do not eat in front of the TV. It can lead to binge eating. 

PORTION CONTROL- Do not come home from work in the afternoons and open your refrigerator or pantry up and decide at that moment to eat your own meal. 
THINK- You will start grabbing everything you see. You will nibble while preparing your dinner because lets face it, you are hungry.
SOLUTION- Plan your meals. Make them ahead of time and use portion control containers.

EATING OUT- Eating out can be wonderful yet intimidating to a dieter. Over eating comes easy, because lets face it, eating out tastes so good! 
THINK- A regular plate at a restaurant averages two meals. Even a salad can put you over your limit. 
SOLUTION- Limit eating out to no more than twice a week. Avoid drive thrus where you are forced to eat in the car. 
Order a meal off the “A La Carte” or “Lite” menu. 
If you get a full dinner plate, ask the waiter to bring you a box at the beginning of your meal and put half away to take home. Use it to spice up a Nutrisystem meal later. 

ALCOHOL DRINKING- We all know that drinking alcohol is not a healthy choice but if your out with friends and want to enjoy a drink, avoid starchy beers and high calorie drink mixes. 
THINK- Drinking can also cause you to munch on the wrong foods. 
SOLUTION- Settle for one 4oz glass of wine. Some wines are as low as 75 calories per glass. 

SNACKS- Oh here is my weakness! I love sweets! Fortunately, while being on Nutrisystem, I do not have the cravings like I used too and its easier to say no to cakes.......Never mind, it’s not! I love cake. Put a piece in front of me and I’ll eat it! This is were I have failed while on the Maintenance plan. 
THINK- A piece of cake can have the same calories as full meal!
SOLUTION- Eat the cake. JUST EAT THE CAKE!!!!!!!
Or be strong and take a sliver. Maybe scrape off the frosting first. You can always keep a Nutrisystem snack close by and eat that instead. They have wonderful brownies, woopie pies and chocolate cake that will satisfy you just as well!

I blog for fun and all opinions and ideas are my own. Everyone is different and what may work for some may not work for others. If you have questions about Nutrisystem or your food intake, Nutrisystem counselors are always there for help 1-800-5585-548

Bath Vapor Balls

I’m one of those moms that can come up with a solution in a tight situation. My daughter calls me “resourceful”. Find me some twigs, and I’ll make a rope. I will make a heating pad out of a sock and rice. You get the idea. I can just figure ways to make things work with whatever I have at hand. So, when I found a recipe for vapor bath balls, I could not figure out why, in my whole mommy life, have I never thought of this! During cold season, I’ve used menthol on Kleenexes, and made cotton ball sniffers, but this? I should have thought of this years ago.

I have been lucky to escape the cold and flu in over a year but I know a lot of you have been down with the crud. Or maybe you just need a fresh eye opening shower. Like when you bite into a York peppermint patty, you get that sinsat.......Never mind. 

I’m going to share with you this easy 3 ingredient recipe to make medical history..... Not really, but you will love these if you ever get a stopped up nose or develop a head or chest cold. They are safe for kids, however, I would limit the exposure just in case. They also will not harm your tub, shower or drains. So before you head out to the drug store, grab a bowl, Vick's VapoRub and some cornstarch. I’m gonna share with you this easy and fun way to make a feel good aroma.

 Bath Vapor Balls

1 cup - corn starch
3 tablespoons- Vick's VapoRub (or other mentol gel)
3 tablespoons water
2 drops Food Coloring (optional)

  • In a glass bowl and a fork, toss and mix VapoRub and cornstarch until it starts looking pebbleish. (Is that a word?)

  • Drop in tablespoons of water one at a time while mixing. (You can add food coloring at this time but its optional.)
  • If you pinch the mixture, you will now see how it sticks. (It will still just look "pebbleish").
  • Now use your hands and form balls as big or little as you like. (I was able to make four palm size or 3 inch balls.)
USE:  Place a ball in the floor of your shower or tub. As the ball melts, it will release a menthol vapor to help open up those sinuses.
I have a bowl of these sitting in my room and my room smells like menthol. They are that strong!
STORE: You can place them in a plastic bag or container for keeps.


NOTE: I am not a doctor and this is simply a home remidy to feeling better during a cold. Please consult a doctor if you are not feeling well.

I was inspired by the Original recipe found HERE.

People Are Rude!

Sometimes I wonder if people are more rude than ever or if I'm just turning into an old fogey.

We went to a restaurant this past weekend because I really wanted some crab legs from Duffy's Seafood Shack. Don’t let the word "shack" confuse you. This place looks like a shack but the food is delicious and the prices are high. It’s more expensive than I usually will spend on a meal but since we were on a little short vacation, we thought we’d splurge a little. 

The restaurant was not quiet as crowded as it usually is and we were seated fairly quick. We placed our order and nibbled on some peanuts while we waited for our food to come out. As soon as our food arrived, so did a group of ladies. Twelve of them to be exact. They looked high class as they were all dressed in designer clothes and fancy pocketbooks. 

They were really having a good time and I think that's great but they were so loud! They were terrible! Seriously. They screamed at the top of their lungs back and forth at each other and laughed like hyenas. I could see other people doing eye rolls as they too had to hear the obnoxious behavior. 

We were sitting at the table beside them. I could not hear my own voice much less Nicks. I think I swallowed my food whole as I was a nervous wreck. Not only were they loud but we had to hear all about pet surgeries, PMS issues and bad pedicures! I was disgusted. If our food was not already at the table, we would have asked the waiter to move us.  

Needless to say, we did not get to enjoy our 50.00 meal. The girls got the stink eye look from me as we were leaving. Nick told me to leave it alone. It was obvious they wanted to make a scene and wanted someone to say something to them. It was not my place to say anything, or was it? I understand they were having a good time but really??? People are just rude!

What would you have done in this situation? 

Weekend at the Beach

Nick and I took a little trip to the beach this past weekend. We kept putting it off while watching the weather. We wanted to go when it was gonna be sunny and warm. We did not make our final decision to go until Wednesday. So Thursday I worked half a day, then we took off on a four hour drive to the coast.

It was St. Patricks Day weekend with lots of festivals, car shows and parades around. We didn’t go to any though. Nick is not a fan of being in crowds. If we have to fight for a parking spot or bumping shoulders to hear a band, we will turn around and leave. So we just stayed in the campground and enjoyed the little peek of sunshine on the beach.

Here are a couple cars we passed on our walk. We saw many old cars everywhere we went because there was a big car show going on in the heart of Myrtle Beach. We also passed many of them on the highway on our way home as they were heading out.

The campground did have a golf cart parade on St. Patricks Day. We were sun bathing when I seen them riding by. I jumped up from my beach chair and ran across the dune to catch a shot of them as they passed by. I barely got there in time. 
“Don't blink or you'll miss it”. 

We had a pretty good time even though the wind made the 72 temperatures feel like 42. 
We took some long walks, went out to dinner and relaxed some on the beach. 

Then this happened. 

Yes this was a pig on the beach. This guy walked his pig every day.  It was hilarious and everyone would stop and stare or walk up and pet it. 

For the record, Here are a few things you do not say when you see a pig on the beach:
“Wow, what a ham!”
“I smell bacon”
“We are having a BBQ, want to come?”
“You can come early”
“Make sure the pig is dressed”

Ok, I know you animal lovers out there do not think any of that is funny but we had fun joking about it all weekend. The pig didn’t seem to mind. His little tail wagged and a smile was always on it’s face. 

The weekend was too short and now its back to work. We will not be going back again until May. I sure hope its a lot warmer then so we really can have a BBQ. 

Sunday Song

Come To The Table 

 We all start on the outside
The outside looking in

This is where grace begins.
We were hungry, we were thirsty
With nothing left to give
Oh the shape that we were in.
Just when all hope seemed lost
Love opened the door for us.
He said come to the table
Come join the sinners who have been redeemed

Take your place beside the Savior now
Sit down and be set free.
Come to the table
Come meet this motley crew of misfits
These liars and these thiefs.

There's no one unwelcome here, no
So that sin and shame that you brought with you
You can leave it at the door
And let mercy draw you near.
Just come to the table
Come join the sinners, you have been redeemed

Take your place beside the Savior now
Sit down and be set free
Come to the table
Just come to the table 
To the thief, to the doubter
To the hero and the coward

To the prisoner and the soldier
To the young, to the older
All who hunger, all who thirst
All the last, all the first
All the paupers and the princes
All who fail you've been forgiven
All who dream, all who suffer
All who loved and lost another
All the chained, all the free
All who follow, all who lead
Anyone who's been let down
All the lost you have been found
All who've been labeled right or wrong
Everyone who hears this song
Come, come to the table

Oh eh, come join the sinners you have been redeemed
Take your place beside the Savior
Just sit down and be set free
Oh come on
Just sit down and be set free
Come to the table
Come on now
Come to the table
You're welcome here

This is one of my new favorite songs. Our church will participate in the “Lords Supper” today. That’s what we Baptist call it. 
Some call it communion. It made me think of this song. God loves us and wants us all to come to him.

My daughter keeps raving about these little dough covered balls of ice cream her boyfriend introduced her too. She gets them at her local Harris Teeter.
She is always talking about weird and different foods she tries so I didn’t pay it much mind. 

When she was home this past weekend, we took a trip to Harris Teeter. This being the highest price grocery store in town, we do not visit it much, but they had an item I wanted that no one else has. They also had the ice cream things shes been talking about and she urged us to get a box to try. 

Looking in the freezer section, I seen several flavors of what is called “Mochi”. I chose the salted caramel flavor.

These are are a Japanese made dessert and they are exactly as she described. Little dough balls with ice cream inside. I sorta of snarled my nose but thought, “why not” I mean they are ONLY like $6.00 a box!”.
But I had to try it. I mean, They looked fun! 

There are six in a box and each one is about the size of a ping pong ball. 

She and my husband watched me intensly as I bit into what felt like a ball of playdough. They waited on a response. With powdered lips and a full mouth, I said “Hold on, I'm a little confused right now”. 
I took another bite. “Not too bad”. 

I refused to share my Mochi and told them to get their own to try. I think I liked it. It was different.
With only 110 calories, it made the perfect snack that satisfied my sweet tooth for the evening. 

I would like to try the other flavors if I come across a coupon. But for now, I’ll stick to my ice cream in a cone and my “mochi” from Nick. 

Have you ever tried anything like this? 

Acrylic Pour- JojisArt

Today I want to share with all of you some new art in town. My sister has opened an Etsy shop to sell her new found talent. “Acrylic Pour canvas art”. I get to see each one before she post it on her site. She will text me a photo after each one. We both will oohhh and ahhh at the turn out.

My sister is sort of like me in being creative. Her taste is a little more expensive than mine though. I am more of the thrifty and resourceful one. 
She is talented and a great artist. We get this from the women in our family. Our grandmothers always were crafty and always making things. Our mother was and still is crafty and a professional seamstress.  

With these pantings, she can not plan an out come as each one turns out different. They are all a little surprise as she does her magic. I dont know how she does it, but since it’s called “acrylic pour” I assume she pours it on their somehow. 

Here are few of her pieces. 

These will look great in a home or office. She makes different sizes. Each painting is one of a kind made with Acrylic Paint on a light weight cotton canvas then topped with a seal of thin varnish which also adds shine. The paint rolls over the edges so it does not need a frame. 

If you would like to own one of these original peices of art,  You can purchase one at JojisArt . She is always adding new ones as she creates them on her time away from her regular full time Job. Her talent does not stop here. She also makes beautiful wreaths which you may see added in her shop soon. 

So stop by JojisArt and take a look around.

Just Mommying

I got to mommy this weekend. I miss mommying.

I am proud of my daughter making it out on her own. She started working since she was sixteen and hasn't stopped. She currently makes more money than I do and enjoys living with a sorority sister about 30 minutes from home. She has been out of the house for four years now and thats not counting four years of college before that. She is now 25. 
But not a day goes by that I do not miss her in the house. Other than getting on each other nerves, we get along like best friends. We still text or talk every single day and she visits a couple times a month. (Used to be once a week). I’m getting better with that. 
Sometimes she will come over just to sleep because she misses her room. 

For the past week, she has been fighting a nasty chest and sinus cold. I made her go get checked. If she had been home, I would have had her in the doctors office at the first rumble in her breath.

This is the kind of things I’ve heard from her every day this past week:

“The doctor said It was not the flu but just a bad cold”
“What can I take for this?” 
“I have to do this and that, but I dont feel like it”
“The doctor told me not to go to work, but I did anyway”
“But I wont breathe on anybody”.
“I can’t taste anything”
“My chest hurts”
“Do I really have to wait four hour until the next dose?”
“Whats the temperature for a fever?”
“ I can’t relax”
“My arm hurts like it has been shot”.
“Whats this goo in my eye?”
“Now my boyfriend is sick”
“I can’t sleep and I can’t seem to fight this off”.
“Im going out with my friends even though I dont feel like it”
“Is a whisky sour the same thing as a hot tottie? 

I finally said ‘come home, you need your momma!”

So, she did and I got to mommy her all weekend.
When she came in the door Friday night, Nick had his homemade chili waiting for her. Then I made her a warm lavender salt bath to relax in.
I took away all the cough syrups and cold medicine she brought home. (I kid you not, she had a bag full).
I handed her the vicks vapor rub, had eucalyptis misting from the defuser, made her that hot tottie and sent her to bed. 

She had a good night sleep and felt better the next day. 
I made sure she had a nice warm breakfast each morning including avocado & egg toast and homemade fun fetti waffles.

We took her out to dinner Saturday night and since she was feeling better, I took her to church on Sunday. 

She left here feeling about 80 percent better. Now she can go back to adulting.
I hope next week is more comfortable for her.
I think she just needed to slow down and get some rest. 
But most of all she needed her MOMMY!

Sunshine and Snow

I was just bragging last week how warm it was around here in North Carolina. I spoke to soon.
Thursday I woke up to temperatures in the 30’s. I have already put my Winter clothes to the back of my closet and packed my boots away  actually gave my boots away to the local thrift shop. I was done!

While I was at work I peered over to my tiny window of my office and noticed blue skies and sunshine. Then I seen puffy white flakes dancing in the open air. I said to myself  “what? Is that snow?”  I made a post on my facebook to let everyone know it was snowing (as if I was the only one that saw it). I had to get the news out. Then I ran outside to get a photo of the falling snow (you know, as proof) because no one is going to beleive me. I mean, it has been warm all the other days.. 

As I positioned my little 6s to snap a photo, It stopped. I didn’t even get a picture. I had no proof.
Everyone started sending me messages that I must be going crazy. However, there were some that commented on my post that they too had seen it snow for a brief moment. 

My sister sent me a photo. Thank sis! It was of the ONE little cloud that passed through like a rain cloud, dumping a powder of snow across some of the viewing area. 

Yep that was the extent of it.
Crazy huh?
Don't laugh at the exitement. We don't get to see much of the white stuff around here. 
Now its back in the 50’s on this beautiful Saturday morning. 

Crochet Bath Pouf

Some call it a bath puff. Some call it a bath pouf,  and some call it a loofah. Whatever you want to call it, it’s a washy thing.

I usually purchase a two dollar nylon bath puff at Walmart. I love them. They are easy to use. When I'm finished washing, I rinse it out and hang it to dry until the next wash. After a few weeks, I can toss it out and get a new one. 

I had a request the other day. After seeing one I made in my Etsy shop, a customer asked if I could make another color? “Sure!” I said. 
Then she responded, “Great, I will need four plus 4 matching washcloths by March 16th”. I did a face plant in my hand and looked over at my husband. ‘I have a crochet request for a batch’. He smiled and said “thats a good thing “right?” Well, yes and no. Yes I'm thrilled by the request, but there is no way I can get the order filled in a week. Heck, I don't even remember how I made the bath puff that’s been sitting in my shop for months. I thought she just wanted one. Working full time only leaves me with a couple hours at night to get any crocheting done. I had to decline the request. 

Later the next evening I grabbed a ball of yarn and began making a bath puff. I figured I needed to refresh my memory on how to make one and how long it will take. It took me three evenings to complete this bath puff! It is super easy to make but time consuming. I thought I was never going to get to the end of the last row and ran out of brown yarn half way through and had to add another color I had on hand. Now not only do I remember how to make one, I also remember why I never made any more. Ha!

These are better than the store bought kind as they hold up longer, suds up better and can be thrown in the washing machine instead of the trash. This saves money. But then again, what’s two dollars right?  I’ll stick to buying the cheep kind and put this one in my shop. Maybe it will sell. I might make more if I get bored or have some time on my hands, but I am currently working on a blanket.  

For the fun of it, I’ll share the pattern for this puff. 
I consider this a large one as it is approx 17 inches around.

You can use cotton yarn which is my favorite because I love all things cotton, 
but I used Acrylic for this one. Acrylic will not mildew, dries faster and is light weight. 

If you can read crochet,
Here goes:

It’s That Time of Year

It has been beautiful here in the Carolinas this weekend. Last week we had temperatures in the 80’s, but this weekend was a little cooler with the strong winds blowing through.

I got a text from my husband Friday. “I’m going to be outside cutting grass if you need me”. 
Now that he has started, he will have to continue cutting the lawn every week. The weeds were gettng tall and the onion garden could feed ten thousand people. “It’s that time of year again”. 

We are finally able to get our afternoon walks in. While walking trough the neighborhood, nothing screems spring like the cherry trees blooming and daffodils laughing. Then that smell! Those stinky Bradford Pear trees.  “It’s that time of year again”. 

Thank goodness we had some rain last week. I hope it keeps the pollen levels down as we enter into Spring. The pollen puddles looked like abstract paintings with swirls of green as the fallen pollen is washed away. “It’s that time of year again”.

I’m wide awake at 7:00 in the morning. The sun is beaming through the windows, and the birds are singing a melody. “It’s that time of year again” and I love it.

I plan to go to the garden store next weekend and purchase a few plants to grow. I want to grow another egg plant and maybe some cucumbers or squash. I have a plan to do another patio garden using planters. I can’t hardly wait to get the patio cleaned and set up for the warmer months. 
I just love the warmer weather and longer days. 
And by the way, The beach just called and said, “It’s that time of year again”!

Happy Sunday.

My Brown Eyes Green

I was born with dark brown eyes. They went well with my full head of black hair at the time.

I had dark brown eyes until I hit my 20's. I got pregnant at twenty-one and gave birth to a beautiful green eyed girl. After becoming a mother, I noticed my eyes were no longer that dark brown and more of a hazel green like my mothers.

Since 1991 I blamed my daughter for the change in my eye color. Some days they still look brown but not dark brown. They are sometimes yellowish and when I'm in the sun they turn a bright green. Most of the time my eyes are just a permanent hazel.

What color do you see? Brown or green?  

They have even mentioned it at the license bureau "Ma'am, It states that you have brown eyes. Do you wear contacts?". I replied "No, It must be the lighting. I was born with brown eyes and prefer to leave it that way". It also states that my hair is brown, will I have to change it one day to read gray?

Changes in eye color is normal. (This I read) 10 to 15 percent of causcassions will experience eye color changes while races with darker eyes see little to no changes. Eye color is caused by the amount of Melanin that is produced. As we get older, the pigment Melanin reduces causing eye color to lighten. Most brown eyes will turn hazel green or honey yellow. This is permanent. Just like hair. It looses pigment and will turn lighter or gray the rate of this can vary due to genitics.

OK, so I guess I can stop blaming it on pregnancy right? Nope. A woman looses Melanin while pregnant so this could have played a big roll in the color changing.
Of course! Because, I'm not old or at least I wasn’t at twenty-two!

Other things that can cause eye color changes, but are not permanent are sun exposure, stress or mood changes.

Honey can temperarly enhance your eye color- It is a natural bleach agent.
Spinach will temperarly brighten your eyes.
But did you know that adding fish to your diet regularly can cause permament color change? 

Notice I said “Color change” not neccesarly a “different color”.
In reality, your eyes really do not change to “different” colors. Depending on your genitics our eyes will naturally lighten and makes brown appear golden or have a greenish hue. Remember, I said my mother has hazel eyes? 

Do you still have the same eye color you had when you were young?
I bet you just looked in the mirror, didn't you?
