Pebbles On The Beach

Here it is the middle of April. We usually have already been to the beach but with us both having new jobs, our vacation time is limited. Fortunately, I work for an accountant so he set aside April the 16th as a tax holiday and gave us girls the day off. Nick was able to get off too so we jump at the opportunity to head down to the camper. 

Once we unloaded the car, and got everything set up and in order, we headed out for a walk on the beach. It was rather chilly with the temperatures in only the 60s. The wind made it even cooler. We walked about three miles. During our walk, I kept seeing these little burlap bags washed up on the sand. They were tied tight, but curious me had to see what was inside. 

Inside each bag were little rocks or pebbles. They seemed to have been in the water for a while as they were covered in sand that had settled into the bags  over time. 

I didn’t keep them. I put the pebbles back into the bags and returned them to the sand for someone else to find. I did not see any on our way back so they must of either washed back out into the ocean or someone else came alone and scooped them up. 

I just wonder what the intentions were or if they were just washed away from someone on accident. 

We ended the day with dinner at Hamburger Joes and a trip to Walmart for a some camper needs and few snacks.
Now we are back at the camper. We have had our showers and now relaxing a bit before we call it a day.

I can’t wait to see the sun tomorrow and enjoy all day on the beach. This will be our only full day as we will head back home on Sunday. I do not get a real vacation until August. That is just too long to wait. I plan to ask for a couple days off in June. I do not know how well that will go but it’s worth a shot.

Pro Keto Shakes

Summer is coming and that means it’s time to start thinking about cold drinks and smoothies. I have fallen into some bad eating habits since December and it’s beginning to show. I plan to replace one meal with a smoothie or healthy shake. I need something that is low in calories and high in protein. 

I think I may have found the remedy to loose the extra pounds that I have put on in the past few months. I am currently giving these Lean180 Pro Keto shakes by Skinny Jane at try. 

I am surprised at how delicious and creamy they are. They do not have that gritty or chalky taste like other protein shakes. I am also impressed at how easy they mixed. You just add one scoop of powder and 6 ounces of water or milk of your choice with a 1/2 cup of crushed ice. Place it all in your favorite mixer cup and shake. The powder dissolves quick and does not leave clumps. I didn’t even have to use my blender. 

They come in 3 different flavors; chocolate, vanilla and salted caramel. I chose the vanilla because I think there are more “Mix in options” to change the flavor such as strawberries, raspberries or blueberries. However, I liked the shake alone with no other flavor than the rich vanilla flavor it has to offer. It was like having a cupcake in a cup. 

Skinny Jane Lean 180 Pro Keto Shakes have a lot of benefits to help you lose weight and not feel hungry.

All opinions are 100% my own.


I remember back when I was a little girl. I always had bad dreams. I remember just about every night, I would wake up in tears and go to my parents room. I would stand on daddy's side of the bed and stare him awake. He would let me get in the bed and he would cuddle me until I dozed off then I would have to go back to my room. 

Mom would place a Bible under my pillow at night and told me it would keep the bad dreams away. I had less nightmares but would still have them. I’m sure they tried everything to keep me out of their room. They finally got where they would lock their door at night. I remember standing on the outside of it crying until one of them would come tuck me back into bed. I was not spoiled, I was absolutely frightened at night by my dreams. 

I still dream but they are not as scary anymore and I am now, what is called , a “Lucid Dreamer. Meaning I can control my dreams. I guess I fought them long enough to have this power. When I am having a dream, I know I am having a dream and can control the outcome. Most of the time I wake up a soon as I realize I’m dreaming. Other times I can make a bad dream a good dream just by realizing it’s not real. Some Lucid Dreamers can decide on what thy want to dream about. That would be pretty cool. If I could do that, I would go on vacation every night. 

I am debating on keeping a “Dream Journal”. It would be a great way to jog my memory and learn what’s going on in my mind. It could also be weird and comical. I mean, last night I dreamed a baby Elephant jumped on me while my husband was chasing a chipmunk that was tearing up the yard. Yea, that’s way out there. But I also have some serious dreams. Vivid dreams that I can’t seem to get out of my mind. Sometimes I have good dreams and do not want them to end. It would be interesting to write all of these dreams down. I would also like to know if I have the same dream more than once or if any of them come true in the future. 

Have you ever heard of a dream journal? 
Do you think it would be a good idea?

I’m Still Here

In case your wondering,  I’m still here. I think this has been the longest I’ve ever gone without writing a post. 

Blogging is on mind every day but I have had trouble finding any time to sit down and post. I have to be in the mindset. My life is crazy right now. 

I work 12 hours a day a few times a week. I work in an accountant office full time from 9-5 then head to my side job at a department store after I get off and work til 9 at night. 

The side job started out as a “temporary seasonal job” during Christmas and somehow I’m still here. In fact, I’m working a slow and boring position tonight and I am currently typing this post from my cell phone while greeting customers at the same time. Now that’s multitasking! 

I tried to quit but they asked me to stay and just fill in when someone lays out. Lately that’s been a few nights a week and almost every weekend. When I finally get time at home, I spend it cleaning and doing laundry. then I zonk out. I need to find time for myself again.

When I get home tonight I have to jump on the phone and do a call in to the home shopping network and share my success  story with Nutrisystem.

It’s been over 5 years now and they still ask me to share it which I enjoy in hopes it will inspire someone. 

Meanwhile, I’m trying to get it together and get back to blogging. I’m trying to find myself in this thing called life.
