I’m trying not to lose my momentum with my project completion here.

I Gained 5 Pounds…

…just looking at the picture of these bars. Oh. My. Word. I am so making these as soon as my husband is done with his challenge diet. 2 more weeks to go! I mean, seriously. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars? Each word you read just makes it better and better. And that doesn’t even [...]

If you’ve been reading my blog lately, you’ll know that we are now sponsoring a little Tanzanian girl through Compassion International. My desire to do this was brought to a head as I read the blog posts from a group of bloggers who recently went to Uganda on a Compassion trip. One of those bloggers [...]

My husband took Friday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday off from work. Usually we make plans for these times and then get very little, if anything, done. Well, not this time!
