I have 22 weeks until Day 1 of the Atlanta 3 Day. That’s 148 days. In my fundraising account is exactly $900. I have a pending donation of $114 that will post in about 4 or 5 weeks from a fundraiser at Jump 2 It on May 14. If we did everything right (which I’m […]


I took pictures on my training walk last Sunday with the intent of posting them here Monday. But our lives were turned upside down on Monday, and still haven’t entirely settled back down.

I owe a total of 3 new recipes. I have 2-ish desserts. One is a recipe, one is just too freaking cute not to share. I’m making both for a work thing on Friday. First is Creamy Pineapple Pie. I love this for summer events because it’s no bake, and very refreshing. Next up, I […]


Yes, I’m finally somewhat back on track. Though, this week is another Kraft adaptation. I took their Fiesta Chicken Pasta recipe, and left out a few things. Why? Well…ummm…our sour cream was bad and we had no Italian dressing. So I decided to try it without. And I only just now saw that I was […]
