I found this recipe on one of my favorite food blogs Eat Yourself Skinny! I made it just as the recipe called, no substitutions and it turned out perfect. It was a great snack for football this past Sunday.
Plus a serving is only 3 PointsPlus, can’t beat that!
I found a way to combine my love of art, music, and crafts. This past weekend I created a work of art using lyrics from one of my favorite songs by New Found Glory. The song: Tell Tale Heart.
1 Canvas, Mod Podge (I used Matte), X-Acto knife, paint brush, magazines (or newspaper), painters tape
Step One: I taped off the edges of the canvas using painter’s tape. I wanted the edges to remain white. Step Two: I found some neat magazine clippings and used Mod Podge to adhere them to the canvas. Then let dry.
Step Five: After it is dry, peel off the vinyl letters using the X-Acto knife, if needed. Step Six: If desired, use one more layer of Mod Podge over the artwork.
Enjoy your new masterpiece.
I use a Canon Rebel T1i. It’s a prized possession for sure. I’m still a budding photographer by all means, but with some simple filters I’m starting to feel like I have some skills!
having time to spend with my friends
cuddling with Maggie
having a rewarding job
thought of graduating from Grad School in December
spending time with family
developing my photography skills
cooking (goes with eating healthy)
having manicured nails (even if I do them myself – still puts a smile on my face)
I was having a pretty rough day yesterday. I thought to myself instead of complaining, write down what will make you happy. I figured I can at least do something(s) each day that’ll put a smile on my face.
My list is simple.
It will take me to stop doing things that don’t increase my happiness and replace those items with one from my list.
What makes you happy?
I think Maggie, the pup dog, likes to remind me just which rules we follow around here. I was so politely reminded of that this week when she wanted to cuddle real close right after I survived another CrossFit workout.
Thought this was too funny, and yet true.

1) My new Kate Spade purse came in the mail. It makes my feet do a happy jig.
2) Apparently, my stats class is going to require three different colored pens to keep my notes straight. Geesh!
3) Pretty drink to finish out the week
4) We had a lazy Sunday with movie marathons, dip and chips.
5) I started CrossFit two weeks ago. If you haven’t heard of it, YouTube some videos. It’s pretty awesome and pretty brutal all at the same time. Here’s me post workout.
Happy Weekend y’all!
