Your mom said it. Dr. Oz said it. Now I’m saying it. We need to start our day with a healthy breakfast. Eating breakfast keeps our minds sharp for the day ahead, and keeps us from overeating later in the day. Plus, I just like to eat!
But lately, I’ve had trouble waking up in the morning and I oversleep. Plus my hubby is recuperating from an accident and I’m doing a lot of his chores before work that he normally did. That means I’ve been running out the door late for work with nothing on my deprived tummy…and she doesn’t like that!
Well, this year I challenged myself to become better organized when shopping at the thrift store, and I am on my way! I have been looking for a cross-body bag to carry with me (hands-free) on my thrift store adventures that will help me organize everything I will need to get the job done right!
I saw this great tip on the internet and wanted to share it with you. Use the cake mix bag instead of expensive frosting bags. The bags are made of a very strong plastic and makes a perfect disposable frosting bag. Next time you make cupcakes from a cake mix, be sure to use scissors to cut one end of the bag open. Don’t rip it open like I usually do. Save the bag, rinse it out, and dry it. Then clip a corner and insert a decorating tip inside. Source
Hmmmm…think I might know someone that will be happy to celebrate a day filled with gumdrops–Carol?? Yes, someone woke up one morning and decided that we needed a day to celebrate these yummy little sinful sweet treats!! Thank goodness we don’t celebrate them everyday, or wait, maybe some of us do!?
My husband and I, most years, celebrate Valentine’s Day with a dinner out together, careful to keep it within reason with the help of a coupon! I can remember Valentine’s Days of old when my husband was still trying to win my heart. A beautiful bouquet of roses would arrive at my office and all the girls would swoon over them and compliment him for his thoughtfulness and expression of love–always a romantic dinner to follow. Then marriage, a mortgage and kids–you see where I am going with this.
