This blog originally started as a place to put the recipes that I have been trying on my quest to lose weight. I've decided to add some of my thoughts as well as some of the exercises I've been doing, and even some of the recipes that are just down right good. You'll find healthy recipes I've tried, and even some I haven't. I hope this will keep me honest, and I hope it will also be helpful to you!

Christmas in Pictures (Mostly)
We had a wonderful Christmas. We went to the Opryland with my family minus my sister and her husband/kids. We ate a lovely dinner at my house with my parents, opened presents that were situated under our very first Christmas tree, played Mexican train, watched my niece and nephew open gifts, helped aforementioned niece and nephew play with gifts, went to Kentucky to see Richie's family, had some awesome food there, opened more great gifts, and relaxed with family. We've since been to my nephew's 3rd birthday party, watched some football games, and donated about $1000 to Goodwill.
It was a wonderful holiday season! Here are some pictures to prove it!

A gorgeous place to go for the holidays... or get married at like hubby and I did 6 years ago!
My niece dancing in the same spot where hubby and I said our vows :-)
The view from our room!
Our first Christmas tree... Finn sure liked it!
One of my favorite Christmas gifts... a handmade T-shirt quilt made from many of my Kappa shirts. My momma made it for me - that's here holding it up. Hi Mom! Thanks for such a special gift!
