Healthy CAN Be Yummy

Who knew?! 

As a Southern girl, I love my Southern food! Fried chicken, mashed taters, fried green tomatoes… fried, well anything fried, really. Unfortunately, this Southern girl’s physique does not appreciate all those fried delicacies!

So… enter my Pintrest quest to find meals/ diets I can deal with. I found tons of info on the 21 Day Fix. Enough info to create my own system without paying the $80 for the program.

I love the basics of the program. It’s very smart system. I won’t list details here, honestly for fear of trouble. However, just turn to Pintrest! I promise there is all you ever need on there!

Butthead has been creating *UH-maze-ing* meals for us! Friday night was a work of art! Personal pizzas made from a whole wheat tortilla, a sauce he made from fresh avocados and onion, fresh bell peppers, tomatoes, onion, top round steak, and mozzarella!

It will make you wanna slap Papa John! Promise! And its healthy! How awesome is that!

So, here’s hoping I stay this excited about my new cuisine! Hopefully I don’t end up falling for the tempting call of a deep fryer any time soon!

Later lovelies!

I was Awarded! Pt 2

Big thanks again to Anxious Mom for nominating this blog for the One Lovely Blog award.

For this one, you are supposed to share seven facts about yourself, and then nominate 15 other bloggers.

*I am seriously afraid of pool drains.

*I have an addiction to thrifting.

*When I laugh too hard, I snort… which makes me laugh harder, leading to more snorts.

*My new favorite show is Alaska State Troopers. I’m facinated!

*Mosquitos love me. I hate mosquitos. I live in the south. Big dillema.

*Butthead makes fun of me because from time to time I fumble into a deeper southern accent. “What fur…hafta…notta…wudja…daggum…watcha-call-it” I think you get the picture.

*I could listen to Meghan Trainors songs all day long. So dang catchy!

Dork Points

Let’s do the math:

Going to mall with friends:
Safe, no points.

Going into Build A Bear with friends:
It’s okay… they have kids- still no points.

Squealing that there is a “Toothless” to build at BAB:
OK… 5 DORK POINTS

Actually making “Toothless” for YOURSELF at BAB when you are 28 years old:
*facepalm* 100 DORK POINTS

Realising that the detachable wings for “Toothless” will fit on your cat and you squeal in delight after placing said wings on your cat:
INFINATE AMOUNT OF DORK POINTS.

For the curious, yes… yes, this is a true story. I did… I really did!

image

*facepalm* *kanye shrug* *sigh*

I never said I was grown. I am merely shaped like an adult…haha.

Inflated Ego

I might have been strutting around on Easter like a little chicken fluffing her feathers!

EVERYONE- and I mean, EVERYONE told me how PRETTY I was in my outfit! 🙂 *see previous post, “Rebound” for picture*

I loved the attention, I won’t lie. My family and friends lit up and gasped before telling me how pretty I looked. I love it! I haven’t heard that in a while, so my ego needed that boost.

Then, of course, God or Karma… or a bit of both had to have the last laugh as I fought all day to keep from busting my ass in 3 inch wedges. Once again I cannot escape my nickname…

image

Sigh, forever a tomboy, I suppose. Gimme my flip-flaps!

Rebound

I am excited for Easter! I get to spend some time with my family. My Dad’s brother, Uncle S, his wife and kids are probally the family I grew up the most around. Uncle S’ s son (cuzzo D) is the closest thing I have to a sibling. He really admired my dad and got his love of fishing from my dad.

I love spending time with them. Cuzzo D and his lady have a sweet baby girl who is days away from 2 and his lady is ready to pop with baby girl #2! I always feel at home around them. I think that’s why I am so excited!

I even bought a new (well, new to me! ) outfit. Got the dress, the shirt and shoes for under 20 bucks at Goodwill. I am not ashamed to say I shop there! I love Goodwill! If you have problems with that- go on somewhere! 😉

My Easter outfit! I feel like this will really put a pep in my step and hopefully get me outta this funk!

Hope you have a happy Easter, lovelies!
