Sunday afternoon and evening is FOOTBALL time in our house.
Which is quite unfortunate for me because I don't really like watching football. BUT I decided to turn this time from a time to complain into a time to think about Super Bowl Party Snacks.
For those of you that don't watch football either and are completely oblivious because, like me, you only watch HGTV and the DIY Network, the super bowl is Coming!!!! Feb. 5, 2012
I do love a good Football Party...okay maybe just the snacks!!
I have the best and very affordable crowd pleasing snack. I first had this at my sister's wedding weekend in Florida. Her Mother in-law made them for lunch one afternoon, and then passed out the recipe. You are going to love these!!!

I have been thinking about February and the idea that most people think of it as the LOVE month. So I have decided to come up with fun/cheap special things each day for the month I can do for Anthony. I will share them on here as I go.
1. Special Breakfast before work 2. Mail a love letter to work 3. Bring Him Lunch 4. Send Him a love note/email 5. Clean out his Car...etc.
(If you have any fun ideas I would love to know about them.)
I love my sweet husband so much and I know he would say one of the best things I could do for him is to be praying for him. I have a list of things that I pray for him often but this month
I plan to pray each of these every day!
Here are my 26 prayers (that I stole from somewhere, not sure where)
Hope you join in on Praying for your Husband/Future Husband
Anthony and I have been on a "cleanse" for the last 3 weeks and today marks the first day of eating normal. The cleanse consisted of fruits, vegetables, fish, chicken, brown rice, beans and the Standard Process Cleanse Supplements. I am happy to announce that my jeans fit better!!!
It is amazing to me how much I think about BREAD, CHOCOLATE, and CHEESE!
I am on the look out for new and healthy snacks, while we stick close to our new healthy way of eating.
I found a very yummy and quite healthy recipe that I wanted to share
I really like Mondays!!! I am sure that it is because I don't have to battle the traffic and head to work after a relaxing weekend... which is making me very thankful even as I do the laundry.
Monday's for me are fairly typical...
Make a Smoothie for Anthony and I
Clean the Kitchen
Start the Laundry
Make our Bed
Make a cup of coffee
Check my calendar making sure everything that is planned for this week is at least slightly in my brain!!!
And my Favorite: Sit and Read a Bit with my coffee.
My mom gave me this really great devotional for Christmas that I am loving!!! (Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young) The author, using scripture, has written daily readings as if Jesus himself were talking to me!! It's great because the author is careful in keeping with the Character of Christ and all the promises he has already given us.
I have also decide to read Pilgrims Progress again, or start it and fully finish it!!
For some reason I have been thinking about that book a lot lately.
For those that are like me and have a hard time having a Quiet time because your mind is awake and going a million miles I have a simple trick that my dear friend Mrs. Kay told me.
It is Simple YET so profound.
When you sit and read always have a note pad and or your calendar near so that you can quickly jot something down without completely wrecking your time. Its inevitable that I will constantly be thinking of all I need to get done and how I am definitely going to forget something. If something comes to mind write it down and move on.
Later today(Maybe tomorrow) I am going to post a dessert I made this weekend that is ALWAYS a crowd pleaser and only has 3 ingredients!!! Super Easy!
I have been wanting to make a blog for a year and finally sat down and did it. It is in the making and late but i thought I would share one of my favorite quotes, by my friend Sarah, that i have hanging in my house. This is what I want my life to look like.
