My Animal Plate Wall


I’m so excited to tell you about my animal plate wall! But first, remember a few weeks ago I told you about how well I was doing with my New Years resolution? My resolution to get healthy, by eating better and working out? I had been doing really well, and I was so proud of myself…until last week.

I had been starting to tone up, drop a few pounds, and had been facing one of my biggest challenges which is eating anything green. Last week however, my insomnia was at an all time high (or is it low? Whichever means worse). When I sleep for less then 2 hours a night for multiple days in a row, my body freaks out. It doesn’t want to go to the gym, and it seeks out any junk food within a 5 mile radius that isn’t nailed down.

Add to it that this weekend was the end of Lent (to which I had given up chocolate), and the minute it was over I ran to Walgreen’s and got my favorite Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, Milk and Cookies, and I ate the ENTIRE pint of ice cream in one sitting. I was literally sick afterward.

Then the next day was Easter, where I had high calorie, bad for you food … for not one but two family dinners.

Yesterday, sitting on my counter top was the leftover homemade pecan pie. Pecan pie, for anyone who doesn’t know, is my kryptonite. So what was I doing at 9:00 last night? You guessed it.

So today my friends, I am starting over.

Towerish Shelf Thing

Happy Monday everyone!!!  I hope you all had a great Easter weekend! The unnamed child had Friday off from school, so we watched the second to the last Harry Potter movie that night (Book 7, Part 1). Now, I know that I was the last person on the planet to read the Harry Potter series, […]

Aqua Striped Dresser and How the Easter Bunny Was Dead

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Crepe Paper Easter Basket

Today is a good day my friends! Spring has finally sprung here in Kansas, and I get a much needed haircut. I feel like going for a big change, but I have two trips coming up in the next couple of months, and I’m not sure if I want to take the risk. The last […]


Pinterest Party Friday!!! #55

Parisian Painted Side Table

Happy Hump Day everyone! It’s a pretty gloomy, rainy day here, but I planned on staying inside to paint anyway. I’m going to put a roast on the stove and stay in my comfy painting sweats — and may even take a few snuggle breaks with the pups now and then. I’ve been starting to […]
