New Favorite Breakfast

This one could give my beloved eggs and toast a run for it’s money!!!

Raspberry Chobani

Chia seeds mixed in

Perfect granola on top. I bought this granola from Costco and tried it for the first time today. It was so good! Perfect amount of clusters and sweetness. I will for sure be buying more of this!!!

Can’t wait to try this with different flavors of yogurt!


*sneaking back in*

Not even sure if I have any readers left…but I hope so!!! This summer has been so crazy with moving, vacations and having 3 very active kids at home all day. We had some issues with our house last week (a post for another day), my 3 old wound up with 3 stitches in his forehead on the same day…it’s been nuts.

We are getting close to starting school, and I think we’re all ready. Ready for the schedule, routine, and being with friends. We have a couple more trips to the sand dunes planned, a wedding and our 10 year anniversary coming up in the next few weeks to finish this summer off with a bang!


2 eggs over easy on toast

Herbal tea and a banana on it’s last leg


Salad Beast

Romaine lettuce base

Cucumbers, pickles, celery

Cheese and an olive oil vinaigrette

With a side of celery and an orange on the side

Getting ready to cuddle up with a book and then bed soon. Some days I wonder if I’m 30 or 90…

Leo’s Coney Island

One of my favorite spots to go for breakfast is Leo’s Coney Island of White Lake.

They have everything from oatmeal to amazing omelettes with anything you can imagine stuffed inside! The service is fast and friendly, the prices are perfect, and the food is awesome! No matter what I get for breakfast, I’ve never left disappointed.

Saturday morning my sister, mom and our daughters went to Leo’s for breakfast.

I had one of the their breakfast specials, two eggs, sausage and wheat toast. So good!!

Friday Weigh In #1 (5.6.11)

Since I haven’t weighed myself in nearly 2 months, I have no idea what my last weight was so this is a jumping off point.

Weight: 208.8

I am so excited, my sister and her daughter are on their way here from California and will be here later this evening, I can’t wait!!! The last time she was here was for my Dad’s funeral, so it will be nice to have a happy visit this time 🙂 I will be taking her to all my favorite foodie places and hopefully the weather cooperates so we can take the kiddies to the park.

Breakfast: Hope you’re not sick of eggs, because I’m not! This morning was a simple egg sandwich and sliced strawberries.

It’s been a busy day so far getting everything cleaned up, laundry done, etc. so we can have fun tonight when they get here 🙂

Happy Cinco de Mayo

Mexican food happens to be my very favorite type of food, any way I can get it, I’m a happy girl!! In honor of Cinco de Mayo I made a mexican pita pizza that was divine, but before we get to that; let’s deal with breakfast.

Breakfast: Some people have oatmeal for breakfast every day, I could have a variation of eggs and toast every day and be happy! Today was the same as yesterday, whole wheat english muffin and two eggs.

With a banana and Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger herbal tea.

Lunch: Mexican Pita Pizza. Pita bread, refried beans, black beans, mozz cheese and topped with sour cream and green salsa. So flipping good and filling!!! I also had orange slices on the side.

This isn’t just what I ate on Wednesday, it’s just the pictures I have of meals lately that haven’t made it to the blog.

First 5K

First, I want to thank everyone for your support through the past week and year. I really feel like I’m going to be ok and I’m healing. I have re-focused and it feels so good to remember the good times and the good memories rather than focusing on what happened.

The campground where we spend most of the summer is hosting a Start of Summer 5K on June 11th. I don’t know what came over me, but I signed up! I’ve never ran or even walked a 5K before, so this will be interesting, but I’m pretty excited!!

Breakfast: Steel cut oats (chia seeds, cinnamon, coconut milk) with Justin’s Chocolate Almond Butter on top.

With a grapefruit on the side and some hot herbal lemon tea because look what was going on outside. Thankfully, it was melted by the afternoon.

Lunch: Flat out pizza (marinara sauce, broccoli, cheese, tomato slices)

And kiwi. I love kiwi!

Dinner: Light & Fluffy Egg Noodles, Kielbasa (tossed together with italian dressing) and a pile of green beans.
