Good Health ~ Disney Mickey Shaped Veggie Chips
{A healthy review.}
I keep singing M I C K E Y M O U S E...

Good HealthMy kids absolutely love veggie chips! They come in all shapes and sizes and are crispy delicious. When we were asked to try Disney Mickey Shaped Veggie Chips I looked forward to my kids trying them.

We are mostly an organic family so most of our snacks are good-for-you treats. Lots of fruit, cheeses, yogurt and VEGGIE CHIPS! They are easy to pour in a bowl and serve with grapes and bananas and they are perfect for on-the-go snacking. I love hearing the kids munching on veggie chips instead of knowing that they are eating "junk" food that's loaded with sugar.

School will be here before we know it and I’m glad that my kids will be snacking on Disney Mickey Shaped Veggie Chips.

Heart Bread

...eating a plain piece of bread IS NOT called lunch.

I know you are busy outside playing and want to hurry and eat but it's not getting past me one bit.

Add some Sunbutter or a piece of ham with mayo even banana and almond butter works for me.

Now you know.


Sara Lee Snack Cakes ~ Peanut Butter Creme Cakes
Yummy in my tummy.

Sara LeeI’m all about the peanut butter and chocolate combo. Yes I am. Chocolate and peanut butter just go hand in hand. So when Sara Lee invited me to try their new snack cake I jumped up and did the chocolate and peanut butter dance. YAY!

Four of my favorite things all joined together in one tasty treat.

I went on vacation.

Folly Beach, SC

I'll be catching up on reviews ASAP.  I promise.  I know I am behind...however it is summer and I have kids to entertain.

And I got a job.  A real job where I wear certain clothes and leave the house.

Bonus:  I get a paycheck.


We don’t need no stink’en gutter guards.
{What my kids have taught me while bowling.}

Bowling on July 6, The Three Amigos

School has been out and I’m not lying when I say this but I was looking forward to having my girls home for the summer. “Yeah yeah, but I bet they’ve been driving you crazy?” Nope, we’ve been having a great time. We really have been. When I took them bowling during spring break I learned about the summer bowling program at AMF so when the program started we got the both girls a pass and {of course} one for me.

It’s kind of bit me in the butt because for years I couldn’t get my family to bowl with me and now that I can get them to bowl, my back will not let me have a fantastic bowling form. UGH!

We’ve had so much fun bowling a couple times of week. Lovely O and Ninja Gurl love bowling!! They love that they are getting better with each roll. They don’t even mind the occasional gutter ball.

While I have been teaching them to bowl I haven’t let them use gutter guards because I believe they need to “roll” with the punches. Pun intended. I can remember a day when the kids that performed well in a sport where the only ones to get a blue ribbon instead of everyone getting a trophy for playing.

Shrug. It just confuses me why we do this? Just so there are no hurt feelings? I didn’t always win at field day and not getting a trophy didn’t ruin my life. Yanno? I feel the same way with gutter guards and know the kids may get disappointed that they get a gutter ball but it only makes them better.

I just encourage them and let them know that a gutter ball doesn’t mean failure that they just have to work a little bit on aiming and throwing the ball a little bit harder.

They learn the game and they get their very own trophy in time, a STRIKE.
Seeing their smile is worth it all. Lovely O and Ninja do get so happy when they get a spare or strike - better than Christmas morning.

{getting all warm and fuzzy}

What my kids have taught me while bowling:

  1. The bowling alley serves the best food.
  2. The more bowling balls we have on the rack, the more fun we have.
  3. Gutter balls are horrible...walk it off.
  4. Even though the game room stinks they still want more quarters.
  5. No matter what the score is we always go home laughing planning our next bowling trip.
  6. Always carry a pair of socks in the van. You never know when you may end up at the bowling alley.

I’m really having a great time with my kids and they seen to be having a great time with me.

Honey for Christmas we all want our own bowling ball. {gentle smile}

Plackers {Flossers for kids.}

Plackers Flossers

I know how hard it is to get the kids to brush their teeth and it’s like pulling teeth to get them to FLOSS! Bad pun intended. Taking care of your teeth an any age is extremely important or you will have dental issues. As a parent with four kids I get so tired of having to threaten the kids to floss and brush. UGH. I’m really glad that Superdad takes over with the girls when it comes to flossing and brushing of the teeth.

Holding regular floss is a bit difficult for tiny hands so I love plastic flossers, they make flossing so much easier for kids and even adults.

I am not pregnant.

Diet. Me diet?? Why I never! I've always been tall and slender with nice boobs and no ass. I was okay most of the time about not having an ass, shrug, I was just skinny. Even in high school I probably weighed 100 pounds, soaking wet, with my white socks on and my Birkenstocks. {We can save the sock with sandals talk for another day.}

AND talking about never thinking I’d need to diet - my nickname in high school was TWIG which was given to me by my best friend because her name was also Michele and it made telling us apart much easier! I can still hear that beautiful woman yelling TWIG all over the place.

I’m pretty sure I may have felt I look fat in school because isn’t that what all teenage girls believe but I never thought about dieting or not eating. I absolutely love food too much. I grew up in south with homemade southern cooking, need I say more.

In my wildest dreams I just never thought I'd be one to struggle with weight and even after having my kids the weight just melted off on its own. That and giving up the Mint Oreos. It had to be the cookies for sure that was holding me back.


After I turned 40 I ended up in bed with a back thing and I’ve been dealing it with for two years already. That and count having a hysterectomy in my thirties. Double whammy for Michelle.

So here I am, a 42 year old weighing in at 141 pounds. I started this diet journey on June 6 and I weighed 147 pounds. It's be extremely difficult for me to get below 140. I will get to 140.2 then go back to 142 then 141 then 142 then 140.6 BUT to see 139.something on my scale is something I have yet to see.

It bums me out.

I started Adkins on June 6th and have been pretty adamant sticking to the diet albeit a few slips ups.

Hannah's birthday cake, Superdad's homemade strawberry pie for his birthday, the homemade ricotta cheesecake I make last week, that box of granola with raisins cereal, those chocolate chips with the almond butter...

Last week after making the homemade ricotta cheese with a pear and grappa sauce I headed to my Mamaw's house to have everyone there eat the pan of cheesecake to get it out of the house. It was delicious! While there I was able to visit with family and all four of my kids and even sweet sweet baby. It was a nice time and I was excited about looking thinner and feeling secure about the few pounds I have lost.

Was still feeling it some the next few days.

Until my Mamaw shared a recent conversation with me.

{This happened after leaving my Mamaw's house that day.}

My uncle to my Mamaw: Michelle's pregnant.

Mamaw: No she is not.

My uncle: How do you know?

Mamaw: It would be a miracle. She's had surgery, hysterectomy.

So there!! No, I am not pregnant, I just happen to weigh a few extra pounds in the middle.

I'm off to throw that skirt away that I was wearing that day and eat a salad.

I have now shared reason #12 for me going on a diet.
