Sleeping babes

Every night I check in on my girls before I head off to bead. Sometimes, I feel like a child in the middle of the night peeking at the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve to see what Santa has left me. My children are definitely the best presents in my life EVER.

I took these pictures the last few nights:

Night one:
(Notice all her toys have bows in their hair or on them somehow)
  Thought I'd grab a picture of this sleeping babe while I was at it:
that position doesn't look comfortable at all.

 Night Two:
 love the pile of bows by her head
 Night three:
no crazy piles of stuff on her bed, thank goodness, but this is another thing she does when she is supposed to be sleeping, she'll lay out her outfit for the next day. I can't complain  about her doing that. But i think it's funny she's got her shoes laid out and her headband and any accessories she plans on wearing that day.
Sometimes I really wonder what Boo is going to grow up to be. A hair stylist? even though she doesn't want her own hair done. An artist? since she spends so many hours coloring? A fashion designer (she's getting pretty creative with her outfits she draws)... So far those are her biggest hobbies. can't say sports is going to be her forte but she might surprise us. I don't know. Today we hung out with a bunch of youth from church and realize it will only be a short amount of time until she gets to go to youth conference.  oh time flies. sigh.

skinny fat

I was talking with a couple of friends tonight about exercise and I mentioned a blog post I read that has helped inspire me to keep going and to realize that I shouldn't be afraid of building muscle....I still remember a term she said "skinny fat" those who are skinny but don't have muscle. I'm still afraid of having bulky muscular arms but I'm more afraid of flabby soft arms. Anyway, in case those friends look at my blog, this is the post from Our Best Bites ( a food blogger!!!) About her weight loss journey.

Funny how I did this post after the sweet treats post huh? Like I said before I'm working out but I still haven't forced myself to change my eating my sweets oh so much.

sweet treats, the good life

It's been awhile, I guess I don't have much going on. Just life and it is good. When people ask me how I'm doing, you know the normal question when you see someone, it feels great to say "good" and realize that life is good and I feel good.

Anyway since I don't have anything to really share I thought I'd share something that is often on my mind....FOOD! :) here are three recipes that are yum yum yum.

MILKY WAY CAKE  or should I say better than sex cake because it's b better than that cake...heath bars please, give me MILKY ways and Carmel and nougat filling in my cake.

Stuffed French toast. We tried this one on our anniversary and I was pleasantly surprised. This is just bread with cream cheese ( mixed in some powdered sugar with it) and fruit, roll it up, dip it in eggs, cook it and then dip it in sugar and cinnamon. We even tried it with nutella but I like it better with cream cheese...of course.

Lastly Frozen Hot Chocolate. This super easy and simple. 1 cup milk, 2 cups ice and hot chocolate mix. Simple as that. Now I can imagine it will taste fantastic with some cream on top but still a nice summer evening treat.

If you love sweets, I'm sure you'll love these treats. Hope life is treating you all well too.
