New Stuff

Good morning!

You may have come to my page this morning and noticed a new header on my blog? If you didn’t notice, that is okay, too!! What is up now is very simple and hopefully, very temporary. Well semi-temporary I guess. I have hopes of getting someone to actually design a blog header for me but to be honest, I don’t know where to start. I don’t want to pay an arm and a leg, after all this is a hobby and nothing more!Β  I want it to remain simple but FUN so if y’all happen to know someone you can recommend, I would love for you to share their info!!

I also changed my “tag line” up. It used to read: “A healthy life is a happy life” but now it says, “Where family, food and fitness meet”. I sometimes felt stuck with the former and felt like I couldn’t stray too far away from all things health and fitness related. Though, obviously I did. A lot. Anyhow, I feel like I have opened up what I can write about and make my blog centered on everything, not just fitness. That will still be a big part of it but you know, I certainly don’t live my life focused on only one thing so I don’t want to write my blog like that either πŸ™‚


Saturday started bright and early for me because I had a hair appointment at 7:30am. Soooo early for a weekend but the lady I use books up quickly and weeks in advance so I pretty much take what I can get.Β  Though I like to sleep in on Saturdays, I have to admit, it was nice to be back from my appointment and running errands by 11am. Less traffic=much easier time getting things done!!

Here is the new ‘do!!

I had some blonde highlights added for Spring/Summer and I love it!! It brightens up my face and my attitude!! I really like super dark hair but I am coming to realize that it looks better on other people than it does me. I by no means should be blonde(been there, done that!!) but an in-between works well :-).

I have to share with y’all a delicious new “treat” I came across this weekend.


Chocolate chip cookie dough, Quest bar. O.M.G. This bar is G-O-O-D!!! I have been searching for it at GNC for a while now but they were always out. Luck was with me when I went in this weekend because they had just received a box of them. While I have had Quest bars before and enjoy some of them(some others, not so much) none of them to compare to this one. It tastes just like a chocolate chip cookie!!! And since GNC had a deal of Buy 3 Get 1 free, I stocked up!!


Did you design your blog yourself or hire someone to do it?

Obviously, I use free WordPress but I am ready to start customizing it just a tad.

Do you change your hair according to the seasons or do you keep it the same year round?

    I feel like I need a wordpress 101 lesson πŸ™‚

  4. Your hair is gorgeous!! Love the highlights. My good friends, Jeff and Marla ( did the theme for my site. They are incredible!! They also do website branding (so they could do headers and such) as well. My husband actually designed my header when I begged him for help last summer. πŸ˜‰

    Love the new look on the blog and your hair! I was really blonde and today went a bit darker with low lights. It was too hard to maintain and dropping $100 a month was not worth it! I hated the roots after 2 weeks!

    So glad I stopped by!
    Love the new “do” πŸ™‚
    I tend to go and get my hair cut on a whim and I color it myself most of the time.

  7. I would kill to have your long hair. My hair stays short because it is fine and just gets flat long. I am a stylist, so I typically mix my hair up. although I have been keeping my auburn base with tons of blonde in the front. It seems to suit me.:) I would love to do a blog but have no idea how to start one. Maybe you can help me out. πŸ™‚ xo pretty girl! OH you do not need botox! Your nuts!lol..

  8. And this post reminded me I need a haircut! I keep putting it off!
