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!  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 🙂


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.  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?

Voting is Open. Help Pick my Blog Header!!

After playing around in Paint all morning and trying to create a header for my blog, I have become very indecisive on which to choose.

Just so you know, I have very little experience in ANY type of graphics software so as you are looking at these, please be nice and keep that in mind!!!

I am going to keep voting open until Tuesday morning when I will either

  • Choose the option with the most votes
  • or if voting is close, I will go with the one that appeals most to me. What I really mean is, if no one votes, I will be forced to choose one on my own!!

While I don’t want to resort to begging, I do want to ask my AWESOME blog reader to, HELP ME OUT HERE!!! I honestly don’t mind lurkers on my blog, in fact I LOVE and feel so grateful that anyone at all takes the time to read about my life and daily ramblings. But just this ONCE, I am asking you to come out of hiding and leave a comment to help me out. After that, you can lurk as much as you like ;-)!!!!

Here are the choices:

Time to vote!!! Which one of these should be my header display?
