I hate to say it...

I guess it's better to say it than to say nothing at all....

I'm (kind of) on a blogging break.  This wasn't intended, but I just realized I haven't posted in over two weeks!  I still love all my friends in the blogging world!!  But, in an attempt to become healthy again and lose some weight, I've added "working out" to my already busy schedule.  This leaves no time to blog right now.  But, the good news grad school classes are ending in a week!  After that, my husband and I are taking a much-needed vacation. Then I'll have time to blog again...and cook decent meals again!  I have so many recipes that I want to share, so I can't wait for the summer so I can share them!  Stay tuned....I'll be back!!!

My Busy Self and Some Special K Protein Meal Bars

Between now and the end of April, I have a gazillion things to do! I have 4 papers to write, 6 homework assignments, and an exam. Plus, I have cakes to bake. We are also giving my brother-in-law and his fiancĂ© a shower this weekend. Then, Chase’s birthday is next week and I want to plan something special for him!

Sometimes I feel like I’m going crazy because I have so much to do, but really….I wouldn’t have it any other way! It’s the way my life has been for about the last 4 years, and I’m getting used to it! Everything I do is rewarding and I love it!

With that said, I may not be able to blog as much as I’d like in the next few weeks, but I’m still here reading comments and occasionally visiting other blogs! I plan on posting a few more photos from our trip this week!

Now, I wanted to share my latest food addiction with you. I’m absolutely HOOKED on these Special K Protein Meal Bars! They have 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. And they are SO GOOD! Since I’ve been so busy lately, I’ve been eating these either for breakfast or for an afternoon snack...or sometimes both!! I just grab a couple as I go out the door every day! My favorite flavor so far is peanut butter, which is pictured here. They have several flavors and I haven’t tried them all yet! I’m looking forward to trying the strawberry flavor. I actually ate my last bar yesterday and thankfully my hubby got paid today so I can stock up on more!!

I'm Back and We have a Winner!

Hope you all had a great week! I'm back from our road trip! We visited family in Kentucky and traveled up to Ohio as well! We had a great time and can't wait to go back! The land is very beautiful there! Much different from the flat land here where we live! I wanted to share a few pictures from our trip!

Here are the kids at the Ohio River. We were in Ohio. Kentucky was just across the bridge.

Here’s a view of the Ohio River from Maysville, Kentucky! We were standing at an old train station. The restaurant you see in the background is where George Clooney’s parents eat frequently.

And finally here’s a shot of downtown Maysville.

Now, here’s what you've been waiting for….our winner….I chose a winner using I was surprised that it chose the 2nd comment!

Congratulations to Call Me Pretty for winning the Yoplait Yogurt “Nourish Your Inner Goddess” Giveaway!!

Hope everyone has an awesome week!  Enjoy the warm weather!!

Happy Easter!!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter!!  It was such a beautiful day today and I took lots of great pics of the kids!  I love days like today.  We had a nice dinner with the family tonight and now we are packing to take a little road trip!  I've been extremely busy for the last week and I'm looking forward to things calming down at the beginning of May!  I get a much needed 3-month break from grad school!

I will be posting a winner for the Nourish Your Inner Goodness Giveaway as soon as I get back!  Thanks to everyone who entered!! 

Enjoy your week!
