Monthly Archives : April, 2010


I don’t have any pictures of my breakfast or lunch yesterday.  Oops!  But I only ate a blueberry muffin and a steak & cheese.  Nothing crazy! My mom came to visit me yesterday so I spent the afternoon with her.  We enjoyed walking around Boston, even with the gale force winds blowing sand in our […]


Yesterday was a pretty busy day and a change from the Desperate Housewife lifestyle I’ve been living for the past 2 weeks. 😉 Quick yogurt blend for breakfast before I rushed out the door for an appointment.  Vanilla yogurt, vanilla granola, and Skippy peanut butter.  I normally eat flavored PB or AB so I wasn’t […]

And I’m amazed by how many of you are thriving!  I loved reading each and every entry for my giveaway.  You guys are so inspiring.  Doing great things […]

Flower Pot Muffins

I started the day with a bowl of vanilla yogurt, cranberry granola cereal, and a spoonful of Raspberry White Chocolate peanut butter. While running errands, I passed the Boston marathon finish line.  When there was a break in the traffic, I ran across Boylston, crossing the finish line for the 2nd time.  Even though neither […]

Missin my Kitten

When I was 6 years old, my parents bought 2 kittens for my brother and me.  I named mine Mittens and his was Kitty.  Mittens passed away in 2003 but Kitty kept on trucking. Yesterday Kitty passed away.  She was OLD, she lived 20 great years, and it was her time.  But it’s still sad […]

Southie Adventure

Saturday was such a nice day that we decided to venture over the bridge into South Boston to spend the day with friends. It was so relaxing to sit on Matt and Natalie‘s deck and sip on a glass of wine. We walked to the beach and Matt decided to fly his kite.  The ocean […]

Tremont 647

Friday morning started with some Pom Chobani with granola. I wasn’t overly hungry for lunch so I ate a few slices of banana bread and sipped on an ice coffee.  Our milk expired so I added almond milk.  I make my coffee this way from time to time, and I always enjoy it! Today’s outfit!  […]

Defying Gravity

“Something has changed within me Something is not the same I’m through with playing by the rules Of someone else’s game Too late for second guessing Too late to go back to sleep It’s time to trust my instincts Close my eyes and leap It’s time to try defying gravity…” “Defying Gravity” from Wicked On […]
