Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
if you were on social media, especially Facebook, do you ever see those ads that pop up based on different things that you've looked at? It won't surprise some of you to know that a lot of the ads that show up on page have Minions!
In the past month, I ordered one minion shirt and my husband ordered me one for Christmas. Mind you, I did hint slightly in order for myself and tell him, and said "thank you for the great Christmas gift." He laughed but check out this great shirt, "Minions in my veins, Jesus in my heart."
As you think about what you are thankful for today, ask yourself, "What do I value and cherish in my heart?"
Share one thing near and dear to you...
Today is a day when those in love celebrate their love. Then there are those who love each as much as those doing something special, but are more relaxed about this date and Hallmark holiday.
As you probably guessed, my honey and I are the latter. We try and celebrate each other throughout the year rather than going over the top in one day. Not to mention, if he spoiled with me flowers, they are 50% cheaper any other time of year. Make my coffee on the morning and I'm a happy girl.
I share this because after listening to pastor's message this evening, because today is Ash Wednesday, his message related to our thoughts for today. "Keep it simple!" I spent a snip-it of my afternoon at the local food pantry to help out before heading home so my bread would be oven fresh for the soup and bread dinner before the service. After a meaning service, an evening snuggled in to watch the Olympics is a nice ending.
Each of our relationships are unique, just like us, as individuals. Celebrate your love in a way you and your honey enjoy. Take time this Lent to draw close to God and keep it simple.
I'm not a "Nail" girl or known to have pretty nails, mostly because I don't have patience to let my nails dry. BUT after attending a Color Street Nail Party, my desire and ability to have nice looking nails has been changed. My nails are styling now.
These nail strips are 95% wet polish and apply to your nails WITHOUT heat and applied in 10 minutes or less. If I can apply them, anyone can. Trust me, I'm not too good (or patient) with painting my nails but now, thanks to Color Streets Nail Strips...I look like I know what I'm doing and take time and money to have manicures.
My friend, Laurel, is a consultant now. This is both fabulous and dangerous. Fabulous because I can easily get my hands on a new set, hence the same reason this is dangerous.
As if the professional look isn't enough, they have special designs for the holidays. Check out the St. Patrick Day designs...
Color Street is a home party, so yes, I'm having an online party and yes, if you order, I might earn Nail strips at a discount. But if you decide to try these, you'll be hooked too. Maybe you'll have a party and earn some nails yourself...
My daughter's sets have last 3-4 weeks, mine not as long because I want to change them up before it's time. This is a good problem to have, right?!

Thanks for listening to me ramble about nail Polish...who knew I'd blog about this.
My favorite thing to do at the gym is walk on the treadmill for 30 - 45 minutes before doing anything else. This was the easiest exercise to find an alternate for. I can "walk" anywhere, right? Since I live in the beautiful and very white Upstate New York, to walk outside is hit or miss.
As I thought about alternatives, a few came to mind:
*The Indoor Track at our high school is open to the public before and after school
*Our Town Hall is available to walk laps in
*Our schools are available to walk laps in the hallways, before of after school
For me, to walk right after school makes the most sense and requires me to travel no where. I started this last Tuesday and managed to get in a 35 minute walk, 1.55 miles, before leaving school to tutor. I felt refreshed and proud of myself. I went home and even did a couple more exercises. You'll learn more about these in future "Fitness Friday" blogs.
To help me stay the course I've invited a couple friends to join me in my walk. I plan to walk whether they are able to join me or not but sometimes the time flies faster when you are visiting with a friend. When it warms up and the sidewalks are clear, we can walk around town after school.
Another benefit of walking, at least 5x a week, I'm getting in some reading too. I turned on my Audible and listened to a great book while logging my steps. A win-win, right?!
