Thankful Thursday


  • The beautiful weather.
  • Sweet neighbors that check up on me.
  • Blooms peeping out on all things that bloom in the Spring!
  • Having a DVR, so I don’t miss out on my favorite shows.
  • Finalizing a big trip planned for J and I.



Help In the Garden?!

Since the weather is so unbelievably nice, I can’t help but spend all of my time outside!

Today, I had a few more things to plant in my garden that I bought on Sunday, and I noticed that Jen’s was willing to be my ‘co-green-thumb’…So, I ran inside to get my phone and came back out and noticed that my ‘co-green-thumb’ had decided this was her way to help…


Sitting in the garden while watching ME do all of the work.

How sweet of her–

Well, I better get back to finishing my planting while Jen’s is watching over me.

Maybe she is taking lessons to one day help? One can only dream….


Hope you all are having a wonderful Wednesday!


Shrimp Toco’s

If you are like me, you are still trying to be Healthy from the infamous ‘New Year’s Resolution’ that we all make. Well, as much as I want to be healthy, it can be hard. I love fries. Of course, who doesn’t? (If you don’t, I’m sorry–you are missing out!)
I must make a change in the way that I eat. 
With that being said, I have tried to come up with ‘more healthy’ recipes so I hope that you will enjoy this one–
