    Childhood Obesity Fundraiser!

    Have you shared this yet with everyone you know? Can I help YOU place your order? Let's work together to make a HUGE donation!!
  4. Indulge in wonderful gifts this holiday season while making a difference in Childhood Obesity! 25% of the total sales (minus tax/shipping), my commission, will be contributed to the National Childhood Obesity Foundation by January 15, 2014. As a former LapBander and current Sleever, I understand the long term effects of childhood obesity - and I'm guessing that many of you do as well! To shop and contribute, simply shop online anytime in the month of December at https://joia.scentsy.us/ - upon checkout, you'll be asked if you'd like to join a party. Simply select the "Childhood Obesity Fundraiser" and your purchase will contribute to the total! To read more about the NCOF, visit their website at http://www.ncof.org/ - let's band together this holiday season to help address this important problem in our society! Facebook Event (join and invite your friends!): https://www.facebook.com/events/590202204369102
  5. Nothin' like a Friday evening, my DVR, pajamas and some pumpkin spice coffee (w/sugar free pumpkin spice creamer, of course!)...yes, I realize that this blissful Friday night is brought to you by my aging preferences. :)

      Same here but I had a pumpkin spice smoothie, but had pumpkin spice with protein for breakfast.

  6. Molly's getting her blood drawn again to test her ever changing thyroid levels. Poor kitty. She'll be mad and hissy for the rest of the weekend.

  7. On this day in 1918, an armistice between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect, ending World War I.An act approved in 1938 made Nov. 11 a legal U.S. holiday to be celebrated and known as "Armistice Day." In the 1950s, "Armistice Day" became known instead as "Veterans Day."Thank you to all my friends and family who are Veterans or are currently serving - special shout out to my sister Jacquie and her husband Brett for their service! Love you both!

    Pumpkin ideas?

    Pumpkin pie spice can be purchased at grocery stores here in the "spices/baking" aisle...hmmm. I googled it and said it's available in the UK at stores as well!
