Candy Cane Jo-Jo's
If you like items that are candy cane laced flavored, and are lucky enough to have a Trader Joe's in your area - run, do not walk, and get yourself some Candy Cane Jo-Jo's. I have been hearing about Jo-Jo's for years, and since I don't live with a reasonable distance of Trader Joe's, I've always just missed out!
This year my sweet friend Caitlin (y'all will remember her from the guest post last week here) was kind enough to ship us four boxes of Candy Cane Crack Jo-Jo's. I didn't expect to love them this much. I certainly didn't expect to see the DH eating one every time I turned around. But folks - it's true. They are totally addictive, and before the holiday season is over, you simply must have a box. (Think Oreo cookie, cream filling that is not only candy cane flavored, but has pieces of candy cane. Think yummy.)
Are you a fan of the Jo-Jo's? Any other flavors I need to know about???
Hello There! Hope this post finds everyone doing fantastic and taking time out to enjoy the holiday season! Sorry I have been such a loser about posting this year, I plan to do a MUCH better job in 2016!
My last post was in August and was all about losing weight. I had such tremendous support both here on the blog and on Facebook, I thought it was time to update you again.
I have continued running and working out, and to date have lost 66 pounds total. My husband and I completed our first half marathon the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the Kaiser Coastal Half in Orange Beach, Alabama. It was such an amazing feeling, knowing that this time last year I couldn't even run a quarter of a mile. Now, I'll be honest. My time was terrible - 2:47:47 - but I completed a half marathon! Today I am sharing pictures - one of me with my husband, and one with my husband and our friends Gwen and Lindsey. Gwen has been a friend of mine since high school, and we have been running together since Ma…

A big hello to you all! Wow - I can't believe it has been four years since I was involved in blogging. I have often wondered "is it time to revive the blog" over this time...and after some encouragement from long time readers and friends, I have decided to test the waters!
It feels so strange - I don't even know if folks read blogs anymore! I know that most blogging happens on platforms such as Instagram, which in my mind is for pictures more than content. And heck let's face it, most days I don't even put on makeup or fix my hair, so that will NOT work for this chick. HA! If you're still around and want to read my ramblings, this is the place for you. 😀
The last time I blogged I was so focused on losing weig…
Happy Tuesday! The Resort collection by Lilly Pulitzer is always my favorite, hands down! This year is proving to be no exception, as evidenced by all the items that are finding their way on my wish list.
The first delivery of Resort 2011 should begin arriving tomorrow and over the next few days at our favorite websites and Lilly Pulitzer Via and corporate store locations. Get ready, because if you're like me, your wallet is going to be smoking!
The theme of the Resort 2011 collection is "Jungle Glam". The first items I'm featuring are part of the October 25 delivery, enjoy! (Please accept my apologies in advance for the picture quality, my tech support isn't home to install my new printer/scanner combo. The scanner on my dinosaur printer is on the fritz...ugh!)
