Jeepers Creepers....

Welcome to Day 27

Today I get the lovely task of sharing my favourite feature.

I LOVE my eyeballs... they are gorgeous ... (you like how I did that just came right out with it... ya I'm like that)

yup those are my eyeballs
Anyways, I don't have a lot of issues talking about my fantastic features so I'm just going to stop here and say that less is more.

Have a fantastic day and remember to remind yourself how beautiful you are today! (cause you are... promise)

Life was beautiful then

On to Day 26

Fun times... A childhood Memory.

I had a fantastic childhood filled with a lot of fun happy memories. It is hard to choose one to share with you but I will try.

I have always loved Christmas, time spent with family visiting, laughing, and playing. Christmas meant extra goodies and treats and staying up a little bit later because of parties and dinners and get togethers. I have a fantastic memory of waking up one Christmas morning and seeing under the tree a stroller for my cabbage patch kid. I remember being SO excited and happy. I now know that stroller was made by my mom and dad, Mom sewed and my dad put together the frame with white pvc pipe. (genius). I'm not sure why that is such a strong Christmas morning memory for me but I do remember being a little groggy as I walked in to see the Christmas tree with all sorts of gifts and just knowing that stroller was for me and all that excitement just wiping away any sleepiness in me. I would have been very young (not sure exactly how old), but it's a special memory that I can't wait to make for my children when they come along.

I really should ask if mom and dad have any pictures of this stroller.... as this post is lacking in the photo department.

Absolutely DELICIOUS!

And on to Day 25

I hope you just ate because this post may just make you HUNGRY!

Today is a recipe day!

I have fallen in love with this blog

Check out Gina's Skinny Recipes!
Seriously if you have not yet checked out this blog you must.... Go! Seriously..... I'll wait!

Doesn't everything look SO SO delicious!

I have yet to try a recipe from her site that I have not liked! A huge crowd favourite around here is

As you can see Gina takes GORGEOUS photo's of her food! She is very talented!

This recipe is So simple, I've even thrown my chicken in frozen and it has still turned out fabulous! I usually cook up some Quinoa to serve this on, and I add sides of salsa, guacamole, grated cheese, sour cream, hot sauce (my hubby loves them) and anything else I think would be delicious to add on top.
It has always been a crowd pleaser and I doubt we will ever get sick of it! I definitely recommend you add this on to your menu plan next week!

Do you have any favourite cooking blogs or recipes? please share!

I'm Baaa-AAAck!

Well after a long Hiatus (sorry about that) I figured it's time to get back on the horse.

I have sat down to do this a few times and never seem to make it past clicking on "New Post". I figured I just needed a break, haven't figured out why yet and not sure why NOW is when I finally get back in the blogisphere, but here I am.

I am going to finish these 30 days because it's important for me to finish, so I hope you've been waiting in anticipation.... for Day 24.

Actually I'm going to switch up Day 24, It is meant to be - A Movie no one would expect me to love.  I'm pretty hard to disappoint with movies and I think most people know I have a fairly eclectic movie taste and love almost anything. So I decided I'm switchin' it up! Ya, that's right, I'm coming back to finish my 30 days but I'm hijacking them and doing it MY way (well at least for Day 24 I am.)

So rather than a movie no one would expect me to love, how about a movie that no one would expect me NOT to love.

The number one movie in that position is
... drumroll please.....

The Devil Wears Prada

I think I enjoyed the book too much to like the movie. I know that is a common experience for many people, but not for me. Typically reading the book doesn't disappoint my movie watching experience.  With this one I remember sitting through the movie SO angry half the time, and left the theater feeling cheated.

Are you surprised? Needless to say The Devil Wears Prada is not in my rather large DVD collection.

So.... did ya miss me? did ya? ;)
