Holiday Fun with More to Come!

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and had a Merry Christmas.  I certainly am.  I went to Long Island to visit my family & friends and had a great time as always.  Unfortunately didn’t get to see everyone that I intended to visit but that always seems to happen — just not enough time in a day it seems.   We packed up our things Friday night and

Hot Wings and Lobster Bisque...

Instead of just sharing the pictures from my latest dinnertime endeavors, I figured I should share the recipes with you guys as well.  Since I did that one TAG, Buffalo wings have been on.my.mind.  However I’m working on losing those 6 lbs by the end of the year and all that butter probably isn’t the best idea, so instead I found these “Healthier Hot Wings” on SparkRecipes.   While at the

Ya Girl Was Weave Checked!

You all know that I typically wear my hair in a bun or ponytail because I’m protectively styling my way to waist length.  But since we were all gathered for a special occasion (my sister-in-law’s wedding), I flat ironed and curled my hair for the Big Day.  Well apparently there was some discussion on the sidelines about whether I was telling the truth about my hair being my own.  Because the

Bangin' Swangin' Update (Weeks 16-20)

Based on my last Bangin’ Swangin’ Update, you all know that I joined weight watchers.  And I have to admit, it has made a world of difference in my weightloss.  What you need to know: (1) I write down everything — the sugar in my coffee, the ketchup on my fries, the vodka in my peach juice, everraythang; (2) I have complied with the daily/weekly points allowances that I have
