So What's New?

Time after time, after time, I think about how to make more time to do the things I enjoy. Yet once again I am posting after months and months of not even having the time to even think about this blog. I am not sure I am going to continue writing it. Years ago when I started this blog, I thought I was going to become famous because I wrote this blog. The truth is, I am a very private person and feel uncomfortable posting my life, my ideas, my feelings, on the internet. Although, at times my I had a lot of followers and page views at one point in time. I decided it was unhealthy for me to be stuck behind a computer pretending I had a wonderful life.

 I decided a few years back that I, miss Amy, am going to live my life to the fullest. 2014 was great! I accomplished many of my goals had one of the best years of my life. However, with all the life changes I went though, my lifestyle became very unhealthy. I went from running around all day at work to sitting at a desk and became very sedentary. I gained a lot of weight last year and even though I was accomplished all those amazing things, I was still so insecure, and down on myself.  Ever sense I turned 30, I have had this overwhelming feeling inside I need to take care of myself.  I needed yet another life change. It took a few months and failed diets to stumble upon Whole30.

I completed my first Whole in January. My stats were awesome. I should have taken some before and afters. I lost 14 pounds, a diet coke addiction, and gained a whole lot of confidence.  Took a month off and now I am back at it. I am so ready to be healthy and happy. I had the urge the other day to blog about my experience with Whole30 and perhaps write some blogs posts on how Whole 30 on a budget.  

Anyhow, I am on day 6 of my current Whole30 and am feeling pretty tired. I don't have the headaches I had last time. My pants feel looser already. (I am working out this time) I have found some really yummy foods and decided I don't really like coconut milk in soup.

I am really thankful I have finally found something that works for me. Today, I encourage all of you to eat some veggies, and do a workout because it really is worth it. And like I used to say, No More Ramen Noodles!

XOXO my loves,

Halloween Costume Favorites

I love seeing everybody's costumes on Facebook, so I thought it would be fun to do a post of this years favorites. I know how much work everybody puts into their costumes and thought this could be a way to show off how amazing some of them were. So, here are my fav's. 

The Fava Family as 
The Simpsons

Ed- Benjaman Franklin

Elise- The Queen of Hearts

Chelsea- Statue of the Goddess Athena

Aria-Skelita from Monster High 

"Since I work in law enforcement, I thought I'd be a favorite among officers."

Last But not Least

I never knew I could look that scary. Halloween was really fun this year.  I was a mummy turned zombie. (My big plan of wrapping up in toilet paper didn't really work out.) Anyway, I hope you all did not eat too much candy and get sick. Check back soon for more posts. As always thanks for reading, sharing, commenting, and following.

What's For Dinner Wednesday--- It's a Halloween Party

Every year for Halloween we get a Jack-O-Lantern pizza from Papa Murphys and I make Grandma Grimshaw's sugar cookies. See post HERE for one of our many pizza parties. My hubby kinda hinted what our Halloween plans are and asked if we were going to get pizza... again. This year I decided to get creative and go out on a limb and make something else for Halloween dinner. This years menu will consist of:

Lil Smokies Mummy Dogs

Idea found Here

Frighting Fingers

Idea found Here
I think I am going to take this to my work pot luck

Witches Brew

  • 1 two liter ginger ale
  • 1 package of grapes, peeled
  • 1 pint orange sorbet of any flavor, thawed
  • 5 cups cranberry juice
Thaw sorbet until it becomes liquid. Mix sorbet, ginger ale and cranberry juice in large punch bowl, then add peeled grapes. Serve with a fork. I think I am going to add dry ice for a more spooky effect.

Last but not least
A Massive Bowl of Candy, it is Halloween in all.

I hope you have a a SPOOKTACULAR dinner with family and friends!!! Happy Halloween. Until next time, Happy Savings.
