Bible Study aka ....

Knitting group.. quilting group...

we are really none of those things...

We are really a Christian Book Club...
or just friends hanging out once a month and the book is a guideline for discussion

We are going into our 5th year

We are reading a book called "Captivating" by John and Stasi Ellredge.

The rules are this...


We meet once a month discussing a chapter per month.

If you didn't read the chapter, we still want to see you

It's not about making someone feel guilty because they didn't read a chapter

We all get busy, LIFE HAPPENS.. but it is just great to take a couple hours once a month

to get together and catch up

Since we've started, we had 2 weddings, 1 baby, 1 new pregnancy, and meet 4 new friends.

I hope I am still talking about this 20 years from now.

Heck, we might take up knitting or quilting by then...

800 vs 200

My Dr gave me a prescription for 800mg Ibuoprofen to help manage pain and swelling. He gave me 100. Look at the size of the bottle compared to your average "over the counter" ibuprofen. oh my gah!!!

Also, check out 1- 800mg compared 4 - 200mg.

I'm just wondering.. does getting 100 of this monster pills mean I'm going to need these for a long time? Let's hope not.

Lose 40 pounds

Marie Osmond did it with Nutrisystem; Valerie Bertinelli did it with Jenny Craig.. and now Wynonna is doing it with Alli... (although I'm not sure how much weight she has lost yet).

I have to admit, everytime I see the Nutrisystems commercial, I think "hmm... I do spend that much a month on groceries, and if I order the food, I won't have to think about what I'm going to eat for dinner. It will be planned for me". The problem with this thought process is that I'm a spontaneous eater. I can have 20 lean cuisines in the freezer, and if it doesn't sound good, I'm ordering a pizza. Plus, I like to cook although it is usually on Sundays since it's just me. So, my concern is that I spend the couple hundred dollars on the Nutrisystems food.. and still go to the grocery store and spend another couple hundred dollars, and at the end of the day, end up eating out. It's all about discipline, and as I've mentioned in previous blogs -I do not have it. Obviously!

So, all I can say is "Go Valerie, Go Marie, Go Queen Latifah, and Go Wynonna (although I think she is "going" because I hear Alli can really jack with your digestive system if you do not watch what you eat)".

FlipHappy Crepes

As I mentioned in a previous blog, Aunt Janae has moved to Fredericksburg which is about a hour and a half from Austin. One of the first things I'm going to do when I am released to drive, and I get my new car (TBD) - I am going to see them - with a stop at this place. I saw them on Throwdown with Bobby Flay, and I've been anxious to check it out.

Spicy Sausage Balls

  I love sausage balls.  I've been making them for years. I think it's been at least 15-20 years.  These are one of many...
