Change is Good! Keep watching!

I’ve thought about it long and hard, but I will be cleaning up my blog site. I feel like I need to make updates because of the lifestyle changes in my life over the last few months. I will be writing mostly about healthy foods, recipes, and kitchen gadgets, my body transformation progress, etc. I will also be writing about other things from time to time, i.e. family, friends, social events, hobbies, business entrepreneurship, etc.

If you have any comments, requests of what you would like me to write about, please comment or message me on my social networks. And please share, tweet, like and follow.


So Perplexed!

I’ve been thinking what to write about for my next blog. I think the main reason why I can’t come up with anything is because I need to figure out my niche and I’m not happy with the appearance and functionality of my blog site. Does anyone know what I can do to solve these problems?

I have so many interests and not sure what to do or what is most important to my site. I am lacking the motivation and passion for blogging these days. I am also frustrated on trying to figure out affiliate marketing. HELP!

I have run into some embarrassing situations before when being pulled over. The officer approaches me and asks for my license, registration, and insurance card and I begin to fumble through my messy glovebox looking for the requested documents.
Now with Pullover Pal I can keep all of my important documents handy. It is quality made with durable stitching and has plenty of room to store all of my important documents.
Thanks Pullover Pal!

Love this product. Great quality! I keep it in my door panel so it’s easy access before the officer reaches my window. When I’m not in the car, it fits nicely in my purse so my ID and other docs are ready when needed.

Goals, Priorities and Responsibilities- OH MY!

Does anyone else feel overwhelmed when it comes to responsibilities, setting goals and prioritizing them?

Ohmigosh, I sure do! I think my problem, most of all, is that I procrastinate. When I procrastinate, everything gets piled up, too much on my plate and can’t think clearly to be able to prioritize them because of being so overwhelmed.

So…. To solve my problem, I decided to set a schedule and take on little tasks and move on to the next task at hand. If you use a calendar or planner, write out a list for each day of tasks that must be done at the top of the list, what I want to do and lastly, what I can do if I have time and that can be done while watching TV.  If you use a notebook; make three columns may be labeled as i.e. (urgent, important and leisure). You can also categorize the tasks by if they are a household chore, business/work, personal or for a family or friend. Some people use computer programs like Evernote and PlannerPro. They are good to use but I prefer writing things out and being able to see and hold in my hands and I can mark out what’s been done, make additional notes as needed. I also like to use highlighters and colored pens to color code for what’s been done or type of task.

There may be hobbies or projects that you enjoy or have put off because of more important things always need to be done. Set aside at least once a week for an hour or longer to do something that you enjoy. We all need to have that time for our sanity! If you don’t have time to plan an outing with a friends or family, give them a call or a random message to let them know that you haven’t forgotten about them.

With today’s technology, it is easy to lose touch with everyone. Even though technology makes it easy to communicate, there is so much going on and there are so many social media platforms that it is sometimes hard to keep up with it all.

Such a sweet baby! Awww!!!

Babies are so wonderful! I am so happy to have grandbabies. They are so much more fun and so different than when I was raising my kids. My youngest grandbaby is 2 weeks old. I was able to see her today. She is so beautiful and sweet. She has two siblings, an older brother and a sister. I am so proud of my daughter when I see her being such a wonderful mother to her kids. The photo is the newest addition to the family and her big brother. He loves his little sissy!



Veterans Day on the Crystal Coast

How was your Veterans Day?

First all, Thank you for your service to all of the military personnel, active and retired.

I had a good time with my granddaughter. We went to the Aquarium on Pine Knoll Shores. Then we went to the beach and Dairy Queen. There is so much to do on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina. Many are free and a short drive. Links are below.

Some of the free activities are beaches, nature trails, boardwalks and museums. See the link directly below to find out what interests you!

About our day…

We arrived at the Aquarium and had a hard time finding a parking space. They have free admission every now and then on a special holiday such as Veterans Day.  So the parking was difficult since it was pretty busy, but worth it. I think my granddaughter’s favorite things there was the touch tank, the kids play area and the analysis center for the turtles. It was nice for them to have interactive activities for the kids to do, other than walk around and look at the exhibits. We visited the gift shop inside the aquarium. They have a lot of fun and nice items there like T-shirts, hats, glasses, jigsaw puzzles, books and toys. My granddaughter wanted everything in the shop. LOL

The beach was very nice. My granddaughter enjoyed it. She got on the swings, and then climbed on a turtle. She even got to digging in the sand like a dog then she lay in the hole she dug. After the beach, we went to get food and ice cream from Dairy Queen. She played some of the arcade games and when she ate her ice cream, I think she was wearing more on her face than what she ate.

If you are ever on the Crystal Coast, I recommend going to the beach and the aquarium. Some of my favorite places to go are the Morehead City and Beaufort waterfronts, Harkers Island, Cape Lookout and Cape Hatteras.



Hello Everybody! Thank you for dropping by! I hope you all are doing great.

Today, I want to blog about something that has been on my mind lately. It’s about how things have changed over the years. Friendships and family relationships are different than when I was growing up and the generations before mine. People don’t seem to be as close as they used to be. I remember when my family would get together on Sundays for after-church dinners and socialize with each other. I used to have sleepovers with friends, game nights and went to dances when I was in my teens. It seems like people are too busy these days. I hardly ever hear from friends and don’t see family much.

Also, dating isn’t like it used to be. I remember having real dates, when you are asked out to go somewhere, like a restaurant, a play, bowling, etc. I’ve been on dating sites and met guys in person and it seems like the majority of the guys have ONE thing on their minds.

So, how do we change interactions with each other?

Ideally, it would be nice to have closer relationships with our friends and family.


How is everyone tonight?

About my day!
I’m doing well. I hope everyone is doing great!

I had to get an ultrasound this morning. It was not fun at all. I had to drink two bottles of water before my appointment. Then it took forever for them to call me back. It was such an uncomfortable feeling to not be able to go to the bathroom when needed. And the ultrasound wand was a pain when pressed on my stomach.

No, I’m not prego! LOL I’ve been experiencing some abdominal pain on my left side and the doctor wanted me to get the ultrasound to rule out any female problems. Considering that there is some history of cancer in my family, it’s best to be safe than sorry. UPDATE: everything came back fine. Ultrasound looked normal.

After leaving there, I had to wait for a while at the clinic to get my prescriptions. Then I had to take my car to the car doctor. It started making a squeaking noise a few days ago. It turns out that the belts started getting some wear on them. So, I got them replaced. It’s always something that needs to be done. There is always upkeep on my health, my car, my home, and my pets. But, I know it all must be done.

By the way, my dinner turned out awesome last night. I made wild rice, seasoned collard greens and crescent rolls to go with my Crock Pot cube steak. It was so good; I enjoyed the leftovers tonight as well.

I might make an Italian meatball sub tomorrow night. I got the Meal Deal from Harris Teeter for $6.99. They have a different meal deal every week. I saved more money when I bought those items together than if I got them separate on different shopping trips. It consisted of Tater Tots, Spaghetti Sauce, Hoagie Rolls, Meatballs and Lipton Tea. It sounds like a great meal to me! I’ll let you know how it turns out.

I ended up not making the meatballs subs. I might make them on Sunday.

Have a great night!!!
