Wordless Wednesday Hitting the Jackpot! #WW

IMG_1854

I went to Mohegan Sun Casino with my mom over the February vacation. I hit big here - just look at all those 7s and those triple stars! 3192! That's nothing to sneeze at! Unless of course I was playing a penny machine......and I was. This was the biggest hit of the day $31.92. You don't want to know what I lost! What's funny is that when you win 3192 pennies, the machine dings for every single penny.....so you sit there and wait and wait and wait - which is much better than losing your … {Read More}

Inspired to Bake Grandma’s Chocolate Cake (Recipe!) #Netflix #StreamTeam

chocolatecakerecipe

Ryan loves baking sweet treats. The show Cupcake Wars on Netflix has definitely inspired him to create cupcakes and cakes. Will Ryan be a pastry chef one day? Who knows? We will always do what we can to encourage the kids in doing the things they love - even if it means eating a lot of cakes and cupcakes. ;) Another cause for inspiration is our new Kitchen Aide mixer. I say new, but it is only new to us. This was my Mom's old mixer (It's like over 20 years old). Since she got a new one, we … {Read More}

10 Weight Watchers Crock Pot Chicken Recipes

10-Weight-Watcher-Crock-Pot-Chicken-Recipes

Well, it's that time of year again - my pants are getting tighter and the scale is creeping higher. Time to start Weight Watchers again. While I've hopped from diet to diet over the years, I always hop back over to the Weight Watchers plan. It is the only diet that I can lose weight on. It is simply the only thing that works for me. I was dabbling in the Trim Healthy Mama diet plan, and while it doesn't omit any foods - it's more of a food combining principle, I found myself eating low carb … {Read More}
