Fiber One Cookies

Friends I need to let you in on a little bittersweet secret of mine. 

Fiber one cookies.

Only 120 calories per cookie and they are soft, chewy, and delicioso!

And hey 5 box tops! (Does anyone even save these anymore??)

Oh and they have fiber, which in important to maintain a healthy belly right? I mean that's what we are told at least. I'm sure there are studies that prove or disprove everything I mention and I'm completely ok with that. 

Problem though. (Cue dramatic music) Only 6 come in a box and I've ate like 2 a day. Which lets be real. I've ONLY at 2 a day. I really should be proud of myself. 

However, needless to say, they are gone and I don't think my belly appreciates all the fiber I've blessed it with the last 3 days. 

Moderation people.

(Pulls out megaphone)

Moderation Chrissy!!! Have I taught you nothing??!?!

 I should have just bought a package of chewy chips ahoy and been done with it. It certainly would have been cheaper, and I'd still have some left. But I guarantee a package of those is way more than 720 calories. 

The good news is if you can control yourself to eat just one a day or when you need a sweet pick me up treat, it's the perfect little bit of amazing to do that.

Maybe it's better they are gone and I have no more temptation. 


That is what I will tell myself at least. 

So don't go buy them if you have little to no self control over chocolate chip cookies. You are thinking you are doing good by buying the "healthier ones" but if you eat them all in one sitting, well you aren't helping the problem. You are just creating a new problem. "Binge fiber cookie eating."

Good luck my friends. I'm struggling at this too some days! Chocolate chip cookies are my kryptonite. 

Well that and Starbucks Mocha Frappachinos. 

Keep calm.....and you might as well go ahead and finish that box.

What is Your Passion?

Hi Lovelies!

I know, I know. Where have I been? All over the place it seems. Between being a wife, mom, full time employee, student, night time dance party host (in our living room), oh what else.....

I know it would be pointless to go through the ridiculous amount of excuses as to where I have been, but that is just what they would be. Excuses. And Frankly, as Sweet Brown would say "Ain't nobody got time for that!".

So why now? What is going on with me that I suddenly want to blog again? Life. Life Happens. Life happens when you are busy planning the future, when you are busy trying to figure it out even. It goes on with or without you. I recently made some decisions in my life regarding my school and career that were pretty big decisions. Sometimes you have to really go after what you want. Even if its hard, even if its scary, risky, or you are unsure how to do it. I am beginning to think regret is worse than not trying!

This is my new favorite Quote/Picture. It completely makes me smile, makes my heart beat race, is so encouraging to me! I read it every day. EVERY DAY.

So, that's why this blog is back up. I have a passion to write, and instead of worry about what people think of what I say or don't say, I am going to write. I spoke to a writer recently that said if I wanted to write, then I would do it. That there is a difference between people who "wish they could" and "people who do". I hated how right they were. It made me mad actually and I was instantly like "psssh, you don't know me and my schedule and everything I have going on." Then after I came down off my emotional vacation, I realized they were right. If I want to write, I need to write. If no one reads it, I still get to write. I get to put "pen to the paper" or tickle the keyboard squares to construct thoughts into sentences and hopefully make something of it. I would love nothing more than to eventually write for a magazine, newspaper, write a novel, or even just blog and help people. None of those things can happen if I sit back and just "hope" they happen. It is going to take work, dedication, and drive.

So what will you see in this revamped little project of mine?



Fashion Style Advice......

Beauty Tips........

Humor........(I hope at least!)




Mom Life..........


Basically its going to be like a stuffed crust pizza with all the toppings. Supreme! You will just have to pick off what you don't like and enjoy the rest. (And I don't even like supreme pizza, so I understand this will be a struggle for some, even myself!). I am going to approach topics and areas that I have opinions about that may push against yours. That's OK! One great thing about all of us, is we are different. We have different ideas, theories, thoughts, plans, etc. It's what makes us who we are!

Writing is a passion of mine. Reaching people. Connecting. Feeling like I am helping someone. I just didn't realize it until now that instead of "wishing I could", I just need to "just do it". (Nike would be so proud).

I am not committing to writing daily, but I would like to. Weekly at least. Sometimes it will be really great, and sometimes it will be ridiculous, and sometimes it will be very short and boring. The point though is I am writing. Now I know there are friends who will read this and go "Really? I thought she wanted to a news anchor, or host her own talk show, or be on camera being the goofball that she is." The answer to that is still yes. Would I love a job in broadcasting, or media, or where I can interact with people? Absolutely! We all have to start somewhere. If Oprah or Kelly Ripa calls, I will be sure to let you all know.

So what is YOUR passion? Do you love working with people, but you are stuck behind a desk? Do you love to draw or paint, but feel like you are inadequate because you didn't get proper "training"?. Do you love animals but don't know where to begin with volunteering your time? You have to start somewhere. Recognize what you love and GO AFTER IT!

I want to beg you to stick around, be patient with me, share the post, help me speak to the masses, BUT, for now. I am just glad you are here. Sharing a few minutes of your day with me. Buckle up sunshine, for who knows where this journey will take us.

Until Next time....

Keep Calm.......and Fight for you Passion
