Still relatively new to Arizona. I have lived on both coasts...I may be working my way inward now. :) I am the mom of a pretty awesome 17-year-old boy (though at this point he would wig out on my saying boy, kid or anything less than teenager) and the wife of a very amazing man. I have been blessed beyond measure when it comes to love, and isn't that really where the blessings count the most? I like to watch people and often I like to comment. I also enjoying helping people, but I kind of get saddened by seeing the same person always in the same boat.
Enjoy EVERY moment in your wedding gown. You can't stay in it forever...SO UNFAIR!!!!

SUPER BOWL SNACKS
Super Bowl is on its way and Americans will be consuming massive quantities of goodies and treats. It is practically a holiday. All those snacks can really add up and take away from the pocket book as well as add in the waistline. I am really trying to eat more healthfully so I looked for some great recipes for you that are low in calories but also nice on the budget. Seven Layer Dip is an amazing treat any time, but besides being heavy in flavor it can be really heavy in calories. Fit Sugar has a really tasty option of Seven Layer Dip that can take a bite out of the calories and be done cheaply by following the sales (Fry's has roma tomatoes at 88 cents, Hass avocados are 88 cents each (but 2 for $1 at Safeway!), Bush's Best Beans (get the black or go for a bag of dry and make them from scratch in the crock pot with a bit of garlic - super easy) just 49 cents each when you take part in Fry's buy 10 and save $5 (lots of easy savings), Spark People has an inexpensive, healthy and very tasty Pico de Gallo recipe for you too. This is really good and you can amp up the health by adding some extras which they explain fully. As a money and time saver look at Fry's frozen prechopped white onions.

Hubby portraying pomposity (not a word...I think)
Because IHEART RADIO STINKS IMO
Welcome to my mind...
What there is of it anyway. I am a person who is consistent only in the fact that I am consistently changing. I am a happy wife and mother. I have been blessed with an amazing son and an amazing husband. They both are quite generous in their love for me, and they both enjoy me for the oddball I can be. I am rich in my life and my experiences. I am not rich in the wallet, but you can't take it with you anyway...so I'll have nothing to miss. :)
