Mama is Sick

Last Monday I took my Mom to the ER because she was having some pressure in her chest and shortness of breath.

They admitted her that night.

Did a slew of test over the next few days.

She had open heart surgery with several complications on Friday.

Had a very scary 24 hours following surgery.

She is now on the road to recovery and will hopefully get out of ICU today.

Every minute of the day has been dedicated to her. 

When someone you love is sick, suddenly priorities look a whole lot different.

So grateful for the miracle of modern medicine and stellar doctors and nurses!

They quite literally saved my Mom’s life.

Amazing Baked Teriyaki Turkey Meatballs

It’s Get Naked Friday!  My favorite day of the week.  Because, let’s face it feeling healthy, self confident, and beautiful is what it’s all about.

Today I wanted to share an incredible recipe that I adapted from the amazing blog, Damn Delicious.  By far one of my favorite blogs to follow.

I made these meatballs, with some adjustments to suit me, for Super Bowl and I fell in love.

I have made them several times since.

Here is what I have done for the past 2 weeks.  The last two Sundays, I have I made a batch of them along with a few days worth of broccoli and rice and TADA, I have healthy lunches for the week already ready to go.  Just heat and eat!

This is the first time I have done some meal prep for the week.  It is a bit of work, but the payoff is awesome.   Read more [...]

Improve Your Marriage With This One Basic Step

I was recently talking to a family member who is Mormon. Because I am unfamiliar with the religion, she was teaching me a little bit about missionaries. One thing that she explained to me was that when Mormons take their mission they are always paired with another missionary or companion, as they call it.

These two individuals will live together and work together for the duration of their mission. Though they may go thru several companions during the course of their mission, they will live, breathe and work along side this person with very little (if any) down time away from each other.

In order to help this companionship work, one of the things that the missionaries are required to do is take a Companionship Inventory.

Companionship Inventory is held at the end of each week. It Read more [...]
