So here goes:


1.) I love Otis Spunkmeyer White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies!!! I'm sad that they don't sell them in Walmart anymore so I have to get them from local restaurants that sell them.


2.) I'm a High School Biology Teacher!!!
     (I also work with a doctor PT)

3.) I was voted "Most Attractive Female Teacher" in the Teacher Superlative section of last year's Yearbook! "toot-toot"!

5.) My boo's younger brother is marrying my friend Bernie in 2 weeks!!! Krystle is their sister!  The 3 of us are like sisters anyways which makes it even cooler that we'll be related for real...someday! :)

6.) I have never been to Chicago, but have a very strong desire to live there......


7.) I love Whole Foods Market and believe all supermarkets should be a Whole Foods!!!  I also love IKEA!!!(random huh?)


8.) I love college football games and prefer watching them over NFL games!  Go Seminoles!!! (I'm FSU alumni!)



9.) Soooooo....driving home from work last week I saw "A chicken cross the rode"!!!!!  How crazy is that!!! Where the heck did it come from????  This was truly random!!!!
I guess he crossed "to get to the other side...where all of his cronies were!!!"  LMBO!!!!  Ya'll I was cracking up the rest of the way home!


10.) I smile as much as possible because when I don't I look really mean and unapproachable (So I've been told), therefore I believe I'm sorely misunderstood at times.

OK!  So if you read all 10 random facts, TAG YOU'RE IT!!!!  Please let me know if you decide to participate so I can come check out your randomness!

Talk to you all soon!

Sunday's Best and a 5 Minute Meal!

Hello Lovelies,


I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. I missed you guys last week but things were pretty busy for me at work, hence the lack of posts.  Anywho, here is what I wore to church today.  I pulled my hair back into a bun for a different look. The message was quite simple.  It was about God's Love.  When's the last time you told God you loved Him and really meant it?  What about your family members, or significant other?   1 Corintians13 tells us what love is.   It's a great chapter, so if you get a moment, please take a look at it.

Yesterday was one of those "lazy" days and I didn't feel like doing much of anything.  I didn't want to go shopping, I didn't want to go out to eat, and I really didn't feel like cooking anything to eat but a girl's gotta eat right???? So ....I made the quickest meal I think I've ever made and it was delicious!!!

Crab stuffed Tilapia w/Rice and Veggies

The tilapia was stuffed with creamy lump crab meat!  I seasoned it well with lemon pepper, Old Bay, and Cajun seasoning.

 I added a little olive oil to the skillet and cooked the tilapia on all 4 sides.  It doesn't take long at all!  About 5 minutes total!

While I cooked the fish, the rice and veggies were steamed in a bag.  I added a very small amount of salt and pepper to the rice and veggies.

 About 5 minutes later, I had a yummy, quick, and nutritious meal!!!

Sunday's Best

Hi Dolls,


I hope that all is well and that you all had a wonderful weekend.  Before I show you my church outfit I would like to debut a special someone in my life.  I did another walk for Breast Cancer on Saturday with my cheerleaders and brought my little chihuahua along for the cause!  She was a bit of a superstar at the walk!  Everyone thought she was the cutest thing in her pink jacket and wanted her picture!

Photobucket
Anywho...here is what I was wearing at church yesterday:

Photobucket
  • Jacket:  H&M
  • Dress:  Bebop (Ross) 

Photobucket(Excuse my ashy feet.....fashion foul!!! I promise I put on lotion that morning. LOL!)
  • Heels:  Sam Edelman (These shoes are so comfy!)

The message at church was on time, as always.  The scripture was Acts 18:11.  The message contrasted the Tools of Discouragement and the Tools of the Lord.  The tools of discouragement are meant to keep you in bondage:  pride, jealousy, deceit, envy, hatred, and idolatry.  The tools of the Lord will set you free:  self-control, patience, gentleness, joy, peace, goodness, and kidness.  The part of the message that resonated with me was this, "In tough situations you've got to praise your way out of them.  The adversary can't come in unless you give them an entrance. 

Have a great week!!!

NIGHT 1:  "The Arrival"

The house was decorated with "Girls Night Out" party favors!  Bernie was definitely surprised that all of this was orchestrated without her knowing about it.  She thought we were going to Miami just to visit our friend Krystle.  She was very happy to have so many of her friends together for this weekend!

  Photobucket
Our lovely friend Krystle (Maid of Honor) had dinner prepared for everyone! It was delicious and right on time after the long drive from Jacksonville to Miami.  She is an AMAZING cook!
  • Caesar Salad
  • Potato and Bacon Soup
  • Chicken Alfredo
  • Fresh Garlic Bread
  • Moscato Wine
Bernie loves Coach products so a local bakery made her the cutest Red Velvet and Amaretto cupcakes with different edible Coach emblems on top.

That concludes the first evening.  We relaxed and shared several laughs for the rest of the night!

DAY 2: "The morning after...."
We were all awakened by the beautiful aroma emerging out of the kitchen!  My girl Krystle was hooking us up again with a fabulous breakfast!
Mimosas

Praline Crusted French Toast Casserole

 Yogurt Parfait w/fresh fruit and granola

We went to the cutest little gym called IronFlower Fitness.  The decor was super cute with pink, black, and white decor.
They even had a Organic Food Bar with free samples of natural fruit smoothies, hummus, and salad.
The smoothies were delicious!
Here is what I was wearing for our work-out.....
