I have a slight obsession with paper.  Okay, a major obsession.  While shopping on treat.™ (a division of Shutterfly), I found some really nice cards that I thought I could incorporate in my Easter decor.  I am not one to send Easter cards out, so I decided to do something a little different with their cards!   I must start by … [Read more...]

Maffy’s Easter Bread


This is a very very special recipe.  My grandmother, Mafalda (Maffy), used to make this for Easter every year.  Along with Pizzelles and some of the best damn Italian food you have ever tasted.  Maffy shared her recipe with my mom a long time ago so she began making it.  Then she stopped.  Until last year when she surprised … [Read more...]

Weigh In Wednesday

 I am just loving Weigh In day lately :)  I'm down 9 pounds!!! I can't believe it.  It is certainly motivation to keep going when I have feelings of wanting something delicious (aka fatty).  I actually did go out to eat twice and am thrilled that it didn't kill my loss.  I Just kept portions in check and ordered something … [Read more...]

Weigh In


It's finally exciting to weigh in.  Actually losing weight is really fun and quite addicting!  This week is not as fun as last week, but I can only assume a lot of last week was simply water weight.   Things that make me smile: I am not nearly as hungry as I was last week I have energy again Having my fitbit REALLY … [Read more...]
