When a bowl is a cup

Today is a rainy, cold, gray day and I just really wanted soup for lunch. The closest place to get soup is Chili’s, so I ordered a bowl of southwest chicken soup online and went to pick it up. When I got there, the waitress put my bag on the counter and went to cash me out but her computer was…

Healthlisted Blogger Award

I have been awarded with a Top 25 WEIGHT LOSS Blogger award from healthlisted.com. I am always very appreciative of awards and blog-mentions – nice to know someone is still reading my little corner of the blogosphere!

Prince

When I was around 10 years old, I was at a sleepover with a bunch of other girls for a birthday party and of course when you go to a sleep over, the last thing anyone wants to do is sleep. Since we were up later than we were usually allowed to be, one of the late night talk shows was…
