Yummy in my Tummy


As my adorable nephew always says as he enjoys a treat to his liking; “Yummy in my tummy,” with his cute little voice that’s like music to my ears. Well, I found myself saying the same thing as I delighted in making a few healthy meals for myself this past week. Earlier in the week I had a wonderful idea to make an antipasto pasta salad. It was my first attempt in making one, but I figured it couldn’t be too difficult. The major challenge for me would be to acquire the taste that I desired. Luckily my recipe turned out well, and my salad was very enjoyable.

Spinach and Pasta Delight


Today I stepped out of the box and actually cooked for myself. I’ve decided that I’m going to put forth as much effort as possible to not eat out, or get my dinner from fast-food restaurants. I made a delicious salad tonight that I must say was appealing to both my senses of sight and taste. I’m sure that I’m not the first to combine the following ingredients together, however, it was an original recipe for me; and one that I can say I’m very proud of.

My spinach and pasta delight:

Remembrance…Peace…


It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.
Eleanor Roosevelt

We can all try to reason why horrible things happen and still find no reasonable answer. I debated whether I would post anything today. I cannot and will not try to develop any words to describe the loss and utter pain that others have felt. I will say this though; be grateful for those that you love and that love you back. Be thankful for every moment you have. And in every moment, strive for peace, inward and outward.

When you think about your style…


When you think about your style, what comes to mind? Do you possess a clean-cut, classic look that exudes confidence and sophistication? Maybe you’re more of a prepster that loves a buttoned down shirt, cardigan and loafers. Khaki and cotton may be the main staple of your closet. Or, you could be a rebel that loves to make a statement of individuality through bold colors and even bolder fabrics and textures. It could be that your style emanates a sex appeal that lingers like the sweet scent of perfume traveling with the breeze.
As I had a discussion with one of my girls this morning, we ended up talking about our personal style and the portrayal of who we are visually to others and to ourselves. When I thought about a designer that reflects my friend’s style, Chanel immediately came to mind. Coincidentally, the same designer popped into her head. As we sat there pondering a designer that meshed with my look, I kept thinking of Betsey Johnson; however, I couldn’t see myself being THAT bold in my garb. I tend to see myself as more laid back in my gear opting for ideal comfort. However, Betsy kept flashing across the dashboard of my mind. And as soon as the words Betsey Johnson escaped my mouth, simultaneously, they bolted from hers as well. Upon further thought (since we had nothing better to converse about), we settled on the style of L.A.M.B. Gwen Stephanie has a way of combining the rebel, rocker chic with a cool, laid back, round-the-way girl look. So there it is. There is my style in a nutshell; bold with a little extra comfort. So, again I ask, what do you think about when your style comes to mind?
