The Butchart Gardens, victoria BC. My personal gardening inspiration. You MUST go! I came home, ripped out my yard, and started over. This
“People always ask me, ‘You have so much confidence. Where did that come from?’ It came from me. One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl … It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it.” —Gabourey Sidibe

One pinner said: "After I had a baby and my husband was deployed - I obviously had ZERO time to go to the gym. I lost 65 pounds by the time he came home - THIS was my arm workout every day. And ooooooh boy did it work. 10 sets of 10 every day & each of my arms has lost 7 inches since giving birth. Proof you don't need a lot of time or money or equipment to change the way you look."

Look, I weigh over 200 lbs but I would never go out with my arse hanging out like that. Seriously.

Too funny! Susan Clemens in Aliso Viejo, CA says, "I don't have a yard (I live in a second floor condo) so I create miniature gardens as centerpieces or to sit on my desk so I always have a garden view. I've been doing this for about a decade. Gardening and miniatures were both fascinations of mine - and just about every kind of crafting hobby - and they all come together in my tiny gardens."
Promised myself I would post my results online to keep me motivated. So here it is. This summer (may) I was determined to look as fit as I felt. I was weighing in at 168, the worst shape and the biggest I have ever been. I told myself I would not hit 170 and to start getting my butt in gear. I started working out on my own at my school gym with @Nora Viveen and eventually found a personal trainer with my bestfriend #meganferguson. I ended up gaining weight a little bit while I was with him and realized it was too expensive to move forward when i saw no results. When July hit myself and megan thought we would try out Limitless Preformance (@limitlesspreformance kitchener ) as you probably know i am in love with this gym. We started going 3 times a week and even than I started see amazing results. I felt stronger, faster, thinner and healthier because I got excited to eat right and work out. In august when megan went off to school I started to become a regular. No matter what day I was at limitless. I felt like a family and it never felt like a chore to ever work out as hard as I did. I pushed myself and all the older guys too ;) I am currently weighing in at 148 and continuing to eat healthy and work out as much as I can. I know I'm not the skinniest but that wasn't my goal. I am proud of myself and my results. Thank you to everyone who supported me, pushed me, and didn't believe in me
why you shouldn't worry... hard to do but oh so true! I have started letting go of my anxiety with God's amazing grace and patience and i feel like a totally different person.
So it turns out we're getting married
Brain fog--I don't think the docs can even understand what we are going through. I tried to get a glass of water from the fridge, but it wouldn't come out. I kept pushing the button that said water, but nothing came out. I thought it was broke--my kind husband came over and pushed my glass on the lever so the water would come out--lupie moment!

Antarctica, I must go! Ah, to think that if I would have chosen differently I could be there in a few months... oh well, I really love my little home in Denver
Oh the places you'll go
Southern Living buttermilk biscuits. This is my go-to recipe for homemade biscuits. One thing though--you MUST use light self-rising flour for them to come out right. UPDATE: I made these; sooo good. Didn't need anything on them. It's a recipe that's sticking with me. Yay!!!
I'm crazy...if you can't handle it...go be normal somewhere else. My kids tell me this all the time...so I must be crazy.

Essie Shine of the Times - I just got this and painted it on my nails over an opaque plum purple color, and it came out looking so pretty! The purple and the flame-y flakes in this make a sort of coppery color when the light hits it, I love it!
Mom talks about how the sibling feels: Thank you. I see this over and over in my little girl who is 8 looking out for her older brother. I

From the original post:
" Whenever I go clothes shopping and I find myself not too happy with my reflection or discover the clothes I really like don’t fit, I get my camera out and take a few photos of myself in the mirror instead of letting any negative thoughts creep in.
I took this one yesterday after discovering a dress I fell in love with the moment I saw it didn’t fit me properly around the bust. I did a few silly poses, a few sexy poses and a few happy ones where I smiled as widely as I could and focused on all the things about me and about my body that I like. I came out of the fitting room feeling really positive about myself and how I look instead of brooding over the fact that the dress was too small for me.
I really recommend doing this when going clothes shopping - it it’s a great way to chase away any negative thoughts or disappointment if clothes don’t fit!"
Almost perfect-front garage=guesthouse. I love the porte cochere and garage in the rear...need two office spaces downstairs-seems rather large, but I also like two sets of stairs. Kitchen not my favorite, but I like that it looks out over the back yard, and is connected to the family room.
My memories our our yard sale shopping was of my mom opening the door and starting to get out before the car actually came to a stop!! I would tease her by hitting the auto-lock button so she couldn't get out. //media-cache6.pinterest.com/upload/176062666652572029_tll98lex_f.jpg www.tappocity.com myblessedlife Amandacool stuff
In West Hogwarts, born and raised, makin potions is how I spent most of my days. Chillin out, maxin, relaxin all cool, and all fixin quidditch matches outside of the school, when a couple of death eaters, they was up to no good, started killing kids in the neighborhood. I got involved with he who must not be named and my headmaster got scared and said, "You're movin in with muggles out in Bel Air!"
Mini Samoa Bundt Cakes - I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the classic Samoa Girl Scout Cookie turned into a…mini bundt cake?! This is pure EVIL genius! How am I suppose to make these without eating them all in one sitting? I just adore toasted coconut and anything that it’s plastered on. Looks like I’ll be investing in a mini bundt cake pan very soon! You’ve got to go check out the recipe and baking instructions over at Tablespoon. These are a must try!
