Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

First generation organic.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

I've been telling people for years to keep a detailed list of every penny they spend in order to find out "where it goes" ... I'm sure most of them just laugh at me. But, Greg and I found out we each spent almost $200 a month on little or frivolous things...and that was a lot of years ago. That did it!! we were trying to save a good sized downpayment for our first house and were getting nowhere til then.... but, we figured if we could add that $400 a month to the pot...voila!!...we'd soon have it. We did.....


A toasted onion or raisin bagel and coffee used to be my everyday breakfast. *Sigh*, now that I am old and have slow metabolism, it's saved for special times. So my daily breakfast is either cold cereal with fruit or oatmeal. There is nothing like a toasted crunchy bagel with cream cheese and a cuppa cawfee! So New York! LOL
