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.

This looks delicious and I have been on such a soup craze lately. I wonder if I could shorten the cooking time by using ground beef? But, I'm worried that it might make the soup greasy. In any case, I'm definitely going to try this one.

Wow! Your blog has the most amazing food on it:) Those donuts made me start craving Krispy Kreme!
Thanks for visiting me - I look forward to a Year of Color:)


omg.... shouldn't you just be home in bed? or at least on the couch?...just recuperating? Trying to carry on as usual...sometimes makes things worse. Try to rest as soon as you drag your poor body home from work Diana.....

hugs, V.

Oh- I wanted to tell you that you'd love SuzAnna's Antiques in Raleigh (here's their blog address
I have one booth there and another at Gresham Lake Antique Mall that's right near SuzAnna's. Both are good places to find fun vintage items.

If you get Cynthia's weekly Ornamentea/Panopolie email, you might remember her sponsoring a Vintage Trunk Show after Thanksgiving. Well, that was me:)

I look forward to visiting your blog for food inspiration:)

Thanks - Stacey


Ohmygosh! I was just looking at a crock pot version of barley beef soup tonight. This looks WAY better -- thanks for posting!
