In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

Today, I kissed the brown bag goodbye!

Many of you know that I have been sick a couple of times this last semester. I truly believe it is because I have been so busy that I haven't been eating, sleeping, or exercising properly. Well , now that I have a little time off I started taking my daily vitamins again. I also started exercising yesterday and today I treated myself to a gourmet meal. It has always been an unspoken rule in my life that I save the best of everything for company. I usually eat the ends of the bread and use the mug that has a chip in it. Don't get me wrong, I love treating my guests. I especially love the smiles on their faces when I serve something yummy, but today I decided to treat myself. Instead of grabbing the bread and making a turkey sandwich for lunch.... I went all out. I even used the good china! I must say that I impressed myself. It only took me 15-20 minutes and it probably cost me less than $4. Who says being frugal or healthy has to be boring?
In case you were wondering: Citrus Grilled Tilapia with Avocado Salsa and Steamed Asparagus drizzled with Hollandais Sauce.
