wow where have I been?!

I just realized, I haven't even signed onto my blog in about 6 months....
so the big question is what have I been doing?!
for starters...

I'm a homeowner now!!!
I decided to take the leap and buy a townhome closer to my job! Its a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath...and I absolutely LOVE it!
Its quiet, its in a good neighborhood, and its not too far from my family.

Pinterest, HGTV, and Lowes are my new BFF'

Besides that lil doozie, I've been working and enjoying life. I am truly happy and thankful for all the opportunities that I have been recently presented with.

Just wanted to check in... I gotta get back on my frequent blogging!

A Whole New World....

Long time no see....

I've had many big changes to happen in the last month....
I'm now living in GA (which is home for me....yep, Im a GA Peach!) and it has been such a large transition from what I'm use to that I haven't formed my ultimate opinion about how life is now...

I left one awesome job and thank GOD i had a job in GA to go to before I left FL....

also been looking for a house and a new whip....


But Seriously, I'm pretty tired....& I miss my old job....even though ive met some potentially cool people, it sucks being the new girl again :-(

Fill in the Blank FRIDAY!!!

So I do realize that I haven't blogged in a while BUT in MY defense...I've been a busy lady! Packing to move to a new state, attending weddings, and looking for a job tends to take up a little time.

But in the spirit of FRIDAY, i'm back and wishing Lauren@ a VERY happy birthday! Follow her blog folks!

fill in the blank friday.

1.   My most favorite birthday was       my 16th birthday. My parents got my friends & I a limo, we rode downtown and went out to Mick's for dinner....after that we went to a fun center with Cosmic bowling, go karts, and laser tag and played for hours. That night everyone stayed over and it was sooo much fun! *happy sigh*

2.  My worst birthday was  my 20th... I did absolutely nothing and all my friends were out of town.

3.  My favorite birthday memory is    the year where at least 18 people called and sung their version on happy bday on my voicemail lol I felt soo loved .

4.  The best birthday present I've ever received was  ummm car was a pretty awesome gift although it didnt really come on my bday, it was a couple of weeks after.

5.  The  best birthday present I've ever given was      for my father's 50th this year, my brother and I came home for a few days (visiting from FL and OH) then we threw him a HUGGEEE party!

6.  Birthdays are     fun, but I don't often put that much emphasis on them... . I'm more of a Christmas/ Valentines Day kinda gal!

7.  My favorite age so far has been       21....I felt like I was waiting on that age was the typical night with my girls in a college town! Went out to dinner, they got me a cake, met some random folks from FSU and just enjoyed my night...simple yet effective

Feeling a lil Fishy! (Susie Homemaker Edition 2)

That RARE feeling has hit me yet again....I wanna get in the kitchen and make something! I had to find something somewhat low in calories and fat....low carbs would be great too but hey its my bday weekend (so I dont care!)! Since I've been craving seafood, I decided on Crawfish Soup (similar to a bisque but NO flour!) Took about 10-15min! 3 steps and I was done!!!!

Ingredients used
Coconut oil                  Green Pepper
Stewed Tomatos          Diced Tomato
Onions                         Garlic cloves
Crawfish tails               Chicken Broth or H20
Low fat Cream Cheese

Old Bay                       Cayenne Pepper
Sea Salt                       Creole Seasoning
Pepper                         Garlic Powder

Don't have specific amounts used (ie. 1 cup, tbsp, etc) because I was just winging it...literally throwing stuff in a pot.

1st I put a little coconut oil in a pot and added my onion, peppers, diced tomatoes, & garlic and let it a sauté a bit...

2nd Add the crawfish tails, cook for about 5-8min, and season (til' your heart fills happy!)...

3rd Add your chicken broth or water (I didn't add too much because I wanted a chunkier soup) stewed tomatoes, and then add the cream cheese, then cover and let it simmer for a little while so it can thicken.... and WALAH! FINISHED!


Fill in the Blank FRIDAY!!!

yep...its that time again!!

{the delicious sweet biscuits @ Tasty n Sons}
1.   My plans this summer include     celebrating my b-day tomorrow (yay!!), family reunion the week after, and then preparing to move to Atlanta.

2.  The best summer I ever had was   probably the summer after I graduated college...I studied and passed my board exams and relaxed with friends all summer! I found a job quickly and moved to S. Fla....then the bills came and I was forced to grow up! lol

3.  Summer is   fun, relaxing, time spent w/ family and loved ones, and vacations.

4.  My favorite summer food is   anything at a cookout!! Although, I have to admit, this summer has been ALL about the seafood (I'm preparing a seafood soup right now).

5.  The best way to quench a summer thirst is with     water! Pretty lame huh? lol

6.  My summer uniform consists of       scrubs and dresses...

7.  The best thing about summer is       that I always take time off of work around my birthday to just chill and enjoy life....ya know, its the little things

Happy Birthday to ME!

A Scrubby Situation... Weight Loss Update!!

So yep....I'm still working at this healthy life transition thing and although I am hungry ALOT of the time (like right now lol)....I do feel better and I'm appreciating the results that are coming (slowly but surely!)

So here's my "scrubby" situation....I work at a scrubs no longer fit! I'm looking all frumpy and the cheapness in me refuses to purchase new ones (ONLY because I'm only going to be at this job for about a month then I'm moving) I feel like thats a pointless expense.
Soooo.... guys, just pray that my pants don't fall down while running to a code blue....(i can't pull that look off, i ain't skinny yet! lol)

scrubs that were tight a few months ago....

scrubs in the mirror at work.....

pulling the scrubs on one side looking for some type of shape!

40lbs down...

pray for me guys....this is difficult!
