The Flu and Downton Abbey

I hate being sick. I am one of those big babies that gets beyond grumpy when I don't' feel good. The only bright spot in being sacked on the couch for the last 48 hours, is that I have finally been able to watch Downton Abbey, or as the little man calls it "Downton Abigail." The costumes, the British humor, the love stories, the amazing scenery, the gossip and scandal- how did it take me so long to watch this show? If I'm not feeling better tomorrow, I think I may be downloading the entire Season 3 off of iTunes. It's the small things in life isn't it? Any new series you are into? Photo

Tonight was one of those nights! I got out of work late and had to rush home get dinner ready, and head over to school for Bingo Night at the Book Fair. And as luck would have it, I totally forgot to put something in the crock pot. As I was driving home, my mind was racing trying to figure out what I could have for dinner. I am trying to be a littler healthier, still in the "New Year's Resolution mode," and I remembered a little Progresso gift pack I received last week, which included both Light Creamy Potato with Bacon & Cheese soup, as well as Light Chicken Pot Pie Style soup. With the whipping wind and cold temperatures we've been having in Upstate NY, it was a perfect soup and sandwich kind of night. Throwing together a healthy dinner of Creamy Potato with Bacon and Cheese soup and grilled ham and cheese sandwiches was even quicker than running through the drive-thru and at only 100 calories or less a serving (for the soup), I can feel good about serving my family! Mama's satisfied, Little Man is full and we are out the door in less than 30 minutes, dinner success! Thanks Progresso!

Let's Try This Again

It's been well over a year, since I've tried my hand at the blogging world. The main reason I put this adventure on hold was I possessed a dying laptop that would take hours to publish posts. Well that and I started this little hobby at the beginning of summer, when there was way to much fun to be had outdoors! Fast forward to now and I am still a busy mama, working in the world of corporate marketing, pining for an outlet for a bit more creativity, a spot to journal and throw my voice out onto the interwebs. So with a shiny new laptop in hand, a year and a half of blog reading and lurking, I have a more solid idea of what I want this space to become, I'm trying for a second time and hoping this habit sticks! Welcome Back! I'll be back tomorrow with my first blog giveaway!
