Happiness and Finger Paint

Good Day Friends!

Please note, this post was originally posted on February 27, 2012

I am really sorry for my absence in the bloggin world of late and to make a VERY long story short it has been a difficult winter this year with many challenges for me.

However, I am learning to keep my head up and find my optimistic side again!

I made this for a YW Lesson a while back and I thought I would share it here too, this quote has made ALL the difference for me and I am really striving to live by it!

It’s a 300dpi resolution jpeg, so please feel free to save it as a picture on your computer. Just let me know if you have any problems.

In other news, I have opened a dayhome (or home daycare as my state side friends say). It’s been an interesting journey! Little kids are so funny!

I have started looking for more fun things to do with them, so if you have any tips, please pass em on!

In the meantime, we have run out of kids paint. That stuff can get kind of exspensive, so I decided to make some myself and came across this tutorial by Easie Peasie, over at Squish Preschool Ideas facebook.

 If you have little kids, this site is Pure Awesome Sauce!

Anywho, I will keep you posted on how this goes down! 🙂 It could get messy! 😉



Making the Jump…

So I am finally making the Jump!

The Jump to wordpress that is. I am actually nervous and excited as hell to do it though! lol

Please be patient with as this will be a learning curve for me.

Why now?

I am taking a new Web Design course and as part of it we are creating a wordpress blog. How convenient for me! ;P

I will be spending the next little while moving every post from my other blog (Periwinkle Pixies Blogspot) over to here. I know I will loose some comments and for that I am deeply saddened.

Thanks for coming along the crazy journey with me as I switch from blog to blog to yet again, another blog. This one I am determined to keep as home. At least for the next 6 weeks (for those who know me, I tend to loose interest in things quite regularly…)


The First Confession of a Chocoholic…

So I love chocolate.

When I say that, I really mean is that I go crazy – can’t live without – must have or die – need Chocolate to survive. It’s bad, but also so delicously good at the same time. I can it all day, any time of day.

It only made sense that when I came across this recipe that I add it to the MUST EAT NOW list.

What’s the MUST EAT NOW list?

A collection of all my favorite foods that I will regardless of diet, size, color, shape and weight I am in at the current time. It’s a good size list, but mostly inlcudes: dark chocolatre, milk and white chocolate, those little conversation hearts from Valentines Day, strawberries in cake or with ice cream or both, white rainbow bit cake, pizza with fresh pineapples and mushrooms, and much much more….

Anywho… back to the recipe…

You know the kind that hardens after you put it on ice cream? YEA! That one!!!

Except that I am now a Primal Diet (more info here) and do not eat ice cream very much at all. *Little Tear* I didn’t let that stop me from enjoying this though! Instead I cut up fresh pineapple, strawberries and raspberries and threw them in the freezer for about 5 minutes.

The end result as you can see was AWESOME! It tasted so good! I am definitely adding it to The List.

 Here is what I thought Looked “pretty” for my blog…

Here is what mine actually ended up looking like… A nice smooth blanket of dark chocolate over top of those sweet little goodies underneath! I can’t help it! I am a REAL Chocoholic!
