Pumpkin Pie Yogurt!? Not so much....
Saturday, September 10, 2016      5 comments

Well I was all excited to try some light Yoplait Pumpkin Pie yogurt this morning I found at the store yesterday. I really did NOT like it. I'm guessing they put real pumpkin in it (which is a good thing) but it just tastes too squash-y and les... Read more

Small Successes
Friday, January 08, 2016      4 comments

I slept in more than I wanted to this morning, but feel good and have the day off. Changing to an earlier bedtime is the hardest part. I find I really just can't manage to get up on less sleep than I need so the earlier bedtime is key. I WILL do... Read more
