a pre-supper snack.

i visited one of my favorite stores today - trader joe's.  i can't tell you how happy it makes me feel stepping into that store.  monday starts my gluten-free kick, or at least i'm going to try it out and i better have enough self-control to stick it out, so today i picked up a few items so i can test out the waters.

this evening before supper i was ravenous.  i then remembered that i had picked up baby carrots, along with a tomato & basil hummus. filling, but not too much, i decided i would munch on a few of these before i ate.  it did satisfy my craving for sure and it was such a delicious combo!

what else do you guys eat with hummus that is gluten-free besides carrots?  pita bread is out of the question and i can't think of too many other options really. i love that there are so many different varieties of hummus because it's super tasty!

i have to admit that i'm pretty nervous about starting on monday and even though i know it will be good for my stomach, skin, and mind, my body sure is going to freak out without its daily fix of chocolate & sweets, that's for sure. 

keeping my fingers crossed!

rules to life.

ok, so i'm back after many weeks of not posting!  hopefully my body and computer will cooperate now so that i can get back to regular posting.  i have really missed it.

oh, and by the way, i am going to be getting a new blog design this week!  i am so stoked about it, so if you see a different look, you're not at the wrong address!


rules to life - i saw this cute thing on facebook this morning and decided that it's something i wanted to post.  these are definitely 7 things that i need to follow a lot more often.  i think by doing this, my life would feel a lot less stressful and i would appreciate it more.  we will see . . .

1.  make PEACE with your past so it doesn't spoil your future.  your past does not define your future - your actions and beliefs do.

2.  what others THINK of you is none of your business.  it's how much you value yourself and how important you think you are.

3.  time HEALS almost everything.  give time, time. 

4.  the only person in charge of your HAPPINESS is you!

5.  don't COMPARE your life with others' and don't judge them.  you have no idea what their journey is all about. 

6.  stop THINKING too much.  it's alright to not know the answers; they will come to you when you least expect it.

7.  SMILE.  you don't own all the problems in the world.

a little blue.

the dream tree has been out of commission for about the last week, if you haven't noticed.

i haven't been feeling the greatest lately, both mentally and physically.  there have been ER visits, doctor visits, hanging out at home and trying to keep my anxiety under control. i was not blessed with a proper functioning female department, if you know what i mean. let's just say it hasn't been a fun last month and we're still going. . .

hopefully i'll be back in just a day or two with some more uplifting, fun posts.

i hate being a negative nancy all the time.  my doctor even told me today that i was a pessimist!

until then, i'll leave you with this cute funny.  dogs are one of the greatest things in life (:
