When I can, I make a smoothie from skim milk, banana, berries and NatraBurst and I drink it as my dinner. It tastes delicious, I feel great, and it gets me one step closer to becoming healthy.
I have noticed that I am eating less and feeling full. I am getting my daily vitamins and nutrients from this drink and I have more energy.
I can honestly say it tastes great and I really look forward to drinking it.
I encourage you to look into it for yourself. If you have some weight to lose or not. If nothing else, this drink is a great way to get your daily vitamins naturally.

We have been enjoying the extra day light because of the time change. We were able to come home, eat dinner and then go for a walk. Tuesday
Got some more walking in today. This is the route I walked. This park, which is close to the house, is awesome! I can't wait to enjoy more walks, picnics and sunshine as the weather warms up. Wednesday
To get me through the day! :-) Thursday
We had a St. Patrick's Day potluck at work. DeeAnn made these cute little cookie hats. Aren't they cute? After work we had the Chastaine family over for dinner. I was able to hold this little bundle of joy most of the night.
Got my iTunes gift card in the mail today. This is one of many gift cards I have earned from Swagbucks. Saturday
Another fun day of fellowship. This is a very special family full of love for the Lord. Look at that face... how precious! Such a sweet couple!
My week was full of friends, fellowship and food. How was your week?

One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me.
I was maybe 2 1/2 years old. Someone had given me a little ' tea set ' as a gift and it was one of my favorite toys.
Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought Daddy a little cup of ' tea ' , which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home.
My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was ' just the cutest thing! ' My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up.
Then she says, (as only a mother would know) ' Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach water is the toilet?

Not sure what happened to my picture for Tuesday... Sorry!
The church spring banquet is right around the corner. We handed most of the invites out two weeks ago but we have had some new families come to the church and we wanted to make sure they got an invite also. So I made some extra ones. They don't look exactly the same as the first batch but I still think they turned out nice. Friday
Pam and Peter surprised me and Kathy by stopping by our work with these gorgeous flowers. Talk about brightening up our day! Thanks so much, you too are very special! Saturday
I intended to get some pictures but it just never happened. We had a full day. Spent the morning going around a neighborhood, knocking on doors and handing out pamphlets inviting people to our church. Went to the Argentine restaurant for lunch with Pam and Peter. After our delicious meal we went to watch Rango at the theater. Not my kind of movie but I think they enjoyed it.
Now let's see how everyone else is doing.

Here is how it works...
Groupon negotiates huge discounts—usually 50-90% off—with popular businesses. They send you a daily email and let you know the deals they have. You purchase the coupon and us it at that business. It's a win-win situation. You save lots of money, they get your business!

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds , 'What does love mean?' The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor , the little boy said ,
'Nothing , I just helped him cry'

Paul and Kathy have lots of wooden dishes. We use them alot for entertaining and just for fun. I took all the wooden pieces they owned and put mineral oil on them to keep the wood protected. Tuesday
I stayed home from work so the new carpet could get installed. This carpet is the softest carpet I have ever felt. I love it! Wednesday
Kathy got us tickets to go see The Phantom of the Opera. It was wonderful! Thanks Kathy! Thursday
We had these two amazing ladies over for dinner. We met them at church and have really enjoyed getting to know them. Friday
Cleaning out some drawers at work and look what I found. I couldn't believe it. Does anyone even own a computer that reads these old disks? Saturday
We went to California for a Steve Green/Larnelle Harris concert. The last time I was at a Steve Green concert was probably about 5 years ago in GA. Mike took me for our anniversary...such wonderful memories! Now let's see how everyone else is doing.
