Kelly is Inspired: Bacon Egg and Toast Cups

With everything going on in the world,I feel guilty thinking and searching for a back pack for school. Yet,it's time. My brief case and purse are too small. I am all of 5'1" tall so I can't have a bag that is too big yet I love the Kenneth Cole messenger bags. I like the color black because it goes with anything and regular back packs looked too kid like. What bag looks like "Hi ,I am a 5'1" ,47 year old woman who went back to school? lol

The green reminded me of St.Patrick's day which led me to this refreshing drink of choice down another isle:
I looked for the receipt on the website so I wouldn't think about eating after 7pm on day 6 and found the following:
WHICH JUST MADE ME THIRSTY AND LONG FOR ST.PATTY'S DAY! GO FIGURE!
6 ounces World Market® French Roast Coffee
1 tablespoon Torani Irish Cream Syrup, available in stores
2 ounces whipping cream
1 tablespoon Irish Whiskey*
Mix the coffee, Torani Irish Cream Syrup and whiskey together in a warm, clear glass coffee mug. Place a spoon on the surface of the coffee and slowly pour the whipping cream over the spoon. Slowly move the spoon up as the layer of cream thickens to ensure that it remains on the surface of the coffee. Allow the cream to float on top without stirring.

It amazes me when I find great prices for nice clothes. The seller is moving away from business attire and I, currently taking real estate classes, am heading towards changing my attire. This, mind you, is coming from a woman who still wears thumb rings and only dresses up for interviews, weddings,furnerals and graduations.
I am more the very casual business girl who likes comfort rather than a skirt. Several friends call me a camillion. I change looks daily from casual jeans, gothic, gypsy to hippie. I call it "Rachel Wear". I never let trends define me however first impressions are crucial in the business world. I am uncomforatable in restricted clothing and don't get me started on nylons. They are so confining just the thought of wear nylons makes me itch! Don't get me wrong it's not like I wear sweats all day yet just the thought of slacks and blouses make me start to hyperventillate. Change is good in every aspect of our lives. When was the last time you were out of your comfort zone?
After years of being together Tito and I can actually sit and talk without the kids being present. It was nice to have an unexpected date night. OK so it wasn't the most romantic dinner with me eyeing the clock however there was a sense of simplicity that I longed for when I was younger. I guess aging with grace isn't so bad. I will accept the gray hair and laugh lines with a sense of humbleness. Funny, Tito just came over to the computer as I longed for words to write he says in his Sylvester Stallone speak, "Hey...Yo Rachel you want the last piece of pizza?" I replay," No, Rocky I mean Tito go for it". I guess in life we have to go for it or we will miss that last piece of pizza in life.

This lamp caught my eye. It actual works! I must have been in a nostalgic mood because this was the vibe I was drawing from this weekend's yard sale adventure. From old pictures to lamps it was nice to see other peoples treasures. Speaking of treasures, "Baby", who managed to get into the photo, is our family treasure. She was abandoned as a baby. By the time we were asked to adopt her, she had been in 4 different homes-she was only 4 months old! Now, here it is 2 years later and she is a treasured Princess who rules the house.
mentioned the picture belonged to her Grandmother. The colors are pretty and
spring like. I wish I could wear a similar dress and not embarrass the

- I came across this blog and it was awesome!
|"Pondering the Basics "|
On my medical leave sabbatical from giving readings I have learned many lessons. Thought I would jot just a few down: Can anyone relate?
• Practicing what I preach is not as easy as I thought.
• Between bills, food, work & family life - how do you really find "me" time?
• I don't like uttering the words" No, I do not predict exact lotto numbers".
• No, I will not fit into skinny jeans.
• All families have drama; we could all have our own reality shows. Hmmm...Wonder what the title would be?
• How do we age gracefully without forking over hundreds of dollars?
• With modern technology today WHY CAN'T SOMEONE CREATE HAIR DYE THAT LAST LONGER THAN 4 WEEKS?
• Can the Glenn Becks & Al Sharptons of the world hug with grace and humility?
I could go on and on,as I am sure you could. I think we just need to sit, reflect - get all the blues out of our system and recharge.
For today let's reflect on gratitude,family,budgeting,food,shelter , giving & prayer .
Let's get back down to the basics .
B- ALANCE - Even flow of activity with self & family
A- PPRECIATION - Gratitude for the good and the lessons
S- IMPLICITY - Peace of mind with self and spirit
I- NTEREST - Passionately create a bucket list and do
C- ARE - Giving back to family and community
S- AVE - Living beneath your means-yeah YARD SALES!
