Weight Watcher Wednesday.....

I confess, I am a "chip-a-holic"....especially Lay's. Oh, and I can eat just one - ONE BAG - that is. I don't buy them for that very reason. Even if I am not hungry, I can eat potato chips. In my quest for healthy and satisfying foods......I discovered KALE CHIPS. Never eaten kale, wasn't even sure what to look for in the produce department. But I found it, pre packaged and ready to go.

Simply, simply, simply and GOOD.

Wash and pat dry with a paper towel. (either the packaged or the do it yourself tear apart)
Place the leafs on a cookie sheet, that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray
Spirtz with butter or virgin olive oil
Sprinkle lightly with salt (I used seasoned salt)
Bake at 350 until crispy, about 8-10 mins

WALLLLLLLLAAAAA - chips - and they were good. I ate the whole cookie sheet. For WW points - 0 and for other calorie counters......very little and a great source of green veggies!

Gotta Love That Man....

I am a simple girl. I married a simple man. This is one of the presents he got me for mother's day.

When we got in the car Sunday, (leaving the second of 2 weddings we attended this weekend), he handed me this....(this is a local lumber yard)

I opened it and in it was this.....(cast iron)
And it will go here........

Gotta love that simple husband of mine !
Thanks for my present!
Love you !

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Incorporating Color
Linking up today with Kati from for the weekend review.

THE GOOD....2 weddings and a graduation. Sounds like a movie title. I am blessed to have 3 nieces with major milestones in their lives.

Cayla, graduating from college on Friday night. Good Job Girl !
So proud of ya!

Chelsea married Aaron. A very country wedding. Her entrance into the ceremony - the theme from the.....drum roll please....
THE GOOD, THE BAD and THE UGLY..priceless!!
Congrats to you both - love you !!

At last, but certainly not the least,
Katie and Jacob tied the knot on Sunday.
Blessing and love to you both!!

THE BAD......Mother's Day was very un-eventful. Hubby had to work. My kiddos were not home and I spent most of the day by myself.

THE of the things I do - that I love - is to volunteer. I think you can't get a greater since of knowing you are doing a good thing than to volunteer your time. I volunteer at both a women's shelter and as of last month have taken on the task of volunteering with an organization that sits with babies and toddlers that are in the hospital - as the result of domestic violence. On Sunday morning, I sat with a 2 year old little boy with a severe brain injury. He was removed from his family last Friday, completely. How UGLY is that - how in the world can anyone beat and abuse a child?
The children's hospital is amazing and wonderful, have the most loving and caring staff I have witnessed. This is a small blessings in the tragic/ugly lives of those little folks.
