Last Saturday we spent the morning in Cleveland and we had some time to go shopping … I lived in Cleveland for over 10 years and one of my favorite things to do was go to the West Side Market on the weekends.  I love shopping here and miss being so close …..

Above picture … My favorite restaurant in walking distance from the Market.  I always would stop for hummus to go if we were not stooping to eat lunch.

So last Sunday marked the start of a lot of things….. So now I’m officially 2 weeks and not one Diet Coke! Yes, I’ve given it up! Along with giving up Diet Coke, I started a new diet or way of eating healthier!  Let’s just say all the changes are working last week .. I lost 7lbs!  Let’s just hope week two goes as well or that I survive it!  The hardest part for me is I went with ZERO desserts or sugar last week!  So my food blogging friends – you are killing me with all the YUMMY desserts but I keep pinning and maybe one day soon I will break down and try a new dessert! ;)

Just a fitting quote for a lot of things right now … my changes in my diet along with some fears I need to put behind me for some business decisions I need to start to make!

Well, my 6 year old received her first note from a little boy at school and this was what I was handed when I picked her up at after school last week.  I have to just laugh such innocent but boy was she embarrassed when I asked her!  she also informed me she was also writing him notes and well then she said she wrote back “We are done”  … that lasted a long time! lol

Can you guess what the picture above is?  Well, it’s the start to Birthday Party #7!  Lilly picked American Girl as her party theme so I’m in full swing of party planning!  Pictured above are mini plates, placemat, and cup for The American Girl Dolls.
