Spring Snow, Weight-loss, my Cousin's Art, Missing Teeth, and More {SQT}

Life has been busy, so how about a quick update post!

1. First snow day of spring ya'll!

2. I have been (mostly) following the Trim Healthy Mama diet since February 1st, and I have lost 10 pounds. Plus, I feel good, and my energy level is up. I have exercised almost every day. 

3. I made this Cowboy Cookie recipe from Mrs. Criddle's Kitchen yesterday, and I love it. I didn't make cookies though. I baked it in a 9x13 pan and cut into squares. The recipe is not too sweet. Perfect for a breakfast bar. I ate two squares for breakfast this morning. I did adjust the recipe a bit. I used four eggs instead of three. I used 1/2 cup Truvia instead of Sweet Blend, and I replaced the 1/2 cup of ground oats with 1/3 cup oat fiber. I chopped up a Ghirardelli Intense Dark 86% cacao bar in place of the sugar free chips. 

4. My cousin Aaron has an Etsy shop for his art. I was 13 years old when he was born. He was such a cutie (still is). He was the ring bearer in my wedding. He expanded his talent through college, and I am proud that he is continuing with it now that he has graduated. Check out his art at AaronKeithHofferArt. And it would be wonderful if you made a purchase or shared his shop with your friends and family that may be interested in supporting a young artist. He doesn't know that I am giving his shop a shout out! I just want to support my cousin! 

5. A couple weeks ago I shared my list of things that I want to do before I turn 40. One of the things was that I wanted to try Jamberry nail wraps. I placed my first order last week, and I hope they arrive today or tomorrow. I can not wait to try them!

6. Ralph lost both of his top front teeth! Finally! One hung crooked for several weeks, and we could see the tooth behind it, but it was not loose enough on the one side to pull out. The other tooth fell out several days later.

7. I will be guest posting at Fumbling Toward Grace on Monday for the lovely Sarah. I hope you will check it out!
