And so it begins….

So let’s just say that I sometimes get bored at work and find myself looking at Facebook, Pinterest, other people’s blogs…the list goes on. When I was reading said blogs yesterday, I found a lot of similarities between myself and these bloggers (i.e. potty mouth, mom, soon-to-be-wifey, cook, obsessed with healthy cooking, large amount of weight loss within the last few years….Ok, I was just reading MamaLaughlin; she’s pretty fun). Why shouldn’t I start a blog? I can post pictures of my food here instead of Facebook so people stop bitching! And I can talk about how I try my best (and don’t always succeed) to be a kickass mom, fiance, employee, cook, daughter, sister, and worker-outer? We all know I already love to talk! So let’s just pretend that we’re having a conversation and you’re totally interested….ok?


What’s going on in my life right now, you ask? Everything!

I’m planning a wedding:

And I’m making healthy meals out of not so healthy recipes!Image

I know it doesn’t look like much, but that is the base for a dish PattyCakes introduced me to: Chicken Paprika with Dumplings. Sounds fattening, right? WRONG! Whole wheat dumplings and zero fat sour cream lighten this recipe right up!

I got the recipe here:  The above picture is from the add-sour-cream-and-flour part of the recipe. PattyCakes said it could have been thicker, so next time I will simmer this part for a bit longer, but other than that, he loved it! Score!

Tonight is steak night and it’s also Pi day! The bug (my son) and I are going to have some fun in the kitchen today! I promise there will be pictures!

Until next time,

Mrs. P




I am a 20 something focused on being a kickass mommy, fiance, cook, and worker-outer. I love everything about cooking (besides desserts, but I'm working on that), and I always try to make everything healthy. I live in Houston with my fiance PattyCakes, my son, The Bug, and my 2 puppies, Sir Reginald and Beaux. I absolutely love my family and would do anything for them. But I won't do that. I love crappy scary movies, disney movies, indie music, Hank III, classic rock, horribly childish jokes, naughty language, reading, Harry Potter, lifting weights, cooking, football, Nebraska, and being outdoors. I am getting married in May to the absolute love of my life. He is my greatest supporter in everything that I do, and my best friend and joke-provider. I lost a shit ton of weight a few years ago (193 down to 142 in 3 months) by eating healthy and doing P90X. I gained 25 pounds of that back, and am now working to get back down to a healthy weight using Weight Watchers and LiveFit. So far so good! So, read, enjoy, learn something, teach me something, and have fun!
