Computer Woes

One of the troubles of having a blog is what to do when your computer breaks?? Such is my situation currently. Pretty sure I have lost all my pics and documents that haven't been backed up yet. Luckily only since June. The good news is I'm under warranty so it is not costing me money.

What does this have to do with my blog? Well I may be slow to post for a few weeks unless I make it out to a library. Its pretty labor intensive to post from my phone. Don't go anywhere! I promise to have some awesome reads when my computer returns!

Zumba Ministry

Alright friends, family, blog followers and readers.... The time has finally come that I get to teach a faith based Zumba class!

Wait. A what?

Yes. You read correctly. This is a Christian based Zumba class unlike any Zumba class you have probably taken before. I know you're chuckling to yourself right now picturing a bunch of crazies raising their hands to Jesus and prancing around to "Jesus Loves Me." That's NOT what this class is. Not that either of those things are wrong mind you, just not in a ZUMBA class!

Myths I Used To Believe: Splenda is Better Than Sugar

OK, here I go.  I have truthfully been putting off this research because I knew it would lead me to look into sugar in general and ultimately convict me to severely reduce our family's intake.  And quite frankly, I LOVE sugar!  Hello my name is Kristin and I'm addicted to sweets.  I'm not unlike most people in this aspect.

Breakfast Zucchini Muffins (AKA Cinnamon Muffins)

I wish I could say that we have oodles of zucchini growing in our garden but we don't.  I think we have animals that carry away the new buds before they have a chance to grow.  So far we have only harvested two.  They were two very tasty (and large) zucchinis but that is all we have gotten.  The good news is zucchini is very cheap right now!  I had started looking up all kinds of recipes in anticipation of a great crop.  There's no way I'm letting one little small detail get in the way of trying out new stuff.  I'll just go to my favorite store, Sprouts, and call it good.
