Advocare 24 Day Challenge: Take Two

September 22, 2014 duchessoffork 2

Today is the start of my second Advocare 24 Day Challenge. I completed the challenge back in January and had great results. Back then I needed a kick in the rear to get my healthy eating back on track. I’m in need of the same rear-kicking right now, so I’m giving …

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and I’m not talking about Christmas. It’s college football season, friends! My love for the Florida Gators runs deep. The Duke is a die-hard Crimson Tide fan. We are a house divided and are quite proud of our respecti …

I’m currently on Day 4 of a five day clean eating challenge. My eating has been way off track lately and I need to get my mind right. Surely I can make it through five days of clean and healthy eating, right??? So far, so good. The only catch is that I’ve missed b …

Over-Stuffed Kit Kat Cookies

September 2, 2014 duchessoffork 3

These cookies are insane. Ridiculous. They’re so addicting that I made them on two separate occasions this weekend. Chocolate chip cookies. Stuffed to the max with chunks of Kit Kat bars. You’re welcome. People constantly ask me for my cookie recipe because they t …

I have happily been a stay-at-home-mom for more than three years. I haven’t worked in a classroom since the school year ended in 2011, just a couple months before Julia was born. I have greatly enjoyed being home with my kids all of this time. We’ve created quite …

When I met The Duke, I wasn’t really into sweets. Sure, I thought cookies, cakes, and candies tasted fine, but I never craved them. I’d bake for my college roommates without even sampling the cookie dough. What sane person does that? Passing up perfectly delicious …

If you’ve been reading my blog for even 5 minutes, you know that we LOVE Mexican food around here. The four of us could eat it morning, noon, and night. Julia could eat an entire bowl of queso dip in one sitting if we’d let her. Heck, I could, too. You’ll fi …

A Low Key 3rd Birthday Celebration

August 1, 2014 duchessoffork 1

I love birthdays. Adore them. It’s the one special day of the year that is all about you. Birthday celebrations around my house last at least a week. My mom prefers to celebrate hers for a solid month. My birthday is coming up on August 11, just in case you were curious …

My Sweet Julia, You are three years old today! The day you were born seems like just yesterday and a lifetime ago, all at the same time. We’ve lived so much life over the last three years, and you have been at the very center of it. Our home is a much sweeter place sinc …
