About Me

My photo
This blog is about what happens to a former newspaper photographer when she becomes a mama and moves home to raise her kids. I'm a wife to my best friend Michael who is a photographer for the Tulsa World. I am a mama to two beautiful girls who make me laugh every day. I was born and raised in Oklahoma and I think it's a wonderful place to raise our children. I was a newspaper photographer for 13 years before leaving to stay home with my girls. One of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I am blessed with the ability to stay home with the girls mostly but also freelance photography some. Sometimes I can't believe I'm actually getting paid to do something that is so fun! I recently heard someone say "I spent my 20's thinking I knew everything and I have been spending my 30's proving myself wrong." I relate so much to that because I realized a while back that I spent my 20's thinking mostly about myself and my career and I have spent my 30's mostly thinking about our children and how I could stay home with them more and work less.

Food Find!

I broke up with bagels over 3 years ago when I joined Weight Watchers. I lost 46 pounds 3 years ago and have only had one bagel since I joined WW. It's just one of those weakness foods for me and I have to stay away. Did you know some bagels can be 9 Weight Watcher points!!! I only get 21 points a day so that just wasn't going to fly. They just aren't worth it to me any more. I found these new bagel thins at Wal Mart the other day and they are only........wait......this is exciting......1 WW point each!!!! And it comes in Everything flavor which is my FAV!!! Can you tell I'm excited? They basically took a bagel and gutted it and made it really flat. You still get the flavor just not the gigantic bread blob of a bagel. That actually still sounds really good to me, a gigantic bread blog. Yum! If you pair this little bagel thin with a laughing cow cheese wedge it's only 2 WW points total. That's just what I had for lunch and it was GOOD!!


  1. Always love a good food find!! Thanks for sharing girl...

  2. I just had the cow cheese todayat a pals house, i have always loved Laughing cow but hadn't bought it recently and did not know about the yummy flavs. how crazy you would write about this today!

  3. Oh, that's my favorite cheese now I have something to put it on! Thanks for sharing your find!!!

  4. Love the idea of putting the Laughing Cow on the bagel thins. And I just happen to have some. I may just make this my lunch today - thanks!
