Our Adventure In CANDY LAND!!!

Hey Hotties! Last Saturday Anissa and I took a little Christmas journey to Candy Land at the┬áPenitentiary Glen Reservation. Growing up Candy Land was one of my favorite games. The colors and different characters allow you to transform into a world of gumdrops, lollipops, and dreams. I don’t know who was more excited to go on this adventure myself or Anissa. After about a 30 minute drive where my partner in crime fell asleep we arrive to the magic… We were greeted by forest rangers who gave us our magical game box. Inside the box were cards just like the … Continue reading Our Adventure In CANDY LAND!!!

Hey Hotties! How many of us remember that Toys R Us kid’s song. I knew when I heard it around the holidays Christmas was fast approaching. Well now Toys R Us is no longer around ( insert sad face), is that due to poor financial planning, biting off more than they could chew, like the Tootsie Roll commercial “the world may never know?!” What I do know is I don’t want to see any parent going broke trying to provide a “Christmas” experience for their family. So below you will find a few ways I am curbing my spending during … Continue reading I Don’t Wanna Go Broke!

Being Nanekia…UPDATE- Weight Loss Journey

We are still on this journey!!! For the last year and a half I’ve been doing what everyone says will help me lose weight. From taking a bunch of workout classes, to adjusting myself to different diet plans, trying weight loss shakes/teas and supplements.

When this journey first began I wanted to lose 50 pounds, that was my main goal. I focused only … Continue reading Being Nanekia…UPDATE- Weight Loss Journey

It’s A Shame! Part 2

So let’s just say in the last few weeks shaming has been at an all time high. I’m not sure why others take such liberties to tell you about how you should feel bad, but they do. I often wonder what do these people tell themselves when they look in the mirror or when someone corrects them about being who they are. How do they feel? Apparently not bad enough to stop doing it to others. In this week’s shaming story, it’s just me and this body that I am in, that I love but apparently someone felt I should … Continue reading It’s A Shame! Part 2
