I'm still here!!! Are you????

Hi Everyone!!!
Thanks for being sooooo patient while
I enjoyed a LONG blogging break!!

While I enjoyed taking a break I also
missed all of you here in cyber life!

So I'm back.... while things here won't be the
same as when I left I'm hoping you'll still enjoy stopping by!
I won't be posting daily but more like 1-2 times a week.
I wish I had time to post daily but realistically weekly is
going to be challenging enough!!

In the last 12 months my kitchen life has changed
dramatically! Here's how.....

I rarely clip coupons (I know you're gasping in disbelief),
I rarely buy anything boxed or premade,
I make everything I can from scratch,
I haven't been grocery shopping at Meijer in 6 months,
I try to use a lot less sugar (and more honey),
We rarely buy pop/soda/whatever you like to call it,
I've banned HFCS from my kitchen (there are a few stragglers!),
I eat an apple and banana EVERY DAY,
Oh and not kitchen related but... I no longer use hairspray or mousse.

I don't tell you this because I have things figured out... No way...
while I feel like I've went miles in another direction, I
feel like I have thousands of miles to go...

I tell you because if you feel like you can't begin to make
healthy kitchen changes, YOU CAN!!!
Babysteps is the name of the game!!!

Hmmmm... I didn't intend for this post to get sooooo long!
I guess I'll see you soon!!
Before I go, Here's a current shot of my munchkins!!!

So glad to have you back! You are one of my favorites and I have missed you!.

Not big into coupons any more either because I don't buy the stuff the coupons are for any more. Baby Steps are the way to go - would love to know how you have managed to stay away from Meijer for 6 months though!

Kids are beautiful - man they grow up fast!

Megan, I have missed you so much! So glad to have you back and am looking forward to all of your upcoming posts! Oh! I just wanna give you a big hug! I have been taking a LONG bloggy break also. But, I will start back up here soon.

I'm glad you're back! I've missed your posts!

I had wondered what happened to you & hoped nothing bad was going on. I was deleting old emails one day & came across one from where I am an email subscriber & actually looked up your blog to see if anything was said on it since I had not received an email in so long. Glad you are back & all is well with you & your family!

Megan said...

Thanks everyone!!! It really is good to be back! Hopefully I can keep up with a post or 2 a week because I really do enjoy it and esp. all of you!!

Steph -- I still grocery shop but mostly go to E&S Sales (A local Amish Bulk Food store)! I'm sure I've missed some good Meijer deals but living 25 minutes from the closest Meijer makes it easy to skip them.

YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! (is that enough to realize how happy I am that your back?)

I think it's great you took a break and that your moving in a new direction....nothing wrong with that! I can't wait to hear more about your changes you been making and that journey and what you've learned.

Super great pic of the kids! Is that going on your Holiday Card?
