February 2011 Archives – 4/4 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


*Updated! The lucky owner of the energize your morning kit is in the comments! Sweet or savory? I always go sweet, especially at breakfast time. Yes, I have a weakness for all things pastry and cake. Doughnuts, muffins, danish? Yum. But, unfortunately, most baked goods aren’t the healthiest way to start your day. And diet […]

Aaaaand that’s the wrap! We hope you enjoyed doing the January projects (future self writes letter to current self, writing out your goals and putting them into action to become your own life’s CEO.) If you haven’t done the January projects, feel free to play catch up this weekend! Choose any and/or all projects and […]

Happy Friday! It’s time to share all our favorite links from around the internet in our weekly-round up! These may or may not be health-related today, because it’s Friday and I’m lazy and my head hurts. I received a late birthday present this week– a gift certificate to Gussy Sews. Ohmycuteness. Whatever shall I pick? […]

Did you all know that the USDA put out new Dietary Guidelines this week? There’s a lot of information in the report about specific calorie needs, activity needs, and just lots and lots of info. But you know what? The USDA was nice enough to put out a little one page list of suggestions for […]

Time sure does fly when you are having fun, doesn’t it? And you are having fun, aren’t you?! I’m having a great time, albeit a busy time.  We are in throes of crazy “let’s put our house on the market, find a piece of land to buy, meet with architects and builders and pick one, […]

Except! I’M NOT GETTING ANY SNOW! Really, what does a girl have to do to get some snow? (Note: Dear Mother Nature, If you wish to give me snow I would be so very happy, but please bypass Thea’s town. Love, Me.) Anyway, tonight is Tuesday and you know what that means! Yep! It’s time […]

I am so excited to introduce Laurie to all of you! She’s been hanging around her at the Sisterhood for awhile, so you might recognize her! When we put out a call for new writers, she was the first to respond. Like within 37 seconds! After reading her submission, I knew she had a very […]

If it’s Tuesday, it must be time to take out the eraser and clean our slates.  They say confession is good for the soul.   This is the place where we confess our wicked ways, but we can also celebrate the things we did right.  No matter how bad you think your week was, I bet […]
