What a wonderful day

I woke up this morning and got the kids off to school and then got myself ready to head to school for a few minutes.  On my way to school I stopped and took this picture which is my picture of the day for my photo challenge, today is day 12 out of 365.  Just click on the picture to enlarge.
After taking care of a few things at school I was driving home when I decided to take this picture.  You can see why I had such a wonderful day it was beautiful outside today.

My eating wasn't to bad today either.  Here is what I had.

Breakfast- 1 1/2 cups bran cereal
                 1 banana
                 1 cup skim milk
                 water (16.9 oz)

Snack- 1/4 cup mixed nuts
            1 peppermint patty
            water (16.9 oz)

Dinner- 2 fresco ranchero chicken soft tacos (Taco Bell)
            water (16.9 oz)

Snack- 1 cup applesauce

I got my exercise in early today by walking 3.6 miles in 53 minutes around my neighborhood.

Now for a very special thank you.  I participated in a weight loss contest hosted by Stephanie at  I won the contest and the prize was two of her homemade candles, well I got them today.  Oh my god these things smell good enough to eat.  I got vanilla hazelnut coffee and cinnamon bun.  Its like sitting down and having a hot steaming cup of cappuchino and a warm cinnamon bun.  I may not be able to have this stuff in real life but at least I can now light these candles and enjoy the smell of them.  Thank you so much Stephanie I love the candles.


  1. You're very welcome. I hope you enjoy them. :)

  2. Love the pictures and congrats on winning the candles..

  3. YAY! I'm so glad that you had such a good day :D
    And those candles sound yummy. I want to get a pumpkin scented one. It would make me so happy, lol.


  4. Christina, I love love love both of those pictures! I wish i was a picture taker as the other day I was driving in and the moon looked so fabulous with the way it was turned and you could see both the light side and the dark side and it was magnificent. A cell phone pic would have done it no justice whatsoever, but a good camera would have had an awesome picture.

  5. Thanks Debbie.

    Raych pumpkin would be really nice for Thanksgiving, would remind me of pumpkin pie.

    Thanks so much Shane, there are very few pictures that I take that I really like but these are two of those. You should just buy you a camera and start taking pictures if its something you want to do. I pretty much carry a camera with me everywheres now and you never know what you might be able to snap a picture of.

  6. Sorry didn't mean to miss your comment Stephanie, of course I'm going to enjoy them, do you have a shop online where you sell your candles?

  7. I used to have a website, but since I only sell them at my Mom's Florist now, I decided to shut it down. With the economy the way it is, my online sales went way down, so it was the best decision, although a really hard one, to make. :(

  8. Sorry you had to do that Stephanie. Its hard these days with so many people not having jobs. At least you can still sell them through your moms shop. Maybe in the future when things pick back up you can go back to selling them online again.
