Burgers and Vegan. Do they go together?

I’ll tell you – YES they do! My vegan R&D team does a great job of finding things for us to eat so we aren’t scrambling for dinner. Since they work and have school, the real test of vegan comes at the dinner hour. To date, we’ve eaten a bit later than I’d like but since it’s all so good and not a heavy meat and potatoe based dinner I don’t feel all weighted down after we eat.

Robin On The Roof- collecting food for DFW area food banks

Posted on Jun 3, 2011 in Family, ScrappySlim Blog

Robin is on the roof right now. She will not come down until she raises the awareness of the hunger in our communities.

These came today from our son in VA (and his fiancé). Thanks SO much to both of you, what a wonderful addition to my office. And yes, I know about not putting photos in my blog that were taken w/ my iPhone, but that’s how I took it and that’s how I’m posting it. The flowers are beautiful, no matter what lens they were taken with!

Grand Canyon

Posted on Feb 5, 2011 in Family

James and I went to the Grand Canyon – alone. It was a great time. I love the Grand Canyon. This picture was taken at Sunrise which is monumental because James is NOT a morning person. It was cold that morning as well. Don’t put off today what you can DO today. Do it now so there are no regrets. Life is short, it doesn’t have to be...
