So for dinner I decided to make home made beef stew from my crock pot.

Ingredients
* McCormick beef stew seasoning packet
* pre sliced beef( already sliced and ready to go)
* sliced up green bell pepper, onion , fresh garlic, red potatoes, carrots
* seasoned with a little bit of salt and pepper

The instructions are on the back of the McCormick season package. I cooked my stew for a hour 4 hours on high! It turned out delicious , but next time I am planning to use a roast.

Enjoy
Bon Appetite

2013 IS THE YEAR !!

So it is the year 2013 and to be quite honest I can’t believe it is finally here. Trying to wrap my mind that it has been 13 years since 2000 came upon us. To think the world should of ended last month. Whew I am glad that I lived to actually tell about it. LOL

So I have already cut my hair and added highlights to add to the new year, which in fact I feel pretty darn good about it. This year I want to make a difference. I know everyone says this when a new year comes around, but I MEAN IT!!

There is so much that I want to accomplish and well I feel 2013 is THE YEAR!

For starters I want to be more involved with my blog. I haven’t blogged as much as I should, but I feel confident that I can make my blog as successful as any other blogs out there. My passion for writing burns deep within my heart and I shouldn’t be afraid of it. You like that, haha it was pretty heart felt if I say so myself. I also want to invest in my first Canon XSI. My mom got a more expensive one for Christmas and I automatically fell in love. I think I have a talent for photography that needs to grow as well and what more exciting than to incorporate the two.

Secondly, I want to also find the time to travel as much as I can which means SAVING $$$. It is important to me to see the beauties of this world while I only have this one life to live, plus I want to also give my daughter the memories she deserves.

Here is my Travel To Do List:

  • Los Angeles- to see all that it has to offer
  • Colorado- ski and hike
  • Grand Canyon- Always wanted to see
  • Mount Rushmore- Always wanted to see
  • Hawaii- I heard every day is like paradise over there
  • Phillpines- to see my other family
  • Paris- to fall in love
  • Italy- to really taste REAL Italian food
  • PLUS SO MUCH MORE

I also want to slim down before bikini weather comes. This will be the biggest struggle, but I feel that this year will be my year to accomplish all my goals.

And to conclude this evenings post I also wanted to include my small ongoing debt that I have had since I was a late teenager. Today’s world is only going to get more dificult and I need to be more prepared for myself and daughter. SAVE SAVE SAVE and making wiser decisions.

Overall, I believe that this year will be the turning point of something great. Deep down I know what I want for my life, but right now I need to tie up some loose ends inorder to get EXACTLY what I want. Stay tuned for more of my blogging. Hope you will continue this journey with me.
