Let's Talk Fashion

I know I've never been known for my style. No one has ever said, "Hey, there's Suzanne, she's always dressed just right." It isn't me. And I'm okay with that. 

I did, however, birth an offspring that these words can be said about. How that happened I'll never know, but my girl has style. Lots of style.

Anyway, can we talk about fashion rules a little?
I mean the basic ones. 
The ones I'm pretty sure no one is talking about anymore.

#1 - Please don't wear a dark bra under a light shirt. This is not attractive. No one wants to see your bra. Your bra has one purpose. To keep the girls in place.

#2 - While we're talking about the girls....yeah, I'm totally going there. Can we keep them out of sight? I am so tired of seeing boobs. One of the reasons I prefer winter to summer is that the boobs stay hidden for the most part.

#3 - This is along the same lines as #1. If you wear dark underwear please don't wear them under light colored pants. This is not a good look on anyone. 

#4 - While we're talking about pants...sometimes we all gain a few pounds and our pants "still fit". Well, just because you can get them zipped doesn't mean that they fit. Do a backside check in your mirror. If you can't see back there then have someone take your picture and show you. You might be surprised at what the rest of us have to see.

#5 - Belly shirts are not for grown women. I'm sorry, they just aren't. They look cute on little girls, but not on big girls. I saw one a few weeks ago that was showing stretch marks to the world. No, just no.

#6 - Yoga pants. Do I really need to say anything more about this? They were made for yoga. If you aren't doing yoga then don't wear them. If you have to wear them then please, I beg you, just wear them at home.

#7 - Leggings. Very similar to yoga pants. Very few women can pull these off without wearing something that covers them to mid-thigh. I'm talking like 2% of women. Most likely this isn't you (I know it isn't me!) Leggings can be cute, but they can also show way too much. It's best to get a tunic or long sweater and just be comfy and fun with that look.

#8 - If you are showing a camel-toe then you need to change your pants. This should never ever be seen. It's just ick. 

#9 - Just because it comes in your size does not mean you should wear it. You know what I'm talking about. I'm sure you've seen it at the mall. Or Walmart.

And that is my little lesson for today. Tune in next time when we discuss deodorant and soap.

Small Changes: Peanut Butter and Jelly

I eat the same thing for breakfast every single day. Most people think it's weird, I just think of it as fuel to get my day started. I was never big on cereal, mostly because I don't like milk. Other than a little splash of it in my tea I don't drink it.

I start my day with an organic brown rice cake with peanut butter and jelly on it. It works for me. The peanut butter provides protein and the jelly provides the yum.

I prefer the Lundberg Farms brown rice cakes. Brown rice is a good carb, white rice is a bad carb. White rice has no nutritional value and turns to sugar in your system. Brown rice is a whole grain and is a much better choice. 
I get the lightly salted ones. I find these in the organic food section of my favorite grocery store.

Now, let's look at some peanut butter and jelly. For the peanut butter I just chose Skippy because it's a brand that everyone is familiar with. I prefer the natural peanut butters, but if you don't like the texture of them and …

It's Not A Blessing if you Had to Sin to Get it

Pretty strong words but also very true. I once heard a man say his girlfriend was, "A gift from God." 

Except she wasn't because she was still married to someone else. Glenn wiggled in and turned her head and snatched her away from her husband and children.

How dare he think God had anything to do with that.

He doesn't work that way. If you want His blessings then you need to walk closely with Him. He will never bless sin. He can't. He is unable to. Sin is what separates us from God. 

Glenn may think he is living a blessed life as he runs on emotions and feelings but nothing like this will prosper. In the end it will lead to destruction. 

It already has. The family he destroyed will never be the same. 

Small Changes: Shredded Cheese

Today we're not just talking cheese, we're talking shredded cheese. This is the time of year when everyone has a party or picnic to go to, and most of the time you need to bring a dish of some kind. Many of these dishes call for cheese.

Sidenote: I'm so in love with cheese that I have to restrict it from my diet 99% of the time. I cannot be trusted with the creamy goodness that is cheese. Colby. Cheddar. Mozzarella. Gouda. Gorgonzola. Monterey Jack. Cream. Pepper Jack. Sigh. I love cheese, but it does not love me. It tempts me ever so. Today at lunch I splurged and order chicken parm. I only ate about half of it and that should last me several months. My body works much better when I stay away from cheese and dairy in general. Though, surprisingly, ice cream does not affect me in a bad way. Hmmmm.....

Anyway, back to cheese. Many recipes call for shredded cheese and the food industry has listened and provided a myriad of choices in the shredded cheese department and they hav…
