Superfluous post

Okay, this is really just an excuse to plug my mom and sister's blog, called The Skinny.

I am not nearly as motivated as they are to lose weight this year, although I am working out twice a week with my mom as her exercise buddy. I am not a super home baker, or a walking or running guru, so mostly I am just trying to be a supportive commenter, so that they know someone is reading the blog and wants them to succeed.

However, one of my suggestions did make the blog today. I knew watching Rachel Ray while I was pumping milk for Maddy had to pay off someday. lol In this case it paid off in having an idea how to make chocolate cake healthier. You replace the eggs and oil with pumpkin! YEAH!!

So, if you are feeling a need for some inspiration, head on over to their blog. You can grab a "button" which says you read The Skinny, and Katie is promising a contest sometime soon for loyal readers. Katie is super crafty and has a wonderful eye for putting fabrics together, so you know that whatever she gives away will be wonderful. If you want to check out some of her craft ideas, you can see one of her other blogs at Notes From a Very Red Kitchen.

This post does NOT seem superfluous to me! You've got all kinds of important info here. :) I, for one, really appreciate your support.

Ha! Thanks for the compliment. I always spend far too much time agonizing over fabric matching and I'm still never as satisfied with my choices as when somebody else picks it out for me. Glad to know it doesn't LOOK like I'm terrible at matching fabrics. Thanks!

And thanks for the little plug for The Skinny! I'm glad you're enjoying it!
