I know that most of you are not actually from New Orleans, but I wanted to share with you that the Got Milk? Mustache Mobile Tour will be rolling into the French Quarter Festival on April 18th and 19th.   The tour will be focusing on the wellness benefits of milk and each event will have a Wellness Beverage Center where people can sample local processor milk and lowfat smoothies.  Families can also take a picture with Milk Mustaches!

The Not-So-Blog

I figure since my blog has a new look, so should I so….I am officially back on the bandwagon.  I didn’t take a picture of my scale this week, but let me tell you, it was NOT pretty.  I am trying not to let it get me down because I know that I have lost the weight before, I can do it again!

My friend April at Just Typical Life and I have preordered this book and I wanted to share it with you!  Right now, Hungry Girl is taking preorders for the April 14th release of her new book, “200 Recipes under 200 Calories.“  I am so excited to get some more recipes that will help me reach my goal.
