Family, Friends and Traditions! Project Parade Day 1

It's feeling like Christmas here in Idaho. We have already hit 22 below zero with the wind chill! Last weekend we headed out with friends and family to cut a Christmas tree. There was a couple extra feet of snow this year so....we got our exercise! It was fun and that's what it's all about. Family, friends and traditions!

This year Henry Glass is excited to present a Project Parade where we will not only share
great projects from 17 Henry Glass Designers, but also share with you a little bit about what we enjoy during the holiday season. It starts today! You can start your parade by visiting the first three designers on the list below!

This is how it works!
Everyday Starting December 1 and Ending December 7th
a couple fabulous designers will share with you a free project and something fun that makes their holiday special.
(I've already gathered up some pretty great ideas just from
today's designers!)
Each designer will have a "special word" for you to collect. You will
post those "special words" at the Henry Glass blog Dec 7-9. Contest ends Dec 9th at 8p.m. EST. Your comments will not be seen (so only post once). We just want to keep everyone honest!
Each designer will also be having a giveaway! These are all separate
from the Grand Prize Giveaway from Henry Glass!
Have Fun!

I Love Surprises!

I grabbed the mail today and this is what I found.......




Monday, November 1, 2010


Do you have those days when you think to yourself, I feel like crap. I want to feel better. Well....... I have been feeling that way for a while now. Not like terrible, but you know I've got a 35 year old body now and I think my not so good eating habits and lack of exercise the last few years has really got me thinking. Do I want to live to see my grand children! Well the answer is yes. So....I'm trying something new. The last couple of days Dr. Pepper (my favorite drink) is sitting at the store instead of my fridge. I've been starting the day with a fruit shake. Simply a cup of juice and 3-4 frozen fruits, and a scoop of fiber. It tastes great and well, we'll see what happens. So what do you eat that's healthy for lunch. My brilliant sister came up with this one. It was savory! Much better than a hamburger and fries!
I started with a lightly toasted piece of sour dough bread. Smothered it with cream cheese. Layered with spouts, fresh tomatoes from my neighbors garden, avocado slices, cucumber and finished with salt and pepper.

I'm pretty proud of myself to be honest. If anyone knows a good treadmill to buy, I'm in the market.
Hope you all enjoy!
