A bit Manic

Well, we've made it to New Year's Eve with the world still in orbit and a few new feet of snow, well maybe 6". Any hoots, I just finished cutting up all of the veggies for the veggie tray and I need to make the low fat dill dip that I will serve with it. You know, I may go to the store to get the things I need for the fat free cilantro one.... hmmm..... Yes, I will. Now if I can only remember the recipe. I think I need tomatillos, cilantro and fat free mayo. Hmmmm.... I have been looking forward to the dill dip my mom used to make when I was a kid that is just mayo, sour cream, dill and accent. With the light versions of the mayo and sour cream, it's not too bad if you go light on it. Hmmmmm... I think I am done with the store and spending money this year :D Plus, I am not a big dipper any more. I don't need much at all :) Life it good. Changes are good :)
Now on to a more world shattering question, Why is Chex cereal SO good??? Seriously? I don't really like it for an actual breakfast cereal, but Chex Mix is HEAVEN and those Muddy Buddy things with chocolate and peanut butter are DIVINE! Who knew that some weird cereal could change my world forever. Thank heaves a few hundred, ok, about 20, of our closest friends are coming over tonight to eat us out of house and home :) I should only end up with just one or two handfuls of those two deadly treats :) I bought a whole case of diet Sunkist for me to keep myself out of too much trouble ;D Oh, and I did make the Bourbon Chocolate Pecan pie last night. Our company ate the WHOLE thing! I only got my one regular piece and the rest was devoured! I am so glad that I have family with good taste and a hearty appetite :) The only one who did not finish her piece was my nephews new fiance. It's a good thing she was sitting across the room from me and that my nephew finished hers off, or I would have had too ;D
AND, just to let you know, I don't believe that anyone reads my ramblings, so if you do, LEAVE ME A COMMENT and tell me HI and Happy New Year!
Have the best night ever and do what you can to make good choices. You might not be "perfect" tonight, but you can be pretty darn close :) I am forever amazed at how different my choices are. I was reminded of this quote a few weeks ago by Tina, one of my sweet members in Payson, "How can I become a Butterfly?" she pensively asked. "You must want to fly so much that you're willing to give up being a caterpillar."

I am going to use this quote to keep me on track tonight. I really want to be the butterfly. I don't want to be the caterpillar who eats her way through the world ... or a party :)
Have the best night ever! Drive save :)
