Hello all! Sorry for the hiatus, I’ve been super busy going through my stuff in storage! Also been spending some time with a good friend of mine who just had twins!!

They are growing up fast already ^_^ I also had the pleasure of going to 98Rock’s Big Night Out in St. Pete with my dad. That was a lot of fun…except we got rained out and didn’t get to see the last two bands lol but I got to meet Alien Ant Farm, so it was a pretty successful day I’d say!

It was a lot of fun actually!! haha A quick update, I’m down to only 60lbs from my goal weight and back in a 14/16 pant size. I got really lax with my eating and exercising and gained about 15 pounds, so I’m really excited that I’ve taken it back off.

I feel sexiest after a workout!

I love being able to walk the dogs, because it forces me to get out and move, and I’ve started running again to train for my first 5k! Lucy is loving gong running with mama! hehe

Anywho!! I thought I’d post a super delicious recipe that I found on pinterest and decided to give it a shot a couple weeks ago! Inside Out Caramel Apples!!!

Start with:

Two Apples (I'd recommend a tarter apple such as a fuji, gala, or granny smith)

One bag of Kraft Caramels (14 or 16oz I believe)

Once that gets going,

Cut the apples in half and scoop out the insides, brush with lemon/lime juice to prevent browning (I didn't brush them quick enough hehe)

I used a strawberry huller to scoop the insides, it worked really well actually

Be sure to keep and eye on the caramels too!

Take your granola,
