I went to Sweat Yoga! Bikram Yoga :)

I've been going with Aimee to Bikram Yoga.  I've been five times now (going EVERY day! even in the morning sometimes!!  I took a vow to never exercise in the morning because I hate it - I think going anyway means I'm maturing.. lol)

I was told by my husband and even the teachers that I would hate the first time.  I thought I would too since the room is heated to 100ish degrees, BUT I actually really liked it!  Probably because with the buckets of sweat flowing out of me I really felt like I was cleansing my insides.  Knowing it's doing good helps me push through.  In my opinion normal yoga classes are much harder (posture wise) but the heat makes even simple moves hard.   I've since learned that I need to only sip water and breath in and out with my nose.  Those two things have helped A LOT!
They have an introductory rate for newcomers - 10 consecutive days unlimited classes for $20!  That's what I'm doing, and I'm halfway through it.  I feel myself improving each time and I'm loving it!  I also love the fact that I come out of there SOAKING WET!  :):)  The room stinks (although I don't notice it much now) and the ceiling fans in the room are just to taunt you..lol,  no...they turn them on at the end. :)

Aimee is doing the 30 day challenge, meaning she goes EVERY DAY for 30 days!
If she misses a day she doubles up on another day.  She is posting daily on Bikram Yoga's Facebook page.  Check it out and see how she's doing. (click on the Everyone tab to see her posts if you can't see them.)

Aimee will also post here every Monday.  Watch out this monday for a Bikram Yoga Giveaway!!

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
