What I Wore High Low Dresses And Wardrobe Malfunction Confession


 As someone that's self employed, and works from home,  it's easy to slip into a rut of wearing yoga pants day in and day out.  Which is why I am doing my best to post a What I Wore post  every week. This is my attempt at holding myself accountable for my appearance, and not slipping into a fashion rut.

Reduced Fat Strawberry And Marshmallow Dessert Wreath

I have a confession, I don't care for the taste of marshmallows very much. I usually only like them covered in chocolate. My kids however love them.   Today I am sharing a new crescent wreath recipe, for a reduced fat dessert. The filling of this wreath is fat free! Combined with reduced fat crescent rolls, it makes for a dessert with less guilt.

Anything Goes Linky # 150 Up Early,Treatment Update, Calling All Bloggers With Etsy Shops, And Features

Grab code from right side bar please. 

Welcome to the party! For those that celebrate, I hope you all have a safe and wonderful Easter weekend ahead of you! I am posting  the linky a little early for those that will be living it up on Good Friday.  As for my breast cancer treatment plans, I am still in waiting mode. I met with the medical oncologist yesterday. She is recommending I have a full mastectomy if genetics determines I carry the mutated breast cancer gene.  Unfortunately I won't know if I do, for a couple more weeks, so my treatment is in limbo.  I will meet with the radiation and genetic specialist both on Monday, and test results will take about 2 weeks.  Patience is not a virtue I typically posses, but I am working on it.

Before we get started, I have a quick announcement. I know many of you have an Etsy shop. For those that do, I would love for you to join my NEW Bacon Time Team On Etsy!  Did you know the vast majority of sales on Etsy generate from team promotion and treasuries? Once my team is formed, I will start creating a weekly treasury from the members shops, and will ask the team members to do the same. The plan is to generate free advertising for everyone in the group.

Now for some fabulous features:

Baked Maple Bacon Pancake "Eggs" shared by Little Miss Celebration.

$3 Fabric Napkin To Pom Pom Pillow Cover shared by View From The Fridge. 

Trash To Treasure Peg Board Makeover  shared by Just A Girl And Her Blog. 

Spring Mantel And DIY Art shared by Remodelando La Casa. 

Vintage Melamine Easter Tablescape shared by American Honey. 

Now it's time to party!

When Almondina told me they had healthy cookies they would like me to review I was thrilled. When they arrived, I poured myself a big cup of hot coffee, and got to work. My husband came home, and saw me eating cookies on the couch, and asked what I was doing, I declared "working". Yes the life of a blogger is truly hard work ;)

What I Wore, My Dirty Secret, And Closet Cleaning

Here is a peak at a few outfits I wore recently. I am not in love with either of them, but at least I am not in my robe.

These carrot earrings are perfect for Spring, and make a great gift to the gardener in your life.

Frugal Easter Egg Earring Tutorial

I can't take credit for this idea, my crafty 5 year old came up with it. He noticed a package of  tiny Dollar Store foam eggs that I recently purchased. He said we had to make earrings with them, and so we did. We love to craft together. These will make great frugal handmade Easter gifts. We hope you will give them a try!
