My Dining Room On The Cover Of A Magazine?

Bringing The Outside In ~ In An Alabama Dining Room
Decorating With Colors From Nature
This is my Dinning Room, as you can tell I love to decorate with earth tones, and I love to mix in furnishings that you may find outside. I'm a inside out girl, and a outside in girl. You can see my Living and Dining Rooms on my Friday, April 4th, 2008 post.

Smart Shopping Ideas
I always try to shop thrifty unless it's something I really, really, fall in love with then it's kinda touch and go and a lot of guilt but, I get over it.

Fat Free Living
I've been trying to eat fat free and decided to post my weight loss on my blog, right now I'm at a complete stand still. Last I posted 166. and this morning I weighed 166, but this evening I weighed 168 but I figure it's just the weight of the things I ate and drank today. I have lost a lot of inches I'm in a size ten women's in bottoms and a large in tops, when I started I was in a 14 bottoms and XL in tops. I still have some tummy weight that I want to loose. But right now I'm just tired, of the attention I'm giving it. I'm still on board though.

Quick And Easy Meals
My quick and easy meals, result to a sandwich.

Living With High Blood Pressure
I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure and I'm doing pretty good with my meds, I must start back exercising, I have stopped completely, that's probably why my weight has not changed.

Making Exercise Fun
If you can find out how to make exercise fun, let me know.

Meeting New Friends
I have met a lot of great friends blogging. Women and men, and I'm so thankful for you all.

Sharing With Others
I enjoy sharing thoughts, ideas, lives, and the hearts of all of you.

My Husband, My Friend
My husband is my best friend, and I am his. We are always there for each other, don't get me wrong we have our arguments (over the TV) but we get through it. :O) There are a few other arguments that crop up from time to time but nothing major, probably my fault mostly but, we'll save those for another day.

How I Found Jesus
I found Jesus through a very tragic time in my life but, I'm so glad I found Jesus.

Giving Praise and Thanks to Jesus
Giving Praise and Thanks to Jesus is the one thing we all should incorporate into our lives.

It's All In The Name Of Jesus
Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,
so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:8-11

Oh My! Your very own magazine, Deb! ~cheers 'n tosses confetti~

Great Cover design and very interesting content! I was so tickled to hear about your size up-date! That is awesome and I'm really happy for you! Your words about Jesus were so uplifting and came at a good time... thank you for always sharing so much of yourself. Your blog-home is one of my very favorites to visit... God bless...

Isn't it neat when we finally get that "conversion" in the mighty change of heart? If you ever want to hear my story, give me a holler on my blog profile page email and I'll send it to you to read. I am NOT boring, my sweet kissy chick! Hah.... Hope you are feeling less sad, honey pie.
Smoochies (Kisses!)

okay, I know we're kindred spirits now! my fav easy meal...other than take-out or a doughnut (which I try not to do very often) or baked fries...is a sandwich :) ...or spaghetti with a slop of olive oil, salt & pepper & oregano...hmmmm, this could explain the whole weight thing...

(and never ever weigh at night...that is the most depressing thing on earth...I mean, of those little things that can be depressing...but good for you, changing your clothing sizes like that! I'm happy/impressed/madly jealous :)

This turned out great! I had forgotten how pretty your dining room looks. I think it really would be fun to read all the "articles" too! As you could see from my latest blog, I have been having way too much fun creating different magazine covers.
