I've actually had great success with Weight Watchers in the past, so I've started back on that program. (Several years ago I stopped tracking, stopped going to meetings, and pretty much stopped being accountable for what went into my mouth. Needless to say, I gained back the weight I had lost. But I now have a new mindset, I'm back on track, and it's already starting to pay off!)
I definitely have a sweet tooth, so I thought I'd share this simple 3-point dessert with you... (It looks extra special in this beautiful "D" mug, a Christmas present from my good friend, Jill... Thank you, Jill!!!).
I really love Weight Watchers yogurt. They have such a wide variety of flavors (I used White Chocolate Raspberry, but you can use any flavor you like!) In a mug or bowl, mix together one WW yogurt (1 point) and one cup of seedless grapes (1 point).
Add a dollop of Cool Whip Free (0 points) and sprinkle .2 oz of crushed walnuts (1 point) over the Cool Whip. This is really filling and really good!!!
I also received awards from two lovely blogging friends....
I received this beautiful Butterfly Award from Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage (don't you love her blog name?) Claudia's blog is so much fun to visit... She and I are both animal lovers (we even have the exact same robin's egg blue/cottage flowered dog bed for our pets!)... She normally blogs about her home, her wonderful husband, and her fur babies in New York, but right now you can read about her west coast adventures (you won't believe how she turned a temporary furnished apartment into a cozy cottage retreat!) Thank you so much for this award, Claudia!
I also received this beautiful Special Friends award from Michelle at I'm A Little Teapot (another blog name that I love - that phrase brings back childhood memories for me!) Michelle is also a pet lover and she shares her love of family (and Rob's good taste in gifts!), and some incredible cross-stitch creations on her blog (she even cross-stitched ornaments for everyone this past Christmas - how special is that!)... She also shares amazing photos from various outings and trips (I want to move into one of the German villages she recently posted pictures of).
This award is given to... "Blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbon's of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these kind writers. When you pass the award along please include these guidelines."
As I have done with awards in the past, I would like to pass these two on to all the incredible blogger friends listed in my sidebar, whose blogs I love to visit and who share so much with all of us. Thank you all! And thank you, again, Claudia and Michelle!!!
