God is mighty! And Photos I Love *FOOD WARNING*

First things first...

Alabama is in a state of shock right now after all the devastating tornadoes have ripped through our state. Countless homes destroyed, many lives have been lost and cities torn apart. I thank God for keeping my family and I safe from these disasters but other people are not so fortunate. One tornado ripped through the city of Bessemer and was only about 5 miles from my house but we didn't have any damage thank goodness...just really strong winds. Pleasant Grove, a city where I basically grew up because my grandparents are from there, is torn to shreds. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the pictures on the news today. But God is merciful and mighty and will not be shaken. Please continue to pray for the families who have lost loved ones and who have lost everything they own. I can't imagine. Thank you for those of you who checked on me!


On a happier note...

I weighed 190.4 pounds this morning. Now if you recall I weighed the exact same last Thursday. This may not seem like a victory but considering all the food I ate on Easter and my weight of 194 pounds on the scale Monday morning (3 days ago), this is good news. 190.4 pounds is my lowest weight to date since my surgery so I was at least hoping the scale would read 190.2 pounds...but it will have to do. I am trying my best to stay away from all the candy that was in my easter back haha. Regardless, I am wondering when I will see the 180's?

I have been trying to figure it out...

And to stay on track to be 160 pounds by October 23rd (my 2 year bandiversary), I must be at 189 by the beginning of May...2 days away...and consistently lose 5 pounds a month. This is a hefty goal but we will see what happens.

My mom and I are joining Snap Fitness next week and this is motivation for me. Do any of yall go to Snap Fitness? I have never been there but it's pretty inexpensive to join, it is open 24 hours AND it is only 3 minutes (literally) from my I'm doing it. Maybe I will make myself go more than once a week :)


So for this picture post I wasn't sure whether I wanted to share with you pictures from Easter or a "Photo's I Love" post. I decided to do some pictures I love and I hope you enjoy them. We will do Easter pictures later!


These pictures are of deserts such as cupcakes, cakes and donuts so here is your warning. There are beautiful and delicious and fabulous.

Out of these 12 pictures, which are your favorite 3? Do you like donuts, cupcakes, cake or candy the most?!



  1. I am so glad your family made it through the storm without any immediate effects. It is so sad for the people who lost homes...and, even more so, those who lost family members and friends. You are right though that God is merciful and mighty and will not be shaken.

    I personally like cupcakes...chocolate and chocolate covered. I also love chocolate-covered strawberries. YUM!

  2. oh, Kristen I was thinking of you when I heard about the terrible weather- and when I saw your post on FB about power being out I got a little more worried. So glad to hear you and your family are safe!
    As for the yummies, I looooove cupcakes! and doughnuts and cake.... and candy too if someone offers, but my favorite is the little cupcakes with the sparkly frosting mmmm. :)

  3. That is so awful about the tornados. We were thinking we might get some down here in Texas last week. The wind was awful. They say this year will be bad hurricanes for Texas. Not looking forward to that.

    I'll take the chocolate covered strawberries and cake! yumm!

  4. I was thinking of you with all this recent tornado activity. SO glad you and your family are safe!

  5. I am so glad you and your family are safe... I will pray hard for others who are affected by this disaster. I love the NYC Cupcakes, the sparkly cupcakes and the gorgeous cake with Chocolate covered strawberries. Beautiful!

  6. Glad to hear you and your family are safe! All those pictures are wonderful, however I do love the handbag cupcakes! Just delightful :)

  7. Oh and the NY cupcakes, and all those lollies above the handbag picture - Yum!!

  8. So glad you are well, and so sorry about others facing such devastation in your area.

    The pictures are too much! Love!
