Feetures Socks Winner and Crispy Peppers

Hello, my friends!

  First of all, congrats to the 2 winners of my Feetures Socks giveaway, Zippy McZip and Amy Pond! I hope you ladies love them as much as I do!

Last night I went to spin class with the beautiful Brittany. I was the first person to get to class, so I was talking to the instructor for a little bit. We were talking about how long she's been teaching, etc., and I told her it's a dream of mine to teach spin or other classes. I just want to do something fitness related, and be able to help other people see their potential, and let them know that they can do anything.
 Long story short, she ended up taking my phone number and said she would have the manager call me, that they are always looking for substitutes. She asked if I would be interested in teaching other classes too; Pilates and strength. I said YES! She said they would train me and teach me everything I need to know.
 I am so excited, I can hardly stand it! I'm praying that they do call me, and I'm not getting my hopes up for nothing! I will keep y'all updated!!

 I have to share this funny story. I made myself a grilled chicken salad before leaving for class, and was going to eat it when I got home. When I got home I realized I had left my mini sweet peppers cooking on the (indoor) grill...for several hours!! Oops! This is what I came home to.


















Thankfully, it wasn't turned very high, so I didn't burn the house down or anything!!
 
Also, check out my girl, Cinnamon's blog today! She is starting something called Snap To It. It's a weekly photography tip/assignment program. Along with her photography tip, she'll also post an assignment for the week. I love taking pictures, and would love to learn more, what better way to do it?
 
Have you ever had a cooking fail? Tell me about it!

  6. I have a cooking fail EVERY time I attempt to make hash browns. I just can not get them to turn golden brown, or honestly even taste cooked. I can do RAW or BURNT TO A CRISP just fine though.

    I am happy your house did not burn down. : )

    I am delighted to learn about the photography tip/assignment over at Cinnamon's blog. I am always looking for ways to get better at taking pictures, this sounds great!

    Finally, I am happy I found you through Olive and Ivy. Looking forward to reading more.

    1. Lol, Lynne! I don't know that I've ever made hash browns, I probably wouldn't be too good at those either! I'm excited about Cinnamon's assignment too. I think it'll be fun. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  11. I don't like green peppers but love red,yellow, and orange peppers! The minis are really Good!
    I didn't get the cooking gene so I have cooking fails all the time!
    You would be a great fitness instructor because you have a success story of changing your lifestyle to a fit and healthy life. You can relate to those just starting out because you've been there.
