New Facebook page

Since I’m SO GOOD at keeping up to date on my blog (note sarcasm here) I’m going to give FB a try. My of my posts for social media will still be on Instagram http://instagram.com/xanandali & I’ll try to get myself in a better habit of blogging. Eventually. I’ll be doing a couple giveaways in the next couple weeks so follow me on both so you can win! Plus, makes me happy to see how “liked” I am 🙂


kcw fall 2013 flashback

I don’t recall what I posted about last time on KCW, but it was my first time doing it and I had fun.  Here are a couple things I’m pretty sure didn’t make the cut in time for pics… I did also repurpose a couple sweaters into dresses for Alison as well.

Tie in back halter top, with shirring at waist. Chambray “jean” skirt.

Slouchy cardigan (I used the same fabric to make my orange top blogged previously but pretty sure I didn’t share this particular photo before.)

low carb high protein mini pizzas

This was SO yummy.  Pizza is a good way to go for getting most food groups all at one time.  Oh yum!


Ingredients Calories Carbs Fat Protein
Joseph’s – Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Mini Pita Bread, 2 Pita 100 14 2 10
Essential Everyday – Shredded Natural Mozzarella Cheese, Low-moisture, Part Skim, 1/4 cup 80 1 6 7
Hormel – Pepperoni Slices- 7 oz Bag, 14 slices 140 0 13 5
Prego – Spaghetti Sauce Flavored With Meat, 1/4 cup 40 7 1 1
Total: 360 22 22 23


Yeah, seriously, its really a very filling meal even if it doesn’t look terribly large.  I forgot to add spinach on it, which I would have enjoyed, but this was really good as is.  I could have gotten away with less sauce (fewer carbs) and less pepperoni (which would have been less fat but also would mean less protein.)
