Financially Free Fridays!

I miss having Frugal Friday!!! lol It is so fun to read how everyone saves money through shopping, or making homemade cleaning supplies, or starting home businesses!

I thought perhaps I would give anyone an opportunity to link up their blog here this week..and leave your Frugal tip!  Just make sure to link back to my blog!  

Suppose I should call it something else, lest I be in contempt of copyright. lol So we shall call it Financially Free Friday! lol (Had to come up with something!)

My Frugal Tip:

I am practicing for my sisters Wedding Reception Cake. We decided her cake would be covered with Fondant! Of course I have never worked with Fondant before. So I have much practice ahead of me. I found that making my own Fondant was 10 times more cost affective and much tastier then the store bought "stuff". The pictures to the side are just a couple of practice attempts lol (don't laugh too hard lol)

Here is the recipe I used for the homemade Fondant! Click

Link your Frugal tip below with Mr Linky

I have always been too scared to try fondant. Your sample looks nice. Is it very hard to use fondant?

Way cool! I'm scared of fondant, too! Crazy, I know. Thanks for hosting F.Friday! I miss it too!

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
