Hungry-Girl, Yay! {diets}

Well, I am one happy woman, let me just say! I discovered the BEST cookbook last weekend called Hungry Girls' 200 (recipes) under 200 (calories)! I was already doing a lifestyle change for my diabetes and had recently rejoined Weight Watchers online to help me. And it was working. But I was hungry....I am definitely a Hungry Girl! I love food and always supermodel anorexia for me! And I know how hard we women are on ourselves..."I'll do pictures of me when I lose 10 lbs" or "I don't like how I look in photos" know all the reasons we don't want to be in the portraits. And family portraits are so important. So ladies, here's a great way to jumpstart losing those pounds we all probably found over the holidays!

So I got this book and devoured it over the weekend...and went shopping on Monday. I sent my "bad" foods home with a friend on Tuesday...see how good I am being? lol Anyway, this book and author takes the stuff we really like to eat (junk food/fast food) and converts the recipes to low fat / low carb / healthy recipes.

Now I am no cook but these are easy! I made one of the breakfasts this morning (see attached image) was the best breakfast sandwich I have ever had! Sorry Whataburger! She has a website and if you go to youtube and goggle hungry girl you can find tv appearances etc. It's that time of year so I thought I'd pass along a great website! Enjoy!

Playa Del Carmen Mexico {DFW Wedding Photographers}

This Keller photography studio had the pleasure of photographing a wedding this past fall in Playa del Carmen. Wow, gorgeous, gorgeous (but very hot) wedding location. The resort where the wedding was held, was 4 stars and out of this world. The happy couple live in Houston but the bride is the best friend of one of my long time Southlake customers and I'd met the bride several times. It was an honor take wedding pictures of their special day. Although, it was very hard to leave my beautiful suite with hot tub, 4 poster bed, room get the picture.

And speaking of's a few from their big day!
