Sunday, November 6, 2011 already?

Hard to believe the Holidays are just around the corner.
Where did this year go? Seems the older my son gets, the quicker the days fly by.

Well... with the cooler weather comes.. yup - you guessed it : Baking.

The pumpkin rolls, the apple pies, the sausage stuffing with feta cheese...Yum!
{the stuffing is courtesy of hubby...he makes the BEST holiday stuffing :) }

I cannot wait for Thanksgiving, (and Christmas, lol),  knowing that we will gorge ourselves on all the tasty traditions and yumminess the Holidays will bring. I have been working out over the past several months. Have slowed a bit in routine, but plan on cracking the whip this week, getting back on track.
I need to make room for turkey, sweet potatoes with caramelized walnut topping (Yum), baked delights...and of course, the buttery whipped mashed potatoes (my cryptonite) haha.

If I am going to go all out and enter the Carb-Zone...then I have to kick ass in the gym now- and stay with it. (lol-'cuz I will NEVER give up potatoes or stuffing during the Holidays, hahahaha!)

So- back to my regimen, this week I will be making my Awesome Crock Pot Chicken, to have throughout the week. Getting up early to work out at home, while hitting the gym after work. I LOVE the Spin Class I go to at Compass Gym- Niki is the BEST instructor, kicks your butt into shape. If you are in the area- give her a try : Compass Gym, Ocala - Hip Hop Spin Class. You will Sweat your butt off and lose some serious poundage!! :)

Ok - Happy Fall to all of you!

Fall Comments, animated orkut scraps, images, greetings

 I have been lurking in the background popping in at your blogs here and there, keep up the good work everyone!

It's a Boy!!!!.....and a Girl!!!!

Well.....not yet, lol- but soon to be. Just picked up a pair of baby Amphiprion Ocellaris (a.k.a. Nemo!) on Friday. They are doing well in their new home :

They are SOOOOO adorable! Kind of have an idea as to which will become the female, but alittle too early in the game to be certain. Will keep progress pics and see who becomes dominant :)

Spring Cleaning *

Ok, it's that time of year when everything is looked at and you decide whether or not you have room anymore, whether you really need something, or whether you have to part with items.
In my case- I have a time issue.
I am finding it harder and harder to focus on my aquariums, and work full time, and home life, and everything in life in general.
So- I have decided to clear out my bath/body products.
You can check out my listings on ebay:
user id: createdbychelle

I enjoy my tanks much more than I have time for making soaps and bath salts...sooooo....all my products will be listed to clear them out. 

Some may have been used once or twice, some are BRAND NEW- there are fragrance oils, essential oils, soap molds, colorings, sanding sugars, etc.

Be sure to check them out if you are in the hobby!

Ok, so in surfing around for something different while I am cooking, eh-hem, while my crockpot is cooking up some chicken: 6 boneless chicken breasts, 1 sliced onion, 1 can pinto beans, 1 can black beans, 1 can corn, 1 1/2 cups salsa, 1 cup chicken broth, some seasonings, along with some cream cheese to be added during last 15-30 minutes..... mmmm...

1 Fish...2 Fish..... Ooooh! Ohhh Another Fish!

My clownfish larvae have gone through metamorphosis
and are now itty, bitty baby clownfish!
They -several of them - have gotten their first head stripe, while there are a few stragglers...they will be catching up soon enough :) And they are coloring up nicely.

They are the MOST adorable thing to watch .....they know when feeding time is, lol! As small as they are - they all gather at the surface for food, and they are eating very strongly :) A very good sign.

Right now I am feeding them Otohime - and they love it!

Now- they are very quick, lol..... so here is just a glimpse of a few that stayed on camera:

Also- here is a pic of my new baby Picasso Clowns....these are about 4 months old:

Have been looking for an anemone for the Picassos.....the baby Ocellaris are too small right now for an anemone, but they will have a few soon enough :) Waiting until they are about a month old before I transfer them into their growout tank. And will have several anemones in there for them to play with.

Have a Great TGIF everyone!
