Wedding Song Wednesday- From This Moment On, Shania Twain

This song was played at my wedding and I LOVE IT!
From This Moment On, Shania Twain:

(I do swear that I'll always be there.

I'd give anything and everything and I will always care.
Through weakness and strength, happiness and sorrow,
for better for worse, I will love you with
every beat of my heart.)

From this moment life has begun
From this moment you are the one
Right beside you is where I belong
From this moment on

From this moment I have been blessed
I live only for your happiness
And for your love I'd give my last breath
From this moment on

I give my hand to you with all my heart
Can't wait to live my life with you, can't wait to start
You and I will never be apart
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn't give
From this moment on

You're the reason I believe in love
And you're the answer to my prayers from up above
All we need is just the two of us
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn't give
From this moment
I will love you as long as I live
From this moment on

Man Candy Monday - Rocco DiSpirito

Today I give you, Rocco DiSpirito, Celebrity Chef. Now, how sexy is a guy who can cook!!

Name: Rocco DiSpirito

Born: November 19, 1966
Occupation: Italian American chef based in New York City
Best known: Celebrity chef and a cookbook author
Awards: Sexiest Chef Alive by People Magazine 2002


Rocco's Low-Cal Brownies
Servings: Over 8
Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: 1-30 min

"Yes, you are reading the ingredients list correctly: there are black beans in these brownies. You really have to taste the brownies to believe them. The beans add moisture and texture—not to mention fiber and protein. These brownies have such a great fudgy texture because the cocoa powder, and just a little espresso powder, are the only dry ingredients (besides a bit of Truvia). For an extra jolt of chocolate flavor and about 15 more calories, stir ¼ cup dark chocolate–covered cacao nibs (such as Kopali Organics) into the batter just before pouring it into the pan. These brownies are even better the next day."

Nonstick cooking spray
1½ cups canned black beans, rinsed and drained
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon espresso powder
¾ cup egg substitute
2 tablespoons low-calorie sugar-free chocolate syrup, such as Walden Farms
2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream, such as Breakstone's
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
24 packets (84 g) Truvia or 8 tablespoons granulated Splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cooking Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray an 8×8-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.

Combine the beans, cocoa powder, espresso powder, and egg substitute in the bowl of a food processor. Process until the mixture is smooth, about 2 minutes, scraping down the bowl halfway through.

Add the chocolate syrup, sour cream, butter, Truvia, and vanilla. Process until all of the ingredients are combined, about 1 minute.

Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish, and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake for 28 to 30 minutes, turning the dish halfway through the baking time. A toothpick inserted in the center will come out with soft batter clinging to it.

Let the brownies cool completely in the baking dish on a wire rack. Then cut into 12 squares and serve. Refrigerate any leftovers.

Wedding Song Wednesday ~ Dancing in the Minefields

Todays song for your wedding is "Dancing in the Minefields" by Andrew Peterson.  Kara,
author of The Kimball Family Adventures sent this to us.  Enjoy!

"Dancing in the Minefields" by Andrew Peterson

I was nineteen, you were twenty-one
The year we got engaged
Everyone said we were much too young
But we did it anyway

We bought our rings for forty each
From a pawn shop down the road
We made our vows and took the leap
Now fifteen years ago

We went dancing in the minefields
We went sailing in the storm
And it was harder than we dreamed
But I believe that's what the promise is for

"I do" are the two most famous last words
The beginning of the end
But to lose your life for another I've heard
Is a good place to begin

'Cause the only way to find your life
Is to lay your own life down
And I believe it's an easy price
For the life that we have found

And we're dancing in the minefields
We're sailing in the storm
This is harder than we dreamed
But I believe that's what the promise is for

So when I lose my way, find me
When I loose love's chains, bind me
At the end of all my faith, till the end of all my days
When I forget my name, remind me

'Cause we bear the light of the Son of Man
So there's nothing left to fear
So I'll walk with you in the shadowlands
Till the shadows disappear

'Cause he promised not to leave us
And his promises are true
So in the face of all this chaos, baby,
I can dance with you

Of course, Katie and Cindy were super creative.  From the cake to the photo op to the games, it was all hand made! Here are the photos:

Wedding Song Wednesday ~ At Last

Today's suggestion comes to us from Colleen, author of Soundtrack To I Do-

"This is what my blog, Soundtrack To I Do is all about!! It's hard for me because I love SO many, but my personal favorite is At Last by Etta James." If you need more suggestions on songs, go check her blog out!!

At Last Lyrics by Etta James

At last, my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song
Oh, yeah, at last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clovers
The night I looked at you
I found a dream that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to rest my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known
Oh, yeah when you smile, you smile
Oh, and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine
At last

Wedding Song Wednesday ~ Sweet Home Alabama

Today we have a song suggestion from: The Wedding Queen

"Our family's favorite song for some UNKNOWN reason is Sweet Home Alabama.  I guess because it gets everyone  at the reception up and dancing.  We tend toward country or rock songs that are dance-friendly.  Of course that wouldn't work for  walking down the aisle!"

Lynyrd Skynyrd Sweet Home Alabama Lyrics

One ... two ... three ...

Turn it up

Big wheels keep on turnin'
Carryin' me home to see my kin
Singin' songs about the southland
I miss Alabamy once again and I think its a sin ... yes

Well I heard Mister Young sing about her
Well I heard ol' Neil put her down
Well I hope Neil Young will remember
A Southern man don't need him around anyhow

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama
Lord I'm comin' home to you

In Birmingham they love the governor
Boo, boo, boo
Now we all did what we could do
Now Watergate does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you? ... tell the truth

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama ... oh, yes
Lord I'm comin' home to you ... here I come ... Alabama

Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
And they've been known to pick a song or two
Lord they get me off so much
They pick me up when I'm feelin' blue ... now how about you

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama
Lord I'm comin' home to you

Sweet home Alabama
Oh sweet home
Where the skies are so blue ... and the governor's true
Sweet home Alabama
Lord I'm coming home to you
Yeah, yeah
My ... Montgomery's got the answer

Thanks for the suggestion Wedding Queen!

Summer is Here- Don't for get to Cover up...

Our friends over at KMR Communication are helping us out again with some great summer fun in the sun tips!


Filling your beach bag with your favorite summer skincare products puts you at ease for a day out, basking in the sun. BUT, are you really protecting your skin? The right products are only part of the process to insure proper protection from harmful summer rays. Are you covering all the bases? Sunburn does not only affect common areas—it “burns” its mark where you least expect it.

Dr.  Sandra Lee, a board certified dermatologist and member of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and the American Society for Mohs Surgery, put together a list of the
top six areas people tend to neglect when prepping for the sun:

6. Feet
Though perfectly manicured toes are important, sunburned feet can leave you “sole”-less. With painful sunburn on your tootsies, pairing your dress with those perfect summer heels may not be an option. Make sure to apply sunscreen to all areas of your feet to avoid any complications.

5. Back of Hands
Hydrating your hands with lotion, during your weekly manicures, is not all it takes to protect them from becoming dry. It is vital to protect your hands during the summertime, an area you may forget to tend to when stepping out into the sun.  Opt for a lotion that contains SPF 15 to 30 to protect and hydrate your hands.

4. Ears
Don’t forget to protect your ears, when applying sunscreen to your face. The skin on your ears is both sensitive and delicate, and the tops of your ears are particularly exposed to the sun’s rays. Throw on a wide-brimmed hat that is both fashionable and can help to protect your face and ears.

3. Chest/Neck
You don’t want “breases”, the vertical creases that can occur on your chest from sun damage and excess sun exposure.  The skin on your neck and chest is exposed to the same amount of sun as your face, and in order to prevent any damage, it needs just as much attention. The skin on your neck and chest is thin, so generously apply sunscreen in those two often-ignored areas. Sunburn in the chest/neck is not only painful, but unappealing when dressed in your favorite summer wardrobe.

2. Lips
Summer is not all about glossy lips. Before applying your favorite lip gloss, be sure to apply lipstick containing SPF 15 or above to protect the lips. Slip the lipstick in your bag and apply regularly throughout the day to avoid sun damage. 

1. Scalp
As the sun beams down over your head, it is an important to note the #1 overlooked area that requires protection from the sun—your scalp. Have you ever ended up leaving the beach and feeling like your head was on fire? Since you don’t want to pile on sunscreen over your hair and a hat may not be your favorite option, grab your favorite scarf and tie it around your head like a bandanna. Another option would be to use a sunscreen spray and spray it on your fingertips and use your fingers to apply this liquid to your part in your hair, the area of your scalp most susceptible to sunburn.

Hope these tips help you enjoy the sun and have fun!

Wedding Song Wednesday ~ Just You and Me by Rie Sinclair

This one comes to us from my pal over at Strawberry Freckles- Thanks Jill!!

Just You and Me by Rie Sinclair

Do I need to be invisible to just survive
Or am I foolishly wasting my time
I try so hard to quiet my expensive dreams
Before they take me out leave me wondering

Baby its just you & me
we got a thing they cant shake
Maybe its a little hard sometimes to take
But Ill tell you something, its a life worth living
Just so you know, I wouldnt give it up no.

Is it all a market war in this economy
Filling up headlines with our fantasies
System fails hard & we fall apart sometimes
But then you pull me back with your quiet smile
