Happy Passover!!!

I guess I should explain something about me.Ok so here's the short version.  I am mostly Irish, however my Grandfather was jewish and I was raised that way most of my life. But, I come from a well rounded family and we celebrated everything. Passover/ Easter, Chanukkah/ Christmas it wasd really awesome and helped me to learn to accept everyone's beliefs and to respect people for what they believe and to learn about it before we made judgements about them for not being " normal".

So, since today is Passover, I thought that I would take the time to wish everyone a Happy Passover.

It was one of my favorite of all of the Jewish Holidays. I loved spending time with my Poppy and helping my Granny prepair the Seder. I, being the youngest had the job of asking the 4 questions during the Seder and was always a little nervous because It was my " special job" .

But, I am a little sad today because since I lost my Poppy in March, 2007 we have not had a Seder. It has been too hard for my Granny and isn't the same since hes gone. So, Today I am remembering all the wonderful memories of Passover's past.

I hope that no matter what you celebrate that you have a wonderful time and you make special memories with your families. Trust me when I say that they will be a comfort to you in the future.

Thanks for stopping by and letting me be a little sentamental today.

Shalom & L’chaim My Friends!

The " OMG! Save For A Rainy Day April Challenge!!"

** Sings** April Showers Bring May Flowers** As we all know April is supposed to be the rainiest month of the year. So My BFF Diva Yoli at DivaInDeepThought had a wonderful idea. We are going to have a Save for a Rainy Day April Challenge. We could all use to save some money in this dreadful economy. And I for one know that once the weather gets warm I want all new pretty things to shake the Winter Blues.

The rules are simple, all we have to do is follow them right ?? Lol Oh come on We can do this after all its only 30 measly days, Right < cringe>

OK, so here are the rules :

1.No unnecessary purchases... PERIOD!

2.No clothes, shoes, or makeup for myself (however can accept gifts from others).

3.No clothes or shoes for kids or Hubby unless it’s a necessity (i.e. – the only pair of shoes don't fit or are lost and a new pair is needed.). Not having clean clothes to wear is not an acceptable excuse to purchase new – laundry must be done.

4.Only clothes that explicitly state “Dry Clean Only” on the care tag should be taken to the dry cleaner. All other clothing should be done in regular washing machines.

5.Sales are not an acceptable reasons to buy, if I miss a sale... oh well.< gasp!>

6.Cannot go to any retailer alone – needs a chaperone.

7.Nail fill( or manicure) (no designs), and one pedicure.

8.Limit eating out with the family as much as possible.
Sounds pretty simple right? Oh and on May1st you are absolutely not allowed to have a Store-Gasm and spend all the money you have saved lol!
I am also issuing a side challenge...
Pick a bank, bucket or cup for the month of April put all the change that you accumulate into this cup. At the end of the month count it up. You would be suprised how much change you get everytime you break a dollar!!
So, are you in? ;)

Spring Has Sprung!!!! Weekend Rewind

HOORAAAYYY!!! It's finally here! Spring! No more snow! YAY! YAY! YAY!! I live on the East Coast and well since you all know of all the snow that we got this winter you can see why I am so excited that its gone for a while!

I decided that since I am really new to blogging I would do a Weekend Rewind. This weekend was a little different for me. My hubby and his BFF decided that they were going to go on their Yearly Road Trip. So, that meant that I was going to be stuck here in Slower Lower Delaware while he was having a good time. Well, Its really not alll that bad but it started out that way.

I spent most of my night thursday helping him pack. ( he is a man and will forget his head if I don't say so lol) So, we didn't finally get to bed til after 2 am and had to get up at 4:30 so, no sleep for me.

After finally saying Hasta La Bye-Bye to the love of my life, it was time to get the kids up and ready for the bus and off to school. Having done that I looked at my clock and it was only 8:05am. I decided that I sshould attempt to take a nap cause I had'nt slept and well it would be good idea so I did'nt get cranky and kill someone. No such luck. So, after 2 hrs of everyone and their grandma calling me I decided that I was going to go shopping. Hubby is away, kids in school no one to bug me saying I'm taking too long good idea right? Well HELL YEAH GOOD IDEA!

SO, even tho it was pouring buckets I decided to make the trek in hubby's truck. ( side note, Its a POS he's got my new truck on the trip and I have the one that does'nt like reverse) SO, off I go. My first stop was Cato Fashions. They were having a sale. I never go in this store because I am a 30/32 and they only go up to a 26/28 and those are cut really small.

But, I was feeling good and decided maybe I would just find some cute accessories. After checking thru the sale racks I found an adorable light weight yellow sweater. It was a 26/28 but it was kinda long and stretchy and only $11.00 so I thought I would give it a try. AND IT FIT!!! YAAAYYY! Bad day just got better!

I didn't find much else. I would have been broke If I had been a 14/16 but alas, I am not so I headed to the accessories. JACK POT!!! It was accessories galore in there. And most on clearance. Since I was purchasing the yellow sweater I really wanted to find something that would POP off that color. Unable to decide on about 6 choices in my hand. I looked around for a second opinion and couldn't find anyone. I called my BFF Diva Yoli from Diva Deep in Thought I asked her what to go with yellow. She suggested Blue which was my color of choice. So having confrimed I set off to check out.

Bag in hand I headed over to Walmart for some more retail theropy. I decided on the way there that Hair Highlights were in order for the weekend! So I went to the beauty section and found what I was looking for. ( side note #2: My hair is extremely thick and costs me a fortune to go to the salon so, with the help of my Diva Momma we have perfected the DIY Hair Coloring Techniqes) with my plan in tact I checked out went to lunch and headed home.

here are some pics of the out come. I was heading out Thrifting with my Momma so thought that I would have a super cute day! So here goes !

Well Here We Go ....

Well Hello Gorgeous!

Since this is my Very First attempt at this I am not 100% sure what I am supposed to do so we will just wing it ! =o)

First let me say thanks for taking a peek! This site is definitely under construction, however let me give you a little peek at what I will be posting. So here's a little bit about the name.

I am a BBW ( for those of you who don't know what that is google it ) who firmly believes that just cause you are a BBW doesn't mean that you have to look like an old sack of potatoes. I believe that Big truly is Beautiful and while I am in NO way saying that I am a model, I do really try to make myself shine! I am also a HUGE ( no pun intended) fan of Miss Piggy and I believe that she IS the Original DIVA! As for the Prose, well I love to read, I love everything about expression thu the written word. So, that's the name.

As for what I am going to be doing here. I am going to be blogging my thoughts on FATshion, beauty, makeup, home life, kids, decorating and sometimes just plain ranting lol But what I can assure you is that it will never be a dull moment. =o) So, that said, Thanks again for taking a peek and I hope that you will come back soon!
