I've put together the perfect new year perfume roller for you!! You're going to want to make this ASAP and keep it in your purse! It's been my go-to perfume roller for two years and I absolutely love it! 

At Beaches and Cream at Disney's Beach Club Resort you can get dessert called the Kitchen Sink. It's 4 different types of ice-cream as the base and then topped with everything you can imagine!  I looked it up and it has 28 ingredients in it!!! 28!!!! Have you ever had an ice cream dish with that many ingredients in it? 

Well, this protein ball recipe is along the same line.


Can we be friends!!

Hey! My name is Marie! I'm a UGA grad (go Dawgs!), former reporter, actor and Radio Host! Even though it's not my day job anymore, one thing I can never give up, is my desire to hear and tell peoples stories. That's why I spend my days ( who am I kidding... mostly nights, because I'm a night owl!) working hard to build an online community of women supporting other women! 

My husband Scott and I live in Southwest Georgia and while it has the reputation of being "boring", we love our small town and have big dreams of helping revitalize its forgotten areas! We enjoy all things outdoors- hiking, zip-lining, kayaking, you name it (we also want to be on the Amazing Race). We have a little chihuahua named Little Bit who loves sleeping by the space heater. Come hang out with me!!!
