Healthy Lunch in Less Than 3 Minutes

Healthy Lunch in Less Than 3 Minutes

Kid's are back in school, so nowadays, I spend six or so hours getting things done without kids. This includes running errands, paying bills, going grocery shopping, etc. While I would love to say that I just sit around and relax while the girls are in school, it is the complete opposite. I am busier now than when my children were out for summer break. From the time I drop them off at the time I pick them up, it is all go go go. Around twelve or so, I start getting so agitated and can't believe ... continue reading...

In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction.

My husband and I were just talking about this the other day. How quick they are making all these animals grow, and the conditions these poor animals are probably living in to keep up with the consumers buying meat. We have taken to pledge to buy welfare-certified meat and hopefully our small part can save at least one animal living in horrific conditions. Hopefully, one day we can have our own farm and raise our own cattle and chickens, but until then, we will support the cause and support the ... continue reading...

Meal Planning Monday #2

Meal Planning Monday

Meal Planning Monday Have you ever wished that you had a meal plan for the week for dinners to feed your family? I know I do.

So I started preparing my own weekly meal plan. I search on Pinterest and Google for things that I could easily make, and that the whole family would love, and does not cost an entire paycheck. Recently, I ... continue reading...

My First Impression with LuLaRoe

LuLaRoe Leggings First Impression

My First Impression on LuLaRoe Leggings I'm going to admit, when the LuLaRoe craze first started, I thought these people were crazy spending $25+ on some leggings. I didn't see what the big deal was over these and was a little aggravated when people would randomly add me to these LuLaRoe groups. I did not even know that they offered items other than the leggings. In case you haven't heard of LuLaRoe, they sell simply comfortable clothing that is lightweight enough for hot summer days, but ... continue reading...

Each bag is $10.00 with free shipping. About a year ago, I had a subscription to Ipsy.

I like getting hair products, but when I originally signed up and took the ... continue reading...
