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

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...

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

First Look: Beauty and the Beast Teaser Poster

Beauty and the Beast First Look Teaser Trailer

I am so excited to see this movie. Growing up, Beauty and the Beast was one of my favorite movies (if not my most favorite). I remember dressing up as Belle every Halloween.

It is now a live-action re-telling, with real people!! I can't wait to see how the Beast looks, and my daughter can't wait to see Chip. I'm sure you have already ... continue reading...

For the Lumberjacks that need to eat

Lumber Michael and Lumber Ben

Even though my husband isn't a lumberjack, he does work hard every single day. You might can compare the training and the work that he does with that a lumberjack does. He is a leadman at a rock mining quarry. I send him lunches that are packed with protein and calories to make sure that he has everything he needs to be successful every day.  Like my husband, Lumberjacks need all the protein and nutrients that they can get. If you are unaware of what a lumberjack does, these are the guys that ... continue reading...

I love to make dishes that are simple but have a huge punch of taste. I went to my local grocery store and picked up a small ... continue reading...
