An easy way to jump onto a Fitness Routine with FitStudio.com {#Achieve15}

Running Shoes

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Sears. I will receive a promotional item to thank me for participating.”   Our third child arrived a little eleven months ago and since then it can be safe to say I have no fitness routine whatsoever unless you can count shuttling my older two to school or after school activities and running after a certain baby who has found her feet! A recent visit to … [Read more...]

How to clean a Scentsy wax spill easily (3)

Early this morning before the kids woke up, Hubs and I decided we'd color our grays. After doing Hubs' hair I decided to work on mine in the bathroom leisurely. Everything was going okay till I tried to move a strand of hair away from my nose and in the process banged my elbow on the Scentsy warmer plugged into the wall socket and yes, this happened... Needless to say I had a mini 0h-my-goodness-this-bathroom-is-ruined moment but then I … [Read more...]

We're into week 3 of the New Year 2015 and I wonder how many of us are still holding good to those resolutions made. As the month slowly rolls by, you may find more commitments being added to your plate. If you're like me, it's not always easy to say no. But for the sake of your sanity, remember that it is okay to decline get  certain commitments. I read this quote somewhere... "Our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at … [Read more...]

2 days ago while thinking about what to bake for the kids' lunchboxes, 2 ripe bananas stared back at me from the fruit bowl.

The result? Banana Carrot Bread Muffins These are a marriage between Banana Bread and Banana Muffins with a generous … [Read more...]

My word for the New Year, 2015.

Prioritize

On January 1st I sat down and thought about what my word for the new year would be. Just a few hours prior to ringing in 2015, my husband shared with our home group the importance of seeking God's peace in all things. One thing he said really drove home. He said that there isn't any point in signing up for x,y,z commitments if you will be stressed and rushed while undertaking each one. Rather it would be better to do one or none at all and be at … [Read more...]

MasterChef Junior Season 3 has begun! {+ A #MasterChefJr Giveaway}

MasterChef Junior (1)

My 4 year old loves to help in the kitchen. As soon as he hears the whirr of my stand mixer, I can bet he'll be by my side in just a matter of a few seconds asking if he can help with whatever I'm making. If I'm chopping veggies, he'll show up with a butter knife and ask if we can share a chopping board and chop alongside me. I really hope his love for all things culinary carries on as he grows older. And one way I can fuel the love is by … [Read more...]

Healthy Chicken Rice and Bean Soup  (5)

Yesterday was the first day of school for my 8 year old. She was excited to go back after 2 odd weeks of being off. During the holidays, both her younge er siblings fell ill with the usual coughs and colds. She escaped the bug going round... at least till this morning. Poor child woke up with a mild fever, a cough and a runny nose. Hubs and I decided she had to stay at home to recuperate and contain the germs from spreading at school. So … [Read more...]
