Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals #9

You know those weeks when you try to cram too much in? Yeah, this is one of those. I was tired before the week really even got started just thinking about the craziness. Although I don’t think things will slow down anytime soon, it’s all good. T-ball starts next week which I’ve very much been looking forward to. Audrie was super excited to get her cleats and glove and has been wanting to practice which is a pleasant surprise for this mamma.

Still not back at the gym but I do seem to be making progress with physical therapy. Although when (more…)

Stitch Fix Review – April 2016

My Fix came this weekend!! It’s a little ridiculous how excited I get when my Fix comes. Think kid in candy store and you’ve got the picture. While this Fix wasn’t perfect and I’m not keeping everything, it did take me out of my comfort zone which is one of the main reasons I love Stitch Fix.

If you’re not familiar with how Stitch Fix works, check out my Stitch Fix Basics post for the low down.

With the weather getting warmer, I’m ready to break out of my sweaters and boots. I’ll be ready for those again come October (more…)

Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals

Even without going to the gym this week, I stayed mostly on track with my eating and for this reason, I still feel good. I ate a lot on Easter and felt awful at the end of the day but everything was so delicious and it was totally worth it. Even thought I’m at the end of my 3 week challenge, I’m going to try keep limiting my white carbs. It’s really not difficult to do.

Not gonna lie, I’m really bummed to not be able to finish the 21-day competition at the gym. I gotta get this back thing figured out before I can work out again. The flare-ups (more…)

5 Kid Friendly April Fools Day Pranks

When I set out to think of some April Fools Day ideas for the kids, all the pranks I thought of were kinda mean. So I searched for some ideas and, turns out, it’s not just me that thinks of slightly mean things to do to their kids on April Fools Day. Makes me feel ever so slightly better about my mom-abilities. 🙂

These ideas would’ve been great for St. Patrick’s Day, also. Audrie kept talking about how a leprechaun (more…)

Spring Cleaning Ideas From Someone Who Hates Spring Cleaning

I know I’m not alone when I say I’m beyond excited the weather is starting to warm up. In Missouri, mother nature plays dirty tricks on us and gives us 75 degrees one day and then snow the next but I’m not going to let her get me down. We’ve had a taste of spring and I know it’ll be here to stay very soon…or at least I hope it will because not sure sure how much longer I’ll be optimistic.

Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals

I’m still on track with my eating (for the most part) but a back issue this week has taken me out of the gym for awhile (duration TBD). It’s frustrating and annoying. Historically, I don’t eat well when I’m not working out but I’m trying hard to keep the diet pretty clean for at least another week. I’ll be cheating big time on Easter, I’m sure but, as I’ve said before, I’m not perfect (hence, the name of the blog).

10 Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

Looking for a gift for your favorite teacher? Audrie’s preschool teachers were great but I’ve been blown away with how wonderful her Kindergarten teacher is. I’m not in the classroom very often but when I am the chaos that takes place is almost too much for me to handle. How she does it every day amazes me and Audrie adores her.

Here’s some cute, non-labor intensive ideas I found to show a teacher how much you appreciate them. Some of these (more…)

Surprise Inside Cupcakes

We were a few days late celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this year. Really, we don’t normally celebrate so the fact we acknowledged the day is impressive. I saw these Lucky Charms Cupcakes from The Gold Lining Girl and thought they’d be perfect for Audrie to help make. She loves Lucky Charms (who doesn’t) and, of course, her favorite part are the marshmallows so combining cupcakes with marshmallows, not much gets better for a 5 year old.

We did these green for St. Patrick’s Day but you could do them for any occasion. The Surprise Inside Cupcakes I highlighted in 10 Easy Easter Cakes are just another example of something fun to do. Possibilities are endless.

I didn’t have the time (or energy) to make these cupcakes from scratch or pipe the icing on so I made the cupcakes from a box and (more…)

Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals

I’m 1 week into my 21 days of eating healthier/exercising more and, I gotta say, I feel really good. I haven’t been perfect but I’m pretty proud of myself for resisting numerous temptations this week. It wasn’t easy and I can’t promise it will continue for the next 14 days but that’s ok, not gonna be crazy about it. We made all of the meals from last week’s Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals this week and they all get a thumbs up from me. The hubby wasn’t a fan of the cauliflower and bacon dish but he doesn’t really like cauliflower so there’s a 50/50 chance he won’t like my cauliflower ‘rice’ dishes. Depends on how well I can mask the cauliflower taste.

Stitch Fix Basics

I’m style-challenged (nice way of saying I have no style) so when I heard there I could have a stylist send me clothes every month and I could choose what to keep and send back what I didn’t want, there was no doubt I was signing up. I like going shopping as much as the next girl but I need to be in the right mood to look and need to be with my shopping buddy (you know who you are) but, unfortunately, those trips are few and far between. Plus, see above, I’m style-challenged so even when I do go, I leave with comfy shirts and baggy jeans.

Maybe someday I’ll have a personal stylist at my beck and call (not likely but, hey, a girl can dream) but for now I’ll settle for the mail version. Seriously, what’s better than having a stylist pick out clothes for you and all you have to do is open the mailbox to get them? I started Stitch Fix when (more…)
