What I Got for Christmas | Christmas Haul

I can hardly believe January is almost over. It feels like Christmas was just a few days ago.

They say when you get older, time seems to go faster and that's no lie. Before we head into February, my birthday month, I want to share what I got for Christmas.

We are still working through our debt freedom plan so we don't spend a whole lot of money on holidays. We set a small gift budget for each person on our list, we save throughout the year and don't go above it unless of course it's a gift for my grandson. My husband went above our gift limit, but I'll give him a pass.

8 Ways to Involve Your Kids on Valentine's Day









Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays. It's two days after my birthday, making it an overall fantastic week for my husband to romance me, but it's also another chance for us to demonstrate love to our kids.

Making our children a part of Valentine's Day has been a tradition of ours since day one. It started with my husband buying gifts for our oldest daughter when she was the only child and later included traditions with our three younger children. 

Myself and several moms are sharing what we do to involve our children on Valentines day. 


1. When we had just one child, my husband would buy her a box of chocolates and a teddy bear on Valentine's Day.

DIY Target Accent Table Hack


It's been a few weeks since I've shared a project with you guys, mostly because we were finishing up our master bedroom floor install. I'll share more about the before, during and after install once I get time to upload and edit the photos.

In the meantime, let me show you what I did to that damaged table I bought from Target. 



Y'all already know how I like to scour the clearance sections, especially the one at Target, and find nice things for my home, so when I saw this cute table I instantly knew it would be a great fit for my reading nook, but it wasn't the right color, plus it was damaged.

Ever since my kids began public school the start of their school day has been my chance to get a few moments of quiet time before beginning my day. 




In my quiet time I indulge in my favorite delectable foods or beverages. What I decide depends on how I'm feeling and what's in my kitchen. This week I picked up Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt to make some fruit to make fruit snacks to eat during my morning "me moments".




Using Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt in  Raspberry Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip or Vanilla Bean flavor, I freeze up several kinds of yogurt bites for the week. 

Making these bites is really simple.

In the last year I've made some tremendous accomplishments related to my health and appearance. The one thing I thought was impossible without surgery was having defined abdominal muscles after having children. 
Sometime earlier this year I stumbled across a community of women who were in amazing shape after having multiple children and I was so inspired. They all had three things in common which I'll share with you in a second.




As a result of following these communities, I stopped eating meat for a while and began really focusing on the kinds of exercises that would sculpt the abdominal muscles.

My results were crazy and after a few months I had an almost six pack and my waist is down to 29 inches. 
In the new year, I want to build on what I began this year and that's going to mean setting some new fitness goals.
