// Small Town Girl // Fun Shirts!!//

I have recently purchased a new Silhoutte Cameo 3 and LOVE it!! If you’ve never heard of one it’s the best machine out there to create DIY projects!!  I’ve started designing and creating a few different shirts the last month and I am hoping to expand this and create other fun projects and will share as they come.

If you are wanting anything designed, I can create just about anything you send me!!  Very reasonable pricing and everything is custom to YOU!  Check out a few of my initial projects–

//Healthy Kids Snack//

So Kyler went to a very fun and educational day camp at the ISU Extension in Sioux City  (highly recommend having your child check it out) this week and learned all about healthy choices.  Finding healthy snack options for the kids isn’t always an easy task but what he learned at the camp inspired him to come home and tell us all about it.  He brought home a few different recipes including a yogurt parfait and an “All Star Bites’ recipe that he wouldn’t stop talking about! After dinner he asked if we could please make them because he wanted to eat healthy snacks during the day.

IMG_0404.PNGLooking at the recipe, I realized we had all the ingredients (very simple recipe)!! So we gathered the below ingredients and within 10 minutes, had our bites made and in the freezer.

1 C Rolled Oats (we used instant)
1/2 C Mini chocolate chips
1/2 C Peanut Butter
1/3 C Honey
1 tsp. Vanilla
--Add all ingredients in a bowl, stir until completely mixed.  Roll into balls.  Freeze for an hour. 
--Place 2 to a baggie
--Store in fridge

A fun activity to do with the kiddos and a quick and healthy snack for them… and YOU!!

//Groupon//BEST Deals!//

grouponIf you haven’t heard of Groupon or have and just haven’t tried it out… you are MISSING OUT on amazing deals!! Groupon has become my favorite site to look for deals on literally EVERYTHING!  I just purchased a variety box of keurig cups last week and was sent so many good flavors of coffee!! I’ve bought everything from iPhone chargers to coffee to Shutterfly deals!! I always buy photo books and calendars off Groupon from shutterflyShutterfly and literally get them for $5!!!!! That’s like a $30 savings!! You do always have to pay the $7 shipping still, but it’s still the best deal out there!!

One of the best things I purchase on a regular basis is their canvas print deals AND their holiday cards… Printerpix is one of the best I found for holiday cards and I really like the Simple Canvas Prints site as well.

There are hundreds of deals on travel getaways too that I want to try out.

I always check out the ‘Deals of the Day’ to see what is on SUPER sale— today my keurig cups are so I’m putting another order in for them!

Check out the site and use the ‘refer a friend code‘ for extra savings!

Some other favorites I’ve purchased…

Have fun looking around the site and hopefully you find as good of deals as I have!!!


//Food Prep Sunday//

IMG_6352Sundays are my favorite day for many reasons– church, no work, staying home with the kiddos and FOOD PREP for the week ahead!  I’ve learned in my years of Beachbody that prepping is KEY!! I always thought it would take me forever to do but it honestly takes an hour or less to put everything together.

I usually order my groceries to pick up or be delivered on Friday after school so I always try to be prepared as to what I need by Thursday.  My weeks are pretty consistent as far as what I eat, especially during the school week.  Once I get my groceries, I store them until Sunday and get them out, cut them up and portion them out!! So nice to have to just grab and go!

Some of my go to breakfasts: oatmeal, egg white muffins, hard boiled eggs, fruit, healthy french toast, Greek yogurt with Fiber One cereal, and homemade Quest bars.

Some favorite snacks would be: Shakeology bars, fruit, almonds, bananas, crockpot apples, hummus and rice cakes.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
Chocolate is by far my favorite!

As far as lunch it almost always consists of a chocolate shake and some kind of fruit. I make my shake with 1/2 water, 1/2 cashew milk, ice, scoop of Shakeology and 1/4 of a banana.  

Dinners can sometimes be tough because I’m also trying to cook for a 7 year old, 4 year old and 1 1/2 year old.  I try to make thing  all will eat but it doesn’t always happen!  Some of our go to’s are Mexican Crockpot Chicken (great for leftovers– tacos and salads), turkey meatballs, turkey meatloaf, shrimp and salmon.  Vegetables consist of sweet potatoes, zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash, mixed medley of cauliflower and broccoli and cauliflower rice.  Some pictures below of some of our favorites… I will post more recipes this week too! I don’t have tons of time like most moms so my recipes are quick and easy!!
