I had a few people ask me what I have been doing lately as far as eating to get all of my baby weight off, plus some…here are the guidelines I go by lately.. =&0=&
Want a milkshake in seconds??? WELL, if this doesn’t taste like one, I don’t know what does..and whats even better is its good for you!!!! I drink this every day after my morning workout and it is AMAZING! seriously..amazing! There is no chalky flavor at all, and the thickness of the soy milk makes it so creamy. I use half a banana in each shake and one scoop of the protein with about 8 ounces of soy milk. Use a hand blender for about 10 seconds and voila…DELISH! Question, has anyone tried this protein… What do you think if so?!?! I might try this kind next! Happy Workouts and Toning! xo
We have a drawer full of old picture frames in our house that we are not using anymore because, well…we don’t like the frames anymore. So I figured, why not try to make them a little more “like-able” I took 2 black frames shown here and put 2 coats of just an acrylic antique white paint on them.
‘I let the frames dry for a few hours (actually over night, but that isn’t necessary) and then used painters tape to give them a design. On the vertical striped one, I tore a few pieces of the tape to give it a rough edge. I LOVE ANNIE SLOAN CHALK PAINT! It is sooooo easy to work with! I painted one coat of the chalk paint all over the frames that didn’t have tape, and even on one frame I just painted the whole thing. I did not worry about making it perfect or the texture of the paint, I wanted it to look like I did not really try. Once the paint had dried for about 30 minutes, chalk paint dries super quick if it is only one coat, I took a small piece of sand paper and just ran it all over the frames, harder in some places than others to distress them. Here are the finished frames!! I can not wait to hang them in Braydon’s nursery!!!!!..oh and fix the one on the left where the picture is sliding down! 😉 haha Happy Crafting! xo
So I have seen the sparkly keys 10000 times on pinterest, and everytime I would say “Awe, I want my keys to look like that!!” So I did it, and this is how…. Label your keys so you don’t forget what goes to what. Although, I mixed mine up so I will have to test them all to figure out what they belong to..go figure! I painted a base coat on the keys just to give them extra stick for the modge podge!!! I then painted a small coat of Mod Podge over the key where I wanted the glitter to stick I dipped both sides of key where I had put the Mod Podge into the glitter. I then did a second coat of Mod Podge and re dipped the into the glitter after the first coat had dried for about an hour. After the second coat dried for about 2 or 3 hours I painted a clear coat of top nail polish to seal in the glitter and add shine. Almost like a shellac over it. I learned the hard way, do NOT use your good top coat nail polish..mine is now full of glitter and I have to go buy a new one! Here are the finished keys!
For all of you who have the plug in scented warmers, I have the best money saving tip for you! Forget ordering your expensive Scentsy bars or running to the store to find scented wax or oils, you can use something you may already have in your laundry room, and if you don’t, you should. Your clothes deserve the respect to smell this good!!! The blue one is my favorite scent! It smells like amazing fresh laundry, and if you put just a thin layer of the wax beads in your warmer, your whole house will smell like fresh, clean laundry. Who wouldn’t want that? Happy Smelling!!!! xo
I can thank these two lovely ladies for helping me get my pre-baby body back in just 5 short months!

Here is a video and a few pictures of how I do my every day, “I’m a mom and I have to run errands” look. It’s VERY simple, minimal and quick! Takes me about 6 minutes to do, I timed it today. And that is still while entertaining Braydon! Please excuse the video quality.I will work on that!!!!
