One question we get a LOT when we tell people we are living in a fifth wheel is: What about your stuff? Where did it all go?  My answer: It’s gone.  All of it.  Well… almost all of it.  See, we moved from a 3000 square foot house into a 32 foot fifth wheel. We had a LOT of stuff that wouldn’t fit. Couches and chairs and dressers and clothes and toys.. and toys.. and toys…..  But the good news for us was that MOST of our stuff was what I like to call Vintage Good Will. We hadn’t bought...

I had a huge demand for a good list of healthy snacks! You ask, I answer!  When it comes to snacking, my opinion is that it’s best to stick to fruits and veggies. But that gets old sometimes! So here is a list of 25 of my favorites!  **Note – I didn’t make up ANY of these snacks. The links will take you to blogs that have the recipes posted!**   Bell Pepper Pizza by Peas + Crayons No Bake Energy Bites by Cooking Classy Banana Peanut Butter Honey Roll Up by Flatout Flatbread Healthy Baked Broccoli...

This weekend, we bought a fifth wheel trailer.  And we’re going to live in it. Me, my husband, our three kids (4, 3, & 1) and our dog. We didn’t make this decision lightly. We have weighed the pros and cons of doing this, prayed about it, and took a leap of faith. We feel really strongly that this is the direction we need to go in life.  There are a few reasons why we decided to do this.  1. Finances. My husband will be going back to school, and we want to be able to keep costs down. Living in a fifth wheel,...

Holy inconsistent blogging, Batman!  Blogging has been something that I have really wanted to do, but it seems there isn’t ever enough hours in the day! I am going to try and update/post something fun twice a week here on out. Wish me luck!  I just wanted to let you all in on our next big adventure! No pictures yet, but I’m SO excited about it.  My husband and I have decided together that it’s time for him to go back to school! So, that means we’ll be moving a few states over for him to go back to...

My Facebook news feed is full of people talking about the new changes to the LDS church policy, especially in regards to children of same sex couples.  I have some thoughts about this that I feel prompted to share. I pray that my intentions come across as pure and that you will read this post with an open mind. I have many friends who are in same gender relationships and I love them very much. So often our minds are made up about issues before we really look into what they are about, and I’d just like to share my perspective...

The 21 Day Fix is taking the health world by storm. It’s an amazing way to lose weight, get healthy, learn portion control, and revamp your diet.  One complaint I’ve heard over and over again is that it’s just not set up well for those who choose the vegan/vegetarian life style. And it’s true. With the original plan, the only protein options that are compatible with a vegetarian life are:  – eggs – egg whites  – yogurt  – greek yogurt  – Shakeology  –...

I totally remember the first time someone talked to me about Shakeology. I didn’t even LOOK at the nutrition information or any of the facts about it. All I saw was the price and I didn’t look any further. There was NO WAY it was worth that much right? I mean… $4/day? I could make green smoothies on my own for half that price! So I did. I shared lots of recipes on my blog of smoothies that I was making. I thought I was being SO healthy with my green smoothie. I mean, there was TWO CUPS of spinach in it. It had to be...

I already know this post isn’t going to be a popular one. But it’s one I feel like I need to share. Because thankfully, we live in a country where it’s okay for me to have my own opinion.  I believe that: “THE FAMILY is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when...

I’m sort of A.D.D. when it comes to fitness programs. I’m so thankful for on demand because it allows me to jump from one program to another without having to actually buy each program. I do three or four different programs each week, because I figure that as long as I’m getting in some exercise each day, I’m good. But if someone asks me what my favorite program is, and what got me the most results, hands down I’ll tell you the 21 Day Fix, every time. The portion controlled eating system has changed my life....

The kids were all asleep at the same time a few weeks ago so I put Beachbody on demand on my phone and got my workout done outside. There is an old dirty mirror out there. I usually avoid looking at mirrors while I’m working out. In the past, they’ve frustrated me and made me self conscious. Old habits die hard because I was avoiding this mirror today. Half way through the workout, I caught a glimpse of myself, and I almost started crying. My reflection isn’t something that I’m ashamed of anymore, and I’m...
