I am loving these “5 Things” posts (promise all my blog posts won’t be like this), but I feel lately that I have so much to share with you!

It’s been a super fun week of celebrating, getting the house back in order after RJ’s first birthday party (post coming soon), a five day camping trip and family in town. Loved celebrating, but feels good to be back to routine (a little).

1. The Blog, what’s next?

As you can see there has been some fun new changes to the blog, new header, background, but this is only the beginning. It’s time to mix things up a bit, so you will be seeing a LOT more changes in the future.

2. WHOLE 30 Update:

I am still doing it, but I had a little break on Monday! I had a Mai Tai and some treats at Disneyland. The Whole 30 says if you get off then you have to start all over again, well I am not following that. Hey I did do the ‘Whole 15,’ that should count for something right?

Gonna stay strong until the 26th. I can not wait to share my full review of the entire plan.


3 At-Home Workout!

I miss sharing workouts with you all. Don’t worry they are coming back and I am getting super excited about the NHS Holiday Shred 2014 coming up.

Propel’s challenge for me this month was to share an at-home workout with all of you. I know we all get super busy and sometimes can’t make it to the gym, but that’s when we use our bodies as workout equipment and get in 30 minutes of pure sweat.

Here is a workout I have created for you all to get your heart rate up and one heck of a good burn!


#4. Crock Pot Meal Exchange:

We had another round of crock pot meal exchanges! This time there was a total 11 of us.

A lot of you have asked how this works and it’s super simple. Each person makes 11 (or however many people you have) of the same meal and puts it in a freezer bag. This can be anything from a soup, chicken tacos, meatballs and spaghetti (include the spaghetti separate). You just want to make it super simple for everyone to take out of the freezer stick in the crock pot.

I made cilantro lime chicken for everyone and then when we all got to my friends house, we walked around and grabbed one of each meal. So now we had 11 different meals to try out and have on hand to make dinner EASY! We do healthier crock pot meals and it works out perfect! Make sure to include the recipeIMG_9470

#5. 3D Mascara:

I finally gave it a try! An instagram follower (AmyClink) sent me some Amy Clinkenbeard’s Younique Virtual Party (Mascara) to try out and now my mind is BLOWN away! 

It’s an incredible mascara that is all natural, made from green tea leaves with tons of beneficial ingredients in it!

It contains a gel that applies like mascara. You apply the green tea fibers to extend you lashes then the gel again to seal in the fibers. It lasts all day and washes off with your regular face soap! I am hooked!!!
