The count down and can not come quick enough....I mean WE are just that excited! This is our first visit to Disney in October, we are looking forward to attending the over priced Halloween Party and enjoying ever possible thing we can cram into 6 days...yes only six days thanks to this thing called SCHOOL! lol But in the spirit of disney we have made a few things since we are so excited! Here is some of our crafty moments!
Our Disney count down chain
T shirt CRAZY!!! I may have went a little OVERBOARD....NO , I think not!!!
Hey !!!! This morning is our late morning my hubby doesn't have PT so we sleep a little later, got up at 0615 this AM it was nice to get that extra sleep in but then again I realize JUST how MUCH I can get done getting up earlier! This morning I had a little bit of a headache so I tried one of those juices to help headaches....I didnt have cucumbers so it was not as much juice I am sure as it would have been if I had them, but oh well!!! So here is my tweerked version
1 cupe of pineapple
1-2 handfuls of kale
1/2 a lemon
2 stalks of celery
ITs GREEN yall ! It was actually really good too and for whatever reason my headache is gone!!!
Seriously, a wacky Wednesday! Woke up at 0445 and thought it was going to be a great day ;) Fixed our morning juice (which was AMAZING) Highly highly recommend this juice ! Today was a morning energizer/ fat burner
2 grapefruits ( I used pink)
1 inch of ginger
Sorry I forgot to take a pic and I had already drank most of it. This did not make my average amount it was a little less, but I didn't want to add to much more to it! Definitely a good acidic boost!
So as I was saying before I got side tracked with my juice! I "thought" it was going to be a good morning, had my drink fixed my coffee and started my yoga....then.... Goose heard something, jumped over my tray with my coffee and spilled it all over my PLANNER!!! AKA my LIFE!!!! I hurried grabbed it yelled at him and WOKE Harry up!!! lol So there went yoga, there went my me time ! BUT its all good, because I got some one on one time with Harry, apologized to Goose and went about my morning, Life is too short to let ONE instance change your whole day :)
Harry took an early nap today. I guess it was that 5:30 wake up call
I guess Goose felt bad! lol I LOVE these babies !!!
and I must post my Beautiful oh so posh little lady this morning!!! She picked out her outfit, yeah the boot socks don't match perfectly but I let her go on and wear them :) I couldn't tell that pretty girl NO!!!
Gosh I LOVE my kiddos! What on earth did I ever do before my hubby and my kids!!! :)
Hey World! It's Tuesday! What's on your plate today! We have gymnastics tonight so that means quick and easy dinner. What is easier then quick and easy...crockpot!!! Tuesday's for the last year have been crockpot night at our house...but then again last night was crockpot meals too! I am all about something I can get done early and still be amazing! Tonight is Chicken Noddle Soup!
It's the start of a new week! Yay! Time to get to juicing. This morning was much easier to get up out of bed. Its the juice man! (No really though, I believe it is a mixture of healthy eating, juicing and moderate workouts.) Geez I even beat the hubs out. I did a detox juice because we had a mini frosty last night after dinner! yeah yeah yeah..... you got to reward yourself peeps! Otherwise you will break and go bonkers! lol Been there done that and I DON'T want to blog about that. Today we had ...
1 1/2 medium cucumbers
2 pieces of celery
1 whole lemon
1 inch piece of ginger
This morning MC was super excited to tear off a Disney chain!
I also got a little crafty today :) I looked everywhere for a jessie costume that was cute and didn't break the bank. I couldn't find one, so I made one! For only 12.00 I got fabric, ric rac, buttons and fusable wear to attach them with no sewing for top, and the skirt I did have to sew a little. I also ordered her a royal blue tutu and I am looking forward to how that all pulls together. Here it is though without the tutu
Today's juice was in my own woods "kiwi goodness" I named it that ! :) I must say that this is by far my most favorite, it was easy on the taste buds for sure! I am a pretty picky drinker too. The only issue with this one is that you MUST stir it constantly. I'm no chemist but something in the ingredients causes it to separate making the top part a little thick, but like I said if you stir constantly it is PERFECT!!!
1 inch of ginger
Here in the image you can start to see it separating at the bottom! Still YUMMY!!!!
Hope you have a FaNtAsTiC Saturday!!! BOILER UP & WAR EAGLE !!!
It's Friday Yall! This week has been a busy one with my consignment sale with Little Bird Lane and working it, plus our regular crazy busy life. This morning we had another juice with no name! Why do they do this to me? Don't they know I need a name! This one has been MY FAVORITE !!! It is to be named "Orange you glad its my favorite" (this yields 2 servings)
1 inch of ginger
It even looks yummy !!
I even was able to get in yoga and dinner in the crockpot too :)
This is the look my dog gives me during yoga! lol I feel like he is saying you are doing that all wrong!
I start todays post with lots on my mind as I am sure many Americans feel. I have a heavy heart as I think about all that has changed since this day 13 years ago. I remember where I was in life at that moment. I sure did not know the impact that this one day would have on my life. Who would have thought I would marry into the Marine Corps. I was never one to be overly patriotic or push my beliefs on anyone, or show my political side. Over those 13 years I first hand have witness death, sadness, loneliness and heartache....all because of this one event. I pray every night for this world we live in to be a safe place for my family. I see many people choosing not to take their kids to school today, I took my daughter to school, she was sporting her American Flag bracelet, I explained to her the significance of today. I told her about her daddy and what he does to help keep us safe and keep events like that from ever happening again. I believe that I can not shield her from the unexpected, I can not keep her in bubble, we don't know what is to come, that is why we have FAITH! I have faith in knowing that whatever comes of today I treated it as a normal day, not scared of what is to come. With that being said may we never forget 9/11
Todays Juice Tales! lol Today we slept in a little 0600 ! YAY I still managed to everything but my Yoga, so that will happen later in the day :)
Todays had no title that I can find, so I decided on making my own! don't laugh
Carrot Bliss! (2 servings)
1 sweet potato
I must admit I call this bliss simply because it actually tasted VERY good!!! It was sweet enough that I didn't feel deprived! I also was was so excited about it I forgot to snap a picture, until it was almost gone ! So here it is :)
I thought I would all share a recipe I made last night for dinner :)
So we made it to day 3! Yay! Ok, so for the last three days I have woke up with a smile on my face at 4:30/4:45 fixed the hubs and I a drink, did some yoga and finished cleaning up the house and got ready all before 7:30 when its time to wake the kids! What I have learned from this is rather interesting and somewhat motivating! For the first time in...oh I don't know FOREVER....I have ME TIME! Yes it may be at the expense of my sleep but let me just say it is worth it! I am so much happy and maybe its the juice that gives me extra benefits and maybe its all in my head, who knows but none the less I feel good and am proud of what I have accomplished! Now the hard part... keeping it up! So my challenge to myself is to hold myself accountable, yes things are going to come up, yes we are going to stay out late and no I am not saying I ALWAYS will do my yoga or wake up that early, but what I am holding myself to is NOT to fall into the rut of not even trying! Its ok to cheat every now and again, its ok to sleep til 9AM. I am challenging myself to not let that ONE day ruin the next 15! To take a stand and say this is not a diet/workout routine, but to say this is my LIFE and I want to live to be 150 and see my grandchildren and my great grandchildren. I want to run and play with my kids! I want to be a more healthy, happy person! and for me getting up and enjoying some quiet time by myself/or with the hubs if his time permits is ALL worth it!!! So here's to keeping it up :)
todays juice was the lovely "Morning Glory "
So whats the story with this morning glory! Well one might say not too glamorous...lol just kidding its not too bad it was my first time juicing a beet so that may have something to do with it! lol
Morning Glory Recipe (this recipe only yields one serving)
So today along with my yoga I found this Plank Challenge on Pinterest! I will be trying it, as I hope you might join along with me too! I mean how hard can it be ....
Oh just getting my 20 second plank on! :)
Hope you have a fantastic day :) for us here its raining so I will leave you with this sweet picture of my babies
