Thankful Thursday

Have you noticed a change in your life after you have begun to live a more Thankful life?!  I started to be MUCH more conscious of living a Thankful life last year when I was going through my cancer diagnosis.  At a time when I would normally have been very down, I was able to, for the most part, stay positive & happy!  Don’t get me wrong, I had plenty of hard moments, being down & sad or angry…BUT being Thankful for everything else good in my life helped me to stay positive.  It has since become a …

It has been a few weeks since I wrote a Thankful Thursday post…  I’ve been thinking of all I have to be Thankful for, but haven’t written anything down here.  My mind has been partly on April 1st,  a day of infamy in my life…on this day in 2013 I found out I had cancer.  Can you believe it?!  April Fools?!  Too bad it wasn’t an April Fools joke…  I’ve been equally dreading & looking forward to this day.  Dreading the memory of how I felt that awful day, but also looking forward to being a whole year out from ...

Block Island Organics ~ Natural Organic Mineral Sunscreen {Review}

Want to know what this picture shows besides my pre-kid body?!  A younger version of myself that didn’t think sunscreen was important.  Also my handsome, tan Dad who did use sunscreen but still tanned!  Back to me…  My family, even before I had my own family, always enjoyed outdoor pursuits.  Year round sports…skiing in the winter, the beach in the summer with kayaking & waterskiing, hiking & camping in the spring & fall.  A lot of time spent outdoor in the sun.  My Mom did put sunblock on us when we were kids.  Then as I went through ...

I’m Thankful that my husband & I were able to have a 5 day kid-free getaway this past week in NH to celebrate our 6th wedding {3/8} & 8th {3/24} dating anniversary! I’m Thankful that my Mom & Mother-In-Law had a great time watching our girls while we were away!  They shared the duties, taking the girls on different days/nights. I’m Thankful that the girls were pretty well behaved, although Ava ...

Minted…Where The Art is! {Review}

We have hit a milestone in our house…no more crib in our house.  We decided to put both girls in Sophie’s room & make Ava’s room into a playroom/office/craft room.  Before Sophie was born, I painted the walls a dark grey & the accents were bright pink, green & white.  Girly, pretty, but not too babyish.  Fast forward 2 years & we need to add some more decorations or redecorate.  The color scheme will remain the same.

We bought a white loft bed for Ava to sleep in & we used an existing twin bed as the bottom bunk for Sophie. ...

Where are you in your fitness journey?!  I’m sort of in the middle, I’ve been going to No Risk Crossfit since September & have been trying to make healthier food choices.  The holidays were a stumbling block as far as food choices, but I am ready to reign it back in.  I’m starting the Let’s Be Real Nutrition & Health Challenge on January 20th, it will run for 6 weeks, finishing up on February 28th.  I am ready to go, well…almost!  This weekend is going to be all about food…Saturday is going ...

I’m Thankful for a quick recovery from a Kidney Stone!  An experience I never want to repeat!  I was in the ER in horrible pain on Sunday morning, started to feel better that afternoon & only had some soreness by Monday.  Phew… I’m Thankful that we were able to get to NH for our ski vacation, a few days late, but we got there! I’m Thankful that we are able to take Ava skiing & get her started on our favorite winter ...
