March- Guy Behind the Blog



1 // do you have a good luck charm or ritual? (like a lucky coin, or you always used to listen to a certain pump-up song when you played sports in high school or college?) 

Nope. Honestly he looked at me like I was crazy when I asked him. But maybe because he has no idea what this is for ha. 


2 // what is your favorite dish that your wife/fiance/girlfriend makes for you?  do you have any fun memories of a time when she tried to cook and it totally flopped or does she get it right every time?


Cauliflower Pizza. This one right here, oh man is it a ton of work but totally worth it. I really like it too!


3 // what did you want to be when you were growing up?

It's funny most of these questions I had to ask him but this one I knew right away. He has always wanted to be an Entrepreneur. 

4 // which of the five senses is your strongest? 


We have no idea. Every sense is answered with an "eh". We're not doing too well are we? 


5 // would you ever run for president?

No. 

Linking up over here today.

Life Now.

It's felt like the world has been spinning so fast lately. Throwing things at us left and right. It's been wonderful. Busy but wonderful. Hopefully in time you can be all caught up on our journey. I don't know where to begin, does anyone remember my last me post? The one where I updated you and rekindled that friendship we had started? Me either? I looked back a few months and still nothing. 

We ended 2014 with goals in mind. Big goals, goals that take time, effort and a whole lot of team work. 

We've been slowly remodeling our house. Problem after problem has taken us from one room to the next. I am proud to say that we have finally completed the upstairs portion of our house. Now the fun stuff comes, decorating. 

My 3 year old is now 4. She is a Sunbeam in church and absolutely perfect in every way. She's helpful, kind, strong willed, and brave as heck. She's really making me grow as a person, strange right? The courage she has is the courage I've wanted and needed and I'm slowly finding my own. She is coming to the end of Joy School and has been enrolled in a Pre-K class for next year. She's also started decorating her own room. By herself. 



Our baby is growing so fast. She is coming up on 21 months old, a fan of attempting to potty train herself. We've just about gotten her problems sorted out and are now enjoying large chunks of sleep at night. It's been wonderful. She's a determined little girl and surely brings a whole new dimension to this family. 

Life is wonderful. It always has been- but seems to have found a groove right now and the groove is good. It's where we need to be right now. How has 2015 been treating you?

{Review} Pura D'or Organic Argan Oil Shampoo

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I took a jump and colored my hair a lighter color this last November! To achieve a new lighter color I let my sister bleach my hair! EEK! I really love my new lighter hair, a nice dark Red Blonde. Besides the damage done by bleaching my only problem has been my hair color fading super fast! I tried only washing my hair every other day even though I don't care to do that and still found I was coloring it every almost 2 weeks.


Insert the chance to review the Pura D'or Organic Argan Oil Shampoo and bam! My hair was finally enjoying life again. Some highlights on this shampoo:


Sulfate, Paraben, and Gluten Free with built-in vitamins and DHT blockers
Helps prevent hair loss and split ends
Thickens hair and adds volume
Hydrates and shines hair for a healthy scalp
Organic


Sounds awesome right? It totally is! No longer is my hair fading incredibly fast thanks to cheap shampoos, it just fades at what I would consider a decent timeline considering my hair is red. Also, the damage done from bleaching the heck out of my dark hair and then constantly coloring my hair was reversed! Seriously. It has been wonderful. My husband agreed to start using it because he is worried about hair loss (someone must be turning 30 this year!) and swears he has noticed a slight change.  

Bonus, I barely use any shampoo and have noticed I don't need nearly as much conditioner as I thought! Love it! Do you color your hair often? Do you find that your hair color is fading fast- ever stop and think that it was your shampoo that was causing that problem? I know I didn't. What is your favorite shampoo for color treated/damaged hair? I know what mine is! I did receive this product in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own! I really do love this shampoo!

{Review} Car Seat Back Protector


I cannot keep little feet off the back of my car seat, especially if these little feet are dirty. It wasn't until we had two kids that I noticed this new problem. At least one of them has to be behind a seat and you know those seats attract feet like magnets. I used to have to tell them several times to keep their feet off, "put your shoes down", stop kicking my chair, but now I have this awesome little car seat back protector in my car. 




If only I could get that great of a picture of it in my car. I'll have to keep trying. Also I need to vacuum my car out, something happened with some peanut butter crackers. They may have exploded, or at least look like they did. 

Anyway, so one day I'm sitting in the parking lot and my husband is running into the store and I just so happened to leave the mail in the car on the day I got this! I stuck it on (easily!!!) and he didn't even notice! I love the fact that it went on so perfectly and so secretively. The packaging it came it was great! It also looks fine in the car, isn't even noticeable. Great product, would recommend it to anyone that has little feet that like to kick the back of their cars. Even though I got this product in exchange for a review, all opinions are my own. If you have little feet constantly touching the back of your car seat and want something to help protect it I'd definitely recommend this!

{Review} Clean Food Diet Ebook


January 21st and I'm pretty sure my eating hasn't improved a whole ton in the last 21 days. I'm pretty sure I haven't lost any weight, but you know what, I'm not super worried about it. If there is one thing I've learned about myself it's that making little changes over time is what works. It also works best for my kids. I've recently had the opportunity to review a Clean Food Diet Ebook and have incorporated some of the recipes into our meal routine. 


We've enjoyed the Meatless Chili, as well as the Zuchini Oven Fries on many occasions. I have really enjoyed making and trying these new recipes. It's great to know that I'm feeding my family cleanly. I have enjoyed that the recipes are easy to follow and several don't include tons of ingredients that I don't have on hand. This book teaches you what clean eating is, what to, how to eat clean as well as how to cook clean. The recipes include appetizers, soups, salads, main dishes and desserts. I'm super excited to keep adding these recipes into our lives.

I did get this in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own honest opinions. 

Do you eat clean? What are your favorite clean eating recipes?
