It’s no secret that I love survey sites. Don’t get me wrong, taking surveys is not my favorite thing to do! But it’s an easy way to save some extra money for the Holidays and that I do love.  Recently I have come across yet another site that can make you some extra cash if your willing to put a little bit of time into it – SurveyJunkie! As always I want to say that doing surveys online is not a get rich quick endeavor. That said I was able to make $1000 in 6 months when I really wanted to save for something.  SoRead More →

Earlier this month my daughter missed out on a school party due to the flu. In fact, we all got the flu, how fun right? But it wasn’t being sick that bothered her so much as missing out on the party with friends. To try and make up for it I promised that she could create her own party snacks to share with her sister. Because we are trying to be a little bit healthier as a family, snacks like these are rare so this was a suitable pick me up in her eyes. These snacks are not Keto Friendly and so my husband and IRead More →

A few months ago I made a commitment to being healthy. It started with adapting my diet to the life-changing Keto way of eating and evolved into hiking and eventually running. At the start of 2018, I decided I wanted to do more than jog about the block. I wanted to run a 5k. Running a 5k is a huge goal for me.  First of all, I have exercise-induced asthma – not the greatest start to this project! Secondly, even when my asthma wasn’t bothering me I had not run in close to 15 years unless you count chasing after kids.  I was a total couchRead More →

One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2018 was to get Organized. Keeping the house from dissolving into Chaos (especially since having children) is an area of my life that I have struggled with for as long as I can remember. I know I am not alone in this but I am determined, this year will be better. This year I will figure out how to get the house working like the well-oiled machine I know it can be. Getting Organized in 2018 As the first step in this project, I went searching for a magnetic calendar and organizer for the fridge. Originally I wantedRead More →

A few months ago my husband called me up with some information I was skeptical about at first. Like many people, he had been wanting to lose some weight for a very long time. We had tried prescription medication (Phentermine) from the Dr, portion control, attempting to just eat healthier, Slim Fast and other programs in the past and nothing worked. If we did lose weight it would come right back. Keto changed everything. By following the Keto diet my husband has lost a total of 62Ibs and I have lost 36Ibs. I am not going to lie, when he first told me about thisRead More →
