Every Sunday in my home is “chore” and is the day that my family and I set time aside to clean our home. Everyone has set jobs to do, and when we all work together, it usually takes only about an hour to get everything done and our home in tip-top shape. I credit this to the fact that I never really let our home get out of control messy and I do a mini clean every night keep mess from accumulating during the week.
I was SUPER excited to hear that I was selected for the Clever Girls #SwifferEffect #GreenBox campaign and was gifted TWO big green boxes full of Swiffer products. One for me…and one for a friend! Continue reading →
Back to School season is upon many and for a few like us…already here! Kayden’s first day of school was yesterday and I figured now would be a great time to re-share this post from last year giving you a few ways to celebrate the back to school season. At the end of this post, I’m sharing some pictures of Kayden’s big day so be sure to check them out!
If you have been following me on Instagram, you’d know that my family and I JUST got back from our Disney vacation! We had sooo much fun and I can’t wait to go more in detail about the things we did in some future posts.
We all look at vacations as time to wind down, forget about the cares in our usually everyday lives and really let our hair hang down! This typically means less moving around, more eating out, and my favorite thing to do on vacation: sip fruity alcoholic drinks by the pool. Today, however, I’m writing about how I managed to go on vacation and not only gain ONE pound…but lose two of them!
Yes…as the title suggests, we are talking staying healthy on vacation!
Chicken salad is a big summer staple in my home and is probably on the menu at least once every couple of weeks or so. I love it because it’s quick to prepare, I can make a lot at once, and we can typically eat sandwiches for at least two days, which frees me up from cooking two days in a row. The girls also love it, and it’s very rare that they actually request a dish that I make, so I tend to make it often to keep them happy.
We have a local restaurant, Chicken Salad Chick, that serves a variety of different flavors of the chicken salad. When I was there recently, I decided to try their Barbie-Q style and it was sooooo good, I KNOW I had to try my best to recreate it!
This BBQ chicken salad is my first attempt at knocking off the Chicken Salad Chick recipe and I must say…it turned out very well!
So here’s a rundown of my life lately….wake up…slave at work…get off…slave at the gym…leave the gym…slave at home. Go to sleep, wake up and start all over again! Even my weekends have been super hectic! Every time I get ready to think of a post in my head…something bombards my brain and I never get the chance to get it out here on the blog…boo, boo, and BOO.
Anyway, I wanted to make sure I got something out this week, so I figured I’d do an Instagram recap! You all know I love these things, as I love to give a little background on some of the snapshots because sometimes the captions just aren’t enough! Instagram is about the only Social Media site I use regularly now, so if you want to keep up with comings and goings of yours truly…be sure to add me here!
