Month: April 2012

I’m so in love with you already…



So we have decided to let you in on our big news! We are expecting baby #2 this November and couldn’t be more excited! I’m 9 weeks today and although things are still very small and new, I really wanted to share the news and my journey from start to finish with you. I apologize for my lack of blog posts these past few weeks. Energy has been at an all time low, but I’m beginning to feel normal again, and seeing the little heartbeat today brought so much joy and the realization that this is really happening! 

Let the adventures begin~~*

DIY projects and Family Easter fun





Fitting a “Burn the Easter egg off” workout in


Love these ladies



This weekend was super busy and super fun! My beautiful sister in-law and her husband were in town from lovely Vancouver. With their visit comes lots of family time and sitting around scanning Pinterest for the newest DIY project. Every time Jillian comes into town I try to have some new craft or art project finished that I can impress her with:) She is truly such a talented sister to have and I pray she starts a blog so you can all creep on her amazing projects!(Don’t you just love her circle scarf?! Yep, she made it!

Here is a little shower curtain idea I decided to complete this weekend. Lets be honest, a good shower curtain that is unique in some way, shape or form can really send your decorating budget for a spin. So what I did I  do? I headed to Michaels and picked up some Martha Stewart fabric paint, a stencil, a fabric roller brush and had some fun!

See finished project below-

Cookies for breakfast!






While browsing (some may say creeping) on my friend Shanna’s facebook page, I came across a recipe for breakfast cookies and decided re-make the recipe and share its deliciousness with you!

*Tip* Make these cookies as part of your weekly food prep, so that when those cravings to curl up with a donut,cup cake or chocolate bar come knocking, you can squash it with this healthy little treat.




Click the above link for the original recipe or use my altered version below!

3 mashed bananas

1/3 cup apple sauce

2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats

1/4 almond or coconut milk

1 cup Holy crap cereal

1 tsp vanilla

1 T cinnamon

1 packet of stevia

For something a little sweeter, add 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of coconut powder for a double chocolate treat!

Mix all ingredients together. Spoon the dough by teaspoonful onto a greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cool and serve.  Leftovers can be frozen.
