Citrus Bliss Smoothie Recipe

Citrus Bliss Smoothie

 

Ever since I got my new Blendtec Blender I have been on the look out for some great new smoothie recipes to try!  This one is one of our new favorites!  We call it the Citrus Bliss Smoothie and it’s got tons of vitamin C packed in!  We will be drinking lots of these all winter long to help combat against colds.  Plus, it reminds me of summer.  Which will come in handy when we are fighting -20 temperatures!   It’s a mix of orange, tangerine, nectarine and apple.  It’s sweet, refreshing and absolutely delicious.

Another thing I love about it is that I can add some extra fiber right in and you would never know!  Yes, we are going to talk about fiber for a second.  Fiber is so important and most of us don’t get enough.   I know that I don’t didn’t.  Most adults only get 15 grams of fiber a day while The Institute of Medicine recommends that women get 25 grams and men get 38 grams.  A day!  Getting enough fiber helps us to maintain a healthy weight and lowers our risk or diabetes and heart disease.  Plus, when our bodies are working at our best – we just plain feel better.

So in an effort to be healthier I have been working on getting more fiber in my diet.  I’ve been trying to add more fiber filled foods, but sometimes I need a little extra help.  So I have been supplementing with Metamucil.

metamucil

I honestly was a little intimidated purchasing this for the first time!  I didn’t know how it would taste or how it would effect me.  I was really surprised when I got to Meijer and saw that the Metamucil had so many products and flavors to try.  Right now in my cabinets I have the Berry Smooth and Orange Smooth, but I think that the Pink Lemonade will be added to our collection too!  I’ve been adding a serving to my smoothies each morning.  You can’t even taste them in there!  And as an added bonus, it has been helping to keep me full longer.

I haven’t dressed up for Halloween in years but we found the BEST costumes for all of us at Halloween Express and I just had to get them. The kids are so obsessed with Star Wars right now that we’re sort of buried in it – books, movies, puzzles, toys. So this was perfect. I can’t wait to answer the door this year!0000000000000000

Hallmark Poster Cards – Big Cards For Kids With Big Hearts

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser.
Hallmark

Let me just start this post with this:

I love my son! :) Joshua 2014

This kid is amazing.  He’s seriously my world.  I really don’t know what I did to deserve such an awesome son, but whatever it was – I’m so thankful!  It doesn’t matter what is going on – he is never in a bad mood.  He never argues.  He always has a positive attitude.  His heart, I swear, is made of pure gold.   I have honestly, never met a human being that cares about others like he does.

You know those proud mom moments?  I am so lucky.  I get them – a lot.  So when he does something a little extraordinary I try to make sure that he knows that I saw!  Usually that embarrasses him a little, but I want him to know how much he is appreciated and loved!  I want him to know that people see the little things he does when he thinks no one is watching and I want him to know that good things come to good people!

So the other day, I was at Walmart and I headed over to the Hallmark section.   We are HUGE Hallmark fans in our house and we send cards for EVERYTHING.  I wanted to get Josh a little card to let him know I loved him and I think he rocks.  Well, I found something a little bigger than a little card, but it was perfect!  (PS.  Did you know that Hallmark has a Card Reward Program?  Make sure to sign up here to get rewarded every time you purchase a Hallmark card – anywhere you purchase it!  For every 5 cards you purchase, you will earn a reward!  It’s super easy!)

I loved the card’s message.  Awesome in action!  Heck yeah!  Perfect!!  But the inside message was even better!

I loved it!  It was perfect.  Minus the happy birthday part! :) Since this was going to be just an everyday card I just scratched it out and put happy day!

This song has been stuck in my head for DAYS!  Ever since we got our costumes in from Halloween Express, Josh has been running around in his costume zapping up bad guys, monsters and even the dog.  Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year.  We love decorating.  We love the things to do in the fall.  (Apple picking?  Pumpkin carving?  Hay rides?  YES please!) But probably our favorite thing to do is to pick out the yearly Halloween costume.

Usually we wander into a party or Halloween store for the costume.  They are nice don’t get me wrong!  But they are so busy and crowded!  Plus the one near us only has ONE dressing room.  Yes, only one!  So the whole process takes a while.  Trying to find a costume….trying to find an associate…..trying to find another costume that they have your size in stock…..trying it on.  You get the idea.

halloween-express

This year, we decided to shop online and give Halloween Express a try.  Honestly, I’m glad we did!  Here’s why:

It was cheaper!

The costume prices were initially the same that you would find in a costume store, but they have coupon codes available to lower the price.  (And for you friends, I have a special coupon code just for you!  Use MCI2014C to score 15% off your order – no min purchase required!  You can also use the code FSMCIC2014ZLA for free shipping!)   Speaking of free shipping, Halloween Express offers free shipping to military personnel year round, which I think is pretty cool.  :)

 

Everything we needed was in stock!

Man, it was so nice to find a costume and find it in our size.  Although you can’t try it on, Halloween Express was awesome about providing size charts and even had videos for a lot of the costumes showing what they looked like on.  But just in case, they do offer free exchanges.  Did I mention it was in stock?  <— We even were able to find an Elsa costume in stock!! WOO HOO!!

 

It shipped quickly!

Our packages were sent out and received really quickly.  We had them within days of ordering!

 

No Crowds!

Well, unless you count the crowd around my computer….we were able to shop at home, without fighting the crowds at the store.  That’s the best part about shopping online right? :)

costume

HUGE selection!

There were TONS of costumes to choose from.  Everything was easy to find – search by character, age, category, pet costumes, family friendly costumes etc.  Organized – you bet!

But they have so much more than just Halloween costumes!  Tons of decorations for your yard, home and party!  Plus, they even had some things for Christmas!

Yes!  You read that right!  We are giving away TWO $100 gift cards to Halloween Express!  Get costumes (or decorations!) this year on us!

Moms Check In What is Your Ideal Girls Night Out?

Moms Check In 1 Topic 5 moms  (1)

 

National Women’s Friendship Day is this Saturday!   My friends are so important to me.  I think it is important to make a little time to spend with your friends.  Friends are just what we need to keep us grounded, calm and relaxed.  I need my friends for an occasional girl’s day or night.  Just a few hours with my friends and I am one happy lady! :)

My how times have changed. I really would have answered this so differently 15 years ago!  Now my ideal girls’ day out would be coffee and breakfast in a cute little coffee shop, followed by some sort of spa day. We need manicures and pedicures in there too. They don’t happen nearly often enough.  After that, some shopping and an early evening chick flick at the theater would be fantastic!  Now who wants to go with me?

My ideal GNO/GNI revolves around great food and great conversation, not necessarily in that order! It doesn’t happen often enough. Now that Sam is a little older I feel like I can take more “me” time so it’s bumped up on my priority list.

Jenni-Eaves1-213x300

My ideal girls night out would consist of a good chick flick, dinner at my fave spot – Texas Roadhouse, and maybe even an adult drink or two. I NEVER get those, darn it!! I’m pretty easy to please. A fun night IN with the girls would probably be spent watching a movie, some bad for us snacks and drinks and a DIY mani/pedi!

Girls Night is a necessity!  I am in a small group through our church called Girls Night Out (great name right?) and we meet every week.  I look forward to it!! We meet for a couple hours and talk, hang out, eat dinner, sometimes do a Pinterest inspired project.  I try to meet my best friend for lunch or manicures at least once a month.  Sometimes we go longer.  But we talk everyday!  I think we need to make some time for our friends not only for them, but for ourselves too!

What about you?  What is your ideal Girls Night Out?

Project Resell: What sold last week and for how much

  Project Resell: What sold this week on Ebay (and for how much!)

Last week’s auction I felt like could be a good one for me.  I didn’t get a ton of items, but I got some and they were the right price.  I had spent $165 last week at the auction and I had a good chunk of it all listed.  There are still a few things that I am listing and sorting, but most of it is all online.

Here are a few of the things that sold last week:

teapot

This teapot and sugar were in a box I paid $10 for.  I wasn’t sure about these since one was marked Limoges and the other was Venetian and while they were painted the same they were obviously two different pieces.  I had a few questions and 13 watchers on them.  I was a little surprised with that many people watching that they didn’t go up more, but I’m happy with what they sold for.  Especially since the teapot has a couple chips!

Paid: $10 for box
Teapot/sugar sold for: $16.88Other pieces in the box sold for: $28.75
Total Profit: $35.63

tea cup

This tea cup and saucer was also in a box.  I really just wanted the teacup and I probably could have gotten it cheaper if I would have waited (it was in a box with broken teacups and 3 mix matched saucers), but I really wanted it!  When they are doing choice you never know when it will be chosen!  This is a hard to find set.  It’s Royal Albert in the Old English Rose pattern.  This pattern does well, but this was the matte black one so it sells really well.

Paid: $25 for box
Teacup and saucer sold: $52.00
Other pieces in box: (Sold 3 saucers for $2.99 each) $8.97
Total profit: $35.97

limoges

There was a very pretty full set of dishes at the auction that I have been kicking myself all week for not bidding on.  They sold for $50, but they were so pretty.  So when these large Limoges dinner plates came up, I made sure to get them!

Paid: $50
Sold: $138.59
Total Profit: $88.59

This auction had a whole case of jewelry, knives, etc.  They were selling it out by choice for a long time – things went anywhere from $4-$40 each.  After the bidding slowed down they sold the whole case and I was the winning bid at $15.  I really didn’t think it would go for that low!  When I got home I sorted through it.  Some of the pieces I had to pull out because they were broken, knotted really badly, etc.  I hate scrapping vintage jewelry, but there really wasn’t anything anyone could do with half of a ring, so I took them to a local shop.  It was worth $80 in scrap so I more than paid for my case.  I am still listing a few things from the case this week, but here are few things that sold out of the case last week:

rolls razor

This is a Rolls Razor.  It is a compact razor for men and everything comes in the box.

Sold: $17.50

  id bracelet

This bracelet is called a Forget-Me-Not bracelet.  It is from around WWII and people would get a charm for each family member’s name.  It was sterling and a neat piece to find.

Sold: $38.90

buckles

These took some research to find out what they were.  The clips said France on them, but honestly when I bought them I thought they were hair clips!  Turns out I was wrong and they are shoe buckles.

Sold: $39.99

There were a few more pieces in the case that sold like brooches, pins, tie tacks, etc.

Here are the totals so far:

Paid: $15.00
Sold for: $197.63

Some things that I listed last week didn’t sell, so they are re-listed this week.

Last week I sold $488.59 worth of items, so the $165 that I spent at the auction was more than paid back.  Plus, there is still more to sell from that auction!

What’s Your Go To Breakfast On a Busy Morning?

Moms Check In 1 Topic 5 moms  (1)

Happy Friday everyone!  Welcome to a new week’s Moms Checks In post!  New to Moms Checks In?  It’s where different moms come together to talk about a weekly topic.  It’s awesome for us to find out what other moms are doing and learn from each other!  This week’s topic is all about breakfast.

Breakfast

What is your go to breakfast on a busy morning?

stephanie

I make sure Sam has a good breakfast but on a busy weekday morning I grab an English muffin—with jam and peanut butter—a banana and a green tea, which I eat in the car. I eat in the car waaay too often as you could tell if you could see the crumbs under the seat.

Well, when I think of it the night before I make a batch of baked oatmeal.  It’s SO good and the combinations are really endless.  But most of the time, let’s be honest.  I don’t think ahead (often).  We are big cereal and banana fans.  I’m trying to be good and eat before we leave for school because last year we got in a bad habit of going through the Starbucks drive through on the way to school, a lot.  I will say, they have yummy breakfast sandwiches! :)

My daughter loves cereal and will eat Mini Wheats with blueberries every day which is quick and easy and works for me! My son likes frozen waffles and French toast sticks with peanut butter on them and fruit, usually blueberries or raspberries. I try to fill them up on a school day and get some protein and fruit in them.  Now, on the weekends? My husband cooks and makes blueberry pancakes (can you tell we like blueberries yet?) on Saturday and scrambled eggs on Sunday. Those are my favorite days, of course!

Kay, so I’d love to say something really awesome like homemade biscuits and gravy – but uhhhhh no. My go-to breakfast on a busy weekday morning is coffee. Occasionally I’ll squeeze in a granola bar and I intentionally buy the ones with protein so I get that little bit in the mornings. Now, on the weekend – it’s all kinds of breakfast up in our house! My husband can THROW down in the kitchen!

DIY Light Up Haunted House – Easy & Fun Halloween Craft

DIY Light Up Haunted House

 

When I was little my great-grandmother had a big dollhouse.  I am assuming someone had made it.  Inside there was furniture to move and tons of miniatures to create the perfect home.  I loved playing with it!  In fact, every time I was there that was my go-to thing.  A few weeks ago I was thinking about the doll house.  And the thought of making one popped into my head.   BUT I have a boy.  A boy who if I asked him if he wanted a doll house would look at me like I’ve lost my stinking mind.  So I thought well, how awesome would it look sitting all decked out as a Haunted House?  Fun right?

I was so excited.  So I ran to the store and….those babies are a tad expensive!  So while making one is still on my crafting bucket list, this year we decided to tone it down a tad.  And make a smaller, light up haunted house.  And guess what?  It was SO fun.  Seriously, the possibilities are endless!  And it’s so easy!  I think this could easily be a yearly tradition with the kiddos and creating your own, Halloween village!

DIY Haunted House

So you need a house right?  These paper mache houses are PERFECT!  I love that the lid comes off (so you can easily make it a light up house!) and they come in different shapes and sizes.  I bought mine at Hobby Lobby and this size was $5.99.  It was 40% off too, so that made it only $3.60!  If you don’t have a Hobby Lobby close by, you can order them through their website, but they only come in a pack of 3 (multiple sizes).

I had also picked up a few wooden birdhouses to try before I found this!

You can also look at Amazon.  They have different shaped houses, but they are a little more expensive.

Then you just need craft supplies!  Go crazy and use what you have!  I used paint, scrapbook paper, small pebbles, Popsicle sticks and even wax paper!

DIY light up haunted house halloween craft

I cut out ghost shapes from the wax paper and hot glued them in the windows.

DIY Haunted House

To get it to light up I simply used an Energizer battery operated candle.  I love that it flickers (because what haunted house doesn’t flicker?) and as a bonus, it smells like vanilla.

Since our house was lighting up I went ahead and stuck a piece of scrapbook ‘wallpaper’ inside.

DIY Haunted House

I cut Popsicle sticks and painted them grey and just added the RIP with a fine tip Sharpie to create tombstones.  The broom was a dollhouse miniature.

DIY Haunted House

Our boarded up front door was just broken Popsicle sticks.

I added a few other small miniatures like pumpkins and on the roof I added two crows.

Our house is pretty simple, but I like it.  You can get as creative as you want!

 

Here are a few miniatures I found online that would be perfect!
