18 Easter Hacks

15. Add a puzzle piece….

This is one of my favorite ideas!  Usually at our house the kids get their eggs, dump them and count up their candy.  Then the parents go through counting eggs (usually two or three times) to make sure we don’t have eggs that get stranded outside.  While you are filling up the eggs but one puzzle piece in each egg.  Then, once the kids find the eggs they can take the puzzle pieces out and put the puzzle together.  If the puzzle is complete, they have found all the eggs!

Check out some great puzzles here!

These cute coupons are free to print and would be a great candy alternative for filling up Easter Eggs!

18. Impress the kids (and the adults!) with this trick!

This is one cool trick and only takes 5 seconds!  After all nothing says Easter like a little egg trick!

Apple Butter Banana Bread Recipe

apple butter banana bread

I’m going to share with you a recipe that has been a favorite for a long time!  When I was in college I waited tables.  The tips paid the bills, but didn’t leave a whole lot left over.  One day before my morning shift, I made a few loaves and brought them in.  The next thing I knew, people were paying me to make them bread.  I ended up making about 15 loaves a week!  Seriously, people loved this stuff!

This mix of apple butter, bananas, cinnamon and nutmeg is amazing.  Usually I make this bread in a mini loaf pan. That way I can wrap up the loaves and freeze most of them.  Having individual loaves is great for packing lunches.  Not only does it help to keep my portion control in check, but it’s nice when I want a sweet treat I can just thaw out a loaf!

I promise you!  This will be your new go to quick bread loaf!

Summer Beauty Essentials

Summer Beauty Essentials

At first I thought if I just kept telling myself enough times that summer was coming that it would eventually happen.  And then, I realized, hey, summer is really just around the corner!   It’s time to break out the sun glasses, the flip flops, and those summer dresses!  Sunshine and school vacation time will be here before you know it.

Are you ready?

Is your beauty routine ready?  Here are summer beauty essentials you can’t be without!

venus

1. Gillette Venus Swirl razor

Summer time means tanks, shorts and swim suits.  It also means ‘shaving season’.  Number one on our summer essentials list is a great razor.

Available at Walmart, this Gillette Venus Swirl razor is different than an ordinary razor.  There is actually a flex ball on it which allows it to really glide and manuever while you shave.  No more tricky areas and missed spots!  Plus, with 5 blades it gives a close shave meaning extra soft skin.

31826_3_373_Razor_03042015122226

And it’s pretty! (Which counts!)

venus4

2. Gillette Venus Olay Violet Swirl Shave Gel

Number two on our list is a shaving gel.  I know many people that don’t use shaving gel anymore.  But did you know that by not using them you are more susceptible to cuts and drier skin?

Also available at Walmart, the Gillette Venus Olay Violet Swirl Shave Gel is an absolute must!  This gel contains 5 times more moisturizers and helps get you the perfect shave!

3. Nail Polish

Summer is the season for color!  Break out the corals, the teals, the purples and the sparkles!  Put a fresh color on your fingers and your toes.  After all, with flip flop season here your toes will be front and center!

4. Lip Balm

My lip balm for winter helps guard against dry, cracked lips.  But for summer, I want something a little different.  I still want something to moisturize (because dry lips can happen in any season!), but I want something that has great color and also contains a SPF.

5. Sunscreen Cosmetics

Speaking of SPF…. I know that nowadays you hear about sunscreen …. a lot!  But that’s because it’s vital.  I also like to wear cosmetics that contain it.  I switch out many colors of my make-up in the summer.  My skin is a different shade, trends change and some colors just look better in the summer time.  During the summer I like to keep my make up simple.  Tinted moisturizer (with sunscreen of course!), my lip balm, and waterproof mascara are all three musts in my book!

Walmart is a great place to be able to get all of your summer essentials in one place.  With low prices, you are able to pick everything you need without breaking the bank!  And to help get you started, we will be giving away a $20 Walmart gift card!

Our favorite Easter Traditions:

LindsayHeadShot3Border-300x300

My Mom always made the ‘lambie cake’ for Easter every year. She has this cake mold shaped like a lamb and she always decorated it up to look so cute every year. I’m not that ambitious but I love a sweet treat for the kids and we have fun filling and hiding baskets and eggs. I think I get a bigger kick out of finding good hiding spots than they do out of finding them!

Easter was always one of my favorite holidays growing up. My dad would always buy about 10 large chocolate bunnies and hide them around our living room. (Why so many? So he could eat them, too! Haha) After we had our 9am chocolate fix, we’d head to church and then to my grandparent’s house for turkey dinner with all the fixings. Every year it was the same and I loved it. We’re still developing our traditions with my son Sam, but Easter is becoming one of his favorites.

We always had Easter Egg hunts at my grandma and papaw’s house when I was little. Now that I have my own family, we still get together every year with our big ole’ family and let the littles hunt eggs. They always have such a great time. My addiction to those Cadbury Creme Filled Eggs comes into full on and I always have to keep a stash hidden. Shhhhh!!!

I love Easter. It’s an important day for us and what it symbolizes. We try to do something really fun each year. Last year for the older kids we put glow sticks in the eggs and let them hunt them after dark. They loved that! It’s a wonderful day filled with faith, friends, family and of course, a trip from the Easter Bunny!

30 Before 30 List

Writing a 30 Before 30 List

Last week was my birthday.  The big 2-8.  It was one of those birthdays that had me saying that I could no longer claim I was in my early twenties or even mid twenties.  (I know, last year was a stretch!)  And in just 2 short years I would be 30.  There is a lot that I wanted to do before then!

My twenties went by way to fast.  A lot of growing up and self discovery.  I used to have a bit of anxiety about getting older.  But I honestly believe that this year will be better than the last and that my thirties will be better than my twenties.

A friend suggested that I write a 30 Before 30 list.  I loved the idea of celebrating my 30th birthday in two years, but also the completion of 30 goals.  I also loved the idea of going into my thirties feeling on track, confident and happy.

So here is my list!  What would you put on yours?

5 financial goals before 30

Financial

– Pay off my debt.  95% of my debt is student loans, but student loans or not, I want them all gone.  It would be amazing to go into my 30’s debt free!

– Make the 700 Club.  My credit score, well, sucks.  And that’s the nicest thing I can say about it.  Stupid decisions made and now I’m paying the price.  However, I don’t have that much debt other than my student loans.  So, I’m working hard on doing things the right way and getting it cleaned up.

– Create a savings plan. I love my job.  I really do!  Blogging has some amazing perks – working from home, finding out about new products, doing what I love, etc.  But one thing that it doesn’t have is a benefits package.  I really need a savings plan in place.

– Learn about the different kinds of investments.  I’m honestly not that knowledgeable in the different financial terms, investment opportunities and the best way to utilize them.  I would love to learn more so I can start making the right decisions.

– Get a better Credit Card.  The credit card I have now has a high interest rate, but I’m hoping that with my credit score improvements I can close this account and get a better one!

Personal Finance Books

Here are some books that I’m planning on reading to help with my financial goals:

5 Health Goals To Have Before 30

Health

Take my vitamins everyday.  And stop forgetting to take my medicine!  I’m so horrible about being consistent with it.  You would think it wouldn’t be that hard, so I’m not sure how/why I keep forgetting!

Give up Diet Coke.   Ok. This is supposed to be a realistic list.  :)  Drink 6 glasses of water and 2 glasses of green tea.  Then, if I still want something then I can treat myself to a Diet Coke.  And who knows, maybe my soda will be a good motivation!

Eat real food.  Get rid of junk and make foods myself instead of buying them.

– Get the body that I’ve been talking about getting.  That means losing the extra pounds and working these muscles out!  I want to go into my 30’s feeling good and confident!

Run (yes, actually run) a 5K.  I actually hate running.  But that might have something to do with it being hard and me not being very good at it.  :)

6 Places To Go Before 30

Places To Go

– Go to the Kentucky Derby

– Start an Annual Camping Trip

– Take a trip to the amusement park.

– Stay in a tree house hotel

– Take a cruise

Go to Bangkok

7 Things To Do Before You Turn 30

Things To Do

– Complete a 365 Photo Challenge

– Decorate our home with cool antique pieces

– Find a place to volunteer regularly

– Be more active in our church

Build a fantastic wardrobe and define my personal style

– Go tailgating

– Buy the perfect piece of art

7 business goals before 30

Business

– Publish an E-Book

Master YouTube

– Get professional head-shots taken.

– Get half a million page views in a month.

– Write for another publication.

– Speak at an event

– Reach 250,000 total social media followers
