Quick and Easy Vegetarian Energy Bites

Hello friends! I've been so busy with work and life and everything in between, but that's not stopping me from getting myself and my family a little healthier. I'm slowly (very slowly) transitioning into the vegan lifestyle. I was vegetarian for 4 years of my life while in college and after. I started eating white meat again when I got pregnant because I didn't do the whole vegetarian thing right. I didn't get enough protein so I was always dragging and tired and didn't feel quite right. This time I'm doing it right and I've been coming up with easy recipes that I think are going to help...

A Year Comparison: The Living Room

I think I want to do this every year at the beginning of the year... It's kind of fun looking back at my old posts. I love seeing how much our house has transformed in just a short time. Its crazy for me to think back even just a couple months ago and how different our house is now that we've moved everything around (you can read more on that story HERE) As you probably already know, this room used to be our dining room. We never really used it as a dining room so this functions much better for us as our living room because it's right off of our kitchen. Let's see how this room looked just last march...

Wallpaper Feature Wall: Pros and Cons

Hi, friends! I had a very productive day outside today. It's so crazy how much the weather changes here in Missouri. Today it was 60 degrees and I had all of the windows and doors open. Just last week, school was cancelled because of the bad weather... But I'm not complaining. I've been dreaming about spring and to have a spring like day today was much needed. I got so much done. Last weekend, we went to Target (surprise) and I spotted this brick stick on wall paper. I thought I'd give it a shot and see how I liked it. I have some pros and cons to share with you today...

New Master Bedroom Tour: Part One

Finally, the room I've been sneak peaking is done! Well... one side is done. If you follow me on Instagram, you know why I've waited so long to do the other side. I had to wait for new curtain rods to come in, and I have to take the curtains down, wash them, fill in the holes and paint. Hang up the new rods, and curtains and then it'll be done. Also I want to do something different to the fireplace so it could be a bit but I wanted to show the side that is done...

Quick and Easy Vegan Shakes

My first recipe post... There's a reason for this. I don't like to cook and I'm soooooooo not good at it. But I try and I do make dinner for my family (almost) every night. I've been on a healthy kick lately, trying to get my family and I to eat cleaner and healthier. I've never eaten poorly really... I've never liked fast food, or soda, or meat. But I also don't eat the things I should like fruits and vegetables. Basically, I like carbs...

A Year Comparison: The Kitchen

Ok, so I really didn't want to do two kitchen posts close to each other but I had some good lighting this weekend in the kitchen (which is rare) so I quickly got some pictures because I knew I wanted to do a comparison series to compare my house today to a year ago...
