We're loving the warm fall ☀️🌾🍂 that's holding on! Soaking up as much sun as possible before the PNW rain comes back for another nine months! . Speaking of fall... Have you check out the AMAZING chocolate chip cookie crust apple pie I shared on my blog today? It's TOTALLY tasty and not totally the best for the waistline of a mama trying to lose her baby weight. Check it out on the blog (www.simplemomentsstick.com) and click the link in my profile that will take you to a coupon for Immaculate Baking cookie dough! 🍪🍪
Mama, what are you letting him do to me?
#ad There's something calming about having a morning routine so it's what I'm always trying to do with my boys. Problem is, our lives don't really work with a consistent morning routine! Some mornings the boys are up at six, other mornings they have to be woken up so we can get out the door for church. Instead of getting frustrated, I've chosen to figure out what things ARE our routine in the morning and forget about the rest. . One of our routines is juice. Seriously. Caleb NEEDS juice the moment he wakes up or he's a Mr. Cranky pants. Juice to him is what coffee is to his mother. Welch's sent us a box with their two new juice options that have coconut water in them! They're the same taste as 100% juice but they have 30% less sugar! YES PLEASE!!!! And those pineapple cups... ADORABLE! . Check out the blog to read more about our lack of morning routine (www.simplemomentsstick.com) and click the link in my profile to learn more about the fantastic new coconut water grape juice from Welch's.
#ad My heart is thrilled that my idea of trying creamy cauliflower alfredo sauce actually worked out! I was afraid it just wouldn't satisfy my craving for something creamy but it did! Check out the blog (www.simplemomentsstick) for the fantastic recipe featuring @barillaus gluten free pasta! #pastaperfection
Call me hippy but I'm so into essential oils! They're amazing, you guys! I'm such a skeptical person and it took me so long to even be willing to try essential oils out but, since I did, I am hooked! I wrote a blog post on Friday all about essential oils, why I love them, and why I decided I needed to join in on selling them! Don't write me off as another person just trying to make a buck - check out the post to hear my heart! (www.simplemomentsstick.com) . Are you interested in what essential oils are all about? I'll be teaching an online essential oils class in the next two weeks and would LOVE to have you join in! Click on the link in my profile to sign up to be notified when the class is coming! You won't regret it!
Happy Friday, friends!!! Who else loves that it's National Coffee Day?!??!! My hand is WAY up! . I'm SO thankful for the weekend and that I get to go on a date with my favorite dude tomorrow! First date since having Jojo! (Thanks Nannie and Papa!) What are your plans for the weekend?
It's you turn, no mama turn Cha-cher, Cha-cher! Eat appoo chip! . Translation - It's my turn, not mama's turn Faster, Faster! I want to eat dried apples! . We got to raid some friends' trees for apples and, after processing two laundry baskets worth of apples, ended up with applesauce, blackberry-apple jam, dried apples, and apple pie filling! Although it would have been so much easier and less time consuming to do it myself, I decided to put in the extra time and let Caleb be my little helper. Peeling each apple added about a minute per apple but hearing him get so excited when he was rotating it fast made the extra time so worth it! I hope these are the times he remembers - the times where I let life slow down a little bit and included him in on the fun! . Are there things in your life that you allow extra time to be spent in order to include your kids? Or maybe you're feeling a little convicted and you need to start slowing down and letting your kids help... I want to know!
