I'm Back!

Hey everyone! I am back from hiatus. So much has happened over the last 3 years... wow has it really been that long? Guess so. We are now a family of 4. Which makes my heart so happy. We welcomed "papoose" December 2014. Hubby got a job closer to home and I have been working on getting my personal trainer certificate. I will be certified in December of this year. I was just accepted to start back at our local university in January so I can finish my degree in management and then the plan is to get my masters in teaching. Life got a little rocky last year but this year seems to be amazing so far!

We took the boys to Disney for their first time over the spring and now I am trying to take them back as much as possible. The goose loves it. I took him and a friend of mine and her little boy there this past weekend. We all had a blast. Now to plan Octobers trip. ;)

I recently started training to run my first half marathon. I want to do the RunDisney race in February. It's been a goal of mine and recently I started a "30 by 30" list (which I will post more about later) and it is one of my goals.

We have recently made a couple changes around the house. With everything going on the past couple years I slacked off a bit. Not anymore. We painted our front door turquoise instead of the maroon that it was. And I bought this CUTE outdoor light from Pottery Barn. I am in LOVE. It is a little hard to see from the road but when you get up to the porch it is beautiful. Seems to flow perfectly with the new door.

Missed y'all!! Hope to see you back tomorrow. :)

Kozy Shack Indulgent Pudding Giveaway

I am so excited to do my first giveaway since coming back to blogging. I had the opportunity to get a free pack of KozyShack Indulgent Pudding from BzzAgent. I had heard of KozyShack before but I had never tried them. They recently came out with a new line called "Indulgent Recipe". I generally like pudding so figured I would give it  try. When I got to Target I noticed they had chocolate, vanilla and salted caramel. I am a huge sucker for fall flavors so of course I went with the salted caramel. Speaking of, have you tried the new Greek yogurt that is salted caramel flavor? Its to die for! Love it! I enjoyed that one so much so I got the same flavor in pudding. Look how yummy it looks.

When I got home I quickly tried it. I mean it looked so good, I just didn't want to wait. My first thought when opening the package was the pudding looks thick. Surely there was an air bubble in there right? Nope. Just really thick pudding. Right then I knew I wouldn't be a frequent …


So far we are really liking the Paleo diet. We don't follow it 100% of the time, but I try to make at least one meal and all snacks Paleo. Working on getting there though! We are also trying to live a more "clean" lifestyle. It's great because it is something the whole family has been able to really get into. For Earth Day we decided to build an 8x4 vegtable garden. Little man LOVES to water the garden. I also made my own laundry soap! I haven't gotten to use it yet though because I want to use up the old stuff first, but I am looking forward to it. It was so easy and cheap to make that I think it will be the only way we do our soap from now on. I am looking for a similar recipe for dish soap and other home goods. The next project we are looking into is a laundry line. Any thoughts and opinions from those who have used one before? Here is the link to the soap I made. :)
