Salvation Army *thrifting*



Sorry Its been a while since I blogged. I’ve been so busy lately! Anyways here is my little note on thrifting. Spontaneous fun with nothing in particular to buy and I stumble upon this cute pink car. I saw it shining like a little light in the corner. I peaked at Addy and she looked even more excited then I was. We both looked down at it and I said, “This is it. This is what we’re buying today.” All it needed was a tune up (a good cleaning) and I was Sold!! The price was fair too. $10. We wheeled the little thing up to the front and asked the cashier to hold it for us while we finished shopping. Like they say one mans trash is another mans treasure! I am so looking forward to many fun walks & creating memories with my daughter. Shopping at the Salvation Army is great because the proceeds go to their charity. Here are some of the things they support.

Sausage Spinach Frittata Recipe & Meal Planning for the Week


Yesterday was my first time EVER meal prepping. I realized last week that my eating habits weren’t satisfactory. I would eat whatever was easy and fast to make which included; lunch meat sandwiches, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, & basically any thing carbohydrate I could find in the refrigerator.

So I decided that I’ve had enough of my old “fast food” trend and wanted to start a new healthier “fast food” trend. With Pinterest’s help I came up with some healthy and delicious meals & snacks for the week.

Starting with my breakfast Frittata. Here is the recipe:

  • 1 package of chicken Sausage (Diced)
  • 1 Onion (Diced)
  • 1 package of spinach
  • Garlic (minced)
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 cups of milk
  • salt & pepper
  • Dijon Mustard

Preheat oven to 425. Start by browning the chicken sausage. After that move sausage to a plate and add the onions and garlic to the frying pan. While that is browning prepare the spinach. You can choose whatever method works for you, I boiled mine. Next, mix the onion and sausage mixture together and spread in a large baking dish. Next drain and spread the spinach to the dish. Crack the eggs in a big bowl, add the Dijon, salt and pepper, milk and flour. Whisk until flour is completely dissolved. Pour the egg mixture over the spinach and voila. Pop into the oven for about 25 minutes or when the egg is cooked. You can tell when the egg is cooked by poking with a fork and making sure it is dry.

Cut and put in the refrigerator. Microwave or bake to reheat! Makes for a healthy and filling breakfast or snack.

The second meal I prepared was grilled chicken breast, green beans, and pasta. Pretty self explainatory!!


  • The last thing I prepared was a Yogurt parfait. I did nonfat vanilla yogurt with bananas, strawberries, and granola. The parfaits in the picture do not have granola in them yet.IMG_2737


Adeline’s 1st Birthday Shoot


This is a picture from Adelines first birthday photoshoot. My friend from work took the photos and I was truly surprised at how amazing they turned out! I had no idea how talented my friend was. He gave us a really good deal too soo win/win for us:) I am so thankful that he took the time to shoot for us. It was such a fun day.

I prepared for her photo shoot about 4 months in advanced. LOL. literally….. I wanted to do a few different scenes. We ended up doing a cupcake smash (publix), bubbles (publix), balloons (publix), & I had a rocking chair prop (home), and a little wicker basket (home) that we used for a table.


The whole point of us getting her photos done was to have them as keepsakes, yes. But I wanted them on her 1st Birthday Invitations. (which my friend did as well.) & They looked fabulous! We are so blessed to have stumbled upon someone so talented! I also wanted the photos hanging on twine in mini paper clips at the party. Which I ended up doing.. But it rained for two hours during her outside birthday party, I had to take them down.

I will share more about her actually Birthday Party on a different post.

Thanks for reading:)


Hello all!

As you can tell I am very new to the blogging world & I am still trying to figure out how to work this thing! This is my very first post and I want to take some time to talk about fitness and how I incorporate it into my busy day.

I prepare my workout at night before bed. I will set a few goals and a workout plan for the next day. My workouts are about 20 minutes long and I will start them after my daughters first nap (when she is nice and happy). I will pick something and target that for the day, for instance I do abs one day, legs the next, and so on. I will do HIIT (high intensity interval training) for 50 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest. I repeat each workout at least 1x. Most of my workouts are inspired from past boot camp classes, and Melissa benders blog. I have now started creating my own routines that work best for me and my body. I enjoy that the most because I can modify it to work best for me and my fitness levels.
