Frozen Fruit Desserts & How I Ruined My Sons Life

Pin It
You know when dinner is over and you just REALLY want something sweet but NOT bad for you cause you have been awesome at eating right all day? Well this treat will trick you brain and you taste buds and satisfy well it did for me anyways. Oh and did I mention it is soo easy!

A couple weekends ago Dylan and I were taking a bath together. {This is so off subject but I had to share} KJ was watching TV. The curtain was shut and he cracks it open, shuts it and starts yelling at us "You guys are taking a bath TOGETHER??!!" "What is wrong with you guys??!!" "You guys are seriously disgusting!!" For the remaining two hours of the night before he went to bed. The next day was Sunday where my mom stopped by and he told her about the story.. the Monday he told the babysitter the story.. This went on and on and you can imagine how embarrassed I was! Not Dylan though now Dylan uses it against him when he acts up.. KJ doesn't do something we ask Dylan hits him with a "Hey babe will you go start the bath so we can take one together?" KJ runs and does whatever it is he wasn't doing before while running he screams "You guys are disgusting!!!" "Don't start that bath!!" So the lesson I learned here is that at 7 years old they are at a fragile little state and you gotta watch your moves. AND you need to take your baths together when the midgets go to bed haha. Sorry KJ! Haha

Do you have any stories like this to share so that I feel better??

The crazy thing was was that seriously everyone was complementing on my hair ALL DAY! Even people I didn't know on the street! So I thought I would share these 5 easy steps to take to get this look. It literally takes about 5 minutes or less to whip this baby out!

Pizza Sandwich {Quick Lunch Idea}

At our house we call these Pizza Sandwich's and you may or may not agree with the name but we feel like they taste exactly like Papa Murphy's Gourmet Chicken and Garlic Pizza. Haha, if you have tried this pizza and make these sandwiches after you get the recipe you HAVE to tell me if you agree with this statement or not. It will blow your mind cause the two do not even have the same ingredients.. Besides all of that I thought we could all use a quick and healthy lunch idea to get back into our bikini bods. Here she is!

Because of my New Years Check Myself List check it out here I have been really working on my goals that I set for myself and here are some pictures to show you how I have been doing that... Check out these icicles! They are even larger now! These bad boys are right outside KJ's window. This is me Recognizing the little things..

Again with the recognize the little things..
This gift was from my friend Katherine @ The Real Food Runner! You need to stop by her blog and check it out if you haven't already been following her. She was doing a giveaway and I WON! Thanks Katherine for the awesome stuff! Don't take offense to me calling this a "little" thing it wasn't little if you would have seen my face when I opened my package and read the cute card she sent. It was a "huge" smile!

Livin' in the moment..
This picture was KJ and I playing "roseria" as he calls it.. I was doing laundry and he insisted we put undies on our head and run around our house playing tag and when you get tagged you scream roseria! Not sure where he came up with this but it was super fun. Yes I am wearing a green thong that is CLEAN okay no worries. In the great words of the gingerbread man from Shrek "It's a thong"!

Living in the moment watching KJ roll down our hill in the snow.

Living in the moment watching my sweet son take a nap on the floor after making cake pops all day one Saturday. Obviously next week I will be working more on making my own happiness, being more crafty, and staying positive. So thankful for my New Years Check Myself List it has been an eye opener!
