Guys, I have a total weakness for baked goods. Mmm. It’s partially a “comfort” thing because I grew up baking with my mom and sisters. It makes me happy!  My 3 year old already bakes with me all the time. We try to balance making healthier dishes with treats like this though.  He’s not even a big cinnamon roll eater- he just wants the icing and sugar haha

I know I just posted a recipe here the other day but I had to get this recipe up in time for Mother’s Day because there is no treat I’d want more than this one!

I’m a bit obsessive when it comes to packing for trips. I don’t know why… I’m not usually a very organized person but there’s something about traveling that brings it out in me, I guess!  I’ll pack a week early, plan out outfits, buy travel sized items etc  So when my husband and I decided we were going to drive to North Carolina (from WA State), I started planning it out right away!

I asked you guys if you wanted me to share this recipe on  my blog despite it not being the most “nutritious” and you said YES so here you go!

These are not a nutritionally dense muffin so if that’s what you’re looking for, keep looking. haha These are definitely more an indulgent, impress your friends muffin that no one will be able to resist!

This little ray on sunshine has been with us for over two months now! It actually feels weird to say that because already life before her seems FOREVER ago! It’s as if she has always been with us. I think because she fits into our family so perfectly!  I was nervous about going from one to two children and don’t get me wrong it is very hard at times but overall I love it! And yes,

It has been a while since I shared a recipe here! Beckett and I love to bake together and cookies are always a favourite. Oddly, he really prefers the dough over the actual cookie… but hey, more cookies for me!  This particular recipe is great because it’s packed with more nutrients (and you can easily make it gluten free!). It’s a pretty forgiving recipe… which is important when you’re cooking with a kid because your measuring will never be exact!

I’ve put together this list of post natal exercises so that you can workout in a safe but effective way after having a baby!  It can be time consuming to scroll through YouTube or Google search for workouts so I’ve done the work for you!

I purchased this program from Good for the Swole and will be starting it… today! I think it’s a great intro back into exercise after having a baby.

I’ve been a mom of two for one month now!

I’ll admit I was nervous about going from one child to two. Everyone says it’s a tough transition! And, well, they’re right. Haha But I had thought it’d be the newborn that felt like more work but really, for us, it’s not! Finnley is a pretty chill baby. She sleeps well (as long as she’s with someone) and only cries or fusses to be held/fed/changed.

The first few months (or longer!) can be an awkward time style-wise.  You’re so excited to wear “regular clothes” again but your body looks drastically different. A lot of your clothes probably don’t even fit! But I am a firm believer in dressing for the body you have not the body you want. What I mean is, wear clothes that fit and make you feel awesome NOW! Don’t wait. Trust me, you will be so much happier if you have clothes you feel good in even if your body isn’t as the weight or size that you want it to be at.

Fall and Winter are my favourite months to diffuse essential oils! Below I’m sharing some of my favourite blends that you can diffuse and have your home smell like Fall. Great thing about essential oils is not only do you get amazing scents but you also get the health benefits!

Of course, not all oils are safe for everyone!  I have made a point to note which blends are not safe for certain people/ages.

I’m back again with another Fall oatmeal recipe! If you missed the last one, you can find it here.  This time we’re focusing on… pumpkin!  Duh!  Everyone loves pumpkin this time of the year, right?

 

Let’s take a look at the ingredients…

Oats:
Oats are low calorie yet filling!  They are high in both fiber and protein.  They help stable blood sugar levels thanks to their high levels of magnesium.
