No cream – cream of veggie soup

Hi ya’all!

Sorry I have been MIA but I took some much needed time to regroup. While it has been a crazy couple of weeks, I had to jump on here really quick and share my all time favorite soup recipe with all of you. It is kid friendly and can be dressed up for the adults as well. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Have a great week and stay warm my friends.

Take your date to the next level – Vol II

Escape rooms have been all the rage lately. My social media is filled with tags and photos of family and friends enjoying this new craze. So Alen and I had to jump at the chance to explore one on our own.

Escape Strategy in Aurora, IL.

Nothing says date night like being locked in a room with your significant other for 60 minutes. Right?! If you can survive this, you can survive anything hahaha. But really this was an enormous amount of fun and it makes you want to go back again and again.

Take your date to the next level – Vol I

When you think of a date with your significant other, you automatically think dinner or movies. Correct?

Most of us do.

While I think dinner dates are great and fun, they get boring and old really fast. So I truly appreciate it when we plan things that are different.

For the past couple of months, Alen and I have been on a mission to take our dates to the next level and so we did. Starting with Couples Massages!

How can you give back this holiday season?!

#GivingTuesday isn’t until November 27th but you do not need to wait for a specific day to do something nice for someone.

I personally love to do random little things in the community to spread kindness and give back. As someone with an entrepreneurial spirit, I really appreciate the medium and try my hardest to support mom entrepreneurs and small businesses in general.

As soon as I see a friend or a neighbor start a new adventure, I will buy it – share it – support it in any way that I can. It means a lot to them and to me. Even if it isn’t always reciprocated, I will try! Why?! Because I refuse to change who I am because of a select few. So now I encourage YOU to do something nice for a friend – even a stranger and come back here to tell me what you did!

Mommy meltdown!

Have you ever felt like something wasn’t right? Deep down inside you had a feeling like something was off. Your mind, body and soul were just not in sync?!

Your head was spinning and more then usual. You were forgetting simple tasks and even groceries at the store. And I mean, you paid for hot dogs but left the bag at the register, type of forgetting.

Well that was me. For the past couple of weeks. Something was not right.

I felt tired but I wasn’t.

I felt sick but not really.

Until…. Read More
