One thing I just love about church publications is how simple they make it to do the little things with your littles each and every week. I found this fabulous FHE idea in the July Friend and just had to share with you all. As a busy mama I am super-duper grateful for any quick and easy ideas for family night and this one is simply the tops.
One thing I absolutely LOVE about the cooler weather, is that it makes me want to cook more. I love cooking anyway, but something about standing next to a warm stove with the smells and flavors brewing is extra inviting in the fall seasons.
One tip I’ve learned over the years is that roasting your veggies can really help bring out the flavors and crispiness of each one.
Oh gee golly. Wouldn’t you know it, they went and found a way to put jewelry on rotation and deliver it to my house. I mean, how amazing does that sound. Here you go Kelly, here’s your personalized selection of jewelry for you to wear for the next however many weeks you want and then return or purchase at your leisure.
Heaven help me.

Here’s a little peek into my very first box. I had to use some serious restraint in NOT keeping all of these pieces!
I wrote this post in our challenge group yesterday and I feel that someone else out there needs to hear this too, so please excuse the novel. In the spirit of being open and sharing with you all I find that I have a lot to share this morning . 😊
I climbed into bed around 1am and was met shortly by two of my littles trying to sneak in for some adorable snuggles. About a half hour later I had taken them all potty and they were finally settled back in their beds, so I drifted off to dream land myself.
My alarm goes off at 6am every morning and some mornings, like today, are extra hard to drag myself out of bed for my ‘me’ time. But I’ve been feeling a little down lately and I know that I truly need this time to work on my mind and my body. So I laid in bed for a good 20 minutes and started my reading for today. I really do love The Slight Edge book. It’s such a great reminder that our every day actions and choices really matter and have long term effects.
As many of you know I host 30 day challenge groups called the Beautiful YOU boot camp, each and every month over on Facebook. Centered around learning the skills necessary to get and stay on track with our nutrition, make the most of our time with effective 30 minute workouts & tone up for our very best beautiful bodies!
The entire first week however, is dedicated solely to our minds. Because our minds control our body and the body won’t go where the mind won’t take it. This first week is seriously my fave – and quite honestly I NEED it each and every month. I NEED the reminder to put one foot in front of the other, to do just one small thing each and every day, to get up and try just one more time. I think that sometimes I might make it look a little too easy, so let me be 100% honest with you all right here and right now. There is very little that is easy in this life. Especially fitness and true service. Those two pieces are often the hardest for me, and I recognize that. Which is why I continually choose to focus on those two key pieces in my life. Because, for me, fitness and service make me a healthier, happier and more humble servant of the Lord. And THAT is my ultimate goal. To be the very best mouth piece I can be for my Lord and Savior. And holy moly, it is NOT easy!
Happy Monday everyone! I hope we all had a fabulous day of rest yesterday and are feeling renewed and revived this week.
I’m just pushing play on my fave living room workout and am excited to share my new Rocksbox delivery with you all later today! (Sign up for your first month FREE with code SFFitmomxoxo)
For now, here is Grandma’s tomato sauce, as promissed. Now your Minestrone soup can be as complete and healthy as possible.
Go forth, and rule the day my friends!
If you attended Women’s Confernece this past Saturday I hope you heard the talk by Rosemary M. Wixom. This quote of her’s really stuck out to me, so I hope you don’t mind my sharing:
“There are 2 important days in a woman’s life. The day she is born and the day she finds out why.”
