Giggle Fest

Author: Miranda /

Ok so I know I have posted twice today, but I just couldn't help myself from posting another. With Valentine's day almost here and doing the boys' valentines, how could I forget my four legged best friend on Vday? Well I found the cutest toy at Wal Mart when I was picking all the things up for the kids' valentines and I just had to get it for Samson. I don't know how many of you remember the Pet Smart commercial with the toy "bo bo"? Well this is a red version of it and I couldn't resist giving it to Samson today. Now he can be picky on his toys so I wasn't sure if he would like it...well take a look and you tell me.

The second picture is him in action retrieving his bo bo and jumpin up to the couch to get me to throw it

He just made me giggle to see him take to this toy so much. Especially when he looks at you like "what are you laughin at mom?" Hope it put a smile on your face too!

Becoming Fit and Toned

Well to continue with my Becoming Healthy theme from yesterday, I got to thinking that Yoga helps us in many ways but many of us don't have a lot of time to excercise, go to the gym, or even stop and do a full workout video. I am one of those people, there are some days that I need something quick to do to keep me in the routine. Plus i wanted something that can help with my arms. I found this great article that shows 4 simple excercises we can all do and that can start showing results in just a couple of weeks. Check it out here. Small steps is the way to go. If you are like me starting a full fledged workout schedule will tank within a week because it's just hard to stick to. But little things we can do in 10 minutes here and there will be more effective.

I have made it through my first day without diet soda. It wasn't too bad, though I do have to say I was craving it about 8pm last night. I have to say the little packets you can get to flavor your water made a big difference. I also made up a pitcher of one of those juice cocktails and used that to add a bit of flavor as well. The kids even liked that!

My next step will be to start a food journal. That will begin next monday. (I am giving myself this weekend of no guilt) I have seen many articles that say those that keep a food journal loose 2 to 3 times more than those that don't. Wish me luck!

Valentine's Is Upon Us

Author: Miranda /

Well for the kids that is. Yes I mean those valentine's parties at school. Today is JJ's valentine party at preschool, so the good mommy I am I decided to make up these cute little cups with candy and valentines inside for his class. Of course there are only 5 in his class.

Connor's party is tomorrow. I didn't get as creative with his class valentines as there are 20 kids in his class, but I made up these little bags that include a cute valentine pencil, heart shaped sucker, big candy smarties, valentine and a little temporary tatto.

I had so much fun making these, but am at a total loss as to what to do for my hubby. Aside from wrapping myself in a big pink bow...the man is so hard to buy for. I suppose it will come down to making him a supper of his favorite foods and some sort of decadent dessert.

I hope everyone has a great valentines day! making sure you show the one's you love how much you really do appreciate them.
