Happy New Year 2015


It has taken me a few days to write this post... so far 2015 has been a sick one for myself.   I was at the doctors getting checked for strep which was negative but I swear it was the worst sore throat I have ever experienced.   The doctor did notice the inflammation in my neck and throat so he did give me a steroid.   The steroid though makes people more susceptible to infections which caused an eye infection.  

I am better now but it sure was the longest week ever!   

I will admit I did not stay up till midnight to bring the new year in, I again watched the ball drop at 11 pm my time then went to bed.   I kissed my daughter as my new years kiss which I do believe made my hubby a little jealous.  ;)

January 1st started us on our journey in the Daniel Plan which is different than the Daniel Fast... confused us at first so right now we are doing a fast for a couple days.   The Daniel plan had us cut out dairy, gluten, sugar, and all nasty processed stuff but we have removed meat so pretty much just eating fruit and veggies for a few days.  I sure do miss eating cheese and chocolate.  

Back to the New year...   I had the opportunity to co-preach the first Sunday of the new year!   We discussed setting some goals and focused on looking at a few role models in the Bible.   I also took some time this first week of school and talked about goals and resolutions with my students and my Sunday School kids!   I know many people never set any goals but I still think taking the time to reflect and set goals is important.   Even more important when you take the time with Jesus to really dig in and seek Him for guidance and direction. 

So have you taken some time to refocus on what is important?  

My word for the year is organization and intentional.   I want to obviously get more organized at home and school but I also want to be more intentional with my time.   Learn to balance it better and get rid of the stuff that takes time away that is not important.

Another area of focus is food-  I want to constantly remind myself to be aware of what I am putting in my body.  

Here is 2015-  It's going to be a great year!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
