Fitspiration- Balsamic Vinegar

Do you know how you often hear women say that when their husband is sick it’s like having another child to take care of? Well, it is totally the opposite in our house. If Mike is sick it often will take me all day to realize it. Me on the other hand, well let’s just say he definitely knows it when I’m not feeling well.

Budsies – Personalized Gifts

Budsies​ was able to transform one of our favorite drawings into a plush toy that we can love and cherish forever.

 

The peacock drawing has always made us smile and it is bringing even bigger smiles now.

I love how they transformed the details from my daughter’s drawing she drew her daddy 3 years ago into a sentimental gift we can all love. The large smile and bright colors were a perfect match. The plush is so soft and cozy you will love hugging your one-of-a-kind creation over and over, again.

Healthy Pizza Crusts

Think back to when you were a kid. What did Friday night mean to you? In my house it meant PIZZA NIGHT! I can remember playing at friend’s houses after school, my mom coming to pick us up, and stopping on the way home to pick up a pizza and garlic knots from our favorite pizza place.

Pizza is one of those comfort foods that is hard to beat. Hot, cheesy, and with all of your favorite toppings, what more could you ask for? Well, maybe you could ask for a healthier crust. And that’s what I have for your here today! Two of my favorite healthy pizza recipes so you can have your cake (or in this case, pizza) and eat it too!
