Beetology Cocktails and Mocktails

“BEET” THE HEAT WITH HEALTHY, REFRESHING SUMMER COOLERS  

Delicious, Organic, Cold-Pressed Beet Juice

I usually don’t like the taste of beets and I was excited to try these cold and refreshing drinks with the main ingredient of beet which contains so many essential nutrients to change my view on the vegetable I don’t care for in flavor but, love the health benefits of. Well, there are two flavors that anyone who does not like beets will love. The two flavors I suggest are: Beet + Berry and Beet + Veggie. I highly recommend trying them and giving the whole line of Beetology a try. These beverages turned a non-beet lover into someone who likes to drink the beet juice in the Beetology convenient grab and go bottles regularly. In the article below there are great recipes for mocktails and cocktails that will be great to have at your next friends and family gathering thanks to our friends at Beetology.

Great Papa Turns 90!

Our lives from birth are filled with those around us who influence us, love us, and help raise us. The people who inspire us can be any age and can hold a special place in our hearts. 

I feel grandparents and great grandparents have very significant roles in children’s lives. It is a love that can be indescribable at times. Children look to their grandparents for not only love, but for wisdom and confidence to be themselves. I was very blessed to of known my grandparents but, I lost them at a young age. I have very fond memories of them and cherish those memories very much. I am sad that my girls have never met my grandparents because they would of loved them but, they are blessed to have two sets of amazing grandparents and two amazing sets of great grandparents on my husband’s side. Their grandparents and great grandparents cherish them and the feeling is very mutual. I see their excitement when I mention any of their names and it warms my heart. Everyone teases I take so many pictures and I do this so that our family can look back and enjoy the moments we have spent together.

Fill up your Water Balloons with a Dollar Store Water Shooter

It is Summer and my family loves a good water balloon fight.

Happy Kids (and adults) in the summer = Water Balloons

It is such a fun way to stay cool and keeps everyone moving. We were having so much fun with our water balloons and we used up all of our Bunch O Balloons. (insert- Super Sad face here LOL)

I can not imagine filling water balloons the way we used to when we were kids. Standing in front of the kitchen sink and filling them one by one. It took so much time to fill them all up and I remember getting water EVERYWHERE as you pulled the end of the water balloon off the faucet. Bunch O Balloons is Absolutely Genius and saves so much time! As a parent I am so happy that this is the way we can fill water balloons for our kids in the summer time. Summer Parties have gotten so much easier because of this amazing toy/ product.

Chalk Drawing Photos

During the Summer we always try to find fun things to do with the kids that don’t cost a lot of money and create fun memories.

This activity was so much fun and we loved looking at the photos after we drew the chalk art and posed with the chalk creations. What will you draw?

I suggest doing it in the morning or later in the day when the pavement is not so hot.

We completed our own Summer Inspired Chalk Photos. See them in the post below:

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.

As a mom though, whether or not you’re feeling well there are too many things and too many people to take care of to just spend the day in bed or on the couch. Instead we get dressed, down some vitamin C, and do what we need to do as best we can (and hopefully find a little time to rest on the couch).
