Easy Weeknight Kid Friendly Dinner

Marcus and I are trying daily to choose healthier options when it comes to our meals. And while that’s great for us, unfortunately our kids aren’t exactly on the same wave length. Maybe one day... so when mom and dad are having salads for dinner I whip up these quick little pizzas using nan bread I picked up at Costco. Ingredients Nan BreadMarinara or Pizza SauceMozzarella Cheese Preheat your oven to 350 Take your nan bread and spread a small amount of marinara sauce on each one. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Put in the oven for 12 minutes. And you’re done! *BOOM* No you don’t need two pans... I forgot one was in there when I heated the oven so I just stacked them. HAPPY EATING!

The weekend is here and like every morning I am scrambling, trying to decide what to make for breakfast. The husband suggested donuts... that would require I leave the house. And truth...

Totally made it up. ;) Let’s get to it! You will need; 1. 1 can cinnamon rolls 2. Non-stick cooking spray 3. Sprinkles 4. Assorted berries 5. Waffle Maker   Directions; Preheat your waffle maker Spray with non-stick spray Place one cinnamon roll per waffle square and press down. Let cook Remove from waffle maker once cooked, top with frosting and decorate! Repeat and devour! DELISH!

My Roots are Showing

Eek! It’s happening my roots are officially becoming a problem. With all the salons still closed and the probability that my next appointment will be cancelled it looks like I will be showing them off for a while longer. I know my hair looks blonde but the cat is out of the bag... I’m a natural brunette, my natural root is extremely dark. Luckily for me, my hairstylist is amazing and typically does a shadow root on my hair to make any future growth less noticeable. My all-time favorite product to help hide my roots is the DryBar detox dry shampoo. Check out the video below for a full break down and tutorial.

Sunflower Picking

There’s something about a sunflower that can instantly brighten someone’s day. Insert an entire field and you’ve got pure bliss! I am loving the fact that so many local business are rolling with whatever quarantine is throwing at them rather than rolling over and folding. When Hunsaders Farms announced that they were opening their sunflower fields to the public (safely and in full compliance of social distancing of course) I knew I just had to go! So once Ryann finished her last Zoom call for the day, we were off! The first thing we saw when we arrived, besides the sunflowers of course were BUFFALO! Y’all, they had buffalo roaming in a field right behind the sunflowers. How awesome is that!? They have slides made of farm tubing built into the hill that Levi and

Rye Preserve

School is out and so is all structure for the foreseeable future. Today we were invited by a few friends to explore a place we have never visited, a hidden treasure in our own Florida backyard. The Rye Preserve. Located right off of Rye Road in Manatee County it is about 15 minutes off the interstate with easy access. Upon our arrival I was instantly taken back by the lush trail. We followed the Red Trail back for about a 4 minute walk. To the right it starts to open up and with a slight climb down you enter the motherland! I was immediately transported to a West Virginia mountain creek in my mind. Kennedy loved splashing in the water and Levi loved catching the tadpoles. The creek itself has tons to explore. You can chose to go up stream, or if you go down stream it o...
