Adelle Hello I Can’t Stop

I have to write about my Adele crush.  It wasn’t until I purchased her 21 Album that I really payed attention and immediately fell in love.  Seriously just listen to her and Hello {pardon the pun} look at her, she is BEAUTIFUL! We all have some favorites from that album … Rumor Has It Rolling In The Deep Set Fire To The Rain Someone Like You Turning Tables – {live acoustic} When was it about two weeks ago?  The newest 25 was released and OMG, worth the wait.  Wow and wow Adele, you have done it again.  You have managed to grab hold of my soul and have time just stop while I listen and hold on to each and every note.  Goosebumps up and down my arms and tears to my eyes.  Bravo my favorite female voice {okay a close run with Stevie Nicks}, I spent the entire 5th…  Read More…

Thanksgiving Shopping

When the 5:00 a.m. news came on {I am up that early making coffee for husband} and it said we were expecting “storm like weather to hit around 9:00 a.m., my head started going into game plan mode.  It was the Tuesday before Thanksgiving {early morning} and I knew I had some shopping to finish up at the market.  I didn’t really put any stress on myself this year since we already had the “big bird” resting safely in my mother’s refrigerator.  The rest of the list would be pretty easy and most of it consisted of fresh food and produce {packages and boxes don’t really work at my Thanksgiving meals}.  That being said, I wanted to wait as late as possible to pick everything up.  My mind had changed with this latest forecast update.  No waiting and putting it off, I would head out this morning and beat the…  Read More…

Napa Valley Turkey Trot 2015

What a wonderful November Saturday morning.  Miss Faith and I headed out to run our third Napa Valley Turkey Trot and as usual, we had a great time.  We started running this event its first year, and we are huge fans of this family 5k.  The Napa Valley College is home of the Turkey Trot and it is a great run.  The course is easy and nice with some incline and a bit of trail {not too much}.  You have the option of doing a 5k run/walk OR a 1 mile walk.  There is food, classic 50’s music {so fun} and entertainment. Last year’s event was a pretty wet and cold one as it just poured down rain.  This year the weather was amazing, the colors all around the Napa Valley are brilliant right now, and the air was just cool enough without feeling like we were going to be…  Read More…

Holiday Shopping Gift Giving Guide

*Disclaimer this post contains affiliate links.  I love being organized and even more so this time of year.  I start shopping early for the holidays and I have a list of ideas for each person I shop for, that way if I can’t find what I want, I have options.  The problem about shopping too early, I tend to hide things and forget where I have put them when it comes time to wrap.   I have many years found gifts that I have purchased months after Christmas in their hiding places.  Nostalgia sets in when heading to some of our favorite shopping areas.  Some of my fondest memories of holiday shopping are when we would head to the large Nordstrom mall area {outdoors} here in California and bring the kids.  They were younger then, so if we were shopping for them, they really didn’t pay much attention, they were too…  Read More…

The Ultimate Coffee Date November

How on earth can it be November already?  I know this is cliche, but as I get older the time really does go by faster.  I really notice it with the kids.  They are growing up and I have been finding myself wanting to turn the clock back.  I have digressed, let me get back to the start … Happy Saturday and welcome to another #UltimateCoffeeDate with myself and co-hosts Deborah and Coco.  I love stopping each month and taking a long weekend to go over your links and comments.  It is a nice way to slow down and re-group, re-connect or connect with new bloggers. ♥ If we were having coffee, I would chat on  about how my kids are growing too fast.  I know, they have to and I am so super proud of all of them.  I just want to stop and slow down.  Is it because…  Read More…

Hemp Hearts by Manitoba Harvest

*Disclosure, I received product from Manitoba Harvest via my affiliation with Fit Approach.  As always, my thoughts are my own. Every once in a while I will toss a bag of Manitoba Hemp Hearts or a container of Manitoba Hemp Protein Powder into my grocery cart.  I love Manitoba products.  Did you know that they are the worlds largest hemp food manufacturer and they make and sell their own line of hemp foods? What is Hemp?  Well the fast easy answer is this … A super plant. At the top part of the hemp plant you will find the hard hemp seed. This small seed “seeds” nutritiously delicious products like Hemp Hearts, hemp protein powder, and hemp oil.  Hemp foods taste great! Hemp foods have a slightly nutty taste that complements any dish.  Read more about Hemp here.

Peanut Butter Protein Banana Waffles

*Disclosure, I was compensated and given product for my recipe and review of Mighty Nut through my affiliation with Fit Approach.  Recipe is my own and opinion. Making breakfast for the kids each morning is something I really make a point of doing.  I want to send them out the door ready for the day ahead and we have all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Trying to get creative is the hard part, but the kids love pancakes or waffles as their favorite morning meal.  I am always looking to keep the ingredients good and healthy for all the meals and at times {many times}, I “sneak” the goods into their food. I can now add some extra good to their waffles or pancakes with Mighty Nut powered peanut butter.  This is awesome, I love using powdered peanut butter in smoothies, shakes, making dips…  Read More…
