    I love to ride my bicycle

    It is so hard to resist salt and vinegar chips! So I don’t! I really don’t deny myself anything. If I want it, I eat it. I usually will try to mind the portion but there are definitely times that I throw caution to the wind and just eat my way through a row of Oreo cookies. I have found though, that the more I concentrate on eating healthy, the more “slip ups” I have. Those Oreos are so much more tempting when I tell myself I absolutely cannot eat them. What I try to do, is just keep a bunch of healthy options in the house and avoid buying…

    Brrr! Let’s craft!

    This winter has been awesome so far. Not only have the temperatures been tolerable but the snow has been great for sledding and the roads have been pretty dry and safe. That being said, my kids don’t like to stay outside for very long play sessions even on the warmest of days. Enter craft time. Today we broke into something I purchased well before Christmas but never found the right time to play with it – Crayola Air Dry Clay (<– That’s an affiliate link. See my note about what that means on my “About Our Days” page). When I bought it, Amazon was running a sale so I actually got it for…

    Merry Christmas Everyone!

    Well, I guess its Christmas time now! My kids have already read and reread the Toys R Us and Target toy catalogs, circling everything they have ever wanted. They also circled a lot of stuff that they don’t even know what it is. They are 2 and 4. The struggle is real. Kids are so funny with toys. It is always so much fun going down the toy isles with them at the store. They get SO excited about everything. You just can’t replicate that amount of joy. They seriously look like they are about to explode with all the possibilities that toy isle holds. Getting them to leave that…

    Soup season is in full effect folks! With all the soup recipes floating around on Pinterest, you’d think I’d be able to find some good options. Is it possible to make a low sodium soup? While salt is delicious and makes things, such as soup, super yummy I am pretty sensitive to it and kind of enjoy my healthy heart and blood pressure… So I will throw this question out to you. What soups are EASY, cheap and low in sodium that actually taste good? Thank you in advance for your ideas! Speaking of health- I am so excited for Halloween! We all have our costumes and fun hair sprays…

    I murdered my abs today…

    Side note- I don’t think I’ll share these workout posts every time as that would get annoying.. SO sign up for the emails using the spiffy little email thing to the right of your screen. At this point, I think it only works on my desktop site. So go there! It’s prettier than the mobile version anyway! On with the post! I’m really going to feel todays workout tomorrow! I’m not really sure why I’m straying from the Blogilates calendar so much right now. Cassey puts together really organized workout plans every month and I usually love them. For whatever reason, I’ve been into creating my own thing right now.…

    A new addition to the blog! Join me!

    So this “Gettin’ Healthy” category is new to my blog. I have briefly mentioned different workouts that I have been doing in previous posts. Blogilates has been mentioned a few times and I told you all that I was doing the Couch to 5k program a while back. I get a lot of questions about that stuff so I thought I’d make a little category here to share with you what I’m doing. That way, you can join me in my journey! Now to preface this… I’m not perfect and definitely get lazy sometimes and skip workouts. This is a no judgment zone! Also, maybe you have something that you do…

    It’s HOT! Cool down with these fun activities.

    This week is supposed to continue to be hot hot hot! It’s probably going to be some of the last hot days we have left this year so I figure we should take advantage. I did some Pinteresting, and found some really great ideas to keep our kids busy and cool while they play outside. These are all activities that use items you most likely already have around the house. If not, the dollar store probably has whatever you need for cheap. Freeze Dough – This is a great craft that uses shave cream and your very own freezer. Lego Excavation – Super fun for the lego lover. They have to melt…

    My Husband is my Hero and here’s why..

    A typical day in the Day house is never typical. It is always different, always challenging, always precious. Everyone (i.e. anyone over 50 who sees you shopping with your kids at Target struggling to get all your groceries and contain your toddler at the same time..) talks about soaking up your children’s youth while it’s here. As if we parents are so caught up in our lives that we don’t see it. We do. Trust me, we see how incredible our daughter is with her wild imagination and goofy sense of humor. We see how sweet and loving our little boy is. We appreciate and cherish every moment. Even the…

    Our great adventure!

    Oh my god! We’re a real family. Like a real, grown up, family. We do things like go on vacations to great up northy places and go sight seeing. When. Did. This. Happen…. Seriously, when did we turn into a real legit family?! Up until this point, we’ve been pretty focused on having babies and feeding, clothing, changing diapers of said babies. Now we’re doing stuff as a family. We have two kids who function in this world with enough competence for us to be able to go to a place like Tahquamenon Falls and a BEAR zoo without it being a stressful experience. So crazy. Just, so crazy. We…
