If you are what you eat, I’m a mix of 80% real, whole food, 20% baked goods. 🤷🏼♀️ To get in more veggies I started incorporating smoothies into our daily lineup after my second baby was born. This combo is an adaption from @_kimberlysnyder s book The Beauty Detox Solution. I credit this #glowinggreensmoothie for helping us keep the winter flu at bay and balancing out the effects of sugar cookies. And also I’m just glowing more than ever so maybe it’s the smoothie? #humble Glowing Green Smoothie: Blend 1 1/2 cup water, juice of half a lemon, pear, apple, banana, loads of spinach, 2-4 celery stalks and ice. Tip: don’t skip the ice and use ripe fruit. 🍏 🍐 🍌 🍋 🍃 💧 Thanks to my bff @waileone for gifting me the book! #thebeautydetoxsolution #smoothie #flu #detox #glowinggreensmoothie #healthyfood #healthykids #guthealth #snack #bbgmoms #bbgmums #bbgover30 #fitness #fitfam #postpardum #bodyafterbaby #kimberlysnyder #wholesomeish #kitchenaid
Our little blue house, nuzzled amidst snowy giants... ❄️ We got hooked up with a surprise 6” of snow on our extended holiday weekend! (Thanks God I owe you one) ❄️ The kiddos have been outside sledding for 2 straight days while I watch from inside with my coffee. I’m a selfless mom. #pnw #snow #snowday #childhood #washington #washingtonstate #wa
“Do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another in love”. The girls and I spent Valentines Day out delivering treats to our teachers, bus drivers, widows, family and friends as part of the Great Kindness Challenge. We came home with hearts fuller than we left with ❤️ #gal5:13 #greatkindnesschallenge #valentinesday #love #serveothers #randomactsofkindness
Exercise is good for the body and mind 💛❤️💜, flowers are good for the soul. Happy Valentines Day ya’ll
Real food is the prettiest food 😍
He has provided for us everything we need in this life and the life to come. Do you want more? It’s Saturday, get up and get it 😁
Wholesale sister love ❤️ and this wasn’t a random moment. It’s everyday, all day. Elise loves her baby Clara with such unhindered affection that I often have to rein it in. You know, cause sometimes Clara literally can’t breath. 🤣🤭
In the heat of summer this dock is loaded with boating families and loaded coolers. Today it’s just cold, serene and magical. No biggie.
I miss my beloved baked goods of Christmas past. They were always there for me when I needed them, you know? These are Kodiak Power cake muffins with 6 grams of protein each. Sounds impressive, right? I tried a new recipe from @kodiakcakes and put these in the freezer for the husband and kids lunches. What you can expect: Easy. Also there for you. Fast. Healthier than Christmas goods. Ingredients: power cakes mix, milk (I used almond), egg, bananas (the uglier the better), cinnamon, butter (or substitute apple sauce for lower fat), brown sugar. That’s all! The mix uses 100% whole grain wheat flour and oat flour, is non GMO and preservative free. Plus, you can use cool words like “kodiak” and”power”. Try em out and let me know what you think👍🏼💪🏼🍌 ps: not an ad. As if.
Small towns and hot cocoa go together like little girls in puffy coats. This little puffer is in search of her own cup 🍫🥛
Oreo cookie sheep? Yes sir, yes sir, three mouths full. To make 1) Slather vanilla Oreos with a white frosting of your choice. Then eat about 3 before continuing. 2) Top frosted cookies with mini marshmallows, saving a space to put the little sheeps head. Eat an Oreo. 3) Roll 1 tsp size chunks of prepared brownie into small ovals for sheep heads. Eat some brownies 4) Place edible candy eyes on brownie heads, using frosting as your glue. I did 2 eyes per sheep, but feel free to get wild and really freak the kids out with 1 or 3 eyes. 5) Finally, enjoy a cookie, you deserve it. Baaa
It snowed! These snowy Christmas tree brownie bites go down easier than real trees. All you need is - a pan of brownies - a small circular cookie cutter (or something like it) - green cupcake wrappers - tooth picks - powdered sugar. Make your pan of brownies and once cooled cut out small circular bites. Fold your cupcake wrappers in half, then roll them up and slide a toothpick up inside your “tree”. Top each brownie bite with your cupcake tree. Dust the whole batch with powdered sugar. Viola, an edible winter forest. #brownies #browniebites #kidfood #preschool #dessert #christmas #christmastree #wholesomeish #funfood
On the night of our dear Saviors birth, we dined and then a small Christmas miracle happened...it snowed! ❄️❄️❄️ There is nothing, nothing, like snow on Christmas Eve ☃️
Currently: hiding in master closet wrapping presents for Monkey, Boss Baby and Pretty Girl. Also currently: three small children play untended in the house somewhere, most likely 1) starting small fires. 2) cutting one another’s hair, but only the bangs and as short as they can go. 3) quietly reading the Bible and singing church hymns. Mhh, yep it’s definitely one of those things #christmas #giftideas #giftwrapping #gifttags #plaid #ribbon #momlife #threekids
