Renovating Our Dining Room - Part One

When we started house hunting, we knew we wanted a home that we could put a little work into to make our own, but we also didn't want to have to put a ton of work into it. We were looking for something that we could slap some paint on the walls, maybe install new flooring, do some landscaping, and be done. Hahahaha! Sure, Jan. Not in this area! People here just don't take very good care of their homes, as we came to discover when we went to look at what seemed like a bazillion of them. Luckily, we finally found one that had potential to be our forever home. And here we finally are, 5 years after purchasing it, starting the first big project.

IQ Jumps Logic Puzzle Board Game

Did I ever tell you about our board game collection? No?! Well, I will have to definitely add that to the list of future blog posts. At any rate, we have a sizable collection because we just love playing games. We are also pretty fond of anything that makes us think. For example, I'm one of those people who love those variety puzzle books and buy them all the time. 

We recently got IQ Jumps to try out, and here's what we thought.

May Degustabox Is Here!

I've been with Degustabox for quite some time and I can honestly say that it's the only package we get regularly that we get super excited for. It's the only subscription box that we have ever got where every single box was a hit. With so much variety, it's hard to get a box where there isn't at least one or two items that you absolutely fall in love with. So check out what came in the most recent box!

Fitting Fuel For Fire Fruit + Protein Into My Morning Routine

On my fitness journey, I have tried pretty much every protein shake I could get my hands on. All of them were gross. Which means I had no desire to bother with getting the extra protein I needed to help build muscle. In addition, I'm a mom. One that's stretched way too thin most days. So I need something to help keep me going and let's be honest, some days I need some a little push to do more than just my workout in the morning because that hour can be draining. So yes, sign me up to try Fuel For Fire Fruit + Protein smoothies!
