Shine, Shine, Go Away!!!

5ed19fc65b990124d5f027764fdf8295I recently received my Paradise Vox Box from Influenster and absolutely have fallen in love with the Olay Fresh Effects facial cleanser that was sent to me to try. I have naturally oily skin and since using this product for the past two weeks my skin is less shiny, oily and has dramatically cleared up.

 

I also love the way it smells and how it feels on my skin. Also, I have to add that it doesn’t leave my face feeling dried out like other cleansers that I have tried. I can’t recommend this product enough if you have oily skin. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! If you would like to find out how you can join Influenster, feel free to email me and I will send you an invitation.

Ok I’m not proud of cheating but who has time to make dessert from scratch in a minutes notice? I recently seen an episode of The Pioneer Woman where she makes her family Flat Apple Pie and boy did it look delicious.

Well in the midst of cooking dinner I got the biggest craving for some so I used what I had.

Put desired amount of pie filling in the middle then fold in ends. Bake at 400· for 35 minutes.

These were so good that I completely spaced out taking pictured before we chowed down!!! We ate these warm with vanilla ice cream and it was a huge hit. I have a feeling I’ll be making this often. ♡♥♡

A Dream of A Dream…

Breastfeeding symbol

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been thinking about and researching school so much lately that now I’m dreaming about it! I hate that it just feels like I’ll never be able to get to that point. Money is tight right now and we have a lot in the works as far as family affairs go, so school will be put off until after taxes BUT it’s official. I’ve made up my mind and am going to be going to school to become a Breastfeeding Specialist! I’m so excited, breastfeeding is something I am so passionate about and that I love advocating for. What also makes my heart so unbelievably happy about this is that I have my husbands 100% support in my decision. I feel bad for saying this but being a SAHM was never really my dream. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely LOVE my babies, but being able to monetarily help my family out makes me feel better. Seeing my husband work as hard as he does and be in physical pain kills me, being able to take some of that stress and responsibility from him makes me so happy. Perhaps I’m being a little selfish…
