OUR HOMESCHOOL STORY

Our homeschool journey began back in March 2017. What started out as a temporary solution has turned into a permanent choice & we are very excited for the future. Here we go; Sometime mid 2016 we found out my father in law was battling what was now his second round of cancer. If you’ve witnessed a loved one fight the good fight against this monster then you can probably visualize what that was like. He was given the option to go for round 2 of radiation along with chemo as he was beyond operating at this point, which he refused. View Post

COLORFUL DINOSAUR BIRTHDAY PARTY

Anthony’s dinosaur birthday party was quaint but oh so cute! Don’t get stuck on dark colors when it comes to common celebration theme such as a prehistoric one, add color & fun elements to take it from drab to modern in an instant. Back when I was a party planner, I worked with all types of crazy budgets…I did $14k birthday parties for toddlers and I also worked with tiny budgets like this one, at only $250 for decorations. If you’ve got the money to spend then great! go for it I say, but if you don’t, like the rest of us…budgeting is a very common notion.

Happy Valentine’s Day y’all! This Valentine’s Day photo backdrop and photo frame were made possible thanks to my left over crafting bin. All items are from the dollar store by the way and collected in the course of about 2 years from previous crafts. I decided to use everything Valentine’s Day related today in stead of tossing it,

The actual backdrop was created using various heart shaped doilies taped to the wall.

TURMERIC GOLDEN MILK AND ITS BENEFITS

Turmeric “golden milk” Tea is a very flavorful little drink that I have come to LOVE, so much so, that I try to drink it every night right before bedtime. It helps me wind down from my hectic days with its sweet aroma & frothy taste. This drink is the perfect “subtle” way to start incorporating healthier and beneficial alternatives to our lives if we are looking to make healthier choices with what we put in our bodies.  I first learned about this drink from an Ayurveda website I came across a long time ago, unfortunately I don’t remember the site’s address but after learning about it I did a lot more research on it and I was amazed at what I found.

Turmeric has SO many benefits it’s crazy! Turmeric contains a wide range of antioxidants, antivirals, antibacterial, anticarcinogenic, antimutagenic, and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also loaded with many other health nutrients such as protein, dietary fiber, niacin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, zinc among many others. For these reasons, it’s been a go to drink for centuries in South Asia in aiding with improving arthritis, cancer prevention, maintaining a healthy liver, blood purifier, aiding in diabetes control and weight management to name a few. This little drink is very well deserving of its nickname “Liquid Gold”.  View Post
