AWARE: having or showing realization, perception or knowledge
The past week has made me think and reflect; to become AWARE. I was sitting in my MOPS meeting listening to a presentation about self defense. I had no idea what this talk would trigger. There were certain points mentioned that struck me, not in a bad way, but opened my mind to think outside of the box. What are we not aware of?
This particular discussion made me realize there are many aspects of life that we may not think about on a daily basis. We get so busy in the daily grind and overlook important things. I feel aware but I know I need to be more diligent about observing, thinking, reflecting and learning.
I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Rhode Island to visit the Wildtree Home Office and take a “Behind the Bottle” tour. There were about 150 of us who earned this trip for FREE! Wildtree flew us into Providence, paid for our hotel for the weekend, and provided meals and hospitality during our entire stay in the beautiful Ocean State.
This was the first “Girl’s Weekend” I have ever taken in my whole life so I was SUPER excited! There are men in the company but, so far, my team is all women. I learned many interesting facts that I am elated to share with you!
Happy New Year! Welcome to the January Meal Plan! In order to stay organized in January, I have scheduled our meals for the next month. I am excited to share this with you because I know how hard it can be to plan ahead. As a mom that works from home, I understand all the responsibilities and tasks parents take on, regardless of whether we have sufficient time or energy or not. Making healthy meals for your family does not have to be difficult. Let me help!
I have come up with this list of meals. Most are from Wildtree’s awesome meal plans and the others are from an amazing fellow mom blogger. Keep in mind that this is my first time planning meals a month in advance so it may take me a bit to get in the groove. I am posting this meal plan now in case you would like to try the recipes with me in January. Otherwise, you can wait for my final verdict later on and implement this plan in February.
We are less than a week away from Christmas, yet, I do not have all my Christmas shopping done. Why do I do this to myself?! I think the reason holidays are stressful is because we set such high standards for ourselves in gift-giving. My goal is to avoid the big box stores and keep it simple! To me, the perfect gifts are ones that are practical and useful. Skip the outlandishly priced trending items and go for the product that will be used frequently.
