Frugalista Friday Collab *Video*

Happy Friday!! I have a craft video up on my channel! Yeah, I love to do crafts with my girls but rarely get the chance to film it, although the girls did not help me make this one, I'm going to record their reaction, because it's hanging in their room!! Plus, if I recorded it, it would be quite loud.

So Christina, a #YTMM vlogger, her channel is linked in the description box, has Frugalista Friday every now and then and invited a few other moms to join in the fun and gave us a $5 Easter Challenge for this week! CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

Check out the video to see what I made as well as all the other ladies, there is a playlist to make it super easy to watch everyone's crafty-ness showcased for this challenge! ENJOY & HAPPY EASTER!

Since the Beginning of Time!

Since Eliada was born, she's now 6 years old, I have been interested and researching essential oils. I have been saving money to purchase them. I attended several different presentations and events and learned so much and just got so much more excited about purchasing them myself. My husband told me to look on There were some at great prices and I learned that these did not come with diffusers, just like the older kits. But the diffuser, which is filled with water and a few drops of oil to fill a living area, is over $80 itself.

So anyways, I purchased a Young Living Premium Starter Kit and so glad that I have finally dove in. The only oil that I did purchase was from Sprouts and it was lavender. It was what I used for our wipes solution for Annaleah.

I have been using my oils everyday since I got my kit and I feel so much more ALIVE! Seriously. I mean, one of my resolutions was to also take care of myself in 2015 and I have been exercising and eating healthier, we're also starting a garden this year, now that our soil is healthy also!

I just wanted to share with ya'll my excitement! Speaking of excitement and sharing, check out my Youtube Channel, I'll be having my unboxing uploading shortly and I'm also doing a challenge this week, which I hope my oils will help me with!

If you'd like to know what the heck I'm talking about, feel free to send me a message, look around (Catalog) and/or Sign Up and you won't have to pay retail! I know several friends who just buy one or two oils, but seriously, a kit is a way better deal, and ya'll know how I love a great deal!

MPM - Out And About - 2/2/2015

OMG, It's been a great weekend, but I think we ate out at least once every day this weekend. Shame on me/us! Didn't even use any coupons. I've been doing a lot of mystery shopping and contract work latley, so usually I just eat and run or grab something at the drive-thru. But I did take advantage of mommy time as well as cashing in via Ibotta! Check out my weekly vlog on my Youtube Channel: youtube! I also fell behind on household duties. But it's a new week. It's Tuesday and we just got home. So let's dust off and start anew.

Breakfast: Oatmeal, smoothie, scrambled eggs, and eggless pancakes (see recipe below)!

Lunch: Salad, sandwiches and leftovers

Monday: Eating out (Simpre Natural)

Tuesday: Eating out (Panda Expresss)

Wednesday: Sausage Jambalaya with rice

Thursday: Sandwiches

Friday: Eating out??

What I gotta buy this week: Just fruit for snacking.

Linking up with Check it out for loads of other recipes and menus!


So last week we were craving pancakes! So, I was like, YES! I'll make some.... but.... WE HAD NO EGGS! I had already gotten everything ready, turned on the stove, pulled out a pan, and no eggs! Booo! So I said to hubby, "Quick, Google Eggless pancakes!" He found a recipe and read it out to me and they were soooo good! Topped them with butter and syrup. I adjusted and substituted some items, but here's the recipe:

1 to 1 1/4 cup flour
1 tbls baking powder
1 tbls sugar (organic)
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 tbls vegetable oil
2 tbls water

Annaleah was helping me, so we just added everything at the same time ( for simplicity )

Mix together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl
Combine milk, oil and water
Add to dry ingredients , mix until moistened.
Bake on a hot greased griddle
Turn when bubbles burst and bake other side till browned.

TADA!! It's done, add 1 tbls at a time if too thick (ours were perfect)!
Check out last weeks weekly vlog for a sneak peak! 

Sunday in my City - Santa Anna Wildlife Refuge Hike

Ahhh, okay, i'll stop with the photos there. I will have a vlog up on my YouTube Channel this month. So be sure to subscribe to see how much fun we had! The first Sunday of the month at Santa Anna is FREE! So we thought we'd check it out. We hadn't been in a few month. We did a different trail, 2 miles, which felt like 10!

Santa Anna Wildlife Refuge in Alamo, Texas!

The picture with the river is the Rio Grande River.... the other side is another country, MEXICO!

Which is your favorite pic? I couldn't choose, lol

I showed you mine, now show me yours.

Share your city/town/suburb/you name it! Think of this as a photography carnival or photography meme (with or without words) that not only lets you share your part of the world, but lets you visit other parts of the world virtually. If you link up, please link back or post the Sundays In My City button either in your post or sidebar to let people know that other bloggers are sharing their communities too. Happy trails!
