Summer Bucket List *2015*

 Summer is in full swing, well, it's not summer till a few more weeks, but girls are out of school, it's hot as heck outside and we have been going to the library almost everyday, that means it's summer for us!!

Each year I plan a few things for us to do but I have never written a summer bucket list! I saw a vlogger friend of mine make a video sharing what their list was so I figured this would be a fun idea for me to sit with the girls and get them excited about summer to.... watch our video here!

We are going to be making and decorating a big poster with our list that way we can check off after we've done them and to just have fun wasting glue and playing with glitter, lol Be sure to follow us on Instagram to see the photo!

WHAT'S ON YOUR SUMMER BUCKET LIST this summer?! Please comment down below. If you have any ideas or fun things that you think we should add to our list, let us know!

But what I'm most excited about is not having to wake up at the crack of dawn!! lol

#MomFail, No School!

You know we've all had those days, where your mind is just all over the place. It totally sucks that our Mom minds work differently than Dads! We need to make sure that we have all we need and all dad does is make sure everyone is out of the house in five minutes. And I always have everything we need and dragging it to the van, with no help! Sometimes it catches up with us....

A few months ago it happened! And that wasn't the first or the last.

So the week before we had got our parent newsletter and was also was reminded when we picked up Eliada from school that there was no school on Monday, we remembered all weekend also, excited that it would be a 3-day weekend for her.

Well, Monday came, I got up, did Eliadas hair and got dressed. Yvette, our oldest gets a ride from my mom because she works right across the street and they did have school. So she was gone and then I left with Eliada a few minutes later. We had the radio up and singing. We talked about what the week held for us and such. We had totally forgot that there was no school.

It hit me right when we turned the intersection! There were no cars in front, where the teachers park. And I yelled, literally, "Eliada!! You have no school today!" We drove to the pick-up/drop-off area and there was a line of cars. The gate doesn't open till 7:15 and we were a bit early. I drove up to the cars, rolled down my window and said, "There's no school today. We just remembered!" The look on their faces, it was the same as mine when I remembered. #MOMFAIL!

It was a gloomy day and I had scheduled a walk/run date with a friend of mine. So I brought her along. It was on the chilly side and Eliada didn't have a jacket, but I did have my mai tai carrier, so on my back she went. We did two miles, boy was it a workout!

So, my mom fail wasn't that horrible. We spent the rest of the day together till we had to pick up Yvette from school.

Check out my weekly vlog to laugh at me more, lol! Tell me I'm not the only one!

Taking the plunge.....

My resolution, one of my resolutions for this month was to try new things and to put myself out there. And I am soooo terrified to do the next one. I'm trying to do a new thing each month and I decided to continue and go deeper into the GARDENING!!

If you follow me, you would probably think I know alot about GARDENING, and probably have my own GARDEN, but I am so intimidated by GARDENING!

Eliada, she is now 6, has been very interested in Gardening for the past year or so. For her birthday we had a GARDEN party and asked family and friends to gift her HOME DEPOT Gift cards and it turned out great. She is the reason why we're finally continuing our GARDEN journey!

If you follow my Youtube channel, last year I talked about our Compost, we have been composing for over a year, so that has been ready for a while now...

Hubby is just finishing making the raised-garden beds and we used her Gift cards up and bought seeds. I know, I know what you are thinking, WHY SEEDS?! I don't what I was thinking... I was thinking that Eliada loves seeds so she would love to see them grow from seeds, but I may buy some Okra and tomatoes that are already started.

If only....

This past Saturday I hosted the March Against Monsanto march in a city near me and almost everyone that joined in with my family and I said the exact same thing... they wish there were more people here, aware and just plain educated. Educated in the fact that over 80% of our food is genetically modified!

Please help share the word about GMO's. Yes, lot of people and the government say that they are safe, but in fact they are "generally recognized as safe" or GRAS! Does that mean safe? No! It does not!

Anyways, I am not a scientist, doctor or expert on the subject, but I do believe that Monsanto is evil and that we should have the right to choose. So I'd like for ya'll to share this post and/or the vlog that I made the day of the March so that people can see. Also check the links below the video to learn more about GMO's!

What's easier? Menu Plan Monday - 5/18

I was thinking about writing this blog post saying that I wouldn't be blogging so much because I've been vlogging more because it as easier. But it's NOT EASIER! lol But, go check out the recent uploads, they are pretty adorable.

Today I was on my phone writing the shopping list for this week and I was like, why am I not blogging this instead? We have been cooking at home a lot more lately because we are trying to pay down more of the little debt we have, so that means no eating out. To begin with we don't even eat out that much so it shouldn't be that hard for us.

So here' the lits off my phone:

Breakfast: Oatmeal, cereal, omelet, pancake, YUMM!

Lunch: Leftovers, soup or sandwhiches

Monday - Baked Chicken Wings with roasted Broccoli and Couscous
Tuesday - Taco Tuesday
Wednesday - Crock-pot Meal
Thursday - Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Tomato Soup
Friday - Homemade Pizza and Wings

Grocery List: Tomato, Milk, Eggs, Spinach and Apples for snack time!
