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!

GCDC in the RGV + Giveaway

Next weekend! I think I'm too excited, lol. I have been cloth diapering for all these five years. The first year, I didn't participate, second year I participated online with Dearest Diapers. Third year I was pregnant and Eliada was out of diapers! The fourth year I took Annaleah and we drove up to Corpus to participate and now this year I am helping host one in the RGV!! It took a new mom from outside of the valley to push everything into gear, glad she did.

Here's a video from 2012 (no recent videos) and I can't believe I don't have my video up on my channel, I might, I just can't find it! lol I know I vlogged when I went to Corpus last year. Here is my blog post from last year with some pics... GCDC 2014.

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.

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)!
