Excited to learn…

I have been certified as a Nutrition and Wellness Consultant for almost four years now. To keep my certification I need to complete 16 Continuing Education Units every two years. Getting and keeps my this certification has been so enjoyable for me. The classes are EVERYTHING that I am interested in and they have fed a passion that developed the summer that I turned 12 years old. Yep, I was only 12 years old when I first found an interest in fitness and nutrition. That’s when I started working out outside of school P.E. classes and started cooking and creating healthy meals in the kitchen. I can thank Richard Simmons for it too! His show sparked this whole way of life for me and I honestly couldn’t be more thankful. This truly has been a life long learning and practicing process for me. Recently I found out that my school was offering a class on the wellness and healing of plants and herbs and I knew I just had to take it. A few months ago I made the commitment to incorporate essential oils into our family’s lifestyle. I have loved it! And I think that this new class will complement all we have been living!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are excited to learn!!!


I can’t wait …

The past two days I’ve been firming up our Easter plans. To say that I’m EXCITED is an understatement!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you CAN’T WAIT!!!

Feeling Lucky …

Today was a great day. I always get into the kitchen on St. Patrick’s Day, experimenting with new recipes. It is one of my absolute favorite things to do! But on top of that, my son George came home today for Spring Break. I was so excited to see him after two months, I could BURST! It was one of those days where I caught myself smiling a few times, knowing that life is good and that I’m pretty darn happy. This day and all it included left me feeling exactly how you should feel on St. Patrick’s Day.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you feel LUCKY!!!

Too excited to sleep …

I couldn’t fall asleep last night and I woke up at 3:30 a. m. this morning.


Because after two months away at college I FINALLY get to see my son George today. It’s his university’s family weekend. YAY! And get this! Sid has arranged to spend some time with me today too! I get to spend time with BOTH my big kids! WOO HOO!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are too excited to sleep!!!

Cleaning supplies and poor timing …

Sooooo I commited to a Mrs. Meyer’s Cleaning Product subscription and I can’t wait to receive my first shipment! And no, NEVER in a million years could I have imagined myself being THIS excited to receive cleaning supplies in the mail. HA! But I have been using their products for a while now and really like them! Before committing to the subscription I determined that I had enough of my cleaning supplies to get me through until my shipment arrived. NOPE. I am out of hand soap and I can do two more loads of laundry then I’m out of that too. Running out of these two particular products in THIS house is NOT an option! So even though I have an entire box filled with wonderful cleaning products being delivered to my very home TOMORROW … I’m going to have to go shopping TODAY to get more. UGH.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t have poor timing!!!
