Are we going a little stir crazy? You betcha, but oh well we'll survive. 🚲 Was supposed to start month 3 of my work out challenge, but you know what I just needed a mental health day. I'll start tomorrow or the next day if needed. Didn't even make Mason get all his school work done, he'll have to finish it tomorrow. We just needed a day to relax as much as possible in this crazy time we're in.

There are so many things I'm thankful for and one of those is the amount of nature areas Washington state has to offer. I'm so thankful we were able to get out and walk Nisqually Wildlife Perserve before the "Stay Home, stay healthy" order the Gov. placed. It was wonderful to get out one last time, this staying home is tough and I don't know how we're going to manage?!! #pnw #nature #optoutside #stayhome #momlife #sendwine

🌴On Saturday we took advantage of the sunshine and finally got out of the house! This will be a rough and trying time for our mental health, not going to lie. But we got to play at the local beach while practicing #socialdistancing it was wonderful! 🌻And we found a beautiful painted rock, thank you to who ever hid it!

What are you going to do with your child if homeschooling isn't cut out for them or your family? Take a deep breath, exhale and relax. It'll be okay! Everyone's health and wellness is much more important at this time than academics. I've got a list of activities if you'd like some structure in your lives though. Check it out on my blog.

Glad we were able to squeeze in one more trip out into the community and zoo before things start shutting down. Friday Piper and I made an impromptu visit to Pt defiance zoo! It was great minus the cold/rain; there was only a couple other people, animals were active, didnt need to touch anything. Now schools are out for 6 weeks and we plan on quarantining ourselves at home for most of that time, except to get out into nature.

On February 3 I started My Peak Challenge and happy to say I'm still going strong! I've been needing to make some lifestyle changes and get more active. I've been working to control what I eat, getting some kind of exercise  in daily which I'm really enjoying. I didn't think I'd ever say that! 💚 #MPC2020 has truly started changing my life, I've had more positive thoughts and my body feels good. @mypeakchallenge

84 Summer Recipes for the Instant Pot and Slow Cooker

Sharing is caring!

It’s summer time, which means a lot of BBQing, cold foods, anything to not use the oven. I know I dread using the oven during the summer because we don’t have central air conditioning. If I do use it, it’s usually for baking something in the late evening hours. As much as I love BBQ foods, there’s also times where I don’t want it or maybe we need more propane. There’s also times where I want to spend my day at the beach and come home to a home-cooked meal still. That’s why I love my slow cooker and instant pot, because I can still have hot foods without using the oven.
