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

Just an IDEA!! With the coronavirus and people stocking their homes with TP, disinfecting wipes, tissues, hand santizer.... Think about buying an extra wipe container, hand santizer and/or tissue box and donate it to your child's teacher. I'm 100% positive they wouldnt turn it down! Keep in mind I'm sure the school is supplying them with some stuff but a lot of times teachers spend money out of their own pockets for classroom stuff. Remember your child is spending a good portion of their time at school right now, not just at home.

The Best Blueberry Muffins

Sharing is caring!

It’s summer time, which means endless berries! Whether they’re raw or baked into deliciousness! My family loves eating and cookies with berries. Blueberries make the perfect snack, addition to fruit salad, in iced tea and of course a favorite of ours is muffins. I’m not talking about a bland blueberry muffin; it needs to be sweet, buttery, a little sour and moist. Nothing worst then having a dry mouth after eating a muffin.

These blueberry muffins are seriously THE BEST!! You will not want to make blueberry muffins any other way. They are very easy to make and stay good on the counter for at least 3 days(maybe longer, we haven’t been able to not eat them).

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease muffin tin or line with muffin liners. In a large bowl or a stand mixer, stir vegetable oil, sugar, vanilla, egg and milk. Slowly add in flour, salt and baking powder and stir until combined.

If batter is too thick add a little more milk. Fold in blueberries.

Make crumb topping by; in a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour, butter, and cinnamon. Mix with fork and set aside. Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.

Bake for about 25 minutes in preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Place on a cooling rack for about 10 minutes.

Enjoy the muffins warm or cold! They taste amazing! These are great to bring to a potluck, on a road trip, camping or wherever as they don’t need to be refrigerated or served warm.
