Beautiful walk to the beach with the kids and dog! It was sunny, warm, spacious and just what we needed. AND there wasn't any complaining! Thankful for our gorgeous home & planet!

See that laptop and books right there?

Yeah, it's been sitting in that same spot untouched all day. Mason has completely hit his limit with this "distance learning". And I'll be honest I'm almost ready to call it summer break already(a month early)! It was going so well until about 2 weeks ago when his defiant personality decided it was done with this type of schooling, and depression and social anxiety in full swing! Isolation is so tough on ours/everyone's mental health and I don't know if we can take anymore of it!

2020 is the year I told myself I'd start focusing on a healthier lifestyle and one thing I've been working on is eating a plant based diet. I've still got a ways to go but I'll get there and so far I feel great! 🌳I've partnered with LightLife to bring you this post, but all opinions are my own. One thing I'm new to is tempeh, after eating the vegan tacos I made, I'm totally sold! I made these amazing tacos with sweet potatoes and Lightlife Original Tempeh. I didn't miss the meat at all!
🌳Tempeh can be used for a number of meals as a protein replacement, available for purchase at your local grocery store(I've found ours at Fred Meyer and @imperfectfoods ) typically for $3.49. Easy to prep, vegan certified, has a savory and slightly nutty flavor, non-GMO and 12g of protein.

Looking for a DIY Halloween Costume? Over 25 different ideas!

Sharing is caring!

When you think of Halloween, for most, the first thing that comes to mind is dressing up. Picking the best costume for yourself is key to the holiday. Maybe you decide weeks in advance or maybe it’s last minute; will you be something scary, a character from a movie, from a fairly tale?

There are so many options for Halloween costumes, sure you could visit Spirit Halloween but you’re just paying 90% more then what you should be. There are so many options for cheap costumes that look like you spent the money.

Pick your whole costume out at the thrift store, like my whole Mary Poppins costume courtesy of Goodwill. There are also some great do-it-yourself costumes like a faun costume, Stranger Things costumes, Thor costume and so many more. Check out all the different ideas below from some amazing bloggers. Even if you don’t find what you’re looking for below, hopefully it’ll give you some inspiration.

    So many great ideas!
    I love making homemade costumes. Not only are they more original, but I think they look so much cuter, especially on kids!
    Now the only problem is- what to make this year… ;)
