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

Make your own Mardi Gras King Cake

Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday, which is a celebration of the last night to eat rich, fatty foods before lent. Do you celebrate Mardi Gras? We started the traditional night of Mardi Gras last year, but not on the actual day. We indulge ourselves in some tasty Cajun foods, including the popular King Cake. Last year the only place we found a King Cake was at Whole Foods and after paying over $15 for a “cinnamon roll with sprinkles” I decided this year we’d make our own.

This King Cake is so easy and simple to make, a child could do it. With only needing Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls, Sprinkles and a bundt cake pan. Cost us less than $10, all we had to buy were the cinnamon rolls because we already had all the sprinkle colors in our pantry.

Preheat oven to 375°, and spray your bundt pan with cooking spray. Be sure to get a cute little helper! Evenly layer your cinnamon rolls in the pan. Cook in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, once they’ve browned and no longer look doughy take out of the oven and let cool for about 5 minutes.

Flip the pan over onto a large enough plate and lightly shake until the cake comes out. For the frosting, take the metal part off of the little cup of cream cheese and microwave for about 15 seconds. Slowly drizzle the cream cheese frosting over the cake, make sure to cover the full top. It will drizzle down the sides. Now immediately sprinkle purple, yellow and green sprinkles over the frosting.

And ENJOY!!

With the traditional King Cake you randomly place a small plastic baby inside, which the baby symbolizes luck and prosperity to whoever finds it in his/her slice of cake. Although we didn’t put a baby inside, we still had an amazing time making and eating the cake. Have you made your own King Cake? If not, do you feel comfortable enough to make it now?
