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.

Trending this school year! & #backtoschool Staples Giveaway!

Sharing is caring!

School is right around the corner, which means back to school shopping! You are either ready for it to begin or dreading it, either way make sure you are prepared for it. Now, a couple things to remember when back to school shopping 1)Children don’t need a whole new wardrobe(unless they really have outgrown all of their clothing) but yes it is nice to have a few new pieces 2)Elementary aged kids; comfortable, mess safe, appropriate 3)Quality is key, children are very rough with their stuff – I am all about saving money but the number one thing I do not buy cheap is a BACKPACK, it needs to be able to last the entire school year.
First off I am not always one that goes for only the popular trends, I do like to know what’s in style though and not be one who completely clashes in a crowd.

These are some trending items for children this school year! And all are under $70, because I like cheap ;)
