I started the year out with a goal to lose weight and get my diabetes under control. Crafting recipes that were low carb and delicious was one of my top goals. Check out this recipe that people go crazy for here.
Learned to eat better meant that I needed a guide. I found this handy printable online and since then it has been shared more than 30,000 times! I can tell you that when I was on plan eating this way, I lost over 20lbs, fairly quickly and I felt awesome. Time to get back on track for sure!
Some big highlights to our year were about our children. Our little princess loves her Elsa and throwing a Frozen themed party would not have been complete without the ice queen and ice princess. You can read more about how Princess Ever After made our day amazing!
Princesses and Disney are themes in our lives that I just love. So when I was asked to Dream Big Princess, I did so on a budget! Check out how I created this dream board and dress up station!
One of my OCD ticks is that I have to have a clean home. I just do not work well if my space is messy. Now that is not to say that I don't have messes (oh we do!), but I have came up with some easy tips to keep your home sparkling and people went crazy for them! Take a peek.
Not to be left out, our amazing little boy wanted a Super Mario Brothers Swim party...that just decided to coincide with a HUGE blizzard. Take a peak at how we pulled off a great party with the help of Oriental Trading.
This year was rough, but one of the best parts of the year was getting to become an auntie to a precious little boy. However, we had to welcome him first and prepare his parents with this unbelievable Nautical Themed Baby Shower! You have to see it to believe it.
I do a lot of sponsored posts on this blog, but I always make sure to only share products and items that our family truly uses and believes in. However, sometimes a product comes along that you just have to share even without a sponsorship. ROG3 is that product and you can see why in my post here.
I was asked this year why did I become a blogger and I shared a bit of my story here...then I shared these amazing Cheesecake Stuffed Chocolate Covered Strawberries and they took off! Recipe with a video is in this post.
Some of my favorite posts to write are those where I get to give to others. This post on an On the Go Fishing kit was one of my favorites too! My husband loved it and it was easy to see why you all went crazy for it as well! Take a peek.
Although I am eager to say goodbye to 2016, I am thankful as ever for the opportunities that this little blog has provided my family and I. I am thankful for you all and I am ever thankful that even outside of the classroom I can help people! Here is to the end of 2016 and the beginning of what I only can hope is 1/10th better than this year.
