Summer time "Myst" have...

It is so funny to me how some people do not believe in sunscreen in this day in age.  When ever we are around friends, the verdict on if sunscreen is necessary is also so iffy.  Some live by it, some think it's not needed.  I have had enough sunburns to know it is very necessary.  Sunscreen doesn't just protect up from sunburn, but also sun damage.

Recently my family was given an opportunity to try Copperton ClearlySheer sunscreen thanks to Bzz Agent.


 We only used it a few times before I was convinced it was a winner.  Most importartly, it worked well which is the number one reason to choose a sunscreen but I also was very pleased with some of the other benefits not found in some other brands.

The Coppertone ClearlySheer sunscreen was very light and left our skin feeling smooth and soft... not greasy at all. There is nothing worse than your young child being slippery from greasy sunscreen when it becomes difficult to grab them in the water if needed. That was a very big improvement to me compared to some others I have used in the past.  Coppertone ClearlySheer uses a moisturizing formula to achieve this.  The formula they use also does not block pores or cause breakouts which was very important to my teen son.

I am very please with this new sunscreen and thankful for Bzz Agent for having my family test it.

Fun & Practical Play Time

Owning my own home based business and having a 3 year old home with me during the day is not an easy task.  I actually do not get much work done during the day at all.  During her "work" time, I sit her desk next to mine and have her do worksheets.  Other than that, my "work" day is really non-existent.  Then there are the days I have to get something done but she wants to play... and usually outside.  As much as I am family first, a work dead-line is a dead-line so I must get it done.  So we must improvise...

Today she wanted to go outside and play hopscotch...

My solution: An indoor hopscotch floor decal in the living room, which can be easily covered up by the area rug when she is all done.  While my vinyl is cutting on the machine, I can even play a few rounds with her. 

Win | Win

{Home School Pre-School} The Weather Wheel

My daughter may only be three years old but I think she may be one of the best meteorologist in town.  She enjoys predicting the weather and seems to be pretty good at it.  I have seen a few weather charts for little ones online and came across a cute weather wheel I liked.  We decided to make our own variation of it.


The arrows have magnet backings so she can move them from day to day on what the weather is, and at night, she can move them to what she predicts the weather will be the next day.

{Faithfully Fit} 12 / 3

I have been using Herbalife for 3 weeks now and I must say, I have been feeling GREAT! I have had an Herbalife shake every morning and it gives me such a great burst of energy... it's such a good way to start my day... not to mention, they are SO yummy so it is like having a sweet treat!

A few people have asked me how I make these yummy shakes that help me loose pounds and gives me energy.  Well, I make a few different variations but my favorite is white chocolate peanut butter.  Funny thing is, I NEVER like peanut butter before.

I start off with 1 cup of crushed ice...

Next I add 1 scoop of Herbalife Healthy Meal (Formula 1), 1 scoop of Herbalife Protein Powder, 2 tablespoons of powdered peanut butter (PB2) and 1 teaspoon of sugar free, fat free White Chocolate Jell-O pudding mix (powder)

I add 8 ounces of milk (which you could also add with water since you have the protein powder but I really like the creamy, milky texture)... and BLEND IT UP!

 Pour in your tumbler, then sip and enjoy!

I personally have been amazed by how much housework I get done with all this new found energy.  

So you may be wondering what is up with today's title, 12/3... well as of this morning, I have dropped 12 pounds in 3 the last 3 weeks.  The energy I get from the shakes also has me working out more and actually craving it... craving the yummy shakes too!

If you are interested in trying out the great line of Herbalife products, I would be more than happy to assist you with placing an order... or with information on how you can be a distributor and share with your own friend and family.

For most of my life, I was a "have to see it to believe it kinda girl" until my faith took me to a point where I had to believe to see... and now I do.

I see "proof" all around me... and in me.  I am proof.

I am proof that a hard-headed youth can become an open minded adult... Everyone deserves to be heard.

I am proof that a foodie can enjoy food and still be in shape and healthy... with a little thanks to Herbalife.

I am proof that a teenager can have a baby and still raise an amazing teenager... Isaac is pretty incredible.

I am proof that you can overcome a statistic... I graduated high school with a tiny tot.

I am proof that a "doodler" can turn their doodles into something... Have you checked out

I am proof that a day dreamer can get somewhere in life... my imagination helps me be creative.

I am proof that you aren't a loser or drop out, until you quit... I haven't taken a college class in years, but haven't dropped out or quit my goal of graduating college.

I am proof that good things come to those who wait... I heard big, frizzy hair is coming back in style.

I am proof that you really be what you want to be even when others say you can't... Look at me now.  I am an artist and NOT starving!

I am proof that slow and steady wins the race... it may have taken me a while to get here, but here I am. Winning!

I am proof that depression does not have to be depressing... I laugh more than I cry.

I am proof that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree... I believe in fighting for what is right, like my father.

I am proof that you don't always have to know what you are doing to do it well... my children didn't come with a manual.

I am proof that a sinner will not catch the church roof on fire... our church ceiling may leak at times, but I am pretty sure it has been fire free.

I am proof that GOD doesn't love me any less because I did not know Him personally sooner... He blesses me everyday.

I am proof that a lot of wrong turns can still take you to the right place... I may not being exactly where I am going, but I know I am in a great place.
