Engine 2 Diet

(a bowl of raw oats, shredded wheat, with kiwis, bananas and almond milk for breakfast - taste super good and it's healthy)

after my husband and i watched the "Forks Over Knives Presents: The Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue" documentary we are convinced that we both need to eat healthier and be healthier. there's just too many diseases happening out there that we want to do our best to avoid being in the statistics. boy it is not easy to change your eating habits and to go on a daily workout but it definitely pays off. my husband has been doing much better than i have - kudos to him! we both are enjoying this process together and let just say it's our #1 new year resolution - live a healthy life so we can look great and feel strong!

wish us the best! :)

DIY: Simple Bow

This year I decided to make things a little more simple with my gift wrapping. My husband and I are focusing on finishing up painting our house - we are first time painters so we are super slow - we feel like it's too much work to have Christmas decoration up or even a Christmas tree. Though I am a little bummed for not having a Christmas tree. I can't go through Christmas without the pine tree smell so I bought nordic pine candles and light them up around our house and it smell as good as the real tree. Add Chrismas songs to our home (like everyday) and it smells and feels just like Christmas :) As for gift wrapping this year I still use my brown paper bag wrapping paper, tie the presents with yarn and glue a ready made pom pom on the bow (the bow made from tying the yarn).

All you need is yarn, glue gun, and medium size pom pom (you can buy it at Michaels). Use the yarn as the ribbon and tie them into a bow in however ways you like (be creative). Then glue one pom pom in the middle of the bow to give it a pop.

Ta Da! I went with a black and white look so the presents look a little more simple and clean.

Hope you are having fun finishing up last minute things and enjoy your time with friends and family!

hello, hope your holiday season is going good so far. mine has been great...been staying active, busy, and done with xmas shopping. now getting ready to wrap them and send them away. we had a beautifull snow day a few days ago and i just love how our backyard is covered with snow - everything is crystal white. here looking at our backyard...

These snowy days remind me of the setting in the fine frenzy video "avalanches" - a song in her new ablum "pines." in fact her whole album can totally fit for this winter snowy day.

it's going to be a white christmas here in minnesota :)
