Clean Cobb Salad

by

A clean version of a cobb salad is a rare find! While doing our 30 Day Detox, I did a lot of meal prep and made a salad for lunch almost every day. Since I had a lot of hard boiled eggs and had some avocados I came up with this idea for a clean cobb. I was sick of only having oil and vinegar for a dressing and wanted something creamier. This salad turned out amazing! I can eat this salad over and over again and (more…)

30 Day Detox – One Week Update & Tips!

by

We’re a little over a week in our 30-day detox and I can’t believe how well it’s going! Let me start off by saying I was skeptical of our one-week results because we went to an event during the weekend and we weren’t perfect that day. Hey, we are all human life is life things come up and we are trying to make a lifestyle change not just accomplish a 30-day challenge, so a being perfect all the time isn’t going to happen. I let it go and figured my week one results just wouldn’t be as great as I’d hoped. I was totally wrong and we still got great results in the first week. So, here’s my one week update and some tips I’ve learned along the first week of detoxing.

DIY Magic Band Decals

by

Whether you are planning your first trip to Walt Disney World or your 100th, you’ve likely seen or heard that Disney uses something called a Magic Band as an all in one source for your park ticket, room key, reservations, photos, fast passes and even a credit card to use on in park purchases. Basically, everything for your vacation is linked on this one little waterproof wristband.

If you book a stay at one of the Walt Disney World resorts your entire party will receive a magic band by mail at least 30 days prior to your vacation. You can also choose to buy your own magic band and Disney sells many different ones. I now have about 10 different magic bands. I like to make these personalized magic band decals with my Cricut die cut machine. They add a little personality and then I can tell my bands apart.

Make Your Own Vinyl Decals for Disney Magic Bands Decals with Cricut

The magic bands used for this project were the old style magic band. Around January 2017, Disney updated the magic bands and now uses a different style. This project will still work for the new style bands, but you may need to adjust the size of your decal accordingly.

There are many places you can buy vinyl decals such as Etsy if you do not want to make your own vinyl decals. I love any excuse to use my Cricut, so I make them for myself, friend’s, and family. This is a pretty (more…)

Winter Weekend in Chicago

by

What to do, where to eat and see during a weekend in Chicago during winter.

Chicago is a wonderful place to visit for a weekend trip. It is easily accessible from just about every airport and for many midwestern states, it is an easy driving distance. Chicago is around 4-5 hours from where we live. I was born just outside of Chicago, spent a summer in college working there and my husband went to undergraduate there, so we both know the city well and this made it an easy decision for us when we were trying to find a city for our one-year anniversary trip. Not to mention the amazing (more…)
