Be healthy, Be happy!

As moms we tend to think we are Superwoman and can do it all! But don't forget you need some time for yourself. Eating healthy is difficult when your toddler didn't finish their mac n' cheese and you don't want to "just throw it away". So I have been trying to be healthy and put myself first, because if I get sick or don't have energy it effects everyone! So I started daily walks with Sydney and replacing one meal a day with a "Green smoothie" (see pinterest board for recipes). I need some music to motivate me when I am walking/running/dancing so here is my list. Go buy songs here at iTunes.

I did't have the time to type all the songs, so I just took a screenshot of my iTunes playlist.
When I get time I will type the whole list :)

DIY Cookbook: stalk your friend's Pinterest boards!

I wanted to do something nice for my friend who enjoys cooking, so I stalked her Pinterest. She had pinned a DIY cookbook and some recipes. This was a no-brainer; make her a cookbook and print out the recipes she pinned :)!

Supplies Used:
3ring Binder with clear cover
Printer/paper
and lots of clear page protectors!
Page dividers
Scrapbook paper
Stickers

This is what the cover ended up looking like with the Family's last name as the heading

In the back I added a cupcake box, and a Veggie cooking cheat sheet
Closer look of what I added to the inside pockets



Inside I added a card, recipe cards, a weekly meal planning organizer and other  chef must have's



I printed one recipe for each section and placed it inside the page protectors



The back cover;  Scrapbook paper, then glued a Measurement Conversion Chart to it for quick reference.

Bad picture...but it reads "Get Cookin'"
Personally, I used 6 page dividers: Breakfast, Starters, Soup/Salad, Entrees, Sides/Sauces, and Sweets. When you make your own use as many or as little as you want. Here are all the printables I found online and used in the cookbook! Thank goodness for those people who already created cute printables so I didn't have to! Finally, print one recipe from each section (one breakfast, starter, entree, etc.) and put inside a page protector with some more empty page protectors behind it so they can add their own! I hope you or your friend enjoys the book and inspires some good home cookin'!

I didn't save the link for the "Made with Love" cards, but I'm sure they are on Pinterest somewhere!
