Our Elf on the Shelf, Jingle, arrived as usual the morning after Thanksgiving. But this year, he brought with him some Christmas Spirit, LITERALLY.
Every Elf on the Shelf has a personality of its own, which is determined by the creativity and motivation level of the parents. Some elves are jolly and generous. They have tea parties with Barbie, leave merry notes around the house and even bring small gifts! Some, elves on the other hand, are very mischievous. They make a mess playing in flour snow, have mini marshmallow snow ball fights with a Darth Vader action figure, or leave green pee in the toilet. (I am looking forward to seeing some fun, new ideas from my creatively motivated friends this year!) Continue reading “Jingle brought some Christmas Spirit”

I didn’t buy it for a second… Continue reading “How I got hooked on Young Living Essential Oils”

It is crucial that we listen to our bodies, and resist the urge to jump right back in where we left off. (This is very easily said, but, unfortunately, not easily done…for me, at least.) However, now that I’ve been cleared to get back to my regular workouts, it’s time to get Back to Jacked! Continue reading “Getting Back to Jacked- Oiling up for Exercise”
