War Room Review


photo credit Google

I finally watched War Room with Luis on Saturday night and I still can not stop thinking about it!!

I won't go into too much detail because I hate giving away too much info. 
The movie surrounds Tony and Elizabeth Jordan's marriage. After being married 16 years their marriage has become cold and bitter, leaving Tony open to temptation elsewhere.
Elizabeth meets an elderly lady, Miss Clara, who quickly notices there seems to be problems in her marriage and makes it her mission to help Elizabeth. She teaches Elizabeth the ins and outs of prayer and how to use it. Elizabeth goes to spiritual war for her marriage and family- the outcome is a God given miracle.

How I clean my makeup brushes



I have a ton of makeup brushes. I'm a bit obsessed! These aren't even all of them, but I use these the most. I get lazy sometimes and take a while to wash them. When I don't wash them and it's obvious they are dirty, there is a 80% chance I end up with a blemish. I am currently in hiding with a cluster on my forehead!

5 Ways To Keep Your House Clean


I have a confession........ I am a bit of a clean freak. I really cannot stand a dirty house. My house gets messy throughout the day, and from time to time I just let the mess be. However if my house is dirty- as in dusty, toilets have poop stains, dishes are piled and laundry is piled, I cannot function. Over the years I have gotten A LOT better with this disorder of mine. I guess having kids makes it a bit impossible to be a full on crazed clean freak! Who knew?! I do blame them though. I was a normal, "who cares if the house is dirty!" type of person, until I got pregnant with Abram. From then on I cleaned everything in sight! Everything had to be organized, antibacterialized, degermalized, deodorized, you name it. Well, low and behold, he is a bit of a clean freak himself. He washes his hands like 10 times a day. He won't go to bed with a dirty room. Everything in his room has a place. And he refuses to share germs with anyone, unless it's a lollipop that Eli has, then he tends to make an exception. Haha, gross!

Ground Beef and Whatever Hash Recipe

I wanted to thank you for all the encouragements and nice comments on my last post! Seriously I am so happy to know I can encourage some of you out there to start eating healthier, after all that is the goal of a blogger, to inspire others.
Some of you asked for recipes and food ideas. I do have many Paleo cookbooks, however on days like yesterday where Josiah is fussy (he is teething), and Abram and Eli are being needy, I have what I call a "throw stuff together" kind of recipe. Most of the time I have all of these items on hand, and if I don't have one of these I can omit that item and it will still taste pretty much the same. I call this my.....
"Ground Beef and Whatever Hash" 
Funny name, I know, but this recipe is so versatile that you can add whatever veggies to it and will probably still be great! Haha.

6 Month Paleo Update


Despite how embarrassing these pictures are for me, I wanted to share my weight loss update with you.
In July I shared here that I was starting back up on my paleo way of living. I had done Paleo in the past and I loved how quickly I was able to drop weight, how energized I felt and how I didn't even feel like it was a diet. Paleo just became a way of life for my family and I.
I stopped paleo while I was pregnant with Josiah, honestly because I couldn't control my urges to eat everything in sight! Well low and behold I gained a whopping 50 lbs during my pregnancy all because I could not put down the Whopper! I was obsessed with Burger King- now I can't even smell it. My last week of pregnancy I was weighing 180 lbs.
