5 Ways To Add Relaxation To Your Day

Life can be crazy, and I go days and days without a break and the only way I get by is by sneaking relaxation into my daily duties. I have 3 kids and watch numerous others so slipping in some me time is very important. Here are ways to give yourself a break even while working your butt off:

Have a Picnic: Kids love picnics and they can be extremely relaxing even with little kids. Make sure you have the exact right spot like your backyard or a easily accessible park for the kids to play and let you sit and relax. Before you know it lunch will be calm and cool while the kids enjoy themselves.

Play Eye Spy: When your walking with kids, driving, or taking a bus nothing makes them calm and quiet quite like a game of eye spy. My 4 year old daughter will play this game for hours and it keeps her in a great mood while we travel from point A to point B. 

Read a Story: I love reading books with my kids and they love when I do it. Another excellent way to make sure you get some down time and relax. Story after story your kids will enjoy it.

Look For Shapes in the clouds: Find a comfy place on the grass and lay a blanket down. Have all the kids lay on their backs and try to find shapes in the clouds. Cloud-free day? Try making your own calming yoga routine for the kids to follow. You will be amazed at how much fun the kids will have copying your moves.

At Home Spa: Whether your children are boys or girls you can create your very own relaxing spa for you and the kids to enjoy. You can paint little girls nails, let them use some great smelling lotion on their hands and feet, clip their nails and do some simple hygiene that would normally be a chore. 

With all of these easy ways to sit and relax I hope you will find time for you in this busy life!

Impress Manicure Voxbox Review!

So I got to be involved in another awesome Voxbox by Influenster and I have to say I am super impressed with the adorable nails. They are called imPress Press-On Manicure and they are so simple to apply my friend had them on her hands within 5 minutes. They are very light and come in a variety of sizes for all fingers. The styles are so cute to. If you love getting your nails done and don't like taking an hour for gel nails or paying 75-100 dollars for gel nails then I highly recommend imPress nails! 

The prices for these nails can't be beat!

Quick tip: The nails say they are supposed to last up to a week but depending on what type of activities you do this could be tough, so while your nails come off you can save them and buy same nail glue from the store and reuse these nails again!

Backyard Farm!

I have loved the outdoors my whole life and I have also always wanted to be a farmer! Working hard for my food and saving the environment as well as saving money. There are so many benefits to farming it's just amazing. But I have never been able to afford a farm land, sadly enough it costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to have your own farm. But what about all of us with roomy backyards that want to get a taste of the farm life? That is when I got the idea that I wanted to have a backyard farm.
 These all came from seeds, I have peas, carrots, potatoes, corn, radishes, watermelon, pumpkins, potatoes, tomatoes, sunflowers, blueberries, and raspberries!
So far I have my beautiful vegetable garden, and my berry plants, and right now I am working on my chicken run and coop! It is very exciting to me to get this going right where I live. I feel like a farmer! My kids have there stuff set up in the yard and I have so much room that my beautiful chickens are going to have a 10 feet by 100 feet chicken run and cozy coop to nest in and provide me with delicious eggs!
My chicken run is going to be exceeding standard size runs because I want my beautiful birds to be happy in their home! Happy hens lay the most eggs! It is going to be quite the adventure and I am going to bring you along for the ride! Read along about our adventures and learn while I learn all about backyard farming and getting the most out of your life!
Now off I go to get building my chicken run!

Kids Email and Giveaway!

Everyone wants to keep their kids safe on the internet and if you let your child send and receive email then this is the best way to go about it. Personally I don't believe kids should be allowed to have their own Facebook or other social media accounts due to unsafe activities. That is just my own personal opinion, but I do believe that kids should be allowed the chance to enjoy technology and remain connected with all of their friends.
