12 Reasons to Follow Me on Pinterest

Follow on Pinterest

Pinterest is an incredible platform that makes it possible to organize ideas!  I have loved Pinterest since the moment we "met."  Organizing is my thing!  And I have lots of ideas.  I find lots of ideas from all over.  But I'm not always able to IMPLEMENT all my ideas on the spot.  I need a place to store them for future use.  Pinterest allows me to do just that: to save all my ideas in an organized fashion. If you aren't on Pinterest yet, CHECK IT OUT!  You can find details on how it Continue Reading …

Food Storage French Toast

French toast is adored at our house.  Yes.  Adored.  All six of us love it.  Everyone requests it for the birthday breakfast.  We often have it for dinner.  Overnight guests enjoy it for breakfast.  We might be addicted.

And this 100% food storage french Continue Reading …

Add Photos to Your 72 Hour Kit: 10 min Preparedness Project

Photos to 72 Hour Kit

A Picture Says 1000 Words If you are separated from your child during a disaster (they are at school you are at home etc), having a picture of your family in your 72 hour kit will be invaluable.  It will help you when asking others to help look for your loved ones.  It will help authorities find you when / if you child doesn't know your full name etc.  It can also help prove that you all "belong" to each other and have for some time in case of identity theft, etc. Today, go add a family Continue Reading …

Homemade Oatmeal Packets (aka copycat Quaker Medleys)

12

You've all heard it before: "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day" And it certainly can be!  It sets the tone for the rest of your day.  Yet it can be so hard (at least for me) to find the time to make a healthy breakfast each morning.  As a result, I often reach for things that are quick and easy, but pricey and maybe a little preservative and additive heavy. My kids LOVE oatmeal packets and lately I've really been enjoying the Quaker Medleys since they are multigrain Continue Reading …

5 Simple Ways to Eat More Veggies

Eat More Veggies

photo credit: Aproximando Ciência e Pessoas via photopin cc We've been trying to eat a bit healthier around this house.  I need more energy and I'm realizing more and more, that the energy that comes out of my body is based heavily on the quality of energy I put into my body.  That seems pretty obvious, right?  But it is so easy to rationalize away while I skip lunch so I can work or snack on sugary treats. But I got a bit of a wake up call from my 7 year old the other day.    We had Continue Reading …

Thrive August Specials: A 5 Year Celebration

Aug Specials

I am pretty excited about this month's sale!  You know back in March when we had the "biggest sale of the year?"  Well, that sale was big b/c everything was on sale, but the discounts weren't especially deep.  In my opinion, this month's sale is actually better! (if not bigger).   Not everything is on sale, but the items that are on sale are our very popular items (the founder's favorites) AND the discounts are incredible: 25%-50% off the retail price! This month marks 5 years since Thrive Continue Reading …

Meaningful Back to School Traditions

Back to school dinner

I am in shock.  This summer went by so fast!  I am NOT ready to send my kiddos back to school.  I have loved our Summer System, not having a specific hour when we have to be up and having them home all day every day.  I really enjoy being around my kids (well, until about 4:00 every day and then I need a break...haha) But, "back to school" is coming whether I like it or not (just go to Walmart or Target and you will see what I mean!) and I need to prepare for it.  The more prepared I am, Continue Reading …
