It’s My Blogiversary

This month 2 years ago I began blogging. I took a hiatus but I’m baaaaaaacccckk.

What was supposed to be a holiday time off became a four and a half month break, but what can I say, but life got hectic. It still is, but I missed blogging and hope that with a regular one day a week post that I can still make time for family, church, work and give you a great quality blog.

I’m hoping to do more DIYs, recipes, mommy stuff. That said I’ve got some exciting blogs planned. But for now here’s a few of my favorite blog posts from the past 2 years.

I’m always on the go for either work, family, church and have to really maximize my time. So I had an idea that there are probably things that all moms and some dads do to manage their time. I created a list of 10 things this busy mom does.

Moms and dads are always juggling something. Here you’ll find some tips to streamline your load.

I love a good slice or three of pizza. We have our favorites and have quickly added our own at-home pizza to this list. It’s such an easy way to add everybody’s favorite ingredients and heck make it healthy and do all veggies.

The post I created in October was the first time we made our own pizza and we have since then perfected our recipe and tried different ingredients. But if you are looking for an easy at-home pizza recipe then look now further.

The ingredients are fresh and pre-made to create one delish pizza.

When my Bath & Body Works Peach Bellini foam soap ran out this DIY Diva had to create her own. I had so much fun creating this for my Tip Tuesday series. I did try other “soaps” first like the original blue Dawn, but the Olay Hand Renewal version left my hands clean and soft and isn’t that the point. It only required like two “ingredients” — Dawn liquid soap and water. That’s it. Pour in water, mix in a few squirts of the soap and you have DIY Foam Hand Soap.

A little Dawn dish soap, water and a reused foam soap dispenser is all you need to make your own.

The last post I thoroughly enjoyed and still love is the last one before my break — Relax….it’s the Holidays. In that December post I talked about how holidays can be stressful, duh. So instead of holiday food recipes or Christmas decorating tips, I shared how to relax. Yasss, girl.

I created, with the help of the Internet, three detox bath recipes. I’ve always been a bath person and when I was pregnant bath time was such a relaxing way to end my day. So without any further discussion here’s my favorite detox bath recipe. Check the blog post for more.

epsom salt, baking soda and essential oil make for simple and relaxing detox bath.

Pizza and a Movie

My husband and I love pizza, but hate waiting for delivery and don’t always feel like driving to get it. What’s a person to do? I mean, of course it’s obvious — make your own. We made the decision recently to make our own pizza. We are trying to eat healthy and it was a way to choose what we put into our mouths.

We chose fresh and some pre-made ingredients, but you can totally use all fresh. I’ve always liked the bite that fresh spinach gives to pizza so of course we had to have it on our pizza. We also wanted bell peppers, onions (I love onions). The mushrooms and black olives were canned and bought from my local Food Lion store.

I preferred Boboli because the crust was thick, which is the kind of crust we like and it was available at grocery store. I bought the Inspirations Neapolitan pizza sauce on sale. It was a closeout item and only cost me 78 cents. I bought two jars.

We chose a pizza cheese blend and a pre-made pizza crust that only took 10 minutes to bake. The only effort really was chopping the vegetables.

Creating a family pizza night doesn’t have to be hard or expensive. We made two pizzas and had plenty of leftover sauce for two more pizzas later in the week.  We had a couple of slices and watched a great movie on Netflix.
