Wouldn't you love a Beautiful Garden?!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Whitney Farms. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have been so in the mood to Garden.  I've been working on my flower beds out front and also a vegetable garden for the first time.  Wish me luck :)  I can't wait to hopefully show pictures of how beautiful it has all turned out, hopefully that will be a later post and I will be so happy! :) 

My Grandma & Grandpa lived next door to us while I was growing up and they always had the most beautiful garden.  When ever I smell a certain smell it brings back a wonderful memory.  I hope to have a garden like theirs someday.  Wouldn't something like this be lovely.  Ahhhh..

                                     .

I have a pretty big space on the side of our house for our vegetable garden and I'll be super pumped if it even comes out something like this.....

                                                  

Of course anyone would only want to grow the best.  I would love to have it all organic and have only the best produce for my family.

 Whitney Farms® would allow me to do just that.  Whitney Farms® is a line of 100% natural plant foods and soils.  It has no additives, nothing artificial, just ingredients from the Earth, designed to give you big, beautiful flowers and veggies.  Their organic soil & organic plant food seems to be the way to go! It would definitely improve my garden.  Now a days there are so many additives and artificial things in everything we eat.  An all natural soil and plant food would be ideal to grow your own produce. Knowing that what I have grown and what my family is eating is completely organic would be a great thing!

Never Pay for Red Box!!

I love this!  I have used codes before on certain days for a FREE redbox movie.  But, I didn't know there were codes you can use anytime.  Yay! I will be trying it this weekend.  

Image Detail

 You can use each code once per credit card.

Universal, always-working Redbox promo codes:

DVDONME
 BREAKROOM
REDBOX

Try one of these anytime and get a FREE movie.  Make sure you take it back that next day though so you are not charged ;)

You can also use the same code and just use a different credit/debit card next time!

Codes that work at Redbox kiosks at specific stores: 
DVDATWAG - Good at any kiosk at a Walgreens store.
DVDATKROG - Good at any kiosk at a Kroger affiliated store (for where I live it's Smiths)

And then after you have used all of these codes with all of your different debit/credit cards, you can visit Inside Redbox and the ones that have been working most recently will be shown. Before you go make sure to write down a handful of them because most are time-sensitive and you might get a dud, but one of them is bound to work!
 FREE movie night here we come!

Spring Cleaning Life

Here we go!  I've had this stinkin' chest cold for over a week...it's still lingering, but I am so in the mood to just get to spring cleaning.  Not only the house, but everything.  Organizing my life, my cleaning schedule, my kids chores, my workout plan.  Aren't you in the mood to spring clean life?? I've started a little vegetable garden and planted flowers.  Let's hope I don't kill them. :)

It's time to reboot my Cleaning schedule.  This is an older post of mine, but I really love it when I stick to this cleaning schedule.  I just feel so....clean & organized! A few things might have changed a little in my daily routine and such, but I pretty much need to get back to doing this daily.  And it starts Today!! Do you have a certain way you clean?

I'm also so revamped to start eating healthy again.  I know, I know....I say this all the time.  Believe me I feel it....ups and downs, eating healthy, trying to eat healthy, not eating healthy!! Ahhhh....I'm a normal person I guess! :) But, why do I keep going back to not eating so healthy when I know how good  I feel and how happy I am when I do eat healthy?  I'm not saying I eat horrible a lot of the times, but I just feel so much better when I really am eating mostly whole foods.  So, when I'm not...well, I feel it.  Last week since I haven't felt good I didn't workout and I guess I use food to try and lift my spirits and feel better.  So, at every chance I could I was taking the kids for ice cream, grabbing pizza for dinner since I didn't feel too good and didn't feel like cooking.  HA! All the stuff probably just made me feel worse.  Oh well! It's kinda funny, I do that every time I'm sick or injured.
I've also realized I can't restrict myself from certain foods.  If I really want something I'll have it.  Because when I restrict myself.  Later on I go on a binge.  You gotta have a treat every once in a while.  You gotta have your favorite meal sometimes.  But, 90% of the time I'm going to try and eat mostly whole foods, fruits & veggies, more protein, less sugar, drink more water every day!! Every morning I'm going to run on the treadmill to start the day off.  Continue cross fit of course, I feel horrible missing all last week.  I just keep visualizing how I want to look, how great I want to feel, the confidence I want to feel this summer wearing a swim suit.  That keeps me motivated.

Now to the kids chores.  My kids love their Marbles! It's been a good system to help good/bad behavior.  I feel like now that they are getting a little older we need to revamp their chores a bit and their good behavior jars.  I also want them to learn about earning money for the good work that they do.  I gotta figure out how to mix them all together: chores, behavior, earning money.....?? Still trying to figure out a great system for it all.  I saw this idea for younger kids that seems pretty good, but I still want to use our marble idea and our chore chart/family board in some way. I'll let you know when I figure it out.  Do you have any ideas or specific things that work with your kids? I would love to hear it. Maybe I'm trying to make it too complicated.  Hopefully I'll figure it out soon, my kids are slacking on their chores lately.

I'm feeling a little overwhelmed trying to reboot everything and also during my busy music teaching schedule....trying to write the program & get things ready for our recital, get registrations for the new fall classes, finish our lessons for the end of our semester.  Plus all other daily busy things of life, running the kids everywhere, dance practices, soccer practices, battling sicknesses.... bills, doctor appts, school volunteering, church calling responsibilities.  It's A LOT sometimes.  But, I just keep going & going one thing at a time.  It's going to be a busy May & June, hopefully after that I can take a breath. :)
