How to Make Easy Keto Brownies with Sugar Free Sprinkles

This post may contain affiliate links which means that if you click on something and purchase it, I will received a commission.  However, all opinions are my own. I also received product to facilitate this article. Who doesn't like brownies? I love a good brownie with walnuts.  My kids love brownies with sprinkles.  Everyone has their preference.  I love the keto way of life because it allows for sweets - in moderation and prepared specifically the keto way; sugar free. For now, I only eat keto friendly brownies.  And I have always stayed away from sprinkles because they are usually loaded with sugar and toxins.  I recently made Keto Cupcakes with Homemade Sprinkles.  But it was pretty time consuming to make the sprinkles and if you …

5 Inspirational Quotes for Mothers

5 Inspirational Quotes for Mothers

Us mothers have a full, rich, chaotic, funny, silly, stressful, interesting, tiring life.  Being a mother is the best blessing I have ever had.  I never really wanted to be a mother. I was a Mother to Three Fur Babies. But after I put my dog down and turned 39 years-old I felt something missing in my life.  I wasn't ready for another dog.  I wasn't even ready for children but I knew that at 39, if it was going to happen, now was the time to make it  happen.  Although I was told that I probably would not get pregnant for other reasons, including my age, I was able to get pregnant within 6 months.  Unfortunately, I had a miscarriage.  Within another six months I got …

POKÉMON Detective Pikachu is in Theaters Today!

POKÉMON Detective Pikachu is in Theaters Today!

We got to see the premier of POKÉMON Detective Pikachu on Tuesday and it was worth the wait.  My sons have been talking about it for months. I honestly know nothing about POKÉMON except that I find the trading cards in my couch and under my bed or stashed in secret hiding places.  The boys are crazy for POKÉMON.  But I pretty much went into the movie blind. Detective Pikachu (RYAN REYNOLDS) turned out to be my favorite character.  I loved it! Detective Pikachu kept me on my toes and the boys were on the edge of their seat during the whole movie. It was suspenseful and full of comedy adventure. Ryan Reynolds stars in the first-ever live-action Pokémon adventure as Pikachu, the iconic face of the global …

Why Greece is a one of the Cheapest Countries to Visit in Europe

Why Greece is a one of the Cheapest Countries to Visit in Europe

Greece is probably my favorite country to visit in Europe.  The fact that I am half Greek probably makes me bias. I grew up visiting my Yia Yia every summer in Glyfada, Athens, a beautiful beach town on the outskirts of Athens.  I can still hear the watermelon truck passing by during our siesta and feasting on it after a long day at the beach.  To this day, the smell of Coppertone takes me back to my youth, playing with my cousins on the beach. I have the best memories of visiting the islands and spending time with my family. Best Time to Visit A lot of people visit during the summer months, but it is hot.  Not to worry, the beautiful beaches will cool you down! April …

Travel Essentials for a Family Road Trip

I received products to facilitate this article, however, all opinions are my own.  Also, there may be affiliate links in this post which means that if you click on the link and purchase something, I may receive commission. We took a 8 hour long trip to California last month and the last time we did a cross country road trip from Florida to Arizona we depended on snacks like Munchpak, My Keto Snack Box, and Lucky Bars to get us through that week long road trip.  We also used Precidio Drink Box's and Snack Box's. This time our road trip was filled with mostly the same essentials! Precidio Drink Box and Snack Box We don't go anywhere without our Precidio Drink Box. There's nothing worse than carrying around a heavy thermos.  The …

5 Amazing DIY Crafts for Mother's Day

Mother's Day is coming up and today I was invited to probably my last Mother's Day Tea for a while.  My five year-old invited me to his preschool for some fun.  The teachers set up craft stations with bracelet making, potted plant making, and all kinds of fun stuff for us to do together.  It was followed by a group song and a DIY gift that I will treasure forever.  It was such a special day and my son was excited about it for days!   So, I thought I'd do this quick round up of my favorite DIY crafts for Mother's Day.  These are truly the cutest!

5 Essentials for a DIY Garbage Disposal Cleaning

5 Essentials for a DIY Garbage Disposal Cleaning

This is a Sponsored Post for Mr. Rooter Plumbing.  However, all opinions are my own. Who knew at my age I would be learning how to clean my garbage disposal? I started ironing at 45 years-old so I can certainly learn how to clean my drain at 48, right? Unclogging drains, though, is not one of my strong points. I am typically the person that clogged the drain... I was a late bloomer with everything.  Marriage, kids, and now cleaning.  I managed on my own for many years with bleach and Windex.  They were my  best friends. I'm not sure if it was the Greek in me that gave me that idea or Forensic Files, but somehow I knew to use bleach. So, whenever anything went wrong in …

How to do the 3 Day Keto Egg Fast

This post is sponsored by Happy Egg Co, and all opinions are my own. Spring break came and went and so did my healthy diet.  So, it's time to get back on track and throw myself back into my Keto way of life.  I always feel so much better and clear headed when I do Keto.  It isn't a fad or quick weight loss diet, for me it's a lifestyle. Keto is not as easy as the media makes it out to be; so, if you've never done it, do your research first.  The basic concept of the Keto diet is to consume foods high in fat (healthy fats) and low in carbs. I won't get technical and talk about the specifics like macro nutrient percentage splits, …

5 DIY Toy Story Crafts and Printables

We just got back from Disneyland where we had a Woody sighting!  Toy Story 4 is all I can think about! I can't wait to see the new toy, Forky, who insists he is NOT a toy! Forky is a spork-turned-craft-project and is convinced he doesn't belong in Bonnie's room.  But we all know that everything in the world has a purpose, including craft project toys!   I thought it would be fun to do a quick round up of Toy Story DIY crafts and printables.
