🍂🧡Fall Camping🧡🍂

Fall camping is my favorite time of the year to go camping!

Helping daddy hook upmuddy faces,babywearing,matching hats made around the campfire,hiking in the woods,playing carbles,playing with trucks,all of the beautiful leaves,breakfast on the grill,walking with daddy,playing with big sisters,time together,snow❄️(this really never happens but so cool that it did),

and of course the packing up and heading home for the last time of the season🧡

Bitter sweet ~ until next year🧡

Do you camp? When is your favorite time to camp? We are in central MN, where are you?😉

💜Camper Remodel💜

I love to camp!

We recently upgraded our 2000 camper to a 2001 camper(I know big jump 😉) with a slide out. We have so much more space and everyone has a place to sleep. When you have a family of 10 this can be a challenge.

One thing I didn’t totally love was how dark everything seemed. So Pinterest to the rescue, I got some ideas and with a few of my kids help we totally revamped the camper and now I am in love! It is totally like a sanctuary for me😊 we just have to redo the flooring and it will be like a completely new camper 😃👍🏻

Check out the before(it was already being torn apart so excuse some of the mess😬)…

And now the afters(seriously in love💕💕💕)…

We have a new light colored couch(actually it’s a click clack, so it fold easily like a futon, so much easier than the old couch and it fits the new lighter colors).

Have you ever remodeled a camper? Would you consider it?

We are truly in love with the transformation it has made💜

Breathe Roll-on

Tis the season for respiratory support.

What do you use?

My go to is my Breathe Roll-on.

It is a combo of frankincense and cardamom 🙂

For babies(under 12 months) I use 2 drops of cardamom and 2 drops of frankincense in a 10 ml bottle with a carrier oil of your choice.

I up this recipe for ages 1 and up to 5 drops of cardamom and 5 drops of frankincense in a 10 ml roller bottle with your choice of carrier oil.

I love this blend for supporting our respiratory system.

Happy Monday!

God bless!

Cleansing…

So I decided to do this 5 day cleanse.

It is a gentle cleanse. It has a lot of health benefits. I am still able to eat a few snacks(some fruits/veggies/nuts/broth)a day.

You wake up and take the Digest & Cleanse(super gentle- definitely don’t feel like I am running to the bathroom or anything). You wait 30-60 min and have your Balance Complete shake/smoothie. Add some oils to this to add some fun flavors. Then you have a snack. You continue to repeat this process for lunch and supper. Drink lots of water.

I really have not been hungry but to be honest- I like to eat.

I love food.

Not bad food but food.

I also know that I eat when I am not hungry.

Why? Because food tastes good and I love food.

It is a struggle. I can be totally unaware of what I am eating.

So going forward- food? Yes!

Tracking my food? Yes

I feel like this will hold me accountable.

Do you love food?

 

God bless!
