I'm still here!
I'm just SO distracted by Spring...I love how the weather has turned so beautiful all of a sudden.

I'll be back next week to blog some awesome stuff, but in the meantime, here's a preview!

  • I bought an AeroGarden and ordered a seed kit. This is going to be SO fun!
  • I have perfected my sourdough bread recipe and am working on a "breakfast bread" version.
  • I'm trying to figure out how to make soy yogurt using the crock pot and my dehydrator.
  • I'm getting back into sprouting seeds (to eat) and am looking into sunflower greens - yum!
  • I got a new mop for the hardwood floors that I totally need to rave about, it's amazing.
  • I've started Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred, and while I hate it, I also love it!

More to come soon, just stay with me!

Free $5 at - love free stuff!

Have you discovered the wonders of Sweet Almond Oil? If not, you really should. I've been using Sweet Almond Oil for a while now, and I keep finding new things to do with it. My skin loves this stuff, and I bet yours will too...unless you have a nut allergy, in which case it's probably not a good idea. ;)

But the real point of this post is to share a coupon code for $5 off at which is my newest favorite online "health food" store. They have SO much stuff on this website, so be sure to check it out. You can order even just a couple small things, use the $5 credit and only pay for shipping! Sweet. Better yet, click the link at the top of the page called FREE SAMPLES and choose as many free samples as you want (one of each will be free).

I have found lovely essential oils, raw sunflower seeds, a myriad of vitamins and supplements, gluten-free products, cleanse products and melatonin...just to name a few things they offer. But again, my all-time favorite is Sweet Almond Oil. Want to know what I use it for?? I'm glad you asked.

  • facial moisturizer, just a few drops
  • cuticle softener
  • hair smoother
  • eye make-up remover
  • sugar scrub base (white sugar, almond oil and essential oil....divine!)
  • bath oil
  • post-bath body moisturizer

I bet there are more ways to use this amazing, all natural stuff...what am I forgetting?

Oh yea, here's the CODE for $5 off your first order... KON547 and don't forget to add some freebies to your shopping cart! Happy Bargain Hunting!

March 1st


Well, ok, not really. But the first day of March always makes me feel like we've turned a corner and can really start to see the first signs that winter truly will be coming to an end soon. Since the Vernal Equinox isn't for a couple weeks, I can't get too excited about it actually being spring but I can see it on the horizon.

The snow is almost all melted (which in Central Indiana doesn't really mean much since the weather can turn on you in an instant), and I bet if I look closely there are some daffodils coming up already.

The temperatures are also steadily on the rise. Sure, it's only supposed to be 37 today...but the birds are singing this morning like I haven't heard in months! Surely, they know something wonderful is going to happen.

And lastly, today is a great day because I *think* (knock on wood) I am finally on the mend from a nasty sinus infection. It must be the pre-Spring air filling my sinuses with happiness! ;)

Happy March!
