A Simple Amish Christmas

ImageI was lucky enough to finally get the chance to sit down and read A Simple Amish Christmas by Vannetta Chapman. I read this as a part of the Abingdon Press Christmas Blog Tour.

Here’s a synopsis written by Vannetta Chapman about A Simple Amish Christmas: 

Will Annie find acceptance in the Amish community she left behind? Annie Weaver always planned to return home, but the 20-year old RN has lived in Philadelphia for three years now. As her time of Rumschpringe is about to come to an abrupt end, bringing for Annie an overwhelming sense of loneliness. She returns home and finds herself face-to-face with a budding romance with an Amish farmer and Annie has several important choices to make.

I really enjoyed finally getting a chance to open this book up. Earlier this month I reviewed a book The Christmas Quilt that comes after this one, so it left me yearning to know the back story behind Annie. In A Simple Amish Christmas Annie goes away on Rumschpringe and while away receives her RN. During her time away from the Amish, Annie is staying with her aunt and lands a job at a local hospital. When Annie’s dad gets hurt in an accident she goes home to care for him. Throughout her stay at home Annie ends up spending a lot of time with a man who is helping take care of her dad as well. Does this turn into a romance? Does she spend her trip home trying to prove she is able to take care of her father on her own? These are questions that you get to find the answer to throughout this awesome book. I was so excited for the ending, even though I had some hints thanks to the second book. 

I would absolutely recommend this, as well as it’s counterpart!

Kidecals… CrAzY Durable!

Are you tired of “permanent” marker rubbing off? washed sticky residue? having to buy two different types of labels; one for clothes, the other for lunch and school stuff?

Well I was too! So when I had an amazing opportunity to review a product called kidecals, I did.

HORRAY!                                     Bonus: super cute packaging.

I would describe them as labels that can go anywhere. They are safe for the dishwashers, washing machines, dryers, the whole sha-bang. They have them for adults, for kids, for boys, for girls, for cans, mac keyboards and more!

Kidecals has this excerpt on their website, which is a more formal definition of what Kidecals are…

“Our unique kid name labels stick to any surface – including clothes – and are waterproof, dishwasher & washing machine safe! Stick these personalized kids name labels & kids name tags on easily lost items such as water bottles and mittens so they get quickly returned! With over 80 decal and label designs to meet trends and interests, there is a style of personalized labels for everyone – even grownups! KIDECALS makes custom labels for birthdays, weddings, or other events. A great way to personalize a party!

We also offer hand-painted kids wall decals for an instant mural in any room of the house. These PVC free decals are removable and repositionable.”

I have to say these really are fantastic. I have tried a lot of labels. I literally almost went into full blown panic when I couldn’t find them this morning to label some new lunch stuff. I also have these cute little labels adorned to a whole bunch of clothing and bags.

Now, the best part of all…..

I have a discount code for all my readers!!!

Feel the Burn

Lately I have made fitness my goal and pretty much my main hobby other than my TV and reading addictions hahaha These past two nights I have made sure I made it to the gym with my friend C!

Yesterday we hit up cardio for a good 30 minutes before switching over and doing Body Flow (If you aren’t sure what this is… it’s a mixture of tai chi and yoga. It involves core training, balance, yoga poses along with tai chi movements (warm up and cool downs, transitions) all in all it’s a great work out for the total body. I always feel totally relaxed when I leave flow which is amazing because it’s followed by at least a day of muscle soreness which means that I stretched it good 😉 

Tonight we went and mainly did a workout of my choosing and only 45 minutes versus the 2 hour one the night before! We hit up cardio which I decided to do at an incline tonight switching up between forward and backwards at an average speed of 4. I’d occasionally amp it up to 6 when going forward in short spurts to make sure my endurance is coming along! After cardio I switched over to hit up the stretching area so I could do the core/planking section of flow on my own. What a great work out that is for the core..I love the pain I feel when breathing hahahahahahah not. At least I know I’ll have a flat tummy at the end of it! Once C was done her cardio she met me over and we headed over to the weights where We just focused on arms before doing wall sits before we left. I still need to do my butterflies, but overall I am happy that I am sticking with this!

Tomorrow is my first day back to work in 2 days and I have to say I am kind of excited. It gets me out of the house and really mixes my day up. School is starting soon and we have that to worry about as well as the fact that BEX IS POTTY TRAINING WOOO!

BUT 

That is another blog post for another day ❤

Sweet Dreams everyone!

WOOOOOWEEE!Image I just finished my first Zumba class and I must say… What a workout!? I took the class at my local gym I just talked about joining in my  Body Combat post. 🙂 It’s a fun mix of dancing and aerobics in my opinion provides a real total body workout! Although I must say if you were a fly on the wall I probably would not look like I enjoyed it as much as I did. Picture your five year old in their first recital….. that’s what I looked like, but probably a lot more stressed and a little constipated hahahaImage No, but in all honesty some of the steps were really easy to learn while others left me turning in the wrong direction and shimmying my way right into someone else! 😉 Overall it was a blast. I am tired, but not sore (for now) or too tired to go about the rest of my night! I came home ate some dinner and fed the kids. Jared was off to poker & that left me to put the kiddos to bed and day dream about Body Flow tomorrow. Which is supposed to be a mix of thai chi, pilates, and yoga! Should be a great way to start my day and week!!! Luckily, the kids will be in pre-school so I will have time to go take a class and study for my test later tomorrow!!! 🙂

Have you ever done Zumba?! If so, DO YOU LOVE IT?! Let me know what you think!!
