A Simple Way To Healthy Up

Recently I saw a great conversion chart that showed you how to use Chobani greek yogurt to replace some of the fattening ingredients in recipes. I can’t wait to be able to replace things like oil, sour cream, etc. when I’m cooking.

Here’s the conversion for those wondering:

They also have some FANTASTIC recipes on the site.

I can’t wait to make these Mixed Berry FroCHO Pops. They look so cool and creamy and refreshing for the summer.

Have you experimented with greek yogurt? What recipes have you made? We’d love to hear

An Early Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dad’s out there! If you are like me, finding a gift to say “thanks for joining me on this crazy parenting ride” isn’t always so easy.

This is where Dollar Shave Club comes in. Imagine, a great and practical gift coming to your door each month for a buck!! Or if you want to “upgrade” you can do the $6 or $9 month program. You get the free razor (ha!) and 4-5 cartridges a month depending on your plan. Imagine your husband having fresh blades each month. No more knicking and walking around with little blobs of toilet paper stuck to his face. Or even worse, running out of blades. Throw in the shave butter too. He’ll thank you (and, if you are really smart, you can borrow some for smooth soft legs).

I ordered this for my husband and he was thrilled. The first box came really fast (less than a week). (If you’re saying “hey, this is great, but I can’t get it by Sunday” they have an e-gift.) The nice thing is, if you aren’t satisfied, you can cancel. Or if your husband has a light beard, you can slow your shipments down. Super easy company to work with. And their videos aren’t half bad either.

Hope this helps you if you are in a Father’s Day gift bind. If not, keep it in mind for birthday’s, holidays, any day…

Beyond the Fridge

If your house is a typical house, then you have LOTS of artwork that comes home with your budding Picasso’s. After a while, you run out of space to hang it around the house (or maybe you aren’t into hanging it all over your house in the first place). I have plenty of things hanging off my fridge in addition to cotton ball sheep: my calendar…school schedule…coupons… etc. and space is a premium. When new things came in, I tried to throw old things out. Sometimes I got away with it. Mostly I got busted. Nothing screams “mom of the year” more than a tear streaked little girl standing over the trash can boo hoo’ing.

Oddly enough, while doing laundry it hit me. My washing machine and dryer are all metal (and boring looking) and would be the perfect place to hang all that extra artwork. I quickly grabbed a few pieces and some magnets and hung them right up. I have to say, it certainly brightens up my laundry room. Now, if only it could make doing laundry more exciting!
