I'm constantly looking for quick and easy meals that are nutritious for our family and full of flavor.  But again, I need it to be quick.  While I am typically home, I do work from home most of the day, therefore, I'm still looking for fast, just like many working outside the home families.  A few months ago, Andrew asked me to make him shrimp fried rice.  I made a whole meal in addition to the rice and he looked so confused when he got home.  I asked what was wrong and he said that he typically just eats shrimp fried rice by itself and that I wouldn't have had to made an entire meal beside that.  SAY WHATT!?  The month after, I made fried rice with chicken. It was incredibly easy, ready in 30 minutes and I've never turned back.  It's on our meal list at least once a month. 

Coconut Lime Ginger Chicken

Growing up, I despised coconut anything.  Really, I have no idea way, and I'm so happy that I came out of the phase because now I'm obsessed with it.  The flavor is amazing whether in cooking or baking and while I have the baking down packed by now, I'm still learning about the best ways to cook dinner with coconut products.  I'm a huge fan of fried coconut shrimp, but I've been looking into healthier ways to use coconut milk in cooking without frying.  One of my dear friends always talks about making coconut lime chicken, so I took that and added a twist with the ginger and the taste was incredible.

JuJu Organics Salon - Philadelphia, PA


*Disclosure: We received complimentary service in exchange for this post.  Thoughts & opinions are our own. 

We were recently invited to JuJu Organics salon.  To be honest, I'd never heard of an organic salon and even though it's 30 minutes from our house, we decided to check it out! JuJu Organics is tucked along a quiet street in Philadelphia, but inside the atmosphere is nothing shy of a friendly neighborhood party.  There was a chalkboard sidewalk sign outside the store, where one side said Never Grow Up and the other side said Fall in Love with yourself!  I absolutely loved the positive affirmations of both.

I'll be VERY quick to admit that the thought of lice absolutely CREEPS me out!  Ewww, Gross, Stay away.  I'm praying I have a few more years before we have to start worrying about it ourselves, but I know for many of my friends, family, and readers with school-aged children, this is a very real issue that is current in their lives.

Why I Chose To VBAC

When I found out I was pregnant with my son in January 2008, I had nothing but excitement.  I was never a cautious mommy-to-be, even after the fact that he was conceived right after my miscarriage that previous December.  I always just felt that many things were out of my control and why worry about them.  Oh how I enjoyed being pregnant with Adam.  I was probably the happiest (and largest) pregnant woman you had ever seen.
