Simple and Free starts tomorrow!


Tomorrow kicks off my "Simple and Free" Social Experiment. Besides the Bible, this book has had such an impact on me. I am not only reading it; I am also listening to it on audiobook (Jen Hatmaker reading any of her books is seriously the best. She adds commentary, laughs and jokes. Its like listening to a friend.) 

So the rules for the next 30 days: Eat 7 foods for 30 days. Well, anyone who knows me I am quite the picky eater. My husband finds it very amusing that I completely cut out two food groups, fruits and vegetables. (Yes, I'm weird. I do like potatoes, peas and corn. Somehow I have managed to stay healthy all these years.) 

The seven foods I chose are: 

1. Turkey

2. Beans

3. Nuts

4. Rice

5. Cheese

6. Bread

7. Corn and/or peas

I will be drinking only water, tea and coffee. I would give coffee up, but you know, global pandemic. I'm giving up a lot but I think my family would appreciate me with coffee rather then without. It's not very pretty. I will be baking homemade bread as much as I can. I will be staying away from sugar, processed foods. The goal is to eat whole foods as much as we can. 

I will blog every few days how its going. I am so excited about the next 7 months of fasting. Over the next seven months, I will be fasting on food, clothing, possessions, media, waste and stress. I'm so excited for this adventure ahead and seeing where we can reduce consumption in our lives. Will you join me? I promise we will have some laughs along the way. 

I have to be honest here. I was going to start food month on May 1st but my daughters birthday is on May 27th and I really want to have some cake.

How did I get those eyelashes? You asked, I answered!

 So since I posted this picture yesterday on Facebook and Instagram, I received many questions about my lashes. They are called.... easbeauty 2020 Upgraded Magnetic Eyeliner and Eyelashes Kit, Magnetic Eyelashes with Eyeliner, False Lashes 5 Pairs with Tweezers, Easy to Wear  Today, they are a lightening deal on Amazon for $16.91! My lashes are basically non-existent. They are very, very blond and fine. All you do is apply the magnetic eyeliner close to your lashline, let it dry and then the lashes snap right on. Easy peasy! I first heard about these from the book club I am in, Jen Hatmaker Book Club. I have been as my son describes "Covid Mommy" since March 2020. Lately, I've needed something to just feel good. These lashes do it for me. Its a small thing that gives me happiness these days.  If you end up getting a pair, share of picture of yourself in these beauties!  Lots of love,  Jen

Book Review: Believe It: How to Go from Underestimated to Unstoppable

Believe It: How to Go from Underestimated to Unstoppable by Jamie Kern Lima My rating: 5 of 5 stars Book release date: February 23, 2021 View all my reviews Believe IT: How to Go from Underestimated to Unstoppable by Jamie Kern Lima was one of the most inspirational and honest books I have read in a very long time. I was fortunate to be part of the book launch team and read this book in advance. It was a page turner. I finished it in less than a day. I couldn't put it down. Jamie's story is a story of love, faith, perseverance, and believing in yourself when no one else does. Jamie believed in herself, her product and her company. She went from almost losing everything to getting her shot on QVC that changed the course of her life and so many other women's lives. She knew if she could get on QVC to showcase her makeup that it would sell. And it sold. Jamie believed in showing real women with real skin problems on TV. This was faced w

Turn Your Eyes (feat. Natalie Grant) // The Belonging Co

Y'all stop what you're doing and listen to this! What a beautiful song! This is an old hymn that I grew up listening to in church and one of my favorites. This version by the The Belonging Co. featuring Natalie Grant just stirs something in your soul. Natalie Grant is a powerhouse. Her voice is a voice of an angel.  We are enbarking on a year in what is something we never thought would happen in our lifetime....A global pandemic. Just think a year ago today what you were doing. I was taking my kids on a spring break road trip to visit family and friends. Little did we know that was the last trip we would take for awhile.  This past year has been hard on all of us. We have experienced life in a way we never thought was possible. Our essential workers have worked so hard this year. Parents have become teachers and teachers are doing double the work. Families have had to endure so much with social distancing and being unable to see each other for holidays. To all of the loved ones
