I know I haven't really post much here lately as it has been super crazy on my end. I am working on getting all my pictures before and after my laser vein surgery in order for ya'll to see. My leg looks so much better and feels great! I am not in pain from them no more! They thought some of my veins might still bulge due to the elasticity being shot after bulging so long that I might have to have shots! But I didn't! 

I promise I will get those up very soon as you will be amazed at how great it looks now. It's not done yet as I got 3 little bb looking things on my leg but he said that will take a couple more months before it will go away. But it is where the vein has died. 

Today I am super sore from going to the gym and working my legs hard. Oh my who knew I would be sore for 2 days and it is worse today then yesterday! But my object is to get my legs back to looking sexy again! 

Last week my grandfather fell and had to have hip surgery! And today is his 85th birthday! I am just thankful he is still around as I only have one set of grandparents left. 

Then on top of all that I have been working on costumes for the kids are in another school play which is coming up April 13th! So, I have been running non stop it seems since this time last year and looking at the calendar we won't be slowing down till maybe if I am lucky mid-june! 

So, you ever feel like a chicken with your head cut off? I do all the time! And our newest edition Jojo started crawling last month and now she got teeth too! She trying to walk now! This girl is never slowing down and I can't get over how fast she is growing up! This up coming month I get another teenager! My oldest daughter is turning 13 on the 12th! Boy do I feel old! That will give me 3 teenagers! Yes, 3 teenagers! Where does the time fly?

Krill Oil Review and Giveaway!

I recently got to try Everest Nutrition Krill Oil! You probably thinking Krill Oil what's that? I was too! 

Everest Nutrition Krill Oil is oil harvested from antarctic krill, a shrimp like crustacean that lives deep in the ocean. Scientists and doctors have discovered that ingesting this oil can have amazing affects on your body including a stronger heart, pain-free joints, a better mood, lower cholesterol, easier menstruation and overall better health.

Krill Oil is a miraculous discovery from the deep pure waters of Antarctica that literally beats the pants off fish oil. When tested head to head by an independent laboratory that this supplement was found to be 54x more powerful in antioxidant activity than fish oil!

They have tons of studies that show all different effects of Krill Oil but let me tell you how I felt after taking this for a month. I have more energy! Which is a big plus as I have been on the going so much since last year April that we haven't even slowed down. I haven't been as moody during my monthly or crampy like I usually am. Another great thing is I am not burping up fish oil taste. Oh that was horrible when I was taking fish oil. 

But after taking Everest Nutrition Krill Oil I won't be going back to fish oil that is for sure!

Now one lucky reader will win a bottle of Everest Nutrition Krill Oil.

Great Baby Products for 2012

Being a mom of 7, with our newest edition fixing to be 7 months I am always on the outlook for great baby products.

Here are some that I have ran across that I think are up their. These are in no certain order.

1. For first time moms or any mom for that matter Itzbeen baby care timer! It is a must have. I have to say I wish I had one of these when I first started having kids almost 14 years ago. 

2. I have been eyeing this Baby Jogger City Mini GT Double stroller. I looks really nice and would be a great addition to anyone that has 2 little ones as well as twins! I personally hate regular strollers as they just don't roll good and get hung up. So, I always opt for jogger strollers. 

3. If you plan to breastfed and have to go back to work or just want to have a stock pile I would definitely have to say check out the Medela Freestyle! I have always wanted one of those but instead I have a Pump In Style that I love just as dear. 

4. I have been in a big debate over a new car seat for my little one! It's a huge toss up between the Garco Nautilus and the Recaro Prosport. They both have great qualities and look really good!

5. I have to say another of my favorite is when it comes to baby food I have to say I love those baby foods like Plum Organics and Happytot pouches where you can attach a spoon and feed straight from it! What a convince for when you are out and about and less mess too!

6. Oh and a must have is a bottle warmer! I have a Munchkin Deluxe! I love it as it heats the bottle nice and even. Not only that it also heats up baby food and sterilizes pacifiers!

These are just a few of the ones I think are must haves! What are some of yours?

March Hoops Appetizer Ideas!

With football season and the Big Game behind us it is time to get in gear for March Hoops!

With that in mind I decided on a yummy snack for my guest!

I have already tried out several. Here is one of the yummy creations.

I like making this yummy dip.

I take 2 lbs of ground turkey and brown it. I then put that in my crock pot and add 1 package of Velveeta and mix it up good. Then I add 2 tubs of mild Wholly Salsa and stir it in. I let it cook on low for about 2 hours checking on it in between to make sure nothing is sticking or burning.

Also if you use a slow cooker liner will help prevent having a messy clean up! 

I also like to add 2 cans of black beans to change it up from time to time. I use mild salsa because my little ones love eating this! 

Another one of my favorites is a Taco Ring.

2 8oz cans of crescents
1 lb of ground turkey
2 cups of shredded cheese
1 package of taco seasoning
1 small onion

First off preheat oven to 375. You don't have to add onion I do because I love onion. Dice the onion and add it to the ground turkey and brown it together. Gives the meat a good flavor. After brown drain and add taco seasoning with 2 tsp of water and cheese mix well. Then on a round pizza pan roll out your crescents and separate. Arrange triangle in a circle with wide ends overlapping in center and points toward outside. There should be a 5 inch hole in the center. 

Scoop meat mixture evenly onto widest ends of dough at center of ring. Bring points in and over and tuck underneath the wide end. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

You can add whatever other garnish you want. I love Guacamole and one of my favorites is Wholly Guacamole
