When I'm 64... HAPPY EASTER!

I don't feel so good! My throat is so itchy and my body is achy. But I hope ya'll are feeling 10x better than I. Yesterday was Easter Sunday! How did you spend your day? We did our traditional morning mass, following by FOOD and more FOOD! lol The girls had a blast and mom sweated all day, haha.

If you might have noticed I haven't blogged or been on many social media sites in..... 40 days. So yup, on Ash Wednesday we all went to dinner after church and talked about what it meant to give up something for 40 days. We all wrote down on a piece of paper a few things we could do to improve our relationship with God and ourselves and what Jesus Christ "gave up" for the Lenten season.

Of course, my oldest said to give up my computer, yes, after a long day in my world, my girls always see me on my laptop. So I knew they would probably suggest that. I do need my laptop for work, so explained that wasn't an option, but we talked and decided "Social Media" was also a big problem with mommy." I did have some exceptions, like my weight loss group and business groups, and did fail at something like looking at my notifications or getting emails when someone would tag me in a post, so def, going to try this again next year!

Our middle daughter, Eliada, loved having cereal, for breakfast, snack and sometimes dinner! So that's what she agreed she would not do and have a more satisfying breakfast, and let me tell ya, she did great! For not really understanding what was going on, she mixed up her breakfast almost everyday. There was a few times that she asked for poptarts a few days in a row, but she also followed it with some fruit or glass of milk.

Yvette decided she wanted to only drink water for 40 days and she too did great. She did have tea and a few sips of coke a few times, but most of the time it was on accident. And she also wanted to read more as well as take at least 1 AR test each day, which again, she did great on! So proud of her. And actually, her reading grade for this six weeks actually went up as well.

Hubby.... no carbonated beverages and with only two slip ups, he did amazing. So proud of him. He wants to continue to not have soooo many drinks throughout the day like he use to. I think he also lost some weight, which is easy for him to do!

Holy week was great, made me feel refreshed and a good role model for my girls. We walked in the yearly procession on Good Friday and attended the first Passion play at our church and other events that our church had. And on Easter Sunday, we celebrated our savior (instead of the Easter Bunny). I hope even when I'm 64, that our daughters will keep these traditions alive and celebrate with their families.

Hope ya'll had a blessed Easter Sunday and continue to be thankful and keep your family close to Christ.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
