Veggie Buds Club - August




Veggie Buds Club  - August is Sweet Corn 

Very impressed with Veggie Buds Club, you never really know when getting into a subscription type plan but this Veggie Club is perfect for 3 - 7 year olds and honestly I love it too. It's educational, hands on and comes with everything you need (neatly packaged) to complete each activity. It's also great for one on one time with your child and/ or for quiet time/alone time. August was Sweet Corn ! Cant wait for next month. 100% Recommended

Overnights, mornings alone and sparkling wine




Table : End of August Sadness





Favorite face wipes right now, I use them before bed and right before my workout in the morning.



























Tip: To ripe Green Tomatoes place them in newspaper in a dark place for 2 days, check on them until they're what you're looking for.

The Green Life


 UPDATES ON VEGGIES

Everything is doing well, the peppers esp, with all 5 plants there is at least 30 peppers. Beans are continuing to multiply :P

Planning on making tomato sauce to freeze tomorrow with most of the tomatoes :)
Now that I know a little more, next year will hopefully be more organized lol and I'll be able to focus on the veggies I love to grow. 

Over 50 Cherry Tomatoes !!



Today's Picks





There was soooooooooo much lettuce, I grew 3 different kinds and I think Ill do the same next year 

Note: I no longer have pink in my hair :P

Saturday Adventures


On my table this Saturday morning

- New Eddie Bauer Backpack - awesome, waterproof and so cute - to be honest I kinda use it as a purse now lmao but I'm looking forward to going camping with it this July. http://www.eddiebauer.com/

- The birdhouse is one of my husbands fathers day gifts :) Micheal's has lots of great ideas that are affordable.

- Signed the little one up for this Summers Reading program which I think is going to be great for her before she starts preschool this September. We meet once a week, unfortunately we wont be making the launch party which is today. 

- Bamboo , has to be somewhere in the house. It's one of my favorite things to add to any room. 
(Bamboo has become fashionable as decoration for the home, as well as to give a sophisticated touch to our living rooms, but it also has become popular to attract positive energy. It is said that bamboo integrates growth and water, offering purity, transparency and life. Having this plant in our home will bring us a feeling of comfort, calmness and shoo away envy.)

Update on Greenhouse : Tomatos and Peppers are doing really well but I cant keep up with the Lettuce, there's only so much you can eat per day lol

JUNE




          Renovations started last Monday, very excited that it is done :P Picking through paint samples can be a serious decision and a bit stressful ahaha

 Now the painters are here, we picked the 4th color from the bottom on the paint slip on the right.the warm brown/beige  :) I cant wait to start putting the downstairs back together.  Looking to put a sectional around the fireplace while having the other half of the first floor to be the gym. 

I'm going to be doing the finishing touches on the laundry room later today when the painters are gone. I found some really really rustic pieces to go with the turquoise and white set up.





Training again which I have missed soooooo much. The love is back and nothing makes me happier to get back to that part of my life. 


‘Cause sometimes you just feel tired, feel weak
And when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up
But you gotta search within you
And gotta find that inner strength
And just pull that shit out of you
And get that motivation to not give up
And not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face, and collapse
