One thing that Jake has been trying to do is lose weight and get himself into shape. But we quickly realized that this is not the easiest of tasks to do. If you have ever tried to lose weight then you know how hard it can be. You exercise and watch what you eat but it is hard to watch portion control. Living in America we have grown up eating bigger portions then what is truly needed for our bodies to be healthy.

One thing that I love is books about nutrition and health. I love reading and learning about ways that I can easily make my family healthier. I also love adding new books to my kids library and I must say they have a lot of books. But I do not feel that having to many books is a bad thing for kids. Recently I received to great books from DK Books to add to my collection and the kids.

Do you have a hard time finding stocking stuffers for your kids? I know that this is one thing I struggle with every year. I hate filling the kids' stocking's with candy and cheap toys that will break quickly. I remember growing up that my Grandma would always get me a new toothbrush and toothpaste for my stocking. Yes that may seem weird to some but good dental hygiene should be a gift we give to all children.
One thing that I am a big fan of is personalized things for my home especially Christmas Ornaments! When I was little my Grandma would make a special Ornament for each of her grandchildren for her tree. Although the ornaments she made was just a colored bulb with our name and birth date on it, it meant a lot to us kids to have one because we knew they were made with love by Grandma. Over the past few years I wanted to start getting personalized ornaments for my families tree and Ornaments with Love is a wonderful place to get them!

One thing that I absolutely love to do is cook and bake. But one thing that I was missing was a good cutting board. I am picky when it comes to the types of products I use while cooking my food for my family. Now thanks to Carved Solutions I have a wonderful and beautiful cutting board. In my opinion it's almost to pretty to use.

Have you ever wished you could do something with your instagram photos other then just see them online? I know that I have taken some fun pictures through instagram but had no way to do anything with them. That problem is now a thing of the past thanks to pixtagram. With pixtagram you can take your photos from instagram and have them turned into magnets.

One thing that I love to do for the Holiday's is bake. I bake for my children, family and friends and everyone seems to have a different thing I make as their favorite. So when the Holiday's come around I usually spend days on end in the kitchen making everyone's favorites. But as long as everyone leaves happy because they got their favorites is all the thanks I need. I love to see everyone happy and enjoying their favorite baked treats.
Well I don't know about you, but I was super excited when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles came back. I grew up on them and I am happy that my boys can experience the "heroes in a half shell" too. I asked Bean, my oldest, which was his favorite turtle and it was, hands down, Donatello because he gets to use the bo as his weapon of choice.
