the winner of the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle is...

The winner of the Ultimate Healthy Living bundle giveaway is:

Melanie Pike September 12, 2014 at 8:34 PM

I think the first book I'd read would be either "The Nourished Metabolism" or "Essentials of Essential Oils". Both would be so beneficial! As would winning this bundle, as we have 6 people (4 adults and 2 little ones, 3 years and 15 months) living under our roof, with one income overall. Tough to afford stuff like this otherwise. Blessings and thanks for the opportunity to win!


Congrats Melanie!! Please email me with your info! :D



If you didn't win, the UHLB is still available through Monday night at 11:59! :)

    our BIG news + win an Ultimate Healthy Living bundle

    I've been waiting SO long to tell you this news!! :) Here is a picture- see if you can guess what is happening at our house this week:

    I can't believe I'm showing you this. We must be good friends.
    No, we aren't filming an episode of Hoarders at our house... ;)

    We're moving next week!! :) I have so much to catch you up on, but we sold our 1895 house last month, and Lord-willing, we are moving our family of 7 next week. It's been crazy-town around here, and boxes are everywhere. I wouldn't say we're the most organized movers, but luckily that pic was all the attic storage that was in the middle of being sorted out. It looked slightly better by the time I went through it all. ;)

    The main problem with going through everything you own? You find random things like homemade ornaments from your senior year of high school:


    I've let go of so much junk this week, but I couldn't bear to throw that one out. :) I have so much to tell you, but not much time to do it as we are in the big crunch to finish by next week! I even have lots of posts to show you of our completed house before we took everything down and boxed it away. :( It's a good move though- we are very excited about what's to come. We aren't moving far, but I'll tell you all that later! :)

    I'm very excited to share our big news with you{and the fact that we're almost done packing, Lord-willing!}. :) I cannot wait to get back into a clean house and start cooking real food again!! I hope by next weekend all this will be over. :)

    BUT- to celebrate our exciting news this weekend, I'm giving away one copy of the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle- and if you're the lucky winner, you get all of these ebooks and courses for free on Sunday! :)



    AND!! the lucky giveaway winner also gets $200 in bonuses on top of all those books and courses:
    The bonuses:
    ** a bottle of Healthy Mouth Blend from OraWellness,
    ** a baltic amber bracelet from Sweetbottoms Boutique
    **a starter culture from Cultures For Health.
    ** gift sets from Made On Skin Care Products and Homegrown Collective.

    There are virtual goodies, too – a 4-month membership to StayAtHomeYoga.com and a 3-month premium membership to meal planning service Tradishen. And as if all that weren’t enough, there are also $15 gift certificates for TheJoyfulGiraffe.com, Strawesome.com and Trilight Health. {There is a nominal shipping charge for many of the bonuses, based on each company’s standard shipping rates, and is usually $3-5.}

    After all this moving business, I'm totally going to nab some time alone this weekend and read an ebook or two from my bundle. ;) {Ha!}

    the contest is closed*

      family, food, and one negative side effect

      Back on Labor Day weekend {forever ago now?}, my brother Josh and sister-in-law Cayse came down from Arkansas to stay for a few days. They're extremely awesome people and we miss them like crazy, so we soaked up every moment we had together after not seeing them for 9 months. In fact, we enjoyed seeing them so much, I totally forgot to take any pictures with them. :( But I did get one shot I was very happy about...

      We played washers one afternoon, and Noah needed to get one washer in the center pipe of the box- a major long shot. It was never going to happen, and then... he got it in the center!!!


      It was so cool. :) I can't remember if it won the game, but it was crazy fun. :) I can't even believe I got that shot of him getting that shot. :D

      Zaner's getting around these days. He's standing on his own, but mostly resorts to this frog position to get from place to place: 


      After the family left, we went back to school as usual. The boys made their first loaves of bread for science:


      And here were the results of their experiment:


      I love homeschooling. :) I love experiments that involve my belly. :)

      Although there's one potential side effect of being a homeschool mom I'm not so sure about: 


      Accidentally carrying your toothpaste to the car for no good reason. :)

      Or, I guess that might be a side effect of being a mom


      It was a good trade though. Those brain cells were going to die someday anyway. ;)

      When was the last time you accidentally carried something you didn't need with you? Or washed a hammer in the laundry? hahah!

      Have you ever played washers? Is it a southern thing? 
      Either way it's so much fun!

      Have you made bread lately? Any good recipes?
      We made this recipe and love it, but I'm always up for new ones! I really want to make some rosemary garlic bread since it's almost fall. :)
