Well Yes! To A Stronger, Healthier, Happier Life

A Story of Challenge and Personal Determination.

 

There is something beautiful about a person who is confident, positive, and happy despite any struggles and challenges they may face. This type of person is an inspiration and encouragement to others with their strength and determination.

It is a mindset, one they live by day-by-day. One that starts with making good choices. Good choices such as eating deliciously crafted food, with real nutritious ingredients like Well Yes!® Soup. Good choices that inspire Moments of Yes!

 

Today, I’d like to share one such Moment of Yes!

My daughter, Rory, was born with a mitochondrial disorder — an energy metabolism disorder. What does that mean? Well, basically, she doesn’t always have the energy to make her body function properly. Because of this, she spent a lot of time in and out of the hospital while growing up, and that meant she missed a lot of schooling.

School Is A Challenge

The lowest point of her illness came when she was in the sixth grade as she spent six months in the hospital. She was at a children’s hospital, so that meant she could get some sort of schooling. But here is the rub, to qualify for schooling, your admission must last for two weeks, then your schooling may begin. Once discharged in the hospital’s computer system, even if immediately readmitted, your two-week waiting period begins all over again. Just think how crazy that is for chronically ill kids.

Well, during this six months in the hospital, they would try to get Rory home and discharge her. Sometimes we didn’t even leave the hospital room before being readmitted, others we’d get part way home before turning around, and a couple of times we made it home for a few hours before returning. That meant her schooling was constantly disrupted, and then you have to take into account the fact that she was gravely ill and not up to school as well.

Once Rory’s health stabilized somewhat, she qualified for medical home teaching through special education at the public school. They promised us that she would be able to achieve her high school diploma, after all, she had until she reached 21 years of age. It was important to me, but more importantly, the high school diploma was important to Rory. She is a smart girl; she could do the work and accomplish her goal.

Fighting To Make Dreams Come True

Of course, receiving only 2-hours of teaching 2-days a week, makes for slow progress, but that is all the California school district allows. As she turned seventeen, the school district suddenly changed their tune about Rory getting her diploma. They wanted her to take the test for her GED and move on her way. Her teacher was appalled, I was upset, and Rory was staunch in her decision that a GED was not acceptable to her. She was determined to earn her high school diploma!

With Rory leading the charge, we persevered. She earned her high school diploma! It was a fantastic and emotional day, a definite Moment of Yes!

Today, Rory attends a local college where she works hard and has attained membership in the Honors Society, Phi Theta Kappa. Can we say, “Proud Mama?” Well Yes!

Rory sips her favorite flavor, Tomato Carrot Bisque, from our vintage Campbell’s Soup mug.

  • Glue Stick
  • Colored Pencils, Markers, Crayons, etc.
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Bone Folder (or another flat edge)
  • Paper Cutter (helpful, but optional)

Directions:

  1. Print your choice of pre-colored or color-your-own Halloween shapes.

  2. Cut the cardstock for all the baskets you will be making.

  1. On the cut out Basket card stock, measure in 1/2 inch from the long edges on each side. Draw a line with a pencil, then score each pencil line with a bone folder or other flat-edge.
  2. Fold the scored long edges inward.

  1. Cut notches into the 1/2 inch folded edges to make it easier to fit the basket onto the shapes.
  2. Lay the notched basket cardstock flat and place glue on notches, both edges.
  3. Fold the notches to a right angle so the glued sides are on the outside of the basket.
  4. Attached glued notches to a pair of matching Halloween-themed shapes in a U-type shape, so there is an opening at the top. You will be able to move and adjust the notches to fit each shape as needed. Make sure that your shapes are turned the same way with the flat edge at the bottom.
  5. Let glue set.
  6. Dab glue on both ends of the handle, and attach to the top inside of the basket cardstock. Let glue set.

  1. Print a BOO Card for your basket.

School Year Tips To Shine With Success

This post, School Year Tips To Shine With Success, has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MomentsShineWithWindex #CollectiveBias

Shine with success this school year with great tips: first day of school photo ideas, organization charts, homework station ideas, and free printables.

 

School Year Tips To Shine With Success

Make Moments Sparkle

 

Can you believe it? Back-to-school is here! This is always a special and hectic time for families with school-age kids, even when they are heading off to college (Ha! Maybe more so). But, through the years I have learned a thing or two, and now I am going to share them with you.

These ideas for a successful school year are easy to implement and change up to meet your needs. Be creative! I even created a few FREE PRINTABLES that you can download. My hope is that you will find these ideas helpful and fun.

First Day of School Photo Ideas:

The first day of school means PICTURES! So, be prepared, grab your Windex® Original Glass Cleaner and make moments shine. You definitely don’t want grubby fingerprints on windows in the background.

Give these creative and easy ideas a try.

  • Use Chalk Markers to write and draw on glass or chalkboard.

I did this with Rory this year — college bound. We have pictures from every school year of the kids in front of our car or truck. It is a nice way to look back and remember what life was like at that moment in time, including our ride.

A couple of really nice things about using chalk markers on the windows — they are easy to write with and very easy to clean with Windex® products, check it out…

Clean your windows first. Windex® Original Glass Wipes work great for this.

Draw and Write on your windows to make your moments shine. Then, it is easy to clean up with the Windex® Original Glass Cleaner spray. The spray helps loosen up the dried chalk. Watch how easy…

  • Use Sidewalk Chalk and draw a large number for the grade your child is entering on the driveway. Decorate the number with style and personal flair. Then, have your child sit in the number or next to it for the photo.
  • Make a small pennant banner that your child can hold for the picture. Write or glue the words: First Day of School, 1st Grade, 2017, or whatever you want to say to create a special memory.
  • Frame a printable and have your child hold it for the picture. You can download and personalize the FREE PRINTABLE I created just for you.

Click to Download the First Day of School Printable

Remember, be camera-ready with Windex® Original Glass Cleaner or Windex® Original Glass Wipes.

Then, take advantage of this fabulous OFFER: Buy 2 Windex® products and get $20 to shop at Shutterfly®. This is a limited time offer. Disclaimer: Offer valid 7/15/17 – 12/1/17. Visit here for terms and conditions. Notice those dates, you can buy more Windex® products and use the offer for Halloween and Thanksgiving photos too!

 

Get Organized for the New School Year:

Start the school year with a plan. Children do very well with a schedule, it gives them a sense of purpose and a semblance of security. If they know what to expect next, you will have an easier time getting them to accomplish it. Schedules help set your child up for success!

  • Set Schedules
  • Morning: Wake up time, eat breakfast, brush teeth, get dressed, leave for school, etc.
  • After School: Have a snack, do homework, play outside, eat dinner, quiet reading time or studying, take a bath, pack your backpack for the next day, set out your shoes and clothes for school, etc.
  • Bed Time: Have a set time your child is supposed to go to bed. Making sure your child gets enough sleep each night and is well-rested will help to ensure they have a good learning day a school.
  • Have a specified place for backpacks and other items to be placed. If you are not searching all over the house for things your morning will go much smoother. Less stress, less fighting, and arguing is better for everyone’s day.

I have created a couple Organization Charts that will help your child stay on task between getting home from school and going to bed. You can download these FREE PRINTABLES. You have a choice of two different color schemes.

Click to Download I’m Ready For School Organization Chart – yellow

 

Click to Download I’m Ready For School Organization Chart – pink

 

Put this chart on your refrigerator and use magnets to mark the accomplishments daily.

 

Homework Station Ideas:

Homework stations were a big part of a successful school year for us. We had one set up in our kitchen, where the kids could sit at the table to do their work, and I could be getting dinner ready for the family. The nice thing was that I was there and available for any questions that may arise. We had a cabinet where all of our homework necessities were stored.

We also had homework supplies in the car/truck. Why not take advantage of the time while one child is sitting around waiting for the other sibling for sports practice or ballet lessons? The more you get finished early, the more free time you have at home at night as a family.

  • Set up a place in your home where your child(ren) will do homework every day.
  • Find somewhere to store all our homework supplies: notebook paper; graph paper; pencils; erasers; glue; paper clips; stapler and staples, colored pencils; crayons; markers; etc. Be sure supplies are easily accessible to your child.
  • Use a Lazy Susan or turntable to place your supplies on the table. That way your kids can just spin the supplies to reach what they need.

Supplies on the go.

  • Keep a smaller amount of the same school supplies in your vehicle. Colored pencils work better than crayons and markers as they do not melt.
  • Have chairs for your kids, so they have a place to sit.
  • A lap desk or board helps to give stability for writing.

 

Whatever you are doing, however you celebrate and organize for the new school year, remember to get things clean and make your moments sparkle with Windex® products, America’s #1 glass cleaner — famous for streak-free shine!* For more information and ideas for use follow Windex® on Facebook and Twitter.

And do make use of the Shutterfly® offer, generations of your family will thank you.

Want another fun idea for school? Check out this fun video tutorial, Cool For School or Anytime… Shoelacing!

Here’s to a happy and organized school year! Go get ’em kids and parents alike.

German Pancakes A Traditional Family Recipe

This shop, German Pancakes A Traditional Family Recipe, has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CapturingTraditions #CollectiveBias

Here is a tasty recipe that is great for busy school days, leisurely weekends, or special holiday brunches — German Pancakes! Make them a tradition in your family.

 

German Pancakes Recipe

Capturing a Family Tradition

 

When I was a kid, it was always a great morning when you woke up and smelled German Pancakes cooking. Mmm, I’m getting hungry already.  Why is that? Because we are making German Pancakes today. This recipe is easy, versatile, and delicious! That is why it has been a family tradition for generations.

German Pancakes are a crepe-like pancake, they are large and thin. You brush them with Gold’n Soft spreadable butter and add cinnamon and sugar, or jellies, jams, fresh fruit, or whatever you like. Roll the pancake, sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired and serve. They are perfect for a family with differing tastes because you make them individually. Have all one flavor (like me, cinnamon and sugar – yum!), or mix it up.

These pancakes are quick and easy, so they are a perfect choice for fueling the kids up before school, a leisurely weekend breakfast, or a holiday brunch.

 

German Pancakes Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/4 Cup – Milk
  • 4 – Eggs
  • 1 Cup – Flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • Gold’n Soft Spreadable Butter
  • Fillings of Choice: Cinnamon and Sugar; Jams; Jellies, Fruit, etc.
  • Powdered Sugar (Optional)
  • Syrup (optional)

Directions:

  1. Crack open the Eggs into a bowl.
  2. Add Milk to eggs, beat well.
  3. Mix Flour and Salt in a separate bowl.
  4. Stir flour and salt mixture into the milk and eggs gradually, until smooth.
  5. The batter will be thin.
  6. Heat a heavy 8-inch to 10-inch skillet and grease lightly with butter or oil.
  7. Pour only enough batter to make a very thin pancake. Tip the skillet from side to side and around to help spread the pancake batter as needed.
  8. Cook on one side (without flipping) until the pancake begins to blister or bubble. Flip the pancake and cook the other side until a light golden color. Do not over cook. You do not want them to get hard or crispy. NOTE: Pancakes cook very quickly, pay attention.
  9. Remove from skillet and place on a board.
  10. Once you have several pancakes stacked on the board, you can begin filling one at a time.
  11. Brush one side only with Gold’n Soft butter.
  12. Add about 1 to 2 Tablespoon(s) of your desired filling: Cinnamon and Sugar; Jam; Jelly; Fruit; etc. to the buttered side.
  13. Roll pancake from one edge all the way across to the other side.
  14. Place rolled pancake (or two) on a plate and dust with Powdered Sugar.

NOTE: If you have two cooks, one can be cooking the pancakes while the other fills and rolls them. Kids love to help with these pancakes.

 

You can see above how I butter a pancake and sprinkled it with cinnamon and sugar before rolling it — that’s my favorite! Below is a slideshow of how to roll a German pancake with fresh fruit.

Coca-Cola Pulled Pork Recipe

Football season in our neck-of-the-woods is always an exciting time, but this year you’d be hard-pressed to find somebody who hasn’t been bitten by the grid iron bug. And that means home-gating viewing parties!

Nobody wants to miss the game because they are busy in the kitchen. This snack work its own magic in the slow cooker, so you have time to prepare other things, and keeping you in the game.

How-To Make Slow Cooker Coca-Cola Pulled Pork

Make Your Furniture a Reflection of You

Make Your Furniture A Reflection Of You

 

Memories, Sentiment, and a Hutch

I am sure you all have something that reminds you of a special time, a special place, or a special someone. Whether it is a trinket, something handed down through the generations, or maybe even a piece of furniture, these items are a reflection of you.

When I was a kid, I loved our trips to my grandparents’ farm in Mississippi. It was so different from Southern California. Everything enthralled me, from the airplane ride to the long drive from Jackson to Carthage. We traveled through the beautiful Natchez Trace, an Indian reservation, and dirt roads to get to the farm. I would always think of that old song, “Over the river and through the woods, to grandmother’s house we go…” (You sang those words in your head, didn’t you?) These sights and sounds were just the beginnings of a wonderful time of family, joy, and memory making.

My grandmother was a hard-working woman, and I liked following her around the farm helping with the chores. I’m not sure I helped all that much, but we had fun together just the same. When dinner time came around, grandma always asked us kids to set the table. Now, grandma was a woman of the Depression Era; she did not have a lot of fancy stuff, but what she had, she kept in a narrow hutch in her kitchen dining area.  That was the one piece of furniture I wish I could have been blessed with, but my cousin was the lucky recipient.

Loving Reflection

One day, I found a hutch that was very similar and I fell in love. I had to have that piece of furniture, and I have cherished it ever since. Even though it is not my grandmother’s hutch, it reminds me of her and all the wonderful things we did and shared. Like my grandmother, I entrust the care of my prized hutch and the things I display on and in it to Pledge® Lemon Clean Furniture Spray. It keeps my hutch clean, while it conditions and protects the wood. The Allergens Trappers® remove dust and up to 90% of allergens found in dust. My hutch has a rustic rough-wood finish. This means that from time to time it needs a little extra care. The wood can dry out from sun and dry air easier than fully finished furniture.

How-to Clean Rustic Rough-Wood Furniture:

  • Use a soft paintbrush (dedicated to dusting) to brush away dust that gets trapped in the rough texture.
  • Do not spray furniture polish directly on the wood.
  • Use a liberal amount of Pledge® Lemon Clean Furniture Spray on a soft cloth.
  • Wipe the prepared cloth against the wood, massaging the spray into the wood.

  • This will leave a beautiful glow and a lemony fresh scent.
  • If your furniture is getting dry and needs a little extra T.L.C., use the Pledge® Extra Moisturizing Furniture Spray.
  • Remember to care for your furniture and your home on a regular basis.

The lemon fresh scent takes me right back to grandma’s kitchen, when I’d pull open the silverware drawer in her hutch. Grandma would even polish her laminate kitchen table to a brilliant shine after dinner with the Pledge® Lemon Clean Furniture Spray. Like Grandma, I keep silverware in the drawer of my hutch. I have confidence in serving my family and friends at gatherings and holiday celebrations from my hutch, and I love the sentimentality and treasured memories it brings.

Here’s a couple helpful hints:

In need of a quick clean? Grab the Pledge® Lemon Wipes. They are fantastic for touch-ups! And the Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner with Glade® Rainshower® is a winner for stainless steel and chrome, and many other surfaces.

It is easy to pick up Pledge® products at your local Kroger family of stores. Rory and I snag our furniture polish, cleaner, and wipes from the cleaning aisle at Ralphs. Follow Pledge® on Facebook for more helpful hints and tips.

What pieces of furniture do you have that bring back special memories and reflections of you? Are you giving them the care they deserve with Pledge®? Celebrate the beauty of your home! #PledgeReflectionOfYou

Cracklin’ Oat Bran Vanilla Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Kellogg’s. All opinions are mine alone. #ReimagineCereal #CollectiveBias

 

Remember all those mornings when you were a kid and eating cereals for breakfast? It was great sitting down to your favorite bowl, but sometimes you wished the cereal was something a little bit more. Today, we are going to re-imagine cereal with my new recipe for Cracklin’ Oat Bran Vanilla Buttermilk Pancakes. You are going to love this breakfast dish, and your family will too.

 

Cracklin’ Oat Bran Vanilla Buttermilk Pancakes

A perfect recipe for an everyday breakfast or special brunch.

 

So, let’s go ahead and add a little crunch to your pancakes with great flavors for a satisfying start to the day. Kellog’s Cracklin’ Oat Bran Cereal is a great add-in for pancakes. The cereal is hearty enough to not get soggy in the pancake batter, and it provides additional fiber, whole grain, and protein. Surprise yourself and your senses.

Pancakes are quick and easy to make, but I have a little secret to make them even tastier. Plus, there is even a fun part to this recipe that your kids will love to help you with.

 

Cracklin’ Oat Bran Vanilla Buttermilk Pancakes

Here’s What You Need:

Buttermilk Pancake Mix, Egg, Water, Pure Vanilla Extract (my secret ingredient to delicious pancakes), Kellogg’s Cracklin’ Oat Bran Cereal.

NOTE: You can always use your homemade pancake mix / batter.

Optional Items:

Fresh Fruit (Peaches, Raspberries, Strawberries), Vanilla Greek Yogurt, Maple Syrup, Honey, or whatever toppings you like.

 

Let’s Make Pancakes!

We are going to start by getting our fruit prepared for topping the pancakes when they are hot off the griddle. I had fresh peaches, raspberries, and strawberries to work with, yum! There was a buy-one-get-one sale on boxed fruits at Albertsons that I could not resist. I got my fruit washed up, then sliced the strawberries and peaches.

 

I picked up my Cracklin’ Oat Bran at Albertsons too.

 

Then, you need to get your Cracklin’ Oat Bran ready for the pancake batter (this is where the kids come in). Place the cereal in a sandwich sized zippered baggy, fold it over to get the air out, and seal the bag. Then, let your kids gently hammer the cereal with the side of a wooden mallet / tenderizer. You want the cereal to be broken up into smaller pieces, but not pulverized. Set the baggy of crunchy cereal bits aside.

Light the fire under your griddle. You want it to be hot when your batter is ready.

 

Get your buttermilk pancake mix out, and follow the directions to make your batter. Add a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. Once batter is mixed, add in about half of your Cracklin’ Oat Bran bits — you want to save some for garnishing your pancakes. Mix until blended.

Check your griddle to see if it is hot enough by spritzing a little water on the hot surface. The water should bubble, spit, and steam.

Scoop your pancake batter onto the griddle and get cookin’.

 

Topping the Pancakes:

I made two different types of toppers for our pancakes. They were both scrumptious and beautiful. Both plates are garnished with the additional Cracklin’ Oat Bran bits.

Peach and Raspberry with Vanilla Greek Yogurt and Honey

 

Strawberries with Maple Syrup

Now, this is an easy breakfast that you would be proud to serve to your family, friends, or even for holiday and special occasion entertaining. The Cracklin’ Oat Bran adds a little cinnamon flavor to the pancake along with the unexpected crunch — a great way to re-imagine cereal.
