Music Monday, A Song to Remind Us That Curves Are Beautiful!

Happy Music Monday!

Are you ready for some new music?!

I have to thank my hubby for introducing me to this song. It has a catchy tune which is sure to get stuck in your head. It's been running around in my head for days now. The thing is it is a fun song, but most importantly, it has a great message! Girls come in all shapes and sizes, and we need to realize that it is okay to have curves. I'm hoping that having this song on the charts will help teen girls get some much needed self love. Let's stop photo shopping women to look a certain way, and realize that we're all perfect the way we are.

Have a fabulous week!

Music Monday, Rocking the Train Off the Tracks as the Spotlight Dancer!

Happy Music Monday! This week is special because I've been selected as the Spotlight Dancer at Monday's Music Moves Me. So, I'm gonna show you my dance moves to this week's theme of train songs, (songs about trains or have a train in them.)

I appreciate the honor, and hope that I don't slip and fall as I make my way to the dance floor. So, I'm gonna start it off with something a little slower with some grooves by Smokestack Lightning.

Kind Snacks Bring Surprisingly Good Flavors With Strong and Kind Bars. #KindAwesome

When Kind Snacks contacted me to send me product samples, I couldn't say "yes" fast enough! I am a huge fan of Kind bars, so I couldn't wait to see what other products they have that I hadn't tried. They didn't disappoint...there were so many new flavors and products for me to try, some of which were very surprising!

When I first started to look for healthier ways to eat, Kind was one of the first things I found. They made me realize that I could be healthy and still have food that tastes good. One of my favorite Kind bars is made with nuts, dark chocolate, and sea salt. It is both sweet and salty, and is packed with healthy protein. It's perfect for a quick snack, and it tastes like I'm eating a candy bar, but without the added taste of guilt.

Wordless Wednesday, Back to School, Play Time, Chocolate, and Music.

A peek at my past week in instagram pics

School is back in session, not just for my daughter, but for me, too. Last week was the first night of Intro to Religion class. It looks very interesting and I'm ready to learn! It helps that I have really awesome school supplies. ;)
Skulls go well with everything, even school supplies!

Easy White Cheddar Cauliflower Quinoa Bites Recipe

I love food, but sometimes, deciding what's for dinner is such a chore! I try to make meals that are healthier and flavorful, but they also have to be quick and easy so I can make it after work. Thank goodness for all the great recipes I find on Pinterest! With so many great recipes out there I don't have to worry about having the same old things, and it makes deciding a little more exciting.

My latest inspiration from Pinterest is a White Cheddar Cauliflower Quinoa Bite. I was able to make the quinoa ahead of time. Quinoa can be made in a rice cooker, so that makes it easier. I also cut my cauliflower on the weekend so I can use it during the week in various ways, this was one of them. The ingredients mix together quick and easy, and then just bake for 20 minutes in a mini muffin pan.  I used a tri-color quinoa, but any color will work.

Most importantly, they were DEEEE-licious! The whole family loved them, and that's what really matters!
