Takoda 6 Month Mini Photo Shoot

My birthday isn't for a few weeks, but my sweet husband spoiled me early! My birthday present got here over the weekend and I was just itching to try it out, so I did a mini photo shoot in the front yard with our youngest, Takoda, during golden hour last night and it was exactly what I was hoping for.

I have to brag on my man real quick though before I spam you with our cute baby 😉

This year has been a big change for us since we moved in November to a completely new state and started fresh. Did you know that when he moved to Colorado, he literally came there with a duffel bag? And here we are now. 3 beautiful boys later, over 4 years of marriage under our belts, preparing to get our first home, we have a family vehicle, my husband is at an amazing company where he is thriving and it just makes me so happy. It makes me happy seeing him happy.

I know I have said this before, but he really does continue to make my dreams come true. First with becoming his wife, raising a family tog…

5 Ingredient (NO-BAKE!) Energy Balls

I know you're here for the recipe, so go ahead and scroll down to see what you need and go make these energy balls NOW because they're delicious and SO easy to make. 😊
Here's what you'll need:

You don't need to do much. Throw all of the ingredients in a bowl, mix them together, ball them up (with your hands or an ice cream scooper would work great), and freeze or refrigerate them. I like to keep mine stored in the fridge so they're cold, I just think they're yummier like that. 😊

So easy, right? You can substitute the chocolate chips for something like dried cranberries or raisins, really whatever you'd like. So many options for these!

Don't be surprised if they're gone ASAP...they're delicious.

How did you make yours? Did you add something else? Substitute something? Let me know below so I can try it out!

Why You Should Be Using Pinterest

Hi, beautiful friends!
Let's chat about Pinterest.
I remember when Pinterest first started and how everyone instantly fell in love with it.  I remember pinning ideas for my future wedding and basically just planning my future life I hoped I'd have one day on this new platform. 😂

Do you remember how it used to share your pins to your Facebook profile? And didn't you have to be invited to get on Pinterest in the beginning? 

Anyways... It's obviously changed a bit.
Now I use Pinterest when I need to find a DIY tutorial on how to do a cute hairstyle or to find a simple recipe when I don't know what to make for dinner.

But what a lot of people don't realize is how powerful Pinterest really is. 
For someone like me who is a blogger and content creator, any kind of growth and exposure is a big deal. I use my Facebook pages (personal and business), I use my Instagram profiles and pretty much any other social media platform I have to grow my presence online.
And for t…
