Kids of the King

My life as a kid of the King


I am looking for a new look, a new focus and a new vision. I am not sure who, where or what my blog will be about, maybe the same old randomness that consumes my life! But it will be an adventure for sure.

I have lots of changes coming my way – I’m turning 30 (yikes!) soon, our 10 year wedding anniversary is coming up, my girlie is going to be 9, my little is starting kindergarten this fall and I am *planning* on starting some schooling for myself. Writing it all out is making my heart beat a step faster! WOWZA! It all makes me feel like I have to start growing up! But we all know that is NOT AN OPTION ūüėČ

So if you check in from time to time, there may be a new layout, a new banner, and new random post! But dont let that detour you. Life is filled with random bits of happiness, its exciting and I know that the Lord has big plans for what is coming! Its a big year and I feel like it is a lifechanger.

WLA Day 4 – My Fitness Pal App

So I totally blew it yesterday! I ate lots of things that I porbably shouldnt have!! But that is the way it goes sometimes right?

BUT I have found something that will really help me! MYFITNESSPAL app for my ipod! Here is a link to thier website version: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/.

So I can keep track of my calorie intake everyday by adding to my food journal. It is really interesting finding out how many calories are in some items! And a bit scary too! It has a place to insert your stats and your goals. it gives you the amount of calories you should consume and keeps track through the day. I think it will be a good motivation to watch what I eat.

Check this out!

  • Starbucks Banana Loaf – 1 Slice = 390Cal
  • Starbucks Caramal Macciato Non Fat – Grande = 190Cal
  • Starbucks¬†Oat Fudge Bar – 1 bar¬†= 440Cal
  • MCD’s Fries –¬†large = 500Cal
  • MCD’s Cheeseburger =300Cal
  • MCD’s Mcnuggets – 10pc = 470Cal
  • Boston Pizza Buffalo Chicken Sandwich = 910Cal
  • BP Tropical Chicken Pizza – 1 slice = 240Cal
  • BP Boston Brute = 840Cal
  • BP Chicken Stromboli (Alternative Menu) = 660Cal

YIKES!

MIA!

Wow! I am sorry! I have been totally MIA!

I have been so busy and SICK lately I havent had the time to blog. We have had a cold running around our house for over a month and I am on round two! I know you other parents can relate on how much it sucks to have sick kids, be sick, have sick kids again and be sick again! It can feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. I know there is, and my eyes are on Him! Stay Tuned for some super cute posts on the super cute things I have been up to!
Here is a teaser:

Its a GREEN Christmas!

It’s a¬†GREEN Christmas this year! And I don’t mean the lack of Snow… (which is the case here!) BUT I mean it the time of year to THINK about dialing back our environmental impact during the Christmas Season. With so many of us buying gifts, decorating, partying, traveling and cooking dinners we need to find some “greener” ways to celebrate and enjoy the season!

GREEN Gift Ideas:

~Buy gifts of services such as Spa Services, Dance or Music Lessons, Childcare, Maid Services, Hair or Makeup Appointments.

~OR activities like Movie Passes, Museum Memberships, Ski or Snowboard passes, Dinner Certificates.

~Make something yourself – like cookies.

~By shopping in local shops that support local artists and local businesses you are not adding to greenhouse emissions and global warming. Local craft fairs and artisan shops are a good source for gifts that come without the added costs of transportation. Check out your town!

~Buy Recycled products and gift items. There are so many companies offering a variety of amazing products. (Check out Mat and Nat bags who uses recycled bottles to create their products.)

~RE GIFT! Just because you couldn’t use it, it didn’t fit or it wasnt your style dosn’t mean it wont be perfect for someone else.

~Try to re-use gift wrap and bags while wrapping your gifts, also use recycleable gift wrap whenever possible.

Green Decorating Ideas:

~ Buy a LIVE tree! They are a better choice than a plastic one! They are a renewable resource grown on tree farms, that are replanted regularly. They contribute to air quality while growing, and almost ninety percent are recycled into mulch. Live trees are usually locally grown and sold, saving both transportation costs and added air pollution. Live trees also smell like Christmas!

~Use LED lights. LED (Light Emitting Diode) holiday lights use up to 95% less energy than larger, traditional holiday bulbs and last up to 100,000 hours when used indoors.

~Turn off your lights when you go to bed!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Once Upon A Time…

Has anyone seen the new television show called “Once Upon a Time”? I happened to catch the second episode and since then have been HOOKED! It is AWESOME!¬†Great characters, Great idea, Great writing and GREAT fashion! This is one show that I REALLY hope will continue on for a couple of years. The possibilities are really endless! And plus – I am a BIG Ginnifer Goodwinn fan! (She plays Snow White/Mary Margaret Blanchard)

According to the website “Wardrobe for many characters in Storybrooke is often coordinated with their fairy-tale counterpart” which is pretty cool.

I was SEARCHING for this one specific outfit I saw on an episode a while back that was awesome – this beautiful deep red! LOVED IT! BUT no pic!
