Plastic Eggs

I always end up buying new plastic eggs as they all get cracked and broken eventually. I fill the eggs with candy, toys, and stickers to hide around the house. The girls are always so excited to wake up in the morning to find all the hidden eggs the Easter Bunny left behind. There are so many different styles of plastic eggs available, in many different sizes.

Valentine’s Day – Celebrating a Day of Love.

www.notsoputtogethermommy.com (1)

February is here and tomorrow is Valentine’s Day! There are a lot of different ideas about Valentine’s Day and why it exists. A lot of people think that it is just a commercialized holiday for the card/candy companies to make money, but there is a lot of history behind it. The holiday is actually named after Saint Valentine.  A lot of the traditions that go along with Valentine’s Day are based on Saint Valentine and has been celebrated for centuries.

The holiday may be intended for couples, but really you can use this day to celebrate anyone meaningful in your life. Whether it’s your best friend, your kids, your parents it really doesn’t matter. Valentines Day is a day of love for anyone in your life that is special to you.

pexels-photo-208160

I do enjoy celebrating Valentine’s Day with my husband because having a forever Valentine is something to celebrate. I also enjoy celebrating this day of love with my mom and my kids. We all exchange cards and candy just to show we care. My older daughter usually has a party at school, so I buy her Valentine’s Day cards for her classmates and goodies for her to pass out and share. I also get the teacher a cute gift as well.

holiday-sweet-conversation-hearts-37532

I dress up my girls in pink and red so they are ready to party in style. I love pink and hearts so decorating for Valentines Day is my favorite part. I get as many decorations as I can to make my home look festive and pretty.

white-and-red-heart-print-cloths-2063004

Every year I try to bake some homemade goodies for my husband and kids. I decorate the kitchen with Valentine’s Day decor and put out cupcakes, cookies, and candy.  I buy the kids some pizza and we watch a family friendly movie before they go to bed. Once the kids are in bed, my husband and I are able to relax and spend some time together.

baked-pastries-3553703

My husband and I don’t even attempt to go out on Valentine’s Day anymore. It’s just not worth the stress of waiting two hours to be seated. We usually go out the weekend before or after Valentine’s Day, which we have found to be a lot easier.

pexels-photo-356365

We let the kids have their fun with snacks, treats, pizza, and a movie then get them to bed. We then enjoy a quiet dinner by candlelight with some romantic music. After dinner, we usually watch a movie and enjoy some dessert. It’s nothing extravagant but we try to just enjoy the day and keep it simple.

pexels-photo-302515

Most of the decor, gifts, and candy I buy are from Target. They have so many cute things available. I usually shop online and choose the pick up in store option. This saves me time and money. I save 5% every time I shop by checking out with my  Target REDcard.  There’s also this fun new thing called Gift Now that makes shopping even easier and saves you another 5%. If you’re looking for last minute items Target is the place to go.

I hope all of you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! Spend it with those you care about and share the love!

Are you looking to lose weight, get in shape, or just get healthier? A healthy diet and exercise can be so beneficial to your health. Not only will your physical health improve, but it can help relieve stress, improve your sleep, and help you be happier! Exercise releases endorphins, which can reduce pain and stress. Many of us are stressed out daily. Stress can make you sick and cause health problems including depression. The best way to combat stress is through regular exercise. Just 20 minutes a day of exercise can make a huge impact on your health. Both diet and physical activity play a contributing factor to your weight. A healthy diet and exercise can help you look better, and feel better.

vitamins-can-help-your-immune-system-energy-level-overall-healthMultivitamins are supplements that contain different vitamins and minerals that are available in various forms. They contain herbs, amino acids, and fatty acids in addition to vitamins and minerals.

Many claim multivitamins can protect against heart disease, osteoporosis, infections, and even the common cold, but according to healthline.com, this may not be completely accurate. They suggest that taking a daily multivitamin may do more harm than good and that the evidence of their effectiveness varies. Healthline.com also suggests it is better to eat a balanced diet of fresh, whole foods, instead of relying on a vitamin to fix a poor diet. They do say that a daily multivitamin could be beneficial to certain individuals such as older adults, vegans, and pregnant or breastfeeding women. Dietary supplements are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), so their safety and effectiveness are questionable. What do you think? Have you found any benefits of taking a daily vitamin? Head to the whole article at the link below and let me know what you think.

Fact or Fiction: Does more sweat mean a better workout?

According to an article by webmd.com: “Sweating is the cooling process your body goes through to help you maintain a steady body temperature — but it’s no workout indicator. We have this association that sweating equals calories burned, and that’s actually not accurate. Everybody is different and sweats differently, and how much or how little you sweat doesn’t equate to the number of calories you burn. ”

Cardio is a key part of every exercise program. Not only does it help you lose weight, but it also helps you build endurance so you can remain active for a longer period.

Reduce Stress

yoga-2

Yoga is an excellent way to get healthy. Yoga focuses on your body’s natural tendency towards health and self-healing. It can also improve the strength and harmony of the mind and body. Yoga usually consists of breathing exercises, meditation, and stretching. The relaxation techniques used can reduce high blood pressure, and stress. It can also improve insomnia issues, and reduce chronic pain, arthritis and headaches.

Stay Hydrated

It is so important to stay hydrated! Dehydration can cause swollen feet, headaches, and in extreme cases heat stroke! Keeping the body hydrated helps your heart pump blood through your blood vessels and muscles. This keeps the muscles working effectively.

All About the Leggings.

 

Untitled design

I have recently discovered this new clothing line at Target called Cat &  Jack. Let me tell you, I love it! My favorite is the leggings! They are cute, stylish and fit my daughter perfectly. They seem to be one of the few brands that fit her long legs and slim waist. The floral print is our favorite. They are so vibrant in color.

target leggings1

They fit tight to the leg, which I prefer for leggings. I just love them, they look and feel great!! May I add these leggings run only $5-$6 dollars?? Yes, you heard correctly. If you are on a budget then you’re about to score.

Perks of the Target REDcard

Have you heard about the Target REDcard? It was around a while before I heard about it, but when I discovered it, I knew I had to have one! There are just too many perks not to get one. The main one being, they don’t just have a credit card, but also a debit card. You just link it to your bank account and your good to go.

Details :

  • Choose between a Target Debit REDcard or a Target Credit REDcard.
  • Both give you 5% off at Target and Target.com ( Save 5% at Starbucks too, if your Target is lucky enough to have one inside!)
  • Free Shipping. Yes, it’s awesome and I love it. I hate having a minimum for free shipping. Shopping online made easy.
  • Extended Return Policy. This I didn’t know until now. Good to know!
  • REDcard online management. Basically, you can access your account info online. A great tool to have.
  • Cash withdraw at checkout for Debit only.
  • Stackable with the cartwheel app and other discounts. Yes, the amount of stackable savings at Target is endless.

target1

They both offer you the same great benefits. One is a credit card where you charge your purchases and pay later, and the other comes right out of your checking account.

Combine the 5% off with coupons, sales, and the Target cartwheel app.

Free shipping, no minimum purchase or fees.

No fees at all to sign up except for a valid checking account or approved credit card.

Chip-and-Pin protection. The chip validates your card is authentic, and the pin helps validate you are you. This will help prevent fraud.
