Protein Powder

I love having protein powder on hand to add to smoothies, pancakes and simply drink on its own in shakes to ensure we are all getting enough protein each day. This is especially important for Luke as he doesn't love most meat. This being said, I can get sick of the same old protein shakes so I thought I would share a few recipes with you on how I have been using protein lately. The shake recipe is my friend Kayleigh's and I am fully addicted to it, its so yummy!

Homemade Protein Bars 

4 cups rolled oats
2 scoops Vanilla Arbonne Protein Powder 
1/2 cup white chocolate chips 
1/2 cup nut butter of choice 
1/2 cup coconut oil
20 large marshmallows 
1tsp vanilla 
1tsp cinnamon

Melt your nut butter, coconut oil and marshmallows over medium heat in a pot until fully combined.
Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
Pour into 9X9 dish and let set in fridge for at least 4 hours.
Flip out onto cutting board and cut desired bars sizes, wrapping each one individually with plastic wrap.
Store in fridge.
Note: the bars still crumble a bit, I just put the crumble in a little zip lock and saved it for on top of yogurt. If anyone has tips on how to keep your homemade granola bars together I would love to hear them.

Protein Smoothies 

2 scoops Vanilla or Chocolate Arbonne Protein Powder (it tastes great with either flavour)
1/2 cup almond milk
1 banana
1 tbsp peanut butter of choice
Pinch of nutmeg
6-8 ice cubes

Whiz everything together in a container and enjoy. I like to use my emersion blender as its easier to clean than my regular blender.

Let me know what your fav recipes are for using protein powder.

Happy snacking,

As wedding season slowed for my makeup artistry business I started to evaluate the business structure of Arbonne as I was already an Arbonne Independent Consultant, when you work for yourself you learn very quickly how to change directions from time to time to make your business work.

With faith I reached out to my up line and let them know I was now ready to be coached in this business that terrified me. My greatest fear was this "what will people think of me, as a Christian how can I maintain integrity in this role?". (I had preconceived notions about network marketing that have now been dissolved) I learned the system, started to apply it and worked at doing it with God by my side, just how I try to approach most areas of my life. 

God made me a promise, keep Him the focus of all I do and he will take care of me and my family. 

Taking care of my family may not always look like promotion, I know this, but this month it does and for that I am grateful. God always provides and he absolutely did this month and in lots of different forms. I accomplished what I did not by my own strength but by His, Amen!

Right Now

Thank you Shannon Turner Photography for our beautiful family photos! You not only have an eye behind the camera but you also have a great personal skill with people and children. Being a mom of four yourself, makes you an easy decision for me for family pictures every time!

A few people asked me "Why don't you just wait until the baby is born to get family pictures taken?", my response was "I want to remember this phase right now." Two year old Luke, our little trio family,  it's special dynamic and the bump. Our little triple will soon become a quartet but I want to remember everything that is right now because while I am so excited about growing our family and meeting baby L #2, Ty and I are also so in love with the dynamic we currently have. 

Contentment in the moment, while anticipation for the future. It's a hard balance. Sometimes I like to day dream about the future of our family and others, I like to just sit in what it is right now. 

So that's why we got our photos taken. I would like to try and have them done consistently at least twice a year as children change so much in such short periods of time and just looking back on photos takes you right to those moments you use to be in.

Dream Chasers Walk In Faith

This week I stepped out in faith in my business and was pleasantly surprised at the results, I didn't realize how much I was holding myself back or allowing my fears to stunt my growth and success, until I took a hard look in the mirror and the places I really wanted to grow.

When I was honest about my goals, I realized I had allowed myself to listen to the lies of the enemy. God is truth and the devil tells lies. 

God has created each and every one of us with unique talents and with purpose! When we listen to the lies the enemy tells us about who we are and what kind of life we should live, we start to believe and live that as truth. The more we dive into the word of God and get to know Him, the easier it is to know who we are as unique children of God. When my faith grows in who I know myself to be as a child of the One True King, I become less concerned with what the world thinks of me as I boldly live the life I was designed for. 

That doesn't mean I don't have times where I stumble, because as much as my creator knows my strengths, the enemy knows my weaknesses and will take all opportunities to grip me and stop my progress using the areas that scare me most. We are a threat to the devil and invaluable assets to the plans of God! 

This week was a break through for me and I am so grateful for that. I can read all I want about faith but the growth actually comes when I step out in faith, using the skills God has blessed me with and trusting that if I show up, put Him first and work to do His will, He will do the rest! 

Awesome God, thank you for my unique gifts and for strengthening my faith everyday. Help me to share the skills you have blessed me with so my blessings can bless others. As I continue to grow stronger in faith by walking in faith, help me to give my fears less and less stronghold in my life! In your name I pray, Amen!

Luke Lately - Happy Birthday

Lukey, you are 2 years old and I am blown away by what you have accomplished since your first birthday. We were on family vacation two weeks ago and you got to spend so much extra time with dad, this time with your dada unleashed your wild little boy, you are no longer my baby.

You can count to 5. 

You are becoming increasingly opinionated and independent which can cause a few disagreements from time to time but we are working through this phase. 

You can sing Ba Ba Black Sheep.

You have this monster voice you talk in sometimes that is really scary. 

You learned to whisper.

You are potty trained. 

Your excited about your big boy room as we get it organized before the baby arrives. You like to show it to your family when they come over.

You ask your dad and I from time to time if we are happy, I think this demonstrates your mature caring nature. 

You like to tell people Happy Birthday and we like saying it back to you.

You are my motivation for so much.

Here are some video clips from the last year, you have accomplished a lot in year two and your dad and I could not be more proud of you.

Lots of love and Happy Birthday, mom.
