My son, Ian just got his braces off and my daughter Ella, is still wearing hers, so we have definitely learned quite a bit over the past couple of years when it comes to caring for your braces. Health and wellness is extremely important to me and that comes into play with braces, as well. If you do not take proper care of your teeth while wearing braces, this could potentially lead to major issues down the road. Here are just a few easy ways to easily care for your teeth with braces:

Easter Sunday evening we headed to the lake with our dear friends. Monday morning we woke up ready for FUN!!!

Leigh Anne bought this really cool mat for us to float on and clearly the boys had no fun with it. This is what they did to entertain themselves while we waited on our "captain" to take us on a boat ride.

It's a FIESTA

We love a good Fiesta around here. Any chance we get to serve a taco bar is a good day. I like to say that we serve a very "American" taco bar. I will brown up several pounds of ground beef with taco seasoning, Ben will grill fajita chicken with peppers and onions. Then we will warm up tortilla shells and hard taco shells. I will set out lettuce, tomato, cheese, and sour cream. We usually stop by our local Mexican dip for cheese dip and guacamole dip.

The part that I love the most about a Fiesta is the decorations and drinks 😉

Last year I shared the beloved bar cart.

Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad

Hey Friends! I hope your week is going well. Many of you know that I have been a WW member for about a year and a half now.

I am constantly looking for food items low in points. I love chicken salad but the mayo would make it high in points and since I only get 23 points per day I needed to find a lower point option. After looking on Pinterest for a while I found that other WW members were using greek yogurt instead of mayo! Genius I thought...

Let me show you my version of 0 point Chicken Salad. This amount will make about 4-5 meals for me.



Our Weekend with Golf, Wine, and Menchies

Hey Friends! Happy Tuesday.

He smoked a cigar and I enjoyed a glass of wine so yesterday I shared DIY Wellness with Simply Earth Oils. Make sure you check it out. The sleep spray is AWESOME.

Friday afternoon, Ella wasn't feeling great so she parked herself in my lap.
