What's Up Wednesday

Let Us Experience The Glory Of Your Goodness

Wednesday

This has been a busy week, following a busy week last week.

But this Wednesday, instead of posting about what WE are up to, can you do a favor for us?

Can you please pray for my dad and the sweet lady in blue, pictured below?

Food For Thought Friday

A Quick Fix Delicious Chicken Dinner

Friday2Happy Friday Y’all!

Sad to say, I am NOT feeling well…still…but at least I am home today, with my sweet husband. Always looking for that silver lining… 🙂

As promised, we have a DELICIOUS recipe for you today. It’s simple and easy to make, and you can easily alter it based on your own personal taste!

recipe

Because we love spice, we chose seasoned pepper, and red pepper flakes as two of our seasonings. Also, we used a spicy relish in addition to the heirloom tomato and roasted red pepper. Seriously, this was a DELICIOUS dish, and easy to make after getting home from a long commute and a long day at work! 🙂

Enjoy this meal, and you won’t be sorry! What are some of your go-to recipes for a quick homemade meal?

Have a great weekend folks!

My Choice Monday

Cure For The (All Too) Common Cold

MondayGood Morning and Happy Monday!

I may sneeze my way into 2014 the way things are looking right now, and since I’ve had more than a few people acknowledge they’re suffering the same illness, we decided that today’s “My Choice Monday” should be about cold remedies!

1. The Neti Pot

I’ll have to admit, when Craig and I first tried this, we were both a little bit nervous…Intentionally putting water in your nose…Well, that’s just a tad nerve-wracking. However, we were faced with the necessity of having to do SOMETHING prior to boarding the long flight to Rome, Italy earlier this year, and to avoid eardrum-popping madness, we would have done just about anything. This turned out to be step #1 to freedom!

2. Comtrex Day & Night

Folks, this stuff is wonderful. I have been dealing with each and every one of these symptoms and this is the only over-the-counter medicine that really helps! Plus, it’s convenient to buy one box and have both daytime and nighttime relief!

3. Aura Cacia Peppermint Shower Tablets

I don’t know about you, but one of the things that seems to help the most when I’m really congested is a hot, steamy shower! Add a peppermint tablet to that steam-filled bliss and you’re on your way to congestion recovery!

I also found a DIY option that I think would work marvelously – I just haven’t been able to locate one of the ingredients in a brick and mortar store (Kind of essential when you have a cold now!). Maybe you’ll have more luck? You can see for yourself here, at the blog Rebekah’s Corner. If you have any clue where to find Menthol Crystals, let me know! We would love to try making these!

Hopefully, you won’t be celebrating this New Year’s Eve like this member of the Newlywed Lefebvres – but if you are, try these recommendations to banish your cold before 2014!

Until Tomorrow…

Lots of Love,
