What year is it?

Wow,  I can't believe it was 2 years ago since I last posted on this here blog.  Time flies doesn't it!  A lot has happened since then.  I hate to say it but I let me weight go back up and got up to 219.  I hate that I let that happen. I can give you all excuses, I sold my house, moved in with my parents, had a long commute to work and no time to exercise, I wasn't in total control of all the meals at my moms house etc. But ultimately I just stop working on myself.  I recently went on a diet bet and an down to 212 or so, give or take a days fluctuation. I can't wait to get back to my last blog post weight. Oh, I looked so much better then.

In June 2015 we moved from Southern California to Vancouver, WA.  I haven't ever lived anywhere but Southern California so the weather will be fun to get used to. It rains a lot here so they all say but it's really green an beautiful because of it. The summer is almost over and the summer has been dry, hot and sunny.  I have been told that it's not usually so hot and sunny here.  I've enjoyed it.

The kids are going to start school this week on 9/2.  Colin will be going in to 2nd grade and Kadence will be going into Kindergarten.  No more babies, now I have two big kids.  Insert sad face mommy here. haha I will be starting a job at a preschool part time teaching 3 year olds so that should be an adventure. I have been looking at Pinterest for inspiration for the classroom.

I have also recently entered the world of Essential Oils and am loving them so far.  I find myself hearing someone say they have an ailment of some kind and thinking what kind of oil they could use to help aid them in feeling better or relief.  I am slowing getting rid of harmful chemical laden household products and trading them out for homemade natural ingredient products.  There is so much to learn, but it's worth it if I can utilize natural products instead of synthetic ones.

My favorite essential oils right now are Thieves and Lavender.  The cold and flu season is coming and Thieves well help with a having a healthy immune system and Lavender has been really helpful in calming me down and night and getting a better nights rest.  These are very important since school will be starting soon and I want to make sure I'm healthy and rested.

Have you entered the world of essential oils?
