Hot, Homemade Lunch at Work

Happy Chanuka everyone!  This year I bought myself a gift and I want to tell you all about it! You see, I always struggle when it comes to packing myself lunch for work. I’m tired, don’t love to cook and really prefer to eat hot food over a cold sandwich. So lately I’ve found myself spending a lot of money on lunch. And honestly, I don’t always get the healthiest food. So, I decided that needed to change. I had to make more of an Read More +

Having a Scanner is a Must!

I never used to use the scanner feature on our printer until recently.  I have learned the hard way that school and camp offices alike are not always as organized as I would expect them to be.  All the paperwork involved in school/camp registration is completely annoying and super time consuming and I hate when I have to re-do it.  So, enter my scanner.  Before sending any forms out I scan it in and save it in my Google Drive. At first when I started Read More +

Shabbos Menu: P’ Vayeishev (Dec 12-13)

I’d like to get your opinion on my Shabbos menu posts.  DH thinks they’re silly and doesn’t understand why anyone would care what we’re eating on Shabbos. On the other hand, I like to post my Shabbos menus.  I’m proud of their simplicity, the fact that I was able to pull them together and I want to share that with you! So, if you don’t mind- please take a minute to post your opinion.  Your honest opinion.  Thanks in advance! In the meantime, I want Read More +

When You Work Until Candle Lighting Time – Getting It All Done on a Short Friday

Tis the season… of super short Fridays! I remember the days when I’d arrive at daycare straight from work with 45 minutes to spare until Shabbos began.  I think it was one of those cases where I was so busy, I had to be super organized.  We never had fresh food- everything was cooked the night before and heated up in the microwave as soon as I got home.  The table was never set before Shabbos started and I was lucky if I even had Read More +

Goodbye Ziplist – My Search for a New Grocery List App

I never thought I’d lose one of my favorite apps.  I just thought it would be around forever or at least until I found a really good replacement.  Well, that day has come… on December 10th, Ziplist will be gone. I posted about how I use Ziplist- it has an awesome shopping list that sorts items by aisle.   It stores my online recipes and with a click I can add the ingredients from that recipe straight to my shopping list.  It also used to have Read More +

12 Months to a Healthier You: December 2014

12 Months to a Healthier You is a monthly challenge I’ve decided to take on. By taking on small challenges every month I’m hoping to make lifelong changes in the way I live. Wow, it’s December already!  The last month of this challenge.  I don’t know what will be next month, but I was thinking of re-starting the challenge… I haven’t been that great at keeping up with each challenge and I definitely have my work cut out for me! As a reminder, here are Read More +

November Gratitude Journal

I wasn’t sure I could do it, but I did.  This past month’s 12 Months to a Healthier You challenge was to keep a gratitude journal.  Each day I wrote down one thing I was grateful for.  I’ve never had a journal before.  Even though I don’t feel the need to re-read through every day of this past month, this challenge has taught me to find something to be grateful for every day.  No matter how boring or hard that day was, there’s always something Read More +
