Challenge 15- timeline of my day

Hey there! 

I apologized that I haven’t posted a challenge day for the past 3 days it has been a busy/ emotional week and instead of doing 3 at a time I’ll just pick up from here! 
So a typical weekday timeline would be 

7:15- I wake up after pushing snooze on my alarm for 45 mins haha 

7:30 – I leave for work (yes it takes me 15 mins to get ready, I work a daycare so I dont dress fancy) 

8:00/8:20- depending if I stop at Tims (ice caps all the wayyyy!) I arrive at work 

8:45-5:30 work! I do activities with the kiddies. 

6:15 – I’m home or at my moms (laundry day)  and usually I just relax after until bed, reading or a movie. Sometimes I also plan for work I do love my job! 

Thats it! Weekends its soccer and family/friend time, also being lazy haha 

Night!

Boston Cream Cupcakes!

Hey there,

So I’ve made my first recipe that I’ve decided to share with you guys! Everyone loves cupcakes haha. I’ll put the link here of where I got the recipe.

Its pretty simple what I used:

  • 1 Box of yellow cake mix (Duncan Hines)
  • Whip Cream (need about a cup and a half)
  • A box of Instant Vanilla pudding
  • A bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of cold milk

How I made them:

  • Start off by making the cupcakes, follow the simple recipe on the box and once ready I just left them on the counter to cool off.
  • Next we have the cream part. Start with your pudding mix and milk, while stirring add half a cup of whip cream. Mine came out looking like this: IMG_2314.JPG
  • After I was done I put it in the fridge and went back to my cupcakes, on the recipe it says to cut them in half horizontally, smart me tried to cut it with the wrapper on haha. IMG_2313.JPG
  • What I did next was the chocolate mix; I mixed the cup of whip cream with half a bag of chocolate chip… okay okay maybe 3/4s of the bag was added. I like my chocolate. I put it in the microwave for 1min and 30 secs, but after 40 seconds it was liquid and perfect. 😉 IMG_2316.JPG
  • Lastly I took my pudding mix added it to the middle of the cupcakes and then added the top with some chocolate icing. They looked good if I do say so myself:

     

     

     

     

     

    I placed them in the fridge over night and they were a Hit at the potluck/meeting I had at work!

If you make them let me know what you think!

Color Block Puzzles

Hey again!

I was looking through some pictures and noticed I didn’t post this activity yet and I had the pictures I took for it. It’s pretty simple I take no CREDIT; I found it on Pinterest (link) and I followed it.

Here are the pictures I took to go with it!

The children really enjoyed the matching of colours, they even changed it up and just matched the pieces together. It kept them busy a good half hour! YAY me!

Materials used

  • Construction paper
  • Mega blocks/ Duplo
  • Marker

I traced the blocks with the marker on the construction paper and it’s ready!

Challenge 14 – if I won the lottery…

Hey there,

I like today’s challenge, I read it this morning and thought about it all day to have a good idea of what I want to write and it’s really simple.

I don’t see myself quitting my job and living the high life, that’s just not me. I was brought up to work for what I want and that it is more rewarding when you do than when it’s just handed to you.

I would get the important stuff out of the way, meaning putting ALL my balances to zero be debt free. Than I would help my parents, I know my mom could use it!

I would go back to school, I really want to now but the problem is it doesn’t fit in my budget and this would help.

After all that I would love to travel a little to experience new things, but I will always come back and get back to my daily life.

That’s it!

Stay tuned I’ll have a dessert recipe going up later tonight or tomorrow.

Challenge 13, My earliest memory and Gardening!

Hey there!

It’s a late one I know but I was outside ALL day it was too nice to stay indoor and plus can’t say no to a best friend date!

On with today’s challenge:

It’s a tough one I’m trying to think back to when I was younger but nothing from early on sticks most of my memories include my little brother and we’re 8 years apart so I’ll take one of those. I remember we used to spend hours doing these little puzzle (24 pieces max) but he had a bunch and we did them all at once and made a carpet of puzzles..

We don’t do much puzzles these day the little baby isn’t so little anymore he’ll be 18 in a month! I still can’t wrap my head around it. That’s my earliest memory!

My second topic of the night Gardening! I always end up wasting anything I buy so I thought why don’t I try gardening (I’m in no way an expert total beginner), I thought I go simple and plant herbs that I’ve used when cooking and post a mini DIY here.

I did it really simple I bought the pots at my local Dollar and plus store and painted them to the theme of my living room since it’s the room with the most light (I like how my curtain made the perfect back drop for the picture haha). I filled up the pot with soil and just before the top layer I added seeds. I have no idea if I added too little or too many seed. It’s really a guessing game now!

I’ll be keep you updated as time goes on

Until tomorrow!

Challenge #12 – What’s in my Fridge.

Hi there!

This coming to you live from my mini back balcony on this beautiful Saturday evening in Montreal. I feel like we’ve been waiting forever for this weather.

On with what I think will be the most depressing challenge day ever, because I can count what I have in my fridge on my fingers

  • bread
  • water
  • eggs
  • milk
  • bacon
  • Red wine
  • olives
  • fruit cups

That’s it… I’m barely home with work, babysitting, soccer and moms cooking (it’s the best) that I don’t bother buying much because I end up wasting it if I dont use it right away.

That’s all I have for today, I’m going to enjoy the rest of my evening with my book 🙂

Bye!
