Beautiful End Result Of A Snow Storm

One of the privileges living in Wisconsin is  being able to witness a snow storm transforming my surroundings into these beautiful scenes. Wisconsinites expect a white Christmas every year but this year it was not the case. The temperature was warm enough and didn't give chance for snow to form up in the sky. Although the snow came later after Christmas, it does not take away the joy that me and my family felt celebrating the birth of our Savior.

We probably got around 5 inches of snow but depending where you are. The wind blew the snow away  that it looks like we got 2 feet. These are the photos I took, I am not a professional but  I love capturing images that I think worth remembering.

Our front yard and drive way. Our landlord hired someone to plow it early this morning.

One of our minivans is covered with snow. My dear hubby already brushed and got the other van ready for me for when I go to work later.

Wisconsinites are always ready, our streets were already plowed and salted.

But as for me, the best picture of all is my teenager son shoveling the drive way on his short pants. This kid seems to have a built in furnace.

My two younger boys can't wait to do some sledding later today. Have a wonderful New Year  everyone.

Forever Flex Exercise Ball Review #liveinfinitely

I try to squeeze in a 15 minutes cardio exercise a day into my already busy life. Being a full time mom of 3 boys and working as a pharmacy Tech there's not enough time to do an hour exercise. Most of the time I do planking and now I can add a  different way to do planks using an exercise ball. Thanks to Live Infinitely for offering me to review their Forever Flex Exercise Ball. This is a great addition to my home work-out equipment collections.

The product came with hand air pump, air valve remover tool and instruction manual. I could have gotten a 55 cm ball but I choose 65 cm because my oldest son is already 5' 7" tall and so we all can use it. The ball size varies based on height and here is the sizing chart.  

Shorter than 5' 6": 55cm
From 5' 6" - 5' 11": 65cm
From 6' 0" - 6' 4": 75cm
Taller than 6' 4": 85cm

I am amazed on the quality of the product. The ball is made from latex free Professional grade PVC material so thick that I won't worry about bursting. My husband's old exercise ball was not as thick as this one.  It supports 2200 lbs static load and can hold 600 lbs. Perfect for my husband to use since he is over 200 lbs. My two younger kids sat on my husband's lap and the ball didn't burst. I like the non-slip ridges, it helps me keep my balance when I do my planks. My kids love it and has been playing with this ball since day one. It helps them to stay active especially this winter season. I was able to do crunches, planks and back stretch. The ball is soft and sitting on it feels relaxing. I've noticed that when I sit on it my lower back pain goes away. Sitting on the couch for long hours gives me lower back pain but this ball doesn't. With this ball I can do exercises while watching my favorite movie. The hand air pump works really good, my husband didn't have a hard time inflating it. I had a great time and a lot of fun with this product with my family. I recommend it for you to try, so visit their amazon account here.


Disclosure: I received the product for FREE in exchange of my honest review.

We Had A Great Time Celebrating My Birthday

I just reached my mid 30's and also became a mom of a teenager son last month.  So happy of what my life have become. I am happily married for 9 years and have 3 wonderful children who are healthy, happy and crazy(loves to make others laugh). My oldest son and I were born on the same month. We'd decided to celebrate our birthday at The Cheesecake Factory.
I didn't know what to order so I asked the lady who was serving us at that time about their best selling healthy food. She recommended the Thai Lettuce Wraps.

My family ordered food that they were familiar with, which they actually loved. My husband ordered Kobe burger, my oldest son got Smokehouse BBQ Burger, my middle son picked out Kids mini corn dogs while we got our youngest a Kids Chicken strips.

We had a great time and thankful that we were able to just get away with family and enjoy food and time together. Being able to celebrate my birthday every year is one of the proofs that I am blessed beyond measure.
