How I Did on My March Goals and Setting New Goals for April

I had no idea what March was going to actually be like when I set my goals and I honestly did a horrible job on almost all of them but I am giving myself a total pass since life has been just beyond crazy. Health/ Wellness: Track my food everyday -- Nope! I completely failed at this. Workout 3 times a week-- I think I did mange to do this most weeks.  Drink 70 ounces water daily- Yes!   Try using essential oils- Yes! Household: Clean the car -- Check! Though it has been so muddy you can hardly tell I cleaned it inside and out.  O rganize the laundry room - Check!  S wap out Ian's flooring -- Check!  Sort through both game cabinets and the bookshelves; getting rid of those things we've outgrown -- Check! We got rid of so much but we were/ will be able to re-gift a lot of it to new homes. Blogging: Continue updating old posts each day making sure link works and there are pinnable images- - Check!  Family/Fun: Call s

Tv Show : Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist; I wasn't so sure about this show at first since people around her just randomly burst into song but I really do love it! Book : I read 11 pretty good books this month ( see my full list here !) and while it's always hard to p

Crock Pot Hamburger Soup

I took a few photos when I made this recipe back in the late fall but I had forgotten to write down my recipe so I had to recreate my recipe using my photos and I think the second time around this soup might have been even better! A hearty soup is perfect for these cool evenings we're still having here in New England and they're a great way to keep a nice low- point Weight Watcher's dinner too. This meal comes together so easy and cooking it in the crock pot all day makes the house smell great by dinnertime. Ingredients: 1 lb hamburg 1/4 onion; diced fine 1 tsp. minced garlic salt and pepper to taste 1 16 ounce package frozen corn about 2 cups sliced carrots 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes with the juice 1 Tablespoons beef bullion 4-5 cups water 1 24 ounce can pasta sauce 2 cups pasta (I used Ditalini but any small pasta shape would do) In a skilled brown up the beef with minced onion, garlic, salt and pepper.  While it is browning co
