Dear Facebook, It's Not You, It's Me...

Yes that's right I am breaking up with you. Well maybe not a complete breakup but definitely a step back. While I love all that you offer me like connecting with old high school friends or old coworkers, let's face it you can be rather addictive! Everyone knows that you don't show ALL the status' from my friends so then I go searching and before I know it I have been on your site for over an hour!
I am sorry but this has got to stop. I can't tell my kiddo that she can't be on her Ipad for hours at a time and then do the same thing on your site. So therefore I am putting a timer on our relationship much like I just did with my kid. So with all that said you and I can still be friends but I must seriously back off!

Love your faithful but not so addicted friend,

April

Anyone else feel this way? Unfortunately with all the technology Facebook isn't the only site that we become addicted to these days. There is Instagram, Pinterest, The Chive...I could go on.
So how do you realize when you have spent too much time on these sites? And the more important question...How do you manage your time so you can balance it all out?

Pinterest Pick of the Week - Mason Jar Holder

So I always see mason jars at the grocery store, Michaels, dollar stores and pretty much any other crafty store in town. Finally I decided to have some fun and make something with a mason jar!
I saw a pin on Pinterest where the mason jar had been spraypainted and that seemed easy and really fun! My nine year old has a million pencils and pens so a mason jar is the perfect thing for her to use to store them.

There are just a few things that you need:
Mason jar of any size
Spray paint (however many colors you want)
GLITTER!
Clear coat spray paint (if you decide to glitter your jar)
Painters tape

Spray paint the whole mason jar. I did two coats but if you need more you can.

Put painters tape securely around the mason jar. Sprinkle the glitter all around. It might take a few times to get it all covered. I did it once and then added the clear coat and then did it again to make sure I had it all covered.

Make sure to let it dry before removing the tape. Once you do it is good to go and you can use it wherever you like!

Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie

Protein is an important part of your daily food intake. There are many uses for it in your body such as build and repair tissue, and it is literally in every cell of your body! 
With that here is a quick and easy protein smoothie that is protein rich and also tastes delicious! 

1 Banana
1 cup ice (about 6-8 cubes)
1 Tbsn peanut butter
1 scoop of protein powder (I recommend either vanilla or chocolate)
1/2 to 3/4 cup (depending on how thick you want) 1% or skim milk

Put everything in a blender and then mix to your desired consistency.  

This is great as a snack in the middle of your day or even in the morning when you are in a rush and don't have a lot of time to make anything else.
