This Trim Healthy Mama is Throwing a Birthday Party!

My oldest daughter is turning 3 this December! I can’t believe how fast she is growing. This year we are having a small party at our house with some friends to celebrate her special day.

Birthday Parties can be a scary place for aย Trim Healthy Mama. All the temptations and unhealthy foods that normally come to a party are not good for your waistline!

This is the perfect solution! A Trim and Healthy Birthday Party!

Here are my recipes I’ve collected to get the party going!

Black Bean Brownies

(True Trim Healthy Mama’s sub Sugar for Stevia and Vegetable oil for Coconut oil)ย Trim Healthy Mamaย has a great Special Agent Brownie recipe in their book, a must try! We made it for my daughter’s birthday cake this year. You’ll have to buy the book to get that yummy recipe. read more

Story of a Waterbirth: Happy 3rd Birthday Aidalyn!

IMG_3449_edited-1This is Aidalyn’s birth story and a 3 year update! I thought it was appropriate to share on her 3rd birthday.

This was the day I became a Mama.

Aidalyn is such a joy. She is so full of energy and and spunk. She is so stubborn and will fight you to the death that her dress is actually a shirt (or vise versa depending on her mood). I think she would be a great lawyer.

She loves My little pony and Go Diego Go! oh and don’t forget Disney Princesses!

Her favorite foods are black beans and cheese, almond butter sandwiches, and muffins. Favorite snacks are popcorn, nuts, yogurt, cheese, and fruit. read more

Happy 30th birthday Adam!!!

Today is my husband’s 30th Birthday!

We have a family who likes to share! It is also my sister’s birthday!

Adam and Aleecia share a birthday (July 7th). My brother, Neill, and my niece, Jayden, share a birthday (August 17th). My grandmother and my father in law share a birthday (August 15th) –

Apparently 365 days wasn’t enough to choose from!

This year we are having a big family potluck and maybe some fireworks. It should be lots of fun.

Happy 40-something Steve!

Happy Birthday Steve!

We had such a great time with our dear friends Steve and Tamsy last week. They invited us over for dinner to celebrate Steve’s Birthday. Besides a wonderful meal, Steve has just planted his garden for the summer and I had to show you all.

Steve grilled chicken, steak, squash and zucchini – plus deer meat in a skillet. Becca, Steve and Tamsy’s daughter, made homemade smashed potatoes and biscuits. I made a huge salad and roasted asparagus. read more
