Time to upgrade!


Rob and I have been talking for a while about getting a bigger house. We have been causally looking on Zillow. Our house needed a few things done before we wanted to sell so we weren't really in a hurry. One day I went and checked out a house and I think it got me excited to start looking for a bigger house. 

The next weekend Rob had off, we went and looked at 2 houses on Sunday. One in Lodi and one in Galt. We looked at the Lodi house 1st and fell in love! It has everything we need! So much space! But we still wanted to check out the house in Galt since it had a pool. It was nice, but we really liked the Lodi house. 

So on Monday our amazing realtor, Eileen Schamber, contacted the seller and they weren't going to take any offers since the house was somewhat pending. So we were bummed. But later that day, they decided to take an offer from us! So we sent one over and they accepted! We were ecstatic!! So over the moon excited! But know we knew we had to get our house sold before we could get this one. 



We were in a mad rush since the photographer was headed over on Tuesday. I don't think I have ever work that hard to get the house picture ready in a day! It was crazy! We moved a ton of stuff into storage but we had it ready in time. 




The house went on the Market on Wednesday- yes... that same week! We had our 1st private showing on Thursday and 2 open houses over the weekend. We accepted an offer on Sunday or Monday, which put the new house into escrow! 

All that was done in a WEEK! Yes, just a week! Now we are a the end of the tunnel and just waiting for the closing date on our current house and our new house. We are so lucky to have Eileen as our Realtor not just because she is amazing, but because she knows us. She knows our kids and all about our crazy life. I knew she wouldn't let us buy a home that wasn't a good fit for us. 

Until next time- hopefully from our new house!

We started school a month ago--- Finally getting to this post!



School is back in...FINALLY! WE have been back in school for a month and I life has not slowed down! We had a great summer but I am happy to have the kids back in school! But first a little about our summer break.

We had a busy Summer! I have gone a little quite due to being worn out from all we have been doing plus working and Mason being a night owl! I might need to get him the book Go the F**K to sleep by Adam Mansbach. He has hit a rough patch and wants to go to be late.... and I mean LATE! I just put him to bed and its 11:05PM. He is wild from start to finish with 1 nap during the day. If you know some tricks or some vodoo shit.... I will take it gladly!

The kids took a Jiujitsu summer camp for 2 weeks at Valley Fit in Stockton and they LOVED it! Great people and great training all the way around! The kids are begging to go back.



Then at work I had an Internal Audit.... Which is always fun! If you are a UPSers, then you know the joy of always getting ready for KETER! But, I get to spend time with some great co-workers when they are here so I don't mind!

Then the kids went up to Truckee for a few days! Lucky kids! They got to go swimming, and crawdad fishing and all kinds of outdoor stuff! Auntie Katie and Papa Jack are the best! We love them and are so thankful that they love our kids just like there own grandkids!

Last but not least, we celebrated Masons 2nd Birthday! I can't believe he is 2 already! He is such a wild boy at heart and always keeps us on our toes. Especially since he can reach inside the sink... HELLO knives!! He is such perfect fit to out wild and crazy family!






Towards the end of our summer, we headed off to Burney Falls at McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park  for our annual Mooney Family camping trip!









And guess what?!? We are selling our house! But more about that on the next post!

Until next time!

Last day of school!



This school year went by way to fast! This year Kellan and Arley had amazing teachers! I was able to help in their classes every Thursday. I love to see my kids in their classroom setting, playing with their friends and completing school activities together. Both kids seem to love when I help in their classes, but I'm waiting for the day they don't want me to help ;( But until then, I'll be in their classes helping out.


I'm a sucker for photo ops so I printed off some last day of school pictures- Which I found here: 



 


It was Hawaiian Day so the kids got to dress up! They always love to dress up on spirit days. 

I was able to leave work early and pick both kids up from school. I love getting pictures at school. There is just so much excitement. This years PTA was on top of it and had an End of Year photo op! 




I was able to snap a picture of Arley and Mrs. Costello when she released the kids one last time! Mrs. Costello is such an Amazing teacher. This is our 2nd time having her, and we hope to have her again once Mason gets into Kindergarten.

Then every year, I like to surprise the kids with Balloons at home waiting for them. I have done this ever since preschool and I love the reactions they have. 






After we stopped home for a few minutes, I took them to Tom's Used Book and Cold Stone. These kids love Tom's Used Books Store. Kellan loves finding WWII books and Titanic books and Arley loves the puzzles and all the cats roaming around. Then we walked across the street to Cold Stone and  had ice cream! 

We had such a wonderful last day of school! But we are ready for SUMMER!

My Favorite Keto Recipes from Pinterest! -


I have bought books, I have bought magazine and I have bought Keto Menus from websites. But my favorite place to find Keto Recipes is Pinterest! I really never cooked much and when I first got married almost 8 years ago, I made the same stuff- Spaghetti, Soup and Guacamole. I know... He must have not married me for my cooking skills! Luckily, Pinterest was new and made life to easy! I started cooking and baking all kinds of things! 

So fast forward to about 10 months ago. I kept hearing all about Keto this and Keto that... I have tried so many diets that works just a little or not at all. But hearing about Keto- I thought "how can you eat all that and lose weight?" Well my friends, it works! For me, It's slow. But Slow is better than not at all! 

So I'm going to share some of my favorite Keto Recipes that I have found on Pinterest!

1. BROCCOLI AND CHEESE STUFFED CHICKEN

from: https://thatlowcarblife.com


I have made this so many times and I LOVE IT! I have made it in the oven and on the BBQ. Both options are greats! The Bacon wrapped around it is the perfect finisher! So yummy! And each serving is only 2 g net carbs! 

2. Chicken Enchilada casserole


This is a hit with my whole family! Even the baby! WE all love Mexican style dishes so this fits perfect for us! I'm the only one on Keto, so I make Mexican rice and re fried beans for them. And there is always left overs, so I take that to work. This is really easy to make to. I have made it in the crock put and on the stove top. Either one is easy! 


3. Taco seasoning cheese crisps

These are great snacks and super easy to make! In my crazy life, I need easy! Best of all 0 CARBS! Shut the front door--- that make its even better! 

4. Keto pina colada


I have seen this Pin floating around Pinterest for a while a decided to try it... YUM! It's so great and refreshing! MY kids like it too! Its the perfect treat. I'm sure all the flavors are great. Once I try them, I'll let you know! 

So That's it for now. I have my eye on a few new to try. I'll let you know how it goes!  

Find recipes like this and more on my Pinterest boards: Keto


Please let me know if you make and how everyone likes it!
