*I was compensated by Roses Only for this Mother Daughter Activities article. But my thoughts and opinions here are all my own.

It was one simple picture. I needed them to pose after we worked on a fun blog article idea together. The actual blog activity went so much easier than this one simple image. Stay tuned for that one coming to my blog in the next week or so.

But back to the issue at hand. See when my girls were younger, they were actually easier to get pictures of them together.

But at ages 7 and 8, it was literal torture trying to get my girl to sit still for me to take one picture of them.

I am not going to lie I was frustrated in the moment. But then, it dawned on me to just go with their silliness.

*I received compensation to complete this project for using Duck Tape products. All opinions, projects and ideas are based on my own experience.

Many who follow my blog know I am a big fan or DIY and crafting. Plus, they also are aware of two things for sure with me and crafting. First they know that I love crafting with Duck Tape or Washi Tape. See Duck Tape happens to be an easy medium to craft with for the most part. Plus, Duck Tape crafts always come out looking so pretty and colorful, as well.

I also adore mason jars for crafting purposes, too.

Plus on a more personal note, I look forward to spring and warmer weather every year. See I am not a fan of winter, cold temperatures or snow. So when the thaw out begins, I personally couldn’t be happier.

*This post was sponsored by Ling Ling, all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Recently, I shared how our family makes time for special themed family dinners, such as celebrating Chinese New Year here.

But let’s be honest, dinner time with school aged children sometimes no matter how hard we try are darn near impossible to manage; Let Alone special family meals.

I would like to say that we limit the after school activities here for my girls. But let’s be clear as much as this would be ideal, it just isn’t always possible.

See between my two girls, they each belong to their own Girl Scout Troops, dance, soccer, art club, school chorus and even religious education (being Roman Catholic) during the school year.

So many days eating dinner as a family is not always an option with everyone’s varying schedules.

St. Patrick’s Day honestly happens to be one of my all-time favorite days of the year. I may not be 100% Irish. But still the smaller portion genetically that is revels in this day.

So makes sense that Valentine’s Day is now behind us that I begin to share my absolutely love and adoration for this most fun, green colored luck of the Irish day.

Trust me in the weeks to come here, I will most definitely have St. Patrick’s Day on display. For one thing, I married a man who is indeed 100% Irish. So between my love and his love for this day, we are in no short supply for St.

Hi! I’m Kalee! My mom and I are online healthy living coaches that have helped 100s of women hit their goals. Get our entire free library of meal plans and tips to help you feel and look your best! Thank you Janine for allowing us to guest post today!

Growing up, my mom modeled healthy habits for me without even realizing it. Even when our circumstances weren’t the best, she always made sure the two of us were staying active and keeping a positive mindset.

The biggest thing she taught me wasn’t healthy eating habits or exercise though. Through her actions, she taught me being healthy and active should be a lifestyle instead of a quick-fix. It also didn’t matter if she had a ton of money or time, she found simple ways to incorporate fun, active things to create memories with me.

Those memories are something that shaped how I view exercise and food today.

When I first started blogging, I had very limited knowledge about what it takes to be a food blogger.

While I loved to cook, bake, meal plan, and create recipes in my own kitchen, I truly didn’t know what went into blogging about food. When I look back now on my early food blogging, I cringe at what I thought was passable for sharing a new recipe creation on my own blog.

However as I blogged more, I gained a better understanding as to what was not only acceptable, but was also needed to be a food blogger. I will never forget the awe-inspiring experience of seeing one of my recipe posts finally go viral. It was a truly humbling experience. I am not going to lie, though, I worked hard to get my recipe blog posts to be noticed. How did I accomplish this goal?

Confession time once again here for me.

See here is the thing I am not a huge cupcakes person. I know I may be a bit strange for confessing that. But still as much as I love making them I usually will defer to others to mostly consume them. See unlike my admitted cookie obsession, I could truly take or leave most cupcakes.

Don’t get me wrong, I still have a massive sweet tooth. So there are a few cupcakes which I do happen readily enjoy myself when I make and serve here.

One such cupcake treat that I can’t get enough of is Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes.

I am not always sure about some things. But I am sure about one thing, my kids love to snack pretty much throughout the day when they are home. And when they are at school, they also bring in a separate snack to eat during the school day.

So, I am constant trying to keep our house stocked with snack options. Plus, I try to make snack options fun, too.

Recently, I thought with Valentine’s Day and spring in the near future to try out a snack tutorial idea here for my kids.

This one involves the color red, as well as ladybugs.

Yes, I dressing up red fruit and/or Jello cups to look like ladybugs.

I know I have been Valentine sharing here the last few weeks. But still tis the season for Valentine’s colors, hearts and more.

Plus, it is still winter and cold here for the most part. So while we are definitely in the Valentine mood, we are still very much trying to keep warm.

Just as I discussed here in the past hot chocolate is a family favorite during the colder winter months here. While we are indeed past fall, pumpkin spice hot chocolate, we are still clearly in the season where hot chocolate still rules. Therefore, now is the time to drink hot chocolate that is perfect for Valentine’s Day.

When I was younger, I was once told I was very pessimistic by someone close to me. I honestly took those words to heart. I can still recall how that statement made me rethink how I looked at life in general.

It was at this point that I started making mental note how there were plenty of things in my life that were positive. I also realized around that same time that I needed to smile more.

Call it teen angst at it’s finest. But still I did a lot of dwelling on the negative though before this.

However, it was also this moment that I do credit for giving me reason every so often to hit the pause button. When I do that, I find myself being more introspective at the very least. Plus, I look inward to find all the good that in a part of my life.
