Where have you been?!

Holy cow, folks.  Seriously.  It's like I have fallen off the face of the earth or something?!

....yeah, that kinda happened, actually.

Not really, but what actually DID happen was I moved to a new house!  It's a cute little house closer 'to town', and we love it.  Here's a short kitchen undersink organization video to hopefully give you some inspiration to make your soaps, sponges, dishwasher detergent, scrapers, etc. more accessible.

Aloe Vera Hair Gel!

Good evening, friends!  I'm up late tonight- I have to pick up hubs from the airport at 11pm, so needless to say, I'm getting a little loopy sleepy!  I decided to make a video tonight on my newest natural product find... aloe vera gel!!  Who knew that you could use aloe vera gel as a HAIR GEL?!  It works so well!!  And it's cheap, gluten-free, and it doesn't make your hair dry and crispy!  I got a 16oz bottle for $5 from the health food store.  Talk about an awesome cheap find!!  Check it out!

Overnight Crock-Pot Beef Stew

Good evening, friends!  Don't forget, you only have 3 more days to enter my Rescue Remedy Giveaway!!  Do it, you know you want to ;).  Peer pressure.

Anyway, how about a superfast supereasy crock-pot recipe?

Overnight Crock-Pot Beef Stew

1-2 lbs Stew Beef (I got free-range organic beef from Trader Joe's)
2 Bags of Organic Mini Carrots
3 Organic Russet Potatoes
1 Carton of Broth  (I used Trader Joe's Organic Vegetable Broth)
4-8 Cups of Water (Eyeball this one- just enough to cover the top)
Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Italian Seasoning, to taste

Wash and chop the potatoes (keep the peel on).
Throw all of the above ingredients into the crockpot.
Eyeball the water- use just enough to cover the top of the vegetables.
Cover and cook on high for 8-9 hours.




























Look how much it made!  I'm going to be eating this for weeks.  In fact, I had it for lunch today.  Om nom nom.  Love you all!

Who Needs A (Virtual) Vacation?

Good Monday morning, friends!  It's President's Day, so hopefully you have the day off!  I did NOT have the day off, but decided to TAKE the day off, as my life is now finally getting back to normal!  (Big sigh).

Just had an OM NOMMY brunch of Applegate Farms Sausage, tomatoes, and spinach topped with nooch.... (awesome quick meal!) and I'm about to change laundry and run to Target to pick up a couple of things we have run out of.
















If you don't have a vacation day today and wish you had one, how about a short trip to the Canadian Rockies?  I posted three short panorama videos to one of my YouTube channels, and they can whisk you away, if only for a minute or two.  More vacation videos will be uploaded to that channel over the next few days.  Enjoy!
