Sponsor Spotlight Part One

It is that time again!! Time to meet some of the lovely ladies that have been hanging out on my sidebar this month. 

Hey! I'm Katie, and I blog over at Loverly She.  It started a few months ago as a style/DIY blog, but is quickly evolving into something a bit more diverse. I guess you could call it a life & style blog, and it features lots of outfits, thrifty tips, makeup reviews, and the odd song, poem, or random bit of personal rambling that I have written.  I have a bunch of absolutely lovely (and stylish) friends who make regular appearances on there as well.  My friends and family are such a huge part of who I am, so I figured it made sense to incorporate them into my blog as much as possible, especially as some of them are very talented artists who I love to prodigiously show off  :)

Hi I am Ashley from Life As I Know It! I enjoy blogging about my crazy Canadian life with 2 Golden Retrievers and 3 cats, as well as trying various DIY projects!! Feel free to follow along this crazy journey of mine called LIFE!!! I love finding new blogs and followers!!

Hi friends! My name is Emily and I’m a lifestyle blogger at Newlywed Moments. You guessed it, this year I got married! So I write about everything from romance to recipes to real life. Other random facts about me: (1) I love Jesus. (2) I hate coffee but I’m still addicted to Starbucks. (3) I’m from the northeast but secretly wish I lived in the south. I’d love to get to know ya’ll better – thank you so much to Christine for having me on your blog this month!

 Hi all!  This is Betsy from Musings of a Museum FanaticChristine has been awesome enough to let me hang out this month!  As you can tell from my name I love museums ... I'm hoping to find a job at one but that's another story for a longer post : )  This Museum Fanatic is not just a one note gal though I enjoy so many different things and love to talk to you guys about them!  In addition to loving museums I'm also addicted to Pampered Chef, so much so I became a consultant.  Please check out my Facebook business page as well.  I'm working on putting up the current specials (which are amazing!!!) and posting recipes a few times a week for you.

DIY Christmas

This time of year I love finding new Christmas crafts to do. I think each year I find better and better ones. These are a few I want to try this year.

Do you try a new craft every year or maybe do the same one every year?

Recent Obsession

I recently found out about this restaurant down town called Rawlicious. I took my cousin there for her birthday back in October and we absolutely loved it. Two of the dishes we had were made with zucchini noodles, which were so good I had get one of these little guys so I could make them at home. I like them so much I make them at least twice a week. Today I think I'm going to they making egg plant noodles.

Wishing all my American friends a happy Thanksgiving and a good long weekend!
Happy Hump Day!!

Smoothie/Protein shake

I am addicted to these smoothies, I have one everyday. Usually after my workout or just for breakfast on the days I don't workout. I add protein because I am trying to gain a tiny bit of muscle and also because I'm vegetarian so it's an easy way for me to get a little protein in the morning.

  1 cup soy milk
  1 handful of blueberries (frozen)
  3 strawberries (frozen)
  1 scoop of protein powder 
  1 tbsp flaxseed meal 
  dash of cinnamon 
  Sometime I'll add a banana.

I usually freeze fresh blueberries and strawberries because I like using frozen fruit better. It keeps the shake cooler and I like the consistency better, I do use fresh unfrozen fruit sometimes too.

I toss everything in that small mason jar and just screw the blender bottom onto it and blend it right in there.
How was your weekend? We had our Santa Claus parade this weekend, Christmas is coming so fast.

I've been feeling extremely frustrated the past few weeks. I've been suffering from shoulder pain for about the last 2 years or so. It use to be really bad but since I've started working out with a trainer and have strengthening them, they have gotten a lot better and really haven't bothered me in months. The last few weeks however, it seems to be back worse then ever and I have no idea why all of a sudden it's back with a vengeance.
It starts in my shoulders then moves to my neck, then the front of the shoulders, down into my bicep and into my forearms. It makes it had for me to work or even get dressed, trying to sleep is by far the worst though. I try and sleep on my back with my arms at my side and lately I try to sleep more up right then laying down. I usually wake up around 4am because my arms are aching so bad I can't sleep. It's so unbelievably frustrating when all you want to do is sleep but you can't, it makes me want to scream sometimes. I've been for massages, chiropractor, I have Epsom salt baths everyday and ice it at night and it's still so bad.
I do however, think we are finally getting to the root of the problem. It all seems to be coming from my neck, those little tiny muscle at the base of my skull (which also explains the headaches I've been having) and the little ones on either side. The chiropractor gave me stretches to do a few times a day and that combined with a little more treatment should help relieve it over time. I'm thinking now would probably be a good time to get back into yoga as well.
Sorry to be a downer on such a beautiful Saturday. I really needed to get out my frustration and start thinking positive, have faith that this will go away with a little work and some time. I just want to be able to sleep in peace again.

On a happier note... Do you remember this post from last Friday? It was part of an entry to win a Michael Kors watch over on Nikki's blog Glossy Blonde......and I won! I couldn't believe it when I read her email. I literally jumped up and down, I still can't believe it. This is the first giveaway I've ever won and what a giveaway to win.

Has anything been causing you sleepless nights? I hope not. I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
Happy Saturday!!

Loving Lately

I've been loving the peanut butter cookie recipe on the back of the Kraft peanut butter jar and maybe loving it a little too much. They are so easy to make, this is the second batch I've made in a week :s

All you need is:
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg

preheat oven to 325 F, mix ingredients, bake for 15 minutes and voila they are done.

I know most of you have probably seen these photos by Seth Casteel before but I just can't get enough of them. I'm totally in love with all of his Little Friends photos, underwater and on land. I will be adding this book to my wish list this Christmas. 

I hope these photo made you smile. They always do it for me :)
Today I am also loving my new blog design. A big thank you to Kayla, she is amazing!

1. First snowfall (this morning)
2. Reg Nachos Vs. Vegan Nachos
3. Reese so sleepy
4. Watching The Frighteners Halloween night
5. Halloween movie night snacks. Not so health :s

Now that Halloween is over I want to get out all my Christmas stuff and start decorating. I love Christmas! I like to have the tree up for as long as possible, I just have to convince my fiancé it's time. When do you start putting up your Christmas decorations? We usually go by the rule that anytime after November 11th (so Nov 12th) is ok to put up the tree. Do you think that's too early?
