Friday Foodie- Best Ever Pancakes Recipe

Have you ever found a recipe on the internet, and when you look at the ingredients, you seriously consider if it really could be all it's cracked up to be?

Back when I first started staying home and homeschooling, I was on a quest to create meals cheaper than from a box.  Pancakes, I knew, were made with basic ingredients.  I was tired of buying Bisquick or pancake mix, and I knew there had to be a recipe that was better than from a box.  And then I happened upon it.  The amazing recipe I am sharing with you today (with permission, of course!).

Google can take you into crazy places!! I stumbled upon Crystal Godfrey's blog Store This, Not That! and have over the years fallen in love with several of her recipes.  Her pancakes recipe is no exception.   In the link, you can get the original recipe... as well as her amazing recipe for a shelf stable DIY pancake mix as well!!

Click here or on the image for a 5x7 recipe card of the original one bowl pancakes recipe that I love!! 

Let us know if you love these pancakes as much as our family does!! Thank you so much Store This Not That for allowing us to share this fantastic recipe with our audience! I always enjoy sharing others creations!

Foodie Friday- Shawn Johnson's Mom's Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Oh my soul you guys!! About a month ago, I was watching Instagram stories in the car during an appointment lull, and gymnast Shawn Johnson shared her mom's pumpkin bread recipe.  I took a screen shot because I wanted to try it, but it took so long for life to calm down for me to bake again (or even be home again, because we have been living that hospital life... but that's neither here nor there)! My family LOVED this recipe.  It was pumpkin.  But not overwhelming spice pumpkin.  

This is one I will make, again and again and again and again!! Click here to print a 5x7 recipe card, or click on the image for the download as well!!

This recipe is super easy to make!! Her original recipe called for baking it in 5 small loaf pans, but I put it in two regular loaf pans and it worked great too!  Again, we loved this recipe so much and I can't wait to make it over and over this holiday season.  Thanks for sharing it on Instagram Shawn, and congratulations on your new bundle of joy!

Mini Happy Planner Monthly Box Template

So, I haven't really done this in a LONG time... but here is a free template!   If you didn't know, I am a planner girl all the way.  I love my planners (yes I said it, multiple planners) and they have helped me in so many areas of my life.

My faith planner keeps me in step with my note taking during sermons (there is a summary place at the end of every week), prayer request lists, Scripture writing and application... etc.

My big Happy Planner keeps our home life running smoothly for the most part... and my go with planner (a classic happy planner) is my brain.  It holds my daily to dos, my food journal and supplement accountability, my work stuff, and my project running list.

Y'all, I couldn't function without it.

So last year when the Trendsetter Happy Planner Girl came out, and they had those amazing monthly date sticker boxes, I knew there would never be enough for me.  And much to my shock, I went online in search of a template to buy to start making, printing and cutting my own, and there wasn't one!!

So I built a classic Happy Planner template in Silhouette Studio.... and the rest is history.  I am going to share it with y'all...

This template is a Studio file.  You will have to have it to use the file... but good news! You don't have to have a silhouette to download or use the free version of the software!!

I only ask for an occasional shout out to my Planner Girl Instagram Account, and if someone asks you where you got it, please send them through here!! It's free, so it's not like I am asking everyone to pay for it! ... Okay?! Thanks!!

For the mini template, the boxes are turned side ways!! That got more on a page.  I am so glad this is going to add to your own personal Planner Girl Experience!

Three Years' Difference

I struggle often with discouragement.

I don't see the results I want... things are not happening fast enough for me.

I don't think I am unique in that struggle at all.

I started my health journey two and half years ago.  After a ton of research... I realized I needed to focus on health, before weight loss.  My body was extremely damaged.  A life of special needs kiddos and putting everyone else's needs before my own for way too long had caught up with me.

So now, I have been working on my weight loss journey since August of 2018.  I didn't realize how far I had come until my mom shared with me a picture last week.

I seriously wept tears of joy when I created this side by side.  I have changed SO MUCH!!! This journey is really hard, and I think because personal behavior change isn't easy- and that is why so many people give up.

Don't give up!! I love visual encouragement, and this is exactly that kind of encouragement!  I will say, if you have questions about my journey personally, drop me a message, I can totally talk to you about that... or you can find me on facebook!! --->A Family For His Glory Facebook Page<---

I will be sharing more this year over on that Facebook page this year... come and join me!!
