12 Delicious and Satisfying Drinks


Shakes and smoothies are one of the best on the go drinks that can make or break you depending what is in them{calorie wise}. They are great for meal replacement, snacks, to cool off or great after a workout to help your muscles. Each and every one of the shakes and smoothies below are yummy and full of what your body loves. You can put 1 scoop of whey protein powder or a packet in each one and voila you have a protein enriched drink. By far my top favorites are the chocolate mint minus the mint with the fat-free, sugar-free pudding mix in it and the orange creamsicle. The ones below are just 1 portion, but they are large portions and my husband and I have always just split it in half. If you would rather a shake base....replace the 12 oz. water with 1 cup of milk. Hey, you might like it. That is the best thing about shakes and smoothies, because you can alter them so much. If you start with less you can always add to it to make it what you want.

Here are a few of our favorites:

Coconut Splash Fruit Smoothie
o 8 oz Coconut splash water
o 1 cup frozen mixed fruit

Blogging Goals for the New Year ~2014

"My blogging goals for this year are..." That is the question for Finish The Sentence Friday Blog Hop on Janine's Confessions of A Mommyaholic. I have thought about this for quite a few days. Well actually before the FTSF Hop took a holiday break. My first thought for a goal was to be more dedicated. It was soon decided that wouldn't be the goal for the new year. Dedication takes time and so much more time that I really do not have. Over the last year, I have spent WAY too much time on the computer. I consider myself a small blogger, I don't have ads, do lots of parties, giveaways or even have sponsors. That way works for me and it keeps from making me crazy. I did try it for a while and it proved to be more than I wanted. When I started blogging, I did it as a hobby. People actually reading my blog was a far thought from my mind. I really had no idea what blogging was all about and how much dedication it takes. However, in the last year I feel like I have gotten a handle on blogging and what I want out of it. So it makes it easier for me now to decide what I wanted for this upcoming year.

Happy New Years 2014


Happy New Years! We hope you have a year full of all the things you want it to be. The choice is yours! A new day, a new beginning. If you wanted to do something last year and didn't get to....maybe it wasn't that important. Life is what you make it. We have had a wonderful year. Grateful for the good times and the not so great moments. The bad things just teach a lesson and it is up to us to figure out what that lesson is. It has been a true blessing everyday that we receive. I am grateful for each and every follower and reader of Consider Me Inspired. Cheers to a NEW YEAR!

10 Almosts of 2013

Everything is not perfect, just because another did a project and had no issues or made that fabulous goodie or dish doesn't mean that the next will have as much luck. I make lots of projects and I have my share almost projects as well as fails. Part of what I do as a creator is go through that process of elimination. I don't mind admitting what didn't work for me. It never hurts to try something new and if it works, that is fantastic. If it doesn't work, then you know what to change the next time; if you decide to do the project or make that recipe again.

Where do I get my inspirations from? 

o Things made growing up with my mom, school projects and crafts I did on my own.
o Seeing a fabulous set up in a magazine(often Pottery Barn) or in a store like Kirklands and even kid stores.
o I scour Google and Bing images for a subject that I am interested in creating and I brain storm off other peoples creations. This is normally my go to process and I often scan and wonder what I can make that hasn't been made already or even how can I change another project to reflect our families needs or interests.
o I also scan through Pinterest for inspiration.

***I never try to create something exactly the same as another. I like to make everything I do my own. It works out a majority of the time.***  I am an over analyzer, so when it comes to projects around the net I often wonder how they did it and sometimes I try it out for myself...exactly as they said.
