Becky’s Bites of Life- Read more for a fun recap of my life this past month and highlights from the blog! (Plus I’ve added a new section called, Things I’m Loving Lately!)
Happy New Year friends! Can you believe it is 2017 now!? I feel so excited about this year and feel motivated to make life even better this year. My focus this year will be to simplify and enrich. My life is busy with four kids and with my husband being so busy with work and school, I hope to focus on what’s important and cut out what’s not. My goals for the blog are to share more recipes that are simple, healthy and family-friendly. (I’ll definitely share dessert recipes too though since I love to bake!)
What do you think of my January collage? I thought it’d be fun to make one each month with the foods that remind me of each month.
Here’s a quick recap of last month.
The Most Popular Recipe in December was…
I had so much fun creating this recipe (and eating it too!) it was SO delicious! Just swap out the green and red M&M’s for regular colors and it’s not a Christmas recipe anymore. 30 Simple and Delicious Christmas Cookies came in a very close second.
And my most popular recipe of the month that wasn’t posted in December was Christmas Muddy Buddies. This is a great recipe year-round just add different types of M&M’s!
My Favorite Recipes in December were…
My favorite post of the year! Thank you all so much for making my blog what it is. You’re all the best! I wish I could bake you all my favorite cookies!
Another favorite post I love putting together. I love sharing good recipes with you all and these and some of my favorite from last year!
Becky’s Bites of Life:
December was a much needed month to relax! My husband has had a month break from school (back again on Friday) and it has been so nice! It was so great enjoying so many Christmas activities with our kids. They were more excited than ever for Christmas and it was our most magical Christmas so far! My brother and his family were in town this last week visiting from Ohio and it was so great to see them again and my boys became best buds with their youngest son. I wish we lived closer!
My cute little family on Christmas morning!
Fist bump! Luke is 3 months and I keep falling more in love with him! He’s such a sweet baby and makes us all so happy! (Although I wouldn’t mind a little more sleep!)
Things I’m Loving Lately:
I though it’d be fun to add another section to Becky’s Bites of Life. I love hearing about products and things that people love so I’ll be sharing my favorite things here each month. I won’t be annoying and say I like “this” product or “this” recipe. (With a link to click on it to see what they are talking about.) Does that drive anyone else crazy?!
-I FINALLY found an awesome face lotion that actually keeps my face from feeling dry! It’s Eucerine Anti-Wrinkle Face Creme. It’s the best!
-I love Paul Mitchell Smoothing Glass Drops Frizz-Free Polish. It makes my hair look so much better after I’ve blow dried it.
-I’m on baby #4 and I’m still learning new things! I can’t believe all these years I’ve been using Enfamil Vitamin D drops. I never liked them as they were messy and have artificial ingredients and I don’t know why I never thought to try something else! Luke has always hated it and it makes him gag so I just stopped using it until I found something else. Well I did and I’m so glad! We now use Carlson’s Vitamin D drops and it’s amazing! He only needs 1 little drop each day. He likes it and it makes us both so much happier. Took me long enough!
What products or things are you loving lately? I’d love to hear!
