-Add a statement necklace

-Pair it with a maxi skirt

3 Tips to Stay Committed to a Healthy Lifestyle + a Daisy Cottage Cheese Recipe!

Committing to a healthy lifestyle isn't always easy, so today I'm sharing 3 tips to stay committed and a recipe as well!

1. Keep healthy foods in your fridge and you'll eat healthy foods!

If you're having a hard time avoiding the Oreos in the cupboard and the ice cream in the freezer, don't buy it! You won't even have to fight the temptation, you'll just have to pick something else to eat from your fridge full of delicious healthy food. A great option to keep in your fridge is Daisy Cottage Cheese!

2. Find a workout buddy

I've been wanting to join a yoga class for forever! I started going on Tuesday nights with my sister in law and boy does it motivate me. She's super fit so I always find myself pushing a little harder when I work out with her. We also use to meet up with friends at our local gym and it was always more fun to workout when there were friends there to chat with.

3. Make a plan

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Plan your workouts the night before, make a dinner meal schedule and stick to it. Write it down. Schedule it in your planner or iPhone. Anytime you plan something it will be more likely to happen. 

Living healthy isn't always easy. McDonald's on every corner, and endless television on Netflix make it really hard. But the good news is, you can pick up Daisy Cottage Cheese at your local grocery store! 

Daisy Cottage Cheese has just 90 calories and 13 grams of protein (26% of your daily value!) per 1/2-cup serving of 2% cottage cheese, you can enjoy low-fat, 100% natural cottage cheese without giving up the creamy, delicious taste.

Whether you’re enjoying it as a quick snack or making a healthy meal, Daisy Cottage Cheese will help keep you going throughout the day. 

100% pure, with no additives, preservatives, or added growth hormones it’s also an excellent source of protein, a good source of calcium, and gluten free. It doesn't have any of the additives or preservatives found in other leading brands. Boo yah!

The Lowfat Cottage Cheese only has 4 ingredients and Original Cottage Cheese only has 3! 

It's pretty easy to see why the Daisy Difference and Daisy Cottage Cheese can be a great help when trying to live a healthy lifestyle full of delicious food! There are lots of cottage cheese recipes out there but here's an easy recipe for Bananas & Cottage Cheese...

What You'll Need:
2-3 teaspoons honey
1 banana

Place 1/2 cup 2% Lowfat Daisy Cottage Cheese in regular bowl.
Add 2-3 teaspoons honey.
Slice up banana.
Add banana to Cottage Cheese & honey.

Wall it Graphics, An Industry First!

I've always been obsessed with holidays. It was one of the reasons I think I was originally so drawn to elementary education. Wear fuzzy holiday sweaters? It was my dream. Wear big dangly leprechaun earrings? So much fun. And paint tiny pumpkins for an activity with people who think that's cool? Yay!

But one of the hardest things about loving holidays so much is finding inexpensive, cute and low-maintenance decorations. Am I right? (You may all shake your head "yes")

So that's why I'm sharing Wall It Graphics with you! They have fun holiday themes, quotes, sports, religious quotes, kids wall decals, and they do custom work as well.

What are 10 things YOU'RE grateful for?

Disneyland Mythbusters!

Yo. I am Mindy from Best.Day.Ever. 

While Brooklyn is away, I've come out to play!

Like Brooklyn, I am an avid Disneyland goer! After the age of 10 or so, I lost track of how many times I had been and have never kept up since. I just know everyone should go as often as humanly possible! :)

So! For your enjoyment, while Brooklyn is in Disneyland, I thought I would debunk/confirm some of the Disneyland secrets that are floating around the internets! They just might change the way you Disneyland-it for-ever! 

1. Pirates of the Caribbean: Real skulls are used in the ride 

Fact. All of the skeletons and skulls you see on the ride are fake, except the one in above the bed. It is easy to tell the difference between the real one and all the fake ones. Apparently, back in the day, all of the skeletons were real because they were cheaper and easier to come by {how is that even possible?!}. But now that is the lone real skull left.

2. Toy Story Characters : They will fall if you yell,  "Andy is coming!"

False. This used to be true, however, kind of like when kids ask there parents, "Are we there yet?" it got old and they characters stopped dropping to the ground when the declaration was made. If you yell "Andy is coming" the characters will no longer drop. However {!!!!} the jury is still out on if you yell, "Bonnie is coming!" ;)

3. Haunted Mansion: If you ask the host/hostess in the front foyer and ask for death certificate, they will provide you with one.

False. In the past, if you were able to convince the host/hostess that you had died, they would provide you with a death certificate. But Disneyland decided they didn't want anyone to take anything home with the word "dead" on it, so the practice was discontinued. However, if you ask, they will happily tell you, "I am sure you will get one day!"

4. Mad Hatter Tea Cups: Not all the teacups are capable of spinning at the same speed

Fact. If you want the fastest tea cup, pick the purple one!

If you want a few more mythbusters, come join me over at Best.Day.Ever. for a few more!

Can't wait to see you!
