This week, #Vote4Monday is in YOUR hands…

Photo Information: This week’s photo I thought I would give you a sneak peek into what I’ve been working on.  This picture is taken straight from a small section of one of the walls in the nursery.  A little teaser.. 😉  Enjoy!  Can’t wait to share pictures of the nursery tour when it’s completed!!

#Vote4Monday’s Topic (week 5)


Unfortunately, I’m skipping this #Vote4Monday because I’ll be on the road and won’t be able to write a blog post.  However, I will be resuming the schedule of #Vote4Monday next week.  I apologize for the inconvenience.  I know everyone looks forward to the voting4monday topics, being on the road all weekend, 23 weeks pregnant, and my whole week is booked next week it’s really to make sure I don’t make promises I can’t keep.  I hate that.  So instead, I’ll deliver the bad news first and hope everyone understands!  I will be posting a blog next week about my travels over the weekend so do stay tuned for that!!

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and enjoys the beautiful weather (at least it’s beautiful in Washington State!)

Thanks to all my readers for taking time to read my blog!

#Vote4Monday’s Topic (Week 4)


————-(Update) Again, I posted this on Friday and it didn’t show up.  It’s as if I can only post one blog topic per day or it get’s deleted.  I can’t figure it out.  I apologize for this not being posted on Friday, I guess I’ll just stop posting more than once on Friday’s.———————–

#Vote4Monday-(Week-4)

Rain again?  That’s okay!  We’ll be busy working on the nursery so continue to rain Washington! Hope everyone has something fun or eventful planned for this weekend.  I consider resting or sleeping all day both eventful and fun-fyi.

Maybe you can even come up with some awesome ideas for next week’s #Vote4Monday’s Topic!

Just like week 2, this week, I get to choose from the topics YOU think of. That’s right, whatever topic interests you in the health field, you got a question about a supplement or mineral, you want to know about a diet fad, you want another recipe, or you got a subject that you’d like to know more about ‘health-related’… post your comment “entry” for your chance at getting your topic voted on! I’ll review the topics, in the comment section over the weekend.

Monday, I’ll post the results of who WON and what topic I voted for! I’m so excited to see your entries! So give me as many topics as you want, there’s no limit to how many topics you can give me to choose from! 🙂

#Vote4Monday’s Topic (week 3)


#VOTE4MONDAY_Week3(TITLE)

Yes, it’s almost weekend time!  Time to get some work done and enjoy the beautiful sun in Washington state.  Saturday we’re going to bask in the sun on another hike and get some more house work done!  Sunday, is Superbowl Sunday, so of course we’ll be… ON THE ROAD!  Let’s see.. no one will be on the road so that sounds like a perfect time to take advantage of the zero traffic we’ll encounter.  Where are we going?  I have no idea but as long as it’s not football related and doesn’t contain the blue/neon green colors… who cares? I just hope everyone is having fun at home while we are enjoying the open road. 😀

I also hope ya’ll find some time this weekend to VOTE4MONDAY’s topic! #VOTE4MONDAY_Week3


If you aren’t familiar with how this works, let me give you a quick run-through.  It’s simple.  This week, I’m posting blog topic options that you get to choose from for your vote.  Whatever topic gets the most votes, is the topic I discuss on Monday.  Next Friday, you get to submit topic requests that I get to vote for.  It alternates week to week.

All you have to do to vote is choose a topic option and submit it below in the comment section.  (All votes need to have the #Vote4Monday before the topic choice, so I know it’s a vote)

#Vote4Monday’s blog topic (week 1)


Vote4monday’s blog topic is a new concept I thought of this week, that will be an on-going weekly event!   Every week (either on Thursday or Friday) I’ll post a *VOTE4MONDAY* [category] with 4 different blog topic options for you to choose (1) to vote for.

VOTE4MONDAY

My inspiration was to figure out a way to engage my readers *ahem* you, to participate more in the ‘comments’ section and vote for a topic that you find interesting.  I would like to get more readers and voters too, of course!
After you vote, feel free to include other topics of interests that you would like me to consider for next week’s voting session!  🙂

By 4a.m. Monday morning, the topic with the most votes is the topic I’ll be writing about for Monday.  Woohoo!
This gives you a bit of control over what I write about too…

[See: submission form below and copy and paste to the comment section]

So without further ado: choose one of the topics below

  1. Sneak-peak recipe (from the cookbook) -option one
    Snacks: Sweet Yellow Curry Cashews
    Recipe includes how to make and pictures
    Never before released to the public from the BestFood4Life cookbook [in progress]!
  2. Eggs are freaking awesome! 
    Learn the difference between eggs ‘types’ and why they are so healthy!
    Find out what nutrients are available from eggs and how those vitamins help your overall health.
    Also, to yolk or not to yolk?  THAT is the question that everybody’s asking…find out the answer in this blog post.
  3. Calcium Supplements are HARMFUL?!
    Learn why taking calcium supplements actually do more harm than good.
    Magnesium and Calcium are both friends and enemies. [explained]
