My Love Patches….Part 2 <3

Hello Beautiful One’s

So, Im still showing major love to these “love patches” of mine! 🙂

I definitely wanted to keep my lovely readers up to date with my hair growth progress. I went back for my 2nd dermatologist appointment yesterday and …..1/3 of my spots are gone!! The injections and Biotin vitamins( I failed to mention this on the first post). 

Only 2 more spots to go.....Yay!

Only 2 more spots to go…..Yay!

I was given more injections in the last two spots. Also, I was prescribed Rogaine for Women, so that my hair growth isn’t delayed. Im so excited for the new hair growth. 🙂 I was assured that even though this is an autoimmune disease,  I wouldn’t always have Alopecia Areata….as long as I avoid stress. I am super psyched for more hair growth because I want to try highlights again…a little change never hurt anyone, right?

I am due back in one month and will definitely keep you all updated! 🙂

How do you avoid stress? If you have it, how do you handle having Alopecia?

DIY Food: Healthy Ice Cream

Hello Everyone!

I found this really cute website called Kids Activities Blog. They have all sorts of fun activities for the little one’s to do..traceables, art and crafts, in/outdoor activities, and RECIPES!

My kids love ice cream and sweet treats, so i thought i would try my hand at some homemade ice cream. Not only would I save money, but i could do something fun that they could remember always….awwwww!! ❤

So….I tried with this recipe…i really tried. Second time around will be the charm. 😉

I started by freezing my bananas on wax paper last night. Secondly, I put my bananas in the blender. Now…this was no small feat…I had to end up churning my banana ice cream with a spoon after all. I would highly suggest a food processor for this recipe.The frozen banana didn’t do well with my blender…in fact i thought for sure i would have to buy a new one, so I added a little milk to make it blend with ease. Thirdly, I mixed my cocoa powder and my almond butter(the recipe said peanut butter, but i’m sure you can substitute it depending if your child has allergies) with my banana. Lastly,I put my fresh and healthy ice cream in a sealed container to freeze. I did check on it after 3 hours and its creamy and light tasting!

My kids can hardly for their sweet treat tomorrow!.

Here is the link for you to DIY too! 🙂  Leave me a comment in the box below on how your recipe turns out.

Oh How I Would Love to Do Some Things in Peace…

While being pregnant with my first child, I never thought that getting some private time in would be so bad. I mean, all i had to do was leave her in her bouncy seat and take a quick shower. But oh boy, when I had my second child, things change even more drastically. By this time, she was walking -everywhere and he was crawling.

As parents, we want and need some private time! We love our children and will always want whats best for them. At the same time, for us to save some sanity, we have to take time for ourselves. It’s important for single parents, but seems a little more important for people in relationships, or marriages because too much time not focused on why youre together in the first place can lead to you ending what you had to begin with as well.

Things “I Would Love to Do in Peace” for starters is 1. Go to the bathroom in peace(without having a head peep through the door, “So…Mommy, what ya’ doing?” and eat my food in peace without having “Hungry Eyes” give me the guilty look for not sharing off my plate what i have already given them…

Why do kids think everything looks better off mommy and daddy’s plate? 🙂

Peace and Blessings,

This is my children stalking the food on my plate… 🙂
