a degraff update

i'm feeling the need to blog more and keep a better record of my life as a mother, wife, and, individual.  i've been slacking and i know for FACT that i will regret it in the future.  there is so much that i want to remember during these fleeting times. i'm making a resolution to be better!

anyway, did you know i have a pintrest board?  well, i do.  it's fun to pin things and it helps me be a better person.  it also gives me fun ideas that will help my kiddos and i live life fully.  there are lots of pins that i have incorporated in my home (little tips here and there, things that have made my life easier, delectable recipes (both sweet and savory) and lots and lots of other fun, inspiring things!  so, this is my plan- i am going to post things i do from my pinterest board and share it with YOU!  how fun.  i'm thinking this will motivate me to do more.

you may ask yourself  "how does kristen have the time to not only try out things off her pinterest board, but blog about it too?"  don't fret.  i have the time.  my laundry might not get folded or my bed made, but i'm accepting the realization that it's ok to let things go here and there.  i want to be a MOTHER, not the maid.  i'm going to run my house and stop letting the house run me.  so there.

the first thing i'm going to post from my pinterest board is this lovely little number.  the triple chocolate chunk muffin.  i made them and they are really, seriously yummy!!  now look at the ingredients.  they are HEALTHY!! so healthy!  i was completely skeptical when i was gathering the ingredients.. in fact, i warned clay that they were really healthy and he was not amused and didn't even want to try them.  but then he did and he loved them.. and so did my kids!   

*two little tips- don't add any chocolate chips before putting them in the muffin tins.  just sprinkle them on after or you will have too many in some muffins and hardly any in others. - they aren't as rich as i like my desserts.  so we tried putting land o lakes whipped cream (0 carbs) on them and that did the trick.  super satisfying treat!
