Monday Vlog: Remodeling Our New House

Dallas, Texas, Family, Lifestyle

These couple of weeks I’m planning on editing all the footage up to date, and I’m going to upload all of them on our family channel .

Here are two recent videos that I already uploaded:

This one is Day In The Life video (at Children’s Park). The Dallas Arboretum park is absolutely gorgeous any time of the year, and it’s probably our favorite park for family activities in Dallas.

And in the second video ↓ you will see a sneak peak of our {before} master bathroom. It’s a part 1 of the remodeling, when we’re excited about choosing all the materials, and appliances, color paints.

Black swimsuit whether it’s a one-piece,a  tankini or a bikini is such a classic piece for me. It looks good on anyone and it’s always in trend. Here I chose some black swimsuits that are perfect for summer, great for any body types and some of them cost only $15 🙂

12 Weeks Meal Plan | Week 9

Food/Recipes, Lifestyle

Taco Sweet Potato and Spinach Egg Bake

taco-sweetpotato-egg-bake-recipe

(source)

  • 3 small (12 oz) sweet potatoes, coarsely grated
  • 6 large eggs or 3 large eggs + 1 cup egg whites (my choice)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper, ground
  • 1/2 tsp taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup any milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup any cheese, shredded (I used full fat white cheddar)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp jalapeno, seeded & minced (for kid friendly I used 1/2 tbsp)
  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach
  • Cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, line 8 x 8 square baking dish with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.*
  2. In a large mixing bowl add eggs, salt, pepper, taco seasoning and whisk for 30 seconds. Add milk, cheese, cilantro, garlic, jalapeno peppers and whisk to combine.
  3. Add sweet potatoes and spinach, mix, transfer to prepared baking dish and bake for 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before cutting. Serve hot, warm or cold.
Storage Instructions: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to a week or freeze for up to 3 – 4 months.

Notes

*You could also use a non-stick muffin tin, just make sure to spray it REALLY well with cooking spray or use BPA-free silicone baking cups. I also like to double the recipe, bake in 9″ x 13″ baking dish and freeze for later. Please note, baking time will increase by about 20 – 25 minutes, depending on your oven.

Avocado Boat

Cut an avocado in half, the long way. Remove the pit. Get creative and stuff with your favorite salad, cuisine, or an egg.

Here are couple of options:

Pico De Gallo: Chopped tomato, red onion, garlic granules, jalapeño, cilantro, Himalyan sea salt, and lime juice.

Turkey BLT: Off the bone turkey breast, nitrate-free bacon, chopped tomato, fresh spinach.

March Currently

Dallas, Texas, Everything else, Family, Lifestyle, Thoughts

Hi everyone, and welcome to my new series of monthly posts “Currently”. At the end of every month, I’m going to share with you what I’m up to, exciting news, obsessions etc.

So this month I have been:

Reminded of how important it is to live right here right now..at the moment, and not when the weather gets better, a house is bigger, next month, or when you have more money. I’ve been reminded of that happiness is a state of mind and doesn’t depend on the circumstances (you might think it does, but it doesn’t).

Reading articles and posts on Facebook and Google. Just news, tips on parenting, articles that catch my eyes.  I would be glad to read an actual book, but I don’t really have much time for it these days. The last book I read was “Me Before You” and it was several months ago. It’s a really great book, and I can’t wait to see the movie which is coming out in June.

Watching. Usually, Daniel and I have date (movie) nights on Saturday and Sunday after we put kids to bed. And this month we watched all 3 parts of IpMan, Joy, War Room and Deadpool. Great movies! Deadpool is my least favorite from the list! It doesn’t have a deep meaning to it, but nevertheless, it was fun to watch, it’s definitely very different movie, and if you haven’t seen it you should..as you should watch all the movies that I mentioned above 🙂

Enjoying double date night with our friends. We had a dinner at our favorite Thai restaurant, and then went to Karaoke place, came home at 2:30 am. No kids, just adults, and it felt GREAT!!! (and I don’t even feel guilty for saying this lol). We had a really great time singing Karaoke, and I would share the video with you, but it’s just too private LOL.. I posted a short 15 sec video on Instagram though. By the way, are you as excited as I am about a new Instagram update? 1 min video instead of 15 sec!!!  Continue reading “March Currently”

Moody Family Children’s Museum

Dallas, Texas, Family, Lifestyle

perot-museum-livingwithjane

If you’re planning to visit Dallas (with or without kids) definitely check out the Perot Museum! We love this place! And Christian (my 2 y.o) loves to have fun at Moody Family Children’s museum (located inside the Perot Museum). It’s big and there are so many things to do! He can spend the whole day there and not get bored. I like this place because it’s not just a playground for kids, it’s a discovery museum, where they can learn different things, explore and have a great time at the same time!

Moody Family Children’s Museum is divided into different sections:

Miniature Dallas Farmer’s Market

Here kids can pretend play. They can wear aprons and pretend that they’re farmers picking different produce, loading/unloading the truck or they can pretend that their truck drivers etc.

1. Heat oil in a frying pan until pretty hot and saute chopped kale (center ribs removed) for 2 minutes with a little salt. Set aside kale and wipe out pan.

2. In a bowl, beat one egg and season to taste. Add oil to frying pan. Pour beaten egg into pan and let it spread thinly. Lower the heat. Once the omelet is cooked, use a rubber spatula to gently fold the omelet into quarters.
