For Those beautiful Teeth!

October 08, 2015

I love sharing something when it is such a steal- especially with Christmas gifts in the back of my mind, you will LOVE this!! 

The Aura Clean system came in the mail and I instantly wanted a second one to give to Chris.

Within the sleek Aura Clean Base station, there is a UV-C Halo which is a ring of germ killing light that attacks pathogens from all angles.

The Aura Clean Base Stations keeps the brush head protected, clean and away from environmental contaminants also dries the brush.

Unreal right?! The World’s Cleanest Toothbrush has arrived!   

Coupon code: caseysmiles 

Discount: 50% off, bringing the price from $200 to $100

The Aura Clean System from Vanity Plaent comes with a toothbrush and clean station, and provides exceptional cleaning to whiten teeth using the best state-of-the-art ultrasonic technology in two easily controlled cleaning modes, professional and sensitive. 

The Aura Clean toothbrush is cleaned and charged every time it's placed within the Aura Clean Station core (the dome toothbrush base). The Clean Station is a circular, dome UV lamp that cleans and sanitizes the toothbrush by using it's UV-C ryas to destroy germs. This keeps the brush head protected, clean and away from any environmental contaminants and also dries the brush.

sweet sisters.

October 06, 2015

Can we just talk about the sweetness of sisterhood?
 I have so been missing out all of these years!

Goodness these sweet girls- seeing their relationship and knowing that they will hold this close forever, it's the most beautiful thing.  

Someone who looks like you. You look into her eyes and not only see yourself but your mom and dad also. You’ve been side by side since birth – so much to walk through together.

Ainsleigh and Aiden are soooooo close but now with him in school everyday its given the opportunity to blossom a new closeness between my girls. 

My prayer is that they always confide in each other, rely on each other and look out for one another. I pray all the fun girly outtings we do together never change- the giggles, the tea parties and the painting of fingernails. The singing in the car and the talking of daydreams.

I love how they are so different yet share such a common bond. Apple is my little mama- such a precious spirit for taking care of others, always swaddling up baby dolls and our little puppy Ellie. She will fall asleep feeding a baby doll or wear one on her back all day- it's in her, she adores it. She loves to take care of others. 

My Ainsleigh is a ball of adventure and light. Always chasing the excitement and lighting up a room.
She wants to be independent and is such a leader. 
It will be so fun to see how these beautiful qualities in them play out as they continue to grow. 

These sweet girls have filled a place in my heart that I never knew was there. My days with them are filled with love and joy. I am such a lucky lady to have the opportunity to help shepherd these beautiful hearts that bless me so!

Simple Life. Oils in the Evening.

October 04, 2015

In case you missed my first simple life post ( oils in the morning) you can check it out here
and my afternoon post here

 I know, the opposite of what you think. New way of doing things? Intimidated, overwhelmed.
Not so much, they have made everything more simple. 

This is our evening routine involving oils and Young Living products! 

Around dinner time I have the diffusers going in every room. 
I pull out the oil "GeneYus" and put a drop on the back of Aiden's neck before we begin homework, along with Peace&Calming on his wrists.

I pull out our oil infused bath salts for bathtime and have lavender and stress away oils nearby. 

Then we grab our oil "SleepyIze" and they each roll it on their chests. This is part of the kidScents collection- its all prediluted and ready to go! 

I like the oils Tranquil and Cedarwood for Chris and I. At night I use the ART youngliving face wash and toner. Then I have a rollerball on my Frankincense and roll it directly on my face. This is a FAVORITE.

I put Stress away and Joy on my wrists/ chest. Then climb into bed! We adore having all of these amazing products, it's so empowering to have these tools to support each person in different ways! 

For more information you can always read more here

 and here is a quick video for a DIY pillow spray! Also a part of our nighttime routine!

Apple Cake | ROSEMARY WILD-1-5

Mary Beth Johnson is a wife and mum to four schooners, as she's dubbed her children. On a normal afternoon, you would find her in moccasins, skinny jeans and a comfortable tee, camera in hand. Recently moving to the suburbs of Atlanta, Mary Beth spends her days homeschooling, sneaking away to the bookstore, trying to act the part of a southerner, and sifting through recipes in The Vegetarian Times. Food is her love language.

Apple Cake | ROSEMARY WILD-1-2

I was sitting in our church home group listening to someone read a Psalm and thinking about God's promises and answered prayer and years that are bitter and years that are sweet. This time last year I was giving birth to our fourth baby and moving further south after a year of upheaval and uncertainty and sometimes I think things hit you unexpectedly and in a whole new way. Seasons change, people change, but God. He is the same.
  Apple Cake | ROSEMARY WILD-1-4

I look around me this fall and feel grateful for this place I am in. For our health and our happiness and our babies that make us smile. For answered prayer that long went unanswered and for hard things that make us beautiful. I remember my friend telling me over a long-distance phone call that we need to stack answered prayer up like stones on a mountaintop and I've never let that picture out of my mind. It is important to make apple cake for friends and sit around the table counting our blessings. Stacking our dishes like promises kept and prayers answered.
  Apple Cake | ROSEMARY WILD-1-3

 from Date Night In by Ashley Rodriguez 
Makes one 8″ 

 Unsalted butter, for the pan 
1.5 cups all-purpose flour 
3/4 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
 3/4 cup granulated sugar 
3/4 cup canola oil 
2 eggs 
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
2 medium-sized tart apples such as granny smith, peeled and cut into 1/2″ cubes. 

 Preheat the oven to 350. Butter or spray an 8″ round cake pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper and butter the parchment. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar in a medium bowl. In another bowl whisk together the oil, eggs, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, along with the apples. Use a rubber spatula to fold all the ingredients together until combined. (The batter will be very thick.) Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, spread until level, and place in the middle of the oven. Bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack before inverting and then cooling completely. This cake is best the day after it’s been baked. Wrap well in plastic wrap and leave on the counter overnight.
