livingsimplistically Vegan strawberry (mug) shortcake. I introduced the concept of mug cakes to my daughter who in turn introduced me to her go-to recipe. I used my homemade strawberry preserved and made a "whipped" cream using coconut milk. Craving conquered . #sweettoothdoneright #vegan #mugcakes #snacks #sweettooth #dairyfree #livingsimplistically #sweets 20h
  •   mrsbillingsley That looks sooooo good! 20h
  •   nursedee81 Omg I got cravings too ! Help ! Will this be on the blog? 20h
  •   livingsimplistically @mrsbillingsley it turned out really good. A little too sweet for my liking but I'll be saving this gem for those late night cravings. I'll put it up on the blog but I won't have the step-by-step photos. Let me try and find you the recipe now @nursedee81 LOL! 19h

livingsimplistically Spotted these adorable slate garden markers on here and found them at @worldmarket today! I should've asked my husband to write them out since his handwriting is near perfect, but mine will have to do. I'm praying we get a good turnout for our first attempt . #garden #urbangarden #markers #homegrown #excited #growyourown #noGMOs #livingsimplistically 21h

livingsimplistically On Snapchat (livsimplistic) I'm talking about fitting things into my schedule like running while my son is meeting with his tutor. With creative thinking and planning we can find time to exercise. Now to prep dinner before heading for swim. Oh, and I also gave a runner's tour of the beautiful Hyde Park, home of the POTUS. #momonthemove #rundone #mylegsstillhurt #runner #hydepark #runwithme #chicago #busymoms #noexcuse #livingsimplistically 2d

livingsimplistically <on the blog> Today, I'm sharing my DIY African Black Soap shampoo recipe, finally! This has been added to my daughter's hair care regimen and I love how moisturized it leaves her hair. Black soap has an abundance of medicinal properties and is gentle enough to use on your face.

livingsimplistically My husband told me to be ready by 6:45p and gave me instructions on what to wear with no details . I usually don't like surprises, but I'm enjoying this moment. #anniversary #8years #surprise #celebration #Godisgood #marriage #dateyourspouse #livingsimplistically 4d

livingsimplistically Meanwhile, as the only female in the range I held my own. I was a little nervous because I didn't shoot with my gun, but I qualified. Look at that cluster . My husband, my first teacher will be proud. #ladiescanshoottoo #gunrange #myhubbytaughtme #shooting #icanhangwiththeguys #livingsimplistically 6d

livingsimplistically Conceal and carry class at my house tonight. If my husband didn't register me and if his friend didn't instruct and come to my house, I wouldn't be here . At least I have a friend to giggle with. #myhusbandmademe #concealandcarry #safety #foid #livingsimplistically #protection #homeprotection 7d

livingsimplistically Tested out the new workout faculty this evening with my daughter (the neon spot). I thought this time would be used as my momma moment, but she still wants to hang with me so I'm not turning her down. I'm looking forward to swimming this week . #fitmoms #mommydaughterworkout #workout #health #fitness #lift #tone #livingsimplistically 1w
