This strawberry cheesecake protein shake is so amazingly delicious, it's hard to believe it's good for you. And, you will never guess what the secret ingredient is!!

First of all, let me start off by saying it is currently April 23, and it is snowing outside.  SNOWING. I can’t even. 5 days ago, we were sweating in shorts and t-shirts, and today it’s snowing. Shoot me now, and remind me why the heck I live in this godforsaken place. Ok, I feel better now. On to today’s post. So, I mentioned last week that I’m doing something called the 21 Day Fix. It’s definitely been tough, but I… Read more »

Transform plain $1 wooden bowls from the thrift store into beautiful, gold-lined faux ceramic dishes! I love projects like this -- inexpensive and so easy, but you end up with something amazing!

By now, you all know how much I love a good makeover. I’ve done a ton of them on this blog, {like here, here, here, here, and here}. I just have so much fun trying to see the potential in cruddy thrift store items and then bringing them back to life.  Like these wood bowls. I mean, they are fine. They’re your everyday, run-of-the-mill wooden bowls, and you can find tons of them in pretty much any thrift store you go… Read more »

These spicy shrimp are so delicious and easy to make -- and they're super healthy, too! And as a bonus, they work for the 21 Day Fix!

I am bringing you something a little different today: something healthy!  I know, it’s shocking. You all know how much I love my chips and dip, cookie dough, ice cream, and other various sweet treats, but I clearly need a change in this almost-40-year-old body.  This winter made me so ridiculously lazy and hungry — I hardly worked out at all, and I can’t even think about what I was eating, because I will embarrass myself.  So when I saw a… Read more »

Does your dog destroy toys and eat chews before you can throw out the wrapper? Check out this list of my top 10 favorite dog chews for aggressive chewers!

This post contains affiliate links. If you read this blog regularly, you know that we welcomed a new addition into our family in early December. This guy. His name is Fletcher, and he’s the bomb. He is such a great dog {at home, around us. When he gets around other people or other dogs, he loses his mind and goes completely berserk. We’re working on it.}. We’ve been very lucky, especially since he’s a lab, that he hasn’t really eaten… Read more »

Because I only do it, you know, EVERY SINGLE DAY. Dave… Read more »

This burlap bunny sign is so cute, and is such an easy Easter project!

I know I’ve said it a few times now, but I seriously cannot believe that Sunday is already Easter.  I have been woefully behind in sharing Easter projects this year, so I wanted to share a project I did last year for Say Not Sweet Anne. I love this little guy, and he makes me happy when I look at him! I had been looking on Pinterest for some fun Easter ideas when I saw this tutorial on Eclectically Vintage for… Read more »

I think these Bunny Bum Pudding Cups totally fit… Read more »

OshKosh B'gosh has everything you need for your kids' new spring wardrobe!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’gosh. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. #ImagineSpring #IC Moms of boys, let us unite: do your boys outgrow/tear holes in their clothes at an alarmingly rapid pace, or is it just mine? David is getting so tall, it’s ridiculous. He’s not even 10 yet and is 5 feet tall. I have a thing about too-short pants, so he’s been getting seriously… Read more »

Looking for a different kind of birthday treat to serve at your next party? Check out this collection of 20 birthday cake and cupcake alternatives!

We’ve come to the end of party week! Hope you enjoyed the fun party posts all week long. As weird as it sounds, cakes and cupcakes are not my favorite thing to eat — or make, for that matter. When I was little, a lot of times I asked my mom to make me an apple pie instead of a birthday cake. So today I wanted to share some fabulous ideas of birthday treat alternatives — no traditional cakes or cupcakes… Read more »

This Frozen birthday party has so many ideas to steal -- like Melted Snowmen instead of water! (So cute!) Bonus: it was a boy's party, so it's more Olaf than Elsa and Anna. So much fun!

Remember how Sunday was Mason’s birthday? And I made him a monster truck cake? Well, today we had a little party for some of his friends from school. And, much to Dave’s chagrin, he decided he wanted a Frozen birthday party. Dave was all stressed that it would be all princess-y, but I was going more Olaf than Elsa and Anna.  I seriously had so much fun with this party! For colors, I went with white, blues and silver. I ordered… Read more »

This monster truck birthday cake is so much easier to make than it looks. I love that it's covered with graham cracker crumbs and Oreos, because you don't have to have any frosting skill to make it look great!

I am kicking off a super fun series here at Endlessly Inspired today. Welcome to Party Week! Woot, woot! To celebrate Mason’s birthday, I will be bringing you all sorts of party fun this week, so stay tuned! I can’t even believe I’m saying this, but my littlest man is 4 years old today. What the whaa? I mean, seriously, he. was. just. born. So, just stop with the 4 years old stuff. And the poor little guy woke up sick today. I’m… Read more »

When thinking about an anti-aging skin care regimen, it's important to think of the whole body, not just the face! #HeartYourSkin #ad

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #HeartYourSkin #CollectiveBias So I have a bit of a secret for you today: I am turning 40 this year. **GASP!!** I really don’t even know how that’s possible, because I feel like I just turned 30. Hell, I feel like I just turned 20. And the funny thing is, I have never before felt apprehensive about turning a certain age until now. When… Read more »

I love this collection of 20 adorable and easy-to-make  rainbow treats! These are perfect for St. Patrick's Day or a rainbow birthday party!

Rainbows. I don’t know if it’s just because I’m girly, or because I grew up in the 80s, but I absolutely love rainbows. And I always have. When I was little, we lived in Erie, so we would go to Niagara Falls a lot, and there was a store in a mall on the U.S. side that was entirely rainbows. Literally, everything in the store had a rainbow on it. I thought I had died and gone to heaven every time… Read more »

Who are insanely, ridiculously into sports. It doesn’t really matter what sport, either. Pretty much whatever is in season is their favorite sport at that time. So naturally, right now it’s basketball mania in our house. I thought it would be fun to put together a fun little basketball party… Read more »

Use frozen Alexia fries and onion rings to make loaded baked potato fries. #SpringIntoFlavor #ad

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SpringIntoFlavor #CollectiveBias We are big ol’ fans of snacks and appetizers in this house. One of the boys’ favorite treats is to do a “snacky dinner” where we go tapas-style and just have a whole bunch of appetizers rather than an entree. And of course, because I’m me, I always try to find shortcuts everywhere I possibly can. Like with these loadedbaked potato… Read more »

Marshmallow PEEPS ice cream! Are you kidding me?? I can't even believe that this is a thing. The recipe even includes instructions on how to make it if you don't have an ice cream maker! #PEEPSONALITY

I’d like to thank PEEPS® and the PEEPS® Company Store for sponsoring this giveaway. I was not compensated in any way for this post, and as always, all opinions are entirely my own. Is there a more iconic Easter candy than Marshmallow PEEPS®? I know they make them now in ghosts and pumpkins and hearts and christmas trees and gingerbread men and snowmen and crazy flavors like blue raspberry and sour watermelon, but I’m old school. Give me some pink… Read more »

Trivial Pursuit Live! turns the classic game into a game-show setting with a variety of game rounds and rules.  #HasbroGameChannel #CG

I’ve talked before about how much we love game night in our house. Since we had so much fun downloading and playing MONOPOLY Plus, I decided to check out what other games are available on the Hasbro Game Channel. When I saw they had Trivial Pursuit Live!, I was crazy-pants excited and knew I had to try it out. I have to say though, I did have a few reservations at first. I wasn’t sure how you’d be able to answer… Read more »
