Daily Planner Printouts To Keep You Organized

Daily Planner Printouts

I am big fan of making lists! Without jotting down all of my to-do’s and goals each day, I feel totally lost and unorganized. I am also someone who still likes to hand write out my daily tasks … There is something therapeutic about putting pen to paper, as opposed to making a list in my phone or on my computer.

I really enjoy taking a few minutes each morning to write out my daily agenda. In addition to my schedule, I also tend to jot down my goals I have for the day, things I am thankful for, and any other little notes that come to mind. It’s amazing what you can accomplish and realize about yourself when you stop to think your thoughts and feelings each day. In a way, writing out your daily schedule like this is similar to having a mini daily journal entry.

Never able to find a daily planner that has everything I need on one page, I recently decided to just create my own daily planner printouts! I wanted to share them with you guys so that hopefully you can print them out and enjoy them as much as I do!

To download them, just right click, save and then print!

Family Photo Album: Hawaii

Earlier this month my family and I took the most amazing vacation to Hawaii to attend a friend’s wedding. We spent a glorious and relaxing week on the island of Maui (I seriously did not want to come home). We stayed at the Marriott Wailea Beach Resort, which was absolutely lovely, and they took great care of us! The trip was just what I needed … A little rest, a little fun and lots of quality time spent together as a family!

Now that my children are a little older, it was especially fun for me to watch them run around and play, and just be together. Aden loves swimming, and he and my husband had an absolute blast together in the pool. The Marriott Wailea had one of the best family pools at a hotel that I have ever seen (now that I am a mom, hotel features like this are my new normal!). The hotel also had these awesome kids’ teepees you could rent that Aden and Ariah absolutely loved.

We made some really special memories on this trip. Their laughter playing in the pool was completely infectious, and I couldn’t wait until the next day when we would get to do it all over again. Life can get so busy, and this vacation reminded me of the importance of taking time off to be with my family without outside interruptions.

Every time I go to Hawaii I am reminded of what a special place it really is. I can’t wait until the next time we go back. I’m so excited to share with you guys the photos from my trip, I hope you enjoy them!

Let me know where your favorite places are to take a family vacation!

Beautiful Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

Happy Easter from tameramowry.com

Hi guys! Easter is coming up this weekend, I am so excited to spend time with my family, and carry on my favorite traditions with my kids like an Easter egg hunt in the back yard, and dying Easter eggs! When someone told me recently that you can dye eggs naturally without traditional store-bought food coloring, I was really intrigued and decided that I had to try it. It turns out that it is pretty easy to dye eggs at home using different foods, and the results are absolutely gorgeous! So beautiful in fact, that I had to share with you all how I did it!

START by hard boiling a dozen white eggs and set them aside so that they cool to room temperature. Once your dye is ready, place each egg into the jar of dye you have prepared, and allow to sit for one hour. You can pull your eggs out periodically to check the coloring … If you want your eggs to be more vibrant, then leave them in the jars a little longer! You will notice that some colors take faster than others. The light green dye (done with spinach) takes the longest to color an egg, so I recommend leaving the eggs in the dye overnight to get that nice light green color!

FOR THE DYE:

Yellow: 2 tablespoons of turmeric, combined in a saucepan with 2 cups of water and a tablespoon of sea salt. Bring to a boil for ten minutes and pour the liquid into a jar with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.

Blue: 2 cups of frozen wild blueberries, combined in a saucepan with 2 cups of water and a tablespoon of sea salt. Bring to a boil for ten minutes and then strain the liquid into a jar with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.

Mocha / Light Brown: 2 cups of strong coffee placed in a jar with a tablespoon of sea salt and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.

Pink: 2 cups of chopped beets, combined in a saucepan with 2 cups of water and a tablespoon of sea salt. Bring to a boil for ten minutes and then strain the liquid into a jar with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.

Purple: 2 cups of red wine placed in a jar with a tablespoon of sea salt and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar. Shake well to dissolve the salt.

Light Green: 2 cups of chopped spinach, combined in a saucepan with 1.5 cups of water and a tablespoon of sea salt. Bring to a boil for ten minutes and then strain the liquid into a jar with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.

Hope you all have an amazing Easter!

9 Inspiring Books for Women and Mothers

Between spring cleaning and checking in on those New Years resolutions, this time of year is a great opportunity to get refreshed. Inspirational reading always gives me a new perspective on life and I’m always up for getting lost in a good book. Anyone feel the same? I rounded up 9 interesting books – both from this year and before – that are sure to refresh your outlook on womanhood, motherhood, marriage and life in general. Let me know what you think!

9 Inspiring Books for Women - Tamera Mowry1. The Gratitude Diaries: How a Year Looking on the Bright Side Can Transform Your Life by Janice Kaplan. You know how important I think a positive outlook can be, but sometimes that’s easier said than done. In this book, you will learn just how much gratitude affects your own outlook on life – from the perspective of someone that’s experimented with it personally and researched it extensively. Gotta love seeing New Years resolutions come true!

2. Glimpses of Grace: Treasuring the Gospel in Your Home by Gloria Furman. This book is all about how to appreciate the little moments in life. It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut, but that’s life – it’s not about making every moment exciting, but learning to appreciate even the not-so-thrilling ones.

3. The Fringe Hours: Making Time For You by Jessica N. Turner is for the woman that is always taking on everything. You know you need to make time for your interests and passions, but there doesn’t seem to be a minute to spare. Turner helps you make the most of the tiny moments that could be used for you.

4. Listen, Love, Repeat: Other-Centered Living in a Self-Centered World by Karen Ehman. If you’re not completely happy or just feel like something’s missing, Ehman provides a solution: giving. How being kind and lending a helping hand – even in the smallest ways – can lead to our own fulfillment. This book is based on the idea that living a self-focused life is what really leads to unhappiness, and loving others is the key to joy.

5. The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brene Brown. Brown has written many things since this book came out, but this one is a must whether you’ve followed her work or are just now discovering it. It’s not just the motivation you need to feel more comfortable in your own skin, it’s a tried-and-true approach to finally living the statement “I am enough”.

6. Happy by Darren Brown is a good basis for a lot of the topics the rest of these books tackle. Instead of just striving to be happy, Brown helps us find out what happiness really is, and why we want to achieve it.

7. Love Unending: Rediscovering Your Marriage in the Midst of Motherhood by Becky Thompson. The first line you’ll read when researching this book is “How can I remember how to be a wife when it takes all I’ve got to be a momma?” Thompson just gets it – sometimes we don’t feel like we can give each and every part of our lives our all, including our marriages. With 21 days full of inspiration and challenges, Thompson helps you rediscover the love that brought you to this point.

8. Surprised by Motherhood: Everything I Never Expected about Being a Mom by Lisa-Jo Baker. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again – no two mothers’ journeys are alike. This memoir from the perspective of a woman who never thought she was fit for motherhood is sure to inspire any mom who has questioned her journey along the way.

9. Bread and Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table with Recipes by Shauna Niequist. Lastly, this book focuses on the kitchen table as a way to anchor the relationships in our lives. Party memoir, part recipe book, it’s all about the way meals don’t just nourish us, they bring us together. A good book and tasty recipes… You can’t go wrong. ;)

Have you read any of these books? Let me know which books are inspiring you lately.

5 Tips for Spring Entertaining on a Budget

Now that spring is finally here, it’s time to start thinking about entertaining. Just because the holiday season is long gone doesn’t mean you don’t get to play hostess every now and then. There are so many reasons you might want to invite people into your home this time of year, but don’t worry – you don’t have to spend a lot of money to show friends and family a great time.

5 Tips for Spring Entertaining on a Budget -  Tamera Mowry

How to Entertain on a Budget

Host a potluck. People have mixed feelings about potlucks – guests don’t always want to feel forced into it, but it can be a great way for an already busy hostess to save money and time, too. The trick here is to make it worth guests’ while. If you’re going to host an event potluck style, be sure to take on something else instead. Give guests a guide or suggestions on what to bring instead of a strict menu, and offer something like ample drink options or custom décor in order to make the event feel special.

Cheap cocktails. Beer and wine is often cheaper than a bar full of alcohol, but it can still add up. Create your own cocktails with bubbly for a fun, inexpensive alternative to traditional event offerings. With a little fruit or a homemade simple syrup, you can take sparkling cocktails up a notch and not need to worry about getting the fanciest bottle.

Create an ambiance. A lot of people think you need great flowers to create a beautiful centerpiece, but you can actually create a fabulous tablescape without the blooms. Opt for a little greenery (preferably from the farmers market – you’ll get the best prices) and lots of candles instead. You can even buy votives in bulk for the occasion, allowing you to save room in the budget for more important things. This looks even prettier outside, so if you’re entertaining in warm weather you’ll be able to impress guests without completely transforming your backyard. If outside, hang bistro lights for an added oomph!

Create a paper table runner. Instead of expensive linens, there are tons of pretty printed papers that can double as a table runner or placemats. You can even buy a roll of kraft paper for less than $5 and create a rustic base to arrange all those candles on. This handy trick also makes the table a lot more personal for your guests to enjoy.

Keep it casual. Who’s ever said no to a casual hangout? Especially when the temps warm up. If you’re on a budget, don’t go overboard trying to make an event more formal than it needs to be. Guests aren’t always thrilled about spending a lot of money on an outfit or dinner anyway, so they’ll be relieved to attend a casual dinner party during a season with so many weddings and formal events.
