Printable Project Checklist | Fall One Room Challenge | Week Two

Hello again friends! This past week has been a little bit chaotic. I'm a mom before anything else, and mom duty called. It called at 1AM the other night to be specific. Nothing can wake a parent up faster than your child standing next to your bed in the middle of the night uttering the phrase, "Mommy, I don't feel good". I'll spare you the details, but I've done about 50 loads of laundry in the past 72 hours. Yay! Needless to say, I didn't make much progress on my One Room Challenge this week. I do have some details to share with you on our paint and flooring choices, but first I have a little something for you! (In case you missed it, you can catch up on Week One here!)

Kid Friendly Office Inspiration | Fall One Room Challenge | Week One

Hi Friends! I'm a guest participant once again in the Fall One Room Challenge. This year for the Fall One Room Challenge, I’ve decided to (finally) tackle the office. It’s not functional at the moment, and pretty much is used as the room that stray things get dumped in. Not exactly what I had planned for it. When we moved into our home last year (the week before Christmas!), we had a whirlwind 3 weeks of demo-ing walls in the interior and exterior, painting, flooring, lighting…it was crazy! Looking back, I have no idea how we accomplished everything that we did in such a short amount of time. That might explain why we burnt out a little on the projects around the house and are just now getting back into DIY mode!

Sugar Free Low Carb Root Beer Float | Trim Healthy Mama And Paleo Friendly

It might officially be Fall on the calendar, but so far the weather around here hasn't noticed! Although, it's not as bad as it was a few weeks ago (over 100*) but it’s not quite sweater weather yet. To stay cool, I've been making quite a few Sugar Free Low Carb Root Beer Floats. Something frosty to drink that is nice and icy and won't kill my diet? Root Beer Floats for everyone!

As I've mentioned before, I'm trying to stick with the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan. I discovered this sugar free soda by Zevia a couple of years ago, and it quickly became a favorite. It is sweetened with stevia, and if you're not used to the stevia taste, it might take a little getting used to. I love it though! I wanted a root beer float recipe that didn't use ice cream. There are sugar free brands out there, but I had a hard time finding them at my local grocery stores, which ironically do happen to carry Zevia brand soda. So I figured out a way to make my own! It’s a little more “slushie” instead of “ice cream”, but the taste is perfect – just like a root beer float!
