Enjoying a round of Disc Golf at home

This post contains sponsored links.

I've been playing disc golf for 20 years. My husband has been playing long than myself. Over the years we've moved in and out of areas within close proximity to disc golf courses. This basket allows us to both practice and, in some respects, play when we are not able to get to a course. 

This basket from Driftsun came unassembled. The instructions were very easy to follow, and I had it ready to use within 5 minutes. The round base allows it to be extremely portable. This is wonderful for moving it around to allow for practice with harder or easier shots. 

It came with one set of chains on the outside of the basket. It does an okay job of stopping the disc, but I think we will get some hooks and add another set of chains on the inside to help prevent the occasional disc from jumping through and out to the other side.
The basket is good quality. It seems very sturdy. It is easy to assemble, and easy to relocate. Other than the issue with needing more chains, it's a wonderful basket. 

You can find this basket on Amazon by clicking HERE.

Divatress Lace Front Wigs

This post contains sponsored links. All opinions stated within the post are my own.

Do you or anyone you know use wigs?  Wigs are becoming very well known in the life of every day people, and not just in the fashion and movie industry.

They are used for need.  When you have hair loss due to health reasons, a real and professional wig is wonderful to have readily available.

They can be used to change up your hairstyle.  A wig allows for a fast and easy addition you your wardrobe and hairstyle without the fuss of going to a professional hair salon.

They can be used for fun.  Wigs are also used a lot in the cosplay and theatre world.  They are a fun way to add to your personality in the world of acting.

Divatress is a leading beauty e-commerce company that offers thousands of wigs and hair care products with everyone ranging from beauticians, professional stylists, students, mothers, and many others.  

Divatress has an amazing line of lace front wigs that look amazing and like your own natural hair. The look is one that would give the confidence of a beautiful hairstyle, and can easily be changed up daily with different styles and colors available on their online store.  

What exactly is a lace front wig?  

"The lace front wig allows the wearer to choose a hairline. The lace is only in the front half of the wig, to allow the wearer to part the hair any way he or she wants.
The lace wig is usually attached with the assistance of glues and tapes, which are applied to the front hairline area. Once the glue has dried, the front lace portion of the wig is affixed to the area where the glue has been applied on the hairline, creating a tight bond which keeps the lace wig in place on the head." (Source)

This is different from the full lace wig, where you have the full lace cap, and generally want to wear a wig cap underneath due to the different way it is attached to the head.

Not only are there are a large variety of styles to chose from, but you can also find those that are heat resistant and can be used with curling irons and flat irons.  On their site you can find everything from a short style:

Medium length:

Long hair:

and even fun colors!

My questions for you about healthy choices

Today my baby Mila turns 4 months old.  As I watch her grow bigger, I have found myself slowly getting back into shape.  

I have been working on my exercise routine.  Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday are my husband and my running days.  We start week 4 of C25K tomorrow.  I am using the Jawzrsize daily.  I will be restarting the Simply Fit Board and exercise program again soon.  I already have a 4 mile run scheduled for the end of April.  

I am also working on healthier eating.  Since most of my meals are home cooked, it is up to me to make sure they are good for our bodies.  I will admit that some days are better than others. Some days we eat sushi, baked veggies, chickpea salad, soups with homemade bone broth, or a healthy stir fry. Some days, like tonight, are fried pick tenderloin sandwiches.  It's a work in progress.  I have cut almost all soda, but still have my sweetened creamed coffee daily.  However, I'm doing good with my water intake, mostly to keep up with my nursing little one.  I also have to keep up my calorie intake over 2,000 a day for nursing.  So healthy fatty foods like avocado and salmon are always a good choice.  

So, here are my questions. 

What is your tip to get back in shape?  
What have you done to keep healthy?  
What little changes do you make on your life?
What are your healthy, go to snacks?
