In this space of Anti-Procrastination Updates, I will periodically share with you all the things–things that are important to me, things I want to get to, and things that help make life purposeful and meaningful.


It FINALLY happened! I launched my long-time talked about New Nostalgia The Shop! Did you see it?

New Nostalgia shop offers printable tools printable tools to help you pursue slow, simple, purposeful living in all areas of life. I would love for you to take a minute and see what I’ve been up to. This post will tell you all about it



Lately, life has been all shop shop shop! And not shopping mall shop but launching my own shop. It has been so much fun and I can’t wait to continue to build it up an get more card sets out of my brain (it is swimming with them!) and into the shop.

I’ve also been sooo enjoying the fall season. I just can’t get over the beauty of the trees and freshly fallen leaves. The colors this year are beautiful here in Nebraska.



The Ragged Edge of Night

I’ve been finding time to read right before I go to bed each night. I don’t allow myself to watch Netflix before reading a bit of a book…both are on my Kindle Fire so it is quite easy to read a quick chapter or two, then enjoy a show.

What show? I’ve been watching The Crown series on Netflix.

You will love this book if you loved All the Light We Cannot See or Beneath a Scarlet Sky. It is a historical novel and even though written during World War ll, it is full of hope. I loved it.



Avril Lavigne – Head Above Water

My sister sent me this video/song early one morning, and I watched it twice. Such a very powerful song and brought me to tears. The video is one of the most visually stunning music videos I have seen. I just loved it.



Enneagram Podcast

I have jumped onto the enneagram wagon with both feet and I can’t believe how much I have learned about myself and my loved ones. I keep saying it is like going to therapy to understand how to love others well, but way less expensive.

I am a 2 on the Enneagram, which is the Lover/Helper. This podcast episode talks all about the 2, and what is unique about the podcast is there is a song written and broken down/talked about for each number.

The song for #2’s seriously was my heart in lyrics…I had tears streaming before the chorus started!

I almost don’t want to link it because the song so exposes the most vulnerable parts of how I am wired, but it was so good I just can’t keep it to myself.

My reaction was about how it expresses how I deeply love others, but also how at times loving others so deeply leaves me depleted and yearning to be loved and seen in the same way.

By the end of the song, I realized this is how my Father God loves and sees me, and ultimately what will fulfill my deepest longings.

Do you know what number you are on the Enneagram? If so, I must know…comment below and tell me!


Tohi Defend Rocky Mountain Oil Immunity Supplement


RMO Defend Supplement

After getting 3 colds in 2 months last Fall, I was frustrated with my immune system so I started taking this supplement.

I have not had a cold or virus (although my family has passed colds around the house several times this year!) in over a year and I truly believe this is why.

I wanted to give it a good year before sharing with you, to make sure it was a product that truly does help Defend! Ya’ll. It does. It is by far my favorite supplement.

It is from RMO & contains 2 types of mushrooms (MycoFusion Cordyceps, MycoFusion Maitake) and their very popular Sacred Immune Strength Blend, which contains these essential oils:

  • Clove Bud
  • Cinnamon Bark
  • Lemon
  • Orange
  • Oregano
  • Mandarin
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • Nutmeg
  • Ginger Root
  • Sacred Frankincense

From the Label: “Tohi’s Defend Immunity Supplement empowers your immune system and protects your body from various environmental and seasonal threats. Packed with antioxidants, Defend helps guard you against new threats during times of sickness, while supporting overall vitality. Defend also promotes healthy immune function and overall physical health.”

*The bottle contains 2 months worth of product for $29.95



Laptop Desk

One of my favs, Chalene Johnson,gives the best recommendations from Amazon. I have bought two things she recommended and they are both amazing items that I use daily:

1- My beloved iPhone case that holds my id and a credit card, stays shut by a magnet and has a little kickstand. It is also super protectant. The best!

2- My most fav wireless headset that sounds almost as good as my daughters top of the line Beats but is 1/4 of the cost.

These headphones are a more recent purchase and I cannot even tell you how much fun I have cleaning my house or making dinner with these on. I either listen to music or a great podcast.

I love the freedom I have to MOVE without a cord hanging in the way or a phone in my pocket.

The laptop desk would save my neck when on my laptop in bed or when typing away when sitting in my swing chair…like I’m doing now!



Almond Butter Thai Salad

My Todd has been making my Make Once Eat All Week Chopped Detox Salad recipe every week, and it uses half a head of red cabbage, so I am always looking for ways to use the other 1/2!

I think I found it! The recipe is from Simply Quinoa and it looks so delicious.

I make quinoa in my instant pot once a week. The method I use is included in my Staple Pressure Cooker Recipe Card Set. 



Immune Strength 

I’m still loving the scent of the Rocky Mountain Oil called Immune Strength oil in my all-purpose cleaner, especially because we have been having some cool, rainy, fall-like weather!

Yes, this is the same oil blend that is in the Defend Immunity Supplement I linked above. This is a powerful blend!

Think citrus and cinnamon together…yum. Bonus: it is a calming fragrance. Therapeutic cleaning..I’ll take some of that!

Enjoy the recipe below, and if you want more, purchase my 10 DIY Whole House Cleaning Solutions Card Set in the New Nostalgia Shop.


All-Purpose Cleaner

This is a breeze to mix up and works so well. Add essential oils for scent and their cleaning properties. A great surface cleaner that you will use and love everyday!

  1. Add all to a spray bottle (I've been using these dark amber glass bottles and LOVE them!) and shake.
