About Me

Hi, I'm Mrs. Happ! I love Jesus, Mr. Happ and being a mama to our little man. I live off of a steady stream of bone broth, kombucha, Spanglish & top knots. And when I'm not busy chasing a toddler, I love me a good creative endeavor. Welcome to our "HAPPy Healthy Casa". I'm so glad your here. Read More

  • 🥬 Collard Greens in Underwear 🥬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We had a play date at our house this morning with two other little ones. Their mother and I coordinated themed learning time for the kids in Spanish, and divvied up the work. She brought over instruments and taught us a new song all about vegetables. I planned this vegetable themed craft for the kids to do together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After our hard work, we all enjoyed these little collard green wraps I whipped up this morning with just some simple organic turkey and avocado inside for snack. And can I just say - every kid at least gave them a whirl - and some ate more than one! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The power of play with veggies is real ya’ll. Not only that, but so is the power of collaborating with other mamas! We both brought our giftedness to the table this morning, and it made for so much fun. .

  • 🍦Double tap if you love a good ice cream sandwich🍦 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I made some Vanilla Almond PB ones today that made my 3-year-old actually pause after the first bite and say “Thank you, mommy. I love you!” 😘, without prompting. Manners and affection? I consider that the ultimate seal of approval right there 😉. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the “sandwich”, I used some of our @nutsolaofficial Vanilla Almond DIY Superfood Bars that I whipped up yesterday to have on hand for snacks for the week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the “ice cream”, I whisked together the following:
1 cup Almond Milk
1/2 cup PB
2 TBSP Honey
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
A Pinch of Sea Salt
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once smooth, I poured the mixture into ice cube trays to freeze. Then I placed the frozen cubes into a blender to create this heavenly creaminess you see here. 🍨

  • Last year we did the “ABCs of Summer” and had so much fun with our daily alphabet themed activities. This year, I’m bringing it back for this second half of the season with a slightly different twist. Enter “ABCs at the Market”.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of my favorite things about summer is venturing to the local markets and perusing all of the fresh produce and local goods. Not only that, but we love receiving our CSA box from our local farmers each week, and even learning how to grow some of our own goodies in our backyard. So I figured, why not tap into all of the things that are already such an integral part of our summer routine and use them as inspiration for some continued letter/sound practice as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today I prepped Asher with this sweet and informative story, “On the Farm, at the Market” and surprised him by decorating his learning space with a little festive “market” decor. Tomorrow letter A is on the docket, and I’ve got something tasty up my sleeve! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Feel free to follow along with your littles each day as well, and check in on my stories daily for more details. .

  • 📖My Story: Part #1📖
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I get a lot of questions in regards to why I eat or don’t eat certain things, why I take certain supplements or implement certain practices and even the how and why behind my struggles with anxiety. While all of these needs and understandings about myself certainly took a lifetime to build up, I can pinpoint specific moments in my life that had the greatest impact on my “why”. So in order to paint a better picture of what brings me to the place I am today, I thought I would share a few key pieces of my story over these next few weeks to help you all (and maybe even myself as well) to understand a bit better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My junior year of high school I developed mononucleosis. While for most teens this is miserable in itself, I simulataneously developed a throat infection which my body could not fight off, landing me in the ICU. I underwent several surgeries to remove abscesses and open my airway. There were many uncertainties about if I would have paralysis or lingering effects and that was if I made it through in the first place. Needless to say it was a stark lesson in the fragility of this life here on earth at a young age. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After a month or so, I was by most standards back to normal. Sure, I had physical scars along my face and neck, but other than that I was “fine”. I was just ready to get back to being a 16-year-old girl and at that time, just regain enough strength to head to the spring dance with my friends. I had little concept of or concern for how this could potentially affect my future. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What I didn’t know then, however, that has taken me years to learn is that I  harbored scars that weren’t as easily seen from the outside. There were emotional scars from living through such a traumatic event. I harbored internal scars from being pumped with drugs and antibiotics for days and days. And I now most certainly harbored the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), which is what causes a mononucleosis infection. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • 🚲Bike Painting & Giveaway🚲 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We took our art outdoors today with a little bicycle art. I laid down a few sheets of white butcher paper then splattered paint in various locations around the paper as well as on each of Asher’s tires and then let him go to town. Each pass across the paper created a new fun colored rainbow 🌈 path. Not to mention it provided for some fun sensory play as he squished his toes in time and again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
