Ever since I've moved to Austin, I've lived a lot healthier lifestyle! I try to do trails or hike as much as I can. I love it here. I love being outdoors. My biggest problem is food. I love food and I love to eat. I eat too much junk food and need to make sure I'm getting all my daily vitamins.
Wal-Mart Supercenter is less than 2 miles away from my house and I knew they had Nature Made vitamins. Plus, they have everyday low prices so I don't have to wait for a sale! Nature Made vitamins were affordable! When I got there, I was impressed with their selection! I spent a good quality of time figuring out which vitamins best fit my healthy lifestyle. I don't know much about vitamins, so it was nice how Nature Made had information on the label of what each vitamin helps with.
Since vitamins are new to me, I wanted to start with a multi vitamin. I found a Multi for Her Nature Made vitamins - that are gummies! What? Gummies? I was very excited! Reminded me of candy. They taste good too! I also bought fish oil. It has 300 mg OMEGA - 3! I've taken fish oil in the past. The problem with me taking fish oil is it made me burp. I know, gross. When I was at Wal-Mart looking for fish oil, I saw Nature Made has a "burpless" fish oil vitamins. I laughed out loud. It is purified to remove mercury†! It also helps support a healthy heart†!
The Wal-Mart selection of Nature Made was great, it took me a while to decided the next vitamin. Nature Made® has a variety of vitamins, minerals, and supplements (VMS) to help support nutritional gaps with your health goals in mind ranging from Digestive Support, Heart Health & Function, Energy Metabolism, Women’s Health and much more!†
With the weather change, I needed a vitamin to help support the immune system. I'm ready for this cooler weather. Texas summers are not pleasant sometimes. I do not like the over 100 degree summer days. With cooler weather, comes colds and sickness though. I want to make sure I'm as healthy as I can be so I decided to get vitamin c which helps support the immune system†. My next choice of vitamin is super B-complex. Sounds complex! ;) I wanted to give it a try because of the cellular energy production and antioxidant support†. With my new hobby of hiking and outdoor adventures, I wanted to make sure my body can keep up and be active.
At Wal-Mart supercenters, they also carry Nature Made® Probiotics: Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotic has been clinically studied and provides dual support to both your small and large intestine for comprehensive coverage to help support digestive balance and healthy gut flora.† I was surprised they had probiotics! Very good way to start or continue a healthy lifestyle!

I love Ana White. To be more specific, I love Ana White's woodworking plans! Her plans are easy to read and easy to build - she lists it all out for you. Most of my furniture is from her website - www.ana-white.com.
This dining room table and benches are from her website. Check out the plans here: http://www.ana-white.com/2012/11/plans/farmhouse-table-updated-pocket-hole-plans
I have a horrible habit. I love her plans so much because of the pictures. I'm a visual person. That being said, I'll read the shopping list, cut list, and then look at the pictures and build. If I get stuck on how to do something (since I'm still new at this woodworking) I'll ask my friend, or just guess (not the best idea). I should just read her site on how to do things.
I LOVE how this table and benches turned out. I learned a lot of new techniques from it, and used tools I've never used before!
I did not know how to make 1.5 inch notches out of the 4x4. My friend told me I needed to chisel them out, so he came over to help. Thank you, C! He had to work harder though, because the only chisels I had were from my wooden spoon making kit. Tiny and not good quality. He didn't know till he got to my house. My bad. I bought a bigger chisel the next day to make it easier for me. Scotty loved helping! She is going to be a woodworker. :)
For the top, I used wood filler and a sander for the first time! It was easier than I thought! I always get nervous using new power tools because before my first blog post (the prayer board), I've never touched a power tool. Sander was easy and not as intense as I thought! I guess I was nervous I wasn't strong enough and I wouldn't be able to control it. It was easy! I bought the Ryobi brand, because the other Ryobi tools I have are great - I trust the brand. I also used Spax screws. They gave me samples, and I'm in love. I don't like pre-drilling, because I feel like it's a waste of time. Which it's not, because you need to do that so your wood won't split. I didn't know with Spax you don't need to pre-drill!!! What?!?! Why did nobody tell me?!? I'll be using Spax from now on! Oh, and thanks for the samples!
I then made two benches. Of course, plans from www.ana-white.com -
I wanted to make the benches before my daughters 4th birthday party, so I rushed in making them. I made a few mistakes ;), I fixed them though!
Also, I didn't end up following Ana's plans. I made the top of the benches, just like the dining room table. I used pocket holes. Ana's plans for the farmhouse table started out without pocket holes, then she updated the plans with pocket holes. You just use the same technique as the table for the benches. I love pocket holes because it's a strong hold and brings the wood closer together, so I didn't have to use wood filler as much.
So happy with the end result. I love this table/benches! I bought the end chairs on sale at Target. Love love love it! Spent less than $200 on the table and benches.
What do you think? Let me know!
I do most of the furniture by myself, with the occasional help from a friend. This table was HEAVY. I got help from the niece, nephew, and son - Connor. Follow my snap chat to see what I'm working on! You'll see a lot of bloopers haha.
Thanks again for checking out my blog!
