Lime Shrimp Tacos only 3 WW Smart Points

Today is not only Cinco de Mayo but it is also Taco Tuesday!  So that means it's time for TACOS!!!

I am so in love with Lime Shrimp Tacos, it would be a crime not to share. 😃

If you are following the Weight Watchers Freestyle Points system, these bad boys are only 3-4sp each depending on which plan you are on. That's amazing for this power packed delicious meal.

Mix and put in a glass container and set aside.


In a large pan, melt remaining butter and saute garlic together

Add the shrimp

As the shrimp turns pink, flip them over.

Add the juice of half of a lime or 10-12 drops of Young Living Lime Vitality (to taste, we like it with lots of lime).

Add cilantro to taste and then place in a glass or stainless steel container to serve. (Don't forget that when you are working with citrus oils, you need to have them in glass or stainless steel container)


Warm up tortilla

Add cabbage

Add Shrimp mixture

Add 1 Tbs of sauce on top.

Sprinkle with remaining cilantro
and enjoy

Remember, it's important to know that not all essential oils are created equal. You can't just go out to a retailer & trust that you're getting the good stuff. Lucky for you, I've got a source I trust.

How We Paid off Our Van in 12 Months

It feels like yesterday that we started this budgeting journey. I was pregnant with munchkin #2 and we finally got the van that I had been saving and saving for. We had $6100 to put down on that van, which took us 2 years to save, not bad right? HA! I was so happy to get that van because the one stroller didn't fit in my Ford Escort, I knew that a double stroller was not going to work.

That monthly payment was a lot for us, (about twice as much as my last car loan) but we were going to make it work.
About 2 weeks after we purchased the van our church had a workshop about finances and gave out a book. That book was the start of a journey to financial freedom. I was hooked. I started watching other programs and reading more and more about how normal people like us become debt free. I gained strategies from multiple resources and put them into practice.   
Every extra dime we had went to pay off the van, if I used a coupon, then the value of the coupon went to toward that van. If my husband worked extra hours, it went toward that van. I know it sounds crazy but tweaking just little things you do on a daily basis can put an extreme change in your habits. 
We were able to pay off that van ($29,000) in 12 months, on one income, with 2 babies in the house. Did you read that right? YEP 12 months $29,000 and that van is MINE!!!!  I am hooked. I can't tell you the happiness we feel every month now that we don't have a car loan.  I know that this works and we are now on a CASH ONLY budget. We are not using Credit Cards or Debit Cards.
At this point in our lives we only have the mortgage as our debt. I want to have that paid off and be truly financially free! (I mean really.... can you imagine having NO MORTGAGE?  I can't wait!
