Happy Monday and Happy Leap Day! Today is DAY 15 for me of my first round of Whole30. I can’t believe I have gone this far while eating completely clean and in compliance with the Whole 30 program. This marks the halfway point. WOOOOOOO! I have never stayed so consistent in my diet in my… Continue reading Whole 30 Week 2 Progress Report
Whole 30, homeschool, workouts, letter N, Fixer Upper (of course), and the usual family of 6 shenanigans. That’s what our week consisted of. Here’s some moments I captured. What did your week include? Any fun plans for the weekend? Hope you have a good one!
So when I was a kid, we drank a lot of sodas. It was the 80s, I think everybody did? And we drank sodas out of aluminum cans. We were a can household, not a 2-liter bottle household. So the cans built up pretty fast and this was waaaay before curbside recycling was really a… Continue reading Kids Earning Income: They “Can” Do It!
Have you ever been hungover? How about from steak? Yeah me neither until yesterday. Wow. I’ll file this under #whole30problems! Today is DAY 8 of our Whole 30 journey. I’ll give you an update of how last week went and I’ll share my steak hangover story. But first I want to celebrate the fact that I’ve… Continue reading Whole 30 Week 1 Progress Report
Should I take bets on how quickly I will kill this beautiful little fern? I picked this up at Lowe’s a week or so ago. I thought it was so pretty sitting on the windowsill in our bathroom, I snapped a quick pic. It’s sad to think it will be dead within a month or so.… Continue reading Snaps from the Week
I am going to preface this post by saying that yesterday was a poo sandwich. It was crappy. It was a day where we took our dog in for intestinal surgery, I was on day two of Whole 30 and subsequently was nauseous and had a migraine headache, I picked up and started wearing my Invisalign aligners… Continue reading The Power of a Shower
Howdy! How was your weekend? Is it still going? For me, well, it’s Monday, it’s President’s Day, and I feel like a fatty. I gotta pull it together. What was going to be a loosening of my usual eating standards over the holidays (ahem, 2 months ago) has turned into a food and drink free-for-all that’s… Continue reading Whole 30 or Bust!
My husband is out of town. It’s me, 4 kids, and one dog for 4 nights. On the surface, this doesn’t sound so awesome. It’s a lot of flippin’ work. My husband has been traveling for work as long as I’ve known him. In the early days (pre-marriage, pre-kids), it was longer international… Continue reading When They Go Out of Town
So it’s mid February and we’re basically having an early spring (helloooo El Nino, where are you?). The kids and I took a walk down to the cul-de-sac across the street a couple days ago to ride scooters, cavort and basically enjoy the sunshine. I snapped this photo to capture the mustard and green grasses growing… Continue reading Pretty Suburbs
