I didn’t think I was gonna workout today, but then I remembered that Bubs mentioned that he would like some help with the front yard this week (cause he has been kicking butt in the backyard). So, I mowed the lawn with my hair down for some extra sweat action (or sass, whatever you or my neighbors would prefer). Sometimes I love doing Bubs’ chores.
That’s right, today we got a bargain…actually bargains, cause there were two! This morning our neighborhood had a garage sale with over 29 homes involved, so Bubs and I set out at 8am to see what we could find! And find we did. You know all that work that we have going on in the backyard? Well, today we took a giant leap forward and purchased some furnishings that will fit the...
happy birthday april
Today is my sister’s birthday! It kills me to be away from her on her birthday and would much rather be able to celebrate with her in person. But instead we have to have our own little party to celebrate (any excuse, right?!). Happy Birthday April! We love you and pray that the year ahead will be filled with fulfilled dreams, answered prayers, and a whole lot of love! This year past...
So many people have asked us what the Paleo diet includes and excludes and this says it perfectly…it is just missing the why. So, that will come another day. But one step at a time. More Health and Fitness News & Tips at Greatist.
I just love it when I find shoes that I like can actually buy them! Today I received an email from DSW for $10 off any shoes. Then I remembered that I have a $20 off coupon in my purse. Then I asked it how I can get free shipping and my original shoe cost was over $49, so I put in the code and got free shipping. As a last ditch effort I looked up coupon codes for DSW and found another $10 off...
when's the next tea party
Like a real tea party, not the political kind. Cause I want to make these and eat them! So not paleo, but a small exception could be made. (source) You likely guessed it…it is from Pinterest. Follow me!
I love sharing remodeling photos cause it reminds me of all of the hard work we have done and all of the hard work I had forgotten about! The kitchen was a group effort! Bubs’ dad came out to sunny California for a week to help us and Bubs’ older brother came down for a long weekend while his dad was here to help knock out the majority of the hard stuff. Thank God dad-in-law is a...
I have been trying to switch to deodorant without antiperspirant and it isn’t good. Maybe it takes time for my body to change from one to the other…ya, that is what I am going to tell myself. So, don’t mind my stink.
I’m totally on a home DIY projects kick now, so I feel like I have to share everything with you…one by one. So, today I would like to share our exterior facelift…to just the front of the house. The backyard is our next action item, so you can’t see that yet. This is what the house looked like when we bought it…well, the grass was dead by then. Here it is from...
The master bathroom that is! So, I was recently reminded that I haven’t shared our remodeling projects with you all…what have I been waiting for?!?! Without much further adieu…our master bathroom remodel. When we moved into the house, we didn’t use the master bathroom, we didn’t clean it, nope nothing. We just closed the door and pretended it wasn’t there...
I just survived a 2 mile run. It has been a while since I just went running. It felt good. And Mya is pooped.
on the wild side
Going to a 9:35pm movie (21 Jump Street) after a 45 min. roam at Ikea (I’ll share my favorite picks tomorrow) is just one of the benefits of a husband that works a random schedule and me not having to work tomorrow! This is what we call living on the wild side! Yup! Update: Awesome movie! Very funny, but it is rated R. So, all of the things that come with that were there. I seriously...
the easter bunny is here
Or at least she was here, cause she left us some eggs. On the kitchen table… Oh, I love the one she hid in the lantern! By the TV (right side only…the other side didn’t have good lighting)… On the side table, between the couches… Okay, I’m the easter bunny in this house! And I got my eggs at Home Goods for $7.99 a dozen. Let’s take another...
it may be a miracle
I’m not going to figure out how God intervened, but my CT Scan of my brain’s blood vessels came back normal! I am so thankful! And now, we can put that behind us. My sister needs to get tested…hint hint, I know you are reading this Monkey (that is her real name, my parents didn’t consider how that would effect her down the rode). So, you certainly pray for her as...
