Paleo In Our House Week One

We all have heard of it, we have googled it, read about, researched it.  Wondered why anyone would do it, thought about it, questioned it, tried to understand it.  Well, we are DOING IT … Paleo.  The “Caveman Diet“.  My hubby could not have been more thrilled when I happily announced to him that WE were “going Paleo for two weeks” and it would “be fun”. Sure we eat very healthy, and we are aware of what we are shopping for, we prepare all of our meals, snacks, here at home.  But we were not being strict about Paleo.  What was I doing before this? Stand in the kitchen and eat some chips from the bag. Enjoy a cookie from the jar. Eat chocolate pudding when I made some for the kids.Down an energy drink when really needed one. Have cereal at night when I could not sleep. Woof down…  Read More…

Getting Away In Healdsburg

We are smack in the middle of summer and I don’t know about you, but this has been all about keeping busy right near our own home.  With baseball season going long this year and Noah starting football camp 4 weeks ago, it made it a bit difficult to get away.  Okay, we could have if we wanted to, but being in the playoffs was a big deal for us and Noah is starting is Freshman year this August and football camp is key {especially as a newbie}.  So, this means making the best of what is near by. That brings us to our most current get a way from home.  We went to visit Healdsburg, CA.  If you are not familiar with the area, it is about an hour and half north of Sonoma and just as quaint.  There is shopping, art galleries, food, bakeries, coffee and the Oakville…  Read More…

The Ultimate Coffee Date #4

Good morning, happy Saturday and July!  Wow, this year is really moving fast for me.  I was just in the car this last week with the family and said to my hubby {just randomly} that Christmas was only five months away.  Okay, that’s enough of that, let’s get down to business and take some time to sit and catch up.  Let’s have coffee ♥ If we were having coffee, I would tell you that … I completed my first half marathon {finally} and I could not be more excited to do my next one.  I could just still be on cloud nine and just have not realized how crazy I am to want to do another. LOL If we were having coffee, I would tell you that … We decided to do a “staycation” last week and took the kids up to Healdsburg for a getaway.  About an hour north…  Read More…

Restoration Hardware How Could You?

*Disclaimer* Before even reading this post, please remember that these are my words and my opinion.  I am NOT open to spam or nasty commenting.  I do however believe that everyone has their own views and can share them in an adult and polite manner.  With that said, read on … I was not expecting this post today, but thanks to the latest package that was delivered to my front door, I had no option but to voice my disappointment and disapproval {okay and a hint of disgust}. I knew he was coming, I recognized the low rumble of that big brown truck coming down our quiet street.  Stryker {our family watch dog} was doing his usual,  going banana crazy jumping and barking by the front window and pacing the door.  It was here, the UPS truck.  Where was he going to stop?  Who is getting a package today?  We…  Read More…

That’s It We Are Having Office Hours

Why is it that as we near the end of a school year, things seem to get a bit more hectic? I am filling out more forms, signing more permission slips, sending in more money for something, seeing more projects that need to be completed, scheduling more appointments. That is just school, let’s not leave out sports activities. Baseball teams {yes plural} double the uniforms {keeping them organized with the right socks, belts and pants} double the practice, double the scheduling. Packing snacks, lunches, remembering to double pack for back to back activities, remembering what time to be where and where to be when. Birthday parties, graduation parties, planning, scheduling, making sure to coordinate dates to not overlap with someone else, buying gifts.  Gifts for the graduates, gifts for our graduate, gifts for the special teacher.  Graduation?  Oh yeah, that would be us.  The outfit, must stick to the dress…  Read More…

Find Them Everywhere

This past February I was in  our local book store having some quiet time and enjoying looking for a new book {I also love to stop and smell the insides of them}.  I came across the cutest book from Drew Barrymore called “Find It In Everything“.  The book caught my eye and I picked it up and started looking through it.  I instantly fell in love with it.  This book was more of a project than just a story with pages of words.  It was a project of love, it was art.  It inspired me ♥ Basically, it is a book full of fabulous photos of HEARTS.  Anywhere and everywhere, just hearts.  If we really stop and look around us, we can find them in almost everything.  I found myself smiling as I kept turning the pages.  I thought to myself, what a wonderful project.  I love this idea.  I…  Read More…
