Advocare Group Challenge Update


Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a fantastic weekend.  Ours was filled with an equal mix of fun, relaxation and productivity.  Yeah there was some serious laundry folding going on on a beautiful sunny, Sunday afternoon but it has to get done somehow right?  Shane was napping and Nathan and Greg were out fishing (for the second time this weekend), so at least everyone else got to have ...

Nathan’s Splash Bash!


With Nathan's birthday being right in the prime heat of the Summer, we thought a Splash Bash would be a fun way to keep the guests cool this year.  I had originally planned a big party at one of the local splash pads but as the date approached I just didn't think I could pull it off.  We have always had help in the past years, but this time I knew it would just be me and Greg trying to make 10 ...

Nathan's Birthday Survey 4

HAPPY 4th BIRTHDAY!!! I can't believe you are 4 years old today sweet Nay!  There aren't enough words to describe how much we love you and what you mean to us.  Hearing the pitter patter of your feet running down the hall every morning makes my heart skip a beat.  I can't help but smile as you jump into my arms and we squeeze each other with all of our might as we start a new day together. You ... [ Read More ]

Nathan Golf 2013

See that little golfer pictured below?  He is turning FOUR in 2 days!  We have been busy planning some birthday surprises for him, and of course doing a little party planning.  I decided to scale way back this year and just have a few of his buddies over our house, but I just can't help myself when it comes to crafting up a few party things.  We are really looking forward to celebrating his ...

Workout Wednesday {running edition}

brooks adrenaline GTS 13

Well I finally hit a big running milestone this past weekend...I ran 10 miles!  Double digits!  It felt great, and I'm feeling more and more confident about the decision to run my first half marathon in 2 months.  I'd like to keep working on my endurance and speed, upping my mileage a bit more, and trying my best to stay injury free.  In an effort to do so, I'm convinced that the right running ...

Meal Plan Monday


I hope you all had a great weekend!  Ours was pretty uneventful and relaxing but I will still post a recap because I like looking back on our weekends together...even our quiet ones. I have several people I know on the Advocare 24 Day Challenge right now, or some that are about to start so I thought I would put up our clean eating menu for the week if you were looking for some ideas.  Even if ...
