Summer is just about to kill me people! I am so ready for school to start back so that I can have my peaceful routine back! Summer is wonderful, don't get me wrong, but it is sooooo incredibly busy (swimming, water park, parties, swimming). I need my routine back.
I wanted to tell you about a few random things this week so I'm just going to do a list. I love lists. they make me feel so 'together' on days like this.
1. I'm on day 19 of being a vegetarian and I don't really miss anything except for the occasional carbonated beverage (which isn't allowed on our plan). Oh how I love my not-so-good-for-me Diet Sunkist. I don't miss meat at all! We have a few favorite recipes now that I hope to share soon. My favorite has to be mushroom quesadillas, they totally rock. Ben has lost almost 20 lbs and I have lost at least 10, so the weight seems to be coming off easily. I think the most rewarding thing for me is that I feel good about what I'm eating. Where some days before this I may have eaten 500-600 calories a day of good quality nutrition and the rest were empty or poor quality calories, now I get at the very least 1100 calories a day of good quality calories and nutrition. I feel really good about that. This ole body needs all the help I can give it.
2. I found more audio books that you may like (FREE ONES!!!) by Isabella Alden, Grace Livingston Hill's Aunt. You can find them here. I have read a couple of her books and they are very good, and a lot like Grace's. :)
4. I haven't used my camera near enough this summer and I know I'm going to be mad at myself for that later... so I'm going to post a picture everyday for the next seven days to get my lazy self back in the habit of having my camera attached to me at all times. These kids are growing up way too fast for this kind of laziness!
remember this). I may make doilies, I may make a yoke for a fall dress or shirt for me or the girls....I don't know. I've also thought of doing some of those covered rocks I'm seeing everywhere. What do you think? Have you seen any new or cool ideas lately? Link me up!
