{Thursday Thoughts} My Whole30 Experience

So, I had planned on sharing my Whole30 Week 1 Diary today but I’m already off the program. It was not my jam.  Here’s how it went: Day 1 – Tuesday Breakfast – Banana and black coffee. *Forgot to boil eggs the night before, big fail! A banana was the only thing I could quickly grab and get out the door before work. We have a Nature’s Table but a fruit cup was the only Whole30 approved thing they have. STARVING until lunch. Lunch – Tuna tossed with salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar over salad with olives and a whole avocado. This was actually really delicious. 1:30pm – Finished lunch and  still starving!! By 2:15 was feeling much better. I think the food […]

Book Review: Strong Looks Better Naked by Khloe Kardashian

  When I saw that the Literary Ladies book club was reading Strong Looks Better Naked by Khloe Kardashian I was intrigued. This isn’t a book I would have picked up on my own for a couple of reasons. For one, I’m not a huge follower of the Kardashians and I find it hard to take them seriously. Plus, I’m not too much of a fan of books or memoirs written by celebrities in general. On the other hand, Khloe seems like one of the more sane Kardashians and her body transformation has been pretty amazing. So, I figured I would expand my horizons and give this book a shot. I was pleasantly surprised. I gave it 3 out of 5 stars on Goodreads and here’s why: […]

Laid Back Weekending

Happy Monday! For the most part, I had a much needed low key weekend. The past few weekends have been packed full of good times with friends and family so I was grateful for the time to recharge. My weekend started off unexpectedly early on Friday afternoon but not in the best way.  Jeff had an accident while doing yard work and cut his foot pretty badly so I ran out of work to meet him at Urgent Care. My poor guy! Nine stitches later he’s doing okay! Once he was taken care of and settled in for the night, I snuck out to meet some girlfriends for dinner and drinks at one of my favorite restaurants; Cooper’s Hawk. It was delicious as always!   […]

Weekending

How is it Monday already!? Time to get back to those “sponserberleries”…bring on the coffee! At least I had a fun weekend! Friday night, I headed to my parents to celebrate my stepdad’s birthday. It was a blast, we had a bunch of family over and stayed up way too late playing games and talking. There ended up being a giant, impromptu slumber party at my parents house. It was one of those nights that we’ll all remember forever. Saturday, I was super excited because we had plans to go play America’s Escape Game! These escape room attractions have been popping up all over and I love mysteries and solving clues (I played every Nancy Drew computer game I could get my hands on when I was […]

A Family That Drinks Together, Stays Together!

Loving all things Disney is sort of a requirement in my family. This past weekend we had a short staycation for the Epcot Food & Wine Festival. Even though I only live about 45 minutes away from the parks, I love taking a weekend here and there to stay on property and get the full Disney experience. I was really excited for this trip because a big group of my family was going and the Food & Wine Festival is one of my favorite events!
