Phew guys Christmas and NY were a BLAST. I almost still feel like it was yesterday (breaks a sweat), and so does my house. I'm already mapping out how to do next year better. I feel like all Advent I was in a good flow and then Christmas Eve, Christmas, and on and on it was like BAM BAM BAM. I'm still finding scraps of wrapping paper under couch cushions. Maybe this year I shop and wrap in August. Maybe this year we all eat frozen pizza. JK we all know that's never happening but I've gotta figure out how to get a leedle more organized next round. Anyway, I gave myself two weeks to get on top of things after the kids were back in school and that basically ended yesterday. Now the laundry is doneish and we are back in a good flow. Minus the burning need to organize/toss 80% of the kids belongings. And Hero is ten. TEN!
The other night K and I went out to dinner with these losers and I forgot my wallet and the waitress wouldn't serve me any booze (side eyeing you all day, waitress-just-doing-your-job). So, Kirby (in all his extremeness) asked to see the manager about it. Long story short, the manager came and K gave him a nice speech about me having mothered 7 children and how deserving and of age a drink I really was. And do you know what the manager said?? "I CAN TELL YOU'RE DEFINITELY OVER 30"
That basically sums up how I feel about Hero being ten. I am clearly over 30. Every knows it.
Speaking of 30, Kirby and I are busting out a modified Whole 30 (Whole 26) from last week until his birthday. We've never done anything like this and I'm kinda loving it. The first few days I was starving but now I am feeling super full on not a lot and I'm craving healthy things and I'm starting to see quicker results to exercise than I've seen in months. I'm still going strong with hot yoga and it's almost as if my body was holding onto a layer of chub that is melting away because I'm not gulping down sugar and bread all day, revealing the hot yoga bod (hot emphasis on the yoga, not on the bod) I've been working my measly one day a week towards since the fall. Wow. I hope you enjoy that visual. I am definitely, still obviously over 30 but I'll take it!
Today we went to the kids family day at school for Catholic Schools Week. This is the only photographic evidence I've got.
Happy Monday, babes! I'll (try) and be back soon.
Oh, OH recipes?? I know you've got them. We are doing dairy, so there's that. Just no sugar, no potatoes, no legumes, no booze (I know... I KNOW). Give me all your delicious tips!
