project life 2014 : weeks 23-24

June 25, 2014

This spread is from June 2 – 15 and it’s one of my recent favorites. It encompassed two pretty regular weeks, along with Father’s Day. I had more photos than this, but I edited them down in order to keep things more simple and to have a little extra room to breathe. I’m glad I did. I had an extra space to do some journaling and I used it to write a broad overview of our lives. I noticed that for my filler cards and journaling cards I’m almost exclusively using black and white now. I guess I’m in a phase where I just like the photos to provide the color. All of us with my dad on Father’s Day….

summer goals

June 24, 2014

I’m feeling really laid-back about this summer and don’t have anything huge planned. Maybe that’s how summer is supposed to be. These goals are things that might happen anyway, but hopefully this will motivate me to focus on them a bit more. >Complete Whole30 and reintroduction plan. I’m already on my way, but it’s a big deal and I want to stick with it so it’s going on the list. >Finish Liam’s stocking. When fall comes around there are other holiday projects I’ll want to work on, so I’d love to finish this before then. >Go to the beach. We only live 1-2 hours away, but it’s been years since I’ve been! >Read a long book. I’ve been so out…

whole30 week one

June 23, 2014

Instead of doing a huge recap at the end of this adventure, I thought I would update you weekly on how it’s going. That way I can let you know exactly what I ate each day and how I felt, in case anyone comes across this that is just starting out, or if any of you decide to take it on later! I know this is kind of annoying if you’re not interested so feel free to skip this post. :) Day 0 I want to give you a little more info on the prep I did beforehand. I did a big grocery trip, mostly shopped organic at Kroger for this but I swung by Whole Foods for a few…

spring goals report

June 20, 2014

Although it has felt like summer for a month already, spring is technically just ending today. I liked doing seasonal goals and feel that they are appropriate for me this year. Here’s how I did with mine this spring: >Finish sewing my quilt top: Completed! Also sewed the back and obtained batting. >Add 5 new easy weeknight meals: Well, I added three. Baked BBQ taquitos, slow cooker taco chili, and taco chicken bowls. The taco chili and the taco chicken could easily be adapted for paleo (since that’s the lifestyle I’m aiming at), but the BBQ taquitos will have to be a splurge every once in awhile. >Complete Couch to 5k: Done, and ran a 5k race too. >Finish the 12-week Bible study:…

where do you live?

June 19, 2014

photo credit Where do you live, and do you like it? Sometimes during the long, hot summers of Houston I get to daydreaming about a milder climate. I even decided to take a quiz to tell me what my ideal U.S. city would be. It gave me the top 24, but the first five were: 1. Tulsa, OK 2. Greenville, SC 3. Clarksville, TN 4. St. George, UT 5. Hampton, VA I didn’t know much about any of these cities, so I took some time to read about them and I decided Greenville, SC is my favorite! If I could just up and relocate though, I’d have to visit and really feel the “vibe” before deciding. As it is, for the most…
