It’s the Final Countdown! – Whole30 Week 4 Meal Plan

It’s the Final Countdown! – Whole30 Week 4 Meal Plan

It’s the Final Countdown!   2018 Whole30 Week 4 Meal Plan Oh yeah… it’s the last week (plus 2 days) so we are in…. The Final Countdown!  (Yet another classic tune turned earworm.  You are once again welcome!)  My household is feeling pretty good right now.  We are a little tired of eggs in general and breakfast-for-dinner, specifically.  Also, my husband has been under the weather this week, so we switched up last week’s meal plan a bit.  That meant…

Woah… (Almost) Halfway There!   2018 Whole30 – Week 3 Meal Plan Two weeks down!  You know what that means…. Almost halfway there!!!  (Now Bon Jovi lyrics will be in my head all night, which I had to share… You are welcome.)  It also means I feel like I’ve been cooking nonstop for two weeks.  And I kinda have.  This week I’m trying two new breakfasts – some chia pudding and a coconut breakfast bake.  The mini muffins are a…

Planning for a Stress-Free Black Friday

Planning for a Stress-Free Black Friday

Planning for a Stress-Free Black Friday So I am not a big shopper.  At least not in the way my teenage self was… man, could I work a mall.  I mean, I was happy dragging my friends (or my mom) around the whole thing and then going out to dinner at Olive Garden.  Oh times have changed!  First, it takes a heck of a deal to get me to a mall these days, and I usually end up muttering choice…

In case anyone else can relate, I thought I would share what is definitely NOT an atypical morning in my house…   Get woken up (by my toddler… before my alarm goes off). Tell toddler to go back to bed, it is not time to get up yet. [3 minutes and 7 second pass] Toddler asks if it is time to get up NOW. Convince said toddler that he should go play with his books that read to him. Toddler…

Filling My Cup

Filling My Cup

A draining week… Boy, has it been a long week!  Traveling all last weekend, working more than full time all week, and simply not being able to keep up with all the demands around the house.  I mean, there are SO many toys lying around and clean clothes to fold.  I had plenty that I could do today.  I could probably have gotten the house cleaned, the laundry folded and the toys organized.  And I would’ve felt a sense of…

Week 4 Whole30 Meal Plan – Just One More Week!

Week 4 Whole30 Meal Plan I consider this the last week of the Whole30 (even though it is 9 days long!).  The whole idea of having to go into Week 5 was just too much for me, so the Week 4 Whole30 Meal Plan is just a long one.  🙂  There are most definitely some repeats this week of my favs, but also a couple of new ones, including two meals out – on purpose!  It is almost impossible to cook…
