Ocho Nueve

Hey pals! How was your Monday? Mine was just about as good as smooth as you could hope for. My kids were CHATTY, but otherwise, not too bad. I started with a walk with Punky, and some push-ups and sit-ups. An easy way to ease into this week. Then breakfast. Fruit cereal with a little … Continue reading


The only noteworthy activities of my day have been eating veggies and raw carrot cake. (Not together…although I guess if you count the carrots in the cake, the two technically were eaten together) Jicama, carrots, cucumber…dipped in garlic hummus And then taking a walk with my blue-eyed boy and the pup.

I woke up every hour and finally decided at 4am that it was worthless to be lying in bed. (Surprisingly, I wasn’t tired today, and I’m excited … Continue reading

Church on Saturday Night

Going to church on Saturday night allows for insanely relaxing Sunday mornings like I’m currently having. Last week I found these baguette chips for $0.99 at the grocery store.
