Friday Favorites – Spring Edition

Hi friends!

We’ve had a long week with The Love Nugget recovering from some strange virus.  He seemed to be feeling fine by Wednesday but came out of his sickness with a horrible attitude.  Terrible twos?  Horrible threes?  Nope… Horrific Fours.  He’s been a monster!  Talking back, slamming things around, being mean to the dogs and acting out of control.  So needless to say it’s been a long week and we are ready for the weekend for sure!

We’ve been enjoying some great weather lately so to kick off the weekend I’m sharing a few Springtime favorites!

Favorite Salads – I clicked on this post thinking I would find one salad recipe that sounded good but they all sound amazing!

Droid Turbo Sapphire Blue by Motorola

Droid Turbo Sapphire Blue by Motorola


Last month when we were at the Garth Brooks concert there was a woman a few rows in front of me video taping on here phone.  Not abnormal since most everyone was doing the same at one point or another.  What caught my eye was that the clarity of the image on her phone was pristine.  Like I said, I was two rows back and it was like watching Garth singing on a high definition T.V.

I’m near sighted so I was quite amazed at the clarity of her screen.  So I interrupted my husbands “solo” (he thought he was Garth Brooks that night) and pointed out her phone.  “Honey look, her phone is amazing what is it?”

Him – “You can see that with your old eyes?”

Me – “Yes, it’s so clear!”

Him – “It looks like it’s a Droid.”

So began my research into a new phone.  I’m due for an upgrade this month so it was perfect timing.  Since I don’t buy anything without researching it I began checking out facts and reviews of the new Motorola DROID Turbo Sapphire.

My son is a major snacker.  I’m not sure where he gets it from ;-)

Okay I’m lying, I like to snack too.  Which is why we’re always stocked with healthy snacks when we need a little something between meals.  Some of The Love Nugget’s favorites are cheese sticks, fruit leathers, raisins, kale chips and of course, nuts!

What is MTHFR?

What is MTHFR?

Hi guys!

Hope you all had a great Monday!  We had another sick day at home.  The poor Love Nugget has some funky virus that is keeping us pretty tied to home.  I took him to the doc first thing yesterday expecting them to tell me he had strep but the swab test was negative.  Good but that meant no antibiotics to combat the sickness.  Which is good in a way since I don’t love giving him antibiotics but bad because his fever continues to spike pretty high and I have to end up giving him Tylenol which I hate to do.  Poor buddy :-(

Anyway, I took advantage of a day at home and him sleeping more than usual by getting some things done around the house.  Closet cleaned out and guest bed painted.  Finally!  Now I just need to paint a bookshelf, find a night stand and a desk chair.  Well then I’ll probably have to paint them but I’m getting there!

Today I thought I’d touch on something I’ve been meaning to post about for a while now.  I left you all hanging several months ago now when I told you I had discovered I have the MTHFR gene mutation then never explained more about it.  To be honest, for the past few months I’ve been learning all about it myself.  While I had a little bit of knowledge as to what MTHFR was, I needed to learn much more before trying to explain it to anyone else.

I’m going to Blend Retreat with About Time!

I’m going to Blend Retreat with About Time!

Hi friends!

Oh man did we have a rough weekend.  One of those where we were stuck home, under the weather when we’d much rather be outdoors enjoying the beautiful sunshine.  The one time we did venture out to Target for throat meds, The Love Nugget threw up in.  In the cart… In my hands…  Fun stuff.

So obviously I’m not sharing anything real marvelous about our weekend today.  Instead I’m sharing some other marvelous news :-)

I’m beyond excited to be able to attend the Blend Retreat in Boulder Colorado!

Fit Eats Opens in Downtown Sacramento!

Fit Eats Opens in Downtown Sacramento!

Hi friends!

Ugh, it’s been so windy lately my rare allergies have made their appearance.  I don’t typically get allergies but man, yesterday was rough with 25mph winds.  I’m sure it didn’t help that we spent a good chunk of time outside at the park but it was fun!  We had a play date with friends and before that had a little date at Whole Foods.

We had some green juice, tea and played Go Fish.  It was fun!  I feel like I spend so much time running errands that I forget to just slow down sometimes and do fun little things with my Love Nugget.  I mean sure we go to the park and play at home but I’m trying to focus more on creating special memories doing little things outside of our normal day to day routines.   A date playing games and hanging out was a fun one!

Like I said, the wind was not too much fun and I was feeling a little off by the time we got home around 1:30.  Not to mention I was freezing!  So I took a hot shower then parked it on the couch with my laptop while The Love Nugget rested upstairs.  While browsing online I spent some time on the Fit Eats website checking out their delicious meals they offer!

Our Day Hour by Hour

Our Day Hour by Hour

Hi there!

I thought I’d switch things up just a bit today and show you a day at a glance hour by hour.   I tried to remember to snap a picture at each hour but yeah… that didn’t exactly happen.  Close though!

5:00am – Alarm goes off and I get up to drink a glass of warm lemon water and eat a hard-boiled egg before heading out the door.
