Petty things are just that, petty.

What used to upset me doesn't anymore. Petty things are just that, petty. I've realized with losing my Dad that I will never take for granted time with someone I love, a hug, a phone call, my perception is so much different now. I have grown so much from this but I wish there had been an easier way.

Ending With A Thankful Note

Today is the last day of November. I want to end it with a thankful note. I am thankful for Love. God is Love. Love is the only thing that keeps me going. I see it in so many people and it doesn't go unnoticed. I love my Savior, I was in line to be condemned and He walked up said I love you and I am taking your place. I love my Family, those with me today and those who have gone to be with God. I love my friends, I think of you as family. When I say I love, remember I don't say it lightly and I do it unconditionally. Today I count my blessings, as I do every day.

New words

My 20 month old blurted out her first sentence the other day and it was both a surprise and adorable.  I was  putting her to bed after a long day of playing and fun and she wasn't ready even though she was rubbing her little eyes.  I put her down she and looked at me and said 'I gonna cry' and then preceded to fake snore.  It was both the funniest thing and baby book worthy.  I just adore my children.  Everyday is such a delight with them.

For years I have suffered from horrible migraines and cluster headaches.  My doctor was at a loss and then we started to notice I couldn't lose weight either.  My thyroid was tested but there was nothing wrong with it. I was then tested for a gluten allergy.  Sure enough it came back that I had one.  I took gluten out of my diet and wallah no more migraines. I also began to juice.  I watched the movie Fat Sick & Nearly Dead and it gave a whole new perspective on what my body was going through.  I began juicing what I would call Green Monster Juice.  At first I decided certain death would be easier than getting this concoction down but as the days went on I began to feel better and ....and it began to taste good! Say what?! I have been drinking it for 3 months now and I find the worst part is now the amount of time it takes to get my liquid gold.

Recipe for The Green Monster Juice:

2 cucumbers
4 carrots
2 bags of spinich
1 inch ginger
1 lemon (pealed)
3 apples

Be sure to wash all of your produce.  I use a large bowl and soak them in white vinegar and baking soda and then dry well afterward.

Also I have this juicer but there are so many out there, find what is best for you.

Happy Juicing!

Homemade Cookies....

Today my girls and I went to my sister's house to relax and make homemade cookies.
We started out with washing our hands
We got all of our ingredients together
My sweet oldest daughter began putting the wet ingredients into the bowl 
Little one wanted to help too

My cute little nephew jumped into the creative process 
Little one helping mix the cookie dough 
Chocolate chip cookie dough! 
Ready for the oven 
And yes we enjoyed them and licked our fingers,

Oh my, I am currently on a mission to organize my house and my life.  After months of trying to find a home for our glass coffee table, it was finally picked up last night, free to whom ever wanted it. I was housing it in my girls closet and it was more than a problem.  They couldn't get to any of their toys and it was driving me crazy.  Now with it gone I have to say it feels amazing. I have a lot more to do but its a great start.  I am a huge fan of Pinterest. I now feel like I can start taking my ideas that I have pinned and bring them to life in our home.  My littlest child was in awe off how big her closet really is.  She spent a good amount of time running in and out with the pug in tow. I cant wait to show you pictures of our daily purge and organization.  Off to do more!
