So recently, I challenged myself to go sugar free again because it helped so much with my allergies last year when I gave up sugar for Lent. I didn’t do nearly as well this time around (as in I still ate something sweet almost every day). I did still benefit from the drastic cut back Carry on!
In my imagination, I would have a well stocked larder like this: But in my reality a day of canning went like this: After getting the baby down for his morning nap at 9 a.m., I went out to pick apples. With muchísimo help from my 7 and 3 year olds who think they can Carry on!
So you may remember I have been in the past a gardening fail… However, this year I may have turned the corner. I discovered Square Foot Gardening. My uncle gave me his book, and I fell in love. It’s a little different from simply raised beds and it’s working really well for me. Words to Carry on!
**I have been off sugar two and a half weeks and it has been amazing. AH-Maaaaaz-inG! God is totally in this because no way would I have been able to turn down molten chocolate brownies over at a friend’s house under my own power.

I’ve never really celebrated Lent in my life, or Ash Wednesday (which, at 2:30 in the afternoon, I found out this was.)

I’ve been looking into not eating sugar. Or at least less of it. I know I’m an addict. Plus I’ve been reading a lot into the science behind weight gain–it’s showing more and more that the “DIET AND EXERCISE” mantra we’ve been hearing over and over for our entire lives is really not accurate. It’s Carry on!
if his favorite meal is steak with a side of meat, and a potato, fried of course. I still made soufflés for dinner tonight. They were awesome if I say so myself. His response: “It’s not my favorite.” (Kevin code for ‘puh-leeeeez don’t make this ever ever again’) I bet he won’t like the salmon Carry on!
I had so much fun planning this party. I thought the girls could be fairy princesses and the boys could be Peter Pan. I learned a lot more about geometry making these hats than I ever did in school. Most of the party goers. My man and little Pan. We set up the yard into Carry on!
