    Holiday Madness, You Can Only Control So Much, Proud Mama, Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, OOTW, & Practically Paleo English Toffee

    Happy Friday!!!  It’s Christmas Eve Eve…YAY!  And wow…when people talk about holiday madness, they mean it.  This week has been insane!  I feel like I haven’t been able to breathe and it’s been a week of ups and downs.  Some great things, some not so great things.  We’ll start with the not so great and work our way to the good, ok?  So, this week I had an incident happen.  I’ve discussed things like this before.  Those incidents that consume all of our time and draw negativity to us and make us grumpy?  I hate it when this happens.  And I kick myself every time for allowing it. You mind…

    I Miss My Hunny, Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, OOTW, & Honey Lemon Chicken w/Asparagus

    Happy Fridayyyyyyy!!!!  It’s been such a long week.  And now it’s SOOOOOOO COLD!  Brrrrrr….  It’s been a long week mostly because my hubby has been in London since Sunday 🙁  But…he’s coming home today and I can’t wait!  I miss him.  And it’s tough having him gone all week.  Even though he’s been traveling for like…ever…I still hate when he’s gone.  I don’t sleep well.  I fall asleep ok, but I can’t stay asleep.  I wake up almost every hour.  Unbroken sleep is the worst!  I mentioned last week that this month my goal was to get 7 hours of sleep each night.  Well, that kind of went downhill this…

    I’m Sleeping, No Need to be so Angry, Christmas Tree Winnings, OOTW, & Stovetop Breakfast Crumble

    Happy FriYAY!  Does anyone else feel like they are constantly playing “Beat the Clock”?  I feel like this everyday.  Life is so busy!  It’s all good stuff…don’t get me wrong.  But, an additional four hours a day would be awesome!  One thing I wanted to work on this month was finding 15-20 minutes a day of “Me” time.  Time with no work, time with no phone, no people.  Just quiet time with myself.  But, I can’t seem to find it!  Just when I think it might happen, something else comes up.  UGH!  I really need to figure this out, because I do think it would be very good for me. …

    Cutting the Tree, Taking Risks, OOTW, & Sticky Orange Maple Brussels

    Happy FriYAY!!!!  It’s been such a busy week, so I’m super extra excited about it being Friday.  I’m not sure why, though.  I still have so much to do today.  And a busy day tomorrow.  Maybe some rest on Sunday?  Probably not.  I need to food prep Sunday.  Since last weekend was Thanksgiving weekend I did NO prep at all and it absolutely killed me this week!  Ugh…I hate when I don’t prep.  I was lost every night on dinner.  Luckily, I still stayed on track.  I had to.  My belly’s been off and I’m not sure why.  I thought originally it was from my Thanksgiving indulges.  I do think…
