Not enough hours, Happy Mom, and Tequila Tacos

How is it already Friday?  Does anyone else feel like the days are just too short?  I think if I could have about 4-5 extra hours a day, I’d be in much better shape.  Not only would I get all my work done, but I just might be able to sit down for an hour at night.  These days sitting is not happening! Well…I’m sitting now writing this, but I mean sitting and maybe watching TV…or reading a book.  A friend told me I should start watching “Stranger Things” on Netflix.  And when this friend tells me I should do something, I listen!  But I can’t for the life of me find time to sit and watch it!  Has anyone watched this?  Do you like it?  Give me the scoop!  Good news is, this week was a super productive week.  I’m pretty sure it’s because I couldn’t workout this week…LOL! I was forced to stay home more.  But I got sooooo much organization done for work.  And I feel much better about the place I’m in.  I still have a big list.  But I think by the end of this weekend, I’ll be in much better shape.

Unfortunately, I still have a long list to “home to-do’s” that were not touched this week.  I did manage to take a few hours the other day to shop for stuff for a room I’m re-doing.  I’ve had a friend helping me do it who is an interior decorator and she is AWESOME!  She got my style right away and I have absolutely loved working with her on the this project.  The room I’m re-doing is the kids playroom.  It has now become their media/hangout room and it is seriously the nicest room in the house now!…LOL!  If they don’t use it, I will be!  Once it’s complete, I’ll post some pics here.  She found the coolest oar to hang on my wall from an antique shop.  It’s very distressed and the head is actually broken.  When I looked at it, the way it’s broken actually makes it look like a whale!  How cool is that?  Noticing this looked like a whale was seriously the highlight of my week.  Now to get my husband to hang it up!

The bottom line is…everything gets done eventually.  You just have to embrace the struggle a bit.  I’ll get there 🙂

So….I miss the gym…a lot.  Every day this week I looked at the WOD (workout of the day) and was so bummed I wasn’t there to do it.  Hoping today I get the go-ahead to workout again and start up on Monday.  You don’t realize how much you need something in your life until you can’t do it.  Although sometimes its good to give your body a rest, I miss the good feeling I get when I’m there.  The atmosphere, the people, the good feeling I get when I’ve accomplished something great, and I even miss the deathly feeling I get after a horrible workout…LOL! I miss it all.  The gym is my daily therapy.

So, I had an awesome Mom moment yesterday I wanted to share.  Both of my kids tried out for Select Chorus at the Middle School.  My daughter, Emma, made it last year and loved it.  I love listening to her sing.  Like her dancing and drama plays, it just makes me smile.  I’ve always loved the arts and love to see my kids happy performing on stage.  Well, this year my son Kyle, who is in 6th grade and just entered Middle School, decided to take a chance and tryout too.  Emma has always been a singer, but not Kyle.  This made me nervous and I had no idea what to expect.  I didn’t even know if he could really sing.  And believe me…Kyle has been disappointed so many times in his life with “try-outs”.  Also, Emma didn’t make Select in 6th grade, but did in 7th.  She’s now in 8th.  Making it in 6th grade is hard!  Well, he did his tryout.  He sang “Mama Said” by Lukas Graham, which I thought was so cute because I kind of feel like that song is HIM.  It’s the way we talk to him.  He’s always paid such close attention to the words of songs.  Always interpreting them and comparing them to real life.  Always wanting to understand them.  I love that about him.  he’s a pretty deep kid.  Anyways…today he came home from school only to tell me HE MADE IT!!!  He was so beyond excited and I wanted to cry I was so excited for him.  When my kids are happy, I’m happy.  And I can’t wait to see both Emma and Kyle up on stage together singing this year.  I’m so proud of both of them.

Ok…onto food.  Not too much chit chat this week.  You know what’s funny?  When a clean eating blogger all of a sudden posts about tequila and all of a sudden you have all these new friends and likes….LOL!  It made me laugh.  It’s like when I post a paleo dessert vs a meal.  The desserts get WAY more comments and likes than the meal.  Come on people!  Ok, I get it.  Tequila and desserts are way more fun.  So, I was pretty psyched to come up these Tequila Tacos.  Because really…what goes better with Tacos than Tequila??  Margarita anyone?  I think it’s time to come up with our own Margarita Recipe. I’ll leave that one to my husband.  He’s much better at that than I am.

For the tortillas, I am LOVING Siete Foods tortillas.  Both the almond flour and cassava coconut ones are so good!  You can order them online, but some Whole Foods are now carrying them, so call yours to see if they have it.  I’ve spent the last few years making my own tortillas from scratch.  They were yummy…trust me.  But this are sooooo much easier.  I love anything healthy that can save me time, too.  So, thank you Siete for making such an awesome product!  I love that there are more and more convenient foods that are actually clean and healthy out there.  It’s just a matter of finding them all.  Always check out my FB and IG pages.  I post a lot products I try there.

So….try these Tacos.  You’ll LOVE them!
