Hey friends!  I just wanted to tell you all that I am going to be taking a blogging vacation until about September 7th, 2016.

I want to spend the last week of summer enjoying this time with my family and taking a week to get back into the swing of things once school starts.

See you soon!!

This Week's Menu

Well, I am working on getting back into a routine this week.  Matt is back from India, the kids have a bed time again and me, well I've been feeling pretty yucky since I started shoving everything I can find into my face again.  Whole 30 is starting again in this house as of tomorrow.

Even though I have a couple camping trips planned, I am going to try to make it work through those trips too!  The only exclusions I am allowing myself is the one or two date nights that Matt and I are planning.  It's just too hard to try to figure out Whole 30 when you eat out.

So this week, I am planning on eggs and bacon for breakfast with possibly some banana pancakes. Lunches will be salads, a bowl of mixed fruit with some left over steak or a grilled chicken breast.  I realize that my lack of planning at this very moment means the next couple days are going to be a struggle for me, but I am prepared for it!


Monday - This stir-fry meal
Tuesday - Kung pao chicken
Wednesday - Going camping with the kids so I am going to make BBQ chicken and a side of fruit salad
Thursday - this pesto zoodle meal that looks amazing!!
Friday - DATE NIGHT!
Saturday - BBQ as long as the weather holds up!
Sunday - tacos
