So, fellow blogging friends, I am so incredibly bored with cooking the same old things for my family. I was wondering if any of you are intersted in trading some recipes? I am on a healthy journey trying to find yummy healthy recipes that kids and a picky husband will eat. Anyway, if any of you want to join in with me, I'd love to share and compare. I wish you were all close enough that we could even get together and try new recipes in person so this is the next best thing.

Have a good week!

Pay It Forward Love Notes!!

I've never seen this before but it looks like it could be fun and this is a fun time to be leaving sweet notes to friends and family so here goes!!

"Here's how it works-the first 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive, at some point during the year, a handmade gift from me. What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise! The catch is that you must participate as well-before you leave your comment here, write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going. (Or you can cut and paste from this one like I did) Then come back, let me know you're going to play, and sit back and wait to receive your fun gift!! Remember that only the first 3 comments will receive a gift from me, so hurry, hurry, hurry!

Please remember to either put your address on here or email it to me. (Thanks)

Crazy Week...Monday was just here.

So, this has been a crazy week! We have been so blessed, when I came back to work after my surgery and recovery, I had like two people a week one week and then maybe like 10 people the next week, it was so crazy, I was so slow. But this week and last week have been amazing with business. I am loving what Ido too! It was kind of good to have a month off so that I could have a chacne to come back with fresh excitement and healthy energy to do what I do.

Mike is struggling with his neck still/again. He is back in physical therapy and we are hoping that it will be as successful and last time. Either way, I am just glad that i am doing so much better so that I can take care of him this time. If he ends up having to have surgery, at least I will be able to be there for him.

Maddy is doing wonderfully in school right now. She is really working hard to overcome her obstacles with learning and has basically surrendered to the fact that we will sit down with her every night if that is what it takes so that she has the help she needs. So, she is now bringing her stuff home from school more regularly and we are working hard together. She is going to start a theater class next week and she is really excited for that. She is also in math club now and made it into a class call "uniquely Me" I think, which is an after school program for girls where they just get together and learn more about being a girl and doing what girls do. It is a lottery system to get in and she made it so she is really excited about that. She still loves volleyball and has an interest in softball as well so we told her next year she could decide what she wants to do and play in team sports. I secretly hope she does volleyball but we'll see what she decides.

I can't believe she is turning 11 next month. She is growing up so fast and she really is an inciteful little girl. We love her so much!!

Several of our family members are struggling right now and I wish so much that I could do more to help alleviate their pain, but we pray for you all everyday and hope you know we are here if/when you need us.
