How is it June 1 already? How???? But you can get a free donut at Dunkin Donuts today, so go ahead and indulge. It's a holiday after all ;) #nationaldonutday
I get serious FOMO in nice weather. Last Saturday, it was a beautiful, sunny, hot day and Phil and my dad did yard work for the majority of it. I felt like I was seriously missing an opportunity to do some fun outdoorsy activity with the kids and it really bothered me all day. Do you get that feeling too? Maybe it's a New England thing because our beautiful spring days are so numbered between freezing winter and humid hot summer?
Phil and I have been researching and talking about Intermittent Fasting for a while, and decided to start trying it this week. I just got this book from the library to read, but for right now we are doing the 8/16 rule of fasting where we eat during an 8 hour window then fast 16 hours, rinse and repeat. It basically looks like skipping breakfast, which goes against every fiber of my nutrition being, but the research is pretty solid about why this method of fasting is good for us. It's just hard when you live to eat!
I need a new hobby.
I'll report back next week after I give up ;)
Every summer I am torn between buying the kids cheap sandals from Old Navy to wear to the beach/pool or water shoes that cost more but they can run around in easier. I just found these Stride Rite shoes that are like sneakers and water shoes combined, great for a full summer of play! And they're cute and comfy!
Did you guys know that Walmart has some cute clothes?!?! Their Time and Tru brand has been serving me well lately...
Even Maggie and her cousin showed up to the spring music concert wearing the same Walmart dress:
|Who wore it better? JKJKJK|
JP went whitewater rafting with his youth group - what a fun experience! I say that as I live vicariously through him, because I'm not sure I'm gutsy enough to do it!
We made our first of many ice cream shop trips of the season! We use it as payment for hard labor at home, or as celebration after receiving the sacrament of reconciliation :)
These beautiful flowers are from the garden of Brendan's babysitter. I think it's so nice when people share their garden bounties with those of us that can't keep a plant alive :) Brendan is actually home sick with Phil today, we think he might have strep since it's been going around the house. But we are thankful for antibiotics and good insurance!
Have a great first weekend in JUNE everybody!!! Stay healthy and visit Kelly for more!
