Next year will be different. I will not spend an arm and a leg on Christmas presents. I will not be in a mad dash and stay under constant stress, I will take care of myself so I'm not sick and over it by Christmas Eve, and most of all, I will reflect on what Christmas really means. Amen!
With ALL of that being said, I am very thankful for the fabulous presents I received! Adam gave me the fiercest pair of Ray Ban Aviators that I'm completely obsessed with. My mom, knowing my makeup obsession all to well, gave me a Sephora Gift Card. I was able to make this purchase, and oh baby, it's SO WORTH IT!

In other news, I've started a Whole 30. Yes, I'm crazy. I'm on day 3, and literally taking this
Juice is allowed on the Whole 30 and after trying this Naked Juice today, I'm sold. Such a nice change from my water and La Croix. My past 3 breakfasts have consisted of a fried or scrambled egg with veggies, and whatever leftover protein I have from the night before. Lunch has been everything from zoodles, Aidell's chicken sausage and carrot sticks with Wholly guacamole, to tuna salad made with Primal Palate mayo. My first Whole 30 dinner was Sunday night; we had chicken sausage, roasted squash, and pasta (for Adam and the kids), last night we had Roasted Chicken Thighs, sauteed broccoli slaw (amazing), and rice (again, for Adam and the kids). Tonight we're having leftovers. I have to admit, I'm not crazy about all the cooking that goes into it. I'm a big fan of convenience foods, though I know they're not healthy at all. I will say, everything I've cooked so far has been delicious. Definitely no shortage on flavor! And I do like the fact that I'm getting new ideas for meals, particularly breakfast and lunch; no pop tarts and turkey sandwiches here! At least for the time being anyway......wish me luck!! Day 3- let's do this!
