Lucas (my youngest) went to the MEPS building on Monday February 24th, took the ASVAB, and then joined the Navy on Tuesday. I used to have something else written here but just deleted it. I’ve been able to come to terms with this since then. I’m very proud of him for making an adult decision. However, I’ve never been away from any of my children like that. Ryan lives 15 minutes away with her family and Colton is still at home. This is going to be a major adjustment for me. I’m a baby.
Oh, and he enlisted for six years. Six!
That’s The Skinny on what’s going on in my life. Now let’s talk about The Skinny on the www.
I’ve been thinking of doing more of a theme during my monthly family meal when we don’t have a specific reason to celebrate (other than the fact that we just love each other). I like this Bingo Themed Party. It would be fun for adults and kids!
Abby gave me a gluten free pep talk just when I needed it. By talking about the reality of being gluten free for her it’s just what I needed it. I still feel like I keep looking in the pantry and not finding anything to eat but I’m working on it.
I really loved Louise’s advice about making decisions and how to handle it so that you’re not jumping into something. We all know that I’m a jumper.
Tamara celebrated her four-year blogiversary.
I’m totally loving this DIY Spring Flower Vase. And not just because I’m dying for spring to roll around. Or because it’s affordable. Or because I can actually do it. Okay, it is for all of those reasons.
You know that I love photography talk. In my mind, I’m going to take pictures that aren’t yellow and where everyone has a head. Or, I could just figure out how to make everyone else want to take yellow, headless pictures. Here is some great talk on cameras and using a tripod for fashion photos.
I believe I mentioned Amber on the last skinny but this time she may have changed my life forever. Forever I tell you. Zoodles. That is all.
I might use the zoodles to make this Dukkah & Olive Pasta. Dukkah. Fun word.
Have you ever wanted to can something? Does it seem to complicated? Jenna over at Eat, Live, Run walks us through how to preserve some awesome canned pears.
I was catching up on my reading and not feeling like working out when I read this article from Nellie on staying mentally engaged in your healthy living goals. Wonderful advice!
I’d been feeling bad, even guilty, about cutting back on blogging. Not the par where I write posts but the part where I wait all week and use the bulk of the weekend to catch up. Alison wrote on this and where our focus should really be and I’m feeling so much better about it. And apparently, I’m not the only person taking this new route.
