It’s that time again! I’m back for another installment of Five on Friday with Darci & friends 🙂
I need to get serious about something. As much as I don’t want to, I need to kick my soda addiction! I know it’s possible considering I did it throughout my entire pregnancy with Arden…but oh my, I love a good Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper on a hot day…or any day for that matter 😉 So I’m going to enjoy a couple more over the weekend and then try to go cold turkey on Monday. Wish me luck…because I’m gonna need it!
I made my first Instagram video this week and I’ve only watched it…oh, you know…about 300 times.
I seriously love this child…
Now that Arden is sharing a lot of our food, I’m paying more attention to ingredients and kind of rethinking what “healthy” means. So in an effort to eat a little cleaner, lately I’ve been using the Fooducate app while grocery shopping. All you have to do is scan the barcode of the item or search for it by name–and up pops a grade, the nutrition facts, and a list of healthier alternatives. Imagine how surprised I was when a bag of (what I thought were really healthy) veggie chips from Whole Foods got a D- for being highly processed and containing GMOs. Oh so you’re telling me not everything at Whole Foods is actually good for you?!? 😉
Anyway, this app is definitely helping me to make some better decisions at the grocery store…
Whoever said 10 months was the best age…they weren’t kidding:)
Case and point:
This time next week I will be soaking up some small-town, 4th of July goodness. We’re heading to my mom’s hometown in Iowa for fireworks, tractor pulls, 3-legged races, greased pig contests (yes, you read that right), and a cutest baby contest. Which, PS: I hope the locals won’t be too made when a Texas baby takes home the crown 😉
I am so excited for this trip I can hardly stand it. We went almost every year growing up and now I haven’t been since my almost-7-year-old-niece looked like she did in the picture below. TOO long, folks!
That being said, I’ll probably have to skip out on next Friday’s link-up…but will be back the following week to dish about our Iowa adventure!
Have a great weekend, friends!!!!
