This weeks themes are Planning, Loving, Reading, Wishing and Feeling.
Blog posts for February! Sooo many projects. I have a couple of blog tours I’m participating in February. I have two outfits planned for the Project Run and Play Sewalong. I am hoping I can have time and energy to do something for that last two as well but right now I have something for Knit Week and Cosplay Week. I’m really excited about this season because I “know” so many of the participants. Plus love some Michelle and Audrey! I am also excited about the themes this time because they are open offer more participation opportunities for people with boys and babies =) Last but not least Kids Clothes Week is later this month. I plan to whip up some basics for that and some repeats of patterns I am using for posts earlier in the month.
Valentines day is coming up and I am doing a couple of tours for clothes for myself. I have lost a bit of weight and it’s warming up so I will need some new pieces in my wardrobe. I fell in love with some fabric. Marbled Hearts from Liberty of London. It was wayyyyy out of the price range for any fabric I’ve ever bought for myself but I knew it would be perfect for the post and also my wardrobe. What’s a girl to do? Ask her wonderful husband if he already had a gift in mind for Valentines day and if he would consider sponsoring my blog post. He went for it! The fabric arrived Friday and I have it washed up. It is just as gorgeous or even more than I expected.
The hearts look big in this photo. The fabric is hanging on a standard clothes hanger so the hearts are about 1/2 inch wide. This is going to be fab y’all!! Sooooo loving the husband for this one =)
Recipes! I have been doing Paleo since Jan1. I am doing some prepping over the weekend. This week I made my second batch of homemade mayo. It is so easy (less than a minute to whip up) I will likely never buy mayo again. I used Avocado oil this time instead of Olive Oil and it is a game changer. Sooooo good! I am also making up some Tarragon Chicken Salad using the mayo, some Dump Ranch and I’m recreating the Feta Slaw and Caramelized Onions found on the Power Protein Plate at Zoe’s Kitchen. I cooked up some uncured bacon in the oven this morning to use through the week in salads, greens, and frittatas. The fridge is also loaded with plenty of cooked chicken and fresh chopped veggies. I just have the Ranch left to make as I need a couple of items from the grocery store that I will acquire this afternoon.
Wishing for more time. I am going to attempt to change my schedule again to wake up at 5 instead of 6 (I leave for work before 7) so that I can get in some workout, me time, and spend a few minutes getting my head around the day before everyone is up and chaos to get out the door happens.
I’m feeling good! I have been eating Paleo for 3 weeks. The biggest change I’ve noticed is that since day 3 I have not had any Arthritis flare ups. This has increased my productivity a lot. I also have more energy and I feel like my brain is back to functioning on all cylinders. Adding in workouts this week so next week I will probably be feeling sore =)
