My husband and I try our best to do date night every week like Markell said and sometimes to make it extra special, we cook together. No… definitely NOT while the kids are awake, that would just be chaos ūüôā We feed the kids a simple meal {mac and cheese anyone!?} and have a light snack and then put them to bed and start OUR dinner. Which means food that we want to eat, but our kids don’t always want to. You know what I mean? It’s amazing how close you grow by working together. You are able to talk, flirt, work with...

Are you guys joining in the running challenge with us? It’s a simple running challenge to get you all off your booties and on to the streets, racking up those miles. If you started when I did, you should be at just around 34 miles, not including today’s run.  I have to admit I’ve had a rough time these last few weeks!

For Christmas, my husband bought me a juicer. I had been dropping serious hints that I wanted one. I had been losing weight slowly and I wanted to amp it up. I also wanted to eat healthier. I really don’t like raw veggies that much, and I can only drink so many green smoothies, so I figured a juicer would be a good direction to go in.
