100th Post!

This is my 100th post on this blog (my old one had over a thousand, or 2,000, can't remember).

I don't have anything special to write about so I'll just do some random stuff.

~We went to Ocala last weekend to visit my best friend, one of Josh's high school friends and his step-dad (he was married to Josh's mom when she died and we still consider him family). Yes, small world, they all live in one town! I'll do a picture post soon.

~Annika has randomly been complaining of tummy aches. The fact that she can say "tummy hurts" is a pretty big deal. I've always had to guess what's wrong with her but now she can tell me. She has no fever, vomiting or diarrhea so I'm assuming its the new juice Josh got her. We always buy Bolthouse juice but we tried a new one that must be bugging her.

~I'm so excited that the girls both traveled so well this past weekend. Makes me excited to plan some other trips with them. They both slept so well in the hotel, Annabel in her pack n play and Annika in bed with me (we kicked Josh out and one night he slept in the other bed in our room and the 2nd night he stayed up late so he was in the living room area sleeping on the couch). Josh can't sleep with a little person breathing on him and luckily I can so Annika and I do just fine together.

~Starting April 23rd I will be doing the 30 Day No Sugar Challenge. Eekkkk, a little nervous since I usually do cheat a bit on weekends, I know that during the week it won't be an issue. I'm trying to get on a path of better eating and a path preventing myself from getting heart disease which both my parents had when they died.


  1. Congrats on your 100th post! I gave up refined sugar for lent. I'm still trying to stay away from it because I don't want to get back on it. The hardest part I found was that it seemed like there was sugar in everything. Like ketchup and salad dressings, they just put a little sugar in everything. I still crave it, but it's easier to get past the cravings, good luck!

  2. Wow, I don't even keep track of my posts! Go you, and I think it's awesome how you are working towards eating healthier. If I didn't have such a ravenous chocolate-sweet tooth, maybe I could do better, too!
