Eating Toast In Church.

What we’re up to, categorized…

What We’re Eating

Um guys, are we like vegetarians now?!  Not really, but we are eating so many yummy plant-based proteins and tons of veggies these days, and feeling better for it.  (Is there such a thing as a weekday vegetarian?  Oops scratch that, I just ate some chicken tonight…)

Juicing for days…Pants is still doing traditional juicing PLUS smoothies, and I’ve been drinking green smoothies.

My green smoothies are NOT fruit smoothies though, by the way.  They are a mix of greens and other vegetables and water with just a handful of frozen fruit in them for more antioxidants.  Sounds gross?  It is!  No just kidding, they actually taste pretty refreshing, just not sweet.  Fun fact:  I actually HATE fruit smoothies!  Who HATES smoothies?!  Why am I so weird, guys.  I do like eating fruit, though. I’m not really a fan of healthy ‘products’, but I did buy one of these Rebbl drinks as a treat for Pants.  We’ve just tried the turmeric kind though, since it’s only sweetened with honey and maybe a little stevia.  I’m unsure about some of the other kinds, I’ll have to check the ingredients.

I also found this organic brand of non-dry beans that is really yummy, clean, and not in a can: 

What We’re Doing

What am I doing?  Gettin’ my…we’ll say *crap*…together!  Especially in terms of how I look and feel.  Ooh, soon I’m going to do a big post about how I’m totally drinking the Kool-Aid with Dressing Your Truth, Lol – it’s basically figuring out your natural energy type (there are four of them) and dressing (living?) according to your type.  It sounds a little kooky, I know, but it actually makes perfect sense once you understand the concept.  I got the book out from the library and since I’m a YouTube junkie, watched a bunch of her videos too, and I find it SO interesting.  And honestly?  Finding out your (perceived) weaknesses are actually STRENGTHS? Gamechanger.  I’m a Type 4, btw.
(She also has a book called ‘The Child Whisperer’,  which I haven’t read yet, but it’s supposed to be really good for helping understand how to parent different types of kids.)


Speaking of looks (kind of), Sky’s now as tall as me.  Also still totally addicted to computers, the king of the quickest wit around, and just got back from winter camp with youth group.

He took this picture at camp, he’s amazing: 

We’re still recovering from Shark’s birthday sleepover last weekend, and he’s still obsessed with putting things in his bike spokes to make noise, drawing sweet pictures that aren’t violent at all, making us laugh with his funny voices, and watching Young Indiana Jones:

This was the picture he drew on top of his Valentine’s Day box. (!)  Umm…

What We’re Watching

Help!  I need a new show!  We recently watched Sneaky Pete, which we loved, and also Glitch, an eerie little 6-episode show from Australia.  In January we finally caught up on Silicon Valley, and we were trying to finish the third season of Halt and Catch Fire, but honestly I was really over that show after 1 1/2 seasons. But whatever.  Of course I watch Suits on repeat, it’s like my new Gilmore Girls, but with dudes ;)  Suggestions??
