Miscellany Monday-Announcement Version

It's been a BIG week at our house.  Some of the developments include...

First bites for the Littlest.  He has been eyeing our food like a crazy person.  So he got to sample a little bit of applesauce this week.  I've got plans to make a few batches of homemade pears and sweet potato this week so we can get going on the solids.  I have to admit I'm kind of dreading it.  I thought it was fun with the Little Guy but now I really covet any extra time to myself during the day.  Having to get BOTH boys through breakfast and lunch each day seems like it might be a chore.  We'll see.

Speaking of is announcement #1.

Thanks to a few good sorority friends from college I am fully committed (especially since I'm saying it here on the blog) to starting the WHOLE30 this Wednesday.  What is the Whole30?  Well it is basically the paleo diet.  You can read more about it here.  Basically it's cutting out junk.  So you can eat fruits, veggies, lean meat, eggs and good fats (like most nuts and avocado).  You can NOT eat any type of sweetener (this includes honey, stevia etc), processed foods, dairy, legumes (beans), corn, grains and white potato.  Whoa!!  I am SUPER excited about it and I'll be blogging about how it goes along the way.  I'll also be sharing my meal plan and the recipes I use that are WHOLE 30 compliant.  I know it is going to be hard but it's going to be fun right?

The Little Guy has a girlfriend.  Ok not really.  But sort of.  This week we went to the market with my friend Ali.  We do a lot of stuff together and the kids having been hanging out for the past year.  Both big kids are finally at the age where we can let them walk independently as long as we are in a safe place.  So at the market we let them walk together.  We told them to hold hands and you would have thought there was an elephant on parade the way everyone oohhed and ahhed over these two.  It was pretty adorable if I do say so myself.  They looked like a little mini couple.  Anyway, this picture is of the Little Guy watching a video Ali posted.  He watched it over and over and over until I finally took the phone away.  He loves his little girlfriend!!

Announcement #2
I finally have my giveaway blog post ready!!!  YAY!!!!  Come back on Tuesday to find out and enter!!!

I just love these guys.  We are working on sharing in this house.  So far not-so-good.  Little Guy does not like it when Littlest gets interested in his toys.  I was trying to get him to "share" the video here and you can see how that turned out.  

Announcement #3

We're got some "stuff" going on and we would appreciate your prayers.  It's something we can eventually share with you here but just not now.  Right now we'd just love for you to pray for patience and that we will really trust the Lord with our lives!

Before I go here are two yummy Fall recipes!  Tomato Soup & Roasted Carrot Dip!

Have a wonderful week!!

Linking up with my friend Carissa today!
