Miscellany Monday

I am so excited about these next few weeks!!  Lots of fun stuff coming up!  Linking up with my friend Carissa today!!

We have a crawler!  And a sitter upper by himselfer!  I can't believe it!!  Baby boy is busy busy and I wish he would just slow down a little bit.  He seems to be growing so fast I can't keep up.  And speaking of keeping up.  Apparently I can't keep up with what the Little Guy is learning.  On our way home from Seattle this weekend we heard him counting to 8 in Spanish.  Spanish?  Neither of us speaks Spanish.  When I asked him where he learned it he told me from Diego.  I'm still kind of flabbergasted about the whole thing!

We went up north of Seattle this weekend and came home with a new double BOB stroller!  Craigslist has been pretty good to us over the last few years and this time was no exception.  We got a great deal and it is in wonderful shape.  It was pretty dirty but looks like new after 2 rounds in the washing machine!  I can't wait to try it out!

I finished my Whole30 Challenge on Friday.  You can read more about it here.  It is one of the most challenging things I have ever done!

I had to get creative in the kitchen over the past four weeks.  I modified this recipe for Pineapple Guacamole Burgers that I found on paleomg.  They were divine!!

We bought plane tickets to go home for Christmas this weekend!  I was feeling MAJORLY homesick since we missed the birth of our new nephew and our niece's 3rd birthday.  I love living here but I really really miss my family.  We are going to pack in as much fun as possible for 2 weeks!!  I'm thrilled that Peter will get to spend the holiday with us and with all of his family.  What a blessing!

Stroller fitness may sound wimpy but I'm telling you what...it is not for the faint of heart!  These ladies are in great shape and I leave every time thinking I might die on the way home.  It is such a great workout and I enjoy getting to hangout with some sweet girlfriends that also attend the class.  The Little Guy loves going now too because he plays in the daycare.  The last two times he didn't even turn around when I left.  I guess I should be glad about that but he could at least pretend!!

I'm a Nicholas Sparks fan.  A big one.  And somehow I missed it last year when a new book came out.  Something about being a single Mama and pregnant...hmmm....I can't remember!  Anyway...I ordered it on half.com (love that site!) and it came on Saturday.  Sadly I've already finished it so now I have to wait until the next book comes out!

I hope you had an amazing weekend as well!!  If you are a new reader I am so glad to have you!  I'm excited about all the upcoming holiday fun and I have some fun crafts and projects up my sleeve since we've officially entered rainy all the time weather here in the PNW!  Also if you aren't following on Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest I'd love to have you follow there too!!

Have a fabulous Monday!!!
