MANNA MARKET {VEGGIE WASH}

mannamarket.jpg

The girls and I had a fun day today. AK is on Spring Break this week and I let Abbie skip today. Having two separate breaks is really messing me up! I have already missed gymnastics thinking they were closed and went to dance and they were closed. I have not been very successful getting [...]

JUST CALL ME SNEAKY {chocolate avocado ice cream}

chocolate avocado icecream

Today for Market Monday I wanted to share with you my new favorite toy. I have been saving for this bad boy for a little while. After watching the documentary, “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” I decided I needed a juicer. But not just any juicer, the mac¬†daddy of them ALL, the Vitamix 6300. It [...]

CONTAINER GARDENING { GETTING YOUR POTS READY}

I can’t believe this black thumb is getting ready to try to tell you how to container garden. Well, I’m actually just going to tell you what I’m doing, and what I am learning. What happens from here? Well we will all just have to wait and find out. I hope it will be a [...]

100% WHOLE WHEAT PANCAKES { OUR WEEKEND TREAT}

My kids LOVE pancakes. I swear they think I love them more when I tell them we are having them for breakfast, even more so if I break out the breakfast for dinner idea. They have even come to love whole wheat pancakes because I have taken all of the white flour out of my [...]

THIS IS HOW WE EAT

Thanks for letting me rant yesterday. Today I feel so much better. Things could be so much worse. Instead of complaining I should be thankful. Thank you for all of your encouragement! I still don’t have the MRI results back. I may not get them until Monday, but that is okay! I feel like if [...]

Like the majority of all of us, the new year represents a fresh start and prompts us to re focus on new goals and priority adjustments. We just had our family meeting to come up with the Wright family “rallying cry” for the first quarter. I’m sure it comes as no surprise when I tell [...]

CHICKEN-AND-WAFFLES.jpg

The last week of August has really hit me. *sniff* *sniff* My oldest starts 7th grade and this is my little ones last year of preschool. Dear GOD, where does the time go?! The crazy begins today. Gymnastics starts this afternoon for my little one and AK starts dance tomorrow. I am not finished shopping [...]

FRESH FRUIT POPS

Every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, right around dinner time, the sound of the “Entertainer”, the jingle from the ice-cream truck begins to make its way into my children’s ears. Not only is this draining on the pocket book, but not a thing on that truck is good for my children. No, I am not a [...]

PLACE CARD HOLDERS AND A CLEAN EATING PIZZA

I have been in Thanksgiving mode, as I am sure most of you are too. I don’t have any dining room chairs and I have been working on trying to get some from my chair stash painted. I finished one of them last night and I decided to try and glaze it. Oh, I wish [...]

IN A PINCH?

This past weekend was a total whirlwind. The parties were all successful but they left me completely pooped. I am birthdayed out and mine is tomorrow!   I had full intentions of making clean eating, pumpkin spice cupcakes and a trifle for the baby shower but time got the best of me and I ended up having to [...]
