I hope all of you are having a great week so far!
I have been so busy lately that I honestly don’t know whether I’m coming or going!
My sweet mamma’s birthday was yesterday. We are all celebrating on Thursday. My brother’s and daddy’s birthdays are in just a few days so we typically just gather everyone together all at once to celebrate. Makes for a pricey week, right?!? Ha! I don’t mind. They are more than worth it!
I have promised myself to drink more water throughout the day and my awesome hubby bought me something to help with that last night…
It’s called a Bobble. They have filters built into them. Every two months you just replace the filter. Considering how many people drink out of plastic bottles of water, each costing up to $1.50, every month, it’s so much smarter, cheaper, and environmentally friendly to use this. This is my first day trying it out and I love it so far. The water tastes fresh and it allows me to make sure I’m drinking water throughout the day. I’m very particular about how my water tastes. In the past, I only enjoyed Aquafina bottled water. Bobble turns my ordinary tap water into the same exact thing!
Caleb has been quite the handful this past week. He has entered into a very defiant stage. We’ve been very consistent on making sure he understands that it is definitely not tolerated in our home. Ryan and I have been sure we are on the same page. He can’t get away with any of his bad behaviors with either of us. I will tell you right now: It has been more than tough right now! Caleb is such a strong willed child and he’s giving us a run for our money! Ha! I am praying constantly that this is a very short lived phase we’re in right now. The funniest thing is that he only does this to Ryan and me! I am praising God for that!
I’ve been checking into that whole Freezer Meal Exchange Club over at Remodelaholic and I really think she’s got some great ideas there. Pinterest has tons of ideas for freezer meal planning, so it’s a great place to start if you want to jump into it. If you’ve got a couple of lady friends, this could be a great time to check out different recipes and help each other out.
