My Whole 30 Experience

WOW I still can't believe I was able to complete Whole 30! I honestly didn't think I could give up my sugary coffee because that was my daily little piece of joy lol. I'm going to answer the questions I've been getting in this posts and hope that it helps. I know a few of you mentioned you are planning to do Whole 30.  What did you learn?  Your taste buds will change! I never realized how much I was so used to sweet coffee so the first time I finally had my creamer in my coffee, it tasted so different! I honestly couldn't finish the cup.

Most of my wrinkles are in my forehead area and crow's feet (the ...

Scarlett is 6 Years Old!

My sweet (and super sassy) firstborn is 6 years old and it's so hard to believe! It's been a whirlwind of a year, especially for her so I wanted to still throw her a birthday party under the given circumstances. She really wanted a unicorn party with her friends but we had to opt for a drive by. It was so successful and I'm super thankful for all of our family and friends who made Scarlett feel so special on her special day! Before the party, we had a fun little diy photoshoot at home with all the balloons I put together for the balloon arch. I'm a little late with her birthday post but ...
