I want to start this post off with a bit of an update. Last week I posted about water. I was looking for solutions on how to drink more of it. Remember? Sure you do!
So I was at Walmart over the weekend and I found this cup for $5. I had a bit of leftover birthday money, so I bought it. And… I LOVE IT! I easily refill it 3 or 4 times a day. That’s a lot of water, people! I love that I only have to do it 3 or 4 times, it is much more convenient for me than having to refill after every 10 oz, like before. I love that it is pretty much spill proof (a must, with kids). And I love the straw. Love it. I highly recommend this cup for anyone that drinks water. And you
This week has been a long week. Busy Boy has been sick with a cold for the past couple of days. I’ve been feeling a bit down as well. Some friends are remodeling their kitchen, so we have been trying to help them out when we can, and have had their kids at our house quite a bit (because who wants kids in a house where construction is going on?). My knees and ankles are back to hurting again, so no running. And it’s been freezing outside, so I wouldn’t want to be out there running anyway. Everything just keeps adding up. I was supposed to go to the grocery store on Tuesday, but life was busy on Tuesday and it didn’t happen.

I met The Husband when I worked in a coffeehouse. It was there that my love affair began. No, not with The Husband. That happened later, since he was dating a coworker. I’m talking about coffee.

I have downgraded from coffeehouse coffee, though. Who has $4.50 to spend on coffee every day? Certainly not me (and really, I never did. One of the perks of works in the coffeehouse was all free coffee I wanted).
My drink of choice back then was a double short caramel vanilla latte. Let me break that down for those of you who don’t know the lingo.
Okay. Remember when I told you that I was going to be honest? Well, here it is. I suck. A week ago I talked about how I Eat Clean. Except for yesterday morning. Apparently everything that I know about health was thrown out the window when I ate the bowl of Fruit Loops. I don’t even like Fruit Loops. I never buy junk like that.
But last weekend we took a 5 hour drive to visit my parents (5 hours in the car with three small children… ever tried it? No? lucky you!). So it was time to come home from my parents house and the drive started right at snack time. In a very quick last ditch effort we stopped at the grocery store and grabbed the first thing we saw. It was already getting late and we just wanted to be home, we didn’t
