New favorites...

Well, 2 posts in 1 day, I'm very proud of myself.
Just wanted to talk about a few things that have been going on...

1. I have a new favorite place (well, I've only been there once, so I guess I can't REALLY say its my favorite yet). Market Street has everything I've been waiting for in a supermarket- getting wholesome foods and picking up everyday items (toilet paper, shampoo, etc.) all in the same place!!! Their produce and meat selection was outstanding and everything was so clean and well lit. The service was unbelievable and the nice old gentleman who took my groceries out to my car told me that all of Market Street's produce comes from Lubbock and is never in the warehouse for more than 24 hours (Walmart keeps theirs for weeks!). They had a pretty good organic selection (everything I buy organic, they had in stock) and their prices were not bad at all (DEFINITELY beat Whole Foods on most things). I do NOT like going to multiple stores to get all my groceries, so this store is a perfect fit for me. Anyway, I'm sure there are things I missed, so don't go there expecting to find something in particular and get mad at me when its not there. :) I'm not super picky on items I buy- as long as it has limited ingredients (less than 5), whole grains and is free of yuckiness (high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, etc.), I usually don't get hung up on a certain brand. Don't get me wrong, my family DOES still occasionally indulge in "fun" stuff, but I find we're really enjoying how our bodies are feeling after eating right. Which leads me to something else...

2. I can attribute some of our health consciousness to being in our 3rd month of taking Juice Plus. After about a month of taking it, I could definitely tell a difference in the way my body felt towards food. We've been racing through water and I'm actually CRAVING fruits and veggies (yeah, I know, crazy!). In the past, when I've been up late doing laundry or watching a movie, something sugary has ALWAYS sounded good. But tonight at 11pm, I went into the kitchen and made a FABULOUS salad- organic greens, tuna, carrots, organic tomatoes and cucumbers, the BEST avocado I've ever had (from Market Street, of course), some natural shredded cheese and a little bit of all-natural Poppyseed dressing. It was AMAZING and I feel great!
Again, I'm not necessarily a "health nut" (the girls and I definitely made some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies earlier tonight that were NOT all-natural), but for the most part, I'm listening to my body and learning what gives me energy and makes me feel good. Its definitely not as hard as I thought it would be, and I love that I'm getting my girls started early so they can experience these good habits for a lifetime. Now, if I can just get some more exercise into my daily routine, my body will start looking how I feel. :)

3. This Friday, Feb. 13th, I will officially become a "soccer mom". I still don't have the minivan (even though I want one), but Makayla will have her first soccer practice next week. It was kinda unavoidable because she's loved kicking around a ball for a good 2 years now, and is actually pretty good. I think she's more excited about the uniform, but I know she's going to have a blast! I can't believe we're already to this stage in life- its a little scary, but SO fun. I can't WAIT to post pictures. :)

4. Its February and time for Divine Consign!!! If you've known me for at least the last 6 months, you know about DC, so I won't go into detail. Just go to the website and check out the greatness for yourself. I'm working both sales this year (Grapevine and Plano- Arlington is no more) and cannot WAIT to outfit the girls for summer.

5. I really want to do something fun for our wedding anniversary this year (June 5th), but REALLY don't feeling like planning a whole big vacation (its so exhausting!). Anyone have any good ideas for something to do locally- or some non-local destination that's all-inclusive (a cruise or resort)??

Ok, that about does it- I better get to bed. Scroll down to my last post for some pictures of my precious girls who I'm absolutely in love with!!!

Great info! I can't wait to check out that store.

On an anniversary note... James and I took our first cruise last year for our 10 yr. It was a 4 day or so one to Cozumel I think from Galveston. It was a lot of fun and all inclusive! It is one of the most afforable cruises we had found. We did add on an excursion to a private beach with an open bar ;-) It is the same beach they shot the corona commercials a while back. Great photo opp. Hope you guys have a great time whatever you plan!

Hey, after reading your blog I thought you might have some interesting recipes...I am having to watch very carefully what I eat b/c of Koy! Most things have to be made from scratch using organic or whole foods! Anyway, if you do having anything you wouldn't mind sharing let me know!!! I'd love to share some of my recipes with you too! I have some great cookies! mandmcox@cebridge.net

I LOVE Market Street!!! Of course I am familiar with it because of Lubbock...it was my happy place there. :) Me, mom and Morgan woke up at 6am to go to the Grand Opening. They have GREAT breakfast burritos!
