Sweet Fellowship

Boy, did I  have a crazy-go-nuts weekend.

This weekend was the Florida Youth Rally. Our theme was a "Go Ye Into All the World" and the Speaker (Mike Atwood) challenged the young people to get involved and be a missionary in their own environment. The biggest thing I took away from his message was the need to be committed where you are. I guess you could describe me as somewhat of a dreamer. I'm always planning and dreaming of the future -while living in the second (I like to think of it as multi-tasking). It was nice to be reminded of the importance of being committed in the ministries of your local gathering.

Due to the Youth Rally, I had some family members in my home. (Dad - Sister - Friend from my Church in Tampa). It was great to have both my guest rooms full of people.

Sunday afternoon we had another full house - complete with all my house guests finding a comfy place to take a nap. It's such an encouragement to have people in your home and comfortable enough to kick their shoes off and chill.

Our Visit to The Little Farm

If you live in the South Florida area and have young children, I recommend filling a car with some friends and family and heading down to Goulds for some fun at "The Little Farm".*
As a mom of young children I'm always searching the web for fun (free or inexpensive) adventures for our family. It was on one of these searches that I found The Little Farm. 
I was skeptical at first because it was 5.00 just to park the car, but... when you've been cooped up in your house with three kids for a few weeks you start to look for opportunities to get out. 
At The Little Farm you will find lots of animals to look at, a cute photo opportunity ($12.00), pumpkins, petting zoo ($4.00), butterfly garden (free), horse and pony rides ($3.00), a play area and food for purchase. According to the website, proceeds from the food and pumpkin purchases during the pumpkin patch event are given to charity.
Our family had a lovely afternoon playing on the farm. We decided not to go inside the…

MOM HACKS: Postpartum Hair Loss & Regrowth!

Remember when you were pregnant, and everything seemed to glow? 
If you, like me, find yourself sweeping up enormous amounts of hair from you floor, or constantly cleaning your shower drains and vacuum cleaners, fear not. 
You are NOT alone. 
Our hair goes through different cycles. There will be times when your hair is in a state of rest, and then will shed. According to what I've read, when you are not expecting, you loose about 100 hairs a day. However, once you become pregnant, your body slows down the cycles. Thus, keeping those 100 hairs nicely on your head.

Once your beautiful baby is born, and your hormones start to go back to normal... the cycle returns and your hair begins to fall. With all three of my pregnancies, this happened between 3-5 months postpartum. It's quite unfortunate that just about the time I was feeling like a human, and getting the hang of motherhood my hair started falling out.

Now that I've gone through this process three times, I thought I'…

21 Day Fix: Final Thoughts and Results

On Sunday, January 22nd, I completed the 21 Day Fix!

::Applause::
It was ridiculously hard for me to stay focused, and at the beginning of week 3, I had no interest in pushing play for another workout. However, I did push play each day and complete the program. 
Thoughts on Container Eating:  I liked having the containers to measure out an appropriate serving size, and really felt that I learned a lot about what my body needs.  Since I shop primarily at a bulk grocery store, I found that I got bored with the options I had in my fridge. I think next time I would shop at a regular store and buy smaller quantities. 
Will I continue container eating?  Yes. 
I'd like to continue container portioning my meals for the next few months so that I can really understand visually what my plate should look like. 
Thoughts on the workouts. Boring. 
The workouts were fine until week three, by week three I just was so bored. I also got stronger than my weights so I had to switch the the bands and rea…
