Friday Fun!

Living healthy natural lives is not always the easiest thing, which is why I started my blog - to inspire and help others live their best life healthfully and naturally. Friday Fun is my way of sharing a bit of my life with you, my readers and friends, and I hope you will be willing to share your thoughts and ideas with me too.

So, here we go!

In my life this week...
My one year old is teething...again. Oh boy, do I ever wish her stinkin' one year old molars would just come through already! My two year old daughter fell out of the stroller while trying to get in and got a concussion. That was very nerve-wrecking and scary, but she is now doing fine, and I am praising God for that!

On a more positive note, my personal training group that was in competition with a few other groups for the last 6 weeks won! Two of my clients won 1st and 3rd as individuals too! So proud of them! Best of all, they lost a great amount of weight and tons of inches!

I am inspired by...
quiet. I treasure quiet. I enjoy the silence of the day during nap time and at night more than any other time of the day. As much as I love my kids and my life, I need the peace of quiet times, and I am so thankful for it.

My favorite thing this week was...
probably having a few moments of quiet time with my husband to reconnect and snuggle a bit. Sometimes we forget the beauty and comfort that comes in holding hands and hugs and other physical contact.

What's working/not working for me...
Working - Sneaking in a few more walks with my kids, despite the much cooler weather. I am love that outside time with my kids, and I am dreading having to stay inside so much more when the snow starts coming down. Also, I have been having a great time this week cooking new and delicious recipes with produce that is in season right now - apples, squash, pears, pumpkins, carrots and so much more!

Not working - My car is still not working. I cannot turn on the heat or warm it up without an awful blast of exhaust filling the car. Ughh!

Questions/thoughts I have...
I love my crock pot!!!

I'm reading...
Until We Reach Home by Lynn Austen, Encouragement for Today Devotional by Proverbs 31 Team,  Creative Correction by Lisa Whelchel, lots of children's books!

I'm cooking...
delicious paleo, cinnamon apple bake that I posted on our Facebook page, Sweet and Spicy Crock Pot Carrot/Sweet Potato Soup, grilled chicken and spicy raw honey, homemade applesauce, and homemade chili

I'm grateful for...
my daughter recovering well from her concussion, God giving me exactly what I need, beautiful fall walks, fresh squash from my garden, blankets and all things snuggly
