Family Time & The Great Oudoors!

In the past week we have done several outside projects around our house and had some quality family time together. 

Last Wednesday Liam and I got to spend time with our good friend Jackie. We went grocery shopping at Aldi, picked up a few items at Tractor Supply and Went to Home Depot to pick up a few Mother's Day gift Items. While at Home Depot Liam was SO exhausted this happened:

Let me tell you get some very strange looks when 2 adults are seemingly pushing around a race car cart with no child in it. Oh well he napped and that is all the mattered to me!

We also bought some Strawberry and Hula-Berry Plants. A Hula-Berry looks like a white strawberry but is supposed to taste like a pineapple. I will keep you updated on this one. 

On Sunday we had some items to return to Tractor Supply & Home Depot and also made a trip to the local Wal-Mart. While at the Home Depot I purchased 2 - 4ft pieces of rebar and 10 terra cotta pots. As the rain broke I made my family go outside so that I could build 2 of these fun garden sculptures.

I made 1 for flowers and the other one will be the home for my fresh herbs. I also got a clematis, to use as a privacy screen on our fence. And of course our backyard chickens.

We made the most delicious roasted veggies on Sunday for dinner (I snap chatted the picture but it didn't save) I roasted Brussels Sprouts, Sweet Potatoes and Carrots with a little coconut and olive oil poured over them. I added a little onion powder , garlic powder, salt and pepper.

I also discovered one of my new FAVORITE shakeology recipes! 

1/2 Cup Coconut Water
1/2 Cup Chocolate Almond Milk
2 Tbsp Almond Butter
10 Ice Cubes
1 Packet/Scoop of Chocolate Shakeology
BlEnD!
It kinda sorta tastes like an almond joy bar!

I am also going to share some of the fun photos we have captured this week.

It's rough getting up at 4:30 am to workout!
