Dinner, Home Decor, Strawberries, Sleeping Standing Children and Juicing

I'm going to do today's update based on the pictures I downloaded from my camera, so this will be very random.

DH is an amazing cook.  I have no idea how he comes up with it.  Here's our dinner pics from last Thursday night.

And here's how he put it all together on a salad.  The chicken is here somewhere.  And yes that is grilled pineapple, and a mix of grilled chick peas, onions, garlic and red peppers.

Our daughter loves to take pictures and she took some around the house the other day and I thought they were really good.  Here are a few of them.  This one is in our sun room.

So is this.  This is on the bookshelf in the sun room.  The middle jade piece Tom brought back from his trip to China a few years ago with the same EMBA program I'm about to do.  The others we bought in the States.

This is in our hallway downstairs

As we all know, naps with the boys has become hard to get to happen, so sometimes they just fall asleep where they are in the afternoon.  Tommy is still standing in this picture.

Liam was asleep too -

Yesterday, I peeked in the garden and found two strawberries ready for the picking.  They were delicious!

I've also taken to making myself a veggie juice drink for the past two days.  I haven't juiced in a long time and it's been awesome to start again.  Last night I juiced up two carrots, a cucumber, three pieces of kale, a lemon and a green apple.  Tonight I might throw in some parsley and a beet.

And here is my resultant to-go container for work the next day.  I put it in the fridge with my salad and two small slices of grilled flat-iron steak for lunch.

Yummm! That dinner looks so good. We are going to have to try the grilled pineapple; I have heard a lot about it. Did he do the chick peas on the grill too? I love chick peas and need to use them more often.

That picture of Tommy sleeping standing up is hilarious!! Be sure and show that to him in a few years. : )
I love the standing up pic!!!!! And all the ones of food :)

That does look YUMMY! It makes such a difference when you both can cook... LOL

thank you for your lovely offer - of course we can go out to eat! Please - i hope you didn't feel obliged because of me whining about the spend??? I'm processing........ and I get more comfortable with spending the money daily!
SOOO cute to see their standing up naps. Those food pictures make me hungry!!

I LOVE grilled pineapple! So yummy!

I don't envy the sleep follies but it is hilarious! I was SOOO excited to see our first strawberry starting to ripen, and then the next morning is was gone. I hope the bunnies enjoyed it.

So are you getting excited about getting back into the school grind?
My son has never been an enthusiastic napper, but lately it really blows me away how much he fights taking one -- despite walking around like a zombie all afternoon with his eyes rolling back in his head. I can totally see how your sons would then fall asleep like this. I think I may do the same myself pretty soon.

So fun to get to enjoy these photos. That food just about makes me cry, though -- I hate cooking, but I love eating food like that. :)

Phoebe's Fifth Grade School Picture

Here's Phoebe's 5th Grade School Picture.  I really like her in red or bright colors.  She's definitely becoming quite the little lady.

Hitting the Reset Button

The holidays are over and the decorations are put away.  Life is back to work and school and this is our first three day weekend after the holidays.  It's a Saturday morning, I'm missing my husband, and I'm ready to tackle our life that is not quite living up to our expectations these days.  I've decided to pull up my big girl panties today and get started on making our life the dream life we've always wanted.  I'm pulling out my bullet journal and using this weekend to take charge of our life.  By the time Tom is home for good I want things to be the way we've always wanted them.

What do I need to work on:

Our house is not setup the way I'd like it to be.  I can't wait to get hardwood floors and want projects not to be half finished.  You know when you're putting your house on the market and you finish all those projects to make it look good to sell?  I want our house like that now while we have time to enjoy it!Phoebe is leaving for college thi…

Missing The Man

Not the proverbial "Man" that wants to keep us down, but my man.  I've been pretty quiet about it on social media, but Tom had to move to Boulder, Colorado for work and I stayed behind with the three kids.  He had to move because his company decided they wanted to move certain central roles in the organization to corporate headquarters there.  He's been super lucky for about 14 years he's been working from home for the same company.  I guess paybacks are a bitch.  We decided not to move the whole family as our daughter is a senior in high school at an amazing school that is giving her two years of college level (AP) Calculus, she's already had AP Chemistry last year and has two AP Physics classes this year. She is applying to schools for engineering and has a bright future ahead of her with law school when she's done with her undergraduate work.  One might ask why not find another job locally... did I mention we have a daughter going off to college and t…
