year in review…

well technically it’s only half of a year in review, because i didn’t start blogging again until may. but anywho, here’s a quick recap of the last half of my/our year…

from part of may through part of june, i was able to do the paleo diet for 30 days. it was very challenging. i lost over 10 pounds (probably gained it back already), but it was a very interesting and rewarding experience. two of my favorite recipes were the chocolate chia “pudding”

puddingand lettuce wraps…kind of like the ones at p.f.chang’s.Lettuce-Wraps01in june, my mom, brother, sister and i went to visit our family in maryland

  2. Eventhough it is May-December, I enjoyed it. I am still bummed that a Miranda Lambert concert is something not under my belt. Plus, I am doing your 30 before 30. Great idea
