Grocery Shopping and Pantry Cleanout

My little helper Harper and I went to Earthfare last night. I knew we needed to purchase the "staples" to kick off this Paleo thing. One and a half hours later and $280 spent, we were in business. I knew the cost would be hefty at first. The oils, butter, meal/flours and maple syrup are very expensive. Hopefully they will last a while.

Harper helped me clean out the pantry when we got home. She is a working machine! We threw away two bags and one box of food. Most of the stuff was expired or halfway opened, so unfortunately I couldn't donate. We got rid of all the beans, soups, sugars, flours, crackers, etc. It was such a good feeling!

After she went to bed, I cleaned out the fridge and threw away another two bags full of stuff. Again, most of it was expired so it needed to be thrown away anyway.

It was such a good feeling to get all the "junk" out of our house. I can completely committed now and looking forward to this way of life!

Tonight we are having turkey meatloaf. I will post pics later. Stay tuned.

Joining the Paleo Bandwagon

I have decided to join the Paleo Bandwagon starting today, February 27, 2012. I completely forgot that I started this blog back in 2008. A LOT has changed in 4 years. I will begin using this site to document our family's journey and hopefully it will grow into something amazing. My starting point was yesterday when I went to Books A Million and purchased this book. Lets get to it!

New Job

I started a new job 2 weeks ago with Choice Directory.

It's been an adjustment to say the least, but so far so good.

It's allowed me more time with the kids, which is wonderful!

If you know anyone who needs yellow page advertising...let me know :)

Our wonderful children Aiden (4) and Harper (almost 2).
They are the light of our life and every day with them is a blessing.
We are enjoying watching them grow and listening to the all the funny things they say.

My First Time Blogging

Well, I'm finally joining the club and blogging.
It seems like a wonderful way for everyone to keep up with us in this crazy fast paced world. I hope everyone enjoys it.
