I feel like I’ve been a little quiet on the blog front, but holy moly there has been a lot going on this week. STUFT Daddy’s had the week off of work and while we always think we’re going to do this whole “staycation” thing, we find ourselves busier than ever.
Things that have been going on this week that haven’t made the bloggy cut:
Countless loads of laundry and unexpected clean ups due to Judah’s digestion issues, along with frustration trying to figure out what is wrong with him. (As of today we’re going gluten free for him. Hopefully it will help.)
Week two of dairy free living for me. It may be time to start experimenting and adding in a little dairy here and there again.
Many failed attempts to start my taxes. They are currently still untouched.
A new coffee brewer. (Don’t even ask.)
A new truck for STUFT Daddy as of tonight. (It’s about time since my accident was over 2 months ago.)
Pretty much a daily serving of the STUFT Protein cookie. My new favorite way to eat it is out of a bowl with the chocolate hardened on the top.
That was two days ago, this was today.
Not the best picture, but oh well.
Running out of nail polish remover and realizing my poor feet need some serious TLC after last week’s race.
Ugh. Sorry. No one wants to see that.
STUFT Daddy’s birthday celebration on Wednesday (in addition to all our activities during the day). We went all out and ordered Papa John’s to go with my chicken breast tenders and Italian green salad.
I really have a thing for overcooking anything and everything in the oven. They came out more like chicken jerky. We ate them anyway.
Then we really celebrated.
Since I’ve been dropping the ball lately on the Flat Kitty Friday posts, we made sure to take him on an adventure this week also.
Flat Kitty’s adventure didn’t last long (that’s him in Joaquin’s mouth), but we still went on without him.
Speaking of an adventure, our precious friend Amelia has been on quite the adventure over in Italy. Amelia and her family have spent the past 6 weeks in Italy. She successfully got her auditory brainstem implant surgery and as of yesterday is home safe and sound with her new device. Amelia’s Hope for Hearing is an amazing story. Through everyone’s help and support, this deserving little girl has been given the gift of hearing.
I feel like I never really expressed how grateful we were for everyone’s help and support with our Half Marathon for Amelia. In addition to all the individual donations, SunButter and Flatout were so gracious with their contributions.
I’ve been meaning to write a special post to Flatout not only for their help, but because I truly am in love with their products (pretty much all of them). I eat at least one Flatout wrap a day (usually two).
After our race back in November they sent us some multigrain wraps and new Flatout Foldits to share with Amelia and her family.
Recently they sent over their new EdgeOn baked Flatout crisps to sample.
Oh man, these things are good. I haven’t eaten them in the past few weeks since they have dairy products in them, but these are some pretty awesome little snack crisps.
They are perfect for a healthy travel snack. Our favorite is the multigrain.
The boys love them.
And, well, I already showed you my skills on how I can wrap up a mean Flatout wrap here, so I’ll just leave you with my favorite ways I’ve been eating my daily dose of Flatouts this week.
parmesan crisps (lately I’ve been subbing in nutritional yeast for parmesan)
this Sweet Treat Breakfast Sandwich (in a wrap or Foldit)
Or as one of my two favorite lunch wraps:
BBQ/buffalo sauce roasted tempeh with broccoli slaw
Trader Joe’s eggplant hummus, spinach and broccoli slaw
The possibilities are endless. He he.
Okay, I’m off. Hope you have one heck of a Flatout Friday.
Disclaimer- I have no affiliation with Flatout (although I wouldn’t mind one). I just love the company and all of their products and am forever grateful for their support for our race for Amelia. The new products were sent to me free of charge to sample (sharing them was optional- he he).
