Never thought buying fast food would help kids in local schools. This is for the students at Lamping Elementary to help fund their education! #ChikFilA
When you order at the shop on Eastern, you have to say your purchase is for Lamping Elementary so the money will go to the school!
Celebratory milkshake because:
1. Momma passed her glucose test! I failed the first one with Sophia, mostly because the OB decided to tell me I was OBESE right before. 🙄
2. My iron levels came back better than ever! I recently switched my prenatal to @naturemadevitamins after reading labels and doing research to find a more natural option with better iron content. It’s clearly helping!
3. My platelet counts are not only higher than ever, they are FINALLY within the acceptable range! They’ve always been low but with Sophia, they almost dropped too low for an epidural at delivery 😱. I think the vitamin may be helping here too!
4. Sophia’s labs from yesterday came back normal! So while that’s good news, it’s time to make some additional adjustments to her diet to help with iron absorption. My OB was actually a lot of help here and I’m open to any other tips, as well!
So, so, so much great news today I can hardly stand it. Friday, we officially enter the 3rd trimester with Elliot and it’s looking like we may can very quietly countdown his arrival. Well, except for the buying a house bit. 🙈💙 Praising the good Lord today and always!
Celebrating this girl's birthday a little late with a shopping trip in Branson and lunch at her favorite place. I am so thankful for this special girl who gave me the most precious gift seventeen years ago when I became a mama for the first time. I am so proud of the young woman that she has become. She is smart, hard-working, talented, thoughtful, and just awesome in general, and I don't tell her that nearly enough. Happy Birthday Baby Girl!
It’s chik fila spirit day at the kids school today so of course they HAD to get a picture with the cow 🐄😍. I am SOO blessed I can have the mornings with my kids and take them to school. The days are long but he years are short and I don’t want to miss a thing. Do you need more freedom of time? Want more family time? Need extra income so you don’t have to worry about what you can get at the grocery store? Join my team! I have 3 mentoring spots open!! It would be so selfish of me not to share this amazing opportunity!! I want to help you ❤️. Comment “freedom” for more info! What do you have to loose? Nothing! #bossbabe#momlife#chikfila
Quick tailgate picnic celebration last night. Anton had a great lacrosse game with some breakthroughs. Really proud of him for putting himself out there and being a little uncomfortable. It paid off and his confidence has increased.
It’s so easy to take a couple minutes and celebrate successes in life. The kids loved our tailgate picnic and the time talking about the success in the game and some time together catching up.
Life goes fast and if you don’t slow it down you can find yourself looking back wondering how so much has gone by. I want to find these little times that make memories for them. I want them to know how deeply they are loved for who they are. #chikfila#lacrosse#kids#lovethesetimes#celebrate#lovebeingadad
Diet food doesn’t get much better than these! I couldn’t help it...these Keto #chikfila inspired chicken tenders 🍗 were so good I made them again for dinner! This time I used coconut flour and it was perfect 👌 RECIPE included this time 👩🏼🍳 #ketogenicdiet#keto#lowcarbdiet#ketolifestyle#ketoweightloss#dietfood •R•E•C•I•P•E•
2lbs Chicken 🍗 tenderloins
1Tbs heavy cream
1c coconut flour
1tsp onion powder
1tsp garlic powder
1tsp sea salt
1tsp oregano flakes
Coconut oil (enough to have about 1 1/2 inches in a pot)
Thaw your chicken to room temp. Beat the egg and heavy cream to an egg wash. Mix all dry ingredients. Put your coconut oil on to a medium heat. Once hot, dip your chicken in the egg wash, dip in dry breading mix until covered. Lay in the oil about 3-4 tenders at a time about 4 minutes each side until golden. (Just test your fattest piece of chicken to make sure they cook through.) Wannabe Chik-fil-A Sauce RECIPE
1tsp-ish of mustard
1tsp garlic powder
1tsp onion powder
Dash of black pepper
1tsp mustard seasoning
A drizzle of honey (optional - or go without, or add a teensyweensy bit of alternative sweetener. Follow your heart.) Mix together! 😋
I kept a promise to myself today 🙌🏼✨🥇I completed a workout after a work day. After a first day where I drove by several fast food establishments (including my freaking fave, Chik Fil A) where I could’ve stopped for a “first day” celebration. 🎉
.but I didn’t. And I am SO proud of myself. 😊It took me a little bit to get going (and I’m missing my liquid life ⚡️⚡️ like crazy and I can’t wait until it arrives tomorrow 📬) but I did it. I’m sore; I’m relieved; and I feel proud of myself. 🤗This is a #bfd for me to do something for me and not to rationalize away. I stayed accountable to myself; my coach; the coaches on my team; and all of the girls in our online accountability group (and the 👀 on my insta 😘)! I want you to feel this feeling of pride too, which is better than anyyyy other high #endorphins .
.Even during a huge change, I am now calm, my anxiety is down, and I feel like I did something good today that not only helps me but helps my coaches and my team. This is why this challenge is called #thefivepercentproject - bc even though I didn’t want to, I did it, and that’s a quality of people who succeed and make goals. I can help you make and set yours as well ❤️👭💌
