I had to share this picture to show you all how determined I am to stay with this program. My sister came down for a surprise visit this weekend and wanted to go to lunch. I agreed with my family that we wouldn't eat out for 30 days either, but my sister said it was her treat so I agreed. :-) I was stressing over what I could eat that wouldn't break any rules of the Whole 30 and I ordered unsweetened tea, lettuce and tomatoes and that's it! I was worried about what they cooked meats etc in so I stayed as safe as I could! Good thing I carry my Larabars with me in my purse, lol!! As you see I had to look across the table at my sister's yummy meal.
Thought I'd post a picture of some of the snacks I grab throughout the day. Usually a variety of fruit choices and some nuts. Also hard boiled eggs, pepper slices, carrots etc. Being prepared helps to keep the hunger at bay.
This past weekend we found a Goodwill outlet store where you pay by the pound. The girls and Jerry found some clothing they liked. This photo is what Hayley picked out. All together it was $24.00 for Hayley's, Jerry's, and Kathleen's.
This is what Kathleen found and the book I found her on the retail store side.
Jerry found some t-shirts, pants and shorts. :-)
We also found this kitchen chair for $1.00. The girls use our old kitchen table as a craft table downstairs and a chair was broken so we got this one for them to use! Also will clean it up and possibly paint it first :-)
Hayley worked a lot of hours on painting this skull for an entry in an art contest. Jerry made the shadow box for her and it rotates from the top so you can see the whole skull. It's amazing and I'm so proud of her!!
The pictures don't do it justice at all!
See the antler on the top? That's what you turn to move the skull around in a circle.
She also painted this picture to submit to the art contest as well. She has incredible talent and enjoys art so much!

This one of the three of them is one of my favorites. They are all growing up so fast!! Wish I could slow down time some days.
Kathleen has been hard at work making new creations with her Rainbow Loom. For some reason she likes to spread out all over the guest room bed, lol.
Elvis has been her faithful sidekick through it all! :-)
Pikachu was her latest creation! She plans on giving it to this boy she likes at school for Valentine's Day. ;-) He likes her too!
On the retail side I found these purses for $3.75 a piece! The black one to the right is a Vera Wang!!
This morning we had a beautiful sunrise, very welcomed after a few rainy days! Lots to get done today so will catch up again soon! Thanks for stopping by, hope you are having a great week!
