I have really bad migraines. I can not take anti inflammatory medication so the doctor put me on beta blockers which I would forget to take from time to time. NOT GOOD!
So I read that turmeric tea was good for migraines which I tried. Not the best tasting thing. I went to the drug store and ran across turmeric pills and also picked up some cinnamon pills. That was 5 days ago and guess what NO MIGRAINES! I have notice that if I forget to take them in the morning that I get a little discomfort and then I go and take the pills and all is good.
I will continue to take them and update in another few days. I do hope this works!
We were so excited to get our box this month from Alex over at http://www.alextriesitout.com. Thank you so much we loved it.
I told Alex that we love sweets but we try and keep it healthy. I also told her that we just love food and to have fun with the box and she did a great job.
She sent us a Mocha Cappuccino Breakfast Cookie, Maple and Chocolate Almond Butter (which we love) and Kind bars which the kids love. Which covered the sweetness.
Then for the salty we got Popchips and Gerbs pumpkin seeds. I have never seen them before so we are excited to try them. I will be putting in our snacks tomorrow.
And since it was February she sent some organic surf sweet hearts but the kids got to those before I could took a picture.
Thanks so much Alex!
So we had our pretty glasses I made and a lot to drink but we didn’t drink it all. We opened one bottle and the rest is still here. One was excited and one was ready for bed. Lol! My babies. Their 2013 goals are to make all A and Bs on his report card and the other wants to not be fat. Omg!
So for New Years Eve we had an activity for every hour. I don’t remember every hour but here are a few. We had ice cream sundaes, played bingo, fireworks, watched a movie and made journals. This year everyone was up at midnight. Kit Kat had to take a nap but she got back up this year.
So Christmas morning every year since I can remember I am always the first one up and have to wake up everyone. This year was no different! Lol! So everyone was happen with what they got and then we hang out and watched movies. First one was Step Up 4 “what a Christmas movie!” My mom alway sends them $100 for Christmas so this year Kit Kat asked where is my paycheck from Meme. Lol I thought that was so funny where is her paycheck. I told her I had it.
So the holidays came and I got busy so there were no post. So here are a few of things that happened.
Here are some of the places RED was found at. He brought them a note from Santa who was not happy how they were acting up the day before, he brought chocolate chips and he was just hanging around. But what made them so excited is that we went to the beach for a few days and who did they find in the hotel was RED!
So here is a picture of us from this past Friday at the nutcracker. This is 21/2 hours into our night and the kids were ready for it to start.
But the point to the picture is that last year at this time I weighed 192lbs and didn’t take a picture. And now I am at 169lbs so I took a picture. I wish I did take a picture last year so you could see the different. And even I can see the difference in myself.
I look forward to next years picture if I can make it through Christmas.
The kids had breakfast and did crafts with Santa at Belk Dec 1 and they had dun and enjoyed it. Here is a picture that was emailed to me. No one told Santa what they wanted for Christmas.
This months box was awesome. We loved everything in the box. Thank you so much Amanda.
So we received our box the Monday before Thanksgiving which is the day me and the kids started I road trip to VA. I ate the Nutorious Cranberry Orange which was so good. Kit Kat was upset because she didn’t get to try this one. It is my new love. We also ate the Caramel Christmas Smidgets which were also good. They were very rich. The Cherry Vanilla Va-Boom was eaten on the way back home and it too was a big hit. We have never had the Nutorious before and we will be stocking up. We had the pumpkin coffee Thanksgiving day.
The dark chocolate peppermint pals and the hot chocolate we are saving until tomorrow night. It is day 1 of the 25 nights of Christmas. Thanks again to Amanda we truly loved our box. Have a very Merry Christmas.
