Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s that time of year again to stuff your face and eat DELICIOUS food. This year it’ll just be my Husband, Hudson and I (And it’s Hudson’s 2nd birthday!) So we wanted to do a low-key dinner and keep it paleo! I know that sounds ridiculous but our bodies are finally adjusting back to healthy eating and we wanted to keep it that way!

And although paleo – We have some MOUTHWATERING items planned. Looking for a healthier alternative for your dishes? You’re in the right place!

  1. Turkey as usual. We’re doing a dry rub and injecting with some cajun seasonings (Duh, I’m married to a cajun 😉 )
  2. Paleo Dressing! Recipe here!
  3. Paleo Cranberry Sauce
    • Mix and boil 1 Cup Water with 1 Cup Coconut Sugar
      • Once boiling and slightly thickened mix in 1 whole bag of cranberries (NON-FROZEN)
      • Once all cranberries popped mix in 2 packs of fresh blueberries and cook til softened! Then serve and enjoy!
  4. Paleo Rolls Made with Chebe Focaccia Bread Mix
  5. Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Maple Syrup & Rosemary
  6. Fresh Green Beans with Bacon
  7. Homemade Paleo Pumpkin Pie (Hubby’s Secret Recipe 😉 )
  8. A mini cake for Hudson’s birthday!!

These are all traditional Thanksgiving dishes that we tweaked to fit into our healthy lifestyle and we’re happy we’re doing it! It takes JUST as much work to make as normal dishes but we’ll feel fantastic afterwards! Oh.. And GO COWBOYS!!

Hold your loved ones a little closer this holiday. Be thankful for what you have. Thank God for the blessings you have. I know I will. Happy Thanksgiving y’all.

Organizing Holiday Decorations

Hey y’all – I’ve got a 9 day cold going on and am miserable. So, the last thing I wanted to deal with was a ton of decorations thrown back into flimsy boxes and hoisted up into a random spot in the garage. So amid my illness I decided to try something new.

I sat my butt on the couch and created an excel sheet that would assist me in labeling each box by number for each holiday (So that if I ever didn’t need a box I could reuse it for another holiday or for the kid’s Winter/Summer clothes!).

I ran to Walmart and picked up 6 (For Now) clear large bins (For only $4 each!) and a thick Sharpie! I ran home and marked each bin with a 1, 2, 3, 4 and so on. I was able to get ALL of my Halloween decorations to fit into 3 bins (With bulky stuff sitting to the side of course) Made it so much less stressful and looks way cleaner now!

Now I cannot WAIT for Christmas – It’ll be SO much easier to get everything back into their respective boxes without the worry of missed boxes AND the flimsy cardboard boxes being so heavy that they empty through the bottom of the box when trying to bring them down or put them back up!

LOVE this idea and wish I would’ve thought of it earlier! Recommend it to anyone really but especially families because it makes it way easier to find decorations instead of making it an entire afternoon ordeal just trying to find each box when your kids are dying to put stuff up!

Bye Halloween! Helloooooo Thanksgiving and Christmas!
