We can finally start moving our things back into their rightful place! It has only been a total of 5 days, but it seems like eternity when you are constantly having to watch where your toddler steps in fear they will step on a staple or tac strip.
We were literally held captive in the over-stuffed school room for a couple hours today…what did we do you might ask?
Trout worked on his color matching skills, (after one effort with help…the kid had it down!)
Rouix decided the overcrowded room was as good of a place as any to take one of his stellar puppy naps; that man can lay down some zzzz’s whenever, wherever.
I took my lunch and tried to eat a salad while Trout and Bodhi climbed all over me; there was literally not a single spot of floor left in that room.
The boys had a blast watching the crew work on our floors!
I realize that carpet is not “in” these days….but to bring our floors up to match the already existing hardwood would have cost more then we were willing to spend, (at least a couple hundred running shoes!) Our house is almost entirely hard surfaced floors, so the carpet is nice for the boys and their rough housing…We’re also secretly hoping that we will have another little person crawling on them too some day…
The rest of the day consisted of putting furniture back where it belonged. I was also joined by my friend Brittney to do another great work out for our Be Fit Be You Bootcamp with the Purely Twin ladies. It is always nice to workout with a buddy…especially with someone as driven/athletic as she is, (Mat Nark…I have another runner for you!)
I also bit the bullet and went to the store to buy ingredients for the holiday meal. I am excited for my menu!
- Sprouted flat bread
- Dairy free, spinach & artichoke dip
- Roasted Brussel sprouts with carrots and capers
- Mashed Yukon gold potatoes
- Sweet potato souffle
- Brazil nut cheese stuffed roasted mushrooms
- Traditional turkey
- Gluten free stuffing, (using Simple Kneads sourdough loaf)
- Whole cranberry sauce, (yes, from the can…I am not taking on everything from scratch!)
- Impossible pumpkin pie, (no crust, no dairy, no gluten…but so so good)
- Vegan Pecan Pie
- Vanilla bean coconut milk ice-cream
Tonight I decided to make ahead the pies.
Tomorrow I start sprouting my grains, setting out my bread to get it to dry out, prep my veggies for roasting, and make ahead my soufflé.
