Look at that bench, I just think it's the coolest ever, if I had been the designer it wouldn't have been near so attractive. We didn't have a decent paint brush to stain it with so that'll have to happen some other time. We had some extra 1x8's from some shelves I took down, we figured that'd make a good bench without having to spend more money on lumber.
I've also decided to clean up my life in addition to my house, I started a Whole 30 three days ago, not long I know, but considering that I've thought about doing one for years and never had the guts to try, even three days is pretty awesome. My diet has been pretty good for the last couple months, but no where near perfect, and in the last few weeks it had disintegrated further and the scale was showing it. I really, really, really do not want to gain #60 again this pregnancy, I refuse to! But the good thing is that means I get to find lots of delicious new recipes, which I love to do, and then I get to share them with you. Today I made Sausage and Cabbage with Fried Apples for lunch. Okay, that sounds weird, the fried apples are separate from the sausage and cabbage, I don't think they wouldn't be quite so good mixed. They were good though, and the fried apples were a nice treat. Then I made Zucchini Spaghetti in Creamy Tomato Sauce for supper, and it was awesome!!! I highly recommend trying out the recipe sooner than later, Chris said it needed to go on my "regular" cooking menu. Not that I have a cooking menu plan, something I need to remedy. I of course forgot to take pictures, dang it! I need to strap that camera around my neck whenever I start cooking, I don't know why I can't remember it... Oh well, there are of course gorgeous pictures on the blog I linked to, oh, and I highly recommend buying her cookbook, or at least bookmarking the page Everyday Paleo, she has amazing recipes that are always easy and delicious. My sister bought her first recipe book and I kinda wish I would buy her other one, but it'll never happen, the internet is so much easier and cookbooks take up precious cupboard space.
