But for now let's get to the peaks of this week.
1. This week was my second week of hardcore clean, paleo eating. I got the low-carb flu, which was awful, but I got over it in a couple days by upping my healthy fat intake, and now that I'm over that initial hump, I've been feeling amazing. On Saturday, Brian and I disagreed on something and made a bet about who was right, and whoever won could get a small non-paleo treat. I won (always) and chose to enjoy a crisp Coke from McDonald's. I got my hands on that Coke and took a big gulp and.....it didn't even taste good to me! It was surreal. I ended up letting the kids have some then throwing it away. I guess my taste is changing from the clean eating, which is a really big deal for me, considering how I used to eat!
2. Hudson's hair is now long enough for a mun (man bun). I can't even handle it!
3. Our cat, Pepper had kittens a few weeks ago, and they're starting to get playful and bigger and more adorable! It's such a sweet little treat to have them in the house all the time, watch them play, and see the kids enjoying their cuteness so much.
Pepper is enjoying motherhood, but she has her moments...
[excuse my sister's screeching laugh]
5. We had a small birthday dinner for family at our house on Saturday night to celebrate our little Buggy. Brian is a grill master, so we did burgers (wrapped in butter lettuce for me and Brian), sweet potato fries, and watermelon salad. I decided I was due for a sweet treat, so instead of baking a normal cake and passing on having a slice, I tried making a chocolate paleo cake. I was pretty sure it wasn't going to turn out very good because of how clean paleo ingredients are, but this cake was moist, sweet, covered in chocolate ganache, and delicious!
