Morning! Hope everyone had a nice weekend. Here is a little overview of how we spent ours:
Pompano Beach Playground over by Galuppi's in Pompano Beach
Ava basically wanted to play with a little boy's basketball the entire time...
and stare at balloon boy the remainder of the time. He was very nice to her and entertained her for a while with this balloon blowing skills.
I studied for my holistic health coaching certification by the pool during the afternoon
When I was done with my week's class module, I invited my mom to a mother daughter dinner date that night.
If you have not been to Market 17 in Ft. Lauderdale, I highly recommend it! It's a farm to table restaurant and even lists all if the local farms who are their suppliers. It's as organic as it gets. The only downside was when our coffee came out, they served Splenda and Sweet&low... What?! That's super dangerous stuff, all GMO, and linked to cancer, infertility, and lots more. Gross.
I already emailed them and let them now and also recommended they replace those with raw honey, stevia, or agave...or just real sugar! Anything is better than that artificial poison.
Other than that, it was an amazing place full of delicious organic food!!!!
Thank you, Market17 for a perfect setting for our mother daughter date.
Mark brought home a play kitchen for Ava after church. She LOVES IT !
Mark prepping our lunch and Ava prepping hers too.
Can't beat great music on my favorite beach! :)
Found our goofball friend, Zach, there! For those who may be wondering what Zach asked me... No, Mark and I are not perfect ALL the time with our eating or drinking. We control what we can, and that is the food in our home. I am clearly drinking a "classy" corona tallboy in the photo below. I later had a "Naked Coconut" which was rum, coconut water, and lime. I didn't want any soda with the high fructose corn syrup, ect. so I tried picking the better of the options they had there. (Which was quite tasty I might add! I would have never thought to use my coconut water as a drink mixer! Thanks, Tortuga!)
You can only do your best sometimes with what you have at hand...:)
We found Ashleigh too! Love her :)
Thank you, mom, for playing with Ava while we were out at the beach. Ava loves her time with her Nonna.
This week should be pretty low key for us. I have made it my goal to tackle one little section of our home to declutter and organize each day. Today is the laundry room shelves. Exciting huh?! haha ( I also want to bring back drinking my daily warm lemon water with cayenne too! I have been slacking on that and I don't know why because I love how I feel when it is in my routine.)
Next week, we have Mark's dad and step mom flying in from Oregon! I am so excited. I love when they are in town.
Happy Monday, everyone!
