Pomegranate Bite Bursts: Shakeology Hack

IMG_2638.JPG

This is so yum! Those of you that like mixed food textures (I know some don’t) I recently discovered the deliciousness of adding some frozen pomegranate seeds to your Shakeology!

There’s a restaurant in downtown Greenville called “Pomegranates” and they told us that in the fall, when the fruit is I’m season they de-seed and store giant tubs of frozen pomegranate seeds to use throughout the rest if the year! This is so brilliant and I have loved utilizing this idea.

The frozen seeds added to the blended Shakeology are slightly reminiscent of bubble tea (in concept- not taste.). Try it!

Ideas For Our Bedroom: Floating Wall

Sam and I decided to take the downstairs large bedroom as the master. Unfortunately every wall has doors or windows which make for an awkward backdrop and orientation.

Our solution came from my wise and talented mom. We are going to build a partial wall to act as a new smooth back drop for the bed and side tables. Something like this:

DON’T GIVE UP. REST.

STOPGIVINGupREST

I really believe in two sides of the coin. One is: DON’T give up. If something hasn’t worked before it’s either because you gave up or you tried the wrong key for the lock. The second is directly to new moms and people entering extremely hard situations that are new- it’s ok to rest. You need to REST. Stop putting crazy pressure and self hate on yourselves. Give yourself time to just be and to savor the moments. I can tend to be extreme so when I was overwhelmed in the past with new babies or crazy life events I would spend several months feeling frustrated at my circumstances and hopeless and then after that I would just decide I was stuck. Rest, but don’t get stuck. If you are so stuck that you don’t know how to fix your whole life- stop trying to fix it: just rest and when you feel the fog start to lift then do something, anything positive to move you forward.
