My kids have been eating grilled cheese sandwiches like crazy for lunch lately. Pretty much every day. Not because they love them, but because sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do. But finally! Yesterday was the day to go grocery shopping. Big time Costco grocery shopping, to be exact. I thought I'd try something fun and healthy for the kids for their lunch instead of "grilled cheese, again?!!?" sandwiches. Henry loved it...Harper...well, we'll work on it. 
A yogurt, flax seed, frozen berries, and spinach smoothie.
I had to add a little milk too, or you could add juice if you have some.

It was tasty!
I just started a "challenge" at Farrell's on Monday and it's 8 weeks long. It's similar to when I did my first 10 week challenge, but it's based on points. All different ways to get points throughout the 8 weeks and the winner gets money! And maybe a new pants size!!
You get 6 points per week for nutrition. If you mess up once, you get zero points. And you can't eat out. Ever. Not even at Subway. 
But I still will have my Fun Day. Oh, thank you, Fun Day.

Anyways, here is my latest project:

I got a little stack of these hoops at a garage sale so I'm going to make a few of these thingies for a craft show I'm doing in Nov.

Thoughts? Too weird? Not weird enough? Not cute enough? Too cutesy?
I still need to paint the frame. 
I need your help because my poor husband gets a little burned out when I force him to critique my work all the time.

Well regardless, it was fun to do and I can't wait to do a few more!

Hope you all have a great Tuesday!

Spinach in yogurt? And Henry liked it? Go Henry!!

And yes, I do like your craft! I think the birdy is adorable and the saying is sweet.

Like the hoop craft! I really wish I could have stumbled upon a pile of hoops at a garage sale. I have been looking. I thought it would be super cute to put christmas fabric in there and hang them up, since they already look like sorta christmas ornamentish. Anyhoo that was a very boring way to describe something that could be way cute.
