Sunday Coffee

**Did you enjoy losing an extra hour of sleep this morning?? We did not. Even though it SEEMS like Grayson slept until 630 technically it was 530. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ The only bright side to this “Spring Forward,” is that he might actually be going to bed at 7pm now thinking its’ 6pm. Does that make sense?? ๐Ÿ™‚

**We are transitioning Grayson to Whole Milk!!! Our doctor was completely fine with keeping him on formula but I’d like to transition him because formula is SO expensive!!! We spend about $25 a week on formula, so $100 a MONTH!!! We do buy organic milkย (Shout out to Full Circle Organic!! We love this brand!! Great product AND affordable!)ย which a gallon is about $4 and I’m not sure how quickly he will go through that but I’m sure it will be less expensive then formula!!

**So how is he adjusting to whole milk?? GREAT!! It doesn’t even seem to phase him! I have been doing some half and half with formula but he has had it straight. What a trooper! ๐Ÿ™‚

**Have you heard of the 40 Bags in 40 days Challenge?? My sister just told me about it, I’ve looked into doing it as she wants to but I’m just not sure I have the TIME!!! Working full-time, a baby, etc. It just seems a little big to take on for each day. I could def. do work on it on the weekends and some evenings, but I don’t think I could commit to!!! Have you ever done this challenge??

**We are thinking of getting rid of a car and going down to just ONE!!! Are we crazy?! We are trying very hard to pay down debt and having one less car payment that could go towards debt would be HUGE!! It would def. be a sacrifice for a couple of years but in the long run it should be worth it.

**I had to go buy Catching Fire on Friday. We have already watched it once this weekend and I plan to watch it again before I let a co-worker borrow it. It’s my favorite book of the trilogy and my favorite movie so far! I love, love, LOVE Jennifer Lawrence. I just think she seems so down to earth and gets it ya know? Hope she remains on this positive, good role model course.

**Today where I live it’s supposed to be 54 degrees, and tomorrow it’s going to be around 60!!! We have been buried here in the midwest by snow and COLD! I’m so excited for this brief glimpse of Spring. We plan to go on a walk and grill, oh how I’ve missed grilling. Steak is on the menu for tonight! ๐Ÿ™‚

**We are looking into buying our meat from this organic, local farmer: Thankful Harvest. It’s pretty cool because their prices are great AND they deliver to our house!!! So convenient. I’m placing my first order this week and can’t wait to try it out. Plus, I’ve met the family a few times and they are the nicest! If you live in in Des Moines check them out!

Enjoy your day today wherever you are! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. tyler and i have been a “one car family” ever since we moved to california back in 2008/2009. dani and jesse have also been a one car family since i think 2010. obvi, none of us have children so not sure how it works with the wee ones, but in case that offers you any hope!

  2. Ah come on do the 40 in 40 with me! The trick sounds like really picking out small area for one day; like just the junk drawer, one bookshelf, upper kitchen cabinets and lower kitchen cabinets separate. ๐Ÿ™‚ Then save larger projects like the garage or your closets for the weekend.
