I’m in a meal rut. Like, I never know what to cook, I don’t even want to cook, really. But I want to eat. Which poses a real problem. Is it because it’s summer? I have no idea. I do know that I went to the grocery store last week without planning a single meal (always a bad idea) and came back with a bunch of fruit. And avocados. I don’t know if you know this, but it’s not super easy to make meals with fruit and avocados. Finding something in the house for dinner every night was challenging. By the end of the week Corey took things into his own hands and made an entire dinner ;). Which brings me to my next point…Corey wants to try Whole30 to revamp our diet. Have you heard of this? I’m a little intimidated. Mostly because it’s pretty meat-heavy and I’m not a big meat eater. The goal is to eliminate all grains, dairy, legumes, and sugar for 30 days. I think it’s a little drastic, but people who have tried it say it makes them feel better. There doesn’t seem to be much research to back up the claims that dairy and grains are all that terrible for you (something the Whole30 creators maintain), so I’m not sure I’m ready to give up my daily yogurt or whole grain toast. Or oatmeal for that matter. Has anyone tried this and had a positive experience? Let me know, I’d love to hear!
Earlier this month Corey and I went to a bed and breakfast in the Outer Banks to celebrate our anniversary. I’m going to do a post on the trip, but it was so much fun. I’ve never stayed in a b&b before, and now I feel like it’s the only way to go! This one in particular was so nice. The owners were so hospitable and accomodating to whatever we needed. It was such a relaxing and refreshing time away. We seriously have already started talking about when we can go back.
In other news, the progress on our adoption seems to have stopped completely. Without going in to much detail, things don’t look good right now and it seems like everything could fall apart. We’re worried, but trying to be hopeful. And praying a lot. Will you pray with us? Right now we just just need all our paperwork to be submitted to the court (not something we do), if you could pray that this happens within the next couple of weeks, we would so appreciate it. I’ll update as soon as we have more conclusive information.
Until next time….
