Journey Journal: Days 169-181

Day 169-171: Tuesday-Thursday, June 18-20, 2013

For the most part, we still stuck to our GF DF diet. We hosted Shepherding Group on Wednesday night, and I did a fruit, nut, and cheese tray (while avoiding the cheese…mostly) and bought a box of Publix’s oatmeal raisin cookies.

Day 172-174: Friday-Sunday, June 21-23, 2013

Friday was our semi-annual board meeting at the office, followed by a cookout. Bryan grilled the burgers and hot dogs for us and we brought some corn chips, buns, and drinks; someone brought condiments, onions, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, etc.;  someone else brought baked beans; and the host made potato salad, deviled eggs, and banana pudding. It was a lot of work, and I think everyone was ready for the weekend by the end of that week.

Saturday involved running by Starbucks on the way to getting my haircut–of course, I picked up my stylist’s favorite espresso drink as well! And I love my new haircut! Then we ran errands, and I hung out with my sister and her boys while Bryan helped shoot a wedding. After the wedding shoot, we went to a baseball game and stopped by some friends’ house to hang out for about an hour before crashing at home.

Sunday involved a wonderful morning service, followed by 2nd grade Journey Group–about Loving God. Then we went to Olive Garden with our young adult group (gotta love all-you-can-eat salad and soup for $6.95), followed by having them come over for the afternoon and evening. It was a really good time of fellowship.

Day 175-179: Monday-Friday, June 24-28, 2013

A long week with some late nights, but it was a very productive week. We still ate less gluten and dairy, but not totally GF DF. As we added the gluten back in slowly, I did not notice any issues; as for the dairy, definitely going to try to avoid it as much as possible going forward. On Friday, we had dinner with Bryan’s dad and he helped us with our materials list for our back room project. I  picked up Pizza Hut and stopped by the grocery store for this week’s groceries.

Day 180-181: Saturday-Sunday, June 29-30, 2013

Saturday involved cleaning, lots of laundry, mowing the lawn, and going to Lowe’s to pick out our windows and doors for the back room project! (We’re waiting till their sale starts on Wednesday to actually order though.) We hung out with our friend Carissa for a bit; I brought kale salad with crumbled bacon, dried cranberries, sliced almonds, and goat cheese with a bacon vinaigrette dressing…so yummy! We ate it with some thin cracker crisps! Delicious! Then Bryan went to play soccer while I finished the laundry and cleaning.

Sunday is morning worship followed by elder community groups–no Sunday School or evening service, just dedicated fellowship time and some good rest! Hoping to get back to the gym this coming week–I’ve been too busy for too long, and this heat is ridiculous, so I definitely want to be indoors, but I do need to get active again for sure.
