Four Years

I spent last night and most of today in Houston for a work seminar. My night was spent sprawled out on a king sized bed watching TLC and Food Network. I think I was a little too excited about the "free" cable. Since we do not have cable at home, Mike and I always tear it up when we go to other people's homes. Is that sad?? We have a hugh crush on HGTV and ESPN.

It was a lot easier to eat on the road then I thought it would be. I had some snacks prepared (fruit, Larabars, sweet potatos) and restaurants are starting to include a larger gluten free menu and provide alternatives. 

Breakfast was an egg white omelet with mushrooms, onion, chicken sausage, and bell peppers. They also had almond milk available to use in my coffee!



Lunch was a stop at FreeBirds. I had the Freedom salad with no dressing. Added lettuce, chicken, tomatoes, guac and grilled veggies. It was absolutely delicious. 


These made me laugh:


My morning was spent in a Google seminar learning the stats on digital marketing and basically if you or your client isn't doing it then you're WAY behind. Good thing we do and now I have even more info to present come my next meeting!


While I was away, Mike played in our first work volleyball game. My office set up and team and Mike was able to join. I was super jealous that he was playing, but it was cute to talk to him afterwards. I have huge FOMO (fear of missing out), so I can't wait to play next week:) I love that he was able to meet my awesome co-workers and talk about how much fun they had. I kinda just shoved him in the water and he floated. 

I got home a little earlier than I expected, so I headed for the kitchen. My cookbooks have been calling my name, so I made:
  • No-cook Chocolate Pudding  (Against All Grain)
  • White Peach Muffins (Mike's breakfast- The Paleo Kitchen)
  • Fluffy Peach Pancakes (Mike's dinner for when he gets home- The Paleo Kitchen)


These meals are really simple and if any one is interested I can post the recipes in another post:) 

Today is our 4 year anniversary. I know our wedding anniversary now trumps this one, but these four years have flown. God has blessed me with my other half and earthly rock. Together we have no fear and love harder each day. 

" A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken." Ecclesiastes 4:12

Happy 4 years, Sweets.
