WW 63: Birthdays, Breakfasts, and Date Night

Hello everyone.  Taking a moment to celebrate grandmas.  My friend Ana’s grandmother turned 96 this year.  She came from Cuba and overcame so much during her lifetime, and now has a beautiful granddaughter and three great-grandaughters .  Happy birthday grandma Chelo!

Squeezed in a latte at my favorite breakfast place.  Yummy, frothy goodness.


I’ve been off gluten for over a year now and always on the lookout for low carb breakfast ideas.  (If you have any ideas, comment below).   This low carb protein breakfast did the trick because the ham and eggs kept me going until lunch …

Which turned out to be a yummy, salty broth of chicken and fresh veggies… couldn’t be beat.


And here are the last photos of the week with a little reflection on date night ideas.  As a couple with 5 kids, we keep saying we’re going to do regular date nights but they keep falling through the cracks.  One kid will have a cold, or another a test, or someone else a choral concert, and out goes date night through the window.  Well, this week we took a simple drive together.  We chatted, we laughed, we drove.  We were home in about an hour.  We took some time together.  It’s not a lot, but for us that makes all the difference…

cute date ideas

Thanks so much for reading and check back in this week for some fun new posts.
