Hello old friends! After a few months off, I’m excited to welcome you back to Hunter and Mama Make It.
We’ve been so busy these last few months, I decided to grant myself some mama grace and take some time to live in the moment. Do you ever look at your calendar and realize that you are booked solid every weekend for the rest of eternity? (or at least the foreseeable future?) Well, that’s what happened to me mid- October! When life gets a little crazy, I think that taking some time to enjoy each moment is the best way to keep from totally losing it! BUT I’ve missed you and am excited for all the great things we have planned for this year.
Here’s what we’ve been up to:
We celebrated Hunter’s second birthday (p.s. I can’t BELIEVE we have a 2 year old!). We had a lovely little party with family. It was a Mickey and the Roadster Racers theme…one of Hunter’s favorite little shows! You might’ve seen Hunter’s birthday cake if you follow us on instagram!
We adopted a rescue dog, a sweet little girl we named Daisy. Mama needed another girl in this boy house! She’s adjusting well and keeps our older dog, Dakota, on his toes. She also LOVES playing with Hunter (they’re both toddlers, after all!).
We of course celebrated a very busy holiday season with family… by the time Hunter was done with all 4 of his Christmas present-opening celebrations, he had a hard time coping with the fact that in January we don’t actually open presents every day! Poor kid, that post-holiday slump hit him hard. He still says ‘Bye bye tree’ every time he passes by the spot where the Christmas tree was.
Cale and I also made a big decision to start the keto diet with the new year. I can’t just jump in to a diet and be successful, I need time to wrap my head around what we’re going to be doing and how we’re going to accomplish it. Plus, giving up sugar and carbs is HARD. I needed a farewell tour LOL. Anyway, we’ve been going strong for a month now.. and are both liking it and seeing results! You might notice some more low carb recipe ideas from me as a result of this change, but I still know how to mix up a mean cocktail or bake a special treat when the occasion calls 🙂
Thanks for stopping by our blog to catch up! Take a look around, rediscover some of our favorite posts… and get ready for many more in 2018!
