Brother's birthday!

My brother turned 15! We went to go visit him in honor of the occasion! I stopped outside my parent's house to take a bite of some crunchy looking leaves.

Fun fact: These are the same rocks as the ones I'm standing on in my pictures from last fall.

The only difference is that my soles are way tougher now!

We gave my brother organic tomatoes for his birthday. That's what I'm holding in that bag.

He didn't know we were coming, so it really surprised him when I just walked down the street and he saw me through his window.

Home Depot

Husband and I finally had a day off together! We started the morning off with a breakfast of shakes!

Then we went to Home Depot! (They should pay me for advertising for them. For reals, I blog about the products I use all the time. Somebody should take advantage of this.)

Somebody gave us a gift card for our wedding and we finally got around to using it because we needed a new curtain rod and some planters to move our garden indoors for the winter.

For some reason, everybody stared at me. You would think being barefoot in a hardware store is weird or something!

We're selling our car!

I originally wasn't going to post these pictures on here, but then I saw my wee little tootsies in one of the pics and caved.

1987 VW Scirocco, manual transmission, low kilometers for its age, runs great. Front quarter panel, headlight, and windshield damaged. $500

If you have friends in the Edmonton area looking for a great project car or parts car, let me know!

Our Latest Personal Challenge

We've signed up with Visalis, the 90 day Body by Vi Challenge for a healthier body and a happier mind. The perks for our wallet are just a bonus compared to the health benefits we are already feeling after just one week! It's like magic!

We're taking a walk to visit my mother-in-law and share the shakes with some of her friends!

All you have to do is drink two shakes a day, and you lose weight. The shakes are great - they taste like cake batter! Each shake costs less than $2 and has more nutrition than $100 of vegetables and fruits. And the best part - you lose weight with no exercise required! It's amazing!

This is the best decision I've made for my body since I went full time barefoot.

Speaking of barefoot, check out these gorgeous dirty soles.

Our 90 Day Challenge to lose weight and get healthy started last week. So far, I have lost two pounds and my husband has had to move to the next size smaller on his belt just to keep his pants up! This is an amazing program. Contact me if you want more information!

I'm learning to juggle!

My hubby and his dad went to play tennis today and I tagged along but got bored... so I tried to teach myself how to juggle!

I'm not all that great at it yet, though, so I'm dropping the balls a lot. I got creative about how to pick them back up!

I'll get the hang of it eventually!

Falling for Fall

I love fall! It's my favorite season for so many reasons, mostly because of how beautiful the leaves are! Enjoy some picks of me playing in the leaves outside my house.
