ten things Tuesday

I love lists, so I thought I'd make this post a list-y kind of one :)

10.  I've been on this {semi} health kick the past couple of weeks. I guess I picked a really bad {or really good, depending on how you look at it} day to stop eating junk food...mainly donuts.  We always seem to have junk food to snack on in my office & guess who's always "snacking"...yep, yours truly.  So, yesterday I said that I'm done snacking.  Now, that's not to say I won't enjoy a small treat every now & then, but certainly not everyday.  I need to start eating healthier, especially for breakfast!  I need to start my day off with healthy eats & hope it continues throughout my day!

9.  In keeping with my "healthy-kick", I decided to fore-go my Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks.  But, since I'm someone that *needs* caffeine to start my day off, I still make my daily trip to Starbucks.  However, I've traded in my 260+ calorie drink in for a simple cup of Joe...saving myself well over 250 calories!  Good for the waist and the wallet :)

8.  And, since we're speaking of healthy things, I might as well add one more :)  Hubby & I decided to go GLUTEN FREE next week. We've both heard good things and thought we'd give it a try.  I've been getting a lot migraine type headaches lately & thought that maybe cleaning up my diet a bit might help and I'm willing to try anything at this point.  What are some of your favorite GF products, recipes, tips or tricks?  

7.  We're supposed to get another snow storm this week...I'm over this winter crap and am ready to break out the flip flops, dresses and swimsuit (okay maybe not the swimsuit just yet, but the other two for sure)!

6.  I ♥ Hannah...probably as much as she loves to sleep on the bed!

5.  Hubby has a volunteer event for work today and the place they are volunteering at happens to be near my work.  So I get to meet him for a happy hour tonight!  I never, ever get to do happy hours anymore because I pick Dafney up from daycare so this will be a fun treat.  Is it 3:30pm yet?  Can you tell I don't get out much?!  

4.  It wouldn't be a complete post without a picture of my Dafney!  She's finally at the point where she loves to walk out of daycare vs. being carried.  And, she can't go anywhere without her "babies".  It's  rare now-a-days to see her without them :)

3.  I don't often stumble upon over-exciting websites, but Groop Dealz is worth sharing!  It's a lot like Groupon, but I feel it tailors more towards kids & women :)  Such as unique jewlerycrafty items, fun gift ideas and over-the-top cute kid items!  All at a really fantastic price!  

2.  We've finally decided that we are going to put our house up for sale.  I'm excited & nervous all at once.  I know that a bigger house is something we need, but I'm so comfortable in our current place.  However, we've had a bunch of foundational problems and we simply need to pack up & move on.  This weekend will be spent organizing, de-cluttering, cleaning & packing.  Jealous, aren't you?!

1.  Last and certainly not least, I want to take a moment to remember, pray for and send thoughts to those affected with the Boston Marathon tragedy yesterday.  I know that you can hear about this everywhere, so I'm going to be very brief and let those remember & grieve how they want, but I send my most sincere thoughts & prayers to Boston, those injured & the families who tragically lost loved ones yesterday.
