the late show

As you have probably heard on the news, Stephen Colbert is replacing David Letterman on the Late Show. My dad used to watch The Colbert Report, and he read his book, I am America (And So Can You!). Although some people claim he is actually making fun of both Conservatives and Christians, after watching this video and this article, it seems his faith is real. It's nice to see a Christian late night host. 


gluten free update

Lent is more than halfway over, therefore I am almost over with my gluten-free diet. I wanted to do this diet for a few reasons:

1. To sacrifice something I love in order to think more about the Lord
2. To see if I had more energy without gluten
3. To be more aware of what goes into my body by thinking about what I eat

I don't feel like I have more energy, but I'm really glad I did it because I just feel healthier eating more meat, veggies and fruit. There are some really tasty gluten free recipes that I will share in an upcoming post.

Did you give up something for Lent? If so, have you kept up with it?

honest notes from kids

MOM: Just thought I would tell u good night. Your dad worked in yard today got his panties in flower bed looks nice. He will work on yours tomorrow. Love yo

ME: Why do you keep face timing me and then hanging up lol 
DAD: Sorry… I’m playing around. Didn’t know it was going through. I’m sick with a cold and bored as hell. I guess it shows. 
DAD: I’ve even been face timing myself. 

DAD: How long should I bake the cookies for? The instructions say 9-11 minutes. 
ME: I do 5 on each rack, so 10 total. 
DAD: What do you mean by each rack? The bottom then the top? 
ME: Yes if you put two trays in at once 
DAD: What if I only put one in at a time? Do I still follow that approach, and, if so, does it matter if I do the top or bottom first? 
ME: Then just do 10 mins on the middle rack. 
DAD: OK. Thanks. Might have more questions. Waiting for butter to soften up. 

Things people think about on their first day of work.
Kids being honestly funny.
