Travel: Planning for 2019

We had concluded at the start of the year that we would go on only one or two trips in 2019.  We figured they would be somewhat bigger in budget so we decided to limit ourselves to that.  One thing we knew for sure was that we wanted to go to Hawaii again!  Our second…

Infertility: Real and Raw

Note: This was written right after our second failed IUI. I debated as to whether or not I should post this, but this is what infertility is and I wanted to be honest, real and raw. I am okay, and I will get through this, in fact I am feeling much better now, than I…

Cooking: Cuban Sandwich Quesadillas

I had been craving a Cuban Sandwich for some time but obviously it was not an option being on the Keto diet.  My saving grace has been low carb tortillas in place of bread.  You can make essentially anything into a quesadilla, especially sandwiches.  So I went for it.  Luckily during our last Costco trip…

In order to make a prudent choice, we weigh the observed evidence and do our best to screen out our own prejudice in…

Life: Starting a Business!

I’ve had so little time to write recently which makes me a bit sad but I keep telling myself it is all for a very good reason and that once things get a bit more settled I will be able to dedicate more time to our blog.  So what is going on exactly?  Well we…

Marriage: Weekly Discussions (Week 9 & 10)

So sorry! We combined two weeks because we have been CRAZY busy starting our new business (don’t worry you will hear all about it soon)! Roses & Thorns: Jon: Rose – The small business orientation because we got a lot of information and began the process of starting our business. Thorn – I have been…

Weight Loss: Keto Favorites! Pt. II

We’ve been doing Keto now for about 6 months, needless to say we have compiled a few more favorites in that time.  I figured it was about time to update the list and share our current favorites with you! Items you can buy in-store or online: CarbRite Chocolate Chip Brownie Mix These are our newest…
