January 1st – Good times!

Good morning!!
How is your 2nd day of 2010 going?
First off I have been DYING to tell you about my
favourite cookbook (aka inspiration bible) but I was giving it as a Christmas gift to my parents, and was sure they would have bought if I mentioned it on here!!
It is full of gluten free, dairy free and egg free recipes
As I have said before, I am terrible for following recipes, so I really use this cookbook for inspiration and everything that I have made is amazing. 
Plus it includes a great Elimination/Detox plan in it!

The authors have a blog and you can order the book online here
It is by far the best cookbook I have found!

I also 2 more beautiful blogger awards!!
Thanks to Prevention Rd and Simply Life
Thanks so much ladies, I love both of your blogs!!
The details are to pass it onto a bunch of bloggers and tell 7
(i think) random facts about myself.
1. I am obsessed with hoodies, I wear them pretty much every day.
2.That being said, I feel awkward when I dress up, I think I look funny!
3. I am obsessed with LIP SMACKERS – I always have one with me (if not more)
4. I have been to Mexico 6x – 3 in school for missionary work, 1 when I was a nanny (with the family), 1x for a friends wedding, and 1x last March with Dave.
5. I love cheesy reality shows (Real Housewives, Top Model, Real World etc)
6. I want to get married somewhere with a white sandy beach and crystal blue water – with all my friends and close family around.
7. When I moved back to my hometown 3x years ago, I was convinced I would never meet anyone, but I wanted to move back so badly, that I came to terms with living life single forever (not many fish in this little fish bowl) but then I met Dave…  Funny how things work out!
As for passing this on… I pass it onto YOU!
I think you are all wonderful and beautiful and I thank you for being one of my readers!! 
I look forward to reading your random facts!

So many people in blog world I have eating pancakes lately,
I got the bug!!
They were simple pancakes, but I loaded them with yumminess!
Almond Butter, 1/2 a nanner, chia seeds, cacao nibs, sprinkle of macca powder, coconut oil and a wee bit of maple syrup!!  They were tasty!
And I slammed back this too.. – YUCK!
It was full of all this goodness
I didn’t feel like making a green monster this morning, but I wanted to get all the goodness in anywhoo…
Our day yesterday was super relaxing and nice.
We took down the Christmas decorations and revamped the living room
And played tons of Wii – Mario Kart – SO FUN!!
It was a perfect day! Hope your day was great too!
