Here We Go!

Happy New Year to you! 

Yesterday it snowed literally all day, but it stayed above freezing so we were able to get out and about. We figured the last day of the year was a pretty good day to sell a car, so we met up with a buyer from Craigslist and spent afternoon getting that all situated (more on that later). 

So we enter 2013 a little bit more "trimmed down" - even though it's not our waistlines (yet!). 

Today we start our Whole30 with a breakfast of scrambled eggs and some ground turkey, cherry tomatoes, and broccoli florets. For lunch we're having some broiled chicken breast and roasted asparagus, and for dinner we're going over to my mom's house and we've been promised more beef. It helps to have a plan going into something like this. Last night I indulged in my last sugary cup of hot cocoa and seriously cherished every. last. sip! 

We got word this morning that my sister-in-law was going to have her 4th baby today - 6 weeks early! A healthy baby boy, named Owen Michael Whitehead came into the world right around 12:00pm. He weighed 5lbs, 1 oz and everyone seems to be doing well! I haven't met him yet but the pictures I've seen so far appear that he is just precious! What a day to have a new family member! We all thought we wouldn't see him until mid-February, but this little guy got a jump start on life! We are full of thanks to the Lord for delivering him safely into the world and are praying that he gets to go home soon.

We're also spending the day looking for a new car because I think we're going to get tired of only having one vehicle pretty quickly. However, I am kind of looking forward to being chauffeured around until we find one. Hope you have a wonderful first day of 2013!
