You guys, I can't be the only one that struggles with rest and feeling like I can't/don't have time for it! Right???

"I have a problem. It drives my husband crazy. I can’t stand naps. Well, actually it’s not really that I can’t stand them, it’s that I have a never ending to-do list of things that have to get done continuously running through my head. I don’t have time for naps. Then throw in kids, only half of which regularly nap, and the opportunities for naps are far and few between.

This paragraph jumped out at me when I was reading Start by +Jon Acuff 
'Rest is a gift, not a reward. It’s not a hobby that lazy people take advantage of; it’s woven into the fabric of our very biology. The body is designed to rest. I don’t have to earn that with my performance. Rest is not a by-product of my success, it’s a  by-product of my humanity. I don’t have to get ahead to enjoy it or need it.'

I don’t have to have a check mark next to everything on my list before I’m allowed to sit down and breathe. Sometimes a short pause is what I need to regroup and gain a better perspective on life. That’s not what I want to do though. I want to keep moving and getting things done. Going from one project to the next."

A couple months ago we decided to eliminate wheat from our diets. Our 11 month old has been struggling with eczema on his face or a long time now and nothing we've put on it as helped (and I want to try and treat it as naturally as possible. ) We decided it was worth a shot.

In the post I share why we did it, whether I was looking forward to it, if it was easier or harder than I thought, and a story about a friend's dog with chronic ear infections (and how they got them to stop).

Next week I telling my tips for how we did it on a budget and after that I'll share a list of wheat free recipes/food ideas if you ever decide to do the same.

I can't tell you the last time I've had a good night sleep. My 11 month old still wakes up to nurse several times.

I like these tips from +Angela Parker on how to recharge after a sleepless night. I love peppermint oil but haven't used it to energize after being up countless times with a teething baby before. I might have to change that. :-)

Can homemade pizza really be budget friendly? Especially when you can buy frozen pizza for under $3.

I have 4 tips to make a frugal pizza and a cost comparison. (Another plus of making your own - you know exactly what's in it!)
