Trip to Cahokia Mounds

We took a trip to Cahokia Mounds today to learn about the Indians that were local to our area. I've never been there before today, and, lover of history that I am, I thought it was GREAT! Because my hubby was with us, we couldn't do much walking, because he sprained his ankle. But they had a wonderful museum, and the exhibits were awesome. I give it an A++!

Hubby's Birthday!

Today was my husbands birthday....I LOVE birthdays! My own mom always made it such a special day when we were young, so I like to do things BIG!
Birthday's are such a wonderful time to celebrate that person, and to treasure what a gift they are to you! This year my husband had already bought a big present, so the kids and I went and got him some smaller, still fun, presents.

To eat or not to eat.....

Recently I have been going to the chiropractor-a very new experience for me. The chiropractor I go to also deals with herbal medicine and treating the whole body in general. It really is amazing though! I have already seen huge improvements in myself on so many different levels. I started out by going so that I could try and get rid of the migranes that I have. I don't want to be on painkillers and medicine the rest of my life. I have been trying to help myself for quite a while, but this has been the push I needed.
So, with this new help comes a problem for me. Well, not really a "problem" but something very difficult. I am an emotional eater. So especially at times like this where there is an abundance of baking and yummy things like soups constantly on the stove, I struggle. I have finally kicked my coffee habit, which is huge considering I pretty much had coffee all day! So now I get to have it only when I truly want a cup. And that is all I have.
My biggest issue that I'm trying to take care of now is white carbs. I've know for a long time that I have an issue in that area, but now that I have seen how much it affects my health, I'm on a new mission to get rid of them! Next will be sugar~!
