Some St. Patrick’s Day Confetti


Good Monday morning and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I don’t know about you, but I desperately needed this weekend.  Work for me right now is a bit crazy to say the least and I really needed some time to decompress.  I had a beautiful weekend with friends, church family and best of all, my bed! Yay for Sunday afternoon naps!


I have a few things to random things to share and celebrate:

  1. I completed my second round AdvoCare’s herbal cleanse.  I can’t recommend it enough.  I lost a few pounds I had gained back over the holidays since I did it last time.  I feel like it reset some good eating habits and just like its name, I feel clean again.  It’s super affordable and you can do it without doing the full AdvoCare line if you don’t want to.
  2. Speaking of AdvoCare, I’ve been getting lots of searches for gluten-free options. I created a separate resource page for gluten-free Advocare info in case you have some questions.
  3. Along those healthy-ish lines, I finally got some accountability with my exercise.  I bought BeachBody’s T25 Gamma DVD program and joined an accountability group.  I just finished my first week and holy cow. I LOVE this program.  It’s made of 4 different 25 minute exercise programs that you rotate through.  I love the instructor Shaun T. and the minutes zoom by.  Scott is doing it with me so that helps on the accountability front too. I’ve even been getting up extra early and actually looking forward to the workout.  It’s crazy!
  4. And finally, I wanted to point you over to a guest post over at Mommy in Bonlee today. I’m recommending 4 books to change your mind, marriage, time and faith.  I wrote this last month and if I were to write it again, I certainly would now choose Battlefield of the Mind as one of the four.  Check out the rest and show Laresa some comment love over there!


I hope your St. Patrick’s Day is wonderful!


Christ beside me, Christ before me,
Christ behind me, Christ within me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me.
– Saint Patrick


  1. Thanks for guest-posting, Amy! Your book recommendations are great!

  2. Excited to check out your book recs! I needed this weekend, too — and it was actually a relaxing one for once! I really need to do a healthy eating reset… but I rebel when I get too many rules at once. I need to make small changes.

  3. I am so proud of you! Glad you are loving Gamma! And – totally can relate to the need for weekends. Too bad they don’t come more often.
