 Some days these boys are more Sith than Jedi. Here they are getting into character for Jackson's Star Wars Birthday Party tomorrow. Let's see if the rain holds out for a few hours or this Mama is going to go crazy. #starwars #birthday #6yearsold #boymom #family #ourfullplate

 5 breakfasts, 5 lunches and dinner all done before 7AM. As much as I hate the chaos of weekday mornings at least it forces me to be on track and eat healthy. Tonight we will have Paleo Crock Pot Beef Fajitas (recipe on the blog). Love this meal because it is so colorful and easy to "dump" in the crock pot. What's everyone cooking for dinner? @cuisinart #slowcooker #crockpot #mealprep #planaheadpaleo #paleo #jerf #eattherainbow #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 Take that @McDonalds. Today I made a Paleo version of a McGriddle using @brittany_angell extra crispy paleo waffles from her cookbook #everylastcrumb and sandwiched bacon and an egg in between. Clearly all my boys thought I was genius too and they couldn't take their (cute) grubby hands off it. After it was all said and done, I think I had a bite or two, the rest was eaten by the savages. #storyofmylife #momwoes #childrenneedsfirst #growingboys #boymom #saveforgrocerybillsnotcollege #paleo #paleofamily #mcdonalds #mcgriddle #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 Tonight was the first time I served my Crock Pot Paleo Italian meatballs (recipe on the blog) over julienne cute butternut squash "noodles" instead of the usual zucchini zoodles or spaghetti squash noodles. It was good, but too sweet for my taste. What's your go-to non grain substitution for pasta? #paleo #vegetables #jerf #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 A boy in the rain. At least he wasn't rolling around in the mud (unlike yesterday). Never a dull day with this toddler. Rain = free entertainment on this early Sunday morning while we wait for the rest of the family to wake up. #toddlerlife #thirdchild #keepsmeonmytoes #rainfordays #texasisgoingtofloataway #boymom #family #sunday #ourfullplate
