Sponor Spotlight: Tough Chik


First, I have to say that I love Tough Chick!!  I have been a part of Team Tough Chik this past year and the women on the team are the most supportive, encouraging women I have met in running/athletic circles.  If you are a runner, cyclist, triathlete, etc, I highly recommend checking out Team Tough Chick.

Ok, so on to the Sponsor Spotlight.  Tough Chik is a company that makes performance clothing for women.  They make cute, yet functional clothing for running, cycling and triathlons, as well as cute tees to for everyday wear that proclaim your love for the sport of your choice.  I have several items from tough Chick and they are comfortable and great to run in!

Tough Chik was started by Shannon and Angela.  To read how it all got strated, go here.  It is a cute story!  As I mentioned before about all of the companies that have so graciously offered to support the Run for the Little Flowers, Tough Chik is passionate about supporting women in their passion.  They aim to design clothing that is functional and encouraging.  We are all Tough Chiks and Shannon and Angela designed clothes to remind us of that fact!

But Tough Chick does not stop there.  They further support women by donating a portion of the profits to Project Athena. Project Athena helps women who have had breast cancer or gone through other traumatic events to achieve their athletic goals and dreams.

And, Tough Chik has generously donated a $20 gift certificate to their store for the Run for the Little Flowers 5K .  So, go check it out and plan what you will get if you are the winner!!

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

My verse for the year

But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.   Isaiah 6:48

There are boxes being unpacked in our home.  Boxes packed and meant to be unpacked in a different home, our new home, in a matter of two weeks.  

About two weeks before Christmas things changed.  Situations changed.  And what we were convinced was God's will just months before, seemed so unlike it now.  Things beyond our control happened and suddenly we were praying and we felt that the best and only solution was to walk away from this new house.  And at the end of  a week of uncertainty, anxiety and tension, once the decision was made to walk away from the house, there was a great deal of peace.   But, as the dust settles from the decision, even though we know it is the best for everyone involved, there is still sadness, still this sense of loss.  As we have prayed again and again, we know each of all of the steps we have made in this whole house journey …

Yonanas and a yummy protein chocolate peanut butter ice cream

I have to admit, I have a sweet tooth.  A big sweet tooth.  I blame it on genetics.  My dad loves sweets and I think my grandmother, his mother, subsisted only on foods that contained sugar.  But, when you are working on eating healthy and bringing the whole family along with you, things like ice cream, cookies and cakes have to replaced by something better.

So, when Lena from JOYfilled family posted about the Yonanas she got, I wanted to try it!  Yonanas makes "ice cream" from frozen bananas.  I have heard of making "ice cream" this way before and I have tried it in our blended, but it usually came out quite liquidy.  So, when we got a gift card for Amazon, I knew exactly what I wanted to buy.

I have used the Yonanas several times and I love it!!  The consistency of the "ice cream" is very smooth, light and creamy.  My 4 year old, who is a very picky eater, loves his new "ice cream."  Now, my older boys could not be fooled . . . they immediatel…
