    I didn't car share with a neighbor but did carpool in 2 times this week with my husband! It's not ideal because he has to come in a little earlier, but he was a good sport about it.

    You guys, I never get this much sleep! Trying to add 30 minutes is really helping! And my FitBit automatically tracks it!!

    Organic banana and peanut butter smoothie, in the vitamix because any other blender just doesn't make it as smooooth!

      I just did 5 hours of meal prep and clean up (mostly for my husband since I'm going to be out of town) -- wish I had taken on that challenge! Good for you!
