52 New Things – Week 20

Week 20 and we’re still going strong!

Jamie –

This week was the end of an experiment. I am what you call a flexitarian.  I eat meat rarely (maybe once a month.  I eat fish more often).  Personally, I think it’s a stupid name for someone who can’t commit (j/k to all those flexitarians out there).

But this month, I committed to one month of eating vegetarian meals only.  I experimented with many new recipes that were filling and nutritious.  My family didn’t really have any complaints as they went on the journey with me.

I have eaten “flexitarian” for many years as it just seems to be what my body prefers, so I decided I would try to go all the way and see how it went.  It was a success.  However, I’m still not ready to commit to a complete vegetarian lifestyle because I just love bacon too much.

My new thing is a cleaning calendar. I know, contain your excitement!  I keep losing track of the filth and then it overpowers me. So I’m treating it like I treat important things- I’m putting it on my schedule.

Angie –

We visited the Cincinnati zoo. It was incredible. We were in Lexington visiting my sister and decided to make the drive a little over an hour north. The girls had a blast, I can’t say enough about how nice the zoo was. They have tons of animals, animals that we don’t have here at our zoo so it was a great change of pace. the polar bears were putting on a show and kept the girls mesmerized for a long time. If you are ever up that way, stop in but be prepared to spend the day, the zoo is massive. Make sure to mention your zoo membership if you have one for Birmingham. We were able to save 50% on admission, it was just over $20 for me and my 3 girls.
