Weekend Festivities

A relaxing weekend...Finally! It's seems like we've been going non-stop lately, so it was nice to spend a weekend at home with nothing to do.



Saturday morning, we decided to experiment with Owen's menu. As most of you know, Owen is on a very strict low fat diet because of his diagnosis of VLCAD. His metabolic nutritionist recently changed his allowable fat intake to 10 grams a day, which was very exciting because up til this point he was only allowed 2 grams of fat per day. So, on Saturday morning we tried low fat blueberry pancakes...and Owen LOVED them!


For those of you who are wondering how to make low-fat pancakes...we used the Heart Smart Bisquick, skim milk (0 fat), egg beaters (0 fat), and fat-free Promise butter. And instead of greasing the griddle, we sprayed it with Smart Balance Omega non stick cooking spray.



After a short nap, Owen and I headed out for a little shopping with Cassady and Layla. We went to OOPS, the most random store in Northwest Arkansas. It's like a TJ max on steroids...one minute your looking at area rugs and the next minute your looking at a statue, food, greenery, lamps, or a water hose...You never know what you're going to find at OOPS. They also have the biggest rocking chair I've ever seen...so of course I had to take a picture.
