Fundraising · JDRF · One Walk

Kicking off fundraising season with MudLOVE bands!

By purchasing a MudLOVE band, we will also be donating $5.00 from each sale to Luke’s Lifesavers for JDRF for the One Walk in September! We work hard each year to raise money to give to JDRF for Type 1 Diabetes research to hopefully, ultimately find a cure. We hope & pray in Luke’s lifetime he will see the benefits of this hard work and will be able to throw away all of his needles, insulin, test strips, and everything else diabetes related.

So, let me introduce you to the things that keep Luke alive each and every day. (And the reason why… Continue reading Meet the things that keep Luke alive…

On days like that, we will most likely run through a drive through and grab something on the way to… Continue reading Nutritional Facts: Fast Food

Doctors. 

October must be the month for doctors. Luke had his quarterly endo appointment at the beginning of the month. (Yeah for an A1c of 4.9%!) During fall break, we made up a dentist appointment I completely spaced the week before. (No cavities!) The dentist was impressed with Luke’s height and shoe size, but not so much… Continue reading Doctors.

Breakfast for the win!

It’s Fall Break and that means we actually make and eat breakfast together! While I was getting groceries this week, I found Kodiak Cakes.  Luke had two waffles with sugar free syrup  and a cup of Fairlife milk for 45g carbs and 25g protein! TWENTY-FIVE GRAMS OF PROTEIN! (And they’re tasty, too!) I think we… Continue reading Breakfast for the win!

Type 1 Tips: Keeping track of expiration dates.

It’s October… the best month of the year! As I turned the page in my planner this morning, I noticed this in the margin. Because we {thankfully} don’t use our glucagon kits on a regular basis, I don’t think to check expiration dates. Earlier this year, thanks to my friend Sara, I decided to put… Continue reading Type 1 Tips: Keeping track of expiration dates.
