RIP Beets

This weekend had a little hitch in it. We had a beet genocide of sorts happen in our yard. A certain little toddler gleefully pulled up every last one of my month old beet plants in about two seconds flat. The look of joy on her face as she was doing it will be forever […]

Bread and Pea Shoots

This year has been a doozy for me so far. I usually take great pride in the fact that I (almost) never get sick, but this is the third time this winter. I have heard others in the mama group we go to saying similar things,many families seem to have been hit especially hard by […]

Sundays are for….

….making messes…. ….and planning projects. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I can’t get enough of this beautiful Spring weather we are having!


Umm….hey there. I have been feeling terribly uninspired when it comes to blogging, though I promise to change that soon. I miss my blogging friends. I have been reading a ton. I have finished nine books this month alone. NINE. I think that is more than I read all of last year. (By the way, […]

We Are Moved!

It’s official. We are 100% moved into our new home! To say I am exhausted would be a bit of an understatement. I just nursed Lucy to sleep, wolfed down a burrito from the taco shop, and am now enjoying a glass of wine and Halloween H20 (our cables not up yet and the original […]

The Power Outage

Lucy at her 4 month appointment Thank you all for your amazing responses to my last post about meal planning. I haven’t had a chance to respond to the comments yet, but I do plan on doing a follow up post very soon. I had planned on working on a Link Love post Thursday night […]
