Time To Put It Out There

December 22, 2012

It’s been almost three years since I filled out my first guidebook from Leonie.  Wow, how times have changed since then!  Some of my goals that year were: 1) Deepen my yoga practice. 2) Spend more time with my parents. 3) Spend less time in front of the computer and more time with books. 4) [...]

What To Say?

December 5, 2012

Hey.  I was just thinking about this space and wondering what to fill it with today.  As I sit here with the twins (big sis is napping), I started thinking about my life since I began blogging, over 4 years ago.  So much has changed.  Diet and exercise used to be my life.  I thought [...]

We have a new favorite knack around here… Almond Butter Balls, AKA “Rocks”. The first time I presented these to Summer, she pointed at them and said, Rocks.  However, since they came from the fridge and not the backyard, she took a small bite and then another and another, and now I make sure to [...]

Colorado Donuts

November 11, 2012

Let’s talk donuts, shall we? Last week, CD and I took a quick trip to Colorado – two amazing days of hiking while the grandparents loved on all the kiddos.  It was our first time away together since before Summer was born, and although we missed our babies, we had a wonderful time. Hiking in [...]

“Is She Turning Two?”, Piglet Asked Pooh

November 5, 2012

She turned two today, and we celebrated deep in the Hundred Acre Wood… After last year’s Hungry Caterpillar extravaganza, we decided to keep things simple with a small Winnie-the-Pooh party.  So, our families and a couple of friends joined us for the festivities.  It was perfect. Hunny pot party favors: Each guest received a pot [...]

Holiday Ideas

October 18, 2012

I’ve been attending a mom’s group at a local church here in Nashville.  We listen to a speaker, eat a yummy brunch, and then break out into smaller groups with an older mom serving as the group’s mentor.  It’s nice to discuss mamahood with other women going through similar experiences.  Motherhood fills me with much [...]

Nothing Bundt Cakes

October 14, 2012

Last night, Chris and I had friends over for dinner… Rachel (holding a not-asleep Katie), Hoyt, CD, Travis, and Jessica. We dined on Mexican.  I made enchiladas, both beef and black bean, along with Mama Pea’s refried beans and rice.  Jessica brought this amazing guacamole.  Seriously, some of the best guac I’ve ever eaten.  LOVED the big [...]

Casserole Combining

October 12, 2012

So, CD loves sardines.  I’ve tried them, but they’re not my favorite.  However, I’m always willing to try foods I don’t like in hopes that my taste buds will have suddenly changed (Seaweed – someday I will love you!).  Anyway, when Chris put in a request for  Sophia’s Sardine Casserole, I happily obliged… I used [...]
