Menu Plan Monday-2011 Week 5

Can you believe it’s almost February?  I’m sort of glad January is almost over.    I always end up in the doldrums a little bit in January.  Christmas is over and it’s dark so early and it’s really REALLY cold. Last week, we made Alton Brown’s Cuban Sandwiches.  They were REALLY easy and sooo good.  We […]

January Link Love

I can’t believe that we’re getting ready to say goodbye to January.  Wasn’t it just New Year’s Day.  We’ve had a busy month and I’m sure that has something to do with why the days are rushing by so quickly. Last year, I tried to share links with you every Friday, but sometimes there really […]

New Ride

Big Daddy and I have spent time over the last few months discussing a new vehicle.  We are a one car family and sold our second car (a VW Passat wagon that we both LOVED) before we made our big move last summer.  At that time we flirted with the idea of trading in our […]

Menu Plan Monday-2011 Week 4

Big Daddy was gone on business last week.  That means, I make a lot of kid friendly convenience food and mope.  I skip dinner because who can eat when you’re Big Daddy-less.  I feel a little bit lame that I get that mopey and moony over him being gone, but I do. My freezer is […]

Seven Things I’m Sewing for Spring/Summe

You remember my little word, right?  The one I’m trying to live by this year.  Part of that is to not let my craftiness by sidelined.  That means, doing that housework RIGHT now, so my free time is truly free. One thing I love doing is sewing.  I haven’t done much over the past year […]

Menu Plan Monday-2011 Week 3

This time of year always feels like the doldrums for me.  Even though I love winter, the stretch between New Years and the Princess’s birthday feels like it takes forever.    There’s so little to look forward to and the weather is usually cold enough that it’s hard to play outside and you start to weigh […]

Us-part v

There’s more!  Don’t forget to read part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4! (Hey, that rhymed!) I was anxious waiting for Big Daddy.  I was ready to give my heart over.  To take the risk, but it’s hard to be vulnerable.  It’s hard to know that you’re giving someone the opportunity to devastate […]

Apparently as of my writing this 49 states have snow on the ground. Even Hawaii, apparently.  It must be true.  It was on CNN. Of course, it’s been winter here since not long after Halloween.  And I like winter.  I like when the bright, white snow comes and blankets the things that have died or […]

Playroom Redo-Stage 1

I am excited to write this post.  Not because it’s the greatest post I’ve ever written, but because an idea is finally come to fruition.  The Great Playroom Redo is UNDERWAY! You probably don’t feel as excited about that as I do, but let me tell you, I’m THRILLED. Our playroom is a great space.  […]

January 11, 2011


Many, many years ago when I was much younger and we had no children, Big Daddy and I moved into our first apartment.  I had never felt so grown up.  Some of his family made the trip down to our new place and his Mom brought us a casserole inside a Pyrex dish. It had […]
