I know I am breaking every blogging rule I have ever had by posting a pumpkin recipe before it is October. The truth is that I had my mom come over and help me with the gremlins so I could bring this brain child into fruition. And when you have free childcare, you take that chance, cook your pumpkin recipe, and shut the heck up. Plus, it is basically October anyway, right? [Read more…]
Is this title appropriate? Mom, I know you are already saying, “No.” If I offend, I apologize. I just couldn’t think of more appropriate descriptive terminology for these meatballs. Speaking of big ass, I started running. Some of you that know me, probably just dropped dead. Somebody do CPR on my close friends, because I speak the truth. I don’t know if it will last but I am giving it a go. Me telling all of you about it is kind of like me holding myself accountable.
So, give it a week or two and somebody ask me again, if I am still running. [Read more…]
Holy moly (in Andy’s words). What a long ass recipe title and what a weekend. If you followed along on Snapchat and Instagram, you know what I am talking about. If not, ummm, why aren’t you following along on, like, the one weekend a year I go out with my gal pals???? I understand. I am sure you live a more exciting life than me so you didn’t want to see all the over drinking and over eating I did all weekend long in my beautiful Chi town. (Recap post coming soon). [Read more…]
It’s about that time in the post pregnancy phase of life in which I come to realize that all the benefits that come from carrying a baby, i.e. beautiful thick hair, clear skin (and for me, weight loss), have sadly come to an end. The move into the new house kept me preoccupied for a while. But we have many mirrors in this house so I can no longer avoid my own reflection. Big old chin zit. Great. Oh boy, is that the start of a bald spot or receding hairline on the right side of my head? I am 100% sure I am not carrying a baby currently, but that looks like the start of a food baby/beer belly. Ugh!
I have to admit, I did notice this a few weeks ago. It was like I didn’t want to admit it was happening though. I then started to do this weird kind of reasoning with myself. Tell me if you have said some of these things to yourself recently. [Read more…]
Well, we are officially home owners. Signed all the papers on Monday. Have I packed a thing yet? Nope! We aren’t moving until the first weekend in June, so I guess I have time. Time. Time to sit here and think of all the things that we need for the house. Time to sit and think about all the money we don’t have to pay for said items in new house. Cue the freak out. Is home ownership really all it is cracked up to be? [Read more…]
