You guys! I have risen from the dead. Sort of. And it is all thanks to David Bowie. Yes, the David Bowie. Stick with me here. You know how everybody loves hearing about another person’s dreams? Yeah, like I said, stick with me here. [Read more…]
What? Two posts, like actual recipe posts, in one week! Have aliens taken over my body? Maybe. Has my plan of subbing out caffeine for water finally payed off? Possibly. I would have even posted this last night but sometimes you just want to spend time on the phone with your brother making inappropriate comments on his car speakerphone as he goes through the drive-thru. I am the oldest sister; it is my job to annoy my younger brothers. [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.

Chicky chicky parm parm. If you know that word/phrase, then you know one of my all time favorite shows and we can still be friends. If you don’t know it then, well, I guess we can still be friends. It’s from Parks and Recreation. Amy Poehler is my spirit animal. What are your favorite shows of all time? You know, the ones that when nothing is on TV you can just binge watch old reruns and still love the heck out of them even though you know every single line? [Read more…]
Leave it to me to post a recipe for soup just when the weather perks up a bit. Ugh. Anyway, if you couldn’t tell from my Snapchat account, I have been on quite a soup kick this winter. Oh and BTW I have another soup recipe coming next week. Sorry, I’m not sorry! Lately I have been splitting my attention and obsession between soup, HGTV, and Redfin. I seem to get on these kicks during transitional phases in my life. For example when I was pregnant with Andy it was soup, Parenthood, and any baby blog out there that wanted to tell me horror stories about all the things I was doing wrong as a mother. [Read more…]
