You guys hear that? That whirring noise? It is a familiar noise for this time of year. It signals a change in the seasons. Yep, that lulling humming whir is coming from my seasonal BFF, my humidifier. Ah, now with that going on full steam, I can smell the crisp fall air approaching and smell the pumpkin spiced-everything floating in the air. [Read more…]
Talk about coming in under the wire here! Only a few more hours left to your Monday. Most of you have probably already eaten dinner. How dare I share this too late and make you think, “Dayyuuuummm I wish I had me some of dat!”
My apologies. [Read more…]
This week’s edition of the series that I like to think is single-handedly bringing America back to the dinner table features a rendition of a dish my mom made for us all the time when we were growing up.

A change in seasons always makes me want to do heavy duty cleaning and rearranging. Mike is a huge fan of this quality about me. He is the one who does all the heavy lifting all around here so you better believe he looooves this quality about me. Over the weekend we completely rearranged our living room and front room area. In addition to the rearrange we did some light baby proofing since somebody is all about crawling and pulling himself up to standing on things. [Read more…]
