Flower Power

Izzy’s fabric arrived yesterday!  I am in love with it! I found what I was looking for from a great shop on etsy (xo.gigi).  They arrived 2 days after I ordered, neatly folded and wrapped, with a nice little note from the shop owner!  I’m going to take swatches with me to a local fabric…

Spicing Things Up

Not like that. Stop being nasteee, lol!  I’m talking about in the kitchen!  I’ve been thinking about food a lot lately, and as I read new recipes, and watch things like Top Chef, I realize just how many different varieties of herbs and spices there are, and how these can be combined in SO many…

Happy Thoughts Tuesday

When I woke up this morning, still not feeling well, I thought of a lot of things I could complain about.   But complaining never makes you feel good.  In fact, for me at least, I always feel worse, because now I’m mad about whatever I was complaining about.  So instead, I’m going to tell you…

Dear Izzy

First of all, it’s after 9pm. Why are you up, and so energetic? Next, stop trying force me to put my shoes on. I know you like to be outside, but mommy decides when it’s time to go, not you. Putting my shoes on my lap, shoving them in my face, and even going so…

Random Makeup Post

Yeah, the title is totally unimaginative. eh..  I thought about Fab Friday, or Fancy Friday, but this post isn’t about to pack nearly enough pizazz to get either of those titles, lol! Anyway, I did my makeup today, for the first time in what seems like forever, so I wanted to share! Eyes Lips And…

Hard Headed

Have you ever heard that ” You can’t out-train bad eating habits”? I’m no diet or nutrition expert by ANYBODY’s measure, but it makes perfect sense to me.  Erika over at BGG2WL says it all the time.  I understand the logic.  I believe the science.  So why is it that the part of my brain…

Valentines Day Gift

This is my Valentines Day gift. 🙂 why? Because my husband had the good sense to ask me what, if anything I wanted. He gave me the option of being surprised, or choosing a gift. So I chose. Because I knew that he never would have bought me that on his own. He would have…

Trying New Things

So, I’m sure you guys have seen commercials for the new product “Philadelphia Cooking Creme” from Kraft.  I decided to try it out with my weekly pasta dish! It comes in different flavors, but I decided to go with the plain (original) flavor. I started by browning some onions and fresh garlic. Then I added…
