Money Matters

Even though it’s pretty early in her life, Byron and I have already been thinking about how we’re going to teach Izzy about the value of money.  We agree that it’s important to start very early.  Like, 5 years old early.  Around that time, we will start giving her an allowance, that will be split…

Izzy’s (Potential) New Room Mood Board + Pics of the House

So, in the excitement leading up to the (hopefully successful closing of) purchase of our new home, I put together a little mood board of what I want Izzy’s room to look like.  I have ZERO experience with this, so it doesnt mesh exactly with what’s in my head, but it serves it’s purpose! 1-Izzy’s…

Baked Shrimp Egg Rolls

Ok, so you guys know how much I love Asian food right?  It tastes great, but not always easy on your waistline!  Egg rolls are a particular weakness of mine, but the prospect of the deep fried, golden goodness, doesn’t really mesh that well with my weight loss efforts (even though my taste buds were…

Sore

(First, I want to thank you guys for all of your kind words on the post about my mom.  She is feeling well enough to eat, and actually keep it down, and she has another appointment to visit a specialist.  (A Gastroenterologist? Is that the right word?)I pushed her to make sure that she tells…

Numb

My mother is sick.  She’s been sick for about 10 years, with no real diagnosis, and no successful treatment.  It began after a D&C procedure (after a miscarriage), even though we only recently realized that maybe there was a link.  10 years of constant nausea, not being able to keep anything down, even water, during…

Science Project

That’s exactly what my finger looks like now.  The surgicel came off today, and underneath is just…..ughhh.  I have a picture of the awfulness if any of you want to see, because it is truly, truly, interesting in how gross it is.  I’m joking about it, but im honestly contemplating another trip to the dr.…

Randoms

The mandolin went in the trash. I got sick to my stomach just looking at the thing.  I figured I would keep it,since it worked well (too well) but I just…I can’t. I tried to cook yesterday. That didn’t go so well.  Byron took over. Izzy is getting cuter every day. Yesterday when byron came…
