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…

Izzy’s Buddy

Meet Frank. Frank is a bee, from PillowPet land.  Izzy’s looovvveeess Frank. Why is his name Frank?  Well, I asked Izzy what we should name him, and the first babble out of her mouth kinda sounded like “Frank” so we went with it. Izzy sits on Frank. Lounges with Frank. Loves on Frank. Eats with…

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…
