It’s All Greek (Quinoa) to Me

My husband hates participating in sports that involve too much set up, gear, general preparation: Windsurfing, snowboarding, sailing. I would love to say this means he is a little crazy.  Because, well, I enjoy calling him a little crazy. But to be honest, I totally get it.  Who wants to spend all of that time […]

I Am Willing to Take Loaner Ponies, Unicorns, Butterflies or Babies

Confessions of a Hand Sanitizer Junkie

I asked Erin, from Mommy on the Spot if I could please request that she return the favor and guest post for me.  I have been even more super busy than usual lately.  Ironically, largely because of my two sick children that are constantly, well…sick.  Like, I am soooo over sickness of any kind.  I […]

BBQ-ish Chicken

My Wednesdays have changed since I first started this segment.  They used to be spent entirely with the boys, although the afternoon did entail rushing Carlitos to pre-school and then rushing home in time to make some dinner.

This Ain’t So Bad

It happened.  It finally happened. I turned 30. It actually happened almost a week ago, but I really haven’t had time to acknowledge it yet.  Looks like 30 is going to be a busy year! Every birthday since 23 I have been having a mini (gigantic, if you ask my husband) anxiety attack and emotional […]

Pantry Pasta

Before I write anything else, let me just clarify that this blog is not actually turning into solely ‘What’s for Supper Wednesdays’…it just looks that way.  The truth is that the past week has entailed both boys being sick for 4 days with a lovely virus that included 104.4 degree fevers, a long weekend on […]
