Our {late} Weekend

November 15, 2012

First things first, I want to share this shot of me and my newest favorite accessory.  A few weeks back I signed up for StitchFix, a really fun new way to keep your wardrobe up to date.  See, I’m a mom of the yoga-pants-and-Tshirt variety about 85% of the time.  I mean, it’s just me […]

Spicy Asian Marinated Steak

November 14, 2012

When it comes to our meals for the week I am really strict, working to really stay within a tight budget ($100/week for all of our food and household items).  I try to stay really specific about what I’m making so that when I get to the store with my list I know that I […]

It’s Shoe Box Time!

November 13, 2012

Well guys, National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child is upon us!  I am so excited to take Weston to our nearest drop-off location and start the box on its journey to a little boy somewhere in this great big world.  I’m excited to sit down and pray with my husband and my son, once […]

White Chocolate-Covered Walnut Cookies

November 12, 2012

Prepare yourselves: this is going to be one of the most addicting recipes I’ve ever posted on this blog. We all know by now that the sweet/salty combination is insanely good.  It keeps us coming back for more – kind of like chocolate-dipped bacon or salted caramel cake.  Your mind says ‘no’ but your tastebuds […]

Turkey Ancho Chili

November 9, 2012

Is it just me or has this past week literally flown by?  I used to say that I loved it when weeks would fly by and then we’d suddenly arrive at t the weekend, but after yesterday’s post and the realization of my baby being 8 months old I think I’d like to have time […]

8 Months Old!

November 8, 2012

Eight months ago this little boy that is sleeping one room over from me was born.  Like he came out of my body.  What a miracle! Needless to say time really has been flying, even more so since it feels like we really just landed here in Little Rock (which we kind of have).  Our […]

Whole Wheat Vegan Almond Pumpkin Cookies

November 7, 2012

¡Ay, caramba!   Yet another pumpkin cookie recipe.  You guys, Nate is freaking out.  Long gone are the days of plain ol’ chocolate chip cookies.  Pumpkin has overrun our entire lives, and while I could not be more excited about it, my pumpkin-hating husband is a tad disappointed. The one thing he won’t tell you […]

10-Minute Creamy Ricotta Spinach & Shells

November 5, 2012

I’m starting to understand what moms mean when they say they have no time. To be totally honest I wasn’t all that great about time management prior to having Weston, but now?  It’s practically nonexistent.  I keep meaning to get a calendar to help me because apparently the ones I have going on my phone […]

I don’t know about where y’all live, but autumn is still in full swing here in Arkansas.  The trees are still changing, there is a lingering crispness in the air and the sun still shines brightly.  The nights get darker faster, but the days are so intensely beautiful that it almost doesn’t matter.   Autumn […]
