 My mom is visiting this week!  Ever since I went off to college I have never lived very close to my family, I’ve always been at least a few days drive away.  When I was younger it was exciting to be out west on my own, but as I get older it makes me a little sad.  I have a 6 month old and I would really love him to grow up having a wonderful relationship with his grandparents.Continue Reading

Happy weekend, friends!  It’s been rainy and gloomy here for the past few days and I’m really enjoying it.  I love rainy days when I don’t have anywhere important to be and I can just cuddle with my 6 month old and orange tabby all day long.

A few days ago we ventured into the high mountains and got to see some snow!  It wasn’t too cold and it was perfect snowman building snow so we had a lot of fun.  I don’t realize how much I miss seeing snow until I get to play in it.  I’m thinking of going back up today!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the recipes we have for you this week!Continue Reading

 I’ve developed this terrible habit where I can’t just eat a regular garden salad anymore.  I feel the need to put like 1,000 different ingredients into the salad to make it into a salad that I could eat for a meal.  I think I just love salads so much that I need to come up with an excuse to eat them for lunch and dinner!Continue Reading

 Does anyone else feel like these weeks are just flying by these days?  I’m pretty excited it’s the weekend already though.  My little one has finally deemed the baby carrier acceptable and now we can go on longer more exciting hikes, rather than the two stroller friendly hikes we were doing.  It feels so freeing and I’m so happy that our dude likes to hike just as much as we do!

It’s supposed to rain a little bit this weekend, but I’m hoping we can get out and enjoy the cooler temps!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the recipes we have for you this week!  As always, there are some very delicious choices :)

Do you guys ever feel like your to-do list is endless?  And then as soon as you get one thing checked off you realize that there is now something else to add?  That’s how I’ve been feeling lately.  I finally get the kitchen cleaned and then realize that all the clothes are dirty.  Then I get all the clothes washed and realize it’s already dinner time and I have no idea what to cook.  I guess that is just what comes with being an adult and a parent?Continue Reading

 Good morning!  I feel like I  keep seeing pictures and posts from other people about winter storms coming in and lots of snow.  Well, here in Arizona it’s been in the 70s most days and I’m beginning to feel like winter is just not going to happen for us.  We did have a good snow up in the mountains the other day but I could probably wear shorts today and get away with it.  Some people might be jealous of this, but I’m a little sad because I’ve always loved winter.

I am happy we aren’t buried in a few feet of snow though, so I guess I shouldn’t complain too much!  I hope you all are staying warm out there!  And I hope you enjoy the tasty recipes we have for you this week :)
