On Our Plates: 8 Weeks of Menu Planning

When I made the transition from Working Mom (Out of the Home) to Working Mom (From Home) and left the easy security of a corporate job for a more fulfilling and exciting, though logistically more complicated, life of a fulltime freelancer, our schedules got a little bit hectic. Thankfully, because we had been meal planning… Continue reading On Our Plates: 8 Weeks of Menu Planning

Five on Friday: Cotton Candy Grapes and Hideous Baby Dolls

I had a whole slew of posts to, you know, post, between Friday and today. But it’s Friday again, and nary a post did make its way on to the blog. Regardless of that fail, I’m jumping in with Five on Friday again this week! ONE! At Target this week, a small, sweet old lady… Continue reading Five on Friday: Cotton Candy Grapes and Hideous Baby Dolls

Since I’ve Been Gone + On Our Plates

Oooooh heeeeey, three weeks later. Man. Time. What the? Some big things have happened in the past few weeks, namely that my injured toenail finally fell off. Also, my daughter (it is still so surreal to say that and have it be true) cut her first two teeth and is trying desperately to crawl. I… Continue reading Since I’ve Been Gone + On Our Plates

Since the arrival of our little chunk of light, our cocker spaniel has maintained her status quo of quasi-despondency, quasi-independence, quasi-sweetness. Our weimeraner, however, has developed a brand new level of anxiety… partially because we are… Continue reading On Our Plates + Dog Gone It

Toe-tally Great Week + On Our Plates

What had happened was… My dad fondly (or at least I will continue to perceive it as fondly) refers to me as “my son, Caroline,” not in a Bruce Jenner type of way (or at least I will continue to perceive it as such) thanks to my incredible brute strength and burly, ruddy, handsome features.… Continue reading Toe-tally Great Week + On Our Plates

On Our Plates + Belly Laughs

This week we were rewarded with Nora Beth’s first belly laughs. I feel like every single day I wake up it’s like I’ve made it through the night without having my color changed/ticket pulled/apple picked/whatever sort of behavior methodology taking place in classrooms today (HAHAHA WHO AM I KIDDING. Behavior modification doesn’t happen today. LOLOLOL),… Continue reading On Our Plates + Belly Laughs
