Sausage, Leek and Mushroom Pizza

by Heather on November 19, 2014

Sausage, Leek and Mushroom Pizza is a warm and comforting pizza to enjoy with friends. Crumbled pork sausage, butter-sauteed leeks, mushrooms and a bed of bechamel sauce are sure to please.

Y’all, I’ve been eating this goodness all week and don’t see an end in sight. Definitely worthy of Friday pizza night! Or, you know, any other day of the week. Get the recipe here!


Gender Reveal Numero Dos

Gender Reveal Numero Dos

This little nugget. This little one has been wearing momma out, with never-ending pregnancy sickness, heartburn, insomnia and an indefinite emotional rollercoaster.


But this little one has also been kicking up a storm since we hit the double-digit weeks, which makes momma so happy to feel and know that this little one is doing OK. Every little punch, roll and kick brings such a ridiculous amount of joy, and despite all the discomfort and continuous breakdowns, I still can’t believe how blessed I am.


We’ve asked Wes for the past 10 weeks if he wants a baby brother or baby sister, and 98% of the time he immediately responded with “Bruver.” Although the night before we went in for our 20-week ultrasound he declared sister.


So what is it?

Well friends, I’m so truly excited to announce that we are having another BABY BOY!!! And this little guy seems like he’s going to be rather spirited, which makes my heart excited and maybe a little scared. Regardless, we are so excited and feel completely blessed and I’m happy to finally be able to share!


Name to come later…if we can ever decide on one :)

Who is excited about Christmas already? Because y’all, if I were one of you guys in the northern states getting all the snow already?
