Week 3: The Art of Being Humbled

March 30, 2012

I wrote a short little ‘update’ the other day talking about all of the things that being a parent has taught me so far.  I think that something in the recesses of my mind I figured that if I wrote a post about how much I’ve learned and how my baby boy is teaching me […]

Karina Dresses – Maternity Style & Beyond

March 29, 2012

You guys remember that one time when I spent a weekend in San Francisco with a ton of incredible food bloggers at the Foodbuzz Festival? Me too.  It was an incredible weekend! [photo from A Foodie Stays Fit] While I was there I was about 28 weeks pregnant, which loosely translated means that I looked […]

Valencia Orange Glazed Sweet Potatoes

March 28, 2012

Did y’all know it’s Friday? Oh?  You did?  GOOD!  See yesterday I had that thing happen that no one likes, everyone dreads, and it kills the dreams of those it happens to.   I thought it was Friday.  But ’twas Thursday instead.   Sigh. Is there ever a letdown that is so gigantic as the […]

Sweet Potato Goat Cheese Tater Tots

March 28, 2012

HOLY GOODNESS.  Y’all.  Really.  Need.  To.  Make.  These.  Now. I’m going to be honest here:  making my own tater tots kind of freaked me out big time.  See, I don’t know why but in the same way that I’m unreasonably terrified of baking with yeast, I’m almost equally as scared to do something unfamiliar with […]

Learning to Let Go

March 27, 2012

Thanks to this little man I’m learning to let go. Learning to let go of rules, because babies don’t play by rules.   Learning to let go of schedules because newborns don’t know what a schedule is.   Learning to let go of my neat-freak-psycho-organization side.  Because there’s no time for that when you’re snuggling […]

When it comes to cooking and baking you guys know by now that I’m not shy about my love for butter, cheese, bacon and otherwise all things delicious.  It’s true:  I’m not vegan, nor do I ever plan on becoming that way.  That being said, besides the utter lack of eggs and butter in our […]

Week 2 – Hanging in There

March 23, 2012

Weston is a whopping 2 weeks old today and my brain can scarcely believe it.  How is it that just 13 days ago he was still living in my belly?  That’s the craziest thing about pregnancy and childbirth to me thus far – one day you’re pregnant and the next you’re not.  And BAM!  There’s […]

Grilled & Smashed Avocado Pico de Gallo

March 22, 2012

OK OK so I’m stealing this recipe.  From myself.  Sort of. I wish I wasn’t completely crazy and could remember where I get my inspiration from for the grilling part of this guac, but unfortunately the baby ate my brain while I was pregnant and it still hasn’t grown back yet.  Word on the street […]

Indulge Me

March 21, 2012

Morning everyone So wow, the past few weeks have been CRAZY, right?  I mean, having a kiddo is kind of life-changing (understatement of the century).  As crazy, sleep-deprived, and exciting as the past two weeks have been they’ve been 2 of the best weeks of my entire life.   I’ve learned that there’s no end […]

Pizza Party – A Random Mommy-Brained Post

March 17, 2012

As a new mom I’m kind of leaning towards foods that are easy and delicious – and if you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time I think you probably know that I’m kind of in love with pizza.  Majorly, majorly in love with pizza.   This post isn’t going to have any […]
