griffey is two (cool)

to the (coolest) birthday boy, i’ve been a mom long enough to know that these toddler days fly by, but this time around it seems more like lightning speed. (here come the waterworks!) a few things i (especially) adore about you at 2… you are the only one with your daddies eyes and every time you […]

craft tray no. 2 – rain makers

the other morning, while putting on my makeup, i turned around to find all 4 of my kids huddled around, asking me questions, getting into my drawers, knocking things over and hanging on my legs. now, to do this story justice i also have to add that my bathroom is the size of a small […]

zucchini bread pancakes

the kids might make all kinds of faces (and noises) when they see you add shredded zucchini to perfectly good pancake batter, but they will be kissing the cook after the first bite! the recipe above (from the monthly spread) calls for gluten free pancake mix, but you can use whatever brand you like or […]

delicious {corn} fritters

saved by the trench (coat)

i’m always on the hunt for pieces i can add to my wardrobe that are simple and versatile, but that also make me look (& feel) put together without actually requiring me to be put together. i mean, (side note) i have a hard enough time getting myself ready and out the door on time […]

PERSONAL BAKED PASTA RECIPE

if you appreciate a good dinner idea that everyone will love, then you’re in for a treat today! my kids call this their favorite and i call it genius. mostly because it’s as easy (if not more so) than throwing together spaghetti and red sauce, but the presentation is so fun and lovely that you’ll rake […]

everyone <3's mexican lasagna

i wish i could say that having my brood makes me an expert at picky eaters… but not so much.  every time i think i have it figured out, the next one is picky in a totally different way.  for instance, my oldest, ozzie required dippy to eat during his toddler years.  while my youngest, griffey […]

it’s getting hairy.

yesterday was a long day, with a capital “L”.  mostly because i couldn’t stop crying (no, i’m not preggers, mom), but i also found myself doing a lot of soul searching. luckily it ended with a good convo with a close friend (a few answers) and lots of new hairstyle diy’s pinned to our pinterest […]
