lunchbox-wish-list-2

lunch boxes they’ll <3.

i’ve always tried to pack healthy school lunches for my kids that cater slightly to each one’s taste (so they actually eat it) but after failing miserably at it last year and as a result spending way too much at the starbuck’s drive-thru on protein packs, i decided that this year lunch packing would be a […]

breakfast club: favorite brekkie cookie

DINNER TONIGHT (salmon tacos) AND TOMORROW TOO (salmon chowder)

happy labor day and last summer hurrah! to celebrate i thought i would share two of my favorite dinner recipes. what i love most about these dishes is that they are simple and seasonal but also add a fresh gourmet twist on everyday tacos and chowder. you also get two meals out of one grilled salmon so […]

POPPY’s (newborn) PICS

so i didn’t really share this with anyone at the time but i had a few minor-ish meltdowns during my pregnancy about having a 5th child. obviously once your pregnant it’s a little late to start worrying about things but there were certain days (probably the hard ones) when my anxiety got the best of […]

hospital-bag-packing-list

in my hospital bag + a checklist.

because most of the hospital checklists i found were circa 1990 and because i love to see what other mamas pack for trips, carry in their diaper bags and (in general) how they make life with kids work, i thought it would be fun to share what was packed in our hospital bag for poppy’s birth. […]

she’s here + a birth story

allow me to introduce you to our newest addition, Penelope – number 5 and final for our rowdy brood. here’s a little peek into her birth story…. based on the picture above you would never guess that her lungs weren’t quite ready to be breathing on their own when she was born (unusual for a […]
