What.a.weekend! If you thought last weekend was jam-packed (which I did) this weekend was that and more. Our original plan for the weekend a while back was to go camping. My mom had been planning on coming down to watch E (twist her arm) anyway, and we just thought we would have a low key weekend visiting, shopping and watching March Madness since our camping plans fell through. Well, we did do all of that, and much, much more.
Saturday we started with breakfast at Panera and a trip to Lake Meadow Naturals in Ocoee to gather eggs for the week. It's such a quaint little place and we love to take E every once in a while to experience farm life - even if just for a quick trip to the hen house. My mom had never been, and I was so excited to show her around.
As I have said many, many times before; I am all about weeknight shortcuts when it comes to cooking. I love to cook, don't get me wrong, but once in a while I enjoy taking the easy yet still semi-homemade way out.
Hi all and Happy St. Patty's Day! I guess I can blame this post on pregnancy cravings, my love for anything mint, or the fact that I can't drink green beer today; but whatever the case may be, I thought it would be fun to re-post a recipe from 3 years ago in honor of all the Leprechauns out there.
Thanks to all who have commented, called and texted about our big news we revealed on Facebook over the weekend. We are over the moon excited for Baby A part deux and can't wait to watch Everett become a big brother.
Good morning! In case you were just itching for a yummy, moist breakfast bread to whip up this morning I thought I would share my latest creation (adapted from this recipe by Averie Eats) that was a hit at our house. It’s packed full of yumminess – apples, carrots, nuts and dried fruit; and is sweet and chewy. Think trail mix in bread form – speaking of, dark chocolate chips would be perfect in this as well. Hmmmmm…. At any rate, this version is pretty spectacular. Try it out!
After about a month of getting everything set up and squared away, I am happy and honored to report that I officially have my first blog up on the Orlando Moms Blog. Thanks to my friend Elizabeth Warren for recommending me, I am so excited to contribute to this awesome blog along with other amazing women. Enjoy!
I have had many requests to recap and add a little bit of detail to Everett’s 2nd birthday celebration held a few weeks back and I am happy to oblige. So, without further ado, here are some snippets from our day-o-fun (I didn’t get as many pics as usual, it’s hard to be the hostess and photographer!). We actually had E’s birthday party about a week and a half before his actual birthday. Our family from Wisconsin was in town and we were excited to share the day with them. We also decided to have his party mid-afternoon on a Sunday vs. Saturday. I know our Saturdays are usually booked for months in advance and with the great turnout, it seemed that Sunday worked best for most of our guests.
Why do weekends go by so fast? This past weekend absolutely flew and I am already counting the minutes until the next one! This weekend we found ourselves traveling to Merritt Island with Lynn and Tuller for a coed Baby-Q honoring our friends Marze and Travis. They are due in about a month with their first baby boy, Jaxson Cole. The shower was so much fun. There were TONS of good food and drink options as well as a plethora of gifts for the new parents (goodness knows you need them all with your first baby!).
