I don’t give my kids Jell-O.  I mean what IS Jell-O anyways?  Well, on Thursday Noah was sick and the doctor said his throat hurt really bad so give him soft, smooth things like Jell-O.  So off to the store I went to buy Jell-O.  On Thursday Noah did not like the Jell-O.  He didn’t … Continue reading

We Got Chickens!

I have been wanting chickens for a while now but Nathan was not interested.  I really didn’t know anything about raising chickens but somewhere in my dream land I grow my own produce, get local meat and dairy, have chickens (for eggs, not meat), grind my own wheat, ya know, do it all!  Well, chickens … Continue reading

Disney On Ice

To continue our crazy weekend of wedding fun we changed gears.  Sunday night was about the kids.  Unfortunately Nathan had to head home Sunday afternoon.  I am sad he didn’t get to come with us but my mom, Patti, Kyle, Hadley, Noah, and I all headed out to the American Airlines Center to see Disney … Continue reading

Spring Break: Telluride (Part 2)

The second day was similar to the first.  Nathan and I snowboarded/skied and Hadley went to ski school.  Even though the first day as ski school wasn’t the best day of her life, she was ready to go back.  I was glad.  This day (its Wednesday), Noah went to the nursery at the ski school/mountain … Continue reading

Spring Break 2013:Telluride

Remember when we went to Telluride last August? Well, we loved it so much we thought we would head back over there for spring break to catch a glimpse of the snow and we were hoping to hit the slopes. Our spring break trip did not last long enough (but then again it did because … Continue reading

Adoption Update

Recently I have been getting a lot of questions regarding our adoption journey.  I thought I would give everyone a short update.  If you didn’t know we were even adopting then read this first and then read this.  You will be caught up. I will start in November; heartbroken.  Nathan and I, along with the … Continue reading

Healthy Banana Bran Muffins

Our community group splits up kids and adults two out of the three times we meet in a month.  The kids go to a babysitter and the adults go to a nearby house.  It has worked out great most of the time.  One downfall is that we have to provide a meal for the kids … Continue reading

Mason Creek Farms

Today my MOPS group went to go visit Mason Creek Farms on the outskirts of Fayetteville.  Mason Creek Farms is a pig farm that also produces chicken eggs.  They are one of the two Animal Welfare Approved pig farms in Arkansas.  It is the nicest couple ever, Glenn and Rose that run the farm.  I … Continue reading

What I Ate: Meatloaf

Now I obviously did not plan these meals to be posted when I planned my meals.  I had thought about doing this series of posts for a while and after I grocery shopped I realized this week would be a good week to do it.  I don’t think most people admit to eating meatloaf.  I … Continue reading
