I had a couple questions about Henry’s play table, so I thought I’d post a brief “tutorial” on how we took it from completely ugly to super cute. I use the word “tutorial” very loosely as this was the easiest (and cheapest!) project ever. This would make for a cheap, easy and fun Christm

I’m not sure how it happened this quickly, but apparently I have a two-year old. I’ve been reminiscing a lot lately about the day he was born and the two years we’ve spent together as a family of three. I hate the gushy “I LOVE BEING A MOM!!!!!” declarations you see on Facebook and the […

…and I love Splendid. I was tired last Wednesday. So tired that even though I had planned to go to the Splendid Grand Opening Party, I put on my pajamas instead. But, then I started thinking about how cute and comfortable their clothes are and how great it was that I could get 20% off […]

For the most part, preschool has been a wonderful experience for our little guy. His language has exploded and he has the best time there. We see snippets of his day through pictures and we really couldn’t be happier with the school we chose. It’s a magical little place and we love it. What’s not […]

OH HEY. Guess what? Preschool germs are brutal, that’s what. In the month that Henry has been at school he’s had both Roseola and Hand, Food and Mouth. What next, universe? Other than the ridiculous germs, preschool has been amazing. Henry’s language has exploded and he has such a good time there. I see pi

Since we last spoke, there have been some big changes in our world. We bought a new house, moved, sold our old one, (in that order, because we really like to fly by the seat of our pants over here), took a kid-free trip to Napa, sent Henry to school and I went back to […]

Nordstrom Rack provided me with a gift card to shop the new Kids’ Section at their Downtown Portland store, but thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.   I think it’s well documented around here that I LOVE me some Nordstrom. I often shop at Nordstrom Rack for great deals on shoes (they carry a […]

At 20-months-old, Henry… Has had 6 haircuts. Is working on his canines Has been to the dentist twice. Has about 50 words and is starting to put together 2-3 word sentences. Loves vehicles of any kind. Does not care for sweets AT ALL. Says “Daddy?” when he hears the front door open. Hates slowing down […]

Well, that was quite the little break. We’re here and we’re well but we’re busy. Here’s what’s been going on… I traveled to South Carolina for a much needed girls weekend. The weather was awful, so of course I felt right at home. We spent almost an entire day in our pajamas just chatting

I received a letter from the surgeon that removed the endometrioma from my body back in August 2008 to let me know that she is retiring. It’s really not something I think about that often anymore, but way before I was married (in fact, Bill and I had just started dating) I went through some [...]

Hello! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. We finally got some news on B’s knee on Wednesday and I’m happy to hear that it’s not as serious as we had originally thought, though he will require some surgery at the beginning of May. Until then, he has physical therapy to get some of his strength [...]

(Listen, I know that Easter was a week ago and we’ve all moved on, but I have had a WEEK and this is really the first chance I’ve had to sit by myself and type something out. Humor me, please?) Easter Weekend was a bit different than I had imagined, but we still had a [...]

About once a week I think “I don’t think I could love Henry’s current stage any more.” And, then he goes ahead and grows into a completely new stage and I fall in love again. Toddlers man, they are exhausting but they are fantastic. Here’s what’s new with my little guy… We were listening to [...]

As part of my role as a Nintendo Brand Enthusiast, I was thrilled to be able to host a party a couple of weeks ago for my friends to check out the new Wii U system. Two fun gals, Jessica and Thu-Anh showed up with some food and prizes on a rainy Sunday afternoon and [...]

Hello! Welcome to another installment of “I Am Not a Food Photographer!” Here’s what I’ve been eating… Buffalo Chicken French Breads   – My friend Crist describes this as a “Duh Dinner” and it totally is. Delicious but super easy. If you’re not into buffalo chicken, yo

Hello! Well, that was an unintentional break. Henry came down with another little cold last week (babies are GERMY) and after the fourth day of a generally crabby little guy, I took him to the doctor and found out that he had his first ear infection. He’s done with his antibiotics and seems to be [...]

This is a paid review for BlogHer Book Club but the opinions expressed are my own. We all know and love Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess, right? Jenny’s book, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, came out in paperback this week and while I read it on my Kindle over the holidays I jumped at the chance to [...]

We had a rough day yesterday. Bill is out of town and Henry woke up at 5:45. Not a huge deal as he’s typically an early riser, but I knew that it would make for a longer day. He’s been going down for his nap at 11, but he was acting pretty crabby around 10:30 [...]

Henry is 15-months old now and is definitely less content to stay home during the week. We’re pretty much transitioned to one nap and we’ve been trying our best to stay very busy in the mornings and power through the mid-morning eye-rubs. Last week, we met up with a friend and her little boy at [...]

I saw this Portlandia clip this morning and I had to chuckle. What if instead of the tons of paperwork and pamphlets they give you when you go home from the hospital with your baby, they just gave you one that said, “TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS.” It might just make for a calmer, more confident Mama.

This is a paid review for BlogHer Book Club, however opinions are my own. Upon first glance, I didn’t think I’d like A Good American. You see, it’s a historical novel, and while I am interested in history, I’ve just never been that interested in historical novels. But, I’m glad I gave it a seco

Hiiiii. I hope you had a great weekend, whether it was a long one or just one of regular length.  We had a long weekend and it was just delightful. There was lots of time for productivity but also lots of time for relaxing which is the best kind of weekend. Over the summer, we [...]

Last weekend, during the Saturday morning news, there was a commercial for the Chinese New Year celebrations at the Lan Su Chinese Garden in Portland. When the commercial came on, Henry stopped what he was doing and walked over to look up at the TV. He waved his arms around and got pretty fired up [...]

Early Monday morning, I nursed Henry for the last time. I had kind of hoped that our last nursing session would be “planned” so that I could…I don’t know savor it? But, my body had other plans and here we are. I’m extremely proud that we made it almost 15 months, but I’m honestly very [..

Greetings from our Germy Home! All three of us have had the stomach bug at different times over the past couple weeks and it was the worst. We’re all feeling better and will hopefully stay that way. My to-do list has been majorly neglected as of late.  I’m hoping to get some things marked off [...]

This is a paid review for BlogHer Book Club but the opinions expressed are my own. Oh, I am excited by this book club selection. Though I am a big fan of this author, I’ve not read anything by her in quite a while. This book was a perfect way to jump back into her work. Here [...]

And, suddenly I’m the mother of a toddler. While I’m so nostalgic about the days when I could cuddle him for hours on end, this stage is really so much fun. He’s a person with preferences and ideas which is just amazing. It is truly a gift to be this little boy’s mother and get [...]

Happy Tuesday! Hoping you enjoyed the long weekend (assuming you had a long weekend).  I didn’t accomplish a whole lot this weekend as I felt a little under the weather on Sunday and Monday, but I got a lot of rest.  Looking to make your child’s day? Head to IKEA and pick up one of [...]

As I mentioned in my list of goals for 2013, I want to try one new recipe a week. Well, I am proud to say that I am a huge overachiever because I have tried five new recipes since the beginning of the year. (Do you find it at all interesting that I’m overachieving on [...]
