In light of stroller recalls, I think this post is needed. I love my stroller – there, I said it. I’ve loved all 4 strollers that I’ve owned in just over a year since having Sophia, but this particular one is hands-down my favorite. One thing people need to understand is that just because it’s … Continue reading Graco Modes Click Connect Stroller.
First and foremost, how about a cute gummy baby picture from July? I love this picture, and it makes me want another baby. Not really, but still. I CAN’T HANDLE THE CUTENESS! And now on to the actual purpose for this post… What makes my food shopping trip exciting? Seeing a bag of 3lb golden … Continue reading A Little Monday Purée.
So our Friday started off with 103.3 fever from Miss Sophia 😦 She was pretty miserable and sleepy through the day on Thursday, so I called the doctor. They were completely booked, but they offered to double-book our doctor at a 4:30pm time slot. Thank goodness we took it – poor baby had a bulging … Continue reading Sick Baby, Food Coma and Harness Buddy?
So I originally came across this recipe when I was searching for a good pot sticker recipe. Pot stickers from scratch, by the way, take FOREVER to make, fill and cook.

I was starving – the pre-made sauce … Continue reading General Tao’s Chicken on Hump Day?
This will be my first of many home decor posts. I never liked doing these types of posts before because we always rented, and nothing I decorated was ever permanent for more than 8 months. Now that we’ve moved into a four bedroom, four bathroom villa-style house, I’ve been in decorating mode more than ever … Continue reading Home Decor: Bathrooms
Saying that I was a makeup hoarder/collector/enthusiast before I had Sophia is quite frankly an understatement. I had drawers and drawers of makeup. I always had the newest collections of makeup that was released, especially in the drugstores. I had (and still have) expensive makeup brushes that I saved up my waitressing tips for to … Continue reading Mommy Must-Haves: Makeup.
Having a one year old now, (holy crap) I’ve been watching her play lately. She’s become very interested in certain things, and is developing favorites! That being said, if I had to buy for a 1st birthday party, and I didn’t have a one year old, I’d have no clue what to buy. It’s that … Continue reading Gifts for a 1st Birthday.
I’ve made new friends and lost old ones. I was thrown into the wild, crazy, incredible world of being a stay at home mom. Jay and I bought a house, and we got married. It was a pretty big year for milestones if you ask me. But besides the big things, there were some key … Continue reading What 2013 Taught Me to Strive for in 2014.
