Let's Go, Let's Go!

  L-E-T-S-G-O! First thing first. that cute headband on Wyn is from Rhyla. I won a giveaway on instagram for a gift code to their shop. They have a lot of cute headbands and hair clips for infants and toddlers. which worked out great for Operation: Be A Better Girl Mom. Wyn LOVES accessories. She turns everything into a headband already, so this was a cool win. See, people really ….

Roasted Cauliflower & Pea Pods with Garlic

I will admit, I am not that great at side dishes. I tend to be a salad person. Or maybe tossing some diced potatoes in tin foil on the grill. I love, love, love vegetables, at least most of them, so I am trying to branch out and make sure to cook up some side dishes in other ways. Summer is a little hot for turning on the oven, but ….

Ipsy Glam Bag July 2014

Mid July is usually a gross time of year around here, but this Summer has been so mild, I don’t mind it at all, even at a gazillion months pregnant. I am looking forward to having this baby and regaining the ability to apply makeup again. See, my belly is now too big to lean over the bathroom counter and see my face up close in a mirror. So no ….

Super Simple Rhubarb Sauce

  Some delicious things are not very pretty. I mean really, most pictures of sauces and baked goods are nothing special without a bunch of staging and garnishes. Maybe someday I will get some cute props and dishes. But, until then,  you can view this ugly rhubarb sauce. Rhubarb sauce is actually pretty awesome. It is lovely on vanilla ice cream, short cakes, and as a flavour addition to pies ….

Avocado Berry Smoothie with Lemon & Spinach

Leafy greens, healthy fats, and a sweet sour balance of berries and lemon? Trust me, it is good. The only way to make it better would be a scoop of protein powder or some Greek yogurt, but hey, this is a vegan smoothie so we won’t go there. This not a very sweet smoothie, so if you like sweet, maybe add some sugar or other fruit. No skin off my ….

Girls Room & Nursery: Before Pictures and Aspirations

A little girl room and nursery. My girls will be 2.5 years apart and room sharing for their entire time in our home, so I figured I would make it a little paradise for them. I will admit, I am not the best girl mom. I am pretty bad at that froufrou stuff. I have barely any hair accessories for my daughter. I almost never shop for clothes for her. ….
