Three Weeks and Hanging On By A Thread

But, it is one of those super strong threads for sewing carpet and stuff, so it is OK. I put that outfit on her at two weeks for the picture and had to take it off right away because it was way too small and the headband was squeezing her poor head. So, I imagine transitioning from two kids to three kids would be easier if we hadn’t started preschool ….

See, that list is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the mountain of responsibilities and changes going on in our household right now.

Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Do you like fruit in your salad? I normally don’t like it. Apples in chicken salad, raisins in tuna, strawberries in spinach is all just wrong in my mind. I find it incredibly irritating to go to a restaurant and they charge $19 for a plate of lettuce with flour blackberries on it. Craziness, I tell you. However, I do get why people do it. Sweet and savory together can ….
