Life is Messy

Life is messy. What did Buffy tell Dawn about life at the end of Season 5? “The hardest thing in this world is to live in it.” My kitchen table is sticky. My entire downstairs is covered in toys, Goldfish, and baby crackers. I care but not enough to pick it up right...

My Favorite Instant Pot Recipes

I can’t tell you how much I love my Instant Pot. Like seriously, I have two!  I toss things in and they come out tasty and beautiful in a fraction of the time. My absolute favorite feature is the sauté button. I don’t need a separate pot to brown my meat or soften my...

Thoughts on Turning 35

My thoughts on turning 35 are pretty mundane.  Just a little bit older, a little bit wiser, and mirroring the time I turned 30 because I'm 8 months pregnant AGAIN.  I'm so done being pregnant.  3.5 kids is going to be plenty.  It's a good thing I upgraded my Costco...

Urban Adventuring

The METRO Gold Line is my new favorite way to get around Los Angeles County.  I love that it stops in Pasadena, immediately north of Chado Tea Room, my new favorite tea shop for scones and loose leaf tea.  It then proceeds towards Downtown LA with a stop in both...

Spring Cleaning Musings

Spring cleaning has never been my favorite activity.  I find it as a necessary evil unless you move every 5 years so you're forced to purge all that old crap.  My cute sweaters are mocking me.  They sit in their bottom drawer which is prime clothing real estate, but I...

Desert Wanderlust

The Los Angeles area alone has received 14.33 inches of rain.  Pretty crazy considering we haven't had double digits of rain since the 2010-2011 season.  You can see the data here.  Jesse has been excited because all this rain translates to desert wanderlust.  Anza...

Celebrate The Woman You Are

Today is International Women's Day.  Today is the day to recognize and pledge our daily support of women everywhere.   Our mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters, teachers, CEO's, small business owners, bartenders, etc.  All the women who have raised us, inspired us to do...

The Low Carb Diet Reigns Supreme

The low carb diet reigns supreme.  I've been back on my 15g of carbs per meal, per snack bandwagon.  Sometimes it's hard, but it just makes life interesting.  Believe me, with this limited carb intake, I came out of two pregnancies about 10lbs lighter than when I...

How to Keep Those Pesky New Year’s Resolutions

Oh, those pesky new year’s resolutions.  The new year usually heralds a chorus of “I’m going to go to the gym!” or “I’m going to eat right!” and then nothing happens except for lost motivation and gyms make more money.  Been there, done that, let’s find way that helps...

Deep Cleansing Breaths
