What’s On My Nightstand: Spring 2015 Edition

What’s On My Nightstand: Spring 2015 Edition

Even though the temps have been in the 90s these past few days (yuck!), it’s still technically spring here in Texas.  I couldn’t let another season slip by before letting you know what’s on my nightstand. (Check out SUMMER, FALL and WINTER for more reading suggestions.) I still don’t get to read like I used to (for hours on end) … Continue reading

What’s On My Nightstand: Winter 2015 Edition

What’s On My Nightstand: Winter 2015 Edition

I figure there’s still time to get my reading list in since old man winter visited us last week.  There hasn’t been much to complain about over the past few months here in Dallas (sorry, New England!), but since we’ve had several white days, I thought it best to get this in while it still feels cold.  (Check out my summer and … Continue reading

Blogiversary I: Get Ready For This!

Can you believe it’s been a whole year since I started this bad boy?  Yeah, me neither.  I have to say it’s been a wild ride with lots of learning along the way.  I’m happy that this blog is going where it’s going, but I definitely have plans to make it better.

Baby-Led Weaning: Self-Feeding

Baby-Led Weaning: Self-Feeding

Picture it with me…baby girl (or boy) sits down to a meal, feeds herself a bowl of scrumptious salmon chowder (you lovingly prepared) with a spoon, enjoys every bit of it, then asks for more, all the while none of it ends up on the floor. You think you’re dreaming, right? Then you open you … Continue reading

Cookbook Challenge Week 4: Practical Paleo

Happy November everyone!  I will be back later to post on our Halloween experience or lack there of… Let’s hear it for week 4 of my self-imposed cookbook challenge (see the previous weeks here, here, and here)!  Last week’s cookbook was a VERY informative one to say the least.  If you are even remotely considering the Paleo diet lifestyle and don’t know what … Continue reading
