Creamy Mushroom & Spinach Pasta

Creamy Mushroom & Spinach Pasta

It’s been a while since I posted.  We have moved from the DC area down to Jacksonville, Fl where we both grew up.  It’s been a whirlwind of moving, staying with my parents and moving again.  We are so glad to be settling into our new home, and this was our first family meal in […]

Slow Cooker Red Curry with Turkey Meatballs

Slow Cooker Red Curry with Turkey Meatballs

This recipe is definitely for the spice lovers!  I give it a rating of at least 4 peppers like the Thai restaurants use.  I am a red curry fan.  I almost always order the red curry and always something curry at a Thai restaurant.  When I was pregnant with Camden, my girlfriends took me out […]

Weekly Recap – August 11, 2014

I didn’t get a lot of pictures of us doing stuff this week, but we still did a lot of bug stuff and learning.  I made this Hermie lap book from 1+1+1=1.  They both had fun looking at it. Arabella likes to quiz Camden on his colors and was trying to teach him numbers.  She […]

Hiding Technology in Your Home

Hiding Technology in Your Home

One thing that I hate to see in my house is cords and cables.  I know I need them for charging my phone, watching TV and playing music, but I like to pretend they are not there.  That’s why I like to decorate around them.  See the little box under the books? Here’s another little […]

Weekly Recap – July/August – Bug Theme

Weekly Recap – July/August – Bug Theme

The Weekly Recaps have been MIA on the blog lately.  We’ve had a lot going on in the past few weeks.  We found out we are finally moving back to the Jacksonville, Florida area with a job transfer for John, we made an unexpected trip to Florida for my grandmother’s funeral and all came down […]

Peachy Sweet Tea Mint Julep

Peachy Sweet Tea Mint Julep

This is a fun grown-up drink I made with some leftover peaches, bourbon I had from brining our turkey at Thanksgiving and sweet tea I made for lunch one day.  It’s tastes like summer time in the South.  I can imagine drinking this in a rocking chair on a front porch while the sun in going down. […]

Master Bedroom Budget Makeover

Master Bedroom Budget Makeover

I’ve been working on redoing our master bedroom since before Camden was born.  I’ve posted a few posts hinting at it over the years.  I thought I should photograph and post it before we move in September.  I had frames on the wall for months before getting pictures in them, and a week later we […]

Southern Sweet Tea

Southern Sweet Tea

Sweet tea is something my parents didn’t make when I was growing up even though we lived in the south.  My dad’s parents were northern transplants, and they all drank unsweet tea.  The first time I had sweet tea I was at our neighbors house when I was about 12 years old, and it was […]

Peach, Basil & Goat Cheese Quinoa Salad

Peach, Basil & Goat Cheese Quinoa Salad

Summer is in full swing, and I got the bug to make a batch of summery food this week.  It all culminated into one productive morning with a lot of over ripe peaches that were left in our fridge when we had to unexpectedly make another trip to Florida two weeks ago for my grandmother’s funeral. […]

Easy Summer Rolls

Easy Summer Rolls

I never knew how easy summer rolls are to make.  I also wasn’t sure if I would like them since they are cold, so I was totally caught off guard by how much I looooved them!  My friend Gloria Lee taught us how to make these.  In our house, she is referred to by Arabella […]
