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 […]

DIY Raised Vegetable Garden

DIY Raised Vegetable Garden

Back in April, we made a raised bed out of our old box spring.  We started by ripping off the fabric from the frame. Arabella was digging for worms in the yard. Mission accomplished! John ripped off the top pieces to use for boarding up the sides. We left only the middle piece to divide […]
