Celebrating Poppyseed Style!

This weekend was one of the most fun and exhausting weekends of this year! Let’s start with Friday morning.  I met 5 other moms at our gym and carpooled down to Yonder Way Farm.  This is the farm that I have ordered from for years, and I have to say that I just love all […]

Eggsactly nothing.

It’s Saturday night at 7:17pm, and I put my toddler to bed at 6:50pm. I win. Well, I may not have won yet.  At 7:15pm, she called out what I hope is her fifth and final “Mommy…” from her crib.  Sometimes when I put her to bed early, she calls for me a few times […]

How (and why) to buy your next steak from a FARM!

Hi there!  Today I wanted to pass along some (hopefully) helpful information to any readers/friends out there who have contemplated buying some meat in bulk, but just aren’t sure how or why to go about getting started. When we went paleo in March of 2011, we went from eating animal products at most meals to […]

Lola Got Fixed

Happy Spring Break, everyone!  For those of you in a stage of life that actually get to enjoy it, at least.  😉 This week has been a totally normal week for my family.  Oatmeal is working his tail off, and Poppyseed and I are just doing the usual.  Running errands, going to playgrounds and parks, […]

Lola Tries a Paleo Challenge… While Pregnant.

I finally feel like I can blog about this paleo challenge!  I’m excited to be 2.5 weeks deep into this program.  I attempted my very first paleo 30 day challenge 3 years ago, and let me just say… it did NOT go well.  Little did I know that I was pregnant, and soon the morning/all […]

11 Weeks!

A quick update on our little bun in the oven… On Friday I was 11 weeks pregnant, give or take.  We still don’t have a set-in-stone due date, but I think it’s roughly August 8.  After going a week overdue with Poppyseed, the term “due date” is fairly meaningless to me anyway… Baby is the […]

The 7 Experiment – Possessions

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” […]

Lola maintains her modesty. Barely.

This post is going to be gross.  I’m just warning you now. I honestly can’t believe I’m about to share this story, but I’ve been under fire by a friend of mine to please share this with the world.  The reason this story is coming out now is because I just potty trained my toddler, […]

A possible comeback.

I hope that tonight is the first of some regular blog posts.  I’ve been trying very hard to get to bed early, and since I usually only blog at night that has meant that it’s gone out the window.  There are plenty of times where I will begin a blog during Poppyseed’s naptime, but I […]

Didn’t see this coming…

The past several days have been a blur, but here are the important parts. Poppyseed has pneumonia. This is the first time that she has gotten sick, and wow did she sure start out with a bang.  I was just telling my friend Sara last week, “She is just the healthiest little kid, and I […]
