Homemade Coconut Ice Cream

Today has been the best day.  I mean WONDERFUL.  Which is good, because yesterday was a little dramatic.  Dramatic because, well, I’m nursing a baby who happens to be teething.  You do the math. That is all I’m going to say about that. But today was great.  Baby slept late, I woke up feeling rested, […]

Are you crunchy or soggy?

I’m becoming a very “crunchy” person. I used to be quite soggy.  I was all about medicine, processed food, disposable things, and all things convenient.  My favorite quote was “Everything in moderation” when in reality there wasn’t really any moderation at all.

Poppyseed is 11 Months Old

We are less than 1 month away from Poppyseed’s first birthday.  I don’t know if I’m thrilled or depressed about this. I fall more and more in love with my kid every day.  I seriously did not know that I could feel this strongly about another person, aside only from her father of course.  I […]

Baptism, Horses and Daylight Savings

Today began in a frenzy. Last night I went to bed feeling very excited for this morning.  Poppyseed was to be baptized at 8:30am, and we have various family members driving in from all directions for the occasion.  We decided to have everyone over after church, so Oatmeal and I had spent the day cleaning […]

Happy Paleo-versary to Us!

Oatmeal, Poppyseed and I are headed to Ruston to visit my family. And guess what? It’s March 1. Two years ago today we were actually driving home from Ruston, reading our first book about the paleo/primal diet together. We said, “The hell with Whataburger, let’s eat real food for a while.” Two years later, this […]
