Poppyseed is 2 years old!

Today our little girl turned 2.  I may or may not have cried about this.  Once.  Twice.  Several times. Starting with last night, when this happened. Last night I realized I just needed to pull the trigger and put her to sleep in her big girl bed.  We decided to move her into the guest […]

24 weeks along with Middle

As you can see, I’ve sort of stopped doing weekly updates in favor of doing them every other week.  Just seems to be more logical since things don’t really change on a week-by-week basis. And if they do, they go unnoticed since I already have one kid.  #secondkidproblems Baby is the size of an: Ear […]

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 […]

I’m not ready.

This weekend went by way, way too fast.  On Friday Oatmeal vowed to take a vacation day, which turned into him working “just a few hours in the morning” which turned into “working until lunch” which turned into “I’ll be home at 4:30pm.”  I couldn’t help but be a little bit irked (I know, I […]

22 Weeks Prego with Middle… or is it 32?

So, the truth is that I’m 22 weeks pregnant but feeling much, much, MUCH more pregnant than that. Baby is the size of a: Spaghetti squash?  Or is it a papaya?  All of these little baby websites say different pieces of produce each week, and honestly, I don’t know where they get it! How I’m […]

Living for the Weekends

I don’t normally feel as if I live for the weekends, because I have a pretty sweet little gig over here with Poppyseed and Oatmeal.  But this week, whew, for some reason it was just a little bitty bit of a doozy. The husband travels for work quite a bit.  It works out to be […]

Raising a paleo tot… so far, so good.

I have been wanting to blog about our own experience with feeding a kiddo “real” food for so long now.  It has been a really fun experience for me to have my own little tot to feed.  I love to watch her grow and eat new foods.  I’ve recently become friends with a whole group […]
