Dinners this week: 2 new + 1 classic

ThiSince I didn’t manage to get a meal plan together in time for Friday’s blog post, I thought I’d check in this morning to share our dinners so far this week. They’ve actually all been home runs even with two new ones out of three – which usually doesn’t happen 🙂 Monday: Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers…

Resisting the urge to complain

It’s been kind of a long week over here already. In fact, when I was writing my to-do list for today before leaving work yesterday, I wrote “Friday” instead of “Wednesday.” Oops. Nothing majorly has gone wrong, but there’s been a lot of little things adding up, threatening to turn into a storm. But I…

Sick day + last week’s workouts

  I’m checking in this morning feeling a bit discombobulated. Vera’s cold had her cranky yesterday morning and her raspy cough had us concerned. I feel like you can really tell in that photo she was out of it. I kept her home and we went to the doctor. She does not have croup, thank…

A few things from this week: sentence per picture

Hello there. Happy Thursday! Did you enjoy my “week in the life” posts – part 1 and part 2? Today I’m just popping in to catch up on this week. Please chime in with a highlight from your week so far 🙂 We received our family photo from our visit to Mike’s work a few…

Working mom mornings: a week in the life (part 2)

I’m sharing a whole week of mornings on the blog. Part 1 is here! Thursday:  Alarm: 530. I hop in the shower right away – I ended up running Wednesday evening so it wasn’t actually a rest day….as a result, I make Thursday my rest day. I don’t have time to do much more than…

Working mom mornings: a week in the life (part 1)

Every morning is different around here. So when I wrote last week’s day in the life post, I felt a little disingenuous. It was truly a random Tuesday, like I said – there’s no such thing as a typical day or week around here. So I thought I’d share what our 5 mornings looked like last…

Last week’s workouts + next week’s meal plan 6

And, it’s Friday! I hope you had a good week. Things were good over here. I had two after work events, so I missed some of my usual time with the kiddo, but it was good to be out and about. Oh yeah, and Vera had a mild fever Monday and was up much of…

Racing the sunset

Hi! Hope your week is going great so far. Things are good over here. It’s been hot again, which I love, and we’re trying to take advantage of it with outside time in the morning and squeezing it in between dinner and Vera’s early bedtime. Yesterday was kind of a weird day. It started off…

5 meal planning principles

Every week, I share our meal plan for the following week. Sometimes I get asked whether we also stick to the plans exactly. LOL. Many weeks, we’re shifting things around, either within that week or pushing things back to the following week. Why bother meal planning then? I’m not the kind of person who can…

What to do with all those raspberries

As I mentioned yesterday, we spent part of Saturday morning picking raspberries. So now we have a lot of raspberries. 🙂 Plus I learned raspberry picking goes until Halloween, so I hope we’ll be back to pick some more. Vera and I love our raspberries! I started thinking about what I can do with all…
