My little girl turned three last week. When did the little baby who fit in the crook of my arm become the active and imaginative child I see before me now? About six months before her birthday, we asked A what kind of party she wanted. It ranged from Princess to pirate to fairy and… Continue reading A Very Tangled Birthday Party
Today, my husband and I harvested two small buckets full of hops. We discovered the vine growing in our backyard last year and this year we figured we would do something with it. After some research and asking twitter (thanks @natures_backpack) we learned that aside from making beer or bread yeast, hops makes a pretty… Continue reading Home-grown tea, anyone?

On my own (many thanks to breastfeeding) I have lost more, but it has been considerably slower. Fat sure… Continue reading My Mommy Fit Challenge
