Quick Snack – Larbar vs Quest Bar

Snacks… I am not a dietician, nutritionist, doctor… no certifications or credentials to tell you what is healthy and what is not, I am simply telling you what works for my family! Thank you to the 5 people (mom & dad, husband, in laws) that follow my blog and listen to me rant……… 😉 Love…

Instant Pot Carnitas – Nom Nom Paleo

So I really do try and cook completely paleo at home. Drake doesn’t eat healthy, but we are working on getting him back on track. That is a long exhausting story. lol he is still wayy too busy to eat so getting anything in him feels like a win in my book. Chris and I…

Weeknight Roast Chicken w/Veggies

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! Chris actually didn’t have to work Saturday so that was amazing! We had a lot of family time and awesome Sunday service at our new church! (SoCo – We found our place!!) Minus the fact that it didn’t get above 45 degrees, it was a good…

Paleo Cheeseburger Casserole w/Nacho Cheese

Good Morning friends! Hope this finds you somewhere warm, I am sitting on my sunporch with the heater cranked on high because it is currently 30 degrees in our little corner of the woods. I went out late last night and covered up all of my sweet little babies and fingers crossed they dont shrivel…

Sprengel’s Deformity – Our trip to Shriner’s Portland, OR

Hellooooo! I know that a lot of people follow Drake and his medical-unicorn-ness so I wanted to give an update. When Drake was 7 months old, he was diagnosed with Scimitar Syndrome – PAPVR – a rare congenital heart defect that is paired with a hypoplasic right lung. I will not get into the details….

Drake is 3!!!

Ya’ll…. I am so busy but the thing is, I’m not sure what I have been busy with? other than Drake of course who never stops. He turned 3!!! I can’t believe it. The birthday party was of course Minion themed. He helped me design invitations and pick out all of the decorations. The kid…

Chicken Wings and Superbowl Things!

Confession…. I am OBSESSED with Buffalo anything. It drives my husband insane. I used to not give wings or buffalo a second glance, but since getting pregnant with my now almost 3 year old (insert hysteric sob here) I can drink buffalo sauce and bleu cheese by the bowl full. The hotter the better. Weird….

Cabin Fever…. Last minute meal

Don’t get me wrong, I love cold weather, truly!! But this year with the flu taking over and 3053756 different stomach bugs, strep and the billion other sicknesses we are staying home! I just saw yesterday that the mumps are in Norman, OK! (Keeping politics out, I will just say…my child is vaccinated!) Usually we…

BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza

So pillow talk this week my husband tells me, “I cannot believe you’re not in birthday freak out mode since its less than a month away”.. Umm I have a month and a half…no sweetheart you have a month. WHAT!? My life is now nothing but Minions. Fart Guns. Freeze Rays.. My son tries to…

Whole 30 – Change your life – Loaded Sweet Potato Fries!

  Holy Moly! We have a new favorite. As simple as this recipe is I cannot believe we didnt come up with it or at least try it earlier!! This one I changed quite a bit and made my own, but the idea came from 40 Aprons. Here is the link to the original. http://40aprons.com/whole30-loaded-sweet-potato-fries/ Sometimes…

Whole 30 Potato Soup

I swear I run on coffee and Amazon prime. Seriously.. I try to order 1 thing and order 30! So during my whole 30 attempt lately I decided to cut out coffee creamer. I have never in my life not used creamer and to be honest I thought my husband was gross for drinking coffee…

Richardson Fajita Tacos

Ok y’all these are a Richardson original. I like to think these are perfection! (if you disagree…I don’t care. They are perfect!) We do not do taco Tuesday, but we probably should. I like trying new things too often BUT these are definitely a staple in our house.. even my toddler will eat them, well…
