You just never know..

We had a life experience a couple of days ago that opened my eyes in ways I just couldn’t see before. As we sat at dinner with our healthy happy baby boy having a big delicious pizza and a cold beer, smiling and laughing with each other I realized how happy we looked. On our…

Let your husband cook..

Now I know that a lot of men cook and truly enjoy it, but I think all men love to grill. Chris loves to cook, but rarely has the time lately. He loves to grill and I love the grill flavoring, especially when its nice outside and I have a cold beer in my hand.. SO…

Our Garden

You guys….it is 78 degrees outside and I am sitting in my sunroom with the door open, breeze blowing in, Drake just went down for a nap, I smell like sweat and dirt, AND my husband told me to check the freezer top shelf and do you know what?……..I just finished the entire Reeces he…

I cook my husband breakfast every morning….

Now for those women who don’t read the rest of this post I can just see them rolling their eyes and saying in their best Annie on Bridesmaids voice, “Oh you doooooo….” Now I understand that is super annoying, but I will share my secret. My husband thinks I am the greatest wife ever, boy…

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…
