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…

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…

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…

Beautiful Woman – My Mammaw Sandra

Just when we thought everything was slowing down a little I got a phone call from my mom telling me that my Mammaw Sandra was close to the end. This woman is the absolute strongest woman I have ever seen/known/met. She has had a very tough life and made the most out of every hand…

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Hi All! Hope you are all staying warm wherever you are! Our heat is back on and the high today is around 25! It is like a heatwave! We live in a retirement community so everyone’s yard is perfect and ours is so trampled. Drake and Deuce (our cowdog reject) absolutely love the snow. I…
