From Dirt To Cake

IMG_7435

Yesterday, the rain actually held off for most of the day which was nice. We got a lot of gardening done and hit up the nursery for some flowers. I bought some Impatiens, Geraniums, and Bellflowers to plant in the front garden. Before this, mom and I did a lot of weeding and prepped the […]

There’s nothing more entertaining than a grown man wearing a pair of Crocs, a coordinating Mastercraft tool belt, while using power tools. He’s a keeper, for sure. :) heh We’ve been plugging away at the deck each night this week. By the time I pick up Eric from the train station and we have dinner […]

Refreshing Cucumber Salad with Creamy Mint Dressing

IMG_6818

Happy June 1st! Lately, my meals have been all about the H20. It’s easy to get dehydrated without knowing it, but I have to be especially mindful of my water intake now that I’m taking the hot yoga classes, sweating out water I didn’t even know was there. One way that I sneak in a […]

Vegetable and Edamame Pasta with Basil Cream Sauce

IMG_6717

Yesterday morning, I spotted a pack of squirrels throwing a Sunday brunch around my compost bin. The nerve! One of the squirrels was eating an apple core and another was feasting on a piece of burnt toast! Those crazy little buggers. It appears that the animals in our backyard do not want my compost waste […]

[Image source] I will never forget the day that I was interviewing for a summer position at a local YMCA. The two girls who were interviewing me were ‘camp leaders’, maybe a few years older than I was. I don’t know why, but I instantly got a bad vibe from them; they were harshly looking […]

A Perfect Day

IMG_6137

If you asked me what a perfect day would look like, yesterday was certainly it. My day started off with a 3 mile run followed by some core work, push-ups, and at-home yoga. I didn’t have much time, but I cranked out this well-rounded workout in 40 minutes. After showering and breakfast, Eric and I […]

Bidding Farewell To My 27th Year

Last night’s Birthday bash was a good time! I was a bit slow moving when I got up this morning, but it was nothing a little juice, water, hot yoga, and Union Square Café Bar Nuts couldn’t fix… Eric asked me to make the famous Union Square Café Bar Nuts -a double batch! Everyone always […]

Eric, Steve, Dan, Shayne, and Steve worked on the deck this weekend and they got so much accomplished! It almost looks like a deck now. :) The weather was what the boys called, ‘Deck Building Weather’. Sunny and just warm enough to be comfortable. The workstation Eric set up…heh View from other end: This is […]

A Mother Is…

IMG (3)

A Mother is…selfless in every way. A Mother is someone who lets you cry in her arms after your boyfriend dumps you and tells you that you don’t need a boy to be fabulous. You already are. A Mother is someone who gets up early to make your lunch for school and sneaks in a […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Breakfast Cereal

IMG_0280

Check out what arrived this week… 2.5 cubic yards of triple mix soil for the veggie garden. :) Thrilling, I know. After weeks of looking at different types of soils, I went with a triple mix from Van Beek’s. It’s made from composted manure, black loam, and sandy topsoil. I couldn’t find ‘certified’ organic anywhere, […]
