Tuesday Things

1. Have you had this frozen yogurt? It’s wonderful. It’s kind of tart and tangy and one-hundred-percent summery. Go get some.   2. Meeker did some magic on this website and got me switched over to bluehost – which means the commenting debacle should be all fixed! If you weren’t able to comment for the … Continue reading

Breakfast Bites

Breakfast Bites

So. We’re back home. We were house-sitting last week,  and now I feel like I must put a petition into my husband to build me a pool, putting green, big-huge-deck, and basketball court in our backyard. (Actually he’s already working on the deck assignment. He’s pretty good to me.) But what I’ll miss as much … Continue reading

Summer Love

Summer Love

In case you are ever in doubt of my obsession with summer…I’ll provide you with some pictures. There’s been swimming. There’s been grilling. Corn on the cob. Nightime golf. The discovery of a wasps nest and a first sting for Adrienne (she braved it like a champ). Blueberries and watermelon. Naked babies, and lots of … Continue reading

Toddler Smoothie

Toddler Smoothie

It’s official. My tiny, new-born baby girl has turned into toddler. Gone are the days of my six-month-old chub-monster who ate everything I set in front of her because she didn’t know any better. She knows better now, and she’ll tell you about it. Alllll about it. Luckily, she’s still a great eater. She will … Continue reading

Spanish Pearled Couscous

Spanish Pearled Couscous

True story. I have seven full bags of this whole wheat pearled couscous stuff in my cabinet. SEVEN. Consider this your warning. This is only recipe number TWO – which means I’ve used a whopping two cups of it…total. There are three cups in each bag, so…you do the math. Alright, I did the math. … Continue reading

1. I don’t like air conditioning, it makes me cold during the summer which – as far as I’m concerned – is the opposite of what summer is all about. The exception to this is when I’m in the car on a particularly hot day…I like to have the windows down AND the air conditioning … Continue reading

Peanut Butter Whip Cream

Peanut Butter Whip Cream

How good is whip cream? I’m not talking about cool whip or the spray in your mouth reddi-wip . (Although if I’m being honest, I’m not refined enough to snub either of those things. I can take down a lot of airy whip cream from a tub and love every second of it.) However, there … Continue reading

Edible Visit

Edible Visit

Guess who Adrienne and I visited yesterday?? I’ll give you some hints. This is one of her sweet doggies (looking forlorn because her mama wouldn’t allow her to give A any more kisses on the mouth)…   All of her incredible photos are taken on this (deceivingly small) scrap of countertop… (I swear my photos … Continue reading

Homemade Playdough

Homemade Playdough

  One of my most vivid memories of my mama is her standing at the stove making playdough. I know I’ve told you guys before, but she taught preschool for more than 20 years, and she used to make playdough for every single student and bring it to his or her house during the summertime. … Continue reading

Cucumber and Orange Salad

Cucumber and Orange Salad

Okay, continuing on with this I Love Summer Theme (for the next 365 days, puhleeeeeze) – I’m going to make you look at pictures of bright cheery things. Like….cucumber peels? Okay, nevermind. But seriously, how refreshing are cucumbers? If you could bite a piece of summertime, I think it would taste like a cucumber mixed … Continue reading
