You’re It!

Thanks to Holly for tagging me in this fun little bloggie-get-to-know-you game. Well, not really a game, but nonetheless… Four TV Shows I Watch The Office (I think I have 17 re-runs on my DVR right now) Modern Family Iron Chef America 24 (about five years late, but all the seasons are on instant Netflix … Continue reading

They showed up anyway!

I had plans to have some friends over for dinner tonight. But we got slammed with a snowstorm, and friends called to say they couldn’t make it through the ice and snow (which was completely understandable, seeing as I am the wussiest snow driver that ever lived). I was left with a jumbo pot of … Continue reading

Day Trip

I took a little day trip to Colorado Springs to see my best friend and my family today. Before I left, I recreated the color of the gorgeous sunrise this morning in the form of juice. One apple, one carrot, one lemon, and a handful of cranberries – it was tart and delicious. Alongside that … Continue reading

Juice and Leftovers

One of my Christmas gifts this year was a juicer! Something I have wanted since I became a fruitarian have been pregnant. I crave juice all the time, so it is wonderful to be able to make it myself. This morning’s mix was one pear, one apple, and a couple of handfuls of carrots and … Continue reading

Jelly Belly

Thank you all so much for your congratulations! If you remember, I didn’t want to know the sex of our baby, and Meeker did. I knew it meant a lot to him, so for Christmas, I wrapped up the “sealed envelope” that the doctor had given us at my last ultrasound, and put it under … Continue reading


I thought I would have time to be lazy this week, but between my birthday and Christmas celebrations I haven’t been home in 3 days. (I’m not complaining.) I thought that being pregnant during the holidays would mean dining on mounds of green bean casserole and pie, but all I’ve wanted for the past few … Continue reading

Christmas Eve Eve

Scenes from my day… The grapefruit craving is still raging. I had a Christmas wrapping and Psych watching marathon. (Have you seen Psych? It’s fantastic) And we’re still using wrapping paper from two years ago… Then I ran errands and stopped by Whole Foods for some hot bar action. Things got a little squished in … Continue reading


Today is my 26th birthday! Typically, I don’t like my birthday – it’s a chaotic time of year, I don’t like getting presents (makes me anxious), and I sometimes start dwelling on all the things I haven’t yet accomplished. But today, I woke up (after a mere 4 hours of sleep) reflecting on the last … Continue reading

Sonic Recovery Dinner

I spent the day craving fruits and veggies…it was delicious. For dinner tonight, I planned ahead. When I get too hungry, I can’t think clearly/rationally, and I end up crying and driving to Sonic. This evening, while taking a long walk with the Punkster, I dreamed up a scrumptious warm vegan lentil salad for dinner. … Continue reading

Fruit to the rescue!

You guys are too nice. I woke up feeling a little guilty about my Debbie Downer of a post last night – but it turns out you all were nothing but encouraging. Thanks for indulging my whiny attitude. Thankfully, I woke up with a craving for fruit! A craving for anything is so welcome at … Continue reading
