Nonessential Kitchen Essentials

Nonessential Kitchen Essentials

  A few months ago I read an article on The Kitchn about the wedding registry gifts that really get used and those that don’t. I started thinking about my own registry and the things that are still in our cupboards (I love my Mikasa Italian Countryside dinnerware so much!), and I realized that with the exception of a few items, most of my kitchen essentials are things I’ve picked up along the way. And […]

Two Month Update – 2.27.2016

Two Month Update – 2.27.2016

Well if time flew quickly with my second baby, it is going at warp speed with my third. Make it stop, make it stop!! But every day I am more and more in love with this sweet babe. Cara is a joy and I’m so happy she’s part of our family. Sleep – Cara is a great little sleeper most of the time. We did go through a bit of a rough patch the first […]

Graphic Novel Reviewlettes

Graphic Novel Reviewlettes

Well, Comics February is almost to an end–we have a bonus day this year with leap day and I might try to squeeze in one more read. I always love this month and this month was an especially good one with some great comics. I tried to keep my thoughts on each as brief as possible, but since that was impossible I’m splitting up this post into two. Y’all keep me on track to actually […]

Newborning Now and Then

Newborning Now and Then

The saying goes that the third time’s a charm, right? Since the birth of my third daughter, I’ve had several people comment that I should be a pro at this thing I call Newborning. Ha! Does anyone feel like a pro at Newborning? But for every google search I’ve made in the past eight weeks (OMG eight weeks!!), and there have been a ton, I feel like I’ve learned a few things over the past […]

Combating the Blogging Blues

Combating the Blogging Blues

If you’re just jumping in for the week, this week is Book Blogger Appreciation Week.

And of course, shower each other with love and appreciation.” The gals at The Estella Society are hosting it this year. I’ve decided to combine the last two days of BBAW into one […]

Books I’ve Recently Read | February Edition

Books I’ve Recently Read | February Edition

Hi! I was able to knock three books out of the park last month–mostly thanks to being able to read on my phone as I nurse the babe in the wee hours of the night. Now that I have a little more energy than I did a month ago, my time is being split in different directions, but I’m still keeping a book close by at all times! Do you ever read on your phone? […]

Another Bookish Questionnaire!

Another Bookish Questionnaire!

  Look what I found in my drafts! First of all, I would like to thank Cara for being a fairly steller napper. Second, I’d like to thank Laura, whom I borrowed these questions from like a year and a half ago. Yay! 1. What is your favourite fictional food or drink? I don’t think I’ve ever consumed a fictional food or drink. I hear butterbeer is pretty good? Hmmm–I guess I’ve likely also had green […]
