Broken Bones and Shattered Dreams

Broken Bones and Shattered Dreams

Are you looking for a cute shoe for summer? I wouldn’t recommend a boot for a broken foot. Three months ago I broke my fifth metatarsal during an exercise class. It’s called a Jones fracture and it’s not healing well. At my last follow-up appointment, the doctor […]

Improv Recipe! Summer Pasta with Chicken Sausage

Lately, it’s seems like I’m throwing dinner together at the last minute pretty often! This Summer Pasta dish is something I threw together after a long afternoon at the pool. Using pre-cooked sausages, quick cooking veggies, and pre-measured Greek seasoning means that it was on […]

I’ve Got This…or Maybe Not, It’s Been a Tough Week

Friends, I’ve had a tougher week than normal. On Monday, Baby C got a little sick. Three days ago, I got stuck while bending over to pick up something off the floor (dang you, heavy baby car seat!) Yesterday, my son pooped on the floor […]

Change a Dinner Fail to a Dinner Win!

Change a Dinner Fail to a Dinner Win!

I’m sure we have all been in a dinner fail situation. The one where you take the first bite and think, “Eh, this is gross, but maybe it will be better with another bite.” Or, “There is no chance my kids will eat this.” Let’s face […]

Delish Flank Steak Fajitas: Recipe for an Amazing Marinade

Delish Flank Steak Fajitas: Recipe for an Amazing Marinade

We (I) love Mexican food, especially fajitas. However, I rarely eat steak, mostly chicken dishes. Don’t get me wrong, a well-prepared steak tastes amazing. After five or so bites though, I am usually good. Someday soon, I’ll write a post about how I am trying […]
