I Am Not Hard Core

Last night I got out of the house, by myself, for some "Me-Time."

I have always envied women and mothers who see Me-Time as smart, not selfish. They grasp the concept of "putting your own oxygen mask on first"—taking time to renew and regenerate—before doing-for and helping others.

Dairy-Free Crepe Quiche {and a shower}

Amy of Simply Sugar & Gluten Free is having a baby—and any day now!

To celebrate the upcoming arrival of Baby Boy Green, a group of us have come together to surprise Amy and Joe (that'd be Amy's husband) with a virtual baby shower.

As many of you know, Amy is always cooking up something scrumptious on her blog and hopefully today she can take a break, kick up her heels, and relish in some well-deserved love and special attention.

Pretty Up Your Pantry

This post was featured on The Bargainist and originally posted on October 31, 2010.


So one day I actually had some spare time to spend organizing my pantry. I went a step beyond purging and re-stocking and made some labels to slap onto my jarred bulk goods.

  • PDF Instructions
  • Baby Bowser Font & Terms of Use (courtesy of Kevin & Amanda)

Happy organizing!

How to Make a Vision Board

Pin It

Last Friday my neighbor and one of my dearest friends, Hannah, hosted a Vision Board Party. It was one of the best evenings out I've had in a long, long time. Close to midnight we said our farewells. I stepped out into the dark, a cold wind against my face and I felt energized! More than that, I felt inspired and renewed. Who would have thought a stack of magazines, a couple of glue sticks, a bottle of red, and the company of some amazing women would have left me feeling that way?
