obsessed with refrigerator oatmeal.

May 16, 2013

I feel kind of like an impostor posting something about food because everyone should know by now that I am not a foodie or a cook by any means. BUT maybe that gives me cred in a weird sort of way? Like, if this works for ME then it could easily work for you? Regardless, here goes. I used to be obsessed with cereal. I’d eat it for breakfast, dinner, snack, anytime I could get it. Then something happened when I got pregnant and I don’t like the feeling of that much milk on my stomach anymore. And I realized that cereal is basically just sugar; even the healthy kinds are not that healthy. In the hospital when I gave birth to Meredith I…

my mother’s day wish list

May 9, 2013

So this really isn’t a gift guide or anything, unless you are looking to get me a gift. Then by all means! But my husband asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day and other than time with my family (and some time to myself, let’s be real) I was thinking that even though I keep a running wish list, there are types of things that I never seem to buy for myself but that I always want. So this is what I mentioned to him: House plants – specifically, ones that can stand neglect like succulents. I am actually fairly attentive to my plants but since I’m just learning about them I need hardy ones. I have six small indoor…

spring loves

April 16, 2013

  Spring is my favorite season, I’ve decided. The weather, the idea of a fresh start, nature blooming, the lengthening days, all the outdoor activities happening…it’s fantastic. I only wish it would last longer here before the oppressive heat sets in. Anyway, here are some things I’m loving lately. Joy the Baker podcast – I’m late to this, because it’s been running for a couple of years now. But when I listen I feel like I’m just chatting with two awesome friends. It’s perfect on my commute. Anyone know of any other podcasts that are similar? Old Navy vintage tees – I have these in four colors, but I need to get them all. They are cheap, soft, comfortable, cute,…

// Moleskine smart notebook paired with Evernote. This is a note-taking, list-writing match made in heaven. I use Evernote for a ton of different things, but sometimes a physical list does the job better for me. So I bought a Moleskine smart notebook which is already super high quality, but this one has special paper (or something?) so that if you take a photo of the page an upload to Evernote your text will be searchable. I used fabric tabs to separate my notebook into four sections and I keep it with me at all times. // DUKTIG Mini-kitchen by IKEA. This is one thing Meredith is getting for Christmas. I have seen it in real life and it’s very…

// Jewel’s Lullaby album. We listen to it every night and sometimes in the car. It’s so pretty and soothing and perfect. // Dark chocolate m&m’s. I have a serious problem with these. I buy them by the pound and go through at least a bag a week. Hey, I’m just being honest here. // HGTV magazine. I’m overrun with unread magazines right now, but this one is released quarterly and it’s always the first to get read. I’ve gotten so many ideas from it. // Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara. You have no idea how happy I am to have found a natural mascara that really works. // Kindle Touch. I’m not new to the e-reader party, but my…
