Wonton Ahi Tuna Poke Tacos

By | Food for thought | One Comment

There is one day of the week that we are always ready for, Tuesday.  Tuesdays mean tacos in our house, but we don’t always go for the same old beef tacos.  We have done chicken, pork, shrimp and this week I decided I wanted Tuna! I went to Pinterest to get some ideas and ended up with my own recipe for tuna poke, asian cabbage slaw, and avacocado wasabi slaw.

9/11 Memorial in NYC

By | Style | 2 Comments

While in NY to win the Flight of Philly competition (read about it), I wanted to go see the 9/11 memorial.  On our last morning in NY, we took the hot, stinky subway and headed to where the twin towers used to stand. Walking up to the first waterfall at the 9/11 memorial was breath taking and by that, it literally took my breath away. Read More

For our son’s second birthday, we decided to do something a little different and not throw a big party that he wouldn’t even remember.  We decided to make it a joint vacation birthday with his daddy and we loaded the Durango to the roof and headed to Galveston to stay at a beach house, dog and all.

Busy mom’s style

By | Style | 9 Comments

When I went to Create and Cultivate with my sister a few months ago, I got to meet the beautiful @Caraloren and I was just in awe of her style. I did some Instastalking and found myself double clicking all of the photos because this woman isn’t a fashion model! She is a mom like me! She has two small children and manages to get out of yoga pants and look fab most days! I came up with a game plan in my head. The first thing I had to do was lose like 100 lbs…. lol not really that much, but lose enough to be comfortable in my own skin. Read More

Sunday Funday at Moorhead Blueberry Picking Farm

By | Husband, Kids | One Comment

When one thinks about Sunday Funday, they probably think boozy brunch, sleeping in, and a great relaxing day. Right? Well, not when you have two tiny people that dictate your life. I heard about a “You Pick Blueberry Patch” pretty close to us that had just opened and memories of blueberry picking with my mom, cousins,aunts and grandma all came flooding in.  I remembered my aunt Sheryl meticulously picking over the ripe berries and freezing for us to take back to Florida and how amazing the blueberry crumble was that my mom would make upon getting home.  I was so excited to be able to take my family and do the same. Eghhhhh That is the sound a loud buzzer that should go off when I think of things like this! Read More

The fruits of my labor – Garden 101

By | Garden | No Comments

I have learned over the past two years that gardening is not for the faint of heart.  It takes a lot of time and energy to get things the way you want them.  There is a lot of time watering, weeding, fertilizing and researching what to do.  I learned so much last year with my first year and am continuing to add to my skills this year.  A neighbor taught me that you need to plant your tomatoes very deep and I have noticed that my maters are doing much better. The Heirlooms are so good! I love to eat them with just a little season salt. Read More
