The place we first called home

Now that we are headed towards spring, the real estate market is starting to pick back up.  I’ve mentioned before that we are considering a move to the country once we find the land and house we are looking for.  It’s so weird to think that our current home, our first home, won’t be our […]

Jenson had a rough week of sleeping – or actually waking WAY too early, which means we had a rough week of sleeping, which means Lo had a really rough week sleeping.  Actually, even though he gets up with him, he probably gets more sleep than me because he’s not a dumbass like me and […]


Will Cheerios be gluten-free, for real? Maybe not.

“Recently, gluten-free blogs and Facebook sites have been atwitter with the news from General Mills that Cheerios will be labeled as gluten-free starting this summer.  Most are linking to this WSJ post, but it’s accurate to the original post from General Mills…including quotes and such. Here’s the claim: Basically, Cheerios are made from oats, which […]

Random thoughts: music, weather, sleep (or lack of)

Just some random thoughts I jotted down today (okay, I typed them…I can’t read my own writing when I “jot”). I pulled up Pandora and the first song on my shuffle was one that I hadn’t heard before – I Wanna Be Yours by Arctic Monkeys.  As I was listening to it, I thought-did he […]

We got over our colds this week, minus a few sinus headaches/migraines early in the week.  I already posted about our weekend, but it was the highlight – getting to visit SIL’s family and new twin babies, followed up by going to the zoo on Sunday. After work each night we had dinner and then […]

Gluten free breaded tilapia

Gluten-free Breaded Asiago Tilapia

We hadn’t had fish in a few weeks, so when I needed something that would thaw quickly for the next day, frozen tilapia filets would be perfect.  When I organized the pantry recently, I found some gluten-free breadcrumbs and thought I’d give them a shot.  Just in case the breadcrumbs sucked, I decided to mix […]

It was quite a week last week.  Jenson had a slight cold/runny nose from the week before (which he shared with Lo) and spiked a fever on Wednesday.  The doctor got us in right away and found that he had an ear infection.  I stayed home with him the next day, but his fever went […]

Weekend: twins, zoo, and other fun stuff

Heart stop.  The moment you hear a loud thud from upstairs, long after everyone else has gone to bed, and you realize that it’s from something hitting the nursery floor.  I imagine Jenson having hurdling himself over the railing somehow, but luckily when i looked at the camera, I saw that he was standing up […]
