Happy Easter, everyone! It has been a relaxing weekend however I did have to make a trip to Whole Foods to pick up a few little things… on Easter Sunday. Biggest mistake ever! It was a madhouse and I had old ladies trying to cut in front of me at the checkout line and another […]

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday

  Happy 8th Birthday to my baby boy Izaak in New Zealand. This is him at my parents’ house last night with the cake I ordered him. Another birthday I have missed and it hurts to my very core. 8 years ago today, through blood,sweat and tears, you were brought into this world and I […]

  Today, we did a late term ultrasound to check the position of my placenta as it was creeping a bit close to my cervix some months ago. Everything is great except this baby has a gigantic head and belly (measuring two weeks bigger than everything else). I suppose with genes like ours, he didn’t […]

Finger Lickin’ Good Twice-Cooked Wings (Paleo, Gluten Free)

I mentioned in my last post that I took my husband to see Willie Nelson on his birthday. It was pretty darn cool and Willie is still rocking it at almost 80 years old. I had a great time even though I was massively pregnant and sitting in the front row directly in front of […]

Some years ago when we didn’t have babies, the husband and I went to see Willie Nelson live in VA. It was one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to and we are repeating that tonight here in San Antonio. It is an indoor theater and we are in the second row seating so […]

Do you have a travel bucket list? I definitely do! Growing up, I have always wanted to go see the world. Things got really difficult for me after college on the family front and for a while, I gave up all hope of ever leaving the shores of New Zealand. I watched my friends go […]

Hawaiian Ahi Poke (Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

We got married in Hawaii some years back and try to return there every year or so. I think if all the stars would align, we would probably retire there one day when we’re old and creaky. It has the beach and sea like what I grew up with in Fiji but is still America […]

  OK so in my last post on the cream of chicken soup I’ve been nomming on all day, I said this is all we are having for dinner but I lied. I realized that I have these Mahi Mahi fillets sitting in the fridge that need to be cooked. And now that dinner time […]

Since we came back from our trip to New Zealand and I finally worked up the courage to put 17-month old Emma to sleep without her woombie (a loose swaddle), we have been sleeping in 2 hour increments all night. It’s been rough in this house and I am looking at a looming deadline of […]

Chinese Lemon Chicken (Paleo, Gluten Free)

“Are you gathering twigs together?”, asked my husband when I mentioned my urge to clean and organize this week. It is that time in every woman’s pregnancy when you just go into this mode to prepare for the new arrival. I don’t really have anything ready but this is not my first rodeo so I’m […]
