Mama's little helper...

Today's breakfast was strawberry crepes. Not that it matters what we are having, my little helper can't wait to assist Mama. She really likes to help with breakfast from the stirring, to the tasting raw eggs, to the yelling for Daddy that it is ready. And she usually says "It's so good, Mommy! Thank you!"

Happiness is...

Vegetable garden...



Herb garden...

Homemade Iced Lattes with beans from Bloom made with a stovetop espresso brewer...

Wearing skirts and no shoes when you are pregnant and hot (notice belly)...

What is with people who are so lonely they strike up a conversation with you in the line at the store only to tell you you are FAT!

I guess it must be obvious that I have been enjoying more than my fair share of sweets because some REALLY old lady at Walmart just said it looked like I was having twins and if not twins, a really big boy. I kindly informed her that it looked like she just got through sucking a lemon... well, I said that in my head but what came out was "No, I'm having a girl...I am just short". I am just too nice sometimes...

Moved in...

After 15 months of living with my parents, we have moved to our own little cottage! We are so happy to be able to support ourselves once again (even if it is barely). We are gearing up for a huge yard sale this weekend. You can't go from 2600 square feet to 1000 square feet without getting rid of stuff. No reason to hord stuff we can't use. I think the theme for our lives over the past few years (aside from "God is enough!") is cut off the fat. So, we are selling, selling, selling!

Back to the house... it is a cute 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage in Roseville with a small yard for the kids and dog. It has the lovely built-in in the living room which is pretty common for these old homes. I will post pics of the house once the piles of stuff become smaller ; )

Anyways, I am looking forward to growing our love and our little family here...
