hooray for 2013! Every year when January comes I get all excited to start over fresh and get some stuff done.  I think there’s two different kinds of people in this world: those who admit to making goals for the new year and those who claim they don’t do that sort of thing.  We can […]

    * wean Jameson from nursing 18 months and I am done.
    * start potty training (once the above is done)
    * be more organized with budgeting
    *pay of credit cards
    * find a good job when we move back to Arizona!ReplyCancel

    • I think money goals are on everyone’s list, right? Jameson is getting so big already! I can’t wait to meet him, when are you moving back to AZ?ReplyCancel

  • […] been following along, you know that at the start of this blog, I listed my goals for 2013 here.  Some I met, some I… didn’t.  Let’s review, shall […]ReplyCancel

For those of you who know, Bountiful Baskets is an organization that buys produce in bulk and distributes to it’s members for a small fee.  I’ve tried it a couple times over the years and always ended up straying.  But the price is right and the produce is usually local and seasonal, so I thought […]

    Thought I would tell you how I make my hummus!
    Garlic hummus
    1 can of garbanzo beans ( I get mine from trader joes)
    Juice of 1 LEMON
    2 cloves of garlic
    1 teaspoon of cumin, I have also used 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
    Sea Salt/pepper

    Mix it all up in food processor and garnish with paprika and parsley!
    I can’t stop eating it!ReplyCancel

    You could make Limoncello unless you have something against vodka :). You could also juice all those yellow babies put into ice cube trays and when frozen put in a baggie for when a recipe calls for lemon juice. Lemon Pound cake, salad dressing, hair rinse after shampooing, lemon bars, use them to clean with you can also dehydrate lemon slices and use them in tea. If these didn’t satisfy your lemon issue let me know I have more. My kids like ocean water (like at Sonic) we use lemon, lime, and coconut flavoring and some sugar yum yum. I have been without my Bountiful Basket for almost a month and I can’t wait till this weekend so I can have my fix.ReplyCancel

    • Me? Something against vodka? Hahahaha 😀 can’t wait to try this, thank you! Thanks for all the great ideas!! In the meantime, I’ve been putting lemon in my water and I’m going to try to make ginger, lemon and honey tea tonight 🙂ReplyCancel

    and water for the ocean water might be a little potent without the H2O.ReplyCancel

I’ve been into shadow boxes recently.  I saw a pinterest pin for the winter shadow box and had to try my own version of it.  Then we lost our kitty, Pooch, right before Christmas and needed a way to preserve his collar and paw print.  I decided to use a shadow box and put some […]
