Goodbye Atlanta, Hello Detroit!

Hey y’all (Yes, I still have my southern twang, and have “y’all” and “bless your heart” in my vocabulary) !!! We’ve been in Michigan for a little over a week now, and have definitely been through the ringer with toddler adjustments, heatwaves (I thought I was getting away from 90 degrees and humidity??), and organizing … Continue reading Goodbye Atlanta, Hello Detroit!

First impressions of the new city

So one of my last posts was the big announcement - we're leaving our home of the state of Georgia to pack our tyrant twins and head north to a suburb of Detroit. Or even possibly downtown Detroit and rent a condo for a year. Who knows. That's the million dollar question (if only the … Continue reading First impressions of the new city

Bulk buying with kids and decluttering wishes: I don’t even know where to begin

The pollen in Georgia is OUT OF CONTROL and we just can’t take it anymore. I’m in a fog no matter what kind of antihistamine I try to take, and my son has an inhaler because his allergies are so bad he’s been wheezing. This right here is one of the things I am NOT … Continue reading Bulk buying with kids and decluttering wishes: I don’t even know where to begin

Organic and yummy red sauce, or as we call it in the south, spaghetti sauce

So thanks to the plethora of organic veggies my “bro” brought over last week, I got to make spaghetti sauce from scratch (we had a TON of tomatoes). I had never done this before, so I'll admit, I was a little nervous. There's not a much bigger feeling of defeat than 1) when you take … Continue reading Organic and yummy red sauce, or as we call it in the south, spaghetti sauce

Organic, local and fresh

Aspiring to live a healthy lifestyle is something I truly pursue. I don't workout hardcore, but I do exercise, and I do my due diligence when it comes to nutrition labels and organic ingredients. And with a little help from some of my friends and family, it makes it a little easier to follow through with … Continue reading Organic, local and fresh

The sacrifices we make as parents

In October of 2014, when we found out we were pregnant with twins, my husband and I knew that me going back to work after six weeks of maternity leave just wasn't going to work for us. It also didn't help that I was let go from my job…. two days before our first doctor's … Continue reading The sacrifices we make as parents

Shattered glass, fake pets, southern drawls and mistaken identities. All before noon

Today I had quite an experience at the park when I took the duo to swing for a bit. Both an enjoyable but also somewhat confusing experience. After my little terrors wreaked havoc at the grocery store...  ... we pulled in the park to get some sunshine and swinging in. As per the typical way, one … Continue reading Shattered glass, fake pets, southern drawls and mistaken identities. All before noon

Making mealtime a little easier some nights

Last night I didn't have time to really put together a “good” (read: not a freshly picked from the garden and sweated over for hours over the stove 5-star) meal for the littles. But thankfully I had a ton of leftovers to heat up. It's quite a hodge podge of food but I'm pretty sure … Continue reading Making mealtime a little easier some nights
