Recipes, Shopping lists, & Hello fresh discount!

This week started our trial of Hello Fresh (for the second time). We tried the service when our babes was born for the convenience. The recipes are delightful, we were trying new foods and combos. We just LOVED trying new things together. Too bad the ingredients weren't actually FRESH. While their customer service was delightful, they always credited our account to make up for the wilted produce, that still meant one of us had to get our butts to the store to complete the meal. BOO. A girlfriend had recently started using the service and loved it! She said they...

Chrissy Teigen's Mac & Cheese and this week's recipes.

For our Saturday Date Night recipe this last week the hubbster picked out Mac & Cheese from Crissy Teigen's cookbook Cravings. Her playful, peppered with disdain, nod to her Husband John Legends Mac & Cheese started the whole night off right.  "This is MY mac and cheese, dammit. Everyone is allllllways asking, begging John to make his mac and cheese and if I may be frank here for a moment: I DON'T GET IT. I will admit, I like it too, but I prefer a creamy, saucy mac.

HOW TO MAKE A ONE OF A KIND COFFEE MUG

 This little shop of mine all started with a dollar store mug, zero design experience, and a dream to stay home while monetarily contributing to my family.  To start, I design the stencil in my Silhouette software and make sure the fonts are welded and compound paths are to my liking. {click on those crazy words to be taken to a youtube tutorial}. For this example I was making a girlfriend a birthday present. Ever since we saw the movie Waitress eons ago, we'll text each other "I miss my friend pie", or "you're my favorite pie" or "how's my friend...

We have a baby!

We have a baby!

First can we talk about the actual having a baby and the hospital stay afterwards? I had a scheduled c-section for my little breech darling, we were cool calm and collected, even prepared, as we went to the hospital. We took a family photo with the puppers before we left them to go meet their new "bald puppy" of a sister, and we stopped to get the hubbs more eyedrops on our way to the hospital.I understand this isn't a luxury most mama's get.
