Chili lime pumpkin seeds

Last night was pumpkin carving at our house, fabulous company and quite possibly the most random and festive snacks. Grilled corn on the cob, from the farmer’s market and prepared by the Grillmaster himself hot apple cider (also from the farmer’s market, spiced up with cinnamon and nutmeg) and pie. Told you it was random…

Nature’s candy

Such a glorious fall day <3 The weather for the farmer’s market was perfection so the Pilot, Bell and I walked around to check out all of the goods- it’s been a while since we hit up our favorite Sunday farmer’s market. They had the usual fare: salsas, preserves, tea, ethnic foods, local honey, organic…

Kids and Candy

I’ve always been a big fan of Halloween candy. When I was younger, my friends and I would go to the “good” neighborhood, where many houses gave out full-sized candy bars. One guy even gave out dollar bills (?) instead of candy, and a dentist gave out toothbrushes. I secretly liked the toothbrushes, too, but…

Sunday morning

Lovely view Tempeh bacon Brunch for two <3 Since the only remedy for a lazy Saturday night is sleeping in (?), we slowly got up, were covered in morning kisses from Bella, and I made some bfast. Tempeh bacon <—if served on one plate, it isn’t as obvious that I’m the only one eating it…

That kind of night

We found our Halloween costumes! The Pilot is a video game nerd and I am a sleepy blogger. I’m saving Bella’s costume until absolutely necessary –to take blog pictures on Monday- because she’ll hate me the entire time it’s on… She will not tolerate antennae for longer than 5 minutes. I think we both knew…

Notes from the week

-Maternity shirts are worth it. Not that mine were a splurge or anything like that ($14.99 from that fancy French store, pronounced “Tar Jay”), but it’s amazing how good it is to wear clothes that fit, instead of wearing a longer tank top underneath or constantly pulling down my shirt. When I first wore the…

Traitors

I cheated on my high school last night. My bro, the Pilot and I met up with the fam (cousins, aunts, uncles, parents, nana) to watch my little bro’s football game. He plays varsity (and is only a freshman- impressive stuff!), for my alma mater’s rival school. So there were Kyle and I, sporting the…

What’s in the basket?

One thing I love about moving so often is that it forces you to get rid of clutter and start fresh wherever you go. Marrying a military man forced me to transform from the girl with hundreds of random bottles and cosmetics to more of a minimalist. I just get what I absolutely need and…

Happy Halloweekend

Hey everyone! Happy Friday and Halloweekend <3 We have a squadron costume (I just wrote Christmas?) party tomorrow night and still have to figure out our costumes. We have a few ideas narrowed down, so we’ll see what happens… Sunday is a pumpkin carving party at our place with cider and pumpkin pie, so it…

Not your usual vacay

I’m having some challenges with packing my hospital suitcase. According to Babycenter, it should be ready within two weeks, but I don’t want to take a bunch of things I don’t need or forget critical items at home. Here’s a list of Babycenter’s suggestions, and what I’m thinking about bringing: A picture ID (driver’s license…

Reader’s Request: Healthy Halloween!

Halloween is a great time to reminisce about the excitement of being dressed up in costume (and mad because mom made me wear a sweater with my sparkly Little Mermaid outfit because it was cold), swapping details with neighborhood friends on where the “good” houses are, and filling bags to the brim with candy. Around…

Hot Curler How-to

I’ve always been a huge fan of hot curlers. They’re super easy to use, inexpensive, and make you look like you spent a lot of time on your hair, when in reality, you totally didn’t. One thing I’ve noticed is that all hot curlers are pretty similar, but what you want to look for is…
