Two in a row

Last night, we had a blast celebrating Kyle’s bday with the fam. All the usual feast suspects were also in attendance, including madre’s glorious enchilada casserole beans, jars of salsa that will set your soul on fire and she also picked up some cupcakes for the Ravens fan. After our amazing dinner, we went home…

Today I have a delicious recipe for healthy baked zucchini sticks. They’re perfect for when you have a hankering, but don’t want the greasy, fried variety found at most restaurants. First, here’s a bit about what I’ve been up to lately: shopping for bridesmaid dresses! Steps for Trying on Bridesmaid Dresses 1. Shop with the…

Chickpea Cakes with Indian Spices

Last night we had an amazing dinner at Saffron–my favorite Indian restaurant in Tucson. We left in curry-food comas and I was inspired to create my own meal using spices reminiscent of our experience: Chickpea Cakes with Indian Spices Our date night mentality has changed a bit after having a little one. The Pilot used to ask…

Tie Fail

So many fun adventures today! A world beat class (which was amaaaaaazzing) hike at Sabino Canyon and dinner with an intimate party of 17. I was SO excited to take world beat this morning. As I mentioned before, there’s no recorded music, only live drummers, and we dance to international rhythms including African, Latin and…

Things that go “smack” in the night

The other night, while I was feeding Livi, I heard an intense SMACK into one of our living room windows. “Wake up! I heard a noise!” I went into the bedroom and shook the Pilot, who sleeps with earplugs in (thank goodness he didn’t have to fly in the morning), and he woke up, grabbed…

Prom picture:…

Sugar buzz

I’m still sugar-buzzed from last night.   (GF ones in the middle, regular on the sides) Of course, the ones we messed up were dubbed “eaters” 😉 Everyone came over here to decorate the sugar cookies that mom, nana and I made the other night. Before our friends came over, I rolled out the dough…

Dia de los Muertos

What a great night   to paint our faces like skeletons and walk around downtown Tucson. Check out how creeptastic the Pilot looked! *shudders* His first time wearing guyliner 😉 Hayley and I were painted up, too: Tonight was the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration and parade downtown, so we definitely…

Piece of cakewalk

Tonight was a lovely night for a squadron party [the return of hogcorn!!! <—popcorn popped with jalapenos] and a fall festival. The best part? They had a petting zoo, and the Pilot and I got to pet and cuddle multiple goats.   If that’s not the best way to party on a Friday night, I’m…

Hi friends 🙂 How are you? Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday. This morning, we took a little trip to visit my great-nana. Last time we saw her, we promised we’d take my brothers with us, so today we delivered on our promise. We had fun talking and hanging out with nana, and after leaving, the…
