Hi people. What do you think of the makeover? I have been messing around on Best Mama and thought I’d hit this site too, while I was at it. Hubs says: there’s wine on the header, that makes sense. 

It does.

If you’re on the hunt for some good stocking stuffers, I have run across a few things lately that would be perfect (read: cheap!) for the stocking, and are actually kind of awesome.


First, this. If your stocking can’t accommodate a bottle of wine, I would consider upgrading.


Smoking Loon 2010 Cab. It’s really good. And it was $8.99 a bottle. I was like, omg Hubs, let’s go buy ten! And he was like, Okay. Are we still pretending that your wine problem is a wine solution? 

It’s the holidays!

Also, this.

It’s called the Precision Pore Cleansing Pad. It’s from Sephora (big surprise!) and it’s $5. I cannot say enough about this weird little piece of plastic. You just put a little of your cleanser on it, and massage/cleanse your face. It really does leave your skin so soft and gets those pores clean.

In other news, we finally put pictures up in our house. We moved here in October of 2010. I’m really not kidding.

Big thanks to my dad for taking the pictures, printing and mounting the pictures, and then UPSing them to us.

Wow, aren’t we awesome?


We love our picture wall! It’s made such a big difference in making it look like specific people live in this house. As opposed to just, random people with a crapload of toys and bottles.

Well, I’ve got a test to study for. I probably need to block myself from Facebook for a few hours.






I had almond pulp. It felt soft and smushy, like cookie dough. I felt inspired.

There were several things I know led to the ultimate failure of these very cute little cookies. 1) I forgot to pit the dates when I blended them into my almond milk. 2)Almond pulp + ground up date pits + shredded coconut needed something else to help it become moist and bind. 3) I shouldn’t bake.

But don’t worry.

I didn’t waste the chocolate.

Any of you had success with doing something edible with your almond pulp?

Yesterday did have a few yummy interludes.

Probably one of the best omelettes I’ve ever made. Gooey, rich, goat cheese. Fresh, sweet tomatoes. A schmear of salty, savory basil pesto. And of course those buttery, pillow-soft eggs. Ugh. I’ll be doing this again in just about an hour. Can’t wait.

More pickles, which are simply the best snacks ever. This time I used white vinegar and like them even more. They taste more like dill pickles. But better.

Are you wondering how to make your own almond milk? I’ll refer you to my friend, Megan over at Detoxinista.

Just remember to pit your dates.
