Conscientious Effort to De-Stress

Conscientious Effort to De-Stress

*Disclaimer – this is probably the most honest post I’ve ever written. Welcome inside my crazy mom brain. Leave bread crumbs. We are constantly being told that stress is bad for us. Of course, hearing that, especially when you feel hopeless to reduce stress, only stresses you out more. The other night I came very(…)

Pendleton Woolen Mills

Pendleton Woolen Mills

Do you guys know about Pendleton? It’s a huge deal in Oregon and although I had seen some of their stuff before I don’t think you fully appreciate it until you see it in person. Their mainstay is the wool blanket modeled after traditional Native American blankets and they are all made in the Pacific(…)

No Carb Zucchini Pancake Recipe

No Carb Zucchini Pancake Recipe

My mom used to make these zucchini pancakes when we were little and I never really appreciated them until now. She adjusted the recipe a bit to make it no-carb, paleo friendly and they are even more delicious now. Plus they have hidden veggies in them which we know by now that I love, a(…)

That Time I Made My Husband My Model

That Time I Made My Husband My Model

Remember when I shared my home try on with Warby Parker? Richard recently tried them out too and of course I made him pose for me. He is such a goober but doesn’t he have amazing skin? He never washes his face either. Kind of hate him for that .   Ramsay - meh, kind of(…)

Feeling Blue

Feeling Blue

Last week I was seriously wondering if I was even in charge of my own life: my emotions, my decisions, my thoughts. It’s been an extremely emotional couple of weeks and I’ve found myself in tears more in the past few days than the past year combined. On Saturday, I spent the day shopping and visiting with my(…)

Sundays at the Farmer’s Market

Sundays at the Farmer’s Market

Farmer’s Markets in Oregon are truly amazing. Adelaide looks forward to our weekly trip to “market” as she calls it and despite all of the hassle of loading everyone up in the car and wrangling them through the booths and aisles, I do love it too. We always make a bee line for eggs and(…)
