Linkish Finds 1

This blog started to be a food/motherhood blog and I’ve been hardcore slacking on posting here. I’m not really sure why. I do want to build this blog and it’s social media but lately I’ve just felt like time has been getting away from me. I guess because between moving, setting up appts for both Tums and Sophie and trying to catch up on the things we were suppose to do pre-Covid; not to mention prepping for the holidays and…

Why I Cancelled 2020 For My Family

When it comes to this pandemic there are a few things to strongly consider; the health of myself, my family and most importantly the health of Tums. I always thought I had a bad immune system but I realized that I just take super extra care to MAKE SURE to NOT get sick. My husband however doesn’t share the same habits. And he gets sick not only  easily but FREQUENTLY. And that makes it hard for me and Tums since…

Bits of This Week;

I use to do this on my super old personal blog but it was more like a weekly recap. I enjoyed making those posts and I miss doing them. Maybe I’ll do them here now? We’ll see. This week I’ve been super busy working on my new food blog; I decided to create a blog where I review food and snacks because I’m not ready for people to find this blog yet (specifically my in laws). I wish you could block…

Why I Stopped Calling Tums Pretty Girl

  I recently noticed that every time I’m trying to gas Tums up or encourage her my default was always “look at you,  pretty girl” and after awhile she kinda understood it was a compliment and she’d smile or laugh. I don’t exactly know how or why I decided to switch it up; I know I had been blogging about my day maybe? A particular subject? I don’t remember. But it was a blog post that made me realize what…

Brain Fog + Motherhood

I know this is weird space of time for everyone and even though my usual life routines haven’t changed I still feel like I’m losing track of time like everyone else is. Mentally I don’t feel like I’ve been doing  better in the last month or so. I feel like my progress has somehow stopped. They indeed increased my medication dosage and I thought that would help but I do know some doses do more for you and others may…

Hello Fresh; Garden Spinach Ricotta Ravioli

I recently subscribed to Hello Fresh and I’ve been enjoying it so far — and everything I’ve tried has tasted SO DAMN GOOD. Like these meals are  amazing! In total I’ve made 2 meals and Bubba has made 2 meals. If you decide to dabble in it make sure you have the basics on hand: oil, butter, salt and pepper. Everything else they’ll take care of! I failed to successfully record my first Hello Fresh experience but honestly I was so hungry…

Happy First Birthday Tums!

It’s so crazy to think it’s already been a whole year since Tums was born. I literally feel like the last year just zoomed by. I guess when you’re worrying about staying on top of clothes that fit them month to month it’s easy to lose track of time — which I feel like the 3-6 month clothes almost didn’t even happen! I always say this but being a mother was never in my life plans, like at all. I didn’t…

Newborn Must Haves!

There are a few must haves for newborns. One thing I didn’t know when I had Tums; well, tbh I didn’t know a lot considering before her I  hated kids and never really had much experience around any, especially babies. So everything about motherhood and babies I kind of had to learn literally as she was growing. Which wasn’t so bad! It was kinda fun and definitely interesting! Babies have preferences which for some reason I think is  weird. Like…

Tums’ First Sprinkles Cupcake

We finally went to Sprinkles Cupcakes with Tums! I stopped by to get the Mardi Gras cupcake (which was delicious, btw) and decided to get her her first cupcake: a vanilla mini. Her birthday is next week so I figured, why not. It would be a test to see how she’ll handle her smash/bday cake. I haven’t exactly decided what we’re going to do just yet. The whole Corona Shut Down pretty much ruined all the birthday plans we had…

Southlake | Dragon House

I don’t remember how I came across this place but I’m always looking for an excuse to go to Southlake. It’s such a cute place to shop and just stroll around! I absolutely enjoy coming here! I saw on the Dragon House Yelp page that they served these cute bunny dumplings so I  really wanted to try this place. But when we went, they said they didn’t have any that day. I tried again a second time and they said…
