Fam Bam Time

Mom! What’s for dinnnnner?

I’m always looking for fast, yet delicious, and somewhat healthy(ish) kinds of dinner ideas. Crockpots are always a great idea, but I don’t own one, so it’s impossible for me to utilize these wonderful inventions…. without signing into my amazon prime account anyway 😜. So, F A S T.

Who Says Mom Needs a Shower?

The image of productivity, has changed significantly for me since Willow’s birth. No longer do I rise at the crack of dawn to trek into a job that I cannot claim to miss.

I seem to kill all living green things. My talent of murdering helpless plants seems to extend to every plant except weeds. This doesn’t stop me from…

World Breastfeeding Week

August 1-7, 2016 is World Breastfeeding  Week.  This week is among the various weeks that are near and dear to my heart.

The Fam Bam Camps

My husband and I bit the bullet, so to speak, and we took our newborn on her first camping trip. We spent the weekend in central California at Lake Lopez. The trip went really well. Little Willow is such an easygoing little baby, so the whole trip was very pleasant. The heat was an issue for the first couple of…
