Turtle cupcakes, Dude!

A while back, we were gifted a couple of Disney cookbooks. Evie has been begging me to make something from them since we started baking and cooking more. Especially The Disney Princess Cookbook! I mean why wouldn’t that be her first choice?! This book is […]

Bathroom? What bathroom? Remodel part 2

Bathroom? What bathroom? Remodel part 2

Next phase, walls. Well, plumbing too but we paid someone for that! Cement board went into the shower and half a wall behind the toilet went up. Toilet was in temporarily because I really don’t care for buckets! Yay toilet! Rough plumbing in place. Neither […]

Bathroom remodel- Part 1

Bathroom remodel- Part 1

Saturday morning, not so early, the teardown started. Since our bathroom is SO small, only my husband and dad could fit. They managed to get almost all walls down on the first day. 

Dust everywhere. I even put up plastic walls in the kitchen and the living room doorway. Still, the dust managed its way in! 


And the shower walls were taken down the following day. That tile was no joke! Two inches of concrete behind it! My husband and Dad are amazing! 

Evie and I just managed to stay out of the way and make sure they were both fed and had water. 

And then there was none….

Having no toilet was rough. But soon after I realized having no shower sucks too! 

To be continued….

Bathroom Remodel

Bathroom Remodel

I’ve been a bit distracted lately and haven’t posted much of anything new. In fact, Evie and I haven’t cooked a darn thing together. A couple weeks ago, we started a crazy, chaotic adventure in bathroom remodeling! ALL BY OURSELVES! I thought for sure my […]

Making Lasagna with a Toddler….is

….interesting. And fun! Mostly. Especially when you get a fancy new remote for your camera in order to document said “event” AND your sweet little toddler takes almost 200 photos with it and in the interim, kills the camera battery and you have to pause […]

Helping with Dinner 

Helping with Dinner 

More often than not Miss E helps me with dinner. Whether it’s helping dry the veggies, tearing the stems off spinach leaves or just grabbing ingredients she’s capable of reaching. She can be a great help when I’m in a pinch. She loves cooking and […]

Sticky Buns!

Sticky Buns!

But really, Cinnamon rolls. Main Street Bakery Cinnamon rolls to be exact. Their real name is to be debated according to Evie. Clarabell makes them. And if you know what I’m referring to you get a gold star!! Or ears, whichever you prefer… If you’ve […]

Here We Go….

Here We Go….

For years, I have wanted to start a blog(and stick with it), I have many lonely ones. My intent wasn’t ever strong enough for me, however….

About 3 years and so many months ago something happened. Or rather, my life’s sidekick showed up(Sorry Babe, you’re my sidekick too) My daughter, Evie was born. If I could tell you long ago where I thought I’d end up it definitely wouldn’t be where I am today. I wouldn’t trade it for all the vacations in the world.

With that, while I am working part time, we do everything together. And she loves everything I do; playing in the dirt, baking, going on vacations and living life. She lives it without abandon in her short 3 years and I think I’m going to follow suit.

Here we are: Living Evie.
