Last week three San Antonio mom bloggers, Misha, Amanda, and Megan, generously shared their photography talents with other SA mom bloggers. A head shot meetup was born! We met at Bakery Lorraine.

It’s Not Easy Drinking Green

It's Not Easy Drinking Green...Juice

I’m sitting here feeling as though I might throw up. An hour ago I drank green juice for the first time. Earlier today I asked the guy at the juice bar for a recommendation and he said, “The Mean Green is what i’d recommend if you’re feeling low on nutrients.” Well, heck yeah, I’m low […]

Pin Tested: baking eggs instead of boiling them

Sometimes a pin comes along that I just have to test. Is it ultra cool? Will it make my life easier? Can it make me appear to be a cook without me actually having to cook? These are the pins I put to the test. Baked Eggs pin from Pinterest Boiling eggs? Not my forte. […]
