How is Thanksgiving already almost here? Yes, I know I say this almost every time a holiday arrives lately. But seriously, how?
I have been seeing so many Thanksgiving dinner recipes that are making me drool, but something is missing from all of it–what about brunch?! Does anyone do a Thanksgiving brunch? Well this year, we are and I can’t wait to add this Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal to the spread.
Something interesting has happened since we brought Sam home. Something I had been warned about but didn’t really think much of it until I started living it. A friend told me, Just wait, you will get dirty looks from other moms when they see how good you look with a newborn.
Ok, that’s a bit extreme, however, I can’t tell you how many comments I have had about my body, and from strangers in just a little over two weeks.
Snacks have saved me the last two weeks. Convenient, simple, and filling is what I have needed. And this snack is exactly what I enjoyed–and I single handedly ate the whole batch aside from a few bites I rationed for Anthony, ha–oh wait, not joking.
I have always been a big trail mix person. Throw a bunch of nuts, seeds and perhaps some chocolate and you are set. But what if you took your typical trail mix up a notch? Ever tried roasting it? If not, you are so in for a treat!
Someone pinch me. Please.
It’s Wednesday afternoon. I’m sitting on the couch and I’m staring at my whole world. I just can’t believe this is true, real. This is my life. And suddenly all the years of pain, loss, and agony are gone. Wiped away completely.
And all because of you, Samuel Noah.
Here’s a weighted question (pun intended). Do you own a scale?
If the answer is yes, do you weigh yourself often? Is your day impacted by the number you see? And if so, why? These weighted questions used to be answered with a “yes” for me. But that is no longer. And how did this happen?
I threw my scale in the garbage.
