1. The melting smile emoji it 100% my new favorite emoji.

2. I really want to try this spicy margarita with a chamoy rim! I’ve never tried chamoy but see it allll over IG reels

3. Speaking of, how do you feel on reels these days? IG is such a bummer.

4. We live in an area that has a lot of stinkbugs (awesome) and they get in our house… Eddie thinks it’s hilarious that when he grabs them to get rid of them, he “accidentally” drops them and dances around. Not so funny because HE KEEPS DROPPING THEM and then they disappear.

5. What’s one pandemic-related chore that you’re keeping around? For me it’s grocery delivery. It’s so hit or miss, many times the produce is iffy and occasionally items are forgotten, but it is the best money spent. Well worth it to me!

6. TV things!! Okay so.. I was a bit… underwhelmed by This Is Us last week. I did like it, I thought it was clever and really well done. But something was just… missing for me. I don’t know what! Hmm… I watched Working Moms. I still find all the characters incredibly unlikable but blow through the show every time!

7. The things I’d do if I wasn’t afraid. I love this!

8. This weekend I (re?)discovered Fresca which I thought was more of a soda, but rebranded (I went down the rabbit hole, trust me) a few years ago and now is a serious grapefruit soda water. And OMG if you love grapefruit, you will freak. It is so delicious. Better than any grapefruit spindrift or seltzer ever.

9. The coastal grandma trend is basically my dream. Put me in a Nancy Meyers movie.

10. P.S. Summer Fridays returns next week!

A Week In The Life, Vol 21.

We’re on the summer countdown! It’s almost memorial day weekend, the end of school, Jordan’s birthday – everything! These little baby legs crossed while nursing! I can’t even handle it. Almost one whole year. Finally got a few herbs this week! She loves going to greenhouses. Too sunny to smile! Hanging out watching Max play […]

We’re on the summer countdown!

It’s almost memorial day weekend, the end of school, Jordan’s birthday – everything!

These little baby legs crossed while nursing! I can’t even handle it. Almost one whole year.

Finally got a few herbs this week!

She loves going to greenhouses.

Too sunny to smile!

Hanging out watching Max play baseball!

She asks for her picture to be taken everyday. It’s so cute.

He looks like he is 15.

This is the tale of Emilia’s blonde hair!

It has so many dimensions… I french braid it for baseball because that’s the only way her helmet will stay on.

And it looks like this when we take it out! It’s like highlights that someone would pay for.

Baby snoozes at the baseball field.

It was 90 degrees!

And she got the game ball! Let me tell you that she got it for “not playing in the dirt as much.” HAHAHAHA.

Popsicle season.

This boy!!

And this one. Chunky little babies in shorts. I can’t.

His eyes! His hair!

And his BFF, Max.

Jordan loves to give kisses, which means slamming his face into yours.

Ice cream for the win.

Chocolate raspberry truffle. A weird choice because I don’t even love raspberry!

Baseball got rained out today.

I did make the most delicious dinner though! My grilled vegetable orzo, which might be my most-made summer side dish. Also some chimichurri, grilled chicken, garlic bread and fruit.

No one loves a bath as much as this baby!

What an edible chunk of love.

4. Aerogarden update: I’m obsessed but now it really is out of control. Ha! Like I think I can have a huge handful of herbs just about every single day.

5. Speaking of, I still haven’t planted my outdoor herbs! We had weeks of horrific weather so I’m hoping to do it this week. Someone tell me how to get the best out o my basil please.

6. TV things!! Okay, This Is Us – killing me! That episode just broke me at the end. We finished Ozark and I was just like… is that all there is? Up there with a few of the worst endings (a non ending!) I’ve even seen.

7. 10 things to do on sunday for the week ahead. Love this but also want to do… nothing… on sundays.

8. One week until my summer reading list launches! Right now I’m reading Book Lovers. What are you reading?

A Week In The Life, Vol 20.

Somebody turned 11 months this week! And I can’t believe how fast time is flying. Best style of life. Max is super into baseball cards. It’s so cute. This made me laugh so much. He puts the ball in… and wants it back out that way too. Our school did a Moe’s taco kit fundraiser. […]

Best style of life.

Max is super into baseball cards.

It’s so cute.

This made me laugh so much. He puts the ball in… and wants it back out that way too.

Our school did a Moe’s taco kit fundraiser. I forgot about it until that night which was nice for a surprise easy (warm) dinner.

These are the things Emilia sets up all over the house.

Everyone wants a hug.

And then he turned 11 months old. I seriously cannot believe it. Honestly, it brings a ton of anxiety – I can’t believe how fast time is moving. I wish it could slow down.

Giggle BFFs.

She climbed up right next to me and snuggled asleep. This never happens!!

Joy!

Double joy!

This is my little odor eliminating pot if I burn something or we cook something and can’t get rid of the smell. I learned this from tracy shutterbean! Boil lemons and cinnamon in water. I refill a few times and just keep boiling. I swear it works.

Look at him up on those chunky little toes!

Visiting the buffalo in south park! She said they stink. Ha.

Baseball boy.

Kids requested make-your-own-pizza!

What a way to end it.

3. We ordered Ina Garten’s chocolate cake from goldbelly last week! It was just kind of… meh. The recipe is amazing but I think I’d rather just bake it myself here. This is the second time I’ve ordered something from goldbelly and been underwhelmed. Have you tried anything?

4. Can I really put life on easy mode?!

5. We’re deep in the midst of making our summer bucket list. This stage is so fun.

6. TV things!! So much good TV – last week’s episode of This Is Us was crushing! We watched Ozark… I started The Flight Attendant too! I never ended up watching the first season of that.

7. What are you looking for most this summer? Easy dinner ideas? Grilling? Lunch? Cocktails? Tell me below!

8. I love this method of creating simple family routines.

We had a lovely mother’s day week! I can’t handle this baby boy. Hello twins! Emilia loves having her hair in a braid. It’s the best way to do it for her tball games too! Broccoli babe. It’s his favorite… for now. I made Emilia the best grilled cheese ever. My rainbow girl! She asks […]

Hello twins!

Emilia loves having her hair in a braid. It’s the best way to do it for her tball games too!

Broccoli babe. It’s his favorite… for now.

I made Emilia the best grilled cheese ever.

My rainbow girl! She asks me to take her picture every time we leave to go somewhere.

I made some grilled chimichurri chicken for dinner one night.

We had bad storms and tornado warnings last week. Max insisted they pack up backups for the basement.

She loves her school projects.

Glamorous mom life!

She is so much fun!

Off to school.

I want to eat him up!

The best thing I make is PB & J!

Dandelion season.

Balloon garland prep for my cousin’s bridal shower!

Peony season is the best.

Is there anything more fun than the ribbon bouquet?!

So lucky to have the three loves of my life!!!

1. This chocolate olive oil loaf cake looks outstanding. 2. A few weeks ago I mentioned that we had a Crumbl cookie open near us. I was uninterested at first but now am convinced the business plan is genius – they only offer the cookie flavors for a week before changing. Can you even imagine […]

2. A few weeks ago I mentioned that we had a Crumbl cookie open near us. I was uninterested at first but now am convinced the business plan is genius – they only offer the cookie flavors for a week before changing. Can you even imagine being one of the recipe developers?!

3. How to start and progress on a project. Well this is just wonderful.

4. I’ve rambled (read: complained) for years about my photo library on my phone. I have over 200k (yes… you read that right) in my photo library. My iCloud is full and I can’t buy more. I started using the sorted app and I LOVE IT. At first I didn’t think it would make a dent (great all or nothing mindset!), but it definitely makes a dent and I find myself deleting a few thousand photos a day. Highly recommend.

5. Obsessed with Charlotte’s coffee reels. They make me want iced coffee every day.

6. TV things!! Just started the last of Ozark. Oh my gosh – last week’s episode of This Is Us – GAH! Finally worth watching for. I’ve been waiting for that forever and I actually think it was my favorite episode they’ve ever done. Did you watch?

7. I can’t get over Blake Lively’s look for the Met Gala!

8. This week marks the one year anniversary for Everyday Dinners! We started a new cooking challenge in the cookbook club and I’d love for you to join us!

A Week In The Life, Vol 18.

Crazy that we’re into May! This little bubs! I cannot handle him. Every single one of Max’s baseball practices and games have been cancelled due to rain – except this one!! Finally! These cuties at the water table! Best girl before school. Her outfits!! She loves walking Jordan. Max, Emilia and I blew up a […]

These cuties at the water table!

Best girl before school. Her outfits!!

She loves walking Jordan.

Max, Emilia and I blew up a bunch of balloons for our nanny’s birthday

The mission was to keep all the balloons away from Jordan. He was not happy.

This chantilly cake was amazing despite the sad looking fruit.

Real life rainbow brite.

Look at those cheeks.

I marinated some diced onion for one of our house salads this week!

Emilia was seriously drinking with these puppets on her hands.

Jordans on Jordan.

Time for tball!

This is what Jordan thought of tball…

My chives came back and they are starting to bloom!

Finally some legit play-outside weather.

We visited my grandpa who is home from Florida… almost 94!!

She is just the brightest light on earth.

Max and I have enjoyed playing Battleship so much! He got it for his birthday and is loving it.

This is a peek at my aerogarden from last week – the herbs have already doubled again!

Annnnd it’s a new week!

Tuesday Things.

1. Very tempted to try this air fryer pb and j! 2. I am still a magazine junkie in 2022 even if I don’t get a ton of time to flip through them. Broke my heart last week when I saw that Martha Stewart Living is going out of print. 3. On that same note, […]

2. I am still a magazine junkie in 2022 even if I don’t get a ton of time to flip through them. Broke my heart last week when I saw that Martha Stewart Living is going out of print.

3. On that same note, I love that Max is super into writing, drawing, pens, paper, highlighters – everything I love. I hope that never changes! I gave him a new pack of highlighters last night and you’d think he got a bar of gold.

4. Productivity hacks that actually work. I’m a huge fan of time blocking and batching work.

5. I’m seeing Coachella things all over of my IG and while going may be my worst nightmare, my generation that is there is definitely selling it a bit. Actually seems a little fun.

6. I love reading people’s morning routines.

7. TV things!! I’m watching WeCrashed and it is sooooo good. Also want to start Severance!

8. And I adore the idea of a reset ritual.

Our weeks are picking up at a little bit!

The kids’ activities are starting up and the end of school has us on the go.

We did another easter craft!

Rode bikes in the rain, hail and snow. I mean, what?

This toast is the best. Talked about it in my april faves.

Recipe disasters!!

Emilia plays so nicely with Jordan!

Tball practice. Her stance!

Watching a movie in a nugget fort.

The kids painted these stepping stones they got for easter too.

This weekend I spent most of my time at the IACP conference here in pittsburgh! I’ve spoken at this conference a few times over the last 14 years and it was cool to have it here in my city!

Because of that, I missed Emilia’s first tball game – it was 85 degrees!! I cannot handle her.

And I missed this baby so so so much.

My edible babe.

Pizza partay.

When it’s 85, time to bring out the water fights.

How is he this big?!

I can’t believe it.

I told Emilia to get in her PJs after her shower and she came down the steps in this outfit. I am obsessed with her.

Look at those teeth!! On to a another week…
