1. You guys how is this year already HALF over! I mean, what is happening.

2. Strawberry pop tart shortbread. What! This is amazing.

3. So thankful we don’t have the cicadas right outside our house (yet?!). Please tell me you remember a few years ago when they bombarded us when Max was one year old and they landed all over us (and him) and I had about 40 heart attacks. They need to be gone soon!

4. How to combat that zero motivation feeling.

5. Can someone please tell me how to deal with laundry as a family of five? Pretty sure my mom just did it almost every single day, all day. I mean, this is probably what I fear most. And Eddie already does a lot of the laundry in our house. Ha!

6. TV things!! Okay I finally watched the Friends reunion and it did give me all the feels. Especially the Jennifer Aniston/David Schwimmer stuff! What did you think of the Grey’s finale? I liked that they finally did a time jump. 100% think Jo and another certain character will end up together…

7. With both of my last pregnancies I got super hungry towards the end and right now I am craving ice cream like whoa. I haven’t even had any good ice cream yet and it’s been, like, a week. Of course do I have the mini magnum ice cream bars in my target cart for delivery? Of course.

8. Also typical third child: 37 weeks and have no hospital bag packed. Eeeek!

9. This is SO good: what have I missed out on this year.

10. Everyday Dinners cookbook club is GOLD right now. Have you joined yet?!

1. I’m such a weird mix of emotions since the baby is almost here! I’m excited for summer with the kids but also have no idea what summer will look like. It’s crazy that this baby is almost an exact six month difference from the time of year I had the other two. Let’s just say I’m very glad I will be able to take walks since it won’t be December!

2. I’d say we’ve officially hit the ice-cream-is-an-acceptable-dinner season.

3. Today kicks off a new month of challenges for our everyday dinners cookbook club. Join now if you have a book!

4. Ummm these peanut butter cup stuffed cookies look insane!

5. TV things!! Ohhhh my gosh the Mare of Easttown finale. I knew something had to happen halfway through when it already seemed “over.” The ending just killed me. I couldn’t handle it! I still haven’t watched the Friends reunion yet.

6. 50 positive affirmations to tell yourself. I love this!

7. Nespresso has coconut coffee (to make over ice!) and it’s pretty much my new favorite thing. Super good and you know the issues I’ve been having with liking coffee right now.

8. I love this. You can never escape yourself. So be someone you’re happy with!

9. Pretty sure the most adult thing ever is when I pack up a “car essentials” basket for the back of the my car in the summer and get excited about it.

10. My favorite ever visor is this one and it always sells out in the summer. I LIVE IN THIS THING. I mean it’s amazing for pool/beach, but also just great for being outside in general if you like to keep the sun off your face.

1. All I’m craving in life right now is sourdough with sharp cheddar and fresh tomatoes. And I probably won’t have a legit GOOD local tomato here for, like, two months. At least! 2. You are doing a good job. I love. 3. Over the weekend my kids had cinnamon toast for the first time. […]

2. You are doing a good job. I love.

3. Over the weekend my kids had cinnamon toast for the first time. I know that I made them the cinnamon toast recipe I have in The Pretty Dish, but Max was sooo little and Emilia wasn’t born yet. I finally made it for them this weekend and they couldn’t believe how good it was. My grandma was the queen of cinnamon toast!

4. This mediterranean farro salad looks incredible.

5. TV things!! The Grey’s episode this week did really get me. Eeeep. Also still on Mare of Easttown and loving it.

6. The perfect way to say no.

7. What are your travel plans this summer, if any? It’s crazy how everything is booked up for basically the next year.

8. I found this so interesting! Millennials are entering a decade of despair. Ha! I hope this doesn’t happen to me in a few years.

9. Summer fridays is coming back next week! Can’t believe it’s already here.

10. How to become a plant person when you’re super busy and kind of lazy. Hello!

1. Last week I wondered if I will ever want to wear clothing with a zipper again. I mean, yes, I’m sure being nearly nine months pregnant plays into this but after a year of wearing nothing structured, I can’t imagine! Not saying I don’t want to dress up – I do and I will. […]

1. Last week I wondered if I will ever want to wear clothing with a zipper again. I mean, yes, I’m sure being nearly nine months pregnant plays into this but after a year of wearing nothing structured, I can’t imagine! Not saying I don’t want to dress up – I do and I will. But things with zippers and no give? Hmmmm. It’s a different world!

2. Dying for these cheesy potatoes with bacon and chives! Oh yum.

3. Super excited that it’s planting season, but can I tell you how I have an irrational fear of watering cans? It’s not the actual can, I’m just SO convinced that any time I grab it out of my garage, it will have a very large tarantula or something hiding inside. I have a whole routine I do to make sure there is no giant killer bug hiding out.

4. How to save space in the fridge and freezer. I need this.

5. TV things!! Haven’t really watched anything this past week, but I’m very tempted to start The Woman in the Window! Did you watch it?

6. A once in a lifetime chance to start over. Wow!!

7. On the busy days we have now all I can think to myself is how much I wished we could have a busy day last year at this time. Are you doing the same? It totally changes my mindset!

8. Um I might be the most excited person on earth because my summer reading list comes out next week! It’s like christmas morning for me, but for books. I love making it and selfishly use it the whole rest of the year.

1. Whaaaat! Toast and jam ice cream. Oh my gosh. 2. I found a coffee I can stomach right now, and it’s the salted caramel cream cold brew (so yes, basically dessert). I mean how weird would they think I am if I asked for half cold brew, half foam? Not really joking. So in […]

2. I found a coffee I can stomach right now, and it’s the salted caramel cream cold brew (so yes, basically dessert). I mean how weird would they think I am if I asked for half cold brew, half foam? Not really joking. So in other words, I found a cup of foam I like.

3. Why people hate white condiments. It’s actually a thing!

4. Last week I dropped my phone face-down in a cake, covering the front in frosting. Didn’t think it was an issue until I realized I can’t hear anyone talk when they call me. So the inside of my phone is apparently filled with dried frosting now.

5. TV things!! Um, I CANNOT EVEN HANDLE what happened on Grey’s last week. I did not see the exit coming based on previews, which may have been dumb on my part. I mean… NOOOOO.  Gosh I love to hate it.

6. The baby continuously kicks (punches?) my ribs to the point where I almost expect to see bruises on my stomach! Ha. I’ve never had this before with either pregnancy and it’s crazy.

7. Basically never been so excited in my life for strawberry season. And strawberry picking.

8. How to be relaxed in stressful situations. I mean… this is amazing but can I do it?

9. Max filled out one of those cute mother’s day surveys as school and the final question was “your mom looks prettiest when…” and his answer was “when she goes out to dinner.” Hmmmf. Well. It’s been about a year and a half for that sooo… what’s this say. Ha.

1. Everyday Dinners is finally HERE!! And super exciting news: it was chosen as the amazon best pick for cookbooks for the month of May!

2. It feels so crazy to put something out into the world that was fully created and finished before we went into lockdown. One look back at the photos in the book and I’m instantly transported into our normal “before” life. It’s nuts.

3. All I want in life right now are these flourless almond butter cookies.

4. Man, I’m still really off coffee and I just miss it so much! I’ve had a few iced coffees here and there but it doesn’t taste great to me. I miss the taste and the ritual so much. I’m really hoping my love for it comes back once I give birth, haha.

5. Have you lost creativity during the pandemic? I definitely have felt this so much.

6. TV things!! I started watching Mare of Easttown this past week and absolutely love it! Have you tried it yet?

7. I always adore Merritt’s capsule wardrobes. She hits it out of the park.

8. Pretty sure I’m the only one that had no idea baked oatmeal became a thing on tiktok recently. I thought it was a thing way before.

9. Do you like the person you are becoming? This is so good! Definitely something I think about, especially when it comes to how the kids see me.

1. Let’s start with something deep! Have you given up on a dream? 2. I cannot handle these cookies and cream rolls. OMG. 3. It’s such a minimal complaint but the lack of dates on certain articles and blog posts now makes me batty! 4. Oh my gosh. I really love this. 5. I missed […]

2. I cannot handle these cookies and cream rolls. OMG.

3. It’s such a minimal complaint but the lack of dates on certain articles and blog posts now makes me batty!

4. Oh my gosh. I really love this.

5. I missed seeing the traditional Oscars red carpet this past Sunday! My best dressed were Regina King and Amanda Seyfried. I loved both so much! Also, did anyone else see Emerald Fennel’s speech where she mentioned Zack Morris?! I just about died. I felt SEEN.

6. Love this! How to find time for your meaningful work.

7. TV things!! Okay so the hype of Meredith + Grey’s is making me crazy enough to watch and then annoyed that nothing happens until the last 2 minutes. Haha, they so have me suckered in. The McDreamy scene just got me good. I was transported back.

8. Anyone else heartbroken that astronauts do not eat that astronaut ice cream in space?! This is so interesting. (NYT)

9. So I really haven’t baked with my sourdough stater (no bread in, like, a year?) but I can’t seem to let the starter go! I’ve managed to feed it and keep it alive for over a year and that I consider a success. My family still sees it on my counter and they’re like… um, what is that?

10. YOU GUYS! We are ONE WEEK out from the launch of Everyday Dinners! Get it get it get it! This is most likely why I’m so full of exclamation points today.

1. Desperately wish I was the person who was so organized with digital photos and printing them out, but I’m not. Not at all. I’ve made a few books over the years but I need a system I can stick to. 2. Um, why have I never thought to make a waffled quesadilla?! 3. I’m […]

2. Um, why have I never thought to make a waffled quesadilla?!

3. I’m not planning on doing any freezer meals for this birth, mostly because it’s the complete opposite season of my previous two births – and we have so much access to fresh food since it’s June and not December. But a non-negotiable for me is frozen cookie dough (of course!) and my lactation cookies too. They are the best.

4. I’ve mentioned it in a few of my weekly life posts but Max is now requesting to take a book everywhere and I can’t even handle how much I love it. My reader’s dreaming heart explodes every time.

5. Four ways to have a better morning routine!

6. TV Things! It has been years since I’ve watched American Idol, but I’m actually enjoying a bit of it as background TV! I used to LOVE it in the first few seasons. Feels like forever ago.

7. How to just start a difficult task. I do this with SO many things! It’s always one of my goals to avoid putting things off – things that often take a few minutes at the most. I think it’s become even worse during the pandemic for me since we weren’t doing anything. My dad always says “the more you have to do the more you get done” and it’s SO true.

8. I just saw over the weekend that people are buttering their saltine crackers and now it’s becoming a trend. What! My grandma used to do this with soup (pretty sure I wrote about it on the multiple times in 2009/2010) and while I can’t imagine it, wow – everything does come around again.

9. Everyday Dinners is out exactly TWO WEEKS from today! Ah!

2. Pretty sure one of my goals this year was to meditate and I have failed miserably. Yes I even have all the apps. I need all the tips you can give me because I’d like to get into a regular routine of meditating, especially before giving birth. I’m hoping it will allow me to be less of a lunatic. Ha.

3. There’s always enough time!

4. I know I’ve mentioned this in previous weeks but I have literally forgot how to dress myself since the pandemic. Throw in being pregnant and I’m just like whaaaat? how? leggings? great.

5. I haven’t been worried about the whole “re-entry” thing into the real world so much, but! Now I’m like wait, how did we all get ready and have everything ready to go and be at this certain place at the right time?

6. See also: I’m the person that is so early all the time that it never fails I’ll spend 15 minutes either driving around or sitting in my car because I’m that early. It’s a sickness.

7. TV things!! I actually did SORT OF start to get back into a Million Little Things last week! Kind of reminded me of an older episode. I also really liked This Is Us!

8. On taking the long view of parenting. I love this!

9. Throw some of your favorite podcasts at me! I need some new ones to listen to.

10. Over the weekend I read Abby Jimenez’s new book (her last book inspired me to start the book club!) and oh my gosh, it was so good. I can’t get over how much I loved it. A must read.

2. Desperately need these coconut macaroon brownies.

3. I tried this onion cutting hack: place a wet paper towel right by the onion as you slice, and apparently it won’t make you cry? Total fail for me. I even moved the damp paper towel around, higher up, right on the counter next to the onion – nope!

4. Best tips for kids in the kitchen.

5. TV things!! I did like a Million Little Things just a bit better last week! Also thinking about starting The One on netflix.

6. Last week I bought an electronic fabric shaver to remove pilling from our couch and chair, and it’s basically been the highlight of my life. This definitely has to be the definition of getting old.

7. Are you planning any summer trips/road trips? We still have our annual michigan vacation planned but nothing else because of the baby timing. There are just so many places I am dying to go!

8. The most anticipated spring books! Ahhh I can’t wait for my summer reading list to come out next month. So many good ones!
