For the first time in – who the heck knows – how long, last night Jay and I actually enjoyed a real dinner…at the dinner table. I know, right? Who woulda thought? (99.9% of our meals are eaten at the coffee table these days). I was so excited, I even lit a candle for the […]

WIAW: Successfully Finished

by Courtney on July 9, 2013

Hey folks! Happy Wednesday! How’s the week going for everyone so far? We’re still truckin’ along over here – me and the babe in the womb, that is. Last night, I had a bout of some pretty painful contractions but, alas, I’m still off to work this morning. Nothing major happening just yet! So I […]

1. Iiiiiiit’s alllllmost the weekennnnnnnnd! I’m finding myself longing for this valuable down time on the weekends more and more these days…especially since I know the “quiet” part of it isn’t going to last too much longer. Rules for Saturday and Sunday? Sleep in without an alarm, no schedules, and go with the flow. 2. […]

So while I was at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday, I decided to buy a loaf of bread that we’d be able to use to make some paninis. I’m pretty sure it was the latest issue of Cooking Light magazine that revved up my desire for a panini, but whatever it was, they just sounded […]

Good MORNING! How’s everyone doing on this fine Wednesday morning? Things are going well over here…I’m just feeling a bit spazzy this week with trying to get things ready for HLS (already this weekend!) and organizing everything else that is my life.

I’m so lucky (and thankful) that my family doesn’t mind eating from TV trays in the living room when they come and visit us for dinner. We had a full house living room last night, thanks to the company of mom, dad, Little Bro, and Meegs (aka, my ice cream buddy) and enjoyed a nice, […]

Tonight’s dinner? Holeeeeee… I’d been thinking of tonight’s meal ever since last night when Jay and I actually made a half-assed attempt at a meal plan for the week. Yeah, we’ll see how that pans out…but for now, we’ve already got one solid meal in the books! I knew I wanted to use some of […]

Last night was so much fun! Shortly after Jay and I arrived over at Joe & Kate’s house yesterday evening, we got the chance to pop a little bubbly after finding out that Joey got a new job! Congratulations, buddy! Hey, you know I’m always up for an excuse to celebrate with a little champagne. […]

Good News and Bad News

by Courtney on September 7, 2011

The good news is that I slept a whole lot better last night than I did two nights ago. The bad news is that, what I initially thought was just an onset of allergies, is now a crappy cold. I’ve got my arsenal of goods for right now and am hoping I can stay on […]
