Choosing a Vegan Meal Plan Subscription

Choosing a Vegan Meal Plan

The first meal plan subscription I ever tried — many years ago — was The Fresh 20 vegetarian meal plan. It was a game changer for me. I ate healthier than ever, cooked something new every night, and learned so much about cooking. I enjoy cooking, but I don’t know the first thing about creating my own […]

My First Night Away from Sully

This weekend was a major milestone for Sully and me. Pete and I took an overnight trip to Austin, TX while his parents watched Sully. Sully’s never spent the night without us, and I’ve never been away from him for more than six hours. I was definitely ready for a break, though, after 16 months […]

Mother’s Day Weekend Recap

This past weekend was my second Mother’s Day as a mom. I had a fun, busy weekend. Saturday was pretty typical weekend stuff, taking care of errands, getting a hair cut, going to the grocery.

Quinoa Corn & Avocado Salad

Quinoa Salad

I’ve been using Hello Fresh for dinners since Sully was born. Let me just say I LOVED this service and it was worth every penny. We would have been eating so much take out had I not signed up for it. For those who are unfamiliar, Hello Fresh is a meal delivery service that sends you ingredients […]

& it’s Friday

This week went by so fast. It was pretty good for us, but I’m ready for the weekend! Today I took Sully AND Nico for a stroll together…something I’ve never attempted until now. I was amazed at how well behaved Nico was on the leash when walking alongside the stroller. She went right into business […]
