The Good and The Bad

BlogHer January 9th – NaBloPoMo Day Seven:Do you think you have more good habits or bad habits?It’s kind of unnerving to think about this. I’d want to say that I have more good habits than bad, but in reality I find that I’ve got a few more bad habits. Like Bad Habits: 53, Good Habits: 47. Maybe. I’m a little generous with myself with this ratio....more

Past Resolutions

I think I've only ever knowingly made a resolution once. To keep a diary/journal/whatever. And that fell apart after about the third week of January. So I've never been successful with resolutions. But I'm really excited for the resolutions I've made for this year. They aren't extremely difficult, and are actually quite fun.I actually just finished a book earlier on in the day, so only five more to go!...more

My Famous Recipes... NaBloPoMo Day 8

Today's prompt: What recipe are you known for amongst your friends and family?We have lots of food allergies in our family. So, over the last 8 years, I have become an expert at allergy free cooking and baking. I'm of the mindset that people shouldn't feel badly for my kids or me for not being able to eat certain foods. I'm also a firm believer that kids (and grown-ups!) should have yummy foods that bring comfort and happiness....more
