Life in the Green House

I blog at Life In The Green House, Green because it's our last name, not because of a reduced carbon footprint. I started blogging to keep everyone up-to-date once my daughter arrived and it has since become much more. In essence the blog is a snapshot of our life, an extension of my need to talk all day long. I'm saved by His grace, a wife and mother, incurably southern, blonder than nature intended and a lover of all things caffeinated.

weekend recap

Let’s rewind back to Friday. BK has been asking and asking about when we could go to Chuck E Cheese’s, again. You can imagine my urge to head to the land of pizza, tokens, and penny items that costs 5678 tickets ....more

My latest Stitch Fix

It’s been a while since I blogged about Stitch Fix, but if it’s possible I love it even more now than I did when I first started about 2 years ago. With the exception of when I was, for lack of a better word, huge (pregnant with Jud) and nothing fit me correctly, I have consistently received boxes once or twice each month. (At the time they didn’t have a maternity option.) Let’s break this down....more

whole 30 approved, plantain nachos

I mentioned yesterday that I started another round of Whole 30. I’m always looking for new recipes and ideas to avoid getting stuck in a rut during the 30 days. Mexican food is one of my weaknesses ....more
