I saw this on a friend’s livejournal and loved it so much I nabbed it (!) to post here:

A nice reminder, especially on a quiet, snowy day like today.

But today isn’t just any normal day; today marks the first time that Henry has ever smiled!  I’ve seen him smile in his sleep, but this was the first time I was trying to make him smile  and he did!  Twice!  I was so happy I started to cry.  I didn’t even cry when he was born.  Obviously I have my priorities in order.


He is now happily asleep in his swing and I am drinking some green tea.  I wonder what to make for dinner?  Husband is at work.  I’d like something really healthy, like a giant salad, but we haven’t gone grocery shopping in a week and a half.  What is your go-to meal when you are on your own and are on low on groceries? I’ll often have a can of (bacon-free!) soup or scramble some eggs with vegetables and have that with toast.  I like quick and easy that ends with a minimal amount of dirty dishes.  I really just want to eat something GREEN though (Green tea doesn’t count, unfortunately.)


20 days until Christmas!  So far, I have listened endlessly to Christmas music, wrapped some Christmas gifts, put up a few decorations (no tree though!), and baked sugar cookies.  Not bad!  I still have a bit of Christmas shopping/wrapping left to do and there are always more sugar cookies to bake.  Last night, I half-watched a couple of the classics:  A Christmas Story and Elf.  I have a craving to watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and Love Actually.  Luckily I own Love Actually so this shouldn’t be difficult to appease.  Why are Christmas movies so re-watchable??!! <– new word!


While Henry sleeps I should probably prep dinner, whatever it may be, as well as experiment with his stroller.  We’d like to go to this sometime this week and I think a stroller would be advantageous.  There is always some new contraption to learn when you have a baby.  This is the truth!

    I was so happy I started to cry. I didn’t even cry when he was born.

    hey, a sense of humor is an important part of any personality, so I’d be crying at that first smile too!

    also, this is re: your other post, but thanks for sharing your sugar cookie icing recipe! I have been looking for an icing recipe that hardens for quite a long time, so I am planning on making and using it tonight!!

      Oh I’m so glad my sugar cookie icing recipe is helpful! I have made it a few times and it’s never failed me 🙂

What happens when you love to eat healthy (and some unhealthy!) food, love to live frugally, and love to write? You start a food blog, of course. Of course!

Eating well and living frugally does not always come easy, but Lord help me, I am trying! This blog will detail my endeavor to live the best life possible. This will include pictures of my cats, odes to almond butter, and the general miscellany that makes up my life. Enjoy!
