Five Fact Friday

Five Fact Friday

1. On Sunday we went to Brian’s Great Grandmother’s 95th birthday party in Detroit. It was a 5 hour drive and we went there and back on the same day. It was a really long LONG time to be in the car, but Ada did great and it was fun meeting that side of Brian’s family (most of whom he’d never met either). Also, Ada got to meet her Great Great Grandmother and they got a 5 generation photo which is pretty amazing. I hope...

Five Fact Friday

1. So last week we went with some friends to see a play-thing called The Intergalactic Nemesis: Book 2 (yeah, we say part 1 too). It’s not really a play, but a “Live Action Graphic-Novel.” It’s like a comic book, an old-timey radio show, a piano and a box of weird crap had a baby. They have comic scenes projected on a screen, three actors, acting out all the parts, a foley artist who makes all the sound effects, and a...

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Seriously. I have eaten too many of these cookies. I’ve made two batches in the last 48 hours and only 5 cookies remain. Granted, we did have some friends over last night, but it’s safe to say I ate WAY too many. They’re just so good you want to keep eating them long after your stomach is achingly full. They’re like a hybrid of the classic peanut butter blossoms my aunt makes and my mom’s chocolate chip recipe....

Five Fact Friday: Saturday Edition

Five Fact Friday: Saturday Edition

Ok, ok, it’s Saturday, but in my defense I meant to write this last night, but I ended up going to bed at 9. That’s not a great defense, but I’m going with it. 1. This week I did a mini olympic weightlifting camp at my crossfit box and it was insane! I usually go to CF classes for an hour 3 times a week. This was 2+ hours for 5 days this week. I’m beat. I did get some new PRs though, so I’m really proud of myself...

2014 Goals and Stuff

Happy New Year everybody! So it’s that time again to look back on the last year and ask yourself some important questions: Did I accomplish the goals I set out to do? Was I happy? Was I awesome enough? I’ll answer these questions and more for the low low price of $29.99. Here are my goals I set last year: – Learn to be a good healthy cook and not just a good unhealthy baker. – Met, I tried tons of new healthy recipes and...

Felt Puzzle Game for Toddler – Snowman

Felt Puzzle Game for Toddler – Snowman

For Christmas we did a few homemade presents and this has to be my favorite. Not only because Ada loves it so much, but because if cost nothing and took about 5 minutes to make. If you didn’t already have felt, this project would definitely cost less than $2. Felt sticks to itself, so it makes a perfect little puzzle game for toddlers because they can easily move the pieces around and they stay in put. You could do any shape, the...
