A blurry but happy girl's night in

Last night, although it wasn't planned this way, we gathered together for a 'Friendsgiving.' All 5 of us girls happened to be free, and Ericka graciously offered to host as she so often does, and the menu unfolded; Cheeses, baguette, vegan potato leek soup, autumn green salad, roasted sweet potatoes and zucchini, raisin quinoa, and vegan apple crisp. We're all such foodies-must be why we get along so well ;)

Sierra Madre

It seems rare to find a park that has a sand box. Not that I'm complaining. 

the hunger games

We've been eating well this weekend. Saturday morning I mixed slivered almonds and fresh raspberries into Trader Joe's multigrain pancake mix. 

Holiday in the Park 2013

We only went to 3 stores (Sheridan Gardens, Flirt, and Peggy Woods) but it was fun to be out and feel festive.

You know you're a mom when you're at the mall before the stores are open


Quick visits are good for the soul.

Sometimes in life it's so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day, and avoid breaking a routine, that you're surprised at how easy it is to get together with an old friend (from preschool!) over burritos and have your daughters play together & hold hands for a photo...and be done by 6:15 so there's still time to visit another old friend (middle school!) and her 3 kiddos and sit around the coffee table before heading home listening to Christmas music (don't judge) and carrying your sleeping toddler to bed.....
