Here we are back in Jacksonville! Settling in is a never ending task. As such-we are having a HUGE yard sale this weekend. Of course, we choose the hottest week of the year ( or at least it seems that way)! Anyway, I found this website for yard sale-ing while working with the PTO at […]
Last night I went to Outback Steakhouse. I asked the server if the steak was cooked in butter. He said it was but being very accommodating, he assured me they would leave off the butter for me. Hooray! Then I asked if he knew whether or not the Bloomin’ Onion had dairy in it. He […]
“I can live without it,” was my immediate thought upon finishing a piece of homemade chocolate cake covered in thick buttercream and filled with oreo crème. You see, I’ve spent the past month dodging everything that might contain even the slightest amount of dairy. This means no biscuits, no chocolate, no ice cream. I know […]

A couple months ago I bought some yogurt to use for my healthy baking. Of course healthy baking didn’t happen because of (Insert Excuse Here). The yogurt, though expired, had not yet been opened. So it’s still good, right? Plus it was only over it’s expiration date by about a week or so. I don’t […]
Baby Bear is a fountain of knowledge. Not even kidding. I told him I was contemplating going back to work. You know what he said? “Who would watch us? You shouldn’t go back to work until I am old enough to stay home and protect Tiny Bear.” I’m telling you. Pure. Genius. But what I […]
