Gardening is Upon Us!

I came across this awesome post about the rise in gardening. While we’re technically Gen X-ers, not a Millennials, a lot of this applies equally well to Teddy and I. This is our first year with an actual yard, so we’ve completely expanded beyond our container garden of past years. Teddy built 4 large raised … Continue reading

Sushi in a Jar

Once a week, Belly Monster goes to day care and I get a day at the library to work on my current project. To save money, I’ve been packing myself bento box lunches (and posting them on my Twitter @jerseybridehh, if you’re interested). Now, I’ve been a vegetarian for I don’t know how long, maybe … Continue reading

Introducing Boobles™

Boobles™!!! Dying laughing here. Also, Old Faithful is the best.

Nursing on Baby’s Terms

I don’t know how long Belly Monster will nurse. We’re coming up on 18 months, and so far she shows little sign of quitting. Will we nurse through toddlerhood? Past it? I know some friends and definitely my mom (who was against nursing from the get go) already think enough is enough. But you know … Continue reading

Women Deserve Better

This is really powerful. I’m lucky that we found a supportive pediatrician who (so far) has not questioned our choices. She is actually pleased we’re still breastfeeding, and when I decided to delay transitioning to traditional solid food from packaged baby foods, even though that would mean not transitioning until after 1 yo, she was … Continue reading

Here’s where I stand on the 10 resolutions. 1.  Did it! Domestically to Annapolis when Belly … Continue reading

Recipe Review: The Pioneer Woman’s Homemade Applesauce

The Belly Monster loves applesauce. LOVES. She is always asking for it, and I figured with as much as she eats, I should give a go at making my own. After poking around online, I decided to try a recipe I found over at The Pioneer Woman. It looked pretty straight forward and quick, two … Continue reading

PoC of the Non-traditional Parenting Methods, Unite!

I’ve never heard of Love,d cloth diapers, that’s not the reason I clicked on this blog. This showed up in the Black Women Do Cloth Diaper group on Facebook, and I just loved seeing another PoC mommy in the Land of Blogs.  It’s so rare seeing other WoC when I go to cloth diaper (or … Continue reading

Sailboat Canning is a Thing!

This is truly inspiring. Canning on a sailboat! I can’t even imagine. Her kitchen must be smaller than my smallest studio apartment kitchen – where I never canned. “I didn’t start canning until I moved into my smallest kitchen ever; the galley on Kate, our Newport 41’ sailboat. The galley (boat speak for kitchen) is … Continue reading

How to Be a Good Wedding Guest

Why is this so hard?  Some people are just *horrible* wedding guests.  I think I’ve mentioned before that we had an entire empty table of people who RSVP’d yes and then didn’t show up on the day of our wedding.  I don’t even want to admit how much that empty table cost us.  (I’m actually … Continue reading
