little vintage collections

i am perfectly aware that having little vintage collections is just a polite way of saying hoarding. just like saying “over served” is for drunk or “delegation” is for i don’t want to do this project. you know? but it just sounds better to call all of these things in my home collections rather than […]

lemon blueberry cake

ok so my latest thing is to bake. i am slowly getting better at it and it’s been pretty therapeutic. however the cravings to bake is usually sweets sweets sweets. so i thought by adding fruit it doesn’t exactly count as like really bad right? especially if i have just one hot from the oven […]

weekend recap about town

this was such a relaxing fun weekend i don’t want it to end. but alas it’s monday and i barely slept a wink last night. around 8pm or so i started hearing squeeks coming from somewhere. upon further investigation there are either bats or mice in the walls. i stood in one of the older […]

finally friday out and about

it’s finally friday and with seriously zero plans this weekend i’m anxious to get out and about. just where to i’m not sure. there are no fleas or antique shows going on (that i know of) and the weather is going to be blasted cold to be working outside… so what i’m going to do […]

pregnancy workout

i’m coming up on my one year anniversary at phyx in grandville and i’m proud to say that this just might be the longest i have ever stuck with a workout. i know i’ve said it before but there is something special about this place. the women and men there are so encouraging and welcoming. […]

sheep ultrasounds

we had an exciting day at the farm! our sheep had their ultrasounds for lambs! i don’t think most people get ultrasounds for their sheep. pretty sure that is reserved for the novice farmers. but when the vet offered to come out my curiosity got the best of me. we’ll see how that changes once […]

coconut maple granola recipe

ok so sunday joe and i spent the day cooking and baking and doing a little food prep for the week. i really really really wanted to make something healthy with our first jar of maple syrup we received from the people who make it in our sugar shack in the back yard. sounds sketchy […]

weekend recap spring forward

i like the idea of spring. i like the idea of jumping forward into it but i’m not happy about losing an hour of sleep AND these ridiculous snow storm we received this morning and is supposed to continue on through the rest of the day. however i made it to work (courtesy of joe […]

finally friday party weekend

i don’t know if it’s technically called a “party weekend” if you are not out drinkin and are in bed by 9pm but i’m going to call it a party weekend. why? because i have TWO fun parties to go to this weekend. thats right…. this lady is going out on the town. look out! […]

farm junk lamp

i have had these farm junk lamps for about a year now that i bought from a friends shop before he closed and it moved to the east side of the state. i actually have a pair of these but two on this little table would be way too much. they’ve been sitting in storage […]

Max and Erma Tortilla Soup Knockoff

ok  so pregnancy cravings are in full effect. but it’s not for one category in particular. it’s like nothing will sound good to me until something does. that is how i ended up mowing down some olga snackers last week sunday. (ps did you know a fricken basket of those buggers has like 1300 calories?!) […]

my favorite non maternity sources

let me just start out by saying…maternity clothes are butt ugly. i do not want to wear a shirt that says “i swallowed the watermelon seed” or any stupid crap like that. which seems to pop up every time i google “cute maternity clothes”. seriously does everything have to be so kitschy? i feel like […]
