I’m still a bit in shock b/c I would’ve bet money that we were having a girl, but we couldn’t be more excited! Little boys love their mamas!
Our son, Owen Ray, will be making his appearance in late October
Would it be bad if I brought him home in a tiny Dracula costume? Oooh, ooh, ooh! Or Harry Potter!!!!
I’m thinking that would probably be the cutest thing EVER.
SO, SO, SO, SO, SO, SO EXCITED!!!

Y’all know what today is?
Today may or may not mark the first day of the rest of my life.
As you are reading this, my husband and I are more than likely sitting in my Drs office looking at our little cuddly tree frog on the ultrasound anxiously awaiting the phrase, “Congratulations, It’s a….”
But, honestly, I’m not even sure if they will be willing to venture a guess yet!
Today I …
Strawberry jam has always been, well, my jam!
Layer it on toast, drizzle it over a wedge of creamy brie, or slather it on some thick, seedy bread for an out of this world PB & J. In my opinion, there is nothing better than fresh homemade strawberry jam and, when mixed with a hint of sour rhubarb, it just makes the sweet spread absolutely swoon worthy.
“Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” …
Happy Monday, minions!
How are y’all feeling today after yesterday’s festivities?
Surprisingly I, for some unknown reason, woke up feeling like I had slammed back about 17,000 tequila shots with all the rest of the Cinco de Mayo-ers. Clearly, that wasn’t the case. In fact, I didn’t do or eat anything Mexican themed at all this weekend!
It’s those strange cravings/aversions, y’all.
Okay, so I’m not promising that I’m back in full swing 100% yet because my food aversions are so awkward at the moment it’s really hard to nail down when I’m going to be able to cook something that won’t make me turn 50 shades of green, but as of right now I’m not feeling like a rotting zombie so I’m going to take full advantage of that fact.
Currently, the little …

So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.”–Romans 14:8
I know y’all are all probably wondering what in the world has happened to me.
The truth is, I’m starting to wonder what *HASN’T* happened to me and my family lately.
The past few months …
Soooooo…you know how I used to post on a regular basis, including boozy Sassy Hour recipes, and then I suddenly fell off the face of the planet because I’ve been complaining about being super sick and not having the energy to get in the kitchen and cook?
Well, the truth is, I have been sick with various ailments that have completely knocked me into oblivion, but I’ve kind …
Get in my belly…
And hopefully you’ve realized by now that I’m talking to the frenchity fries, not to you, my loverly minions.
Fresh, oven baked french fries that taste JUST.AS.DANG.GOOD. as a piping hot order of the sweet and spicy Bojangles fries which all of us have indulgently scarfed down on many an occasion then immediately regretted because we started thinking about all the junk that we had just force fed …
It seems like forever since I’ve done a weekend wrap up post, huh?
It’s probably because it *HAS* been.
There really wasn’t any point in wrapping up weekends when I didn’t do anything to wrap up! Luckily, this weekend was full of fun, and I got to document every last second of it. Well, the exciting parts at least
Friday evening we didn’t …
