Remember me?

Hey all! It’s been forever since I’ve been here, but don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten. Somehow, life has been operating at warp speed and I never seem to find a minute to purge my thoughts to my trusty blog. 

I’m hoping that a quick resurgence will get the momentum going, so, here I am! 

As I mentioned, life has been crazy. So good, but so busy. From a personal standpoint, I’ve been up at 5am most mornings to workout, beginning my daily hustle. And I pretty much run around like crazy until nighttime, when I spend about 2-3 nights per week making cookies with my neighbor/friend/partner-in-crime. 

Sleep (briefly). Repeat. And, repeat. 

Sometimes it feels a bit like a scene from the movie Groundhog’s Day. 5am again?

But truly, I can’t complain. 

The kids are at amazingly fun ages. Not without their challenges of course, but mostly very fun.

I will say, Miss C has been wickedly spicy this past week. I feel bad complaining because it’s been an amazing few months with little to no spice, but daaaaaaang, gf is testing her parents. And of course, in total sour patch kid fashion. 

<C says/does something crazy. C’s head spins in circles from rage. C takes a time out. C re-emerges from said timeout.>

C: mommy, I love you so much. I’m going to be so nice to you and daddy and hemy every day because I love you so much. 

<Mom gives blank stares and wearily says, “okay”, as if she was just run over by a truck.>

End scene.

As for Hem, he’s been so sweet, too. Boy is still the noisiest human gracing the good earth, but adorbs regardless.

He definitely rivals Stewie from family guy, in terms of how many times one being can say momma (or Some variation) consecutively.


But seriously, life is good! I have so much to share and hopefully will get it all out soon. 

Thanks for not forgetting about me! 

Until next time, ✌️

Cookie Therapy

Back in February, my neighbor and I decided to attempt to make cookies to use as Valentines for the neighbors and C’s school. See full post here. 

After our first attempt, I wasn’t convinced that we had much skill. They were alright, but I wasn’t totally sure. Well, my lovely Type-A, perfectionist neighbor saw something different. Thus began our cookie adventures.

Since Valentine’s Day, we’ve baked maybe 5 or 6 batches (many dozen per batch) of cookies and are really honing our skills. Most importantly, we’re having a lot of fun doing it!

Here are some pics of our cookie journey…
