pea and pesto zucchini noodles

It's already time for our April edition of Three Cooks One Kitchen, and this month is probably one of my favorites! Erin has been raving about spiralizing zucchini noodles, so Hannah came up with this simple, fresh, and oh so tasty recipe! This green Pea and Pesto creation would have been perfect for St. Patty's [...]

earth day seedlings

This past weekend, Eleanor and I got a jumpstart on Earth Day and tested out our "green thumbs" with some little seed starters! Gardening with my parents are some of my favorite childhood memories (especially the eating part), so I was thrilled to start the same tradition with my little lady :) Together, High Mowing Seeds [...]

love to dream swaddles

Is there anything sweeter than a sleeping baby? In my professional opinion, I'd have to say "NO, absolutely not" ;) Eleanor has always been a pretty good sleeper. Of course she had frequent nighttime feedings as a newborn and went through the typical developmental sleep regressions, but overall, our little lady was happy to lay [...]

summertime

Hello hello! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! We had absolutely PERFECT weather here in Omaha, so our family had a busy/productive weekend enjoying the sun and soaking up some (last???) moments as a family of 3. Friday was a busy day for Eleanor and I - we hit up Toddler Time at the [...]

baby prep: belly mapping

pregnant belly mapping

I think baby bellies are pretty awesome. I'm in awe of the way a woman's body stretches and adjusts to accommodate her growing baby, and love seeing (and feeling) the resulting "bump." Last night in Prenatal Yoga at Mommy Fitness, our instructor Julie talked about belly mapping - never heard of it? Yeah, I hadn't [...]

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, my parents were in town this weekend to help with some baby prep! Together my mom and I tackled 13 different recipes that yielded 13 family dinners and countless breakfasts and lunches for our family in the weeks to come. Needless to say, my freezer is full and [...]

Hello there! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We celebrated Easter with family and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful spring weather we've been having. My parents were in town to help with some baby prep, so I'm pretty exhausted from two jam-packed days of making freezer meals. I'll just leave you with two of [...]

bumpdate: 36 weeks

36 week pregnant baby belly bump

36 weeks! Eleanor was born at 38 weeks, so we **might** only have one "bumpdate" left! :) The last 2 weeks have been pretty good. I have more energy again, and some added motivation to GET THINGS DONE before baby girl arrives. I packed both her and my hospital bags last night and finished assembling/arranging [...]

Today I'm sharing another day of Eleanor's eats! I wish I could have done this last week and shown you the sheer volume of food my little tot put away - I'm fully expecting none of her clothes to fit next week! Growth spurt! :) Here's a look at what Eleanor ate Wednesday Tuesday... For [...]
