So as I was sitting around the house on Sunday evening, I was totally hungry for a snack. A dessert snack. Being as it was Sunday evening, my choices were limited. As I scavenged I realized I had all the necessary ingredients for s’mores in a bowl. Yeah, I probably wasn’t the first to come up with the idea, but the first […]
Speaking of toilet paper… We are back from our internship and into our house that we sublet for the summer. We’ve been using up the toilet paper and paper towels that our tenant left behind.

His favorite baby sign right now is “yummy” where he rubs his tummy whenever he gets something new to eat or drink. We just love Owen, and the time has come for Owen to get his very own playmate.
So I just finished reading Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse, by Stephenie Meyer. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
