Fall has begun and with that comes my favorite holiday. People that know me well, know that my favorite holiday is thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a time where our family gets together and we get to catch up and spend a day in joining a feast.
The Circle Edge Punch was part of this month’s Martha Stewart Craft. I had a lot of fun with it, and aside from using it as a decorative tool, I really had the chance to play with it and create some fabulous doilies using some fun scrapbook papers and the punch itself.
I’m a huge mexican food fan. I could eat beans & rice everyday if I actually knew how to make it “the right way.” It’s no easy task and I prefer to leave it up to those who actually know what they’re doing.
When browning the pork, you may need to add more olive oil to the skillet between batches; reduce the heat to medium if the oil starts to smoke.
I’m so excited for fall, that’s all I have to say about that.
Can I just rant for a second? Am I allowed? It wasn’t until I had my second child 4 months ago that I realized just how hard it is when your baby has issues/refuses to breastfeed. With my first child, I breastfed her for quite a while with no issues however, this baby… it’s been a constant struggle and the colic didn’t help it. She’s now exclusively formula-fed after many trials and failures (yes, I tried everything and I’m now not able to…) and now, being on the other end of the feeding spectrum, I realize all the judgment and guilt out there. When I see people posting #breastisbest and whatever else they post… I can’t help but feel a little urked and annoyed by it.. as silly as it sounds and it’s only because, I wish that I could still breastfeed. It wasn’t until I couldn’t breastfeed that I realized how hard others have it when they can’t as well. I never really thought about it because it wasn’t ever something I had an issue with. I guess the point is… I’m sorry if I ever judged anyone for not breastfeeding, because I too, at one point would be THAT mom… who would try to convince you that you should try harder when you said you couldn’t.. and for that, I apologize.
It’s hard to believe, but Halloween is creeping up. I have never been a fan, but my son is just starting to understand a little about it and he’s obsessed with pumpkins so I thought it would be a good year to get my feet wet with some easy Halloween Décor. Baby steps. Maybe next year I’ll tackle something a little more complicated, but for now I start with easy peasy.
