A whole new look

May 27, 2011

Here it is… my new blog name and design. I originally started out with a pre-made template and name just to figure out how this whole blogging business works but soon realized that, although time consuming, I could create my own header and layout that suits exactly what I want and make it easy for all you readers to find your way around.

So, welcome to Eat∙Grow∙Love!! It took me awhile to come up with a name. I wanted one that would be to the point and tell you exactly what you’re going to read about.  I hope you like it!!

Please ‘like’ my blog page (by clicking the facebook box on the right and then clicking ‘like’) if you would like to recieve updates and notifications of new posts. I’m going to stop posting these on my profile (as soon as I figure out how to do it :)).


Mothers Day

May 8, 2011

I never really thought much of Mothers Day. I always celebrate my mom on Mothers Day; cooking a meal and buying her some sort of gift, usually flowers but I never REALLY took the time to appreciate everything she’s done (and sacrificed) for me and my sisters. Today was my first Mothers Day as a mom. Although my life has changed in so many ways I don’t really notice it. I have the most amazingly happy little boy and it is a joy to spend all day with him. He makes being a mom so easy.   Reflecting on the last 8 months here are a few things I’ve learned about motherhood:

  1. Check your shoulders before you leave the house; there might be drool, puke, snot or some other unidentifiable substance on them.
  2. Do whatever works, no matter what advice people give you.
  3. Never leave home without the soother… it’s the most important piece of baby equipment.
  4. You’re gonna get pooped on, just accept it!
  5. The color white should be avoided. At all costs!
  6. Baby Einstein is to babies what porn is to horny teenagers.
  7. There is nothing better than a big wet open mouthed kiss!
  8. Sleep is overrated!
  9. Babies need A LOT of stuff… the words ‘minimalist’ and ‘baby’ cannot be used in the same sentence.
  10. The second those little arms are wrapped around my neck for a snuggle it doesn’t matter how hungry, tired, dirty or busy I am.

My Mom & Thomas

Happy Mothers Day!!


My very FIRST Post!!

April 30, 2011

So, this is my very first post and I’m soooo excited about it! I am new to the world of the ‘blog’, I recently started reading a few different blogs (some of my favorites are listed in the right sidebar) and really enjoy what others have to share. I decided that some of the things I do may be interesting to you so here you go…. whether you like it or not, I am officially a BLOGGER!!! 

My intent is to share at least one tested, tried and true recipe a week, my adventures (and misadventures) in the garden and doing home renovations as well as the fun things I do with my husband Brad, and our 8 month old angel, Thomas.

I’m so glad you stopped by to read my first post (even if I forced it on you through a mass e-mail 🙂 ). If you want to receive  updates whenever I write a new post please enter your e-mail address and click  ‘Sign me up’ on the right.

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned…
