clearing the confusion

February 23, 2012

okay friends-
I've gotten a lot of emails about 
the big news I promised and talked about months ago
 but it kind of got postponed. 
Instead of being in Modern Ink Magazine's
February/March issue for Adriana's lunches
 I have been offered a spot in the 
April/May edition!
I'm sooo grateful.
They changed their format
 to be more accessible to readers
and couldn't fit everything in-
here's a snippet from them via their facebook post

please, go here to read the newest issue
it's fabulous and so user friendly,
plus, there are a lot of amazing things in it!
 I am still so psyched about sharing 
 this incredible journey with you guys. 
sorry for the confusion
 and thanks for keeping up!

houston, we have snow!

our first snow of the new year-
 which was odd because the weather has 
been so out of whack and let's face it
 we all gave up on the thought of snow.
it started snowing late Sunday evening
 and lasted all night
 leading to very excited munchkins
waking up to a little less than two inches.
good thing I got us dressed to go out
 and play because no more than an hour
 after we came in for soup and hot chocolate
it was all melted.


what's in your lunchbox?

with all of the sick days, a snow day
a field trip day and a day I brought a 
surprise lunch and ate with her
 we only have a handful of 
lunches to share in this post
but they are packed with delicious goodness
and lots of love-

I'll be sharing in a separate
post the reasons behind why I pack these lunches
 and the newest news about our good news.

little man turned four, February 12th
 and we couldn't have had a more perfect day.
I still can't believe how fast time has flown
my dude, my last baby, my rough and tough 
but oh so sweet boy keeps growing
and its bittersweet.
here are our adventures from his day-
 more so birthday weekend.

our day with grandma, papa joe, aunt sara
great grandma, aunt emmy and uncle jj

our day with ryland- on the twelfth.
