Cooking Pains

I STRONGLY dislike the process of cooking. For the first 22 years of marriage my husband did most of the cooking because he loves it and he is an amazing chef. We had a great thing going until he switched careers, which decreased his after work flexibility. That left me to cook. (Que the violin) Normally I look at a […]

GMama Pajama Party

This is how we do it. Dates with the g-babies are an event. We sang, danced, read books and I taught Kenna how to play Old Maid. I was so worried that Nomi would cry with her mama not being in sight but she did great and get big sister kept her entertained.

Whenever we have an opportunity to utilize a work trip for togetherness time we take it! The hubby had some visits to make in New York which was right up my alley. We stayed in the heart of Manhattan which added its own extra flavor to the excursion. Speaking of flavor, to all my fellow cheesecake junkies, I have one […]
