Happy New Year 2013

Written on January 2, 2013 at 13:52, by

I was never a “resolution” person. As much as I’ve tried before I’ve never actually kept up with my resolutions, be it New Year’s, Birthday’s or whatever.  So, I will not commit to any resolutions, not this time 2012 was a full year. Read more

Beignets: A New Orleans recipe (with a healthy twist)

Written on July 3, 2012 at 18:38, by

    One of our favorite movies lately has been the Princess and the Frog, from Disney back from 2009. We keep watching it over and over and over and maaaaaan do I get cravings for those beignets shamelessly exposed again and again on the diner scene. Read more

Picnik Sunday

Written on March 21, 2012 at 12:02, by

The weather suddenly got better within the week and by Sunday it was heavenly warm. So we decided to hit the mountain! We found a calm and relatively smooth spot (so Philippe would feel free to walk around) in front of a monastery and we camped to enjoy our picnic. Read more

Re-post: If only I could lose 5 pounds by Friday

Written on March 19, 2012 at 12:49, by

Spring is here, spring is here, spring is here at laaaaaast! And the talk on beach style is already growing heavy around me… And to be completely honest, well, this year there is no excuse… it’ll be a year and a half since my last birth by the time we hit the sea and I know damn well that the cooling-off period is most certainly over…  I haven’t been working out (unless walking up and down the stairs some 20 times per day counts as workout but the last 6 months in this new stairy home have proved to me it doesn’t really) or dancing (this is really killing me and it is why I feel gravity drawing me constantly on the ground).

Project re-style: Cover for ironing press

Written on February 3, 2012 at 13:14, by

Ironing has been an issue for the last year, since our fourth family member came about. Mommy dear endowed me with her old ironing press, very rarely used but certainly not well handled… Mom and her ironing press didn’t really get along throughout the years and so it ended up in our home with a more than half-burnt cover, ripped foam bed and destroyed aluminum layer.
