It was a good time! It's tough packing in a long day with two little ones, but they were troopers!

Hi Amanda! This was a great post. I have been following your blog for years and honestly am inspired every time I read it, thank you so much for sharing your pictures and words with us everyday. Ok, so two questions Do the boys listen to the red sox games? If it weren't for foodtv and the sox the TV would be gone in my house! Second, what are some of your husbands favorite books? I am partcularly interested in knowing if he has any favorite "parenting" type books? Thanks!

Looks are deceiving, there is no hugging going on in that pic! And I am in the 50's in the book, it needs to pick up soon, or I am putting down even sooner!

Hi! Delurking to agree with you 100% on all fronts: the dress, the cupcakes and the mag. But back to the dress, I think anything with the name "gypsy" in it sounds so intriguing that it immediately turns on the "I have to have this right now!" part of your brain. Actually now that I think about it, cupcakes turns on that part of your brain too, off to the kitchen. See ya! :) congrats on the babes btw!

These are such cute pics! Now for the question bonanza, I live in NH, how do I find out about a CSA? Is it difficult to find? Do local farmers do it? Nosey, Nosey, Nosey!

I love those cushions, and I have the same exact couch that I decided the other day that I HATE, good idea for a re-do with the cushions
