Your blog and business have inspired me for years. When I found out I was pregnant 4 months ago, one of the first things I did was scour your blog with all the pregnancy/baby advice I could find to 'pin.' I can't wait to cloth diaper my baby, breast feed, baby wear, etc. thanks to you!! <3 nicole

Josh and I can't decide if this is banana bread or cake. Whatever it is, it's the best and it's made with whole wheat flour so it's practically a health food. I'm going to share my recipe (adapted from several other recipes so now I can call it MINE ha!)... Continue reading

I've been neglecting this blog. I will continue to do so by creating a non-post containing links to other blogs to make up for the lack of writing in this one. :D These are some things I will be cooking soon! Enjoy. Healthy Chicken-Zucchini Alfredo Except, I'm subbing the zucchini... Continue reading

And I'm already tired. This is not a good sign! This semester started off in a very traumatic way. Sunday night Josh and I learned that someone we knew had committed suicide. This is a situation I've never been in before. To say it was devastating is putting it lightly...I... Continue reading

I'm back! Maybe. Who knows these things...I go through phases. I start my MFA program on Monday. That's a day away. Pretty close. Surprisingly not nervous yet, but that's probably because my first class is MexAm Lit and not a workshop...that's when I'll get nervous. I'm probably also not nervous... Continue reading

It's only a week and a day until I say goodbye to UST! And with all the stress that's been surrounding me here lately, it can't come at a better time. But I won't go into that. . . I'll go into my scenes for playwriting instead! For our final... Continue reading

Yes, indeed. I have been absent. I wish I could say I have been busy...and I have...but that wouldn't be a real excuse. I think what's to blame is Netflix. :D It's AMAZING. Anyway...the best update of all...I'm going to UH's MFA program in the fall. ?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!! WHAT?! OMG! WHAT?!... Continue reading

Tomorrow UST's Undergraduate Research Symposium begins...and I keep being told and retold how this is such an incredibly wonderful opportunity for someone my age. Apparently most people don't present at stuff like this until their Doctoral programs. I don't know how true this is--but it sounds pretty darn snazzy. On... Continue reading

First note: I caved. I caved and used shampoo--I know, I know. Awful. I couldn't help it. I like fluffy suds in my hair during the shower, they are kind of like therapy. I missed them, and felt sooo good after the first shampooing. Oh well, maybe I'll try again... Continue reading

Day three no-poo: my hair feels odd. Although smooth (no frizz), it also feels coarse. Do not like. Not sure where to go from here. Actually, though--I have to admit. Before I washed my hair this morning, it felt pretty good, but I felt weird not washing my hair (cause... Continue reading

A few weeks ago I posted about the dangers of commercial shampoo and what some people are doing about it. One of the websites I gave (here's another one) showed how some people are completely giving up shampoo (even the organic stuff), and instead using only baking soda+water as "shampoo,"...

Here's some cute weheartit.coms for you and because I want to make some decisions about the future but I'm playing the waiting game with these schools!
