Random Ramblings: March Edition.

  • Hello, bloggers.  I've been MIA.  We've been busy.
  • I turned the big 3-3.  Holy hell, that seems old.  Almost mid-thirties. My birthday day itself, was pretty uneventful.  Travis sent me flowers, brought home ice cream cake and a good bottle of wine.  That weekend we celebrated with my sisters and some friends.  We rented a limo and went up to Swiftwater for a great meal and cocktails.  
  • We bought land!  As in 2 acres of land that we get to build a home on!!!  Just a few miles down the road, across the street from the elementary and high school!  Building won't start for another year or so.  Travis is going to work on the plans with an architect, then we'll get an idea of how much saving we have to do.  I am so excited. We've outgrown this house and now I know exactly what I want.  I guess it's time to start pinning.  Seriously, beside getting married, having kids, being able to build a home is something I have always wanted to do.  Thank God I married the best builder around!!!
  •  Travis left last week on a last minute trip to Arizona.  I was left on Sunday-Thursday ALL by myself.  Luckily I survived! 
  • Kids are on spring break this week.  Which means I might loose. it.
  • I hate figuring out what to make for dinner every night.   I used to love to cook and now I hate it.  Between picky kids and trying to eat super healthy, I am stumped.  I swear, I make soup every night.  Either that or turkey meatballs.  Or sometimes, I'll just pop in chicken nuggets, while I eat something else.  It's so annoying.  I've been finding sneaky ways to get some veggies into their mouths.  I always stick handfuls of spinach, flax seed, and chia seeds in their smoothies.  Spinach in meatballs.  Carrots and celery in tomato sauce.  I really love pureed soups.  You saute onions, and add chicken broth, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, and broccoli, blend it up and add cheese.  It's super easy and really healthy!
  •  I got a sewing machine for Christmas and I finally took it out of it's box.  Watched some youtube videos and got it all set up and started sewing away....well, fixing Presley 101 princess dresses that are holding on my a thread because they are worn 24 hours a day.
 Well, that's all I got.  I still have to download all the pics from the twin's birthday party and Hawaii.  Terrible, I know.

How exciting that you bought land! I am always trying to convince my husband to move to Ellensburg so we can buy some land a build a house. So he needs to figure out how to run his business over there and Whole Foods, PCC and Metropolitan Market all need to figure out how to be there as well. lol
