Did you know...

I just recently learned of Pandora. Have you heard of this? Did you know you can also download it to your iphone? I have been dying to listen to some new music. You know, shake things up a bit. Maybe, even possibly be hip to the music scene again. Not that there is anything wrong with knowing all of the latest and greatest in preschool music out there, but sometimes a person just craves an adult sense of self that includes a musical repertoire beyond childhood classics. I am really excited about this find. It makes me wonder what other wonderful things are happening out there that I don't even know about.
We are a television free family here. Yes, you read that correctly - television FREE! We love it and we have internet to offset the need for news and/or the occasional indulgence of an ABC show that you can watch for free online. There is just much to much out there that I don't want my little ones exposed to, but sometimes I miss the boob tube and it's endless possibilities of crappola to stifle my creativity and brain and just let me veg out into the nothingness of a good sitcom. Of course Netflix does help with that too. The benefits for our family far out way the costs of cable, but I still can't help but wonder if I am missing anything out there?

Farmer in the Dell

Don't you just love the Farmer's Market? It has become our weekly ritual to pile the kids into the bakfeits. Grab our reusable bags and ride on down to the Market. This week my bicycle basket was just begging for flowers to adorn it. I thought that these were perfect. I don't know the name of these flowers, but I heart them. The boys and I smell them every time we pass by them in the house and each time they say...mmmmm...smells good, Mom. And they are right. Heavenly to look at and to smell. Of course the fresh produce and delightful homemade specialty food that they have to offer is wonderful too. Organic and locally grown, really, what more could you ask for. Here is part of our dinner from the other night using fresh produce purchased at the market.

If you get the chance to support your local farmer please do so. It is better for you and better for the environment. Plus it is great fun trying all of the free samples.'s like Costco's free samples only better.
I had to show you this one last picture. When you peel an orange do you ever try to get the whole peel off in one try? I sometimes do and as I peeled this orange in one shot I discovered that it looked like a turtle. How funny is that!?! Just thought I would share. Too bad it didn't turn out to look like a famous person, portrait or religious figure as I could sell it on ebay and make my millions! HA!

Sunday Laundry Shirt Dress GIVEAWAY!!!!

I heart this dress Sunday Laundry Shirt Dress GIVEAWAY!!!!

So sorry I have been away for so long. I have been concentrating on my health. My acupuncturist is a miracle worker and the high grade probiotics have been working! I am feeling much better and able to return to my daily activities and exercising. I just put the exercising in there for good measure, because aside from chasing babies and going for walks to the coffee shop I have not been exercising at all. I will be back soon with more posts and inspiration. Did you know that March is spring cleaning month?? Apparently last month was decluttering and organizing and I seemed to have missed that memo. Oh well...there is always next month.
