Scenes from the Week


1. Working on my ebook! Stay tuned :)
2. I got to film some segments for the local news about healthy breakfast ideas for kids! You can see the first two clips here:

Columbus Ohio News, Weather  
Columbus Ohio News, Weather

3. Love Grown Foods released a new product! Super Oats!! They have oats, chia seeds, quinoa and amaranth, plus some nuts and seeds in one version. Best part? They are sodium-free and sugar-free!
4. Best time of the year: $0.50 red peppers at the farmer’s market


1. Abner soaking up the sun
2. Love this little guy
3. Get up mom, so I can use your whole pillow!
4. Trouble with a capital T. I’ll spare you the closeup pic but last week we found a perfectly circular wound on Tucker’s shoulder. We thought it was a pellet gun wound because it was a perfect circle…or perhaps even a parasite. After taking him to the vet we found out it was just a puncture wound…probably from a nail or something under our deck. He’s healing up nicely!


1. Sometimes I forget how big my sunglasses are! But I still love them :)
2. I’m excited to be writing for the brand new Fit Columbus magazine. The first publication was just released. You can read the articles I wrote here:
What Organic Really Means 
Quick, Healthy Breakfast Ideas
3. Snuggles
4. Finally restocked on some of my necessities…Quaker Oats and avocados!


This is what happens when a tupperware container gets stuck to the bottom of your pan and you unknowingly put it in the oven. It melts through the rack and all over the bottom of the oven. Whoops!

  9. This is one of several times lately I’ve seen articles about going from Blogger to WordPress. It seems like (to bloggers) that if WordPress was a steak dinner, Blogger would be a hamburger.

    Do you think that WordPress is a lot better than Blogger? I’ve thought about switching over, but I really haven’t had any problems with Blogger so why fix what’s not broken?
