Our Weekend at Apple Hill

by jenna on September 29, 2014


Last Thursday night I had a somewhat crazy idea that I presented to Adam. Let’s book a last minute place and head over to Apple Hill for the weekend! Now, this would be something we wouldn’t have thought twice about in our “old life” {aka pre-baby}. We lived for spontaneous weekend getaways when we would explore all California had to offer.

However, we haven’t gotten out much since Grayson was born. Womp womp.

I mean, obviously we haven’t gotten out much! We had a newborn. It was just the season we were in and that was totally fine. But lately all of our weekends we’ve been doing the same ol’ thing of just sitting around the house all day. It was time to jump in and explore again! So explore we did. Read on—there’s more!


Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Soup

broccoli and cheese soup-8990

I am super excited to finally be able to share with you all of the dishes I made for Green Giant a few months ago! I’ll be sharing these yummy recipes over the next few Saturdays so keep a look out.

The main concern with these recipes (all that feature Green Giant’s new Steamers) is that they be EASY! Well, when they told me that I was sold because even at four months in with Grayson, I still am all about the easy dinner recipes. I don’t think that’s going to change any time soon. I feel like a bunch of you are probably in the same boat, regardless of if you have a baby or not. You could be rushing to an evening class, rushing to get the kids to sleep or just plain don’t like spending a ton of time in the kitchen. I get it. These are for you.

Grayson Allen: 4 Months

September 19, 2014

I can’t believe Grayson is four months old already! For awhile, when he was a newborn, it seemed like time was going by soooooooo slow. I was completely exhausted and running on fumes. Now, it seems like time is going by too quickly! Literally, sometimes he wakes up in the morning and seems like a […]

Skincare Favorites, Revised

September 16, 2014

I was one of those lucky ones who had really great skin my whole pregnancy! It’s after I had Grayson my skin got bleh. I’ve used the same products for years so I blamed hormones! Seriously, about four weeks after having him my face started to really break out in a terrible way. Nothing like […]

Canned Raw-Pack Tomatoes

September 11, 2014

You will use these tomatoes on everything. EVERYTHING. From pizzas, pastas, casseroles, chicken, grilled meat, shrimp dishes….I honestly can’t think of something they wouldn’t work on. Except maybe oatmeal. That would be weird. I mean, just think of how many times you run to the store to buy a big can of “whole peeled tomatoes” […]
