Meet Mommy Monday.

Welcome to this weeks, Meet me Monday!!!!
1. Where do you escape to when you've had enough?
I go to my mom, no matter where she is I go to her.  She is my best friend and can talk me down when I am about to loose my shit. I mean that in the nicest way ever to be able to go to her.  If it is a place, it would have to be Cannon Beach I love it there and hope that one day the boys and Hubs and I get to move there.  
 2. What shows are you watching this fall? 
Once Upon a time, Two broke girls, House, up all night, 
Up all night gives me hope I wont mess up either of my boys as much as I thought it would.

3. What was the longest roadtrip you've ever taken and where did you go?
When my parents too me to Disney through vegas, Palm springs, Arizona and ended up in Lake Tahoe. It was the last big family trip we took I was 14 and was loving life. 
4. Do you plan on taking your kids to Disney World?
As many times that I can... I will make my boy's be as Disney crazy as me!
5. What is something people would surprised to know about you?
that I don't like to sleep with any lights coming in unless its day time then it is no big deal at night. I also I didn't want a PB&J for years hated them then I tried it and I was like holly crap that is good!!

Tempt my tummy Tuesday

Hey Babies, 

Mommy is going to make yummy food for you, when you are old enough.  Today Auntie Erin and I went to the craft store and we found the fabric and the patterns for the cloth diapers that Mommy wants to make and Auntie Erin bought the book for me!! I am going to be a domestic goddess and try to be the best mommy you could ever have. 

                  It's tempt my tummy Tuesday!!!

1 acorn or butternut squash

1 step. Cut acorn or butternut squash in half, scoop out seeds

2nd. step Place halves face down in a pan and cover with an inch of water

3rd step Bake in a 400 degree oven for 40 minutes to 1 hour - be sure the “shell/skin” puckers and halves feel soft then scoop squash “meat” out of the shell

4th. step Place squash "meat" into your choice of appliance for pureeing and begin pureeing.

5th Step. Add water as necessary to achieve a smooth, thin consistency.

You can also peel the squash, scoop out the seeds and then cut into chunks and boil/steam until tender (like when boiling potatoes for mashed potatoes) then follow steps 4 and 5 - this way is most difficult however and rather time consuming. Make sure you make enough for you to enjoy!! We always add apples to ours and then some brown sugar! These foods are good for 4-6 month olds and can be frozen easily!

You can also do my favorite tip add these in a Ice cube tray so that 
its the perfect amount for your babies!!! < Enjoy! <

Tempt my tummy Tuesday

Hey Babies, 

So today is tempt your tummy Tuesday and because I am starting to make your baby food and freeze it I thought that is where I will start this weekly blog post so lets tempt your tummy!

I have been collecting used baby food jars, cleaned and after the apple sauce was made, Because this is for the babies I didn't ad sugar, they wont need it and if I or my husband want to add some sugar we can to taste later.  If you are going to do this as baby food make sure you leave some room for it to freeze and un freeze so it wont break the glass.  Have fun!! Next week smashed Nannas! :) 
(thank you photobucket for the pictures)
  • 4 apples - peeled, cored and chopped
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup white sugar ( I left this out )
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions * You can also do a few different ways depending on what you want to do. I have tried them all but this is a personal choice.*

  1. In a saucepan, combine apples, water, sugar, and cinnamon. Cover, and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are soft. Allow to cool, then mash with a fork or potato masher. 
  2. This time I used the 30+ lb bag of apples from our apple tree that NEED to get used up so I took a chance and QUADRUPLED this recipe. My only change I used a more apples than called for (6-7 apples X 4). I now have an economical recipe for applesauce that tastes wonderful and EVERYONE loves! 
  3. I have often used my slow cooker. It takes about 4-41/2 hours on high. There is no need to mash the apples, they mushed on their own. 

Meet me Monday...

Hey Babies, 

We just came to the 26th week mark on Saturday. I can not believe how close we are getting to holding each of you....Next Saturday is the first of four showers that are being thrown in your honor. We are looking forward to seeing all those cute baby boy stuff. 

I'm trying to be a better blogger both on here and on my Kingstongirl blog. So please bare with me as I try to put things together. 

        So welcome to meet me Monday!

1. What do you do when you have time to yourself?
When I have time to myself I go to the beach or a long drive.  I don't really like time by myself I love to be with someone most of the time. I love spending time with my hubs. But if I wanted time by myself that long drive would turn into a day rain, snow, sun, I wouldn't care what the weather is like, as long as I end up at the Ocean. 

2. When you look out your kitchen window, what do you see?
I see my beautiful view of the inlet of the Hood canal and the foulweather bluff. I see my back yard and my deck that in the summer get's more sun then anywhere else. I love this window and looking out it makes doing the dishes ( we do not have a dishwasher)  I look forward to watching the boys play for hours in this back yard as I do the dishes.
 3. Who/What would you want to be reincarnated as?
I would want to be reincarnated as my dog Sophie, no other dog has ever been so loved. She is missed everyday. I would want to make sure  that my parents would own me if I did come back as Sophie. I would love to just eat and sit and have my tummy rubbed, I loved Sophie so much and I would do anything to have her back. I miss her every day but yes she is who I would want to come back as. 

 4. What is your biggest pet peeve about other people's kids?
No manners, when kids have no manners it is like fingers to the chalk board. When children don't answer adults that ask them a question not to mention, that they don't take the time to look up from that video game.
5. Regular or Diet soda?

Diet coke. It is at least a 6 can a day at least habit. I have been this bad for years. I can stop but two days into stopping I get a bad headache and so I would rather keep drinking it! Despite the warning signs.
