My Life Lately

The Eats: Fruit crisps of all kinds. 
I've made the Betty Crocker fruit crisp (with a few variations of my own) so many times, I don't need to think about it. Toss in the fruit (apples, peaches, pears, plums, berries, whatever!), add a bit of lemon juice and agave nectar - toss to coat. Mix the brown sugar, oats, butter, cinnamon and flour together and crumble on top. Bake at 350 for 25 - 30 minutes and voila! The house smells like heaven as this bakes and Ike and I devour most of it in one sitting. A dollop of Greek yogurt on top adds the perfect bit of tang...

The craft:A little necklace for my sister's birthday. 
I had as much fun packaging it up with twine and a chevron print card as I did making it. 

The other craft: Tissue paper tassel garland. 
A dear friend of mine is about to have her first baby. She loved and supported me so well when I was expecting baby O, that I was more than happy to make a few decorations for her baby shower last month. Isn't this garland sweet? Kinda wanna make one of my babe's room. Tutorials are all over the web and super easy.

The trip: Home for my nephews birthday party. 
Just this past weekend, we flew home (baby O's first flight!) for my sweet nephews joint birthday party. They are two years and one month apart so my sister has taken to throwing one big party for both of them and it is a hoot! Loads of presents and food and aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, great grandparents and cake make for a merry time. Aren't they the cutest little family? Gosh, I love them. 

The Babe: Growing like a weed!
Our little guy is six months old today. What the?! He is such a riot. He's babbling and chatting up a storm, rolling from side to side, grabbing everything he can get his hands on and sleeping better at night more and more. The green onesie he had on a few mornings ago matched the green smoothie I made myself. He doesn't look too excited on that last picture. "Blended up spinach eh? Looks delicious. Not really." Keep an open mind kiddo! We're going to your six month check-up tomorrow to talk about introducing solids! You'll be drinking down one of these bad boys before you know it. 

That sums up things in my corner of world. What have you been up to? 


  1. loving your life lately. That apple crisp looks divine. I LOVE apple/pear/peach/ whatever crisp! Little O is so expressive. I would love to see him soon. XOXO

  2. Cute little guy but he really does look worried about green food! I think he's hoping for some of the fruit from that crisp ;)

  3. Oh my your little guy is such a sweetpea! Oh and crisps are my favourite too. xoxo Hope your Autumn is going amazingly well. xoxoxo
