Next to November, December is my favorite month. Previously I would have told you it was because of Christmas and the festivity that started up after my birthday month, but now it is also to celebrate the Enginerd’s birthday. Ever since we got married I have had the hardest time picking gifts for him, whether for Christmas, birthday, anniversary or any other time because he works and I stay at home and technically any money I spend is his own so the idea of getting a present he might not love, well that’s uncomfortable. This year I totally nailed it … Continue reading

It was about two years before AppleBlossom was born that I started blogging and I was a quilt blogger first, and then a book blogger. But when I became pregnant the first time all that changed as naturally I wanted to share the word about some fabulous products that I just fell in love with during my maternity months, and then soon after baby months. While in the two years since she was born I have come across some of my favorite products, by far my most favorite maternity product was something that I got to use during OrangeBlossom’s birth … Continue reading

Though she yearns for her pre-pregnancy figure, a new mother has little time to devote to exercise; attending to the needs of a newborn is a full-time job. A revolutionary postnatal fitness program, Pee Wee Pilates gives new mothers what no other fitness program or book has to date: a quick and proven method they can do at home to whip their postpartum body gently back into shape and enrich their babies at the same time.
Pilates targets the areas most affected by pregnancy (abdomen, hips, lower back, and buttocks), so new moms will get results fast without having to leave homes or carve out huge chunks of time. Simultaneously, because the baby is incorporated into the Pilates movements, women get to enjoy a loving and fun interaction with their babies. Unlike other mother/baby fitness programs, however, baby is far more than just a prop; the exercises in Pee Wee Pilates are designed specifically to help foster a little one’s development and attachment to mother. Developed by one of New York City’s leading Pilates teachers, Pee Wee Pilates promises to be the hot new “baby and me” exercise program for new mothers everywhere. Continue reading
Food, Inc. 2008 PG 94 minutes Drawing on Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation and Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma, director Robert Kenner’s Oscar-nominated documentary explores the food industry’s detrimental effects on our health and environment.

We just got back from going on a walk, we being our little family, Enginerd, AppleBlossom and myself. It’s Labor Day and so he’s home from work. This summer his group has been experimenting with different hours and arrangements and due to that several Mondays I have had him at home with us and I love every minute of that. (AppleBlossom does too, because she adores her daddy). That’s ending soon, but part of me wishes they would continue it. Supposedly there is a change he might be able to rearrange the time and even though he’ll work Monday through … Continue reading
