Tamales, fake snow and a Tuna Christmas

Saturday my family and I went to Pearl Brewery for the inaugural Tamales at Pearl. Tamales are very important to the people of San Antonio, so I wasn’t at all surprised to find that a huge crowd of people showed up. It was a beautiful day; sunny, cool and breezy. I love winter in San…

Typical Wednesday night dinner

I thought I’d share what a typical dinner looks like at my house. Most of you know that my Husband and son eat an omni diet and I don’t. At mealtime our table typically has a lot of different foods on it. Here is what our dinner looked like tonight. Ignore the Legos in the…

Thanksgiving recap

Hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving. Ours was very good, but I was glad to spend a quiet day at home today without any company. It always takes so long to clean up after a meal like that. My menu was slightly different then I originally planned. I ran out of time so I…

Movie night and thinking about death

Yesterday we had another family movie night, I really like this tradition a lot, It’s a great way to start the weekend. It seems like we are always picking movies with dogs in them, what can I say we are animal lovers. Last week we watched Marmaduke and last night we watched Balto, my son…

After school fun

Sleeping beauty

My son is really into making paper airplanes so today we decided to eat ice cream cones and fly airplanes. In an effort to eat more of the same food I bought myself some dairy free ice cream and we both had a cone. He was so excited, way more excited for it then I…

Please don't pick on my diet

This weekend was a little rough for me, I felt like it was meat eaters vs. plant eaters at times. Especially when my husband and son made their bacon and egg breakfast tacos on Sunday. I try not to separate myself from the guys when they eat meat, but I really, really, really don’t like…

A house full of stuffy noses

There is a lot of sneezing and coughing going on at my house. I’m finally all better and now my son and husband have caught something that I’m hoping not to catch. Netti pot and green juice to the rescue. I like to use my Netti pot this time of year as preventative medicine.  My…

Delicious raw dinner after a long week

It has been a long week, my husband was traveling and my son and I had a little too much togetherness. I’m really looking forward to Tuesday, I love my weekday routine and I desperately need some peace and quiet. I’m sure my son is looking forward to going back to school as well. This…

National Night Out Day

Today is National Night Out Day and we went out. Our local fire station had crafts for the kids, lots of snacks, goodie bags and even a clown that talked to the kids about safety. My son enjoyed looking at a real firetruck up close. I took home a child identification kit, it’s small enough…

Happy 70th Dad!

I celebrated my Dad’s 70th birthday not too long ago with most of my siblings, their children and spouses. I can’t believe my Dad is 70, he looks and acts much younger. It was so great to have my nephews and my beautiful niece running around the house playing and having fun. We cooked a…
