Thanks everyone for your well-wishes when I first posted about my stomach problems. Things took a turn for the worse. You’re not going to believe this. It was 10:30pm on Wednesday night. I took a tiny bite of a wheat-free muffin I had just made. Almost immediately, my stomach cramps came back. They came back […more]

Post image for The county fair {photos}

Because J (5 years old) is really into riding rides (he looooved Funland in Rehoboth), I took a half-day off of work, pulled J out of summer camp, and took him to the fair where he could ride to his heart’s content. I went on a weekday since there was a deal for a $15 […more]

Post image for Page Turners: The Princess Bride

It’s time to discuss The Princess Bride today! I’ve seen bits and pieces of the movie a handful of times, but am not a cult-follower, sorry. I didn’t even know it was a book until Shelly told me, and guess what. It was just alright. Wanna talk about why? I have 3 questions below, and […more]

Let’s play “Diagnose Lisa’s stomach pains” today! Here are the facts: I got a stomach bug at the end of July. Maybe I’m still feeling its effects? I started a wheat-free diet at the end of May. However, over the past two weekends, I indulged wheat-full. Bad idea, right? Maybe my body is in shock. […more]

Our son is starting kindergarten next week, and I no longer feel comfortable having photos of him (or my daughter) on a public space. I see so many big blogs posting photos of their kids, sometimes to shill products, and it makes me uneasy. I’m not a big blog and I’m not using my kids […more]

Post image for His & Her beer reviews: Old Bust Head English Pale Ale

I gave my husband an ale-vent calendar for Christmas last year and we’re finally getting around to drinking our 4th beer. What can I say? Alan likes to drink beer when it’s hot out. Here’s our review of the fourth beer in the lot. Enjoy! Description: Old Bust Head’s flagship brew, English Pale Ale blends […more]


If I were a toddler

by lisacng / 15 comments / Read comments or add one!

Kelli posted about back-to-school shopping, and I commented that I wish I could have new clothes and shoes every few months. That got me thinking how else my life would be awesome if I were a toddler. If I were a toddler… I’d have new clothes and shoes every 3-4 months. And since I’m a […more]

Post image for Best & worst of vacation

I was inspired by how Joyce summed up her vacation with just 8 highlights. So, here are the worst and best moments of our week in Rehoboth Beach, DE. The absolute worst: Our landlord for the vacation house. For your sanity, don’t ever rent from Jeff Kozak. He’s a real PITA. We got our full […more]
