latest obsessions

ellieellie has an obsession with tortilla chips and spicy queso dip. so at church, when other moms bust out the goldfish crackers to get their little one to shut their mouth, i pull out tortilla chips.


our little swimmer is obsessed with his new speedo goggles. he is also in love with "hams". oh! you dont know what "hams" are?! well normal people refer to "hams" as a hammer. he can say hammer, but chooses to call them hams... i have no clue for the reasoning behind that one.

and of course, jack is still in love with fish, any fish, as long as its a big one! i have come to grips with the fact that he will never out grow this obsession, and thats ok.


i am head over heels for chick.fil.a's cookies 'n cream milkshakes....large ones! and i am utterly infatuated with The Pioneer Woman. she is freakin hilarious and i love love love her recipes. check her out at i have been glued to my computer, trying to read everything she has posted since 2006, which is a TON...why didn't anybody tell me about her sooner???? i'll be totally honest, at first i saw a little link of hers on a friends blog and i thought it was an lds lady that was posting food storage recipes. but then larissa sent me a link to one of her recipes, and ree drummond and i have been inseparable ever since!

isn't this the most lovely little blouse in the entire world! its the new silk frances cami from jcrew and i want one in every color. ive even told chris that our next daughter's name will be frances and we will call her franky, thats the power this top has!


since chris' birthday at the end of june, i think he has spent more time on his phone than off. at least he is getting his money's worth right! chris is also more addicted to publix rootbeer than ever before. when he gets a crazed look in his eye, i know we've run out and he might hurt someone if we don't drop what we are doing and get him some more...some more RIGHT NOW!!! chris also got a new macbook pro for school (which starts end of september). he's spending a lot of time figuring out all of the cool little tricks and gadgets its got. and, truth be known, the first night after chris got it, he went to work and i thought i would just check it out to see what all the hype is about. i didnt put it away until 2 hours later! that sucka rocks!!

I'm gonna have to kindly ask you to not have the kids do shout-outs anymore... I do nothing but watch them over and over to the major annoyance of my friends, roommate, and co-workers. JUST KIDDING!!! Keep um commin'! Thanks for thinking of me! : )

the pioneer woman rocks! i've tried about half of her recipes and every one has been fabulous! our favorites are spicy shredded pork, apple dumplings, and her chocolate sheet cake. there are a few other ladies out there in internet land that i'm also obsessed with, but i'll let you get through PW before sharing:)

I love reading your blog. You have a way with words, a way with fabric, a way with decor, a way with pictures, obviously a way with cooking. What are you not very good at?! I wish I was in your ward so I could rub shoulders with you a little more and learn a thing or two (and have a little fun as well)! Keep it up! Melanie
