faces of evelyn

Evie slept until 6am today.  It was awesome.  And yesterday,  she took a great nap while I went shopping (and scored this onesie and more for 97 cents!).

She does love all her grandmas.

back in my day...

Hospital pictures have come a long way. They used to be almost like baby mug-shots. My parents never bought them.

Here's what they are like now:

I felt really pregnant, but mostly just looked chubby.

Goodbye, beautiful Tetons, see you next July!

I never did share pictures from our July trip to Yellowstone and Jackson Hole. Well, we're halfway to the next trip, so I thought I'd finally post them! A must have had the camera most of the time, I don't have many pictures of him from the trip!

love story.

You guys. Let me just tell you. I love almond milk. It is so delicious. Lately I've been making smoothies with it that are more like milkshakes than smoothies. It is especially decadent with the sweetened vanilla almond milk, though still delicious with the unsweetened.

Version 1:

1 cup almond milk
1 or 2 handfuls of spinach
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 scoop ground flax (optional)

Add all ingredients to blender, blend until smooth. Serves one.

Version 2:

1 cup almond milk
1 banana
1 or 2 handfuls of spinach
2 T peanut butter
1 scoop ground flax (optional)
4 ice cubes

Add all ingredients to blender, blend until smooth. Serves one.


I also eat it on either oatmeal or Ancient Grains Granola (from Costco) every morning.

For the oatmeal:

1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup blueberries
1 scoop ground flax
1 handful walnuts
almond milk, to taste
salt

In a bowl, combine water, oats, blueberries, and a few shakes of salt. Microwave 2-3 minutes, or until oats are cooked. Add flax and walnuts, stir, and top with almond milk.

For the granola:

I top my granola with a handful of walnuts, a handful of dried cranberries, a sliced banana, a scoop of flax, and almond milk. Enjoy!

5:00 pm and she was here












Of course, there were more pictures, but I don't want to overwhelm you. Not pictured? The wonderful Corissa, who came and captured this life changing event, despite having a difficult week in her own family. I'm so glad she was there, and I love the photos.
