Meg Goes Gardening

Our backyard has a new addition! Four new raised bed gardens! We purchased these cedar beds from a local Ann Arbor company called FarmWorks, and I’m extremely happy with them so far. . Yesterday my dad and the huz put a critter fence around the beds in an attempt to keep out the rabbits. I’ve … Continue reading

Before and Afters

Before and Afters

Hello friends! I wish I had more time for blogging – it’s so hard to keep everything balanced at this phase of life. Family, work, personal life, social life, health, hobbies. Seems like whenever I’m rocking in one area, the other areas suffer. Yes, there is still a good deal of cooking going on around … Continue reading

BabyGoesNomNom: 8-12 Months Old

Believe it or not, BabyGoesNomNom recently turned 18 months old! My baby bear is 1.5 years old. How did that happen!? With that said, now I’m going to finally post about a topic I’ve been wanting to share for quite some time now – my little guy’s recent eats! My previous post (er, from last … Continue reading

Winter, Wave Good Bye

Winter, Wave Good Bye

Well hello! It’s been a minute since my last post but today I thought I would share what we’ve been up to this winter. Today we are enjoying an unseasonably warm 60 degree day in February and it has been fantastic. I think it got me thinking that I should document winter, hope we’ve seen … Continue reading

Mikette–Happy Hour

Mikette–Happy Hour

Hey guys! Friday after work I got to go out and be MegGoesNomNom at Happy Hour for a bit, instead of just being BabyGoesNomNom’s Mama. Okay, I’m always BGNN’s mama and I love it, but sometimes it is nice to get and do some things sans-toddler as well. A co-worker joined me in checking out … Continue reading

Denny’s + Baby’s First Haircut

Denny’s + Baby’s First Haircut

You guys, I miss sleeping in. It’s pretty much an impossibility with a 14 month old who loves waking up early (thank goodness he likes getting up closer to 6:15 lately compared to 4:00-5:00am as a younger baby!) I know one day it’ll happen again. Love that kid. One thing that makes the weekend early … Continue reading

Fall Fun with my Cutie

Fall Fun with my Cutie

Do you ever just really feel like you won the jackpot? With this kid, I do. Somehow we ended up with the cutest, sweetest, funniest happy little guy. That’s not to say we don’t have challenging and frustrating moments each day, but at the end of each day, I really just feel like I don’t … Continue reading

Trying the CEO Burger at BurgerFi in Ann Arbor

Trying the CEO Burger at BurgerFi in Ann Arbor

Hello friends! Guess what I have for you today. A restaurant review! It’s been a while, I know. Heading into the unknown with a 13 month old can be a little daunting sometimes, so our restaurant adventures have been tamer and more infrequent as of late. However,  BurgerFi recently invited the family in to try … Continue reading

J’s First Birthday Party!

J’s First Birthday Party!

A couple weeks ago we had a party to celebrate J’s first birthday at our house. Since we moved into our new house last summer, this was the first real big gathering we’d had, so it was sort of a housewarming for us in a sense too. Though most of the party took place in … Continue reading

Jack’s Perfect Pumpkin Oats

Jack’s Perfect Pumpkin Oats

One of J’s most frequently consumed foods – since starting solids! – has been oatmeal. This kid has always loved oatmeal and eats it at least 5 of 7 days per week. Probably when he was around 7 months old I began giving him oatmeal. I milled the whole oats in my blender until they … Continue reading
