A Healthier Version of Egg Salad

Sprittibee's Egg Salad

I have always loved egg salad. I used to go in and request it at Jason’s Deli even though it wasn’t on the menu and they would sometimes make it for me, depending on the location. Eggs and I have had a rocky relationship in the past, and I realized after learning more about eating […]

In Sickness and Health

I began this post a few days ago… but life gets away from you. For the past week, I’ve been falling in to bed too tired to even check Instagram or Lift (not usual for me). Blogging has been on the backest of back burners. Sorry, friends. And so, I offer you this boring list […]

Random Things You Might Want to Know

Cats like empty book cases. No, seriously. They do. In case you were wondering what your floor might look like without carpet… now you know. That’s the cheap padding. My toenails are pink.

Nature as a Teaching Tool

I have been inspired by so many other great nature-loving homeschool bloggers to join in the fun and begin our own nature journals. We have added nature walks to our list of “to-do” items each day since my schedule re-vamp… but sadly, we haven’t been walking. I think we will start today. I’m eager to […]

Even in the cold months, there are grasses and flowers in bloom somewhere in Texas. The weather is sure to change on a dime; and you never know if you’ll be wearing a sweater or a tank top in the winter months. We Texans whine about the weather and wish for the cool fronts when […]
