We got Baby Owl’s ears pierced.

In my experience, the topic of baby ear piercing has the potential to create some pretty heated arguments, at least in America. There are some who argue that it’s unfair to the baby, because it changes the baby’s body and she doesn’t get to make the choice herself. There are some who even suggest that […]


Getting Back to Budget: Can I Freeze It?

I promised myself no more food budget posts! But I can’t help it; my shopping experience has been revolutionized by owning a deep freezer and I have to share some of the stuff I’ve discovered!

The Trikester: 7 Month Update

Little Lion’s Nursery

Before we even found out we were going to have a baby, I had decided I wanted to use this nursery as my inspiration. I loved the bright colors, and since we will likely have more than one child sharing this room at one point, I loved that it was fairly gender neutral. And this […]
