Dan dan noodles, also known as dan dan mien, is a traditional Chinese Sichuan dish. With a name like “dan dan,” how could you not be curious and want to try the dish, right? I know I’m not alone on this one. When Diana of Appetite for China asked me to participate in her Virtual […]

Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai! When I think of Chinese New Year, I think of family and food. Ah food, glorious food, it’s hard to beat the Chinese New Year feasts. But for me, the best part of the new year meals would be a bowl of tang yuan. Tang yuan (glutinous […]

One of my favorite things to have for breakfast is oatmeal in the mornings with my rice milk, cinnamon and bananas. But, not when the bananas start looking like this: I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty picky about my bananas. I like them with a slight bit of green left at the top […]

It appears as though the impossible has happened: I have become a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom), sort of. And I am okay with that, sort of. I was always one to put career first, with no children as far as the eye could see. Even though it was in my “life plan” to have […]

Back in the blogging saddle! Someone should have really warned me about how tough and time consuming it would be when becoming a mom.

Having dogs will prepare us for having a baby. Oh, silly me. What was I thinking. Taking care of a human (and we are only finishing up the first month) is about 3,564,892 times more difficult than taking care of a puppy.

Fall is my most favorite season of the year. I love just about everything that come with this season: the chill in the air, sweaters and jackets getting pulled out of the closet, college football and leaves changing color. The only thing that could possibly make it better would be if summer fruits were still […]

We’re nearing the due date for Little C and a combination of exhaustion and mommy brain has the best of me. Things are ready for the baby’s arrival, the nursery is organized, the car seat is installed and the hospital bags are packed. So, I’m spending the majority of my days taking advantage of the […]

Showered with Love

September 18, 2012

As you could probably tell from my lack of posting on this blog lately, I have been busy! In less than a month, I will be a mommy – to a human baby. It hasn’t completely sunk in yet, but I know my life is about to turn upside down. But, I have high hopes […]
