Rowen {10 months}

Rowen is ten months old! 
  • crawls & pulls up
  • has 8 teeth
  • pat-a-cakes, waves bye-bye, blows kisses (and gives kisses), does "how big"
  • says mama, dada, hey, and hollers when you tell him too πŸ˜‚
  • enjoys any and everything (there's nothing this kids doesn't like) 
  • sleeps 12 hours at night and he recently started taking 2 naps a day 

He has grown soooo much in these past 10 months and he has the absolute best personality. He's so friendly and loving to everyone!! We're so blessed!  - Facebook post by Kayla

zero food waste [2]

[Zero Food Waste] I buy bags of frozen fruit, but I mostly cut up and freeze my left-over or over-ripe fresh fruit which is much cheaper. 

While I've always bought several containers of milk at a time and frozen, I just recently started freezing milk [that will soon go bad] in ice cube trays for smoothies or frozen hot chocolate. 

Easy strawberry-kiwi smoothie recipe: 
milk ice cubes
vanilla yogurt
frozen strawberries & kiwi
vanilla protein powder or honey [to sweeten]

{Zero Food Waste}

I usually make a big pan of Chicken Parmesan from scratch, but when you are cooking for one you have to get creative. I try to use up what I have in the fridge, so with leftover pizza sauce, a little mozzarella cheese, and some spaghetti noodles to work with, I made Chicken Parmesan for one! I breaded the chicken breast (cut in half lengthwise) with Panko bread crumbs /salt/pepper and pan fried. Then, I transferred it to a baking dish and topped with pizza sauce, mozzarella/parmesan cheese, and oregano. Served over spaghetti noodles--delish!

*SUMMER* Stitch Fix Box

Stitch Fix
Summer Box

So, my summer box arrived today and here's what I got......

(1) Diba Indio Suede Peep Toe Heel - $89

These shoes fit like a glove! Unfortunately, I don't wear too many heels and they were too pricey. They are super cute though!!

(2) Daniel Rainn Calisto Pleat Detail Tulip Sleeve Blouse -$64
I really liked this top - perfect fit, I like the keyhole neckline in front and the pleated detail in back. I think it would pair up nicely with a pair of olive skinny jeans and black sandals. I would have kept this but the tulip sleeves were cut up too high. I like a little sleeve in my tops.

(3) Market & Spruce Pardee Cross Back Detail Knit Top -$44

This top was super cute!! it was too short though for my style. It looked really good with the red skinny jeans up next.

(4) Warp & Weft Clare Frayed Hem Skinny Jean - $78

Cute - but they plain out just didn't fit! 

(5) Market & Spruce Derryl Applique Detail Linen Tunic - $68

It fit perfectly, I love the style! I think it will look great 
with olive or dark washed jeans plus black sandals. :O)

THOUGHTS: I was really happy, overall, with the items my stylist picked out for me. I liked all 5 pieces but really love the tunic I kept! 

Tunic = $68.00
   fee   - $20.00
                      $48.00 + tax
