Mean Girls the Musical was so FETCH! The set design and dancing were really innovative and super fun and high energy. Since I normally go to bed so early I was honestly worried I might get sleepy during the show but the energy was infectious! We even went for drinks at the Willard Hotel afterwards (where the term “lobbyist” was coined). 💕💕💕 So thankful for a fun jaunt up to DC.! Thank you to @bravocowboy for the invite, for @allisonkasic for a place to stay, and for @boboroshi watching the kids. I do not take it for granted that I can leave my house without leaving detailed instructions and my hubs just knows what to do.
Flashback to a year ago and a ONE WEEK OLD Teddy Laine. ❤️. It’s been two weeks since I last nursed Teddy and I’m over here looking at her newborn pics, using peppermint and sage essential oils like WOAH, and I’m all 😭. (Btw fellow mamas, how long did it take your milk to dry up?! It only took a few days after each of the boys, but I’m two weeks out and I’m no longer uncomfortable but I’m definitely still in...limbo.) For interested parties, I shared some longer form thoughts on nursing and weaning over at the farm blog - link in profile!
Spicy goat stew 🐐😋❤️💥 Brown 3 pounds of goat stew meat in a hot pan with coconut oil. Transfer the meat directly to the slow cooker w a slotted spoon. Sauté one yellow onion, 4 cloves of garlic, and a tablespoon of ginger in the pan for five minutes. Deglaze the pan w a can of full fat coconut milk (in a pinch you can use almond milk and an additional 2 tablespoons of coconut oil - don’t ask me how I know). Add 3 tablespoons of fish sauce, a small jar of tomato paste, 4 drops of lime essential oil, and a full jar of Thai chili paste. Spoon the sauce and onion mixture over the meat in the slow cooker. ⏲⏲⏲⏲ Cook on low for eight hours. ⏲⏲⏲⏲ In the last hour add chopped carrots and/or broccoli. ⏲⏲⏲⏲ Serve over jasmine rice. YES WE ATE ONE OF OUR GOATS. 😱😳😫😋
Happy Halloween 2017! #starwars #starwarsfan #spaceballs #stormtrooper #ewok #darthvader #princessleia #familycostume #familytheme #halloween2017
Happy first birthday Teddy Laine! 🎂 My stringbean baby with your dainty features and gestures, it seems like you’re destined for ballet (a mama can dream). You are a good natured baby but when you holler - ooooweee! Your father thinks you could make money as a scream queen someday as you frequently pierce our ear drums. You looove peekaboo and your current fave books are Peekawho and Where’s Baby’s Pumpkin. You love bath time and being clean and hate poopie diapers and getting dressed. We are so thankful God blessed us with you. 💕 #firstbirthday #teddylaine #babygirl #smashcake #peekawho #heirloomquilt

Birthday girl is helping me bake her cake. Lord knows I’m not the best baker but with the help of this box, farm fresh eggs, goats milk, and lemon essential oil, I’m hoping to pull off a simple smash cake for her 💕 Stay tuned for more baby lovin’! #teddylaine #firstbirthdaycake #firstbirthday
Home in more ways than one. We had a lovely kid free jaunt down to Florida for a wedding but I think 2.5 days is my limit for being away from my babies! I wanted to squish them so bad. Tomorrow is Teddys first birthday so my dad came for a visit and my inlaws are coming tomorrow. I cannot believe my baby is a year old! 😱 Here’s my daddy pushing his grandsons on the swing he got them last Christmas. Get ready for babyspam tomorrow!
