For over a year now, I have been making Blue Apron https://www.blueapron.com/ meals. Blue Apron is a weekly meal subscription box where the recipe sheets and all ingredients in the right portions are included. You basically only have to have salt, pepper, and olive oil on hand. Anyone remember the Food Network host, Rachel Ray, and her constant mention of EVOO – extra virgin olive oil. I go through so much olive oil now. The meals are diverse, so it definitely gives us a nice variety. Samantha and Emily are not fans of Blue Apron – it does expose them to a wider mix of food options though. Desperately trying to make healthy meals for my family. I’m trying to get more fit too, but that’s another entry.
I now have two dancers. Does that make me a dance mom?!? I’ve never worn false eye lashes, but as my daughter advance within dance that’s an inevitable situation. At Samantha’s 2015 Nutcracker recital, the items required list included false eye lashes. Oh no! Knowing Samantha, she would not be thrilled about me gluing eyelashes onto her eyelids. Thankfully, the false eye lashes requirement was reassigned to lead roles and not the group ensembles. Goal is for my kids to be confident and happy dancers. I think we’re well on our way to achieving that objective.
Picking the family Christmas photo! This is a project that I all too often I wait until the holidays are in full swing to get my order in. There are so many companies out there that create fabulous Christmas photos, but my go-to shop is Costco. Costco’s Photo Center is reliable and convenient, most importantly the cost is quite competitive.
Our 2015 Christmas photo was taken at the backside of the Disneyland Sleeping Beauty castle. We had the right setting, our entire family, and we were up for snapping a few photos with our princesses – Samantha and Emily.
Now in a few months, I get to start the process all over again. What photo will make it as the standout annual holiday photo?!? Stay tuned…
