10 Things I Love Sunday

Happy Sunday! I’m super excited about the ’60s tiki cocktail party that we are having this weekend, so I hope by the time you ready this it will have been a rousing success! We’ve done this party for six years now and this year we decided to add in a little tiki fun into the mix as well … 1. Totally want one of these for our car. 2. Got this huge faux agave plant for our home and I love it! It looks so pretty and real in person and I don’t have to worry about toddlers near it—yay! 3. This jacke...

this was a good week

This was a good week! Wanna see?• Alex made it through finals week (alleluia), the weather has turned lovely and springlike so we’re having some friends over for a barbecue this weekend, and we have bean sprouts! It’s all good.• Since we’re having a barbecue, I’m thinking of this salad — what do you think?• I guess this horse is a Star Wars fan?• These man-made, floating islands on Peru’s Lake Titicaca are beautiful.• ...

How to Go Out to Eat With a Toddler

Eating at restaurants is a big priority to us. I know many fellow moms who swear off eating out saying, “It’s not worth it.” Which I get … sometimes it is NOT worth it, hahaha. For my husband and I, though, as we both work from home, eating out is a necessity some days. We do eat at home more often than we did before Nova, but there are still many days when we finish our work and just need to get out of the house. When we were in China (adopting Nova), we basically ate out for every meal (mostly...

New Music: Robin Thicke “That’s What Love Can Do”

Late last month, Robin Thicke welcomed the arrival of his second child with girlfriend April Love Geary, a baby girl named Lola Alain Thicke. The newborn’s middle name pays homage to Robin’s father, Alan Thicke, who passed away in 2016. Lola is Robin’s third child after 1-year-old Mia Love Thicke with Geary, and his 8-year-old son Julian Thicke with his ex, Paula Patton. With a new album on the way later this year, Robin decides to drop off a new single called “That’s What Love Can Do.” Produ...

10 Things I Love Sunday

Oh man, I was out for the count for several days last week due to a stomach flu sort of thing, but I’m sure by the time you read this I’ll be fully back to health! Nothing like a virus to make you appreciate the days you don’t feel sick and the sun always seems brighter and the birds sound chirpier (is that a word?) once you are back on your feet, am I right?? Here’s what else I’m loving this week … 1. I immediately got this pillowcase after reading Keely’s amazing post on skin and sleep routin...

Ikea Hack: Star Toddler Learning Tower DIY

OK, OK, so I remember the first time I saw one of these “learning towers” a few months ago and my parent brain just about exploded with the thought of “that’s exactly what we need!!” At 21 months, Lola is like most toddlers in that she mentally and emotionally starts to deteriorate around 4 p.m., so making dinner can be super difficult since she either wants you to hold her the whole time or hangs out right between my legs pulling on me as I try to cook—not the easiest way to made dinner, for s...

16 Cool People I Met At Pollstar Live! [Kosha Dillz]

Ricky Williams on his fateful Celebrity Big Brother choice

Ouch. Ricky Williams dominated down the stretch in Celebrity Big Brother, winning the last two Head of House competitions as well as the final veto challenge. But in the end, he couldn’t even get a single jury vote for his efforts. Ricky was shut out against Tamar Braxton, who won the season unanimously while the former Heisman winner and NFL star was left with the $50,000 runner-up prize. How does Ricky feel about being swept? Does he regret not taking Dina Lohan or Lolo Jones to the end instea...

10 Things I Love Sunday

Happy Sunday! Valentine’s Day week is always a bit of a bright spot in an otherwise dreary and looooong month, so I say bring on the pink and all things sweet! 1. This bedding set! 2. I love that we got a taste of spring this week after that polar vortex blew through. Especially with a kid that lives for being outside, life feels extra happy when the sun is shining and she can run around and play in the grass. We went to the park and I showed her how to draw with chalk in the driveway—she loved...

Lion Face Pancake For Kids!

I feel like we are just getting into the “fun food” stage with my toddler, Lola. Up until a certain point, you can totally shape their meal into a face or make a sandwich look like a penguin or whatever, but you are going to get no reaction at all from them because they are still too little to even notice or recognize the effort! Lola is getting pretty good now at pointing at pictures or drawings of animals that she sees out and about and making the sound that corresponds with the animal. So I ...

Comment on breakfast apple granola crisp by Lola

I’ve made this recipe multiple times as written and it always turns out wonderful (though I always need to cover it with foil to avoid over-browning). Last night I made it with 2lbs of apples, the as written amount of granola topping (plus a few tablespoons of flax meal), and baked it in in an 8×8″ pan. The granola topping was very thick, but amazing as always.

10 Things I Love Sunday

Hello, lovelies! We had the sweetest belated Christmas with my family last week, so I am feeling full of good cheer and ready to dive into the new year to make it our best one yet! 1. I spent my Christmas vacation last month using this tutorial to make Lola a little faux fur coat out of some snow leopard fabric, and it makes me so happy every time she wears it out (you can see the quick version of making the coat on my IG story highlights). I love matching with her (as you can see from above), ...

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind’

Though he’s played antic roles such as Lola in “Kinky Boots,” master actor Chiwetel Ejiofor’s most conspicuous characteristic is his air of soulful gravitas. That’s a quality that aims to dominate his feature directorial debut as well. But “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind,” which dramatizes Malawian engineer William Kakwamba’s youthful struggle to save his […]

The Punisher Season 2 Episode 1 Recap

The Punisher Season 2 Episode 1 Recap Frank Castle is a travelling man as The Punisher season 2 begins. We meet up with Frank at Lola’s Roadhouse, a country bar somewhere in Michigan. When a drunk guy gets a little too handsy with the bartender, Beth, Frank intervenes–non-violently. Among the others we meet at Lola’s are Ringo, the bouncer (who dispatches the drunk with ease), and a nervous young lady with an attitude who Frank identifies right away as someone in trouble. ...

'Captain America: The First Avenger' Stands Out in a Glut of Comic Book Films

None Discussions of the mythical "superhero fatigue" were in full swing in the summer of 2011, and the concept has been raised every time a superhero film is considered a critical or commercial disappointment. The basis of superhero fatigue is the idea that audiences will grow tired of the neverending glut of big-budget comic book films, and will stop seeing them en masse. It's quaint to think of film bloggers in 2011 foretelling the imminent implosion of the genre when, seven years later, mega...

Overnight Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding (it’s Vegan!)

When it comes to dessert, my top things on my food wishlist are something that’s tasty, healthy and easy. If you’ve never made chia seed pudding before, then you’re in for a treat, as it is all those things and you can switch up the flavors pretty easily by different mix-in options and toppings. When you add chia seeds to liquid, they will soak up the liquid and expand adding a gelatinous texture that’s great for making puddings and jams. Since this time of year leads to all things pumpkin, I t...

10 Things I Love Sunday

First Sunday of the new year! It was so fun to have a holiday season where Lola was old enough to be totally into the Christmas morning unwrapping activities (and my sister’s family that we spent the holiday with were kind enough to let her help unwrap all their presents, too!) and now we are past the glow of the holidays and settling into the dreariness that is “regular” winter. No more magical “holiday” winter … just the cold and dark part now until spring hits. One big bright spot this past ...

Injection to halt the progress of Alzheimer’s 'available within decade'

An injection capable of halting the progress of Alzheimer’s could be available to patients within a decade, Britain’s leading dementia organisation predicts. The Alzheimer’s Society says a series of recent breakthroughs in treatments that disrupt harmful genes has brought scientists to a “tipping point” in their fight against the disease. For decades, researchers have sought without success a treatment for Alzheimer’s based on targeting damaging proteins that build up in the brain. However, the ...

Mommy + Me Craft: Magnetic Christmas Tree

The holidays have been extra fun this year with our little toddler around to “ohhh” and “awww” over the tree, ornaments, and lights. While some of the decor is more kid-friendly this year (we have a little Lola tree with plush ornaments on it just for her to play with), I also wanted to do a fun holiday craft with her that she could participate in. So I decided to make a magnetic tree with ornaments she could paint and move around on the fridge, and it was so much fun! Supplies: –self-laminati...
