Hi! I'm a mother to two sour patch kids, military wife, stay at home chef and a mediocre blogger of my crazy life.
Yesterday was my 33rd trip around the sun. We celebrated by walking through old town, gifts from family, cake my daughter wrote on, going to the rattle snake museum, a new set of knives from @flyingsharkknives and ended with beers and sushi. All and all it was a perfect day.  #gettingoutofthepickle  #notgettinganyyounger  #happybirthdaytome  #newsetofkicks  #knivesarealwaysawinner  #gettingoldisweird

I love making challah. Simple, beautiful and delicious! Bread baking has been a fun hobby for me. I enjoy all the different techniques and the time it takes. It makes me stop and smell the bread. Maybe when we get into some holidays I'll offer to sell some..... not sure yet.  #gettingoutofthepickle  #baking  #challahatme  #braidsfordays  #hobbiesthatmakeyoufat

Lily wanted to bring some Rosh Hashanah treats to her teacher. He gets some honey cookies and a little jar of honey. I would bet those cookies will not look like that when she gets to school haha. Oh well, its the thought that counts!  #gettingoutofthepickle  #roshhashanah  #applesandhoney  #shanatova

Kept both my girlys at home today. They have mild colds, but wanted to be sure it didn't get worse. They have been pretty good today with eating and resting. I'm sure tomorrow they will be back to normal and ready to sieze the day!
Catching colds or getting sick is your body's way of saying slow down. It's hard to slow down when our lives are in constant motion. Take the hint.

Today we took a trip to one of my favorite markets and came a cross rambutan! These are so fun and tasty. I had to get some for the girls to try. Riley approves! I can't wait for Lily to try and see what she thinks. Its always important to try new things even if they look different. You never know, it might become a new favorite!  #gettingoutofthepickle  #trynewthings  #rambutan  #differentisntscary

Today we did some eye hand coordination making necklaces! I am starting to get back into a more normal rhythm in my weekly routine. 
With that said, we will have more Preschool learning during the day. Lots of fun themes, books, crafts and the great outdoors!

This is 3! Riley had her 3rd birthday this weekend. She is sweet, sassy, and a good time Sally. You can't help but love her. She is a girl who knows what she wants and is very clear about what she doesn't. I can't wait to see what she makes of this year. We are so proud of her and know she will do amazing things.
Keep smiling Smiley Riley ❤.  #gettingoutofthepickle  #smileyriley  #happybirthday  #3rdbirthday  #goodtimesally  #lovemygirls

The school year is now in session! Lily started her 1st day of third grade. I think this will be a great year for Lily. She decided she wants to try some new things this year. She wants to take archery lessons and had about 8 inches of her hair cut off. She is still in cubscouts and has her kick off kickball game with her pack this Saturday. 
I hope she stays adventurous and willing to try new things. She's amazing and I can't wait to see what this year has in store for her. Good Luck Lily!  #gettingoutofthepickle  #1stdayofschool  #3rdgradehereshecomes  #archery  #scoutmein  #cutitalloff  #welcomeback

I wanted to take a second to brag about my 8 year old daughter. Lily has been really working on herself. She has finally taken up our offer to pay her to do chores. She has been doing them and has been learning the value of earning something. 
Lily is strong willed and determined. I love her, even though we fight and bicker constantly. I hope she keeps her strong will, but man is it hard to parent sometimes!
She has come along way. I am very proud of her and the strides she has made.
This year she starts 3rd grade. We are trying hard to finish summer reading (lets be honest, they said read 20, yes 20, books in your reading level-thats insane), slowly but still trying! 
She is apart of a new scout pack this year and gets to hopefully meet her fellow scouts this Saturday at the bike rodeo! She is very excited to be a bear scout this year. 
She has also decided to give ballet a break and try her hand in archery. If she doesn't like it, she can always go back to ballet, if she wants to.
I'm super proud of my girl and can't wait to see how she tackles this year!  #gettingoutofthepickle  #proudmompost  #justbraggingaboutmykid  #girlmom  #strongwilledgirl  #makinggreatstrides  #loveher  #archery  #shecandoit
