My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

My new stove
I know it's often said and thought that women would not be happy to receive a new appliance. But for the most part, I don't fit that mold. As long as it's an appliance I want and would use, I'll take it. Heck, I'd love the roller ball Dyson even if it meant getting it for my birthday, Christmas or anniversary.

Our stove which is at least 10 years old (I'd put it at older than that) has only had 2 working burners for 6 months or more. With a family of 4, it's usually not an issue, but it made the holidays trickier. We have an electric stove and J has cleaned the components out multiple times which will only work for a short amount of time. He estimated it would cost about $80 to fix the 2 burners. So then came my boss. She's been remodeling her kitchen and it came out that I'd love a flat-top stove and she happened to have her old flat-top stove that was only a few years old. They were not keeping it because they went with stainless appliances. She sold it to us for $100. I can't tell you how excited I was - yes, over a stove. J had his work cut out for him since she obviously cooked dairy. There was a TON of cleaning involved before bringing it into our house, but it's really no different the stove we had before. That one used to be used for dairy as well - even by us.

J worked really hard to get the new stove cleaned and installed before Memorial Day as we had some friends over. It's nice to have stove top that is so easy to clean.

New stove - isn't she beautiful?

In other news, Alisa is giving away some new dairy-free chocolate bars that I'd love to try out. Go on over and take a peak.
