Family Life {Try New Adventures Thursday!}

This past week, we've been having everyday sort of adventures. Nothing earth-shattering, just trying to take care of my boys, love those around us, and keep house. With my 2nd trimester good health, we've settled into a routine that works, and it's amazing how much simpler life has been. I'm enjoying it now...I know it will all change when the baby comes (I'm due in exactly 3 months!).

This week we..

Had old neighbors (that have just moved back) over for dinner and I made homemade baguettes. Super yummy! Other than adding way more flour (and some wheat flour), I followed the recipe exactly. We enjoyed our friends company and are happy they are just around the corner again. P.S. Yes, I did feed them more than just baguettes.

Hung out with a new neighbor who has a really interesting background--she's from Ethiopia but was raised in Israel. We're swapping recipes and stories, and our boys (only a week apart in age!) have been playing together. I'm really thankful that this neighbor just moved in our little village...she's a stay-at-home-mom, which is rare in our population of neighbors! I think we'll see a lot of each other.

Lastly, we spent time together as a family. Gosh, I love my boys. We had a riveting adventure this weekend when we went out for pizza as a family (Squishy thought he'd died and gone to heaven), followed by a trip to Target for closet organization items. You've got to live on the wild side every once in a while, ya'll.


I'm scheming up some crafty adventures in my head...mainly to do with pictures and memory keeping. I really want to do something cute with a lot of my Instagram photos, but I'm not sure what. Any ideas?

  1. Thanks for hosting. Our trips to the mountain are an adventure each time we go.

  2. The baguettes look amazing! How interesting your new neighbor must be - you must have so much to talk about!

  3. That bread looks delicious! I really need to get over my fear of yeast. That'll be a TNAT post if I ever do.

  4. Pizza! Yum! Norm just did a review of Chicago Fire, one of the yummy places we went to eat at on our trip.

    Sounds like you have lovely and interesting neighbors. Fun!

  5. Whew. Finally got my post together. Better late than never, right?
