Our House... the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our ...

Our house it has a crowd

Theres always something happening
And its usually quite loud
Our mum shes so house-proud

Nothing ever slows her down

And a mess is not allowed...

I love the 80's! You guys know this song?

Holy shamoly! I seriously have the most amazing friends and family! Our housewarming party was so much fun yesterday! It was quite busy trying to put everything together and get all cleaned up, but it was excellent motivation at the same time. I kept looking around thinking, "Dang, my house looks SO nice!" I'm a big fan of a place for everything and everything in it's place, but that so rarely happens in real life--it was nice to have all my shizz in order for at least a couple of hours :)

I made lots of food, and people brought yummy stuff, too. I didn't get the chance to take any pictures though, because I didn't have much of a chance to eat, either. My mouth was too busy jabbering to slow down for any food consumption! Here are some pics of my party people. We invited everyone to come check out the house and help us with our apple harvest.
Obviously, I needed some sort of disclaimer about the organic quality of my apples,so I consulted with my legal team to manufacture this highly sophisticated document: I love babies! And you know who else I love?? Janetha B!!!! My faveee local blogger stopped by like a little sweetie to say hello. She is so damn cute and nice. I am really lucky to have had the chance to meet her through our blogs. Holla! It was an awesome day, and I feel truly blessed to have so many people come support us and chill at our casa. Y'all are welcome any time!

You know, not only do I have the best of friends, but I've also been having the best of breakfasts lately. They are not anything too original, but definitely so good that I had to stop and document.

Waffle Sammie:
I always forget Waffle Wednesday and get all pissed at myself for missing a fab breakfast op, so Saturday my little rebel streak came out and I decided to have Sammie Saturday instead. Nature's Path Organic Fig and Flax waffles with almoooooond butter and blueberry preserves....oh, so good.

In case you thought I was slacking in the cottage cheese department, don't worry because today I mixed up another concoction. PB &J oats--I adore you!
  • 1/3 c. oats, prepared with SunCrystals and cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. whipped cottage cheese
  • 1 tbs. strawberry preserves
  • 1 HUGE sliced strawberry (it was like a mutant!)
  • banana slices
This looked so pretty and tasted even better! Highly recommended! What else? Great friends, super-duper breakfasts, and AWESOME blog readers!! You guys are too cool and nice to me! Thank you so much for all the compliments on my hair! I'm really nervous about it being so dark. But thankfully everyone recognized me yesterday and I didn't make any babies scream when they saw me ( as witnessed above), so yes, it's really nice to get back to my "roots" in a way. :)

Hope you guys all had a wonderful weekend, too. Any best breakfasts lately? Love you! xoxo


  1. The apple sign is cute. I'd take "worm bites" over chemicals and sprays any day. Just chop of the "eaten" part and wash. I'd bet they taste more delicious than any chemically grown ones.

    What cottage cheese brand do you use? Since you highly recommend, I have to try it. I'm a sucker for blogger recommendations.

  2. Ahh your so gorgeous! I'm jealous! How do you do your hair? It looks so silky and pretty!

    And when you make your cottage cheese oats do you just stir in the cottage cheese after you cook the oats? I'm pretty sure I'm going to try that breakfast!

  3. Okay, I think I've said this already - but I'm jealous of your apple harvest!! Happy to hear you had a wonderful time :D Oh, and you know I'm lovin' that waffle sammie ;)

  4. Oh my God you got to meet Janetha!!! She's one of my favorite blogger, she is so damn cool!
    Hee hee! Maybe I'll make a surprise visit and chomp on one of your brownish but organic all-natural apples! :D

  5. I am still in love with your hair! You look good with a baby on your hip ;)

  6. Aww looks like such a fun time! How fun that you guys got to meet up! :)

  7. yay!! i agree with all previous comments of your hair being incredibly gorgeous! and it was a fun apple-pickin' time! and no worms for me thus far, i chomped on an apple last night before bed and it was worm free :) and YES i am living pretty close to you, and real close to the froyo place you talked about i am sure.. haha. i am right by the maverick/albertsons on ft union! :D

  8. Love the waffle sandwich! Looks delicious. What brand of waffles do you use?

  9. Alison, they are Nature's Path Fig anf FLax. I really like them--they kind of taste like a fig newton :)

  10. Awww...yours is the second post I've read about blogger meet-ups...I just saw that Averie met up with someone in AZ. I'm so envious!! I love all of the pictures - you are gorgeous Emily!!! The one of you and Janetha is especially nice. 2 BEAUTIFUL girls!! :)
