Haute Mamas

My dog days are over

When our friends invited us to join them camping in Moab last weekend, we jumped at the opportunity. Spring is the best time to visit Utah's desert landscape. Last week was our spring break, so we had plenty of time to get my mom's rv out of storage and get it ready to go for the … more

Let's Get Dirty

A cool new (but extremely old) way to water beds that have no built-in irrigation

When I was at Bookcliff Gardens last week taking photos for our Spring Home and Garden section I saw these ollas, which are watering clay pots that haven’t been glazed. It’s an old-school method of watering a small planting area (like a raised bed), which I thought was pretty … more

Penny Pinchers


Today's quote board quote seems appropo for Penny Pinchers: "The best things in life aren't things." ~ Michael Franti It's true though, isn't it? We get hung up on material items so often in life that we for get that they're just that: materials. They … more

Breakfast for Dinner

A little overdue but, hey, so was the baby

After blogging about my pregnancy, I admittedly dropped the ball on the most important update of all: my baby! Sorry about that. I thought about it a couple times when I had free time while on maternity leave but then I decided to nap instead. Sometimes, I did laundry. I'm happy … more

The Outdoor Junkie

Getting Fat

  I've wanted to give fatbiking or snowbiking a shot for a while but last winter we had such good snow conditions the skis always took priority. After all, when you get back to back powder days all winter long, it would be rude not to take advantage of it. This year is a whole … more

Music On the Goe

Chill Out With Couches, H. Grimace
