Haute Mamas

Thank you, Chicago

During my first excursion on my first morning, my umbrella was sacrificed to the notorious Chicago wind. I was a stereotypical tourist trying to fight the formidable gusts and rain with my tiny, inside-out umbrella. Within minutes, the fabric was torn from the ribs and the handle with in two … more

Let's Get Dirty

When your palate pines for a purple palette on your plate

I planted purple potatoes this year, just because I could. I found them either at Park Seed or Territorial Seed, and the catalog said they were a late season potato that produced a lot and that stayed purple when you cooked them. Yes, that’s a purple baked potato from my harden, with … more

Clearance Flowers?

Did you know Lowe's had a clearance section? Me either! My best friend, who lives in Georgia, sent me these pics last night of flowers she found in the clearance section at Lowe's.  She said it was way in the back and you sort of have to hunt around for it.  It seems worth … more

Breakfast for Dinner

Bottles, and diapers and baby monitors, oh my!

So my husband and I have finally completed our baby registeries. Admittedly, we were a bit hesitant to do them because it felt weird signing up for items you want people to buy you and your baby. I know registeries are common, and we had no problem doing them for our wedding, but I guess … more

Hey there everyone, meet Scooter, my new trail buddy. Scooter, a rough coated Jack Russell Terrier, came into our lives, last Christmas, as an eight week old puppy. As expected a JRT puppy can be a challenge (he is our second so we knew what we were in for) but also an … more

WHY IS THERE A BIRD NAMED AFTER A COW? (People, beef, climate change and grassland birds)

In my last blog, I discussed how grasslands have changed drastically in the past century and a half. I mentioned the many birds whose populations have suffered enormous declines as a result. But, as always, “it is an ill wind that does nobody good.” Winners in this change of … more
