I found the culprit to Kaitlyn’s sleep troubles! Her top right incisor is just barelyyyyyy starting to poke through. Poor baby does not take kindly to teething, but now that I can feel the tooth starting to break through I hope she feels some relief soon. In the meantime, I really don’t mind the extra snuggles, as she is getting so big so fast and hangs off the chair when I try to hold her now. Sniffle.
Well, that’s not exactly the intro I was imagining, but here we are. So let’s jump right in and let me tell you about a few things I’m loving lately!
Koda’s treatments are almost over and she’s been doing great! Her last one is in two weeks, at which time we’ll do a biopsy to see how things are going. 20% of dogs treated for canine lymphoma live 2+ years beyond diagnosis, and I know it’s not the largest percentage, but right now I’m praying to be in that 20%.
In other news, she got into a rancid, washed up fish yesterday. Her breath still reeks. Thankfully the above picture was not taken after said fish. Ew.
Have I ever shown you this?
For our wedding (6 years ago!) we displayed family wedding photos of our parents and grandparents, complete with wedding date. Hailey stumbled across these a few months ago and insisted on displaying them on her dresser. She won’t let me move them now and my heart swells with pride to be raising a fellow nostalgic photo lover!
So the other day I mentioned we bought a half cow share from a friend who raises grass-fed, local cows. We weren’t really sure what we were getting into, but the price was incredible, averaging only $4.50/lb so we went for it and woah. We now have quite a bit of beef!
For us, who eat red meat about once a week, we might have overdone it. So any friends that visit in the next calendar year, prepare yourself for burgers, roasts and steak. Ha! But really. The quality is great and David made us a print out to keep track of all the cuts.
I can’t wait to experiment with some of the more unusual (for me) cuts and David has the sous vide ready to tackle them all!
Let’s talk summer clothes.
I know, I know. I hear you. Brittany, why don’t you do beautiful fashion photo shoots like this all the time?! Note taken.
But let me tell you about these simple sundresses from Old Navy (that are currently on sale!). They are so comfortable and light weight and I’ve pretty much been living in them.
And while we are talking clothes…
I bought them on super sale through zulily a month or so ago, along with Hailey’s sparkly version, and the girls have lived in them since. When we get ready to go anywhere, I’ll tell Kaitlyn to get her shoes and she’ll speed toddle over to grab these. She loves them!
Ok, to wrap things up, cheese baby cheese.
Alouette’s Le Petite Fromage. They are made with cheese and a touch of yogurt with herbs and spices and are the perfect size for a snack or to add to an omelet, like I’ve been doing. They’re delicious!
Don’t forget to check out my giveaway (ends Sunday) and I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
