Our Homemade Advent Calendar

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/11/30/homemade-advent-calendar/

Its always good to have a mama friend keep you up to speed with things such as… the day of the week.  Here we are again, the day before DECEMBER 1st and once again, I forgot to make an Advent Calendar/Tree/Box… anything.  Thankfully, I had my daily text chat with my friend T who was wrapping her kiddos advent gifts…

Creamy Crockpot Chicken

I pulled this out of Rocco’s book-bag this week.  When I asked where Mary was, his response was, “Mary went out shopping.” And Roman said, “Yeah! Mawy’s buying Chwistmas presents!”

I mean, at least they knew where she was, right?

I happened to do more Christmas shopping of my own this…

Our Christmas Home Tour

Welcome to our home at Christmas-time!  I love this time of year and try to put a touch of Christmas throughout our home!  You’ll probably find that I have a running theme of Christmas cherries, pine-cones and snowflakes.  I have a mini obsession with each ; )

I wish I could invite you all over for coffee & cookies but the next best thing is a virtual tour so, come in!

WELCOME TO OUR…

Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving! (a few days late)

Are you exhausted? ; )  This was the first Thanksgiving I hosted and not that I didn’t know it was a lot of work but I think being pregnant with an achy back just made all of the work a *little harder!  I was so sore and sleepy on black Friday but it was so worth it!  The memories, the smell of Thanksgiving in our home all day, watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade and the comfort of being together with nowhere…

I was so excited when La-Z-Boy contacted my PiggyToes to host their grand opening store in Monroeville but unfortunately, I couldn’t attend!  I did however find time to shop weeks after the opening and wrote about my experience in…

Welcome to our Toy-Room

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/11/16/welcome-to-our-toy-room/

One of the joys of, well, all of my pregnancies is that I organize and re-organize everything.  Tell me you’re the same way, yes?  During my last ‘nesting session’, I hit the toy room, purged lots of toys and re-organized everything.  My head was spinning with options as to what to do with all of their toys and…

I Have a Blog Hater : Bully

If you’ve been with us for some time, you may remember when I had a ‘blog hater’ (aka. bully) a long while back.  She was like a stray cat to me.  If I fed her, she’d come back the next day.  Long story short, I didn’t feed her and wouldn’t post her nonsense.  She left… moved onto the next victim.  Its been a long while since I’ve had someone new come along that felt the need to call names, degrade and write inappropriate things… Bullies come and go though; we all know that.  It’s…

What I Wore: 6 Months Pregnant!

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/11/14/hello-6-months/

It feels so good to say hello to the 6 month mark!  I’m still sporting my scarves these days and nixing a coat!  It works for me (for now) but I’m sure with cold days to come, I’ll be forced to pull out my puffy jackets and hats!  I popped into Anthropologie for the first time in forever and must admit, I…

A Letter to my Son on his Birthday

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/11/13/a-letter-to-my-son-on-his-birthday/

3 years ago today, our Roman was born.  I woke early and felt great but I was nervous about what was to come.  I can remember thinking about how crazy it was that I felt so good and in just a few short hours, I would be in a lot of pain.  Repeat C-Section.  I bent over and touched my toes, twisted…

Turkey and Beef Chili

Find this recipe at: http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/11/08/turkey-and-beef-chili/

The last time I attempted to make a pot of Chili, it was so spicy that no one could eat it except for my dear hubby.  I could only down a tiny bowl and it was a total bust.  I’d venture to say that not many taste testers could’ve handled the heat.  Why so hot?  Well, I met a can of Adobo…

What I Wore... 23 weeks Pregnant

This week marked the first time I received a ‘negative’ comment regarding my prego appearance.  While out trick-or-treating, I was greeted by a neighbor who said, “So its not just extra clothes you’ve been wearing.  You are pregnant!”  Followed by, “WOW!  You were never this huge with your other 2!  It has to be a girl!”

*blah*

I mean, let’s face it (or I’ll face it)… I know the number on the scale is quite high (for me) at…

Tragic Accident at Pgh Zoo

A tragic accident happened at our local Pittsburgh Zoo over the weekend.  I struggled with posting something about it for fear of what would happen in the comment section being that our platforms are ‘open’.  If you haven’t heard the story, a 2 year old boy, Maddox Derkosh, was lifted by his mother onto a railing at the African Painted Dog Exhibit.  As you can see below, Maddox wears glasses and his mother was just trying to give him a better view of the dogs.  When she lifted him onto the…

Weekend Highlights: Trick-or-Treat & Snow

Hey friends,

How are you?  No really.  How are you?  Do you ever get into the fake “How are you’s” too?  Seems like these days, Brian and I get so busy and our ‘how are you’s’ come out so fake and quick and fast and then we really aren’t listening to what the other is saying.  Like when he came home from work one night last week and I was getting dinner on the table.  I said,

“Hey babe, how are you?” – getting dinner on all 4 plates…

Thankful for November's Cloud

We’ve had quite the week and start to November.  On Monday, while putting some Christmas gifts in storage for hiding, I noticed that our water heater looked like there was a big bubble on the side of it.  Brian knew that didn’t sound right and called ‘Mr. Waterheater’.  Wouldn’t you know, this was an EMERGENCY and they informed us to turn off the water in fear that it would burst and they sent someone to our home immediately.  Brian told me, no playing in the basement (which is our…
