Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/14/crockpot-chicken-tortilla-soup/

I put this crock-pot together on Sunday when the boys were recovering from the flu.  Yes, I already know what you’re thinking… Mexican food?  With the flu?  Crazy, right?  Well, they pretty much spent Friday and Saturday on the couch, eating nothing but toast with jelly,…

Our Life with Boys... through my iPhone

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/09/life-through-my-iphone/

There has never been a dull moment in raising our 2 boys.  Never.  Each day, each week, each month, each year has been such an awesome adventure and has opened my eyes to a whole new world.  My way of thinking  has changed, the way I view the world around me is different, our way of playing, how we talk… It’s always been…

Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/07/crockpot-french-dip-sandwiches/

Ahhhhh Sunday.  I needed Sunday.  We went to church in the morning and then I took a little Sunday drive by myself while the boys (all 3 of them) napped. I listened to music, sipped a soy latte and cleared my head.  It was refreshing after all of my stressful ob-gyn stuff.  I’m still stressed about…

OB-GYN Drama

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/04/ob-gyn-drama/

The start of January meant one thing to me: Baby time! Time to get all of the Christmas decor put away & time to focus on having our 3rd baby!  I, like many mamas spend the last couple months of my pregnancies resting and nesting. I call it my ‘R&N Time’…  Get the nursery together, wash clothes and blankets,…

Crockpot Lemon Garlic Chicken

I threw this crock-pot together last minute after pre-school and it turned out great!  Though the colors in the picture are kind of ‘boring’… the flavor of this dish are NOT!  Our boys loved it; and it was even more delicious over Creamy Parmesan Rice!  I also steamed their fav veggie- edamame!  Wonder why the love edamame? ; )  Its playful and kid friendly – so fun to ‘pop’!  Lastly, I didn’t want to take the time to brown the chicken like the directions say, so I literally threw every last…

What an Adventure...

Let me just start by saying, whoever thought that taking a road trip when your 8 months pregnant… wait, no.  I should really start by saying how sweet it was that my hubby took the time to plan a little family getaway after the holidays.  In all honesty, it was an awesome idea; one I would normally love if I weren’t 8 months pregnant with a God awful back problem.  I knew this would be quite an adventure as it was, taking 2 toddlers and a psycho dog to the mountains.  Now…

Holiday Drama

I can only imagine that every member of my family just read the title and clicked on it so fast thinking I was writing a post about them!  Slow your hearts down…  I’m writing to all the mamas and friends who have written me over the course of this month.  I’m at a stand-still right now with nothing to do.  That’s right… NOTHING.  It feels odd and I’m a little out of place.  I have nothing to bake or cook, nothing to wrap, nothing to clean and only 1 basket of laundry to fold.  SO I guess, as…

Christmas Breakfast Tradition: Monkey Bread

I love that our little family now has a few traditions throughout the year and this is one of them!  Monkey Bread.  I only make it one time a year; on Christmas morning and this year I am especially excited for it (probably bc I’m pregnant and have been craaaaving it since December 1st!)

Monkey Bread is prepared on Christmas Eve and left sitting out on the counter until morning.  Then, all you have to do when you wake is pop it in the oven, set a timer, and voila!  20 minutes…

Telling Kids about the Sandy Hook Tragedy

In our home, we don’t watch television much and there are many days where the boys don’t watch it at all.  On Friday morning, I woke and got straight to work posting our Christmas Giveaway.  The boys were still sleeping and I was sitting at the computer with a cup of coffee on WordPress, finishing things up.  I’m honestly not sure if the event occurred before or after I posted the giveaway, but I want you to know that I would never have posted it had I known what was going on.  I wouldn’t…

Date Night Dinner : Spaghetti with Clams

Our schedule has been insane this week and the only down-time we’ve had is nap-time.  The rest of the day; morning, afternoon and evening has been filled with pre-school, kids play-dates/Christmas parties, a company Christmas party and a few other night time events too!  Brian said to me last night,

How about a movie night and early bed-time on Friday?

I will never turn that down; sounds perfect!  I declined an invite to a Cookie Exchange…

A little bit of Everything! Pottery Painting Party + What I Wore (3rd Tri) + Santa Party Mix Recipe

In 10 weeks and 5 days, we will officially welcome our third child into this world… I CAN’T WAIT!!!  Not that I want to rush through Christmas and New Years but hopefully after that, time will go by fast because I’m ready to start life with 3 little ones!  And SOOO excited and ready to meet our precious baby too!  So this is my 29th week of pregnancy and while on a hunt for maternity pantyhose (ick!), I found up a pair of sparkly flats and couldn’t pass them up!  And I had the…

Life, Links and a Recipe

Coffee?  Tea?  Let’s chat!  I’m here and still alive but this is the time of year I usually feel like I fall off the face of the earth.  I feel like I’ve been so focused and wrapped up in my own little family of 4 (soon to be 5) and realize that I’ve not given much attention to those around me!  Is that normal?  Is it just what happens at certain stages of motherhood?  I’m definitely in that stage.  Sometimes I get overwhelmed when I try to keep up.  Sometimes scrolling through…

What I Wore: 3rd Trimester

I’m thrilled to say, I made it to my 3rd trimester in pregnancy!  And though this may sound weird, I feel justified now in waddling, groaning when I get up from the floor (or couch) and having that extra piece of chocolate (after the 1st four pieces)!  So, this past week I attended a Girls Night Out Party and though I had all intentions of dressing up, it was a cold night, I had a long day with the boys and I just wanted to be comfortable.

Dresses make me feel…

This is why Advent Sucks...

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/12/05/this-is-why-advent-sucks/

I don’t like that word (sucks), but honestly, it’s exactly how I feel about this whole ‘Advent’ thing right now.  Here’s the deal.  On one hand, I have Rocco who is rushing away the days just to get to the next day, the next number, the next gift; and then there’s Roman who is only interested in Advent because…

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…
