Hurricane Harvey - A Story of Guilt

Hurricane Harvey
From Someone who had no flooding, no damage, a heart full of guilt and no real story to tell.

There is a little grassy area to the right of Kollin's elementary school that all the moms who walk their children home hang out in before school gets out. On Thursday August 24th, I was standing there waiting to pick up my little guy from his third day of Kindergarten. The chatter began...."NO SCHOOL FRIDAY AND MONDAY"....seriously?!?!? It's sunny outside, a little windier than normal but no big deal. It is so nice out, "what am I going to do now, I have plans?!?!?" Luckily, there was an echo amongst the group of "walker" moms.

Friday came and it was gorgeous, nice and sunny, still a little windy and the temperature had dropped. The rain started, but no big deal.

I'm not a Millennial Mom - I'm a Rule Breaker

I don't remember what I was like at 3, 5, or even 7. I remember being in high school and wanting to go to a party, knowing there alcohol was served. It was ONLY one block away, her parents were home....her parents allowed alcohol as long it was under their roof. "Hey mom, but it's at (so and so's) house." My mom would say no, and I would ask why.... "Because I said so." --- Let's be honest I knew why, and she knew I knew why.

Triple Pepper Butternut Squash Chili

Triple Pepper Butternut Squash Chili




I'm 2 weeks into Whole30 and feeling great! I modified this recipe just a bit, not a lot from the Whole30 Cookbook. I am not normally into spicy food, and I actually didn't find this to be too spicy. Although it was chili, it still seemed appropriate to eat in the Houston heat for dinner, because of the peppers! I used peppers from our garden and local hatch chili peppers since they are now in season!
