instafriday #16


i am in love with this photo.
i love that Reese is not only showing interest in her baby sis,
but that she's starting to get protective of her.
anytime she cries, she rushes to get a pacifier to stick in her mouth ;)
and she always wants to make sure "is Tessa coming with us?" when we go somewhere.

new flowers reminded me of this post i wrote last february 
about spring and the promise that it brings


how do you make your broccoli?
well, once you try this, you'll never go back:
spread 'em out on a baking sheet & set oven to 400
drizzle olive oil and salt & pepper and then bake for 10 min
they are to die for, crazy simple to make, and have so much flavor.
 i could eat them every single day and it's pretty much my go-to side dish for every meal
** i use fresh broccoli, not frozen. i just buy the bag of already-cut broccoli from trader joes **

these were my girls at 6pm.
of course once i tried to transfer Reese, she woke up and freaked out about sleeping in her bed
unfortunately, my amazing sleeper of 2.5 years 
pretty much regressed about a month before her sister was born
she hates her bed, her room, and sleeping in general.

this little sea sponge-looking muffin is my new breakfast.
it's super-duper healthy and keeps you full for awhile [lots of fiber] for about 230 calories
see the recipe in the photo below
[you can get the ground flax at trader joes for like $3]

"it is easy to make an idol of routine
finding security within the boundaries you build around your life"
this is word-for-word what i do every.single.day
but i never thought of it that way.
amazing how things that seem okay, and good, and beneficial
can just disguise themselves as idols.
** quote/photo is from "Jesus Calling"**


beautiful.
the fountain at balboa park

on the top is new baby, Tessa.
below that is her big sis, in a photo around the same age, in the same outfit
i think they look alike!
my husband didn't know who was who when i texted him the photo ;)

these things are pretty much the best ever. 
you know, the school / sports teams fundraiser chocolate?
yum.

  4. The first picture is amazing! I make all my veggies that way. I also like to sprinkle them with parmesan at the end. Everything is better with parmesan ;)
