I’m sure that I’ve said this before, but next to chocolate, my favourite dessert would be anything lemon flavoured. I love lemon tarts, and lemon meringue pie (when I can get them to set!), and I’ve shared a recipe for Lemon Coconut Bliss Balls on the blog before, which are the perfect healthy treat if you’re in the mood for something lemony. Wanting to expand my lemon dessert repertoire, I recently decided I should probably make something with lemon buttercream frosting (no explanation needed because YUM) and so, this recipe was born.
Well we have some exciting news to share! Our little family is expanding as we are expecting baby #2 sometime in mid-November. It seems like this has been a long time coming as Emmylou is just about 3, but we I honestly weren’t in any rush, and are happy with the timing.
I think I may be officially dealing with a threenager… On Sunday Zach wanted the day to do homework. No problem – I thought to myself. I’ll just hang out with Emmylou and we’ll do some errands and maybe go to the park, normal weekend stuff. But she had other plans… I should have known something was off before we even left the house. Normally she is pretty good about picking up her toys and helping clean up, but for some reason, Sunday morning it was NOT happening. She refused to help, to the point where I finally just put her in her room and said not to come out until she was ready to help.
A little dose of inspiration to get you weekend ready!
PODCAST: Like most everyone, I was OBSESSED with the first season of Serial. The new true-crime podcast S-Town, hosted by This American Life producer Brian Reed and produced by the creative team behind Serial, is being hailed as even better than it’s predecessor. The series investigates an unsolved murder in a small Alabama town – but apparently it goes off the rails, becoming much more interesting than your usual murder-mystery. I’ve made Zach promise we can start it this weekend :).
Ahhh what a busy week/weekend I’ve had! On Wednesday I traveled solo to San Diego for Social Media Marketing World Conference (it was my first time going and it was absolutely ah-mazing). I had four days there to explore the city, eat gelato and soak up the sun – and ended up with quite the sunburn for my efforts… oops. I got back late Saturday and since then things have been go-go-go.
It’s one of those weeks where it’s only Tuesday but I’m already wishing it was Friday! Zach just left to go on a business trip for a few days so I’m single parenting it and let’s just say I’ll be really happy when he finally walks through the door.
One day I will get fit… It’s not that I don’t like to exercise, I weirdly do, but I legitimately DO NOT have enough time to fit it as regularly as I would like. In my spare time I am always working on the blog or my business (yes, even while watching TV) so unless I manage to add an extra couple of hours to the day I’m not sure how I’m ever going to accomplish my goal of getting fit!
