LOVE is..

LOVE is louder than all the quick judgements made.

LOVE is louder than all the mean looks given.

LOVE is louder than all the hurtful thoughts and words.

LOVE is louder than jealousy.

LOVE is louder than greed and selfishness.

LOVE is louder than lies.

LOVE is louder than abuse. verbal. emotional. physical.

LOVE is louder than assuming.

LOVE is louder than contention

LOVE is louder than the need to be right and have the last word.

LOVE is louder than holding a grudge

LOVE is louder than gossiping.

LOVE is louder than disrespect.

LOVE is louder than negativity.

Love is louder than any other possible action out there.


In the words of Ellen Degeneres "Be Kind To One Another."

It's All About Comfy

 Sweater - FOREVER21 Jeans -Hollister Moccasins- ALDO Hat - NEW YORK NEW YORK..some gift shop..

Today was all about being completely comfy while running errands and playing with baby G. Also I decided to throw a hat into the mix so that I didn't have to do my hair. What else screams comfy more than a side braid with a baseball cap on. That's right...not much. And look! The snow decided to start melting and it was warm enough not to wear a parka! Not that I do even when it's minus 31 degrees out. That's right peeps, on the weekend we reached MINUS 31 degrees. I cried. But you couldn't tell..because my tears froze.

Anyways, I hope you are having a happy happy happiest of all Wednesdays. What did you wear today? I bet it wasn't as comfy...but probably had a lot more cuteness going on!

Beets Me

Finally we caved over here and got brave enough to hook beets up with chocolate. Guess what.
They get along quite nicely. It might even be love.

Here's their love story.

2 Cups all purpose flour
1 3/4 Cups sugar {the white kind}
2/3 Cup cocoa powder {which ever kind you prefer. We went dark chocolate over here}
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

3/4 Cup unsalted butter {softened}
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 Cup cooked and pureed beets
1 1/4 Cups hot water
? mini semi sweet chocolate chips. {you know my rules..however many you like!}

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease whatever size muffin tins you wish! Or cake pans... I'm gonna say an 8inch cake pan.

In a large bowl mix together flour,sugar,cocoa,baking powder & salt.

Add butter and mix

Add vanilla and eggs and mix

Add cooked pureed beets and mix

Then add hot water guessed it...mix!

Pour batter into prepared tins/pans

Bake until a tooth pick comes out clean. I don't time these things and I really should remember to...but I just can't do it for some reason! {Cause I like to learn things the hard way...or trial and error. sigh.}

Let cool on rack and then ENJOY these healthy little bits of semi healthy goodness!

I promise you your hubs/kidlets will not even know whats in these things! Muahaha.


They lived happily ever after.

From Where I Stand

From Where I stand...

...I'm resistant to good because I'm afraid it won't last. I need to change that.

...Finding out I have a SEVERE iron deficiency has changed my life...I now look at EVERYTHING and see how much iron it contains. Lame. 

...Having a severe iron deficiency can make you irritable...go figure. ha.

...I'm enjoying the no snow. Until tomorrow.

...Organic milk...umm..delish.

...I should own a place where I serve smoothies and cookies, because dang. I.Make.Them.Good.

...I'm headed to Calgary today to do some retail therapy and a solid vent sesh with one of the best girls I know. Double awesome.

...It's a Happy Hump Day!

...Hoping things are good from where you stand.
