Pregnancy Journal: 33 weeks with baby #2
Nearly 3 weeks ago now, I was prepared to sit down, and excitedly write a 30 week update, exclaiming how it’s the final countdown!

I am pretty much in love with home-brewing, and the other day it was time for my husband and I to get our bottle on! Wahoo. Yep. It was time to bottle our Live Oak Hefeweizen Clone. After sanitizing all of our bottles, we transferred the beer from the glass carboy from part 2 of...

Celebrate with Tiramisu, because it’s delicious.
This past weekend, my husband and I celebrated a special anniversary, and I wanted to make him something special for it.
