Great Idea!!

February 11, 2015

^^ That’s Mazen’s new favorite phrase, and it’s so hilarious when he says it with huge enthusiasm! So imagine his little brain spinning when I said “Do you want to go back to the Jumpy Jumpy place today?” GREAT IDEA MOMMY!! First: a power breakfast.

Here is last night’s dinner via Instagram: Remake of my first ever @cooksmarts meal! Black bean quinoa burgers with avocado and sweet potato fries.

Smooth + Chill

February 2, 2015

How about that football?! I have to admit, I didn’t watch the end of the game. We left the party shortly after halftime to get Mazen home to bed. As much as I don’t really care about sports, I sort of wish I had watched the whole thing! I hear the ending was pretty exciting. […]
