Weekday Dinner Menu at The House on High Street

pasta

Hey, all. It’s been a while. Technically, I am still on hiatus. Praying that the good Lord will shower me with inspiration and clarity in how to continue this venture of social-media-sharing. So, consider this just a “Hi there. Can’t stay. But, wanted to say hello.” kind-of-a-thing. ; ) I wanted to share something I started at the beginning of Honey-bear’s school …

Honey Bear’s Room Project

20160904_184732

This past Friday, Honey-bear moved in, for good! It was my birthday, and I told her that she was my favorite birthday gift. (If you need an update on our newest family addition, you can read all about “HER”, here.) Over the past several weeks, Scott and I have been having Honey-bear spend the weekends at The House on High Street. …

Veal Loin Chop with Mushrooms

Veal Loin Chops

I made this last night for my cousin and her family. I’ve never made it before, and I knew that was risky. But, unless they are overcooked, veal loin chops are a definite crowd pleaser~ any which way! They are so tender and flavorful. I decided to make them similarly to the way I make chicken marsala. Aside from Baby Banana, …

Personal Appearance – Becoming the Woman God Wants

Proverbs 31 Woman

Hey Girls! In conjunction to our 13 week study of the Proverbs 31 woman, this week, we are focusing on our personal appearance. When I first read this title of Week 7, in Donna Partow’s Book, “Becoming the Woman God Wants Me to Be”, I thought it would have more to do with beauty. The kind of beauty that every runway model …

My Girl ~ My Honey-bear

two hands

Only some of us understand the bond between mother and daughter. My mom always told me that she must have been a good daughter to my grandmother, because she had three extraordinary daughters. (Thanks, mom.) Mom also told me that someday, I’d have an exceptional daughter. Sure, there were times I almost lost hope in believing that this would ever happen. I …

Summer Baby in WHITE

Summer Baby

Banana is loving the summer! It means more day trips and time in the sun. (With sunblock, of course!) During the past several weeks, I’ve been collecting beautiful and feminine items for Baby B from… you guessed it, AMAZON! And, I wonder if you’d be surprised that my favorite pieces are all W-H-I-T-E. My favorite color. ; ) I have …

Traditional Sunroom

Traditional Sunroom

Believe it or not, the sunroom at The House on High Street has been an interior work in progress. Scott and I decided to have the sunroom (and upstairs balcony) constructed prior to moving into the house. However, most of the interior decorating has accumulated over time. In case you forgot, this is what our sunroom looked like before renovation. Here is …

Pasta BOBBY!

Pasta with Sausage and Broccoli

I’m thrilled to be sharing a dish with you that was introduced to me during my years as a nanny. Throughout my college years, I worked as a nanny and housecleaner for a family that is now (25 years later) a huge part of my life. I worked for Katie (my BFF and current prayer warrior friend) for 3 years during …

Vision ~ The Distance Between Two Points

EYES.jpg - 1

There are a lot of women who are waiting for something. And, there are a lot of women who have given up waiting for something. I once was that woman waiting for something. For a very long time, actually, I waited for something. I almost lost hope. Instead, by the grace of God, I formed a vision. I formed a …

5 Things to Bring on Your Next Baby-cation!

2016-02-04 11.44.00

(Summer vacation I should say… ; ) Last week, Scott and I took Baby Banana to Avalon Beach to spend time with my family and celebrate my parents’ (very much belated) 50th Anniversary. At nine months old, Banana is now standing, crawling around, and touching just about anything. Needless to say, I was nervous and confused about what to bring for our …
