Lemon love

For my birthday this past July my mom gave me a lemon tree. I was smidge obsessed with the idea of one after reading an article in Oprah magazine, so I had also ordered some lemon seeds online and planted them. 

All eight. 

Having done all of this pretty spontaneously and without much research, it was pretty upsetting when the big one  started to die. Her leaves fell off, she had some big infestations... Nasty stuff. 

Anyway, it turns out I was slowly suffocating them with nasty potting soil and too much water, so today we did some lemon tree surgery and repotted the big one and seven baby seedlings (one didn't make it at all).

It was messy business, and Lulu was a very enthusiastic helper! 

And now they all seem a lot happier in their new sandy, mold-free soil! 

The next step is some serious indoor lighting. Apparentley this chilly Maine weather isn't good for them?!?  Haha!

I left Lulu alone..,

In the tub, for like three minutes so I could get my jams on. Sort of a regular thing, usually not a problem. She likes to soak in her tub and play with her toys. 


"It's just fo' mummies and babies?"

Yep. Conditioner! Not a fun rinsing experience.

I haven't posted in a million years, but we can catch up later. 

First we need to talk about the curry that I made tonight. (I made curry! And it was edible!!)

Chickpea and Tempeh Curry served with black rice. With legit minced garlic and jalapeƱo. From scratch!! Vegan and delicious! I'm pretty excited about it!

Birchbox win!

Guys, I am obsessed. My birchbox this month so rocked my world. Red lipstick that I didn't even know I needed, body gel from Italy, samples of tea from France and the fanciest shampoo I have ever seen.

Clearly they know me well!

Tricycle time!

It's getting warmer outside, and little Lulu is more than ready for some big girls recreation.

We ordered this gem from Amazon and she is in love! She mostly just sits on it for now, but I see lots of fun this spring/summer!

Home at last!

Brian is back!

And four weeks later, allll my stuff from Alaska!  

(I'm so excited to have my crockpot back!  And my sewing machine, and all my Ikea furniture, and my BED!)

This ETS thing is no joke.  The clock is ticking on Brian's terminal leave with not a lot on the job front for him.
