New York New York

So were here! We have moved to New York City. we arrived on THE coldest day in history?? (sure, thats what i was told so i'm going with it). It was a whopping 3 degrees. jude and i flew by our lonesomes and when i walked out of the airport door {at 5 something am} i thought someone knocked me in the stomach. it took my breath away it was so dang bitter cold and i wanted to run straight back to sunny southern california. well, anyway, the weather is much much improved as noted by the photographs below. so life is looking up:) someday soon i will hopefully update the logo. once i realize i am not going back. ha! J/k. but sometimes i dream about the beach and my dear friends.

ok so since we have been here, among other things that I have had to go without while been here in the city {car, aka my personal storage area, last min grocery shopping, my flip-flops} another important thing is pre made baby pouches! I feel like i could find them a lot more affordable in california. or maybe now i just don't want to carry home that extra bag holding the squeezies ha! therefore, jude gets hungry so i have had to become more creative with my baby making food. So here are our latest favorites.  Judes favorite and mine. mixtures like this can go great as a side dish with any meat or over spaghetti squash!
