It’s A Boy!

31 Aug

Yep.  That’s right.  Professional Chicks is going on maternity leave!  My husband and I are expecting a baby boy this fall, and we’re diving in to everything we have to do between now and then.

This blog has been so much fun.  Thanks for being here daily for so long, and then weekly for the bonus posts ever since.

To stay connected, check out my newest project, Greenhorn Bold!  I know you’ll love it.

In the meantime, I’ll see you here or there, I’m sure (and I’ll post some pictures of the nursery and other fun stuff from time to time after the baby comes, for those who might be interested).

With love,

Desiree

Have you checked out Greenhorn Bold yet?  A passion project of mine where my mission is to help you influence and inspire others through your unique presence and voice.  Would mean so much to me if you stopped by and shared your thoughts!

Piper W

23 Aug

My sweet little niece Piper has taken to calling herself “Piper W.”  Apparently she has a friend in school, also named Piper, and she’s worried about confusion.  Hard to mistake this one . . . .

Abe’s Magic Hot Dog

17 Aug

This is the latest obsession in our house (well, not our house exactly, since I’m generally not the biggest fan of hot dogs, but anytime Abe gets a chance to show this off, he does).

What you are looking at is a plate of (nitrate free, organic) hot dogs that have been spiral cut around a skewer, removed from the skewer, and then grilled on the BBQ.  According to Abe, the outside is caramelized while the insides are slowly cooked through.  This shape of hot dog also holds condiments well and fits along the entire bun.

On the same night we enjoyed Abe’s magic hot dogs plus Nikki’s amazing homemade corn dogs – both admittedly delicious.     

Glacier

9 Aug

In a week’s time, we drove all over Montana (according to Abe, we visited every city that has more than 30,000 people – so there’s that).

Glacier, in particular, is one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen.

Love this Big Sky.

And just love.

A Summer Salad For Yuki

3 Aug

This post was going to be dedicated to this beautiful summer salad with spinach, crisp gala apples, white peaches, and avocado.

But, I just found out my poor family dog was attacked by coyotes so instead it will be a tribute to him.  He’s OK.  Just butt-hurt (sad!) with stitches all over.  Poor little guy!
