We've seen a bunny around the house once in while for quite some time now but never this close. This is what I saw when I looked out the window one day. My kids were thrilled to see the bunny. They wanted to go out and pet it but later decided against it when I told them that it might get startled and hop away. In the end they were happy to just sit by the window and watch the bunny. The bunny didn't stay long, but it made our day.

Dr Seuss is often known for his whimsical and silly children's books, but there's also another side of him that's both profound and thoughtful. These messages can be found in many of these books if you look beyond the fun and wacky rhymes.
Well said, Dr Seuss, thanks for the reminder.

My life revolves around food. It's either I'm preparing food, shopping for food, or reading up on food, so I thought I'd devote a post to some of our favorite foods at the moment.
Chips and Salsa
This is our favorite snack on movie nights after we've put the kids to bed. I love salsa. I scoop it up like a spoon with my chips while my husband merely dips his chips, so we each get our own container of salsa, otherwise, I'd be devouring his as well.

Strawberries (especially the big pack from Costco)
My kids will eat their weight in strawberries if I let them. They fight over them if they don't get enough, so we love that big pack of strawberries from Costco. Price is good, and everyone gets their fill of strawberries.
My son got sick when he was really little. After multiple doctor's visits and slowly ruling out different things, we finally determined that he was lactose intolerant. He eventually got better when we switched over to milk with lactase. Thank goodness for this stuff because he loves milk. Between him and his sister, they consume a lot of milk. My husband often jokes that we need to just get a cow at the rate we're consuming milk.
Bear Naked Fruit and Nutty flavor
I initially got this for my kids. I wanted something healthy for them as a snack that's handy, but once my husband and I tried it, we couldn't stop. It's really good and good for you. I read that you can make this stuff at home, but I've yet to try it since I didn't have all the ingredients on hand. It's definitely on my list of things to do though.
Community Coffee K-cups
I love Community Coffee. I was so excited when I saw that they have k-cups as well. I'm back to drinking coffee regularly again, but I try to limit to one cup a day. I gave it up for a while, but there's just something about that morning cup of coffee. It really perks up my day and gets me going.
I love nachos. It's got salsa, guacamole, chips, and queso; all of my favorites combined into one, so what's not to love! It's one of my comfort foods. It's not the healthiest, so I try to get them only once in a while, otherwise, I'd eat it everyday, maybe every other day because I like variety.
What are some of your favorite foods lately?
