Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pulled Pork Bowls

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pulled Pork Bowls

It’s the end of the school year and our schedule of band concerts, choir performances, track meets, and school open houses is feeling overwhelming. So when Lindsey texted me about this recipe for Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork, with Lime Juice Coleslaw, and Coconut Rice, I practically begged her to send it over ASAP.

It looks super-easy and I know my kids will love the Hawaiian flavors.

I can’t wait to make this tonight.

What, Are You Crazy? You Should Totally Be Taking UberPool to the Airport

I know I’ve mentioned before how much I love Uber. I use it so much that I keep the app on the first page of my phone — with iMessage and Gmail and Facebook and Instagram and the weather app. It’s one of my essentials. I was introduced to Uber on a trip to Washington D.C. several years ago, and it was like magic for me. Suddenly, I could show up in any city and have a stress-free transportation situation. No having to find a local cab company or rent a car. No having to talk to anyone on the phone. I love it so much! So I’m delighted to tell you I’m working with Uber on a 3 part series happening May, June & July.

For this first post, I want to make sure you know about uberPOOL. Why? Because it’s going to save you money, and if you haven’t tried it yet, you are going to be pleasantly surprised.

Let me convince you to give it a try. Let’s all save some money!

Living With Kids: Kate Lao Shaffner

I think sometimes the biggest times of growth in our lives come when we shake things up a bit (or a lot!). Today’s Living With Kids story is such a great example of that. Kate and her husband took an opportunity to sell their home, take a new job and move to the other side of the planet with their two small kids. And not only that, they rent an apartment in a building with Kate’s work colleagues, which means she might find herself riding in the elevator after work, arms full of groceries, with her boss.

Kate has a great perspective on being happy with what you have and really making the most of your surroundings. Come say hello…

The Treehouse: Master Bedroom Remodel with Before & After Photos

Ready to see some before and after photos of our Master Bedroom remodel? We’ve been living in the finished space for over 5 months now, and I am happy to tell you that every single day I wake up and grin about the new space. Not exaggerating. I love it so much. I don’t know if you remember, but it was such a weird space before. Yes, the room had lots of potential — interesting angles, tons of windows + skylights, great views of our little forest, a big balcony and wonderful light — but the layout just didn’t make sense at all.

Tons more photos and all the details. Keep reading.

A Few Things

Hello, Friends. How are you? How was your week? Our big event of the week was getting to see Hamilton! We bought tickets back in December, and the kids were counting down the days the entire time. Our four youngest kids are some kind of Hamilton Superfans, I swear. And the show was every bit as wonderful as they dreamed it would be. Any Hamilton fans at your house? Have you had a chance to see it? If you’re curious, you can see some photos from our evening here.

My to-do list today is epic, but before I tackle it, here are a few things I wanted to share with you:
