Happy Birthday, Mama Bender!

November 5, 2013

A very important person was born on November 5, 19…hm, that’s strange. The year escapes me. 😉 Perhaps I should go Back to the Future to figure it out. Yep, Mama Bender was lucky enough to be born on the exact day that Marty McFly became “Calvin Klein.” I’ve always thought that was super cool. […]

Mama Bender’s Beef Stroganoff

January 14, 2013

The Packers may have lost this weekend (sigh), but there were several “wins” to even things out. Bobby and I had a wonderful time with our neighbors on Friday night, who we invited over for a Humble Pie and game night. Our conversation won out over the game playing most of the time, but I […]

Happy Birthday, Mama Bender!

November 5, 2011

Someone is turning 25 today… Okay, maybe not 25, but she sure does dance like it. The incredible Mama Bender is celebrating her birthday today. I wish I could be there to sing and make a grass-fed meal in person, but look forward to doing just that when we come for Thanksgiving a few weeks […]

Mama B.

May 13, 2012

Happy Mother’s Day! I love any time I get to spend with my mom. This time of year is extra special because I was born on the Saturday before Mother’s Day, and sometimes my birthday even falls on the holiday. It makes it doubly fun to celebrate when my mom is the reason I’m here […]

Mama’s Song

September 30, 2010

16 DAYS!! I watched my first-ever episode of Glee this week. I know, I know – I’m late to the party. But I figured there was no better time to start watching than an episode dedicated to Britney Spears. Source As I expected, I was blown away by the singing and dancing! I was immediately […]
