I haven't completely replaced store-bought mayo yet, but I find making a batch of home-made mayo to be so satisfying! And it tastes sooo good! This batch has lime instead of lemon juice, and as usual a bit extra mustard powder, so it's delightfully tangy. Try it if you never have! via Instagram

Second pair of pegs! Double brushed poly this time, so they're basically custom LuLaRoe. #LuLaWho #actuallyiowntonsoflularoe @patternsforpirates #p4p via Instagram

PJ accidentally snipped a hole in these cute sparkly terry stretch pants while cutting out a picture at PreK today, and it looked ugly once I stitched it closed, so I added a heart patch from some scrap fleece! via Instagram

Snuggling on separate chairs watching Trolls 😍 ...Except now PJ has been hiding under her bit of blanket for a while, because apparently colorful, happy, sparkly, singing, hugging trolls are scary. #MightyPJ #MightyMax #PJandMax via Instagram

Pirate PJ posing in front of her drawing of Luke Skywalker fighting "Dark" Vader and his "fighters." I'm hoping to finally, really, truly try out my serger while #MightyPJ plays and #MightyMax naps! via Instagram

Ever since I showed her how to wear her favorite short-sleeved shirts over long for cold weather, she's been doing it almost daily. I'm just happy she can get 100% dressed with no help from us! Today she did choose blue/teal striped socks that match the Paw Patrol shirt very well...and she let me put a pigtail in her hair! Hence the demanded picture. #MightyPJ via Instagram

PJ built a pillow fort in our bed, which she says is a massage bathtub in which there are mice massaging her feet; the mice are wearing tiny bathing suits to swim around. She just said, "This is lo-ve-ly. I have a massaging house bathtub." I can't make this stuff up, folks. #MightyPJ #PJsays #PJpretends #snowday via Instagram

I'm participating in National Wear Red Day in honor and memory of the amazing, unforgettable Aunt @ninnyrank, a victim of undiagnosed heart disease, which can manifest in unexpected ways in women. via Instagram
