Spring Break 2017: Tallahassee Eats

One of my favorite things to do when traveling is to try out new places to eat. Our recent trip to Tallahassee provided several great opportunities to do this. Thankfully the kids typically do really well in restaurants and this trip was no exception.

Our first opportunity to eat out, my sister and her family took us to one of their favorite pizza joints: Momo's Pizza. Their tagline is "slices as big as your head" and they really were huge! You buy your pizza by the slice. I chose a supreme slice for myself and a four-cheese slice for the boys to split. It was so much pizza! And so delicious. We could have split one slice between the three of us. The leftovers were great too, though.

Second up was Angelo & Son's Tropical Shrimp Trader Company. This restaurant was in Panacea not Tallahassee, but we enjoyed it nonetheless. This was our big seafood day after an afternoon of beach play.

Angela and I both picked a seafood platter to split with our kiddos. I also ordered an extra order of hush puppies for Jack. We managed to finish it all. Fried seafood at the beach is one of my faves!

Our third opportunity to eat out came in the form of brunch on Sunday after church. We attempted to eat at two different Canopy Road Cafe locations but they were slammed. As a back up we ended up going to Jenny's Lunchbox  and it was a big hit (even if we were crammed around a tiny table).

As a bonus we let Jack and Levi sit at their own table and they were perfect little gentleman. They even ordered their own food (pancakes) and didn't bother anyone (us or any other customers) for the duration of brunch. It's hard to believe that these two little 5-year-olds are capable of eating on their own at a sit-down restaurant!

I am a sucker for breakfast out and Jenny's Lunchbox did not disappoint. Jack had pancakes and I had fried eggs with ham and toast and also a side of biscuits and gravy (that I shared with Isaac). This little dive is worth a visit if you love a good home-made breakfast that you don't have to make yourself.

Finally, on our last day we drove up to Thomasville, Georgia on our way home so that we could go to Jonah's Fish & Grits. My sister had been raving about it, so we thought it would be a good way to end our trip.

Angela and I both had a grouper sandwich and it was out of this world. Their hush puppies really were the best ever, and the chowder I tried was divine. It's hard to find chowder in the south and man, this was good soup. It was a perfect way to end our trip.

Before leaving town we walked the kids down the block to The Mix for frozen yogurt.

If I'm being honest, this was probably the top pick for the kids in regards to food for the entire weekend. We let them pick ice cream and a reasonable amount of toppings and they were in kid heaven. Perfect way to end our spring break trip to see cousins!

Baby Update: 32 Weeks, What's It Like to Have Polyhydramnios

I have had some questions about how I am feeling so I thought I would share what it has been like for me to experience Polyhydramnios with this pregnancy. If you have missed my previous posts, I have too much amniotic fluid in my uterus which makes my belly really big and it also causes early contractions (and possibly labor) because my body thinks it is further along than it is. For me it meant a hospital stay at almost-30 weeks to stop contractions.

Yesterday I had my follow up with the high-risk OB. Their ultrasound measurements showed the fluid is currently 21cm (which is below the risk). The measurements are a bit of an art project with different people getting different numbers (last week I was still measuring 25cm). The doctor I saw said they will continue to measure and assess me on a weekly basis for now. According to him, once I make it to 34 weeks, they would not try to prevent birth if I went into labor. He also mentioned wanting to induce me at 38 weeks. We shall see... my…

Weekend Project: Sign Art

UPDATE 01/07/16
This project is by far my most viewed post thanks to Pinterest and also this blog post from Make Magazine in 2014. If you are interested in purchasing a PDF of the words from me, you may do so for $20. Contact me at cheree dot moore at gmail dot com to make the purchase. If you make your own sign, I would love to hear about and see your results!

For some time, I have been intrigued by the idea of transferring printed art to wood. Specifically the transfer of words (or typography). Sign art is all over the internet – be it blogs I follow or Pinterest – and I have had an itch to try my hand at it. 

Daniel and I had some scrap wood from pallets from our move to Alabama that was in good shape and I thought that this wood gave me the perfect opportunity to create a (cheap) sign for our living room.

It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to go on the sign and then it took even longer to research how I would do the transfer. Actually doing the project took even longer sin…

It's the Final Countdown

Three long years ago, we learned that Daniel was going to be relocated from working in Hollywood, Alabama to two hours north in Spring City, Tennessee. We knew it was coming, but it still turned our world upside down. We spent eight months living out of suitcases, in and out of hotels and vacation homes during the week, until finally settling into our current home on Signal Mountain.
We both felt strongly that we made the right choice in regard to the location of our new home, but we knew it would be a difficult journey – Daniel's new position promised long hours, with a 70-minute commute each way. We were told the job would last about a year, so we hoped and prayed for the best.
To say it's been a hard experience would be an understatement. Jack went through a phase where he didn't believe that Daniel lived at our house. Which was kind of true. For months on end, Daniel worked 6-7 days a week, and sometimes weeks at a time without a day off. The hours were lo…
