We had an eventful week where Butterscotch lost not one but both of her top front teeth! Emily noticed that one was crooked and then the following day one tooth was gone and the next day the other! I'm just hoping she doesn't die as guinea pigs are kind of on the fragile side as far as pets go. It's been about a week and thankfully her two top teeth are growing back but they still look a little crooked...
Most of the time our weather has still been pretty mild which is nice. The weather is cool in the morning but usually warms up by mid afternoon. Once the wind comes through we'll know it's winter time in Vegas.

These hummingbirds are so beautiful! We have less of them now that the weather is cooler but they still come to my office window where I have two feeders up. I love to watch them come and go throughout the day. They tilt their heads and look at me as I watch them fly around. :)
This girl sure loves her guinea.
I tried my hand at making homemade sourdough focaccia bread. It was just ok so I won't be making it again.
This meal was a hit though! It's a meal you make from Purple Carrot (meal delivery subscription) and it was good.

Our temps have gotten cooler but the sun is still shining! After living in places on the east coast that get less sunshine, I'll forever be grateful for a sunny day. It took this picture on my walk to get the mail in our neighborhood.

You've gotta love the joy that kids find in the simple things in life. Emily is our flower picker - on every walk, bike ride, and trip around the neighborhood she's always picking the neighbors flowers and insisting I carry them all home.
This weeks latest sourdough adventure included homemade pita bread.
Em got a little goofy when she fed Scotchy the other day. She made her a bed of lettuce and kale. I don't think Scotchy minded all that much. ;)
Workouts have been a highlight of my days. It gives me something good to focus on, has been good to reduce stress, and it helps me eat better too.

Being home means staying busy making fun stuff like sourdough pretzels from scratch, just because you can. We ate allll of these in just a few days!
This veggie lo mein is one of my end of week go-to meals since I throw in whatever veggies we have on hand. If you'd like the recipe, check it out on the right of this page!
