Hidden Sources of GMO’s (And My Weekend With Mama Natural)

Affiliate Disclosure | in Everything Else | by | with 17 Comments

About this time . . .

Two days ago I was using one hand to apply pressure to the other, trying to dial for help with my elbows, and considering a visit to my neighbor’s in wildly inappropriate pajamas. Not my best moment.

A couple days before THAT, though, I got to hit the streets with my bloggy-turned-real-life friend, Genevieve of Mama Natural. As you can see below, Genevieve is a natural in more than one sense and I . . . am not.

I left my lipstick and brush behind in the wrong car, had “airplane” ear so I couldn’t hear myself talk, and managed to be less-than-discreet when sneaking milk out of the dairy section to shoot. Oh well, so what if my forehead and chin are apparently two different colors when I blush? I would dress up like a teenage mutant ninja turtle and break dance in Times Square if it would somehow help get the word out about GMO’s!

Of course, the real highlight of the weekend . . .

Was introducing our boys, whom we both went into labor with on September 11th two years ago. I tried to rest and delay while she embraced the day.

Though I can’t say I would change anything about my son’s story (he was born on the 12th), it’s not because I got the day I thought I wanted. I love his story because it is HIS, but thanks to Genevieve and some time for reflection I have come to believe that every day on the calendar is a gift. If you need a reminder of that today check out this handsome boy’s birth video, which Genevieve shared here. ♥

    Love it!! That was total awesome sauce (as Dawn from Small Footprint Family would say).

    • Heather says:

      Thanks, Jennifer. Speaking of awesome sauce, we had your ketchup with fried clams for lunch today. YUM!

      • Jennifer @ 20 something allergies and counting...down says:

        Yay! If you are a mustard fan, I have 2 versions of a kombucha brown mustard that I need to post. I’ll trade you condiments for your yummy homemade toiletries. 😀

        • Heather says:

          Deal! Does this mean we have to ship messy ingredients or do we just trade recipes?

          • Jennifer @ 20 something allergies and counting...down says:

            The delivery drivers and mailman all know who I am, so I’ll go with recipe swaps. I swear I’m already licking the recipe pics from your book. Did that sound weird? That sounded weird. 😉

  5. Emily @ HolisticKid says:

    Great video! How fun. My question: if I use the beauty products in your new ebook, will I also look this good without makeup? Please say it’s so…
