Happy Birthday, Maxwell!

My baby is one, y’all.  March 23, 2015, I am officially the mother of one very determined, curious, adorable one year old! Remember when I told y’all I was pregnant, then found out I was having a boy, his black and white nursery, I almost gave birth in the car, then his first 6 months flew by and now… my baby is one. I really can’t believe it. I know everyone says it, but I’m pretty sure time flies by even faster when you are watching your tiny human grow and learn before your eyes. I seriously feel like I didn’t take enough pictures and videos when he was so little!

We had a party animal themed birthday gathering for him this past weekend, I will share the deets soon (sneak peek!). But, today I wanted to share his one year photo shoot taken by the ever awesome Laura Morsman! (She did a little photo session for us when max was 6 months old too.) The pictures were taken at Castle Hill graffiti park here in Austin. This park is exactly what it sounds like, anyone can buy cans of spray paint and graffiti the cement walls of this park. You can make the trek (it’s a little steep and rocky) to the top and check out Austin’s skyline! Since anyone can come and paint, the art is always changing and you never know what you’ll find. We stumbled upon this little gem on our trip in early March… Perfect for our birthday boy!

Laura brought the adorable chair and I made Maxwell the t-shirt!  Look at that sweet face!

Laura is great she is always willing to snap pics on the whim of any idea… I loved this little window and had to get a picture of all of us in it. This park is quirky and it wasn’t exactly easy to just hop up in the window, ha!

I brought a few little props including the monthly blocks!

And Maxwell did what he loves to do and grab the blocks as fast you can put them down!

This is probably my favorite picture of Maxwell from the whole shoot. Oh how I love my sweet baby!

Maxwell got a new mask and tail from the oh so talented, Opposite of Far! We got lots of comments on his adorable mask and tail from park patrons.  Side note: This is not a very safe park for little kids. You have to watch their every move! The park is set up with cement terraces that are each 10-12 feet tall. There are no rails or fences and its almost all cement except for this little patch of grass you see in the picture below at the very top of the park. Maxwell 1st birthday

I’m so happy that Laura got a few really cute pics of the 3 of us! I love how he is holding on to Andy’s shirt.

Oh and I love, love this pic of my little family! Maxwell thinks his tongue (and ours) are pretty neat!

There are so many pictures I want to share! I’m trying to narrow it down to my very, very favorites… Tricky business. Just two more, promise!

And just like that our baby is one. Happy birthday little dude, we love you a bajillion.

Rock your Crock: Crock Pot Pot Roast

Me and the crock pot are back with another ridiculously easy (and delicious!) recipe. (Here’s chicken verde!)  This is one of Max and Andy’s faves, Maxwell loves the carrots.  I love making crock pot pot roast because it’s so dang easy and I feel so fancy when it’s done and the house smells amazing. This is my mom’s pot roast recipe, but she always made it like a real chef in a big pan in the oven.

The easiest crock pot pot roast ever!

 

 

All you need is:

  • A pot roast (Here’s what I do: Go to the butcher section of the grocery store and tell the butcher you need the best pot roast for a crock pot.)
  • 1 can of french onion soup
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 2- 3 potatoes (depending on the size of the tots and your crock)
  • 1 bag of baby carrots (Maxwell loves these, so I cook way more carrots than potatoes)

I’ve heard of people searing the pot roast on the stove before they stick it in the crock pot. I do none of that. That involves dirtying another pan, no thank you.

Oh and another thing: Make sure that your pot roast is 100% defrosted before you put it in the crock pot. I thought it didn’t matter one time, and my roast was not nearly has tender as it usually is!

So, open pour half of the can of french onion soup into the bottom of your crock. Then, add a layer of carrots. Like, so:

Then, throw the pot roast in the crock and smother it in 1/2 the can of cream of mushroom soup. Like, so:

Now, you have to peel your potatoes, I know it’s kind of annoying. But, this is by far the hardest step! And your dinner is going to be amazing. I peel the tots, and cut them into bite sized pieces. Like, so:

The easiest crock pot pot roast ever!

Phew, the hard part is over. High five, friend! Now, add your potatoes around the pot roast and cover with the other 1/2 of the can of french onion soup. Then cover the top of the pot roast with as many carrots as you can. Then add the rest of the cream of mushroom soup! Put the lid on that bad boy, and set the crock for 6 hours on low.

Frolic about your day or chase a crazy 1 year old around or go to work, whatever floats your boat and come home to your house smelling amazing! Take the lid off of your crock, and shred the pot roast:

I sometimes use my rice cooker and make enough brown rice for 2 people for 2 days, and I sometimes just use the boil in a bag brown rice. One packet is the perfect serving for 2! It’s so yummy and so easy. You’re welcome.
