Shoppin’ and Science

in All Posts

Headed to Target to buy myself a new bathing suit.  We’re going to Florida for vacation this weekend.


But it’s much more fun to shop for Henry.  I got him this new outfit to wear when he meets his great-grandpa – we’re going down for his 95th birthday party.

We kind of match. Winking smile




A combo of lentils and baked beans:


And parsnip fries.  All you do is peel the parsnips, slice ‘em, drizzle them in olive oil and dust in salt, and bake for 25 minutes at 425.


My Head Just Exploded


Did you hear that Curiosity the Rover landed on Mars today?  I watched a video on the logistics of actually landing the rover on the surface and it blew my mind.  All I could think is, “Humans are CRAZY smart!”


And to think… the smartest thing I did today was buy baby clothes on clearance.  Smile

    Love the new suit! And Henry will be SO cute in that outfit!

  • Courtney @ Brussel Sprouts and Beer August 6, 2012, 2:49 pm

    I am with you…it is crazy to me how smart us humans are and with all the technology we have, are actually able to land a robotic car onto Mars to collect samples.

    CUTE swimsuit!!!

    I am impressed with how far we’ve come for sure–technology and what has happened in the past 10 yrs is amazing!

    Love the suit and love Henry’s outfit! Great-grandpa will love it too, I’m sure! People always think shopping for baby girls is so much fun but don’t you think shopping for a baby boy is great!! I love buying our little man new outfits. 😉

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat August 6, 2012, 3:14 pm

    That is such a cute bathing suit Caitlin! Also, very cute outfit for Henry. I always enjoy shopping for myself, but I REALLY like shopping for babies! I don’t do it often, but I love looking at all the little clothes, especially shoes. Super cute!

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats August 6, 2012, 3:17 pm

    Hahaha, God gave us all different gifts, some send things to Mars, others take care of adorable babies!

  • KatieTX August 6, 2012, 3:45 pm

    I actually have a friend directly involved in the rover landing on Mars. Pretty cool stuff!

  • Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See August 6, 2012, 3:57 pm

    Definitely curious to hear more about what Curiosity will tell us 🙂 That graphic is mindblowing!

  • Ali August 6, 2012, 4:18 pm

    Cute suit! I love clearance shopping, especially for kid’s clothes!

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles August 6, 2012, 4:22 pm

    Baby clothes on clearance is definitely smart in my book – I’ve seen how expensive they can be from high end stores! 🙂

  • Stellina @ My Yogurt Addiction August 6, 2012, 4:36 pm

    Some people are so smart it’s crazy! But I find that often times, a lot of those people lack a little bit of “common sense” if you know what I mean 😉 Love the baby clothes! 🙂

  • Courtney August 6, 2012, 4:51 pm

    The toddler I babysit for has that exact same outfit! It’s super cute 🙂

  • julia August 6, 2012, 4:53 pm

    I take it beans don’t bother Henry’s tummy? I’m afraid of beans right now as everything seems to bother my little guy.

  • Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs August 6, 2012, 4:57 pm

    Cute suit! Love the shade of blue!

  • Shari August 6, 2012, 5:04 pm

    His 95th birthday party … what a blessing! 🙂

  • Kelly August 6, 2012, 7:00 pm

    Cute suit!

  • Alex @ Raw Recovery August 6, 2012, 7:00 pm

    Hey but you also MADE a baby! Let’s see the rover do that! 🙂 I went to Target yesterday and walked past the baby clothes. I miss footie pajamas.

  • Keri August 6, 2012, 8:01 pm

    I don’t even have kids (yet), and I’m pretty sure I should get a second job now (no rocket scientist at this house) so I can save up to buy clothes. Kids clothes are so stinkin’ cute!

  • Lori Lynn August 6, 2012, 8:25 pm

    Where did you buy your parsnips? I haven’t had them since I was a little kid, and wouldn’t have any idea how to buy them.

    • Caitlin August 7, 2012, 8:35 am

      At our grocery store; they are sometimes in the produce section!

  • Erin Margaret @ Bishella August 6, 2012, 9:46 pm

    Oooh, cute bathing suit. Enjoy your vacay in Florida. I’ve got 2 more weeks until Myrtle Beach!! 🙂

  • Danielle August 7, 2012, 7:55 am

    Hooray for 95 years old! Great-grandpa will be happy to see everyone!

  • Ellen @ Wannabe Health Nut August 7, 2012, 1:47 pm

    Ohh Henry’s gonna rock that cute little outfit! 😉

    You have totally turned me onto TJ’s lentils. Love the idea of pumping them up with beans and adding over spinach. Thanks!

  • Janelle August 7, 2012, 4:46 pm

    Just curious…are you flying with your little guy or driving? I have a 7 week old and we are debating whether we should drive or fly to our (8ht away) destination. Dr says flying is fine but I worry about the pressure and his ears.

    • Caitlin August 7, 2012, 6:35 pm

      We are driving. We are taking a ton of stuff down!

  • Taylor @ Nuts for Apples August 7, 2012, 11:46 pm

    um wow…just watched that video! that is INSANE! I feel a little stupid now 😉 it takes special minds to pull that stuff off! crazy!

  • MegaNerd August 10, 2012, 9:50 am

    Jealous you’re going to FL. I have the same bathing suit in the non tankini form 🙂

  • kristen @ livinlifeinlouie August 12, 2012, 9:25 am
