A Little Life Update

I wish I had something more fun/exciting/entertaining/knowledgeable/noteworthy/shocking,etc. for you. But, I don’t. Because for the last two weeks we have been packing up our rental home, moving everything into a storage unit, and moving our essentials into a temporary house until ours is ready late September. Which means a lot of grubby clothes. A lot […]

Lemon-lime Zucchini Bread

My husband saw this recipe from Lilluna.com on Facebook and asked if I would make it for him. I had most of the ingredients on-hand and could substitute the rest so that night while he bathed the kids I whipped this up. And it turned out great! I’m not one for fruity desserts but the […]

Counting Backwards-The Years Left

Sometimes I get frustrated with my kids and with my role as a stay-at-home mom. The days can become repetitive.  They can be long. They can even be lonely. Messes are continually made. Fighting among siblings is a regular occurrence. And maybe sometimes I don’t feel like answering 527 questions in a two minute time […]

What I Wore

This last week has been quite the strange one in our house. We’ve been packing up to move, thus primarily in shorts and a tee. But, on the mornings where I could take the kiddos out and do something for a while before working I did manage to get tidied up a bit.   Jumper- […]

Inexpensive PVC Pipe Waterfall Sprinkler

While visiting my parents this summer we were faced with some pretty hot afternoons, so my dad made the kids this PVC t pipe sprinkler as a fun way to keep them cool. Not being the easiest thing to transport home, The Hubby made the kids one as well once we got home and it […]

Today’s Favorite Things Friday showcases some of my favorite shoes out there right now for UNDER $40. That’s right. They’re totally affordable! Let’s get to it! Cap Toe […]

Riding the House Hunting Gone Wrong Crazy Train

These last couple months have been an emotional roller coaster. Extreme highs, and extreme lows. A few loopdy-loos, too. Back in February we started our house hunting search. It started off fun and exciting, and ended stressful and disappointing. In June we thought we found “the one.” It had many of the qualities The Hubby […]

What I Wore

Once I became a mom it became a little more difficult for me to get “dressed” each day. The easy, most comfortable outfit is the staple yoga pant and t-shirt combo, which I still frequent often, but after a while of feeling sluggish and “blah” I decided to start putting a little more effort into […]

The Organic Painter

There has been a lot going on with our family this past summer, including the decision to sell our first home. The home that I was carried across the threshold in. The home we brought our two babies home in. The home we shared our first four years of marriage in. So, naturally, it was […]
