Monday Musings

Currently… 1. Listening To The Greatest Showman on repeat.  We all love the soundtrack around here.  It’s our go-to car music lately, and we play it loudly in the house during chore time.   2. Eating Not much.  In an effort to reduce my waistline, I’ve put myself on a pretty restrictive diet.  So far […]

It’s blogging day!  I know… it’s been a while.  Life has been busy. My older two daughters were in productions at their schools for the past two weeks.  They both did great jobs.  I was a little more involved in Lila’s show, as I stepped in to be the volunteer coordinator after her theatre teacher […]

Thank goodness it’s above freezing again!  I don’t know how those of you in the North handle the cold.  It was below freezing for about 5 days in a row here and THAT was ENOUGH of THAT!  Today, it’s a balmy 59 degrees and the sun is shining through the windows making it downright warm […]

Lower Your Expectations

Giving is one of my love languages.  I love giving.  I love picking out gifts; I love planning gifts; I love being generous.  It’s no surprise then that Christmas is one of my favorite times of year.  However, for several years in a row I found myself dreading Christmas because I always ended up disappointed.

Monday Musings… on a Tuesday

Yesterday my day was packed, so even though I had good intentions I never got around to blogging. Better late than never? I am ready for Christmas!  My shopping is 100% done.  Yesterday I finished my holiday baking, so teacher gifts are finished.  I still might make a few more treats, but there’s nothing pressing […]

Mozzarella Bites

  These have become some of my kids favorite after school snacks lately – and they’re so easy to make!  They’re also great for a party appetizer.  Who doesn’t like bread and cheese?  The recipe basically has two ingredients (a few more to be fancy)… Have you seen these beauties in your grocery store?  They […]

I’ve already been to the dentist with one of my girls this morning, started laundry, and made our Christmas plans, so I feel like it’s been a pretty productive morning so far.  I actually have quite a lot to do today.  My list is growing as I keep remembering things I need to add to […]
