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 […]
Every generation has its lingo I guess. From “Groovy” to “Rad”, exclamations come and go ...
Being a mom is hard – no matter what stage you’re in. It bothers me ...
I love my teenagers. They are fun, and I love spending time hanging out with ...
I’ve alluded to my surgery several times on the blog but didn’t go into major ...
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 […]
Isn’t it nice that the fresh new year starts on a Monday? So much better than the alternative of not having a clean blank slate to start the week. It is COLD here. 18 degrees outside and feels like 4. I don’t know how you people up north can stand weather like this. It is […]
It’s been a few years since I had a theme for my year that could be summed up in a word. Some of my past words were “Simplify”, “Less”, and “Strive”, but the last time I chose a word theme was 2012. As I sat down to make some goals for myself I decided this […]
As 2017 draws to a close I find myself evaluating my year and planning for the next. As many others, I find myself wanting to incorporate new habits into my daily routines and use the fresh slate of a new calendar year as motivation. As I look back on the year, I find myself appreciating […]
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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
