Big Thanks

DIY Success…one room looks lived in, moved in to and precious. Thank you Dennis!

This took 3 days, a couple dollars (ahem) and the hard work and persistance of my husband to complete. What I think will take a couple hours ended up taking much more than that, but it is done. I am . . . → Read More: Big Thanks

My First DIY

That is “Do It Yourself” for all of us not up with the lingo these days. My idea of a decorated house is a kit of shelves, mirrors, and frames packaged by Bed Bath and Beyond and purchased on sale with a coupon. I’m just not that talented at decorating and far less original. My . . . → Read More: My First DIY

Maybe I’m just emotional

Time for another reflection. Are you bored with those? This 3rd baby is coming. Whether I am ready or not. (the latter would be a more accurate description).

What I love about my J-O-B

I originally wrote this post long ago, but never published it. I had to publish it immediately cause it is so true. I no longer get those snuggles in bed, the kids are hard at work on their “morning routine” and getting ready for our new season of school days. Nor, will you hear them . . . → Read More: What I love about my J-O-B

“That day”…has come (a reflection)

But lets not be dramatic, ok? Its only kindergarten. Except… it’s kind-der-gar-ten. A big milestone in my world. I’m not sure I even have the words to articulate what is filling my heart this week.

Monday Menu Challenge, Week 2

Or is it 3? I don’t remember. I found this recipe out of an All You magazine and thought it was really good. It it going to be a keeper based on my criteria, however, I’ll probably make it a yummy weekend lunch or something rather than a dinner staple.

Purge, purge and check off list.

Well, what do you know? I write a post of ideas swirling in my mind of things to get done and the very next day I get a flyer in my mail for a community garage sale. (one of my items on the list: purge and deep clean). Honestly, I didn’t know if I was . . . → Read More: Purge, purge and check off list.
