For the last few years, my husband and I have steadily moved away from store bought gifts at Christmas and towards hand made gifts. This year will be no different. We have a few store bought things (mainly for each other and the kiddos in our lives, plus a few off the wall gifts, like […]
The tree is up, the decorations are out (the ones that managed to survive our cellar flooding last year, anyway), Christmas crafts have commenced and the shopping is actually really close to being done. Wow. And it’s not even December! So, for those of you who don’t know me well, allow me to let you […]
Pre made pizza dough from Trader Joe’s is a wonderful thing to have in your fridge, especially when the youngest member of the household has been struck by a nasty stomach virus and your oldest is running around pretending to be a ninja turtle (cowabunga!).

And with the exception of a small embroidery piece, my fall decorating is complete. About time, too. Two more weeks and it all comes down for the Christmas stuff! So this was my first year to decorate […]
Finally. Six months after the fact, I finally put my hot pink 13.1 magnet on the back of my car. It’s crazy to think it’s been six months since I ran my first mini. It’s crazy to be thinking about running mini marathon #2. First things first, run the 2013 Hangover run on […]
Woohoo! Look at that stash of cloth diapers! I now have 30 barely used AIO, one size fits all cloth diapers (complete with 60 reusable liners and 100 sheets of unopened disposable liners) to add to my stash. A friend of mine tried cloth diapering with her three boys (she’s got three in […]
