Little Boy Haircuts 2016

  My little guy was in need of a new haircut. Little boy haircuts are not nearly as fun as little girl haircuts…or so I thought. My sister is getting married in a few weeks and Chaucer is a ring-bearer. I will probably die of cuteness. As will the rest of the wedding audience. I… Read More »

3 Cheap, Easy, and Clean Meals

So…I started a thing last Friday, and I’m trying real hard to be a good girl and follow through. Friday’s Favorites. Today I want to share a little insight into our diet. People are starting to notice that we have…shrunk, a bit. My husband (annoyingly) has lost WAY more weight than I have. But that… Read More »

5 Tips For Decorating A Small Space For Christmas

Decorating for Christmas is probably one of my all time favorite things to do. Pulling out those Christmas boxes and unwrapping each tiny trinket and ornament is something I’ve enjoyed ever since I was a little girl. If I had the space, I would be one of those Christmas hoarders who owns a storage unit… Read More »

I cannot control any of my children

I last left you with my Halloween predicament. Thanks to my shrewd dispensation of passive aggressive tactics, I was able to steer Coco away from the $100 Disney Descendants costume and had her angling for a Cinderella getup. *Phew!* All it took was a casual perusal of Pinterest where pin after pin showed puffy gowns and shimmering… Read More »

In this house, Halloween trumps Christmas with respect to being the most… Read More »

Since You’ve Been Gone…

Creating Stories With RealTimes

Even though my memory is jam-packed with delicious images of childhood and adolescence, there are only a few home videos available for my viewing pleasure. Why? Because we didn’t have a video camera. We do have a few prized videos that are recorded on Uncle Ed’s or Mrs. Wallace’s camcorders. Watching those dodgy videos is… Read More »

5 Tips For Self Care

At 30 years of age, I’ve been all over the map as far as health goes. I have been vibrant, plump, and thriving. I have been diminished, thin, and failing. I have been pregnant and swollen. I have been post-partum and sagging. And while there is a happy medium somewhere in between all of those… Read More »

Summer Bucket List With Kellogg’s

Summer is *almost* here. After Christmas break, I dreaded the coming of summer. Why? Because it meant no school, and without school, I’m left with a very busy little girl who needs constant activity. But now that it’s *almost* here, I’m excited. I’m excited to have days of relaxation and adventure in equal parts. Having… Read More »

#tbt: Mother’s Day

It’s Thursday. Lets throw it back, shall we? Mother’s Day has come and gone. And while we’ve all performed our obligatory services to our mothers, I’m still sitting here thinking. Motherhood is no easy task, yo. Like, a card? A card and flowers as a thank you? Really? We carry these babies for nine months. We… Read More »
