Thankful: Theme Thursday

For new (sturdier) glasses and photo-bombing big brothers.

I am thankful for… For my faith, my friends (including you!), my family, and all the blessings in my life.   From today’s reading:   Now go visit Cari for more reasons to be Thankful this Thanksgiving Thursday!  

7 Quick Takes, the pregnant and grumpy edition


I’m leaving for our Friday park day in 30 minutes. Think I can manage some truly quick takes? Yeah. Me neither. But I’ll give it a try anyway. 1. I’m due on Monday. I love saying that. I’ve looked “so pregnant” for so long that people have been giving me the “any day now” comment […]

Ribbon Bookmark Craft: Kid-Made Christmas Gifts


Last night at midnight, as we were installing a new-to-us fridge, I said to Kevin, “I really miss blogging.”  I miss writing and reading and responding to all of you.  But somehow, for the last few weeks, I’ve been up until all hours doing things that are time-sensitive and pressing.  I really only blog at […]

Update on Zeke’s Vision

Electrical tape and all...

It’s been in the back of my mind to get Zeke back to the ophthalmologist  for awhile now.  I was supposed to do it 3 months after the initial appointment, but life got busy, I got pregnant, and then we fell off the “wear a patch every day” hell-wagon and so I kept putting it off. […]

Boss me around… Furniture Rehab Addiction


I bought this table and these chairs for a song last weekend.   I know, I know I shouldn’t be starting projects right now.  But seriously?  A wooden table and 6 chairs for $45?  And another couple (non-matching) chairs for a few more bucks? I couldn’t resist.  I was so smitten that I sent Kevin down to […]

The spirituality of labor and birth

My birthday boy.  5 years old and his birth is still fresh in my mind.  Love you, Gabers.

Welp.  Today marks 37 weeks pregnant.  That means this baby could (but probably won’t) come any day now.  I’ve started having some pre-labor feelings and discomforts and so of course, it’s time to commence with the crazy that is the last month of pregnancy.  The mind games that wonder, “Is this it?” or “Now surely […]

Halloween Quick Takes, plus link-ups


1. Weather. How lame is it that I’m starting my quick takes with one about the weather?  Teeerrrrrrrible, I know.  But do you know what?  It is RAINING outside.  Real, legit rain that actually sounds like it may be flooding our back porch and I could not be happier.  Honestly, I could not.  If you […]

Five Favorites: Crunchy, on a budget.

green works

Diving right in to my favorite things.  {Cue the Sound of Music soundtrack.} {Or maybe this 70’s paraphrase: Won’t you take me down… to Crunchytown?  Won’t you take me down… to Cruuuuuuuunchytown?} No?  Okay, sorry. 1. Frontier Buyers Club Okay all of you budget-minded crunchy people.  It’s time to stop shopping at Whole Foods and […]

Good Job: Theme Thursday


I’ve been on nearly a week’s blogging hiatus.  It’s been… nice.  Not that I don’t love this blog, but sometimes it’s good to detach and realize that not every thought or experience needs to be cataloged here. How have I been spending my evenings, you ask? It’s a valid question, since most of the time […]

Palate Cleanser: Liebster Award, Book Club, Why I Blog

Proof that I shouldn't have to nag them.  (But I still do.)

Once upon a Monday evening I wrote a controversial blog post and somehow got over 10 times my usual number of readers.  Ten times, people.  I was scared as hell to hit publish, but everyone, even those who disagreed with me, have been very charitable.  So thank you all for that.  I love that charity […]
