I Put on Real Clothes for THIS?!

Put on real clothes and makeup and was all ready to go out and buy the college kid his textbooks. He pulled out his laptop, typed in the bookstore name, entered his class names, then 5 minutes and $300 later we were done. Guess I could've stayed in my comfy clothes this morning.

Little things

David stayed home Friday, so we stayed home and I did some little things I'd been meaning to get to (photo editing, making appointments, etc.) 🙂 Greg helped Nick make dinner that night, which was super cute. :)Then later Nick and I had a wine & cheese night. 🙂 It was lovely. Yesterday was a … Continue reading Little things

Stop Pinning, Start Creating!

My friend Godiva and I are participating in Pin -Free February this month. We're each doing it differently, though. She's not going to Pinterest at all, but is still pinning things from her Pin It button. I, on the other hand, am not pinning new things, but am going to my own boards in Pinterest … Continue reading Stop Pinning, Start Creating!

Don’t Just Talk About It, Round Up

Yesterday was the last day of my personal challenge.  I will admit that I was a little sad that no one joined me on it.  Oh well,  moving on.   Here’s a round up of areas that I worked on that I somehow managed not to post photos of earlier in the process.  Some were … Continue reading Don’t Just Talk About It, Round Up

Don’t Just Talk About It, Day 11

For Day 11 I tackled the biggest boys bedroom.   BEFORE: oh my (he assures me that he was trying to find something, which led to this mess.  I love how that happens.) the closet full of mostly my stuff and/or empty containers I don’t have any DURING photos.  I was too busy being busy.  … Continue reading Don’t Just Talk About It, Day 11

Don’t Just Talk About It, Days 9 & 10

I’ve spent the last couple days ( #'s 9 & 10 on the challenge) working on the smaller kids room.   BEFORE: Ben’s closet before (at least the top half of it; no idea why I took just the top half, but look, so many clothes, so many piled games, the bottom half was piled … Continue reading Don’t Just Talk About It, Days 9 & 10

Don’t Just Talk About it, Day One

So I went ahead and started today, just because.    Here’s what the desk area looked like before: A mess, I know.  I went and got my trusty helpers the trash can, the “please put away” box, my chair to hold the “to be filed” items, and the paper recycling bin.  I started tackling the desk … Continue reading Don’t Just Talk About it, Day One

“Don’t Just Talk About it, Do It” Challenge

Beginning in just a little bit, I'm starting a new January challenge.  I really loved the one over at A Bowl Full of Lemons last January, but haven't been able to find anything like it this year for the month, so I'm making one of my own. Here's the plan, each weekday I'm going to … Continue reading “Don’t Just Talk About it, Do It” Challenge

In the mail…

Over the winter break, I entered into a give-away over at Embracing and Being Embraced.  I don't normally enter give-aways, as I never, ever win anything, but this time the give-away was for something I really wanted, so I thought I'd give it a try.  So imagine my joy when I got a message from … Continue reading In the mail…

Week of craziness

(One day soon I hope to come up with better titles…we’ll see.) Thursday last we had a double crazy day.  I baked 6 dozen cookies over the course of the day, those yummy apple caramel cider ones I did last week, but this time with the chunk caramel rather than the bits.  Oh what a … Continue reading Week of craziness
