#90: How I Use Pinterest

It would be hypocritical of me to write a blog entry about how I don’t like social media. And, for the most part, it would be untrue. I love checking Facebook to see what’s going on in the world of my friends, and I go on Twitter spurts from time to time. From time to […]

Slice of My Life

Slice of My Life

Ambulance passes by our house. G: “I thought that ambulance was coming to our house!” Me: Wracked with worry that G’s been traumatized by the four or five times an ambulance has come to our house in the last year “Why were you worried about that?” G: “I fawt [thought] they were coming here because […]

#71: Ya’ Never Know

This is a big week around here. My youngest turns two, and in less than a week, her sister turns four. So pony rides at nearby stables, Chick-fil-A, Minnie Mouse cupcakes, and lots of extra squeezes for them are on the menu. Yowza, how time flies! As much as I could write a tribute to […]

Stuff We’ve Tried: Menu Planning

Stuff We’ve Tried: Menu Planning

One of the things I struggle with in this life of mine is deciding what four people are going to eat for every meal, day in and day out. I read a book once about a woman living in Paris after her children were grown, and she writes something like, “I can’t believe I had […]

#64: Missing the Target

It started, as many epiphanies do, in the middle of a Target store. While I am intimately familiar with the layout of most local Targets, one day found me in uncharted waters – the children’s section. I had wandered from aisle to aisle clutching a multi-page baby shower gift registry, trying and failing to understand […]

#44: I’m a Horrible Mother!

I fed my children pasta with cheese and applesauce for dinner tonight. I let them watch TV just so I could make them this lame dinner. My children ate no vegetables today. One daughter’s room is painted blue and has a duck border. Yuck. The other daughter’s room is pink, but has a half-torn-down border […]

#29: Remembering Why I Love Christmas

#29: Remembering Why I Love Christmas

Our awesome church has created a cute advent calendar for couples in the month of December. The daily activities have included things like watching a favorite Christmas movie together and eating Mexican food (Feliz Navidad!), activities I wholeheartedly support. I have always considered myself a Christmas lover, so it surprised me that one of the […]

#21: Vanishing Act

#21: Vanishing Act

We made the decision very early on not to disappear the way that some newly-married couples do. So two days after Randy and I returned from our honeymoon, we invited some friends and siblings over to help us finish off the leftover wedding cake. Many of my best married girlfriends were in the throes of […]
