The Difference An Outing Can Make

The Difference An Outing Can Make

So lately we’ve been making the best out of the great indoors. More so since our brake line rusted*. Well, good news is that it’s been fixed (thank you, Papa Phil), but the time in between nearly drove me insane. Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating a little. I find when I have something to do outsideContinue Reading

I’m feeling pretty domestic.

First roast of the year. Baking cookies. Our new shower curtain. I’m feeling pretty domestic lately. I’ve joined Popinjay, a weekly concept photo challenge. The challenge two weeks ago (give me a break) was domestic. The week before was selfless and this week is caged. Join us why don’tchu? I’ll catch up. P.S. Do youContinue Reading

Charismatic Kid: The New Breed Of Superhero

I had the opportunity to preview Charismatic Kid: The New Breed Of Superhero, a new ebook written by Anthony Recenello aka @charismatickid on Twitter. I’m still in the process of reading it, but I couldn’t wait to share its awesomeness. There are so many “how to parent” books out there and honestly I would neverContinue Reading

Goals. Bucket. Whatever. List.

Greg and I are all into setting goals now matter how big, small, or silly they may seem. So I thought I’d publicize some of the things I’d love to do in my lifetime. This list will continue to grow and I will cross items off as I complete them. What are some of yourContinue Reading

The Obligatory “New Digs” Post

My blog is finally pleasing to my eyes excluding the pages (I’ll fix them when I have a chance). In the past months, I’ve just been too busy and tired to be creative. I’ve finally had the opportunity to spend some sleepless nights making design tweaks. The new look and functionality will help me feelContinue Reading

Green, Clean, & Comfy With Seventh Generation

I am in my fourth and final week of my sustainability challenge. Of course this doesn’t mean that I’m going to stop here. I will continue this conversation as I make changes in our home and as I discover new products and ideas. You may have noticed that I mentioned that Seventh Generation sent meContinue Reading

For the first time in four years…

Signing the lease (1-3). Random shot upstairs (4). (Aug-Sept 2009) We haven’t moved. It’s a wonderful feeling being content and happy in our home. Jayden at 16 months, enjoying his backyard space. (September 2009)

Click It For Breast Cancer Twitter Party #ClickIt4BC

October is Breast Cancer awareness month and any other year, I’d probably been shuffling my feet wondering if this is something I’d want to be involved in. The disease has hit home and now I feel called to be involved in the cause. Greg’s mom is a survivor, recently diagnosed last summer. And while helpingContinue Reading

Sell. Thrift. Repurpose. Repeat.

I am already in week three of my sustainability challenge. Time sure does fly. In my last post, I touched on a few of our sustainable actions at home and some that we need to work on. Well, using the cloth paper towels surely have been a challenge, especially since there are still paper towelsContinue Reading

Summer chugs on by.

Photo taken February 2007, Chicagoland-ish There’s a train that comes running by daily. To most, that would come as an annoyance. I hear it today and I am comforted. Autumn comes to mind. That’s when we moved here. Last year. The sweltering heat, freeze pops, blowing of fans, and sandals pass with each click-clack ofContinue Reading

While the end of summer season awaits us in just a few weeks, it’s not too late to enjoy what’s left of it. This summer has seemed to have flown by and instead of blogging about the season and activities as they happened, I kinda used that time to chill out a bit. So hereContinue Reading
