Kid Crafts: DIY Water Paint Sheets

Kid Crafts: DIY Water Paint Sheets

School’s out and I’ve been trying to gather creative ways to keep Jayden busy this summer. I’ve shared how anal I am when it comes to mess-making in the house, but I’m becoming more lax. I always cringe when Jayden wants to pull out the paint. I found a way to eliminate some of theContinue Reading

Call Me Lady Luck

Call Me Lady Luck

{Some of} the blogging community seems to despise sweepers because it seems they only come around for the giveaways, but some of them do stick around for other content. I have a few who do and I appreciate them. Turning the tables around, I can see why sweepers… sweep. I can’t turn my nose upContinue Reading

Surviving the Last of Winter

Surviving the Last of Winter

Monday night’s weather forecast predicted a big snow storm here in the snowbelt. I didn’t want to believe it because weather predictions are frequently off and it’s MARCH for crying out loud!

Lately, I’ve been getting quite a few spam text messages on both of my phones. It’s so annoying, but I chalked it up to being “one of those things”… someone somehow gaining access to my numbers. Yanno, the usual. What didn’t occur to me in the midst of my app happy downloading, that one ofContinue Reading

On Managing Healthy Relationships

On Managing Healthy Relationships

I’m an introvert so naturally that means that I am a little challenged when it comes to managing relationships. It takes me a while to trust others. While I am cautious with my habitual reading and evaluating of people, I do have a great safe circle of friends and family. I also have relationships thatContinue Reading

Hectic Weeknight Dinner

Hectic Weeknight Dinner

At two weeks postpartum, I am JUST gaining the strength back in my lower back. That means I haven’t spent as much time in the kitchen as I would have liked to. Cooking can be such a chore and I don’t like to do it every day. I usually cook in bulk to make sureContinue Reading
