I was provided with a bib sample in order to facilitate the review, however, all opinions are solely my own. When I was preparing before E was born, I went out and bought lots of cute little bibs. As I look back (which I find happening more and more these days) I realize I should have done this completely differently. Many of these bibs were cloth bibs, and although they were cute and they often matched his outfits, most of them are now stained from either drinks or baby food. Then I Continue reading >
For years we have had this ugly table kicking around the house. This table needed, no, begged, to be refinished. At one point, Mike decided to sand it down with the idea of refinishing it. Unfortunately, it stayed in this unfinished state for quite some time. I had actually thought of getting rid of it, but I decided to take a stab at refinishing it first. I figured if the refinish turned out to be a disaster then I could always throw it away then. I have decorated my house in a rather country Continue reading >
I absolutely hate filling out paperwork, in particular medical paperwork, but it isn't for the reason you may think. Of course I have no problem filling out my medical history and the mundane things such as name, birthday, and address, but then I get to the blank that says "occupation." Most of the time I either write "homemaker" or "stay at home mom." Of course whenever I give the form to the receptionist she looks at it and says "So you are unemployed, right?" If you want to consider unemployed Continue reading >
It's really no secret that I am a huge Survivor fan. I got hooked on the show back in Season 19 in Samoa...yes, the season where Russell Hantz made his debut. Now, seven seasons later I am still hooked! Now the winner of season 26 has just been named and I have to say I am thrilled about the choice! This season has been a great season which is refreshing after several lackluster seasons. After many twists, turns, and blindsides, John Cochran, Dawn Meehan, and Sherri Biethman were the last Continue reading >
Last week I talked about creating a pallet garden, but I had not yet added any flowers to it. Finally, the weather is nice enough that I have been able to put the herbs and flowers out. Check out the progression!
"We have detected a high reading on your water meter. This higher than normal consumption indicates that you may have an internal leak, possibly a toilet leak." This is the sort of letter than no homeowner ever wants to receive in the mail. Unfortunately, last week we received one. I was aware that one of the toilets upstairs had been running a lot and had been telling M that we needed to fix it, but it took him a while to get around to it. Now, we have a serviceman from the municipal authority Continue reading >
Tommy Nelson provided me with a copy of the Hermie and Friends DVD in exchange for this review. All opinions are solely my own though. E is just starting to watch movies and television, and although I'm not sure he really understands what goes on or the full extent of what they are saying, I am already keeping an eye on what he watches. There are so many negative influences out there, that it is important to make sure children are exposed to positive messages as well. Today I have a great Continue reading >
I have never been a huge gardener. While I was in graduate school I lived in a second story apartment, and after that I lived in a townhouse where we weren't allowed to tear up the grass. After Mike and I got married we had a house but it wasn't great for planting, plus while I was working full time, I just wasn't interested. Now that I am a stay at home mom, and have (slightly) more time I have become more interested in planting some of my own herbs, vegetables, and flowers. Another motivating Continue reading >
