I have had a lot of questions and requests* on how one’s house can get so messy so quickly. So I thought I’d dedicate a post to helping you trash your home at record speeds. It’s really not as hard as you’d think. I’ve broken it down into 1o steps to help you streamline your […]

Recipe for a Romantic Evening

A few weeks ago, I signed us up for a date night at a local parish. They were hosting a Theology of Dance date night (complete with dinner, a mini retreat, childcare, and dance lessons) all for just $45! A steal, right?! Michael and I rarely go out, and finding someone to babysit is part […]

Five Favorites: Silly Things I Like A LOT

Hi ya’ll! It’s been a while since I’ve done Five Favorites. And you know what? It has a new host. A blogger I had heard about but had never made my way over to before. And guess what? She is so funny. I love her. She does hilarious stick figure stories, and her sarcasm is […]

{7QT} – I’m The Queen of Procrastination

I need to preface this post by mentioning that I wrote it a few weeks ago and have since procrastinated in posting…And now that I’m supposed to be prepping a birthday party, I’m procrastinating again by revisiting the post.

Theme Thursday: Dirt

Linking up with Cari at Clan Donaldson for Theme Thursday. Diggin’ up some dirt! And yes, I’m late! What else is new? Here’s a little video of my darlin’ kiddos helping with the garden last spring. Alasdair was just 16 months, and that’s a 24-month t-shirt! Ha! And Nikki’s wedgie problem? Just LOL! This spring […]

{7QT} – Vol. 3 – St. Valentine’s edition

This post is a part of Jen’s 7 Quick Takes link-up. 1. This video….I’ve not been able to stop thinking about these themes ever since I watched this a few weeks ago. I don’t have any coherent thoughts on it at the moment, but I have been mulling it over and want to listen again. […]

{7QT} vol. 2 – Acronyms and Other Silliness

This is kinda silly. I’ve realized that I am stuck in the 90s with my internet acronyms. I LOL, and occasionally ROFL, although this is rarely literal. It actually does make me LOL when I type LOL and notice that I’m not even sitting here smiling. I wonder what my kids would think if I […]
