Birthday List Revisted

Hey, remember this list? Yeah me too. I had forgotten about for a little while there, but it’s back now. I found it collecting dust on top of our refrigerator with a random assortment of other things my husband put out of reach. Still though, even without thinking about it for a few months I’ve…

Cleaning (sort of)

With both the kids and my husband in bed for the night, I found myself once again trying to clean up our house. Its like a battle that can’t be won, but we keep trying to fight. (Like the movie 300, only with 299 less hot guys.) It is so frustrating to spend all of…

Books

I used to read a lot, but having kids kind of made that a hard hobby to find time for. Between work and kids and other responsibilities, there is only so much time for hobbies and I usually chose more crafty pastimes. I think I’ve read MAYBE 3 books in the past 4 years? This…

A Drawing for Delia

I am once again feeling like a total creeper today. This is the third time this year that I have randomly drawn a picture for someone out of the blue. “Hey, I thought this picture of your baby was cute, so I drew it.” Yeah, I’m a weirdo. I’ve said it a million times, sometimes…

Ten Easy Outside Activities

It’s no secret that we love going outside. But I can remember a day, not so long ago, that it wasn’t that important to us. Sure, we got out of the house from time to time. But it always seemed like such a hassle. Like something that needed to be planned and prepared for. Where…

The Comedian

The other night I was washing my face and Juniper exclaimed “Mommy! You look like a moose! You have polka dots on yours nose!” I was laughing so hard! You never know what that girl is going to say… A while back I bought a notebook with the sole purpose of writing down all of…

{Etsy Love} Glow in the Dark

For some reason today I’m finding myself slightly obsessed with the possibility of starting a collection of things that glow in the dark. I did when I was a kid. In fact, I had a bottle of glow in the dark nail polish, and I painted a bunch of random stuff throughout my room. You…

A Drawing for Samantha

I finally got this drawing wrapped up the other day on my lunch break. This one is for Samantha, the winner of my first ever giveaway! I’m not usually very good at full-body shots, but I like the way this one turned out. The small size of the faces made it especially challenging. I’ve decided…
